We have all been there. Had a great workout and soon after we are ready to eat up the whole kitchen. I call this workout hunger, it is a common occurrence and a big reason that weight and fat loss can stall. When we get that hungry our survival instincts take over and instead of searching for the best thing we just search for anything that will fill us up (seriously, who searches for fruit when they are hangry LOL?). Letting the body get to that point can cause metabolisms to adjust downward, decrease muscle mass, increase recovery time, etc.
One of the biggest barriers to improving health and fitness is a lack of motivation. Most people just sit around waiting for motivation to strike like lightning. In some rare cases this might happen, but most of the time we will be left waiting and wondering when we will get our lives together. Often motivation only comes from seeing results. Once we see results, we are then enticed to continue the actions that got those results in the first place. So how do we see results in the first place? One option would be to hire a Personal Trainer.
Starting something new can be overwhelming no matter what it is. A new hobby, sport, job, or even relationship can create a sense of uneasiness in everyone. When you think about it, starting a new workout routine has aspects of all those things! Exercise can be fun, therefore it can be a hobby. Exercise is obviously athletic, therefore could be classified as a sport in some cases. Exercise in some form is vital to your health and well being and should be treated with as much dedication as a new job. And exercise strengthens your relationship with your body and mind. Because of all these aspects of a workout routine, walking into the gym for the first time can be daunting!
