I forgot to step on the scale yesterday for my weekly weight in so I did it this morning. Even though I didn't do as well as I intended to regarding to my food intake (2 birthdays in the family last week...), even though I didn't consistently exercise, I did loose weight - which I'm hoping never to find again). Not as much as planned, but close enough to my goal so that I'm actually feeling successful instead of a failure.
Yesterday was a tough day. I almost went to bed without exercising but had second thoughts about that... so I just put Coach Nicole's Jump Rope video on and did the full workout. Ok, it's only ten minutes and I remember a time when this was no challenge for me, when it didn't leave me short breathed. But that's ok, I'll reach that point again, later. And I felt really good after this short workout, first for sticking with the commitment and also because, well, one does really feel good after a workout, no matter how small provided it's been challenging.
So this morning, right after I got up and prepared my kid's breakfast, I put the video on again and did the full workout. And then, during the day, we went out for a walk the little one and I. We only walked for 40 minutes but that's better than if we had stayed home not being active.
So there's progress and I celebrate that progress tonight (not with food though, I just rejoice ;)).
