We were working on a lot today. About 5 different thoughts to get through during each swing & it shows. I like where we are at and how we are powering the swing. We are getting closer. We will connect deeper, adjust the obvious, then continue working in this direction.
It all begins and ends with your mind. What you give power to, has power over you. If you allow it.
Lil update on journey to stage and prep life
Mindset is proving to be more and more important as the days go by and comp gets closer. Im not here trying to make out that this journey is easy or perfect. Because let me tell you it is far from that. This journey requires so much mental strength it's crazy. Thus week has probably been the hardest or worst week so far, but today I woke up feeling good. Everyday this week I had to remind myself of my why, Tuesday was a struggle physically because of my shoulders, neck and back being super tight, during the first superset i was ready to walk out. It's so frustrating when things like that happen that you really have no control over. I sat in the bench for a good 15 minutes talking myself into continuing, and to just go abit lighter and take extra rest and stretch out when necessary. Wednesday and Thursday all I did at work for the entire day was pretty much make red velvet cupcakes. 200 of them. Wednesday I managed to get through not too bad. Thursday I gave in, I binged I ate red velvet, not a little but almost a whole piece. Why I don't know. I just caved, the feeling afterwards was terrible, feeling like you've let yourself down, failed, annoyed, frustrated so many emotions. You tell your coach they say don't stress, it's normal, everything will be okay, whilst you know what you did wasn't right, you know it's not going to ruin everything. Friday made me determined to get back on track and not let what happened bother me. It also shed some light on listening to my body. So right now I'm on the treadmill doing my fasted cardio at 1:30om because I let myself sleep in and get some much needed rest. Today I am feeling amazing, refreshed and ready to keep powering through these next few weeks. A journey doesn't just go up sometimes it takes bumps on the road to make you level up.
Over the next 4 weeks I'm going to be journalling and really focusing on mindset, because your body won't go anywhere your mind doesn't push it.
Today should be rest day...but it’s was boring and I decided go to the gym and you know what😅 I hit my new PR!😈
Bench press: 65kg x 1
At first I set 65kg and failed. Then I did for once 62,5kg. Then I failed again 65kg...💩 And only on third time I did this shit!😎
Everyone have supporters and haters!
For example there’s people around you who always tell you never give up until your dreams come true, never give up even it seems impossible! I appreciate these people around me!❤️
And there’s people behind your back who want to see you falling and failing! Why we should give them what they want 🤦🏼♀️ Even you fall down you should stand up and try one more time and one more...! Show them that you CAN!💪🏼
For example my family don’t like what I do (weight lifting), but I still spending my time in the gym because I love it af!💕 Do what you love and love what you do right😌🔥
Just watch first video till the end and you will see my today’s FAIL!😅 After every work day(I’m working 24 hours) I’m so fucking weak and when I’m trying to do something like this you can see what happens 🤷🏼♀️ When you are weak and tired just stay at home hah.
