Week 2 Update
It is week 2 of my 16 weeks challenge. Time flies and I only have 14 weeks left to achieve my goal.
I have missed one day of work out (interval training) this week. However, I know these types of things are bound to happen. I am not going to take it too hard and I will just keep moving forward. It is the same for achieving any goals of yours. Whenever you missed your workout or a task that you need to do to reach your goals, you don’t stop and immerse yourself in feeling guilty.
This can only make you feel worse and cause you to feel bad about yourself. Do not even strive for perfection in the first place is my advice to help you keep moving on.
I know that I will miss some of my workouts in the upcoming 16 weeks. I’m going to do my best to ensure that I follow through everyday even if it means that I need to work out at 6 am in the morning or 12 in the midnight. However, even if I missed one of my workouts, I will not take it too hard and keep on progressing with my challenge.
It is going to take 16 weeks for me to achieve my desired body. The number of days dedicated to achieve my desired body may seem long and that alone can deter many to start their own challenge. However, do remember that even if you do not proceed on to take action, time is going to past anyway.
If you focus on how long it takes to complete the challenge, it will be hard for you to complete it. However, focusing on what you are going to do every day will make life much easier for you.
Yard by yard it may be hard. Inch by inch, anything is a cinch.
Fitness Tip Of The Week: What You Need To Look Out For In Your Diet
It is possible for you to work out like crazy yet you can’t see much results. Even though you are getting ripped, it is impossible for you to see the results when you have layer of fats above your well toned muscles.
Working out is not enough for you to achieve that dream body of yours. You need to modify your diet to ensure that your body turns into a fat burning furnace.
The first thing you need to do is to stop eating junk food so regularly. Notice that I didn’t say stop eating junk food forever? It is hard for some to discard the food that they love. It is ok to eat them, really. I still plan to eat chocolates during my 16 weeks challenge, however it is recommended that you only take them during your cheat meal for the week.
You are supposed to eat clean food like vegetables, meat and grains during the normal days but you are allowed to have one cheat meal per week. This means that you can eat everything that you crave during your cheat meal day. This will help you to get through the 16 weeks much more easily as you still get to eat your favorite food at least once a week.
Another thing you need to take note of is you need to start eating more regularly. The 3 big meals daily plan is the norm for most of us. However, if you really want to shed the extra pounds off your waist, you need to eat more regularly in smaller portions (5 to 6 meals a day).
This can aid digestion and ensure that you keep your body’s metabolism rate high. You will burn more fats and calories when your metabolism rate is high.
Example Of My Daily Meal
- 7 am – Oatmeal with a spoon of honey and one orange.
- 10 am – Chicken breast with a big apple.
- 12.30 pm – Rice with seafood. (This meal differs daily for me, as I usually eat out for my lunch break at work.)
- 3 pm – Meal replacement shake (Chocolate flavor) by EAS.
- 6 pm – Cabbage with omelette. (This meal differs daily)
Always plan your meal so that most of the times you will be eating clean food that helps you burn fats instead of adding on fats.
This will be all for today and stay tune for the next update next week. Remember to subscribe to my blog to ensure that you receive your updates weekly.
