Getting started on a new journey can be tough! In fact, getting started is probably the hardest part of the journey. When the journey we are talking about is one of changing your lifestyle to reach fitness goals, getting started can quite frankly be discouraging. Everyone wants the end result, but no one wants to really do the initial steps to earning those results. Of course hard work, dedication, and consistency are all very important steps in the process, but that is not what I am getting at with all of this. I am talking about taking about the step after you take a long look in the mirror and set your goals and decide to make that change, but before you actually jump right in. This step is the first step in tracking your progress… your BEFORE photos and measurements! This is something that almost everyone dreads, but it is something so important in order to get going. First remember, you are you and you are beautiful! When you snap this photo, you don’t turn into some horrible nasty beast, it is merely a photo of who you are today. It is a photo to remind you along the way that you are making progress, that your hard work is paying off. So many people skip this step in the process because they feel embarrassed or because they can’t bear for anyone to see these photos. It’s natural to feel this way because at this point you are unhappy with your current “you” and you are making the decision to find a better “you” The folks that do skip this step are the ones kicking themselves in the butt later!!
So now that you have decided to take the photos and measurements (a decision you will not regret) you may be thinking “How am I supposed to take these??” “How do I get accurate photos and measurements?” “What is the right angle?” Well, look no further!! Thanks to the team over at Beachbody, they have created these 2 very easy to follow videos on the steps to getting the best before photos and measurements! Yayyyy!! Now take those pics and measure those bodies and then pat yourself on the back! Congrats, you got the hardest part out of the way and now its time for the “fun stuff”
