TRUST THE PROCESS 🚨
Here’s the deal... For me, feeling a little “fluffy” has always been a trigger for me to restrict food! I suffered for many many years with food issues, particularly restricting! This part of my life has long since been recovered but certainly prepping for a show has its ups and downs! So here’s the truth for me and my experience!
Prepping for a show is no joke! It takes more time than you think. It’s not just the workouts in the gym!! It’s having to take a look at myself and not compare myself to anyone else - ONLY my own progress!! This is hard and we are all guilty of looking on social media to see who’s gonna be on stage with you! Don’t do it! Aim to beat your own best!
It’s the “no, thank you” on desserts, “no thanks” to going for a drink (that one’s easy for me, I don’t drink lol) It’s being the annoying friend at dinner modifying your salad and no oil on fish or chicken!
It’s the inside thoughts... Well if I just move this meal here or don’t take that cheat meal maybe I’ll get leaner faster!! NO, WRONG! Follow your diet, trust your coach and trust the process!
It’s the hours spent prepping your food for the week! It’s posing practice after workouts. It’s managing all of it! Not to mention, kids schedules, work and everything in between!
What’s NOT doable during a show prep is NOT TRUSTING the process or your coach! You hire a coach for a reason, so you don’t have to think lol (cause trust me, by the end you’re not gonna want to think lol)
If your coach says we are working on gains and gives you a shit ton of food and minimal cardio! DO NOT go doing extra cardio! TRUST THE PROCESS
If you’re starting to cut but you’re craving those cookies and think you can go just burn them off doing an hour of extra cardio... that’s not how this works!!! If your coach tells you that you need to work harder at certain areas it’s NOT PERSONAL this is what you have hired them to do! Look at my body and critique it... that’s the WHOLE point!!! I’m beyond grateful for this journey and prep on the way to #wbffAtlanticCity
A HUGE thank you to my coaches... @n8fitness
And to @paul_dillett
For putting on the best shows!
