Halfway There!


Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Today is the 3-Month Anniversary of my 6-Month commitment to exercise EVERYDAY!

So far, I've stuck with TaeBo Basic in the mornings. I've persevered through sickness, schedule irregularities, baby births, vacation, touring schedules, interruptions by well-meaning family and friends, juicing, eating raw vegan, scale fluctuations... you name it.

I told myself that I would stick to daily exercise for 6 months, then evaluate my progress. I wouldn't ask, "why?", or, "Is this working?" I would simply honor my commitment to myself and demand consistency in this one area.

I'm down 20 lbs. so far, but the bigger reward is learning how that consistency has affected my perception of my efforts. I feel that I have the longevity and the 'stick-to-itiveness' to see my goals through, and to learn to maintain my success in the long term, rather than faltering after the excitement has worn off.

I've fiddled around with different ways of eating (I'm trying Paleo this week), and seeing what affect those things have on my weight loss efforts. I have learned that you can actually gain weight while exercising if you're not eating right. That's a pretty important piece of information.

I've gained lots of muscle tone, and increased confidence. I'm ready to up my exercise goals, and kick it into a higher gear for these next 3 months.

Thanks so much to those who have cheered me on thus far!

Total to lose: 91.6 lbs.
Total lost so far: 19.6 lbs.
Total remaining: 72 lbs.

I also have "food ADD" am always tweaking. I'm not as adventurous as you though! Glad to hear you have picked up momentum and are succeeding...

    Such a good blog -- your statement 'I told myself that I would stick to daily exercise for 6 months, then evaluate my progress. I wouldn't ask, "why?", or, "Is this working?" I would simply honor my commitment to myself and demand consistency in this one area.' was very profound to me -- that's what I have failed to do in all my attempts -- to honor anything and while I've not given up ever - I just don't 'try as hard' as I had been. I need to dig deep and find that -- thanks so much for voicing what I needed to hear!
