Sometimes the scale doesn’t budge and you wonder if you are getting any healthier on your fitness plan. Well, you are especially if you are experiencing any of these signs.
You feel like taking on something new. That’s a great sign that you are getting healthier. It shows a heightened energy level and more active mentality.
Your clothes are fitting differently.
Your medical test scores are improving. Your triglycerides, cholesterol, blood sugar levels and thyroid readings have all changed since you’ve adopted a healthier lifestyle.
You feel more positive and energetic. That is a natural by product of getting healthier. The body starts working better and when it does, it releases feel good chemicals in the brain, delivers energy to the cells more efficiently and you feel better day by day.
Your hair, skin and nails start to look healthy. As a result of getting the right nutrients into your body, your body will start to look better all over. Not only will you lose/gain weight on a proper nutrition plan, but your hair, skin and nails will start to look lustrous too.
You look forward to your workout time. This is definitely a good sign. Your body is craving movement and the endorphins it brings. Endorphins are feel-good chemicals released in the brain that bust stress during and after exercise.
You crave healthier food. If you are starting to think a fresh banana sounds better than banana chips, you are well on your way. Is your chocolate getting a bit darker these days? Are you choosing food closer to its natural state or cutting out soda and liking it? Good for you!
