Hi, JESSA3454 !!

If you feel like you can't keep up with a workout after two weeks, you probably tried to do too much too soon for your body to handle. If you went from a completely sedentary lifestyle to trying to kickboxing 4 days a week, that was too much. It might not seem like a lot to you, but combined with the decrease in calories, it is.

food = energy and no food = no energy

So, if you decreased your caloric intake and increased the amount of exercise you do, it means your body has fewer calories to perform your normal daily bodily functions.

Don't try to do too much too soon or you will end up fatigued, burned out or injured.

I would suggest that you slowly ease into a routine so that any exercise you do will become just that, a routine that you won't give up. How about cutting back on the kickboxing to 1-2 times per week along with taking a daily 30 minute walk. There are members who will tell you how they lost 100+ pounds just by walking and watching what they ate.

I suspect that you really need to be more patient with your body. If you continue the workout on a regular basis, with time, you will improve. But you need to give your body time to adapt and adjust. It takes time to change your body.

I started eating well and exercising two weeks ago. I eat decently healthy I believe. I take a multivitamin everyday too. I was doing 30 minutes of kickboxing about 4 days a week, with strength training and 1 day of rest. I don't think that's too much.. but now suddenly I can't keep up with it anymore and I had to do less time. It is just a video on my comcast on demand. Am I doing something wrong, not resting enough.. etcc? I just want to keep exercising and not fall into the same slump again. I am 21 and 5'9 145 pounds. Thank you.
