Do you make you a priority or do you tend to put yourself last?
Most likely, the latter is your answer. It's so common to put yourself last thinking if I put myself first, that is being selfish...
This week I want you to consider this powerful mantra- all about making you a priority FIRST.
Before you do anything else, you must make you #1. Feeling a little frustrated with your lack of motivation or like you are back to not making yourself a priority... remember the ONLY way to get back on is to just make you #1.
With the holidays approaching quickly, I know how easy it is to be pulled in a million different direction and find it harder to commit to you but remember... doing YOU (first) is the most SELFLESS thing you can do. If you found yourself giving up a little bit of that non-negotiable you time, it is okay, it is time to turn it around TODAY.
It is so common to think you have to give first and how "selfish" to put yourself first but really it is the BEST thing and...

LESS IS MORE, do you believe me yet?
I wanted to further explain... to get away with less, means you have to give ALL of you to the little time you do have.
If all you have is 10 minutes to nail a workout, that is you need! You can get the best workout done in 10 minutes when you workout for purpose and give ALL OF YOU!
You can make the most out of the little time you have when you focus on fully connecting with the muscles you are working, remove any and all distractions (phone goes on airplane mode) and picking up your intensity.
Let’s talk about HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). A HIIT routine, whether it’s 4-minutes or 30 minutes, a HIIT circuit will get your heart-pumping and set your metabolism on fire.
Different than spending time doing slow-steady state workouts, HIIT or G-Fit circuit workouts make you sweat and burn more fat effectively.
Give this 10 minute Tabata style workout a try and tell me how you feel when...
It seems counterintuitive, but scaling back on your workouts can make them so much more effective and therefore lead to greater results.
Let me share with you why my Less is More approach really works…
Hardcore exercise and I had a good run. For a solid 6 years, I was killing myself- while all for good reasons. I was on a mission to be the best version of me and compete as a top professional figure competitor.
My routine, while I was in prep was seven days a week of strength training + cardio, totaling about 3 hours a day.
While I was in prep, I didn’t deviate from this because it fit my current blueprint and I was on a mission.
I was 100% in the zone or what I like to call flow state.
I had energy, confidence, and strength . Not only did I feel physically strong but my mental game was on fire. This zone (what I would call insanity now) helped me to not only reach my goals but to function in my daily life successfully....
Do you believe that you have to KILL yourself to get results? Do you believe that if you can't spend countless hours in the day working out than, what's the point?
That use to be me, thought in order to get results and KEEP THEM, I had do the same LONG workouts I use to do as a competitor. Then motherhood changed it all for me... I was forced to adopt a new mindset and one that would completely change my philosophy forever!
In honor of kicking off October with all Tabata workouts- quick and efficient- get the job done in less than 10 minutes MAX, I thought I would dig into my philosophy "Less is More" with everyone and hope that you can entertain this thought for a moment and see this can be a game changer in your life! Possibly the ONE thing that can take you from frustration to FREEDOM.
Listen to this weeks Mantra below. I would love to hear what you think!
