5 Key Tips to start a healthy transformation:
• Write down your goals. Short and long term for weight loss (create a journal) Keeping a detailed journal will help you keep track of workouts, meals and also hold yourself accountable
• This is one of the most important steps. In order to change your body, you must 1st change the mind. Start with positive affirmations daily i.e (stroke your own ego)! Tell yourself you can do it and nothing can stop you.
• By far the most valuable tip I have for you. Nutrition is absolutely key to having a healthy transformation. Meal prepping and meal planning based on your calorie intake is vital to your transformation. As the saying goes “Eat for the body you want, not the body you have”.
• With a new gym opening everyday this tip should be an easy one. It’s simple, get in a gym and get active! 30 minutes a day on the treadmill is a good way to get the blood pumping and start up your metabolism. You also want to add at minimum 3days a week of strength training i.e (lift weights). Accompanied by the nutrition you’re definitely on your way to transforming your body the healthy way.
• Now that you’re getting started, here is the hard part. Waiting to see results. You have to adjust your mind that you are looking for the “bigger picture” and not instant gratification. The vast majority of people quit because of this very reason. Trust me if you stay consistent and disciplined with your nutrition, I promise you it will work. Like the saying goes “Rome wasn’t built overnight” and neither will your body!!! Stay focused , stay consistent and trust the process! Anything worth having will never come easy.
