People begin exercising for various reasons. Some do it because it’s doctor’s orders, or because they were talked into it by a friend, while others do it because they want a healthier lifestyle. No matter what the reason, it’s always worth the effort to start. There are however “impulses lurking” that make it easy to fall off of the wagon. One of those being, “I want a summer body”. This selection may lead to quitting because changes are not seen in a matter of days.
In today’s age we are used to seeing immediate results. Whether it comes from your microwave dinner or an instant scratch and win lottery ticket, we are used to seeing an outcome in 60 seconds or less. In some cases this thought process also applies to our bodies. Such thinking makes selling a DVD that boasts the ability to give you a 6-pack set of abs for only 5 minutes a day, as easy as pi.
We need to understand that it took years to create these unhealthy habits that our bodies are now used to, and it will take time to undo the damage and truly sculpt our bodies into what we want them to be. Don’t t get discouraged by the scale or the mirror, also give your exercise plan and diet more than a 48 hour window. It will work as long as you stick to it and give it 100%. Remember, the only person who can stop you from living a healthy lifestyle and obtaining a great body, is you.
