Goals


We all have them, we all want to achieve them but have you mapped out the destination that its going to take to do so????

My goals in regards to Figure Comps for 2010:

I'm 30 weeks from first comp of the year, 10 weeks till i start dieting am i a Lil nervous ... YES, Why?? I have done this all before BUT sometimes i feel like I'm starting from scratch all over again! I have had one week off training since my comp last year and a few days here and there, I'm certain that my composition has changed in terms of muscle growth and maintenance (in some areas) But it's the unknown of what you have hiding that gets to you when your holding too much body fat! Hmmmm that's brings me to Goals!!!!

This year I'm going to have a plan of attack for Post comp BLOW OUT! Instead of the "pff I've dieted for 3 + months i can have what i like when i like" attitude! I had a maintenance body weight that i wanted to bring myself back to and hold but hey that went out the window! Some days i get down on myself for how out of control i got but I'm human and it was something i had to experience to learn i guess even though everyone was ready to tell you how fat i was going to get and thanks to the lovely people out there that have reminded me ever since bahaha F**kers! So i think this is a Lil assignment for Mick and i to start working on as the time gets closer!

Another goal to keep in check over my Journey is SELF BELIEF most competitors will know what i mean when i say the negativity that comes from the outsiders can sometimes make your dreams seem a Lil hazy and self doubt seems to arise!
One thing i did find i fell into was comparing myself to others about to step on the stage with me or around the same time as me and being concerned that's my progress was behind or i was never going to lean down in time... Reality check Hannah, you can not compare your self to some one that has a completely different composition to you FULL STOP!
In regards to all this I'm out there competing against myself and to prove to no one but me that I'm stepping on that stage knowing and feeling that I'm representing every blood sweat and tear earned and delivering on the day NO REGRETS!

It all starts in the mind we create a dream/ goal, we want to achieve it we plod along thinking how we are going to do it this is where some throw in the goals/dreams because there was not enough thought put into it and dove in full steam ahead to crash and burn, a PLAN of attack is what is needed to achieve anything you want, you had to roll before you crawled you had to crawl before you walked.... STEPPING STONES lead you on the path to your goals! So over the next 10 weeks i have set myself a goal before i dive straight into comp prep! I have a goal weight i would like to reach by 20weeks out, i want my nutrition to be well balanced and ready for adaptation to comp season and training to be like its my last ever session.

2010 i am ready for you what ever the universe is ready to throw at me i will throw back double : )

Lost without them!


Yesterday my Scales broke noooooooo! Maybe it's a sign to not rely on them for a while. Most people that know me know I'm pretty consistent (obsessed) with weighing myself on a regular basis I know its silly but sometimes when reading them it can actually prompt my motivation for the day! So looks like i have to let go now until i get a new set! I was so lost and feeling anxious this morning sad i know hehe!

Lil report on how operation "Sexy Bitch" is going:

Well January was not the best of mths lots of hiccups along the way but February seems to be firing along well.
The weekend that just past was my sisters 21st birthday party and I'm happy to report no alchol and no bad food i stuck to the plan i ate before i left and sipped on a few coke zeros throughout the night YAY big step for me : ) So all in all Nutrition over last 10days has been great one planned treat meal for the movies the other day but besides that im cruising along just fine!

Training has been awesome i have Mick training me on Saturdays usually just focusing on technique and range of the exercises I'm performing eg more depth in my squats etc. I'm loving having him there to push that lil bit more out i haven't had anyone (him) train me in like 5yrs so it felt good! Plus those days i have the whole gym to myself before we open up and i get to pump some iron to MY favourite tunes hehe!

I have picked up 3 extra classes due to one of my work collegues leaving and at present i'm teaching 3 steps, 2 Jams and a pump class! Sleeping awesome at night hehe!

I'm really looking forward to catching up with a few of you girls at the Ifbb comp in April it will be exciting to meet you in person and cheer on the lovely Tara : )

Well just thought i'd report in and say "hi" and let you know where I'm at with stuff so sorry it was a bit random and all over the shop : )

Keep the blogs still coming girls I'm loving reading them all : )

Train hard, eat well and love every bit of it! xx
