Don’t look back; you may never see how far you have come…
Even the strong falter…
Blah, blah, blah!
What happens when you are on your 500th step, and your feet are tired and aching?
Dieting is one of the hardest things about getting in shape. You can get acclimated to frequent weightlifting and bouts of cardio.
You can get used to the yells of the Group X Instructor as (s)he bellows instructions and new exercises.
You may even start to enjoy the clanging of weights and murmured discussions in the weight room over the loudspeakers.
Dieting is a completely different animal, though. Getting acclimated to the diet is part of the problem!
What happens when you have been on the same diet for 6-8 weeks, and the results are still coming?
Obviously, there is no need to change the diet if it is still “working”…
What do you do when you are looking great, feeling energetic, BUT you are absolutely TIRED of your diet?
Even if the food is interchangeable, you still need to follow the numbers. You need to measure your protein in ounces, measure your carbohydrates in cups, and your fats in tablespoons or teaspoons.
The process of dieting: prepping meals in advance, mixing protein shakes to store in your cooler or lunch pack, timing your meals consistently, and worst of all, EATING, is very exhaustive, but it is necessary!
The only thing that can keep your head on straight is the results you achieve by adhering to the plan.
Watching your body transform before your eyes has a way of disciplining you.
You previously weighed 217lbs. at 32% body fat. Now, you weigh 195lbs. at 27% body fat. What got you there? DIET!
Forget about how long you have been dieting without a cheat day, or even a cheat meal! Worry about results!
Don’t eat a chicken and rice meal… Eat a net loss of 2lbs. of straight body fat!
Don’t eat 3 whole eggs with 2 slices of Ezekiel toast… Eat 1-2lbs. of lean body mass and an increased metabolic rate!
Eat for a purpose! Eat for a change! STICK TO YOUR DIET!
