Trying to obtain a feminine physique but are frustrated with your results? I understand the emotional roller coaster of weight loss and gain. I know what it feels like to want to give up on our fitness goal after working so hard and not seeing the results that I have wanted. All I can say is don’t give up yet.
I will share with you how to enjoy the process of transforming your feminine physique.
Enjoy The Fitness Process
Avoid Extremes: A Lifestyle Is Not A Diet
Long-term results come from living a lifestyle of consistent healthy choices. A healthy and fit body does not come from extreme diets or exercise programs. Extreme diet or exercise programs lead to rebound weight gain. The diet mindset makes us feel deprived and we don’t want that.
Food is designed to be enjoyed because it is delicious, nutritious, and meant to nourish our bodies. Adjust your current eating habits to healthier ones. Learn to love whole foods. Occasionally enjoy sweet treats without feeling guilty about it. Cultivate a healthy mental, physical, and emotional balance because it can be life-changing.
If you’re a serial-dieter, it’s time to rethink your approach. Stop focusing on how much weight you want to lose. Visualize how you would love your body to look instead.
Consistency is Key. Do Not Strive for Perfection.
It’s time for you to learn to love yourself. Be kind, generous, and gentle to yourself. It’s liberating to be able to take a day off from healthy eating to enjoy a sweet treat without feeling guilty. You can do it. Simply decide to let go of the idea of having to be perfect. Focus on being consistent.
Make Peace with Your Body
There are many things you can change about your body such as body fat percentage, muscle shape, and tone. However, there are some things you can’t change such as your height to name just one. We need to make peace with what we can’t change about our bodies. This mind shift transforms how you feel about your body and helps you focus on the things you can change.
Ways to Transform Your Feminine Physique
Achieving your best body requires some fine tuning of what makes you…you. This includes everything from your metabolism, hormone levels, and body symmetry. Results are not achieved with a cookie-cutter approach since everybody’s bodies are different. Therefore, it’s imperative for you to respect, listen and trust your body.
Respect Your Body.
Take care of your body. Nurture it with sleep, rest between workouts, and nutrient-packed foods. A little self care goes a long way because it will help you train harder. You need to invest back into your body.
Listen to Your Body.
Your body will tell you when you need to rest, when you can train harder, and when it’s hungry and how much to eat in each meal. So listen. The problem with this is that we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget to listen to our bodies. Be courageous enough to do what you know is right.
Once you’re listening to your body, pay attention to the signs and take action. Tune into your inner-voice. Your body knows what it needs. Once you start listening to it, you will be surprised as to what you will learn such as what foods to avoid and when to eat.
Target Your Female Trouble Zones
If you’ve been doing the same exercise program for a great length of time and aren’t seeing results then it’s time for a re evaluate what you are doing. So what exercises work for the feminine physique?
- Workout routines that are specifically designed for the female body. They will firm, tone, and lift your muscles without putting additional strain on your joints, ligaments, and tendons.
- Fusion style training. This type of training usually combines free weights, bodyweight, metabolic training, isometrics, HIIT, and plyometrics.
- Learn how to use the mind-to-muscle connection to consciously activate the target muscles in your trouble zones. Developing muscle density in these zones will shape, tighten and lift these areas of your body.
