“I have started doing 30 minutes of cardio and 60 min of muscle training since January 3-5days a week. When can I expect to see definition in my muscles. I have noticed improvements in strength and endurance, but not appearence.”
-kiskidee

the-exercist:

All of this depends on how your body looked before, how much fat you’re carrying, where that fat is distributed, what your health is currently like, what your genetic history is like, what sort of training you’re doing, how much that training challenges you, what you’re eating, what you define as “definition” in terms of your own body, how you hold your posture, what sort of lighting you’re viewing your body in…..oh god, and so many more variables!

The point is that there’s no way to accurately estimate these things. Without knowing anything about you, your body, your training or your lifestyle, it’s downright impossible for me to guess. But even an informed professional would have a hard time pinpointing a period of time where you would be guaranteed to see visible definition. Your body is different than any other body and, even if you follow the same diet and exercise regime as a hundred other people, your lifestyle and genetics will impact the way that the routine affects you.

In the end - Try not to dwell on it too much. If visible change happens and you like the way that it makes you look, then great! If not, then enjoy exercising just for the sake of it. The process itself should be rewarding.

sempiternal-ecdemomania:

Let’s celebrate tonight. And for the rest of our lives. Let’s celebrate the fact that I lived and survived. That despite hating myself, I loved myself enough to do this, to put myself before everything for the first time in my life. Let’s celebrate every meal and every battle as a victory. Let’s celebrate because I am still around to see the stars. Let’s celebrate the fact that something mattered more to me than being skinny, than conforming to society’s absurd standards: let’s celebrate me.
