    @NovusDies — Yay for new pictures! If you’ve avoided the camera as desperately as I have over the years, that is a big deal! I hope you find a shirt and jacket that make you feel great.

    I am sorry though to hear about your other reason for needing the nice clothes. It’s such a difficult situation, and there is still grief even when the death is a “blessing.” You’ll definitely be glad you’re not scrambling to find something that fits at the last second!

    My NSV today was getting in over 20,000 steps. Ending the day at around 21,417. Previous best (very recent) was 18000ish.

    My best a few weeks back would only be like 12k. Been really pushing myself lately to be more active.

    Nice. I hate you, but nice.

    My highest so far was a little over 14k. I have been consistently getting over 10k since last Friday when I believe the BP med finally stopped working. It was an interesting run with the intermittent low BP days and the dizziness. On days I felt really good 10 was almost automatic. On days I felt bad I was lucky to get 7 and it was a chore.

    @jjlewey I really like that with the Black card after I do my workout I can go lay in the water message bed and it relaxes my muscles! Great way to end a hard workout!

    NSV for today: I'm wearing a shirt that didn't fit a week ago :)

    It finally passed the "sitting test", where it didn't look like a button was going to pop at stomach-level when I sit, ha.


    LOL. I'm impatiently waiting on several tops to pass the "sitting test".

    I jogged! Just a tiny bit, but I did it. I’ve been contemplating trying a C25K program but couldn’t quite get up the nerve. Yesterday on my walk, I was on a stretch of the path that goes behind houses, with no one around. So I decided to run to the last house, and I made it! I did a couple more short intervals after that but didn’t want to push too hard my first time out. I’m clueless on pacing, and form for that matter, but it’s a start!

    Am wearing a new skirt that has hung in my closet for the past 3 years. It's a 14!

    I have clothes in my closet that I outgrew many years ago but refuse to get rid of because I love them so much. They are part of my future "NSV" hopes. :wink:

    Way to go! That's a huge NSV to go to the gym much less rock it out when you are under the weather. That's awesome! I finished my gym routine for this week last night. I had planned to just do the exercise bike (rehabbing knee) and lift some light leg weights but someone was camped out at my main machine so I ended up taking a Zumba class instead. It was really fun with lots of hip hop dancing. So glad I did it. Today I am sore from my double work out but it's my massage day so I'll get it worked out. Hope you feel better soon. Sinus infections are the worst!

    @conniewilkins56 Sometimes the biggest victories are the things you DIDN’T do! Great job staying in control!
