Don’t let your body get used to your workouts! Challenge yourself!

Push yourself to the limit, but know where your limit is.

There’s nothing more dangerous than going past the point of over-exertion and over-exhaustion. Think about it. You’re body is telling you when enough is enough. If you continue to push it when it’s had enough, you may be putting it danger of serious injury. If you get that injury, it becomes a major setback to achieving your goals. No workout = no progress. Continue to persevere, but don’t injure yourself in a rush to reach your goal.

Countdown to Summer (77 days)

#77 : To lose weight, you must eat in a calorie deficit every day. For example a deficit of 500 a day from your maintenance calorie intake will help you lose 1 lb a week because 3,500 calories = 1 pound.

It doesn’t matter if you do five hours of cardio a day, you won’t lose weight if you eat at your maintenance calories or more. ( of course this would be you eating more than your maintenance + calories burnt from cardio )

Calorie deficit = weight loss. Simple as that.
