I started my morning with breakfast which was my pre-workout meal-
Egg whites topped with hot sauce, steak tips, sweet potato, avocado along with a green smoothie blended with spinach, coconut water, and apple.
Todays lower body workout focused primarily on Glutes and Hamstrings-
My workout was awesome! I felt great and pushed hard, so my post workout meal was everything! I was so hungry when I cam home from the gym. I was wishing that I had my meal prepped in advance but my tilapia was thawing as I was at the gym.
I chopped zucchini, tomatoes and peppers and topped the tilapia with a cajun steak seasoning and cooked it all in coconut oil. It was SO good and the veggies created a voluminous meal that was extremely filling.
I spent a good bit of my evening out on the patio. I had my afternoon snack while catching up on some of my favorite you-tubers and while scrolling through IG, this post was made by one of my competitor clients…
So to those that don’t understand the word, commitment….This is what it takes to reach goals. She is dining out with her family. They are each eating their own personal pizza while she is having a pre-prepped meal out of tupperware. Is it glamorous? No. Had she rather eat pizza with her family? Yes.
When I hear people say that they can’t reach goals because of those around them or their family and friends don’t share in the same goals…well here is what it takes. It is NOT an easy lifestyle, but it is doable.
Once her competition is over, she can enjoy her once weekly indulgence of pizza with those around her, but the remaining time, she will continue making healthy choices. A competitors diet is more strict than the average person; however, once the competition is over, its still a lifestyle.
Eating grilled chicken, brussels sprouts, brown rice, fish, fruits and vegetables does not mean that you are on a diet. It means that you make conscious decisions of what you put in your body. The sooner a person realizes that this is a daily commitment and not a diet, the sooner they realize that what was once a goal, has become a sustainable lifestyle.
Its not easy you guys, but if you truly want to reach a goal and see lifelong changes within yourself, you HAVE TO COMMIT.
