So you started your journey. You can do this strictly with your diet or you can incorporate working out into this journey! I suggest both. Let’s say you choose to hit the gym. Now you are there…the real struggle begins. It may be out of your comfort zone or intimidating. Do not zone out. This journey is for you. You have to want this. You have to want it more than your afraid of it. Get on a machine push the green quick start button and set a short term goal! Challenge yourself to get to that short term goal and surpass it! Crushing your goals will become the only thing on your mind instead of the laundry you have to do or the errands you have to run. Doing this will keep you accountable and motivated. You will be able to say you did it and hopefully want more!
I don’t believe in a cheat day but if that is how your journey is set up I suggest you work out on that cheat day because if you get on the scale or out your pants on the next day and they are tight….was the cheat day worth it? We all know how hard it is to loose a pound or two so that crap you ate on your cheat day I am guessing wasn’t worth it. If you balance your diet and exercise plus do not deprive yourself you won’t feel the need to go over board on one single day.
