We all have a different picture of what the perfect body is. Heath and fitness magazines give us what they view as what is perfect. Usually, what is put in these magazines is a fantasy and extremely unrealistic for most people. We may have big ideas of what we want to accomplish, but the reality is the time it takes to get to this is just too much for most.
Even the most modest of goals means that you have to be consistent with your workouts and challenge yourself on a daily basis. Try not to compare yourself to others at the gym or a picture you see in a magazine. One, we are all different and don’t respond to exercise in all the same way. Two, with magazine fitness models, they are doing things that really aren’t healthy and then there is the photo touch ups.
Trying to attain that “perfect body” can be derailing for some because if they aren’t able to get to that, they will be disappointed and possibly quit. If you know someone who has a physique you would want, ask them what they do on a daily basis and how long they have been doing that. You will have a better idea of what it takes and then you can decide if you want to do that.
