The Scale Doesn’t Lie 1/5/13

This weeks The Scale Doesn’t Lie post has a different tune. With my recent post of “Monday Came” is has really sunk in with me that if I push my body that just wants to move. I mean it really does want to move. If I just feed it some movement, it’s going to reward me for it.

I’ve neglected movement for so long. The only real movement I got was getting up to go to someone’s desk at work. I used to bitch about having to get up and go. To be honest now…..I want to see the steps on my fitbit go up…lol

A few weeks ago my goal with my fitbit was only at 5000 steps. I’ve rocked the 10K steps club people and it freaking feels great.

I’ve pushed myself and it feels wonderful feeling.

I also have asked on Twitter to my fitbloggin friends with no response….lol but anyway this falls under a non-scale victory but I asked “What if anyone can remember was the hardest thing for me to do, while doing cross fit at Fitbloggin this past year?”  (this is the longer version than the 140 character version on twitter…lol)

I’m sure my friend Sean from Learn Fitness remembers as he was my partner/spotter for it. I needed help getting up off the ground. I couldn’t do it myself.  You can see towards the end of this video, I’m just laying down while other partners and spotters are standing up and cheering their partner on.

Last night I was stretching out my back laying on the floor and kid you not without even thinking about it I got up and didn’t use anything to hold on to for support.

I was like I freaking rock now. Did I just do that? So you know what I did? I did it again and then you know what I did after that….I did it again. I even woke my wife up to show her that I could do it.

I’ve got a big smile on my face because I’m wondering what’s next?

    • Amanda,

      Thanks ls for comment. Absolutely. That was one of my downfalls previously. I never embraced those I just shrugged them off and was looking at the big number of losing the weight. Those little things are meaning so much more to me now.

      Thanks again for your support.

  2. Jess this is just an awesome post. I was struggling to think of what it was when you tweeted. Such an amazing feeling to just do something. :-)

    • Lol I figured for most they were in their own moments during cross fit and prob didn’t even see me.

      Thanks for supporting me. Are you making the trip to Portland?

  3. I’m not on twitter as much as I’d like. Congrats man, that’s great progress. From the weight loss to the NSV your bringing the new year in with bang!

    • I know you know how I struggled just getting up off the ground at FB. So when I did it, I knew you would be able to relate first hand as you were the one that helped and seen the struggle.

      I’m battling real hard. Thanks for all your support and guidance along the way it means the world to me.

  4. Impressive, I have seen you go from my top 20 on fitbit, to top 10, to top 5, now your 3rd and the top two (me and another) are constantly at 100K plus. You have been moving like a boss the last few weeks keep it up. You are getting close to pushing that 100k steps mark great job!

    • Mike,

      Tha ls so much for coming here and giving me support. It really means a lot. Yeah man I’m pushing real hard. I had my goal set for 5000 then I was hitting that and mostly going over like 7500 so one night at the gym I was like I want to see how my body reacts to 10k once I hit it I made it my new daily goal.

  5. People take for granted in what we find to be some of the most incredible moments in our journey’s.

    I’m not going to lie to you Jess, I’m totally tearing up over the following:

    “Last night I was stretching out my back laying on the floor and kid you not without even thinking about it I got up and didn’t use anything to hold on to for support. I was like I freaking rock now. Did I just do that? So you know what I did? I did it again and then you know what I did after that….I did it again. I even woke my wife up to show her that I could do it.”

    I’m tearing up because I know most people wouldn’t even begin to understand that the relatively small action can feel like something big is happening. I don’t know what it feels like to not be able to get off the ground with out support but I know what it feels like when one of those moments come into our lives that shows us there is a method to our madness.

    Please don’t ever give up on yourself my friend. The world needs you.

    xoxo T

  6. I have a sign on my office wall, right beside me now, that says, “One of the greatest moments in life is realizing that two weeks ago, your body couldn’t do what it just did.”

    Congrats on the milestone!

  1. [...] very happy to be posting these as my journey continues. Progress comes in so many forms. From getting up off the ground to walking 10K steps in a day. Progress is not always what the scale says. I need to remind myself [...]
