Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to wake my ass up and get out of bed at 4am, go to the gym and kill my workouts with no pre-workout, and carry about my day with enough energy until 10pm on a restricted diet, smiling at people and socializing at work while everyone eats sweet treats and other goodies I can’t enjoy 😦
I have to CONSTANTLY remind myself why I am doing this, and literally visualize the goals I want to achieve. I created a ‘Motivation Board’ to help me get through tough days and remind me that I’m on a tough journey, but like they say, if it weren’t hard as fuck then EVERYBODY would be doing it.
I have my progress picture in there next to some of the greatest of the greats, all of my top fitness role models and I say to myself, “Hell yeah, you’re getting there! Slowly but surely, stick with it!” I WILL achieve great things. Humble small beginnings…… It’s a journey.
