Doing a couple of exercises without a plan or schedule won’t produce good results. For the best results, you should design a detailed workout plan.
2. You are on a diet without exercising.
You must combine a good diet with exercise. A diet alone may help you lose weight, but eventually you could gain it back. Exercise helps tone your muscles and raises your metabolism rate. By raising your metabolism, you can increase your weight loss. Exercising along with a diet plan is the best way to achieve and maintain a healthy body.
3. You are exercising without a balanced diet.
You must eat a balanced diet to achieve and maintain the results you desire. Working out without dieting properly will only lead to frustration, mainly because of lack of results. Dieting combined with exercise is a must for the full body transformation process.
4. You are not eating enough calories.
Under-eating is one of the obstacles in the fight to lose weight. Many believe if you decrease your calories you will lose weight. Your body requires a minimum amount of calories to function properly. If you don’t provide your body with that amount you will not see results. Even the smallest person should consume at least 1,200-calories a day. Your calorie intake is determined based upon your weight and activity level. To lose weight you have to eat balanced meals with enough calories.
5. You never change your routine.
You must change your routine often to help you improve. For example: If you are exercising on the elliptical machine everyday at the same speed, eventually you will reach a peak and stop progressing. You must perform a variety of cardiovascular and weightlifting exercises. When the results slow down or stop, switch your routine to give your body another challenge. If your body is not stimulated by change, it will stay the same.
6. You are a complainer.
Most people suffer from some form of pain and discomfort at times. Try not to use excuses simply to avoid using a machine or doing an exercise. If you minimize the whining, you will see better results.
7. You are arrogant.
Some individuals are too arrogant to improve. If you desire excellent results, you must be able to take constructive criticism and move forward. Everyone has something that can be improved about their body. Remember, you are only hurting yourself if you don’t diet and exercise, not the professional trying to assist you. IT’S YOUR BODY!!
8. Making excuses about time and money.
The top two excuses for slacking on health and fitness are “not enough time” and “not enough money.” And they are exactly that: Excuses. Women spend crazy amounts of money on hair, make-up, nails and clothes, none of which will produce a lifelong change or improvement in your health. It’s time to toss the excuses, ladies. You can always find the time and the money for the things that we really want. If you arrange your schedule correctly you can find one hour to workout. Or you could adjust your budget to spend your hard earned money on something very important- Your Health! Can you put a price tag on your health? It is easier to make an excuse than it is to just workout, or to spend your money on junk, instead of health foods.
If you are serious about improving your body, analyze this list and make attitude adjustments if needed. Losing weight and toning muscles it’s not easy, but the results could change your life. You must use effort to get results.
