Just put your head down and focus on the little things. 1. Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water each day. 2. Eat 5-6 small meals each day with a complex carb and lean protein at each meal. 3. Every workout you do, bring your A game. One more rep, one more push up, heavier weights, focus and engage your core. It makes a difference. 4. Tracking your food, keep a journal. That handful of pretzels here or that bite of cake there makes a difference. 5. Schedule your cheat meal, once per week and keep it at that! Its the sum of all these small efforts that bring about the biggest change. It's not just doing it for 1 week and expecting a transformation, but it's over the course of 3 months that you see the most dramatic results when you stick with these tips and more!
