Challenge Yourself for a Change

So are you stuck in the same old daily routine that you've had for a long long time now and not seeing any changes on the scale or even in your life? If the answer is yes, then it is time to as they say, shake things up a bit, especially since you are still holding on to your dreams and goals. Trust me it's hard to get to where you want to go by driving back and forth down the same road.

To breakthrough this trap, you must challenge yourself and stop doing whats comfortable. This doesn't only apply to body transformation goals but you can also apply this to other aspects of your life such as your career. For example, if you have been stuck in the same position, role or pay at work for years and want something new then think outside of the box, dig deep, get creative and figure out how you can break out of that rut. It may mean you have to look outside of the company for inspiration.

In regards to fatloss, there are many ways to breakthrough a training plateau. Some ways to do this are to train harder than yesterday, try a new training modality and to rest. I'm serious about the resting part. I remember a client who believed she had to work super hard in the gym 7 days a week to lose some inches. She definitely threw herself into a wall that she couldnt get over. The minute she took the advice to include rest days in her routine she noticed a change and was extremely happy.

Do something difficult and different today. See how you feel when you conquer it.
