As a personal trainer, I see that too many aren’t mentally prepared to change their lifestyle. Once you start making excuses to stop training or sticking to your eating plans, it usually goes downhill from there. I know it’s not easy, that’s common! No one would be out of shape if it was that simple to just stop eating garbage and get in a gym. Decide that you are ready to look and feel better and stick with it. Aren’t you worth it?
All lbs are not created equal. Fat takes up more space, but muscle weighs more. I always recommend measuring yourself instead is relying so much on the scale to track your progress.
Food is good for you! You need it to fuel your workouts and keep you healthy. It’s the “food” you choose to eat that is your enemy. Two fists full of green beans is not the same as two fists full of potatoe chips. If you make healthy choices, you can eat MORE and still reach your fitness goals. Trade your greasy, fried foods for grilled or baked foods. Put down the 20 ounce of soda and drink water or green tea instead. Little swaps like this can make a huge impact in your life. You may even find yourself full longer because you’re giving your body food with real nutritional value! Give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised. You only get one body, feed it right!
