Trying to change your body is no easy task and it isn't just a simple change either, there are a number of things to make sure you are doing correctly and consistently. That for me is the biggest misconception of getting results, the fact that people aren't consistent in their approach of staying in shape. In order to stay consistent however you must be willing to do a few things that will get you to the finish line, these are as follows....
Change Your Diet
What you eat is so important when it comes to achieving your goals and being able to notice a significant change within yourself. Feeding on healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, wholesome foods that fill you up and give you long lasting energy is much better than processed rubbish! More importantly than just eating the right foods is making sure you have enough of the right stuff for your body type. This means eating enough protein, carbohydrates and fats which will ensure your body operates properly!
Change Your Training
Doing the same training over and over isn't necessarily going to prevent you from achieving your results, but in an indirect way it will prevent it from being fun which is obviously something you don't want to happen. So mix up your training and don't be afraid to trial new methods to see what works best for you. Try different rep ranges, sets and exercises that you wouldn't normally do and most of all make sure there is some form of overload which forces the muscles to adapt.
Get Some Inspiration
Their has to be an internal fire within you that spurs you on when you least feel like doing what it is you want to do. Ask anyone that has achieved their goal, it doesn't come easy but you must have something inside of you that switches you from not doing something to getting it done.
Finally and the most important of all is to stay motivated and follow through with what you have set out to do. All too many times people will set out on a goal and fall short of it because they didn't continue to pursue their dreams. Staying motivated isn't just about seeing results because you aren't always going to see them. You aren't always going to notice a change in your physique and so there will be times when you feel like giving up.
Following the above pointers will certainly help you through the tough times chasing your goals will bring. It is no easy task but I ASSURE you if you do the above and stick with it, you will get there and make it through. What are you waiting for... start right now!!
