My NSV for today!

Today is day 5 of my current streak!

I just had a great NSV and I had to share it! It just happened and I'm still so psyched.

I've been working out and eating healthy foods since last March. I workout every day and I love it. I do cardio, strength and yoga. (Yoga is my favorite. I don't like cardio, but I do it anyway!)

Since last March, I've really changed my body. I've lost 71 lbs, and I've gotten stronger and more flexible. I've built muscle. Beneath the layers of fat that I'm still working hard to burn, I can feel the muscles and firmness.

Yes, I can FEEL the muscles, but I can't SEE them. There is just too much fat covering them, but I'm not discouraged by that. I know that if I keep working hard...doing that dreaded cardio and building muscles through strength training....I WILL burn that fat away and reveal the muscles beneath.

Well, just a little while ago, I was in the kitchen making a cup of tea. I'm wearing my "warrior gear" (as I call my workout clothes)....shorts, t shirt and a bandana. Hubby came in and said "Wow, look at your legs!"

I said "What about them?" and he said "I can see your calf muscles!" Well, I immediately had to go look at myself in the full length mirror, and he is right! My calf muscles are visible!

Finally, after almost a year of working out, I have muscles that I can see, not just feel! I still have enormous upper arms, and a bit of a Santa Claus belly, but my calf muscles show...and that motivates me to keep working hard, because I know that eventually those stomach muscles and arm muscles will make an appearance too!

And that is my NSV for today!
