The February goal I set for myself has come to an end. How did I do?
I challenged myself to complete Jessica Smith's 4 week HIIT for Beginners program. There were definitely days I wanted to give up. There were days I had to do the modified versions of the exercise. There were days I didn't even want to do any type of exercise at all. I didn't give up and I didn't give in. I pushed myself to do my very best and I completed the 4 week program. On the flip side, there were workouts I actually loved doing, which made working out for that day much more enjoyable. I am so very proud of myself for seeing it to the end.
Now what does that mean for my weight loss goals? Absolutely nothing. I lost 0 pounds this month. That alone would discourage a lot of people into giving up and quitting. But I choose to see the positive. While I didn't lose any weight, I didn't gain any either :)
I know very good and well why I didn't lose any weight. I allowed myself to enjoy all sorts of tasty and yummy desserts and snacks~ Mmmmm. It's all about baby steps. I am still eating a healthy breakfast and lunch. I will continue to exercise. If I do too much all at once, I get over whelmed, will quit and will lose all my progress. So I am choosing the slow and steady rate~ baby steps. I know I will get there.
If you chose to complete Jessica Smith's 4 week HIIT for beginners right along with me, how did you do? I would love to hear all about it :)
