You should not only track the weight that you lose
BUT you should track your progress in the gym
Sometimes the scale will not show how you look or feel!
So do not always place all of your concern on the amount of weight you do not lose a certain week
Some weeks you may lose more….and other weeks you may lose less (or none)
Keep working hard and sticking to your healthy eating and the results will still show.
What you eat has a HUGE impact on if you will reach your health and fitness goals
Your body is MADE in the kitchen.
Your body is SCULPTED in the gym
What you eat is supposed to fuel your body. Your body needs all the right things in order for it to grow, repair, and lose the weight that you do not want.
You can not eat like crap and try to workout to compensate for all the bad food you eat.
It just does not work that way!
Eat a clean and well-balanced meals during the day
Stay consistent with your healthy eating and fitness plans.
This will allow you to see the results you are working for!
10 Tips to Better Health and Fitness
Today we have Mr. Rod Devreese here to speak about some important key things to keep in mind for those who have recently started a new health and fitness routine. Starting a new routine takes a lot of work, dedication, and patience. You will learn what does and does not work best for YOUR body. Try NOT to compare yourself to those around you because everyone is different! What I personally do may not work for someone else or it may give better/worse results to someone else. It is about trial and error and figuring out YOUR body. The goal is to stay motivated, stay on track with your healthy eating habits, and stick to your regular workout routine. Doing these things will slowly start to show you the results you have been wanting!
Now, lets hear what Mr. Rod Devreese has to say!
If you want to be on your way to better health and fitness, you can follow these tips:
1. Don’t expect to improve your health overnight. It takes time to get used to
changes in your diet and lifestyle. If you are patient, you can succeed.
2. Be happy and the good hormones in your body will defeat cortisol. The latter is
also known as stress hormone. When you are happy, you will feel good. You can
watch funny videos or comedy movies with your friends or family, or you can just
talk about funny things.
3. Your monitor must be slightly above or just about the same level as your eyes.
a monitor that is lower than your eye level is sure to cause shoulder, neck, and
4. Monitor your heart rate especially during workout. A heart rate monitor can be
very useful. You need to use one to ensure that your heart rate is around 75% to
85%. The heart rate must not be too low or too high to get the best result from the
5. Boost your energy level by eating an energy bar or any other food that is rich in
sugar and fiber. Banana is also a great snack before doing any form of exercise.
6. Focus your attention on eating a balanced diet and getting a good exercise rather
than thinking about losing weight. The figures on the scale will not be able to help
7. Before doing any workout, you should do some stretching and other warm-up
exercises. This can prevent injuries. A lot of people tend to ignore this and later
on, they can have muscle injuries.
8. Some people think that aiming for better health and fitness means that a person
no longer needs carbs. This is a common misconception. In fact, you need carbs
to fuel the body and get the needed energy. You need to eat high-fiber foods
like fruits and vegetables, as well as protein sources. This will ensure that
carbohydrates are broken down with ease.
9. If you are the type of person who lacks motivation, you can try working out with a
friend or close member of the family. With a buddy, you will find ‘exercise’ time
cool and lots of fun rather than trying to achieve your fitness goals alone.
10. Routine activities are normal but if you want to be physically fit, you should learn
to be flexible. The freedom to do things as you see fit is a great way to motivate
yourself and to avoid boredom.
Aside from the tips above, you also need to look into diet food plans. If you truly want
to get in shape, there is a need to follow a diet regimen that will work for you. It can be
hard at first but once you get into the habit, you can live a healthier life and be fit.

“Stop competing with others and start competing with yourself!”
YOU are on your OWN journey!
STOP looking at someone and saying “I wish I looked like ____”
Everyone is unique, everyone is different, everyone does not look the same for a reason!
Enjoy your fitness journey. Learn to enjoy your uniqueness and what make you different from those around you. Every workout does not create the same results for everyone…the same diet will not create the same results for everyone. Yes you will get similar results but you will start to sculpt and create a different body type and you will start to strengthen different muscles.
Yes your progress may be slow so you will have to be patient.
Stay consistent with your workouts and eating healthy
Your hard work WILL start to show
Work hard…eat right…enjoy the results!
Consistency is KEY!
You HAVE to be consistent with your Diet…
You HAVE to be consistent with your fitness routine…
If you are not consistent you can not expect the results that you would like!
Only YOU can make the right changes to help you achieve your health and fitness goals!
Progress will take time…be patient and KEEP WORKING HARD!
To achieve your health and fitness goals
Working out is 1/3 of the equation to reaching your goals
Your Diet/food & Liquid consumption is 2/3 of the equation!
You can not eat fried, fat filled, unhealthy food and expect to lose weight!
You HAVE to fuel your body with the right nutrients in order for it to start burning those extra calories!
Eating right has to be consistent!
If not…do not expect to see results!
