Progress.

Sometimes working out can be boring and very time consuming. It’s hard to find time to go to the gym and work out, if you live busy life’s. Plus, if you don’t like working out in front of people, this can discourage you even worse. Where is the motivation?
Recently, I have realized I could give away with twenty pounds of my weight, so I went on the internet and searched workouts and diet plans.
Being a very picky person, I wasn’t satisfied with the results I was getting online. This motivated me to come up with my own plans. Sure I am not a health or dietitian graduate, but I do know my limits, what I like to eat, and what I am comfortable doing.
     We aren’t supposed to hate working out, because to stay healthy, working out has to be a part of our weekly routine.
After researching, I had finally come up with a way for me to possibly lose weight on my own terms and with a plan I was comfortable with.
First, my plan started with clean eating. No more junk food; especially food with no nutritional value. I stocked my fridge with veggies and protein. Granola had become my favorite snack, along with my favorite drink, water.
Second, I set weight goals for myself. I started a diet and workout journal to document and keep track of my progress.
Lastly, I started working out every other day for one hour.
Only doing this since the beginning of the year, I have had little time to see progress in the mirror, but I have seen the number on my scale go down slightly at a time.
It’s so easy for us to get discouraged, but I find when we can see our progress documented, we are motivated to keep moving forward. Hopefully for some of you, this motivates you to find a plan that suits you. One that you are comfortable and happy with. Please know that people are rooting for you in your progress. Xx.
