    I will say one thing though, when you do finally see results, knowing how hard you have worked, makes it THAT better. I do still check myself after a workout though – it’s a workout habit! x

    Soooo true, fabulous post! You’ve got yourself another follower 🙂 Although I will disagree with you on one point – I think it does (or should) get easier eventually, depending on what you mean by “easy.” Sure, working out and eating right is hard work sometimes, and when I started my journey I totally relate to feeling like it’s always gonna be really hard. But now that I’m a little farther down the road I’ve found some non-traditional types of exercise that make working out a LOT more fun and something I actually crave. And as far as eating healthy, isn’t anywhere near as awful as it used to be because my body craves the good stuff (most of the time, that is). Just thought I’d share my two cents to try to encourage you a bit 🙂 But anyways, great post and I look forward to reading more in the future! 😀

      Hi Elizabeth,
      Thank you for taking the time to read my article and thank you for the follow!
      What I meant by “it never gets easier”, is that the workouts themselves are not, in my opinion, suppose to be easy.
      When I work out now, I always push myself, but before, I used to wish I could work out and not feel any pain or sweat etc.
      I feel the same as you when it comes to craving exercise now and I like the feeling, after I have worked out. In terms of eating healthier as well, I think your body does start to adapt, and the more you experiment, the easier it gets.
      I used to never eat salad, until I decided to play around with options for example.
      I look forward to posts from you as well. 🙂

    Haha you will get there! It helps to take before and after pics. Even if you don’t post them, if you take them at the same time with the same lighting, you’ll probably notice changes that you don’t see, when looking in the mirror after a workout. Thank you for reading! x

    So true, everything. Boyfriend always give me sweet stuff because he knows I love them and then I’m like ‘no, go away, I don’t want to see them’ 😀 And then take a minute after every workout to check if that ab hasn’t popped out yet! Loved your post! x

      I do literally just expect to wake up one morning and come across a set of abs. Haha like in Disney, woodland animals or mice come along and carve them out for me as I sleep. Thank you for reading!X

    Lol that’s hilarious! All of these are so true. I keep expecting to wake up the morning after a good workout and see an amazing body with abs and it never happens… maybe one day!

    That last one gets me. I don’t really workout often, but I want to. In the rare cases that I do workout for at least a few days in a row, I already want to see change. But I don’t, and that bugs me which is silly, cause obviously it’s going to take a while to see results!

      It helps if you look out for the mental changes as well. Think of taking care of yourself alongside looking for definition. Really it all takes a few weeks to actually get the benefits. I don’t think it’s silly, I think it’s a natural thing. Maybe if you do stuff that doesn’t seem like a workout. Like hikes and stuff, if that interests you.

    You can’t win really. If people see you eating healthy, they say “wow, I don’t know how you eat so healthy”, or “don’t you just ever want ‘normal food’. Then, when you do have something ‘bad’, they act like the health police. Oh well, as long as we know how we eat majority of the time right lol.

    Sometimes people just don’t get that you do still indulge, but you want to indulge in your own way. I can eat chocolate and a friend will say, oh I thought you were healthy? But they haven’t seen my entire food schedule right haha. Thank you for reading 🙂

I would love to read your thoughts!
