When we get to a certain point in our workouts, we should be seeing results. I’ve talked to so many women and they tell me that they will be doing a workout, and seeing results, then all of a sudden, the scale doesn’t move, their clothes do not get looser, and they feel they are ready to give up! One word: DON’T!
Are you telling me after all the hard work you have put in day after day, you are just going to give up? Your stronger than that! We all hit plateaus! There are so many people that start these workouts and hit a stop spot to where they haven’t moved off the scale, or changed in weight. That is normal. You need to evaluate what you are doing.
Are you giving your all in your workouts? I am a bit of an over achiever, so if I feel I’m not doing enough, I turn it up a notch. I have a son who pushes me, and I’ll tell you, I love it. I am always increasing my weight on my dumbells to challenge myself. I have to admit, I love working out with my son on some days.
How is your diet? Are you eating enough protein? It’s so important to take a post workout protein shakes! Are you getting enough sleep? It’s so important to get those zzz’s every night so you your body is rejuvenated and has time to rest.
These are all important things that go hand in hand in helping you are see results. Everyone’s body is different, but I can tell you, if you are keeping track of the things above, and making changes accordingly, you will get the best of your workouts and see results. You will also feel at the top of your game. If you feel you aren’t, keep a journal of your meals and workouts, and you will see where you are lacking and where you need to improve!
