No nonsense advice on staying motivated

It can be challenging to always remain motivated. Motivation can wear off. Having motivation alone is not enough. It can get you started, but it can’t always keep you there. Instead, use your initial motivation as a tool to help you jump-start making something into a “habit.” When something becomes a habit, it becomes a part of you; you can’t help but stick to it. 

Want a better body? Get motivated to make a change right now. Then, practice this new habit for at least 21 days if you really want it to stick! (That seems to be the "magic" number.) I know you can stick to it for at least 21 days if you want it bad enough! 

No excuses, no 50% efforts. If you want to build a better body, you are going to have to go through a whole lot of sweat and body-burning-feeling. You will have to LIFT HEAVY. You will have to LIFT FREQUENTLY. You will have to EAT RIGHT and you will have to do all this for a long period of time (MINIMUM 3-12 months depending on your goals). Thereis no short cut 

You will have to give up those habits that haven’t served you well, including that habit of changing your mind every other day. Nothing beats a good plan, consistency and dedication. Nothing.

  1. More than motivation, you must have a set of goals on why you're embarking on a fitness journey. Having a set of plan will tide you over the times when you want to just give up. Besides, getting an accountability partner to help you is also needed to keep on track. Most of all, make sure you choose the right diet to jumpstart your weight loss journey. The military diet is an excellent low-carb diet that will help shed the extra pounds in no time. Read on reviews on how people were changed because of this diet:
