It is every young man or woman’s dream to get that perfect body, the abs or the curves. Well, it is equally difficult to have a body like that. Vigorous exercises, rough body training, harsh dieting, and extensive working out in the gym can only help you to achieve that perfect hourglass figure. So the next time someone tells you that he or she is naturally fit without any efforts, probably they are lying. A lot of hard work, patience, and dedication goes in to have a stunning body. The better body you have, the better you look, and the more confident you feel. This is what most people believe in.
But certain individuals work equally hard, or maybe they think they do, they fail to achieve their only goal of getting a fit body. It is annoying when you waste so much time slogging hard in the gym, but you see no results. It gets disappointing after some time, and you might even lose hope as you would start believing that nothing is changing though you are trying to everything in the books. Well, before plunging into such a vague conclusion, hold on, breathe, and think about it. There could be some reasons that are stopping you from achieving your goal which maybe you are not aware of.
What could the reasons be?
Sometimes it so happens that you do a lot of exercises, but you do not lose weight. It could be because maybe you are not doing the right exercises. Everybody has a different body type and different exercises for different people. For example, if you have excessive upper body weight and you keep on doing lower body exercises, how are you going to lose that excess fat on your upper body?
According to you, you might be working out correctly, but maybe it is not as sufficient as it should be. Sometimes your body needs more, and you fail to understand that. You might be working two or three times a week, but according to your body type, you need to put more efforts in body training. So it is very important to know how much training your body requires.
Diet & Exercise
Diet and exercise go hand in hand for the weight loss process. You might be doing perfect exercises and in a correct manner but your diet is still the same, or you are eating too much junk food, sugar, or things that you should not be eating. Switch on to a healthy diet plan as soon as possible because without the proper diet, no matter how much you exercise, your body will not show your desired results.
Sleep deprivation could also be one of the reasons. You need to get those sufficient hours of sleep in a day so that it rejuvenates your body and improves your mental and physical health. It is also a great stress buster. But not getting enough sleep could hamper your health and eventually impede your target of achieving your goal.
You show that you are happy but from within you are too nervous and tensed about everything. Stay stress-free and relaxed. Do not over think things you can’t control and do not trouble yourself for small petty things. After all, a stress-free mind could work for getting a fit body.
What could you do about it?
First of all, stop thinking too much, enjoy your life and have fun with your family and friends. Go to the gym and hire an experienced trainer who could help you and guide you with the correct exercises your body needs. Have a proper diet chart planned by the trainer which you need to follow strictly and efficiently. Always keep your goals straight and be firm and determined in what you do. The more determined you are, the easier it will be for you to follow your dream.
Eat healthy throughout the process and even after. Remember this is not a one-time diet but a lifestyle change; this will keep the pounds off. Set a proper schedule as to when to go to the gym, when should your morning walk take place, etc. This will help you to stay on the right track. Engage yourself in other physical activities too like jogging or playing a sport which could go hand in hand with the exercising. Keep your mind clear and confident and learn to balance your fitness life, professional life, and personal life. Do not overdo anything just for the sake of getting good results immediately. Train and work out as per the guidance of your trainer and eat as per the suggestions of your dietician.
Lastly, stay optimistic and hopeful. Do not get disheartened if you do not achieve the result rapidly because as I said everybody has a different body and while some may produce the results immediately, for some it could take a while. You have to be very patient, calm, and confident throughout the process and do not lose hope; hard work pays off overtime. Have faith in your sincerity and dedication, and most importantly in yourself.
