These six common mistakes could be standing between you and your fitness goals.
Remember those fitness resolutions you made back in January? You know, the promises to add a little muscle, shed a little flab, and get strong as hell? Yeah, those. With summer around the corner, now is the perfect time to check in on your progress. Have you begun to see major changes in your body and energy? Or, are your extra efforts to eat clean and hit the gym failing to deliver the results you hoped for? If you answered “yes” to the latter, you’re not alone. Even when they think they’re going by the book, so many people fall short of their fitness goals, making it hard to stay focused and motivated. But don’t give up! Time to take a step back and reevaluate the last few months to see if one of these common mistakes could be sabotaging your efforts.
Don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone is different! This is your journey and as long as you stay emotionally and physically committed to your goals, your results will come.
