PERCEPTIONS, PROPORTIONS & THE LACK OF TAN:😃 If I could pass on anything to anyone on a fitness journey, it's that you don't have to keep taking things away from your life to Ironically be "less" so we stop feeling less than.
For my own sanity & health I couldn't have or didn't want to
*Eat less calories (which at this point to stay that lean I'd have had to) *I didnt want to lose more time by doing more in the gym. *I didnt want to lose more strength & muscle. *I didn't wana lose focus on other areas of my life
Just so there could be less of me.🤔
What if you started adding things IN to your life rather than taking them away. *Add more calories so you have energy to do more? *Add more weight to the bar so u build more muscle. *Add more structure to your program so u actually spend less time in the gym. *Add more focus to other things in your life cos u are spending less time in the gym.
*Add more carbs cos u use them efficiently in the gym. *Add more glute training & shoulder width so your waist looks the same (roughly) as when it was smaller (which was hard to sustain for more than a day)
*Add more water, more steps, more general activity. *Add more fun & love. *Add more fat so your horemones do the job & u have a period.
There is so much u can ADD to this lifestyle to make it work for u, & enable progress. People say "ah well ur a trainer, it's ur life u spend all is time in gym & being strict. He'll no H20!
You don't need to do as much as u think, jus different to what u assume.

The way we perceive our journey, by focusing on always trying to be less, always trying to take away... it gets draining & it stalls progress. Theres only so little cals n only so much exercise u can do? Where do you go from There?
Eat, train smart, grow, love & nourish. This lifestyle should add & enhance your life,not take away from it!
