1. Meet Your Fat Loss Jars
Simply move over a pebble from one jar to the other each time you lose a pound/kilogram.
2. Create Your Own Workouts
I like this idea and it’s great for variety. Reminds me of something I used to do when I ran group training sessions.
Write down a bunch of exercises with a set time or amount of repetitions. Chuck them in a jar and then when you come to do a workout pull out as many as you like and get to burning some jelly from the belly.
3. Drink More Water
I don’t drink enough water and you probably don’t either.
Here’s a cool trick and that you can do with any water bottle….
4. Write A Reminder
Why the hell did you start?! :)
Yes, you want to lose weight but WHY?
What does it mean to you?
Write as many reasons as you can and make them emotional for extra umph!
5. Motivation Wall
Speaking of reminders here’s a great tool to help you stay focused.
Cut out workouts, quotes or images you’ve seen in magazines and pop them on the wall.
Keep your stats and your goals on the board also.
6. Drop A Dress Size
You can either go out and buy 3-4 new pieces of clothing or use some old clothing items that you used to fit into :(
Each item should be a smaller dress size than the last with the goal of getting into that item of clothing before the deadline.
7. Take Some Measurements
When it comes to losing lard the scale doesn’t always give you the full story, especially if you’ve got less than 10 pounds to lose.
The photo below demonstrates this perfectly.
If this women would have relied overly on the scales during her transformation the chances are she would have been down in the dumps having not lost any weight and given up.
Don’t make this mistake.
Yes, losing weight is a good indicator of losing fat, but you’ve also got to take note of your measurements too.
8. Keep A Journal
One of the reasons that many people don’t lose the fattimus from their assimus is because they eat more than they think they do.
Keep on track by writing a journal.
You can also write recipes, quotes, how you feel, what workouts you’ve done, etc.
9. Post Its
To help you stay focused you need constant reminders.
The best place to stick post its?
The bathroom mirror and the fridge door.
10. Before & After Photos
It’s all very well jumping on the scales, but you can’t beat before and after photos to help spur you on.
Take photos from the front, back and side to track your progress and try to take these pics on a weekly basis.
If you’re on the ball you’ll be surprised at the difference in just a few weeks.
Of course, you don’t have to do all of these ideas, but choose one or two perhaps and see how they work for you.
