Motivational Monday

"The cupcake you've been craving for an hour or the body you've always wanted? Remember its ALWAYS your choice".

I know better than anyone how hard it is to commit to goal and follow through with it. Especially when it comes to dieting and weightloss. Deciding to do a figure contest and then having to commit to such a strict diet for months can be grueling at times. The hardest times for Joshua I are when we have just worked out, our metabolism's are rev'ed up and we're passing tons of places to eat. Thinking of all the foods we would love to eat if only it were on our diets.... I mean we just worked out right? WRONG! This is where our will power kicks in and through trial & error we know what that food can do to us if we made the choice to eat it. We know how food affects our bodies and what most of that food is made out of isn't really good for anyone. Don't get me wrong, I've been known to obsess over birthday cake with butter creme frosting, Five Guys burger & fries, and when the hot light is on at Kripy Kreme.... Forget about it! But I also obsess over what it's going to be like when I step on stage looking my absolute best!!! That obsession trumps the urge to eat crap anyday. What I do is tell myself that red velvet cake will always be available but getting to that national level stage won't be. There is a deadline and I will meet it.

Just remember this week that every single time you eat, you have a choice. No one is forcing you to cheat on your diet and when you do cheat there is no excuse for YOUR choice....

Don't let that cupcake get in between you and the body you've always wanted!
Stay focused. Stay committed. Stay consistent.

Have a fit day!
