Well it’s been a while since I’ve blogged! I used to do it all the time. Love it! Although as the years have gone on and I’ve gone from just loving my fitness to running a fitness business, I just lost my mojo. I suppose I started to worry about what to write, what not to write instead of just rambling on like I used to.
So here goes! The start of my fitness ramblings!
At the moment I’ve been on a bit of a mission. I’m about to turn 40 and for some reason it feels like a big deal. I suppose I finally feel like I’m getting older, ha, ha. I’m not sure why it’s the big 40 that’s made me think like this but it just feels like I should be more sensible or something (never!). Anyway, for my 40th I had all these grand plans, big trips with my girlfriends, parties and so much more, although as the time has approached I realised none of it was going to happen.
Cam & I have been busily growing our Fitness Business and working our butts off, although it’s meant not as much time freedom as we’d like and at the moment we’re not in a position to leave it all and go on a holiday for a few weeks! So I had to dig deep and really think about what did I want for my 40th and for the past 5 years I’ve been wanting to re-enter the Oxygen Covergirl competition. 5 years ago I entered 7 months after having Brady and was a Top 10 Finalist. It was the best feeling in the world. Then for the last 5 years EVERY year I’ve been saying I’m going to enter and every year I haven’t. So this year regardless of what shape I’m in, I’m doing it.
I’ve booked in some photos with the awesome Dallas Olsen, husband to the lady who is my Fitness Inspiration – Lindy Olsen, as a bit of a Birthday treat. Since then I’ve been consistent, although far from perfect with my nutrition and training. I suppose I’m at a point in my life where I like to maintain some form of balance, so the thought of giving up all treats or being all consumed and obsessive isn’t really an option anymore.
So with just over 2 weeks to go it’s time to dig deep and give it my all. My goal out of this isn’t to win anything but to do something I’ve said I was going to do for years and to feel as good as I can at 40! I may not be as lean as I could be but I do feel proud I maintain a decent level of fitness and enjoy life in the process.
It’s taken me weeks to write this as I was embarrassed as I didn’t want people to judge where I was at as this really is about me and I just want to feel good about what I’ve achieved. I suppose coming into 40 I’m slowly starting to worry less about what people think and instead focus on what makes me feel great.
So here I am with only a couple of weeks to go and it’s time to CONSTANTLY remind myself why I’m doing this. I’m doing this FOR ME! I want to feel great turning 40 and I want to do something I said I’d do for the past 5 years.
After writing this I’m not quite sure why it’s taken me so long as I know blogging and putting your goal out there can help get you the support you need.
If you have a goal you’re working towards I’d love to hear all about it! Also, remember we do have some private Facebook Groups you can jump in for that added bit of support.
Have an awesome day!
