Not all bodies are created equivalent (metabolism wise)
First of all, you need to understand that every body is unique with its own fat burning speed. All of us probably have that one friend who just started eating well and working out, and are already down a size… Good for them, but a really BAD reference point for you! Not every body works this way and actually very few of them do. What is more, you can’t eat all sorts of junk food for five decades and expect to revert the process in 5 days,it is just not how it works. Simple… the only fitness competition you have is yourself! That gorgeous woman in the gym with the Brazilian booty or that huge man with the six pack might well have been around for many, many years, so forget about them and concentrate on the most important man in the world – yourself!
Progress is made in a few weeks. You are just looking at the wrong places
So if you’ve started working out two weeks ago and feel like you have not made any progress, I am here to tell you; you absolutely have, you just don’t know it YET! Obviously the visibility of the results is the most powerful motivation, but definitely not the first to come. So here is a couple of tips on other ways to monitor progress and stay motivated: Were you aware that our weight actually changes throughout the day depending on your water and food intake? Yes, you can not expect to drink two litres of water or consume a enormous bowl of veggies and not see it reflected on the scales. So if you do love your scales, weigh yourself afterward.
This is probably the best way to go about your progress. As we mentioned not all bodies will show visible results as fast as we wish, nevertheless, they’re in fact changing under the surface. Every single workout gets one step closer to your goal and you need to begin capturing that. My very basic FIT evaluation logger for you to easily capture your results and compare every two weeks is available below! I promise you’d be amazed by how much progress you actually make!
When I was just starting out this seriously brought me down. Even in the event that you do have visible benefits, when you look at yourself each day you wouldn’t notice them. The wiser thing to do is take pictures once a month and compare on a month-to-month basis, not daily.If you are too eager, however, you can always do a fit test rather than remember, every rep counts as progress!
