What the heck was I thinking?

2.5 weeks out to the biggest competition I’ve competed in
The WBFF worlds for everything, the title of all tiles Queen Bee “World Bikini Pro” .
Why the f bomb do I do this to myself sometimes is what I think a lot these days
Taking on a business, launching my Strapt pants , having posing clients, my actual job as a medical esthetician oh & bellydance gigs, photoshoots , and the biggest of all training for WBFF Worlds
Insert your crazy. Seriously though I look at others in my life, my cousin for example ; 4 kids, trainer, wife , business owner and she’s always learning something new . There are other crazy people out there lol guess it runs in the family .
Im not bad on prep if you’ve never done a fitness competition then you might not know what I’m talking about. Definitely the last month is generally hard on people, hormones sleep, focus this is generally pretty tough the last month. My poor husband I’ve put him through now three shows in the last year
I’m not too bad but the last few weeks I have definitely been on edge I’m way more annoyed at everyone which is not like me, I have a short temper
And I forget a lot. Putting your body in extremes which I know I do can do this to you. Why do you do this to yourself maybe you’re asking? It is a mental game on a lot of levels physically and emotionally but to me it is also the greatest feeling of accomplishment to know that I can mentally and physically get through anything.
So being on prep I have to write tasks for myself to do and keep my time management on check so here is what I’m going to share with you guys of what I’ve been doing.
Time management
what I’ve been doing lately – Social media a double edged sword – Amazing in so many great ways, especially for me if it wasn’t for it I wouldn’t be where I am. I mean it’s free advertising and can reach millions it’s unreal BUT.. but it can be a sucker a time sucker and mentally mess with ya
It’s so easily to compare yourself to others and look at other peoples lifestyles and get down on yourself, which is ridiculous but we’re human and that’s what people usually do. So..
I try and limit my social media to increments of 15 minutes at a time. That even sounds like a lot however you can blow through 15 minutes pretty damn quickly if you’re not aware of it. So set a timer on your phone. If you don’t make messages those messages will be there in a few hours when you check it again.
I don’t have Netflix I know I’m probably one of the only people you know that doesn’t have Netflix so I don’t watch much TV at all if I do it’s usually Sportsnet to keep up with what’s going on in the sports world or an old episode of friends or everybody loves Raymond LOL so again limit your time watching TV and YouTube.
I write a task list every day of things I want to get done, if they do not get finished then I simply add it to the next day. I try not to overwhelm my days especially right now too much in one day no good .
Texting- Pretty much how everyone lives now. nobody use the phone anymore LOL however I do find it it’s way easier just to phone a person then it is to have a long drawn out text that really I can’t do anything because you’re stuck on your phone typing it out with your fingers.
Therefor when you can be multitasking while talking on the phone. Shows you my age as I was kid growing up in the 90s we didn’t text we phoned our friends.
Affirmations – write it down say it out loud believe in yourself! Positive affirmations equals positive outcomes.
So the last couple weeks bear with me, if I don’t get back to you please don’t take it personally I will be back to you
When I’m home from World with my giant crown that is my 100 focus right now
Hugs to you all!
