Once you have already educated yourself on proper diets and exercises, your next step to fulfilling your dream is to set your inspiration. Now, ask your self…Why do you want to get in shape?
• Was it to impress your sexy/handsome co-worker or classmate?
• Or planning to win a fitness competition?
• You wanted to become a hot mom or dad?
• Wanted to be fit for lifetime?
• Your partner begged you to get rid of you lazy fatty stomach?

Or prove your sexy/fit neighbor that you can also be like him/her?

Again, inspiration is your motivation to overcome one problem, and once you have set up your inspiration, always put it in your mind and do not forget it! Once you forget it, it is just like raising a flag in the war and you just lose the game.

If you go to gym, you would see people bringing picture of a hot guy or woman with them. What’s that for? That is one of setting you inspiration. You wanted to be like Arnold? Then always look on his picture and build more muscles or you wanted to become Angelina? Do more fat burning exercise and some workouts to make your body proportional. Envy is NOT bad all the time. Sometimes, we do envy to be like that person, and that is one part of achieving your dreamed body.

Once you have indicated all your inspiration, it is time for you to taste the third spice…

Bringing someone to your workout activity will help you succeed. First, there is someone who will assist you throughout your training, and second you won’t get bored.

Call a friend and encourage him/her to change her lifestyle and do it like yours. When both of you became enthusiastic, then it won’t be hard for you to do your training anymore. You help each other; assist each other so that no one would be injured at the end of the day. It is also important to tell your friends about the changes you have noticed. Hearing your friends’ admiration is the best relief you could have after a long run of workout or training.
If you wanted to be hotter than your buddy, then forget about your buddy! Go to gym and meet stronger people, lift weights with them or run with them. If you want more training techniques, then asked people who are more educated than you and do what it says.

Once you have successfully combined these three spices to getting a healthy and fit body, then it won’t fail you in the end. Putting your goals in the heart gives you real motivation that keeps you hungry for more. Remember, don’t just think of your goals, but do what are needed to achieve your goals! Stop watching your favorite movie; eat a lot of chocolates or hamburger! Get yourself a healthy lifestyle, work, eat proper diet, and avoid unhealthy worship.
