ONE YEAR OF CONSISTENCY 🏋🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is me at various stages of my training in 2018. At the beginning of the year I was doing strength training and hiit but had no specific goals in mind and my macros were difficult to stick to and not in line with my training. As the year went on I set myself some clear goals, started educating myself more on nutrition and worked with some fantastic coaches who helped me get to the leanest I’ve ever been (in October) and the strongest I’ve ever been (in December). I’ve loved the process and learned so much along the way, the biggest thing being always have an open mind and trust the process! Apart from that, here are my biggest take aways from 2018: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ GOALS are important! How can you progress if you don’t know what you’re aiming for? Think about where you want to be in 3 months, 6 months, 12 months. Write it down and work towards those goals every damn day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ CONSISTENCY is key. What you do every day is what matters the most. Rome wasn’t built in a day and all progress takes time. Be patient and keep working hard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ NUTRITION is key. But it doesn’t need to be complicated. Being in a calorie deficit means you’ll lose weight and being in a surplus means you’ll gain. Your macro breakdown (high fat or high carb) merely determines how you feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ FOOD is fuel and you need to be in a calorie surplus to built muscle. (I kinda wish I’d learned this one sooner after seeing the progress I made after just two months in a massive surplus!😂) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What have you learned this year? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
