5 on Friday: Non Scale Victories

We made it to Friday! I'm headed to Nashville for Alyssa's Bachelorette this weekend and I'm so excited to spend a weekend with some of my best friends celebrating our girl! To kick off the weekend, I'm sharing some non scale victories I've had recently on this BBG/21 Day Fix/get it together life I'm living.

one // I'm back in my skinny jeans/leggings! A few weeks ago, I was cleaning out my closet and there were some skinny jeans that I've had there "just in case" and was ready to throw them out. As a last ditch motivator, I tried them on... and they FIT! I didn't throw them away and they've started fitting better and better since that day! Then, on Tuesday, I grabbed a pair of leggings in the dark and didn't realize it was the hot pink pair that I've been avoiding recently and again, THEY FIT! I was feeling so motivated for that workout!

 two // Energy levels. So, yes, some mornings waking up early is HARD and I don't want to do it. And yes, I occasionally get the 3 pm yawns, but overall, I have more energy. I'm waking up earlier on the weekends and getting more things done throughout the day.

three // Motivation. Now that I'm working out more consistently, I am more motivated to stay active throughout the day. You know, that whole "body in motion stays in motion" thing. If you read my "day in a life" post Wednesday, you saw that I try to get in an afternoon walk every day. I also attempt to stand up and take a lap around the building every time my Fitbit tells me to. At night, we walk Ellie anytime the weather is up to it and Christian isn't still working at 9 pm.

four // It's getting easier! This statement is misleading. I am still dying in almost every BBG workout but that's because I've upped my weights and can get through more circuits during the 7 minutes than I could the first week.

On week 1, I couldn't even get through the full 28 minutes - now I can do multiple circuits within the 28 minutes!

five // I actually want to work out. I never really thought this would be something I would say about something that isn't barre. I still LOVE barre, but I needed to mix it up and I feel sad when I miss a workout because it's time to show up for me to better myself and I'm learning that I need that.

Linking up for 5 on Friday with April and Christina
