The Two Key Ingredients Of A Great Body And It’s Not Just Diet And Exercise
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you have ever asked for or looked up information on losing weight, getting into shape, or anything along those lines, it’s almost a guarantee you heard or found the two most common answers in the world of fitness; diet and exercise.

Don’t get me wrong, diet and exercise are very important in order to transform your body and get into shape, but who doesn’t know that? You are taught at a very early age the benefits of diet and exercise and unless you have a severe memory problem, that information should be pretty set in stone for the rest of your life.

Sometimes eating healthy and working out just are not enough to take off those unwanted pounds. If you make a conscious decision to start working out and monitoring your diet, you have come up with about half of the formula for a great body.

The other half of the formula is something very simple, but something very few people actually do, and it can really set you apart from the crowd. Follow these two simple steps and you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish.

Working out and dieting with consistency and having set goals you strive to achieve can be the difference between an average body and a great body.

Consistency is so important to success. Be it in business, sports, or fitness, finding a consistent routine that works time and time again is extremely important in the growth and development of your business, your team, or your body.

Finding a healthy diet you can enjoy every day and a workout routine that will keep you coming back day after day is vital. Once you have found that, repeat, repeat, repeat. Consistently prepare those healthy meals and snacks and keep forcing yourself to go to the gym or do your at home workout.

I don’t care what workout routine or diet you find, but if you stay with it on a consistent basis and don’t give up after two weeks, you will see changes and you will feel better about yourself.

It might not be easy and it may take some time to see some results, but if you stick with it and keep moving forward, you will see changes and you will be on your way to building that sexy body you have always wanted.

Setting goals will only help you keep taking action and moving forward. Having a set achievement to strive for can be very motivating. The goal you set can be big or small, but you will be surprised at how good it feels to accomplish that goal.

Writing down your goals and placing them somewhere you can see them daily is a very powerful thing. You could make weight loss goals for a week, a month or a year or you could simply make consistency your goal. Make it your goal to work out four or five times a week for two months straight. That is something that is very achievable and will almost assuredly result in some lost inches and pounds.

I can’t stress enough how powerful it can be to write down your workout and diet goals and put them somewhere you can see them every day.  Keep them fresh in your mind and you will be amazed at how big of a difference that can make.

Staying consistent with diet and exercise and setting goals for your self will do wonders to your body and mind. Once you start to see changes in your body, be it toner arms or a thinner waist, I can almost guarantee you will set bigger goals, seek out new and healthy foods, and try harder and more intense workouts.

Gaining that mental edge with consistency and setting goals will definitely take your body to the next level. Just remember, nothing happens without taking action and only you can decide if it’s time to make a change.
