I get asked how to stay motivated. To be honest it’s my most hated question. Asking someone for help, is different to asking someone to “motivate you”. It’s so subjective to the individual and if you really expect me to list off A B and C in WHY you should get your ass up and start working on your health, I’m not about that. I don’t believe in acquiring motivation as such, I believe in work ethic. You either want to work hard or you don’t.
Today I trained at 5am, did some cardio, edited a clients photos, worked a 10.5 hour shift of work, stuck to my meals and probably going to go back to gym. This is my day, sometimes I do more tbh. I’m not “constantly motivated”, this is just me. I’m so sick of people complaining. I had no one to blame but myself when I was stuck binge eating my anxiety away. Did I reach out and ask someone to motivate me to stop? Hell no. I worked my ass off to change because I wanted to change. I’m not even in prep but I get up every day at 4am to make sure I get my training in. Guess what my prep was like?
2 hours or more training at 4am.
Then a 10.5 hour day nursing.
Finishing with cardio and posing at night.
I did this for 5 months.
Not to mention photography clients on my days off and editing or working on content in my lunch breaks. I prepped my own meals, I didn’t have a sponsored meal prep company doing all that for me during prep, I support myself financially and I live out of home. I drained myself. But I got it done.
I know I’ll win one day, go pro, do whatever my heart sets out to do because I never let myself be held back by anything. Call me honest call me sure of myself call me whatever you wish, but the best damn thing that’s happened to me is anxiety because I will never be held back or stop until I’m done. 🎤⤵️
