What’s the hard part?
Since I have started counting calories and working out, it’s been pretty easy on me. So far I haven’t been hungry because all I do is making better food choice. I always ended up the day under my calorie goal. Also I almost always drink my 8 glass of water and I have worked out every day so far. I feel very proud of myself but…
I’ve noticed that something changed today. After I’ve finished the boxing exercise on the Wii, it told me that I have burned 73 calories. It sounds alright except that normally it says 75 calories. I am now aware that the less we weight the fewer calories we burn for the same exercise. It means that I am losing weight YES! BUT it means that I will eventually have to increase the amount of exercise I do every day…that’s not so funny now hey?
All this just made me realise that I am in the easy part right now and it’s only going to get harder and harder. I thought somehow that starting the whole process of changing my bad habits for healthier ones was the hard part! Does eating healthy food and exercising everyday sounds like the hard part to you? It does to me but looks like there is more to come. The worst thing for me will be to keep at it for more than a year. Let’s say that I am better at starting a project than finishing it!
Well that enough fear and negative thoughts for today. What’s on the bright side? I am 12 pounds less! Another 10 and I should start to see a difference in my clothes, I can’t wait for it to happen, and it’s going to be a big victory for me! I can do it! I just have to look forward to the positive things it will bring along.
