More often than I care to admit, I fall asleep without washing my face. I live with the repercussions of blemishes, premature aging, and overall oiliness, meaning I end up needing more skin care products and costing myself more money, not to mention I’m old enough to know better. Why? Why in the world do I do this to myself? Bad habits, baby, they’re hard to break.

Getting ripped is a goal for many, but few will actually achieve it. To really showcase your hard-earned muscle, focus needs to be not just on lifting and training but on burning fat and cutting the junk from your diet. Fact: body fat blocks muscle definition. So attack it! And try these tips to finally get that lean, cut physique you desire.
You’re an athlete. You train hard and train often. Some days, you even work out twice. How could you possibly be gaining weight — and not the kind you want? When you’re not gaining muscle mass, something has to give…and that’s you. You have to give yourself the tools, the time and, yes, even a few treats to stay focused and on track.
I love to write things down. You might call me a list person. I like to see in writing what I have to do and to check each item off the list as I get it done. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and a sense that a goal has been achieved. Besides keeping a to-do list, I also jot down my diet and fitness activities every day.
You might think twice about sneaking that slice of cake if you know you’ll have to confess your splurge in writing later! Besides showcasing slip-ups, a food journal can be a helpful tool for learning more about your eating patterns—and for identifying weak spots that may be holding you back from diet success.
