What To Expect When You Get Started On Your Fitness Journey
Whenever you are about to start a new fitness plan you tend to be very excited at the beginning. You have high hopes of what you’ll look like at the end of the plan. Now you are motivated and inspired to just go all out and work hard. The problem however is that the process is completely different in real life than it is on paper.
There are a whole lot of things that can go wrong, there are unexpected things that can happen and things may not always go as planned.
In this article I want to explain EXACTLY what to expect when you enroll in a fitness plan to change your body and ultimately your health. Because after you get started, different things will happen at different stages of your journey. For example, after the first week, the second week, a month later and beyond.
However, when you arm yourself with the right information, you can be prepared so that whatever happens may not be a surprise to you and you can still accomplish your goals.
What Happens After You Start Dieting And Exercising?
The first week can be the easiest or the hardest depending on why you got started in the first place. Let me explain.
If you got started because you truly desire to change your body and lifestyle without being forced into this new journey then more than likely, you’ll have an upbeat spirit and will enjoy the new change. On the other hand, if you were forced to start working out maybe because of health issues or just being bullied for your weight then this is going to seem like the hardest thing in your life.
The main reason for this is because you’ll lack the motivation and the drive to push through. You’ll have to give up some of your favorite meals and since it wasn’t your desire to start in the first place, this will feel horrible to you.
The other thing that you’ll notice is that you’ll lose the most weight in the first week of your weight loss journey. Depending on how overweight you are, you could lose up t 10lbs in your first week. Bare in mind that this will not all be fat but a lot of water weight as well since you just subject your body to something it wasn’t doing before.
After that, you’ll pretty much have a constant weight loss on a weekly basis. It doesn’t matter if you are taking a weight loss supplement like Garcinia Cambogia, you can expect to lose anywhere from 2-3 pounds per week after your first week.
After One Month And Beyond….
If you have been consistent with your diet and exercise, then after one month you should have lost a considerable amount of weight. But not only that, you should be a lot fitter than when you just started. The sad thing however is that your hunger pangs will be kicking in and so you have to be really determined and motivated to stay the course.
The best thing to do will be to give yourself a cheat meal (NOT DAY)once per week so that you can indulge a little without falling off the plan completely.
Starting a new diet and exercise program can be fun but it also has its downsides. It all starts with the reason you enrolled in such a plan in the first place. If you have the right mindset, things will be a lot easier for you. Also, after a few weeks its inevitable to hunger for certain foods that you have been restricted to. In order to combat this, give yourself a cheat meal weekly so that you don’t fall off your plan completely.
