Benchmark Photos

We all have those times where we need extra motivation to get going to the gym and focusing on our diet. I think a great way to give you that extra push is to take a benchmark or before photo.

Taking a photo of your self now will help you see the progress that you can’t see every day in the mirror. The problem with seeing yourself every day is you don’t get to see the changes that are happening over time. By taking a photo today and then over time looking at it comparing how you look not you can get confidence that the sacrifice and work you are putting in every day is working. Another bonus to this is that you can look at where you started say out of shape and push yourself harder to make sure you drive yourself to not look like that again.The only thing to do is start snapping pics and start your journey.

When taking pictures I would suggest setting a set amount of time to take a picture like every two weeks or so. Two weeks is the time it usually takes for your body to get used to your workout so if you are switching it up every two weeks you will be forcing your body to change and also seeing these results. Something else you can do while taking these pictures is adding stats in with them. For example add what you weighed when you started or another value you would like to track and see how that changes over time.  Before you know it you will have a cool souvenir of your journey with yourself.

Well that is it for today’s post hope it got you thinking to get the motivation you need. If you liked the post hit that like button and share with your friends.
