Just by having positive thoughts, you can have a better chance at getting that physique you want. More than likely, if you keep your mind positive and follow up with good diet and workouts, you will achieve your physique goals.
Why is this so? Because, simply by thinking positive you are avoiding body dismorphia. I’m not saying you should stop eating right and exercising, but a lot of people struggle with beating themselves up when the scale doesn’t say what they want it to or they think in their minds that they look chubbier one day.
The truth is something like that could be caused by water retention or gained muscle. Simply stick to your diet and exercise, and don’t stress. Stay positive! There’s no better way to be.
After all, you want to enjoy every step of the way towards your end results. Whether it be bigger arms, six pack abs, or great conditioning you just need to keep your diet and exercise in check and also remember to love yourself every step of the way.
If you can set for yourself at least one goal each month and succeed at that goal, then you are taking baby steps that will add up to giant achievements in the future. Take the time to track your results, be consistent in your training, have a plan, and do your very best while not getting discouraged if you fall of the wagon now and then. You can, and will succeed. Get it done. Beat your old records and make improvements every month.
Here is my body fat chart. I update it every sixth day of the month. Here are my results. You can do the same, maybe better. Again, I’ll say it this way, believe you can do something and do it. Get it done 😉
Ever right down the dates for certain activities in your fitness adventure? It isn’t a bad idea. You could set a time of week to do high weight, low rep and other times for low weight, high rep. You could set a day each month for maxing out on all of your exercises.
I set specific dates for my goals. Every 5th of the month is picture day to see my results and the 6th is weigh-in/body fat % day.
The goals should help you stay focused, consistent, and punctual. If you like this blog, do me a small favor and subscribe for free updates.
