Alright, this is where mental toughness comes into play. We have begun with a 12-week plan for a bikini body, and checked in at 6 weeks to deal with cravings and pitfalls. If you have been on a fitness and nutrition program for 8 weeks, you should be seeing some results. This is about the time where your metabolism starts to adjust to the changes you are making. These last 4 weeks are crucial in order to make the change more permanent.
Dig deep to stay the course and find your motivation. Mine came through swimsuit shopping…talk about a motivator! Harsh lighting and styles that didn’t flatter…at all. Don’t get me wrong, I still found two really cute bikinis. But to make them look even better and to let me have some fudge room for margaritas and banana monkeys, I need to stay focused.
The mantra is, “PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION”, it keeps you sane.
