Something brought you here. You have your personal goals just like everyone else, but what makes yours unique? How do you distinguish your goals from the pack of also rans?
If you answered with something like, “I am like everyone else, I just want to build some muscle and lose a little fat,” then you haven’t genuinely evaluated your true goal. It’s one thing to say you want to reach said goals but that is too obscure, too abstract.
It’s easy to get confused and eventually frustrated with all of the “new” diet crazes out there preaching the latest research and studies proving their diet works and everybody else is just plain wrong. Not just wrong, but detrimental and near deadly!
You’ve seen them: Don’t drink milk, eat only in this window of time, fast for half of the day, fast for every fifth day, fast and then fast some more.
(Shaking my head) What ever happened to simple, sound eating advice that advocated a diet rich in healthy foods and balanced nutrients? I guess it’s not “sexy” enough to sell products.
I have a ton of new info for you right here. But first, an explanation.
Going off the heels of the last post (The Beginner Workout Checklist: A 12 Tip Guide) it’s now time to put those points to practice. Anyone can benefit from a solid beginner workout program comprising of the basic, fundamental principles, but your adherence to the plan and self-discipline will determine its rate of success.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed by all that goes into structuring an effective and successful workout program. Sure, you could just show up, lift this and raise that but would you actually be doing yourself any justice? Would you be utilizing your time wisely?
My last day of chemo
Motivation to stick to a diet and make it to the gym regularly can at times become a bit daunting. Mix in a few bad days stuck in traffic, bouts of bad eating and a few skipped workouts and you may quickly find yourself thrown from the motivation train.
Inevitably we will all stumble and fall off of our diets in one way or another. Getting back on track and moving forward is the real challenge especially in a world full of temptation and distraction.
Face your beliefs in fitness, diet and health and bust through the myths that our thirties dupe us into believing. A better, healthier physique is still a reality.
