The truth of the matter is that getting fit can be pretty scary… I mean you will see a lot of changes happen at this time that can be pretty frightening. You experience changes to your body and mind that you may not be used to. Read on to see the spoooooky truth about getting fit (hint: #5 may be the worst).
What Happens When You Get in Shape
1. You’ll get spooked from all the muscles you didn’t know existed.
… you may find yourself flexing on the daily. via GIPHY.
This one is pretty obvious. The more you work out, the more definition you will see. You will lose excess fat and build lean muscle. Win win.
2. You drink a lot of water… so you’ll pee A LOT.
With all of the health benefits of drinking water, like flushing out toxins, speeding up your metabolism, relieving fatigue, regulating body temperature and more, you know the importance of drinking water… especially large amounts of water. It is said that you should drink between half of an ounce and an ounce of water for every pound you weigh. But you should take into account the conditions where you live, and how active you are.
What comes with drinking that much water? Peeing a lot. You will find yourself doing the potty dance more and more often and rushing to the bathroom constantly. But hey, it’s worth it.
…or maybe you are still trying to drink more water. You’ll get there. via GIPHY.
3. You’ll Float up a flight of stairs without feeling winded.
All of that physical activity and healthy eating has made walking up a flight of stairs way easier. You may even feel like you’re floating… we all float down here. ?
4. You become a master chef.
It may be freaky how good you’ll become at cooking. Between all your meal prepping and counting macros you have become a pro in the kitchen. Measuring your food, tracking your meals on different apps, taking your supplements, everything. Pro. You could practically do it in your sleep.
5. You do a lot of laundry.
You may be frightened with how many piles develop in your room. With working out constantly, you sweat a LOT. This makes it so the laundry accumulates, and you have load upon load of sweaty, dirty clothes to clean.
…or maybe get someone to do it for you. via GIPHY.
6. Your skin will do weird things… Like clear up.
Regular exercise promotes healthy circulation and will actually help to keep your skin healthy. Exercise will nourish your skin cells to keep it vibrant. Exercise has also been shown to ease stress, and stress can cause some problems such as acne and eczema.
7. You and protein powder become pretty tight.
You know that protein is important to help you build lean muscle, and to assist in recovery, so taking your protein after you work out has become a habit. Make a pre-workout protein shake. Get home from the gym. Mix up your protein shake. Repeat.
But you also have found that drinking the same protein shake every day has become routine, and you need to think of new ways to switch it up to get in your daily protein intake.
