You’re determined to make a change and have recommitted to reaching your fitness goals. fortunately there are ways to maximize your success.
Keeping track of your fitness progress can help you to stay motivated and on track toward succeeding with your fitness goals.
It’s so important to have yourself as your own reference, it’s your life, your effort, your process and your own progress, don’t try to compare your process with the process of other people because there are a lot of different factors that will make harder or easy to others to be fit or fat, but hey ! if you follow the process of somebody just to get inspired and that is not affecting your emotions that will be ok.
Follow the realistic way to get results, because there is a bodybuilding movement going on out there and you see many athletes with amazing bodies, amazing results but maybe you have no the time to dedicate your life to fitness so go to work, set up a time for the gym, for the family, for entertainment and try to adapt the best tips of the fitness lifestyle to your life and try to be happy with your own process.
There is no way to lose 10 pounds in 10 days and continue going down and down, your metabolism will fight against that and you will recover some weight during the process. Please Be realistic because to lose 20 pounds will take you a minimum of 6 months, and during the process you will have moments where you will recover 5 pounds and also moments where you will lose 4 more pounds etc. but if after 6 months you are no recovering the weight that means that you are making a real and realistic progress.
3 tips to keep you motivated !!
1. Use the Scale
Weigh yourself at the same time of day and remember that weighing yourself once per week can give a more comprehensive picture over time of how you’re doing in terms of weight loss.
2. Keep an Exercise Log
Logging your workouts is another excellent way to track your progress from day to day and week to week. Make a note of the body parts worked as well the number of sets, reps and a few notes about how you felt that day. try to identify what types of workouts energize you and yield the best results? Are you allowing enough time for recovery between sets and workouts? Take care not to over-train, as this can be just as detrimental to progress as not training enough.
3. Take Photos
While how you look in the mirror can offer a glimpse of your progress, taking photos regularly can create a visual diary of your fitness evolution. Snap a mirror selfie of your bod once per week and display the photos side by side as you accumulate them to chart your progress. and share the best pictures on Instagram to get some love and hate.. that will keep you motivated !!
Please drink a lot of water !!! a minimum of 8 bottles of water every day … when you drink water you lose weight.
