Here is a whole lot of people out there who start working out and after just a few weeks (even days!) they start to ask “When will I see results from working out?”
It kinda makes me laugh to see people who really want and expect changes to happen overnight. I mean really. Do they really think that doing a few crunches or a couple of DVD workouts in their house is going to change their body in just a few days?
I sometimes see people at the gym, who are not in that great of shape, use an ab machine and immediately go to a mirror to lift their shirt to see if they see their abs developing.
“Fat chance!” I think to myself, “It doesn’t work that way”
So when will you see results from working out? Well the truth is that it can take a pretty long time. I know a lot of you don’t want to hear that and I’m sorry to burst anybody’s bubble but it’s the truth.
One of the things I have learned as I have gotten older is that any drastic or significant change we make in our lives does take time to happen. If it took you a long time to get out of shape it will probably take just as long to get back into shape.
I mean come on, look how long it takes for us to grow hair! You really think you can change your body faster than you can grow hair? Puh…leeeeze!
The only thing you can do is to be consistent. Keep going and going. The changes will come. You just got to be patient.
This is what separates those who really want it from those who think they want it.
Stick to a workout long enough and the changes will come. I promise…. Well, I personally don’t promise, but your body will make that promise to you without ever telling you.
Put in the work and your body will promise you results. They may not come fast but they will come no matter what.……
