#3 Unrealistic Expectations

One thing i discuss many times before when it comes to bombshell fitness is the concept of SMART goals.

SMART is an acronym that stands for:

  • Specific

  • Measureable

  • Achievable

  • Realistic

  • Time-bound

Structuring your goals in life (regardless if they’re fitness related or not) around the SMART philosophy can help encourage greater success.

One of the many reasons individuals struggle to lose weight, and ultimately abandon their diet and exercise regimen, is that they simply have unrealistic expectations of what they can achieve in a given amount of time.

This is, in large part, due to magazines, blogs, and social media promoting unrealistic results in illogical timeframes (e.g. shed 15 pounds in 5 days, build 20 lbs of muscle in 30 days, etc.).

Now, you might be able to lose 15 pounds in 5 days, but that will be almost pure water weight with very little actual fat loss.

A reasonable rate of weight loss is between 1-2 pounds per week, assuming you are not very overweight or obese. Trying to lose weight any faster than this can lead to muscle loss, which only serves to worsen body composition and decrease metabolism.

In addition to tracking your body weight, it can also be helpful to take a few measurements (waist, thigh, chest, upper arm) as well as progress photos. This way, even if your body weight stays the same for a week or two, if you see your tape measurements going down or your progress photos improving, you know you’re still making progress!
