Why haven't I seen a difference yet?

So many people start a 6-week BootCamp and halfway through are wondering..."why haven't I seen a difference yet?"  The answer is be patient, be diligent, and don't give up!

Think of your body like a garden.  If you plant seeds today, you don’t expect to eat a bountiful harvest tomorrow.  You continue to cultivate the seeds, giving them nourishment, water, and time to grow.  It takes time and patience to develop, as it does with a new workout regimen.

If philosophy and metaphors aren’t for you…think of it in these terms.  Print it out, tape it to your full length mirror, set it as your wallpaper on your work computer or your phone…just comitt it to memory!  Especially if you are just starting your journey to a healthier you!

By the end of week 4 you will start to feel a difference -- you won't be quite as  sluggish, those pants might be just a bit too loose, your skin will be a little bit brighter, you’ll be able to push out an extra 2-3 pushups in that 15 second block….

At the end of week 8 your closest friends & family will really start to see the will see the definition in your arms a little, maybe have to pin a pair of pants...wait, girl, where have those cheekbones been hiding?!?

Finally, at the end of 12 weeks the rest of the world will start to notice.  That cute barista at Starbucks just gave you a 2nd look, or one of your neighbors calls out "Hey, lookin’ good - tell me your secret!"
