Motivation Monday: mindless thoughts,

20160314_125201000_iOSI love those mondays (or days in general) when waking up isn’t tough. I was able to get right up, drink my pre workout & head on over to the gym despite the rain. Although I started with my 30 minute cardio session, I really didn’t want to complete it. The lack of progress I have been feeling lately in regards to my competition are affecting me mentally

why am I not sleek, fit, and ab-showing yet?

is this normal?

is my diet the right one for me?

I was getting too flustered this morning with negative thoughts so I did my best to drown them out and ended up having a fairly successful leg day!

Body image: we are all so self critical and nit-pick at the smallest things about ourselves. Focusing on our best features deems us as “cocky” or “self-absorbed”,  but once we start nit picking on the worst we’re just looking for attention apparently. There’s no winning in society! I decided to stop thinking negatively about myself this morning and focus on the positives that will happen today:

  • I will finish this cardio session strong
  • I will go home and stick to my diet all day
  • I will inspire people to be healthy as I teach about fiber benefits at a local community center
  • I will make connections with parents at the regional hospital’s family health night tonight
  • I will laugh a lot
  • I will enjoy my cup of coffee (or 2 heheh)

 

It can be tough to stay positive, but surrounding yourself with positive thoughts and people can truly affect your mood for the better.

    Its 100% normal not to see abs, its really genetics. Some girls, actually MOST girls don’t get abs until the day of the show. No joke. Do not stress it. The cardio is doing you good, so do not doubt that. On prep, you may also go through body dysmorphia where you don’t actually see how good you look. I didn’t realize this until after looking back at my pictures how good I actually looked. Its crazy. Try not to focus on how you look, just focus on what you do and you will look the best that you can based off of that. 🙂
