Boosting metabolism can seriously affect weight loss results. Imagine waking up 12-weeks from now, looking in the mirror and actually being amazed about what you see! You absolutely do have the ability to be in an entirely different body. The first step is creating the right mindset for your transformation journey.
Are You Ready For Change?
Making a commitment to follow a metabolism makeover guarantees the surest path to your ultimate fitness goals. However, you need to be ready for change. Yes, you’ll begin to see and feel dramatic changes within your body, but there are other changes you’ll experience. Expect psychological and physiological changes. Expect a decreased body fat percentage, increased lean muscle mass, increased metabolism, increased sense of well-being, an abundance of energy, better cholesterol levels, decreased risk of heart disease, and the most important change of all… increased self-confidence.
These types of change requires effort and dedication. You need to be ready to embark on the journey. Otherwise, you won’t be setting yourself up for success.
Fitness As a Lifestyle
Obesity rates are higher than ever. The Center for Disease Control predicts that 42% of Americans will be obese by 2030. Diabetes rates have soared in the last two decades. According to the American Diabetes Association, 8.3% of the US population has diabetes. They also estimate that 79 million people are pre-diabetic.
If you feel it is selfish to take an hour a day, four days a week for yourself to exercise, you shouldn’t. Remember, your family, children, spouse, and friends all need you, but more importantly they need you healthy! Taking time for proper nutrition and exercise is not selfish — it’s selfless because you are working to maintain your body so it can perform well and remain healthy.
When you start living a fit lifestyle you will notice that your life will improve dramatically on many levels. It will improve socially, physically, and mentally. Your confidence will go up. You will live longer. You will look in the mirror and be proud of the face that is staring back at you. You’ll know you are doing all you can to live a healthy life, and that is a wonderful feeling.
The cost of that feeling? Make time. You make time for the things that are most important. So… no excuses. Fitness needs to be at the top of your priorities.
