Mojo be back 💥
After 4 months of training like a beast trying to overcompensate for my 80% bad diet 20% good...the penny dropped. STOP ✋ stop trying to chase away the cheating and just start again. Eat clean 80% of the time. Train like I should...smart 👊🏻
Current Training Split:
3 days lower / 2 days upper
2 days cardio/metcon and Abs (not for hours & hours on the stairway to no where!)
Daily 30 minutes stepping or trotting on the treadmill only ⭐️🤸🏾♀️👌🏼
Over the last few months I’ve literally trained my body into breakdown trying to out train a bad diet which doesn’t work ‘FACT’ . It’s mentally soul destroying as you become physically f*ocked and start to lose the love for it all with no happy results with the scales just creeping up 🤷🏻♀️
✨Changing my mind set has created change in my day to day outlook✨
This time my body fat loss isn’t for stage, it’s for me and me only....This will be a slower more enjoyable journey as I WILL be enjoying life too with my squad and working on finding that happy BaLanCed place 🌈☀️🥂🥩🥗🍰
This is where my life gets serious
I’ve talked about it long enough, Im sick of fucking being average.
Don’t you look around the gym and think why can’t that be me.
Why do other people have opportunities and I don’t?
Well I thought that to and I have just sat here like a sad cunt feeling sorry for myself where now I’m gonna create my own luck.
I don’t know how many times I have said “I’m gonna start my YouTube this week.”
That was YEARS ago, years wasted!! “A dream without a plan is just a wish.” Fuck average!
And fuck anyone who talks shit on me!
Go to my Insta bio and subscribe to my YouTube because my fucken journey is going to be one hell of a ride and if you want inspiration to do better in life... ..
*FIRST VIDEO DROPS TOMORROW*
JOIN ME & Let’s fuck it up together!
So im almost stage ready in this pic. I had two layers of @protan_official on and I was feeling very excited hehe! And the hair, make up and nails just made me feel amazing. I never dress up or wear anything more than mascara, foundation and eyeliner ha so it had to be done':) I was very flat as you can see. Once I got all of my carbs in, the muscle would fill up so I was slowly eating carbs from morning until about 3pm. I was due to be on around 4:30pm. . My carb source for the day was sweet potato. It never bloated me during prep. Rice did....on prep you learn about what foods make you bloat because you're so lean you'll easily know what makes you bloat and sweet potato didnt....But it's different for everyone. I still had to be careful. If I even went a bit overboard, I would start to carry water all over. Muscles wouldn't have separation lines and my stomach would be bloated. OR If I didnt eat enough, I would look completely flat on stage. That's all well and good on a normal day but when you're on stage in a bikini being judged on your physique by not just the judges, but the audience too? Different story! But I could easily fuck this up with regards to the food that day because the anxiety that day was sooo intense so I didnt want to eat... I also stopped drinking water from 10pm the night before to dry out. So I had dry mouth, and anxiety....not good when you need to eat.
I knew I would be really nervous on stage, but if I could master being confident in all of those other areas such as walking, posing and smiling then MAYBE I could pull it off and enjoy it.
Seriously like I cant walk in shoes at all, ive flat feet and that also worried me so 6am every morning I put on my 3" heal stage shoes and tried to do a confident stage walk while walking around the park.. I swear if anyone seen me they'd be like "there's a mad woman thinking shes only gorgeous"
No fucks given at that point :)
Pre workout nutrition 🔤
In my opinion often either spend too much time stressing over or very underutilized. Having pre workout carbohydrates leading into your session is obviously going to benefit you prior to training, but the confusion as to how much or what to eat is often confused.
There is essentially no right or wrong answer but go by what your body can handle. An example is if you eat too much too soon before your session you may experience a GI upset and feel like a rock is in your stomach. Or on the other end if you don't eat for a long period of time you mat experience fatigue early.
If you are currently dieting, it would be smart to save a good bulk of your carbs times around your pre and post workout training. I've found that for the most part pre workout isn't as important if you are not on the lower ends of body fat.
Listen to what your body can handle. If you find a big meal 2-3 hours prior is sufficient then work with that. Or if you're like me having something small and light (pop tarts 🤤) 30-60 minutes before training works best.
6 years of competing. I LOVE what I do. I have loved this industry for many years, I have put hard work in for many years. My spare time outside of my FT job (where I help people with physical and psychological injury) has been invested all in helping others - for 12 years I coached and mentored young women at a high school, I have been an ambassador since 2015 for Living Beauty, I now coach and mentor our girls in health, competition prep and posing coaching. .
For years I had my eyes set on getting up on the WBFF stage. My personal goal and dream. I finally achieved this dream October last year, and placed first Bikini Diva 35+. As I head into my 13th comp @wbff_aust in May, I am grateful. My last prep was challenging juggling full time work, study, coaching and mentoring young girls at a high school, and other personal pressures that I somehow managed to carry. I don't know how I did it, but it got done. .
The start of my prep this season was also made challenging with said personal pressures... that heavily affected my mental well-being and all aspects of my life. No matter how hard I tried to make them right, there is only so much you have control over. So you're left to do the best you can with what you've got. I am grateful ... for having such an amazing support network in my friends, and family that were there to catch me before I even had to ask, so humbled. ❤️
I thought many times during the last couple of months about postponing my competition date to the next show, (and I am someone that NEVER rolls over) the amount of stress I was put under and the toll it took, the thought of doing this just didn't sit right with me... because May 5th is a significant date for me. .
It's the 1st anniversary of the day I lost someone so very dear to me, my Nanna, one of the strongest and most beautiful humans I knew. Those that know me well, know I idolized her. This has been in the back of my mind the whole time. I just do not want to miss it, and I know she would be so disappointed for me if she knew. Knowing what she had dealt with in her life, and still managed to live each day with gratitude and love... is all the motivation I need to do the same.
