Life changes when you begin working out, a lot of things seem different. You may be wondering to yourself ‘Is my workout working?’ Well, here is my run-down of 9 Ways To Tell If Your Workout is actually Working.
1. Climbing Stairs Feels Easier Than Before
You’ve got that extra spring in your legs out of nowhere. Your legs have gotten stronger and it’s definitely a good thing!
2. Clothes Don’t Fit Like They Did Before
Whether your regular t-shirts now fit more like muscle t-shirts, or your pants feel a bit roomier in the waist, your body has changed which shows significant progress.
3. You’re More Aware Of The Protein Content In Foods
You’re able to look at any food and make an estimation of how much protein/carbs/fat it may contain before you decide to eat it.
Following a meal plan or counting calories for any amount of time makes you more aware of what you eat and the ingredients your food contains, which makes you look at the makeup of a plate of food in a completely different way than before.
4. People Notice The Change
Your friends/family start commenting on how you look different – These are people who see you regularly, so any changes are more apparent to them. Keep up the good work.
5 You’re Looking Forward To Summer
