Fitness on the First: Non-Scale Victories!

I am obsessed with numbers.  Any type.  But specifically numbers that cause me to be critical with myself.  For the past 2 months I have been doing Kaia (read about my first blog post on it HERE!)  It is a full body workout, for WOMEN, that includes cardio (minimal running, yesssss!), strength, interval training...and at the end of the day it TONES YOU UP! 

Here is a little note that welcomed us last week to class...


One thing that I have been learning through Kaia is the concept of non-scale victories.  This means, I don't measure my progress, worth, or success through numbers on the scale.  This is almost impossible, but I am learning!!!  

Here are some of my non-scale victories:

1.  I can now touch my toes from a standing position.  This might not sound like a big deal, but this is the first time in my life that I have EVER been able to do this!  Kaia has increased my flexibility, and this is a HUGE victory in my book!

2.  I did my first double under.  This means when jump roping, I jumped up once, and the rope went under me 2x!!!  Of course, the first time I did it, I screamed out of excitement and that made me get tangled up... but after that I was able to do it again!

3.  I beat my fitness test times.  Here is a picture of a 6 week boot camp record sheet,  at the 1st, 3rd, and 6th week we did a fitness test.  Basically the main thing to notice is that my numbers went up!!  (except the mile time ;)


4.  I started cooking.  One of my goals was to cook dinner 1x a week, and last week I did it 2x!!!! Chicken and different sides.  This is my breakfast one morning, please ignore the plastic fork...our wedding is just around the corner, so hopefully we will get silverware! ha!


I am in Orange County, but there are Kaia gyms all over.  If you are around, come try it out with me... you get the first week for free!!!

  2. Congratulations on getting healthier. Focusing on something other than the scale is a great idea. I need to get back on my food journal. It helps me focus on eating healthier, exercising more, and drinking enough water. Life with Mrs. L

  20. Probably, you lack a typically "fit" looking body. But that https://www.liveinternet.ru/users/majagalat/post474690455/ doesn't mean that you are not fit. You can be fit irrespective of the way your body looks.
