In the last few weeks i have had a lot of questions about motivation to achieving my goals... It starts off plain and simple with "How bad do you want to achieve it?" Lots of things help motivate me...
Music when training can give me that extra push in a session where my energy levels may be lagging, i listen to all styles of music generally either something with a good beat or some heavy rock tunes!!!
Quotations thats stand out and make you stop and think how you can apply your goals which can pick your drive up!
Talking to other people that share the same goals and dreams as yourself or even people who are on the same path as you.
Pictures of athletes that you aspire to I love bodies like Pauline Nordin, Ava Cowan, Monica Brant.... the list goes on so i tend to surround myself with these pictures.
Records, what i mean by that is tracking everything like training, measurements, weight tracking, food tracking if you see changes in these numbers and the results you are achieving it helpes motivate you thru to that next step..
Support network having positive people around you that encourage you to achieve your goals and help by listening and talking about things that they may not understand but do not judge and are just soley there for the support, there are so many of you out there i'd love to thank but im scared id forget someone so you all know who you are that have made each step to the stage a dream come true : )
Shows nothing like the real thing to motivate you, i went and watched on the weekend the Brisbane INBA show and got to see some amazing athletes on stage! Was great to meet up with Steph and Ali, Leisl, Chelle, Shannon, Leanne, Selina, Nicky, Kate, Kylie oh i hope i haven't forgotten anyone! Just watching the show made me so inspired and ready for round 2 for me BRING IT ON!!! I also can't wait for the ANB Asia Pacs this weekend clearing my vocals now!!!
These are just a few things that do help motivate me when im not feeling on top of the world and feel that i maybe slipping in achieving the goal i have at mind!
So tell me what motivates you???????
A lil update where I'm at at the moment.....
Training: Going really well enjoying every minute of it
Cardio: i have added an extra Hiit to my week i love Hiits sometimes a lil hard to start with but once I'm started I'm on fire!!!
Nutrition: is going well still a few lil things i can tidy up and i need to snap out of the one liner i like to pull " I'm hungry" as if i really am yet hehe!!!
Headspace: in a comfortable space at the moment 16.5 weeks out not a lot to report on the scales side this is one thing i don't want to find myself obsessing about as i did last year! At the end of the day it doesn't matter what you weigh on the stage or what ml your at with body fat its what you bring to the stage that counts a nice lean muscular body and thats where my mind is at at the moment FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS!!!
With or without my mojo... the time is NOW!!!
