NSV Link UP!

Morning all!  Today I am linking up for Non-Scale Victories with Lex & Katie. Lord knows I have had more NSV then Scale Victories.  I have struggled for so long about that silly number on the scale that I had basically just given up.  No matter how hard I tried to get out of my funk it is like I just made it worse which is unreal to me.  Why?? Why?? Why?? do we do this to ourselves?  So diet after diet, different work out gadgets and fads finally after about 5 years I have figured out NONE of that is going to work at all because my mind has already set me up for failure.  As I was either buying some new product to help or just starting a new diet I realized I was already on what could I try next.  Yeah, that is setting myself up for success isn't it!  So what changed?  Honestly I don't really know it was like something inside my head just clicked and I realized the bottomless pit I was in.  Now don't get me wrong I have a LONG way to go, but my success today is that I have started and my attitude is focused on what I am doing instead of what I am going to be doing.  I am still struggling with the eating piece it is hard for me to decide what to eat or what I even want to eat.  So that is still a struggle but I am taking it day by day.
My workouts is another one of my NSV's I have actually been active 6 out of 7 days a week for the last month.  That is truly a record for me.  I always start off with a bang but I end with a big fat THUMP! 
I also have discovered running (which I NEVER EVER EVER thought I would be able to do)  I always told myself I couldn't do and wouldn't be able to well my momma always said couldn't or wouldn't never helped anybody and she is so right! Don't tell her I said that BTW. I have worked myself up from not running at all to running 2.5 miles without stopping. My long term goal is to run a 5k in December.  They are having one of those colors runs here in the next town over and it seems like a fun thing to do for my first race.  So my next NSV goal I have is to actually pay the fee and sign up.  So there it is my NSV for today!
