1. Keep new goals every 3-4 months. Whether it’s getting leaner, more muscle or just physically fit for a marathon.
2. Find clothes you like to wear. Find a nice pair of tight ripped jeans you want to fit into. Or a shirt to show off your arms. Or a dress with a unique cut to it.
3. Look at yourself in the mirror every-week a evaluate yourself.
Your body fat percentage is primarily determined by your diet (eating habits). Doing cardio does burn fat, but if you eat too much your body will simply replace the fat loss with the excess calories you’re giving it.
Weightlifting actually burns about the same amount of calories per hour as low intensity cardio, but it also burns more calories after the workout called the “after burn effect”. The muscle you build as a result also helps keep you lean because it increases the total amount of calories that your body burns while at rest.

I hear this question time to time, is it best to workout in the mornings, evening, or late night? My answer is all of the above, but most importantly is what fits best with your body. If you’re a morning person, you have alot of energy in the mornings, then you will want to workout in the mornings. If you’re anything like me, then mornings wont be your time it would be midday or evenings. Some people have to work all day and the best time for them might be late night. For others, if they workout late nights, then it’s hard for them to get to sleep so midday or evening might be best. So try all times of the day and see what works best for you, then stick with it 5 days a week! You got this!
Remember working out is not a punishment…it’s a PRIVILEGE! We are blessed to have the opportunity everyday to workout, so never take it for granted! Go get it!
