Still Kickin

5 years ago

Almost 2 months! I've been kickboxin for almost 2 months, I've lost 19 pounds, and I feel hopeful that this will continue. One thing I can say about kickboxing is, it's intense. My body hurts on a daily basis, but without that pain I wouldn't have a mental check-in everytime I move, and for now, I need that.

Of course, I've had a few set backs, everyone does, but for the most part I think I've been doing great. I constantly have to remind myself that this is a lifestyle, not a diet, because the difference for me is  huge! A diet means I will binge from time to time, and try to starve myself to balance it out. A lifestyle means I will eat things that aren't too healthy from time to time, but I will not beat myself up over it, and I will just continue to workout, and make the best choices I can for myself one meal at a time.

This to me is progress, and I am excited about what the future holds!
