The next step to getting fit is having consistency, accountability, and maintainability. We want to be consistent with our workouts and our food. We want to have some sort of accountability to stick with this new lifestyle so we can maintain it long term. We want to make sure that all of the changes we have made are something we enjoy so we can stick to it.
We want to find a way to make working out fun and something that we look forward to doing each day. We want to make sure we’re doing different workouts every day, not just because of the eventual plateau if you do, but also because you don’t want to neglect certain muscle groups. Targeting all of your muscle groups will lead to building more total muscle and that will lead to more calories being burned and a faster metabolism.
Find a system that works for you to get to the gym consistently. Set goals for yourself. Find a meal plan that you can stick to. It takes 21 days to make something a habit. Stick it out. Keep in mind that it will take 4 weeks for you to notice a change, 8 weeks for your closest friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world. 90 days is totally manageable when you take it one day at a time. Keep a journal to track your workouts, your food, your moods, your struggles, and your accomplishments – big and small. It will be worth it every day – stick it out and see those changes.
