Change takes time:
1. Workout at least 3 times per week. Don’t just focus on cardio, strength training burns more calories than hours on the treadmill.
Lifting weights or doing bodyweight exercises has an afterburn effect which means that even when you’re not exercising, your body still burns calories.
The best strength exercises are compound moves — meaning numerous joints and muscles are engaged in each move.
2. Eat healthily. Remove fast and unhealthy foods from your daily menu, such as processed/packaged foods, candies, sweets, soda, sugar, sugary juices, unhealthy fats, refined grains, foods with added sugar, etc).
Prepare your own meals, because that way you know exactly which ingredients and how much of each you put into your food. Don’t binge and don’t starve.
3. Stop snacking between meals. One way to do that is to eat high-protein foods. They will help you feel full longer because protein takes more time to digest.
Or try to consume foods that are high in fiber, such as grapefruit, oatmeal, or popcorn. Take your time to chew your food.
4. Take one step at a time. It doesn’t matter how slow you go, how many times you fail or stumble.
What matters is that you don’t stop and always move forward.
Change takes time. Focus on your healthy habits and strive to improve 1 percent each day.
You can simply put in another rep or one more glass of water rather than soda.
Don’t Give Up On Yourself
Don’t give up on yourself just because you can’t do 30 push-ups, lift as much as you would like, or run as long as you would like.
Remember that every squat, every push-up, every jumping jack, and every mile counts.
Do YOUR best, work hard and you will improve over time!
Challenge yourself each day just a little bit more. It all adds up to big changes.
Never Give Up On Yourself
I accept my body right now. I know what no amount of negative thinking will change my body.
Feelings of hate, loathing, and rejection will not change my body into the ideal I’ve created in my mind.
Only love, positive thinking, positive choices, and time can help me to evolve to what the divine intended my body to be –> Full of health and beauty!” – Ajima Kali
“Never ever give up on your weight loss goals!
Progress may be slow sometimes – but as long as you keep going you will see that green trend line on your weight log slant down.
This will tell you that you’re doing fine and on the right track.”
Give The Best You Have Got
Pain is temporary, quitting is forever.
“Don’t just go on a diet or exercise until you lose a certain amount of weight. Change your habits forever.
Replace bad habits with good habits. Get motivated and then work until it becomes second nature.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
~ Marsha Tieken Christensen
Start the week out right! Work hard and commit to giving the best you have got.
Giving up is not an option
At some point in the various journeys, we embark on in our lives, we get to a part where we feel like giving up.
Sometimes we give up before we even start and other times we give up just before we are about to make that huge break-through that we have been putting so much effort in to achieve.”
Start Today and be a Champion! What you want is wanting you to.
Never Give Up
Never give up. Everyone fails at some time or other in their lives.
Don’t quit because a month from now you’ll be so much closer to your goal than you’re now.
