Motivating progress this week; Mini-goals.

After just 3 days of clean eating and resuming my daily workouts, I look and feel 100% better than I did on Sunday. My energy levels are noticeably higher, I feel mentally focused, my muscles look fuller, the puffiness from all the water I was retaining in my face and mid-section is gone and I’m in a great mood. I’ve been eating a caloric deficit and 100% clean, all-natural foods, so I’ve probably already lost a bit of fat along with the water, too. On Monday morning my scale weight was 199.6 pounds, and this morning it’s 196.2 pounds. I’ll take tape and body fat measurements on Sunday or Monday.

Just seeing a little progress can be extremely motivating. If you are having trouble sticking with your workouts and diet, force yourself to be 100% strict for just a week. If your diet and training are dialed-in, you will definitely see tangible results in a very short amount of time. Those results should help reinforce that hard work and dedication equals progress. Progress is a nice reward for all your hard work, but it also has the added benefit of providing momentum. That momentum makes it easier to keep moving forward. Getting started really is the hardest part, so just grit your teeth and make it happen. It does get easier!

No weight training scheduled for me today – just 18 minutes of HIIT cardio this afternoon, which I’m very much looking forward to. I love HIIT cardio and getting my heart pumping hard. My goal today is to keep my RPMs higher than I did on Tuesday during my 100% effort intervals. No matter what I’m doing (cardio, strength training) I always try to improve a little each and every time.

It’s almost 9:00 AM, so I’d better wrap this up. Train hard!
