“Athletes eat and train. They don’t diet and exercise”

Category : Uncategorized

2017-05-31 20.11.35I read this phrase this week and it called my attention. It actually bothered me a little bit.

As I mentioned in my post last week, I never really believed in diets. I always thought that if you eat healthy during the week, you can have a treat on the weekends… Oh well, when I read that phrase, I realised I have changed my mind… I now do believe in diets.

I can’t ignore the results…

This is all very interesting and new to me. Since I started doing this new exercise program and following a strict diet, a lot of things have changed in my mind and in my body. This is week #6 on this program and I am honestly very happy with my results. I really thought that sticking to a diet would be very difficult for me but as I also said last week, it hasn’t been a problem at all.

The cake temptation…

Last Saturday, I went to my friend’s birthday party, and there it was – the CAKE! I love cake!

The cake kept staring at me but I’m happy to say I kept strong and did NOT have it!. J

This is something I thought I would not be able to do: talk myself out of eating a piece of cake… But actually when I thought about the results I am having, the craving for a piece of that cake went away in a blink.

I also told myself (which helped a lot) that when I got the body I wanted I would be able to enjoy a piece of cake (every so often), just like I was doing before.

It’s about making a decision and taking the first step…If you have a healthy weight, are happy with your body and you exercise to keep your fitness, you don’t need to change your diet. However, if you want to lose weight or shed fat and put on some serius muscles, you have to exercise (harder) and you will need to follow a diet.

I am not an athlete and don’t plan to become one, I’m just a regular person who loves exercising and is ready to take the next step towards a leaner and stronger version of myself.

If you are a regular person like me and you are thinking about commencing an exercise program, or if you want to start going to the gym, or if you want to start a new diet, it is totally worth it giving a go, just take the first step. Once you start seeing results, something will change in your mind and give you strength to keep going. I assure you! You just need to take the first step – you just need to start!

“Believe in yourself, be focused and strong minded! You are capable of doing incredible things.”

Keep healthy and happy.
