Weight loss journey: week 14

Look back and smile

This week was pretty bad. My 1200/1400 calories per day was a fiasco. I stuffed my face with cookies and treats. My daughter needs a snack in first grade at school. So I bought some treats for her and ended eating it all. Yes, I can't have things like that at the house. That's it. 
Then, I went boxing 2 hours instead of 3 (my goal a week). My wrist started bothering me so I skipped the 3rd hour. Well I could have gone walking. Nope, I stayed home and all I could think about was when hubby and I could watch more vampire diaries episodes (I am on season 2).
I got super depressed about my failure this week and  what I want my body to look like. I told myself that it was ok because I have come a long way from not working out for 15 years to even doing boxing or walking for 1 hour easily.
I am going to look back and worry less about how much I have to go.

I still manage to burn 1000 calories for 1 hour of boxing. That's pretty good!
What is your motivation to exercise?

Sticking with a routine can be so difficult sometimes. I find that if I take a days break I'm okay, but if I go for longer than that I don't get back on track.

I love brisk walking and spinning at the gym. Last year I lost 22 lbs. and kept it off, by not eating carbs and sweets and by alternaiting this two work outs. Kepp it up dear Isabelle. The boxing sounds amazing! Have a happy Sunday.

Just stopping by to see how you are doing in your journey. I am the same about having things in the house but I am getting better at being able to resist it. I remind myself that there are consequences for eating the snack and I go get my fiber bar if I feel I must have something. I admire you and you are an inspiration for me. I am learning to think differently about food but you are out there working out and boxing!!!! Sounds amazing to me. Go get'em. Hugs, Beverly

I am having a bit of difficulty in continuing on my weight loss journey. I have lost 9 pounds in 6 weeks. I am not being as good as I should be. My real issue is not exercising as much as I should be. I must continue to remind myself that it's not a race but a lifestyle change and lifetime journey.
