Slipped, but Dying not to fall!
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I really need to write this. Primarily so I can read it to myself. Over the last three weeks I have slowly ceased all excersize. I am not even too sure why. I enjoyed the running and the biking. I was loving the results! I even set myself challenging goals that I would chase after to keep it interesting. I swore that this time around I wouldn't stop.
It started with me not wanting to do my push ups routine anymore. This app I downloaded slowly increased my reps and it got to the point where it was really hard work to keep up. So I dreaded the days I had to do it. First I would miss a day and just make it up the next day. Then I just stopped making it up. Eventually, the situps and pullups routines also followed. The crazy thing is, I love the changes it was making to my body. Noticeable ones. Very motivating! Not sure why I lost it. Bored? Then I stopped running... and then for whatever reason (pure laziness I think) I stopped tracking my calories.
I quickly started to feel negative effects to my body. I don't like it. I want to get back. I started yesterday again. I was afraid to weigh myself because I felt like I had easily put back on 10+ pounds. Fortunately, I think I had already trained myself in eating the proper amounts because I've only gained back 3 pounds over the course of these 3 weeks. 182 pounds back to 185 pounds. Not too much damage. I am not doomed.
I plan on basically starting over. Yesterday I tracked my calories. I went on the stationary bike for 30 minutes. I joined a new challenge on MapMyRun. That should keep me motivated for at least the next 5 weeks. I know that I have to keep myself entertained. Repetitiveness ultimately bores me. I need a new activity. I plan on purchasing a punching bag and doing my cardio there a couple times a week. Seeing as my LONG term goal is to compete in 12 full rounds of boxing.
This is me telling myself to get back on track. Go back to feeling good! I can do this!
