Are you the skinny one? Not the supermodel, but the sickly one? Or are you the overly healthy one? You know, everyone has their own ‘ideal’ body: shaped biceps and triceps, strong legs, six-pack abs, and more. But don’t worry, because not everyone has reached a point that they have achieved their dream body. Having those features is not just an overnight effort. It would take months, or even years, before you could achieve the body that you want. You will have to build vigorously, invest time, money and effort, so that you could give it all for the body you want.
Before you could start building your muscles to get the body you want, start with a goal in mind. What do you want to become or look like after all this? Do you want to be that really large person with large muscles or you want to be just fit? Having a goal in mind, that would be your focus for all the efforts that you will take. It will be your motivation. In every step you take, remember your goal. And no goal is too difficult to achieve; you just have to give yourself, give the effort, give you heart into it. Remind yourself always: Goals. Reach YOUR Goals.
Having the mindset and self-motivation of achieving the goal, there are a lot enticing methods out there, with some even promising that you would attain your goals in days or in a few weeks. There are methods ranging from paid fitness programs (just consult your nearest fitness center) to do-it-yourself programs (research online tutorials). Simple exercises such as walking a mile or so daily is healthy and could help you build it. Push-ups and sit-ups may do sometimes. Even dancing with friends, moving your body may help. There maybe are useful equipment that could help such as weights, use it. Don’t be lazy and just sit down because doing nothing does nothing. And before you follow a certain plan or program, make sure that it is good, compatible for you. But do not be overwhelmed: you may be confused by the information that you will get as you try methods, but carry on. Keep walking and make the thing real.
Aside from the physical efforts, you also have to take a look in your diet. Diet, contrary to popular belief, is not about eating less to the point of fasting or having a hunger strike, but about the set of food you eat daily. You just can’t do the exercises and eat instant, nutrition-less meals daily and reach that goal. You must be conscious on your own diet. Follow your fitness program trainer or research about the food that you will eat. Remember, it is not only the exercise that makes you fit, but also the diet because it is the source of the body’s nutrients, carbohydrates and proteins. In building your muscles, your body, you will need discipline. You would have to follow the programs and not eat the restrictions. There may be temptations, delicious-looking, unhealthy food pulling you to eat it, but again, remember: you will achieve your goal. You will get what you want. When living healthy, do it holistically.
Again, it is not that easy: having a goal to achieve the body you want. It takes not only time, effort, money; but also attitudes, motivations, discipline, and your heart into it. Programs and diet is only a small part, because the bigger part of achieving this goal is you: how you think about it, your mindset, your focus, and your gusto in sculpting your body. Because after investing all your efforts into building your dream and after seeing you own masterpiece (your well-built and sculpted body) everything is worth it.
