Do you sit in silence and tune into the messages of your soul? Often we look elsewhere for answers that are truly within ourselves. Do you take time in meditation or yoga nidra to listen? Do you spend time in introspection or contemplation? Often we fear what we will discover so we avoid doing so. We have so many reasons why we don’t have time.
As difficult as it may seem, tuning into ourselves is one of the steps to happy life. Listening to the messages within will help guide us to our happiness because it will teach us what is acceptable and what is not. What we are ok with and what we are not ok with.
Will you tune in?
Dolomite – to help you be more generous to yourself.
Citrine – to support your self esteem when searching for answers within.
Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now. What we value, and what we believe in, is at the heart of belonging. Self-exploration can be a scary journey but it is an essential one. This weekend, ask yourself some hard questions; what are your values?
"You have to be willing to dig deep within yourself and bring out the best effort that you can."
Heard this from the trainer in my workout this morning and it really hit me. Isn't that true about everything you want in life? Jobs, relationships, fitness?
I was scared of this workout program. Just being honest! I almost didn't buy it...but then I thought, what is the worst thing that can happen? I just do the exercises I can and modify the rest? Let's be real. Exercise is hard. That is why so many people don't do it. But every time you do something hard and get through it? Life is SO much sweeter.
Here I am, almost a full four weeks of this program under my belt. Me. The girl who was always picked last for the teams in school, the girl who avoided exercise like the plague. I am stronger. I am feeling great.
If I can do this, YOU can do this.
You just have to dig deep and make the choice to be your best you.

Bodybuilding! What I have learnt so far during my preparation. I did compete earlier in the year but it was my version of a prep without a coach. Being apart of a proper competition preparation, you have to be prepared in many many ways if you want to take this journey on. The following is my order of importance.
1. Mentally Ready: taking the next step and pushing your body to the limits, requires you to constantly dig deep into your mental motivational thoughts, memories, past experiences and future visions to give you the drive to push past limits you thought you were not capable of. Especially when you train alone these are key factors.
2. Nutrition would come second, because you need the mental mind state to commit to the nutrition plan, correct nutrition allows your body to transition from one phase to another each week.
3.Physical Conditioning: Putting the required work, intensity and effort in the gym. 4. Time management and the ability to adapt this is in regards to working a full time job. Sometimes you finish later but this can't put you off your training you still have to follow the plan work it into your schedule. In addition to the above a strong support system from your loved ones, family and friends keeps you going and motivated when you find it gets a bit over whelming at times. .
