So far I’ve shared workouts, motivation, food, photos and mostly kept it light and fun. I’ve yet to touch on the most important aspect of training for competition and that’s the psychological factor. The mental game.
When you have training twice a day, strictly adhering to portion sizes and specific types of food and making sure you get 8 hours of quality sleep day in and day out. It really tests your mental strength and having a support network is more than vital.
I have always been one to train hard and regularly. Eat well and the art of a magic nights rest is still in the pre-production stages but having experienced the last 4 months getting ready for comp has blown everything I’ve done previously out of the water. I know that no matter what happens here everything about my persona is stronger. Physically and mentally hands down.
I found an article from a female body builder who puts everything into easy perspective for anyone looking in.
Instead of my friends and family thinking I’ve turned into an anti-social hibernating bear….when actually Im this gypsy phoenix that runs amuck constantly. Its been a very life altering task!!
And this I found and thought was appropriate 3 weeks out!
Ready to rock’n roll baby!
