Evening! Today brings around day 9 of this 30 day mind and body challenge.
This evening I went to dinner with Melbourne Victory at the Football Federation Victoria Gold Medal Dinner. It’s a smaller version of what the AFL call the Brownlow Medal. I took the day off as a long weekend, to get myself looking all pretty and things for the evening. Got my hair curled, makeup done and wore this amazing dress. I felt pretty.
Today was all about visualizing your dreams and goals again but this time as a whole and not just about your body. Where do you want to do in life; what do you want to do; do you have term goals that you are currently working towards?
What is my greatest dream? This one was so easy for me, I could say it in my sleep!
I want to attend the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Dream BIG! You never know how far you can go until you try.
So that’s the end goal. What’s the plan? I’m still working on it.. However, I have now completed my Event Management Diploma, I’ve been volunteering non-stop with major sporting clubs like Melbourne Victory and I just need 1 person to believe in me enough to give me a go in a different career.
This is a huge long-term goal – 6 years from now. I have no idea what I am doing next week but hopefully, it’s something that will make this dream a little bit closer and a little more real.
#Footballisforever. As I have said many many times, football is my freedom and I will stop at nothing to get where I want to be. What are your biggest hopes, dreams and goals?Think about that.
Today our challenge was visualize what we wanted to achieve in this challenge and beyond. If you don’t have dreams and aspirations, you will struggle to move forward in life. It’s that simple. Everyone has dreams. Whether it’s to have the perfect job, perfect husband or perfect abs.
Today it was all about the abs for me. The rest of my body is shaping up real nice! (Even if I do say so myself) I want them and I know how to achieve them. However, I currently am not committed enough in my eating to get them. It’s as simple as that. Abs are made in the kitchen and my kitchen ain’t making abs at the moment.
I’ve got to get my brain into some serious “game face” mode and think about food as fuel for my body and not just something for me to indulge in. I love food as much as the next person; I’m just not nourishing my body with the right food in order to achieve my goal. I’m working my ass off (literally!) and then I come home and destroy it by eating the wrong foods.
There aren’t no maybes, because maybes always mean no. There is no “I’ll try” because that’s indecisive and not committed. There is only “YES” and “I WILL”.
We are almost at a week of this 30 Day Challenge! Only 3 more weeks to go after tomorrow.
I am absolutely knackered from my PT session with Jade. I feel like I pushed hard and I got 3 PB’s which I’m happy about. I don’t have the brain capacity for a long post because I’m almost falling asleep typing this one.
Straight on to today’s daily task. It is to reflect on the week and to back and answer any questions people may have missed. Haven’t I been a good girl? Answering all the questions when I was supposed to. However, what do I have to reflect on? I’ve smashed a few PB’s this week. I have a loving family and friends who I adore. My work is giving me life experience and I’ve eaten relatively clean.
I also have the fact that I put up barriers to stop myself succeeding. Isn’t this ridiculous? I know it is and it’s something I need to change asap. I don’t mention it all the time because I have been able to knock them down a few times but not enough to make a habit. That’s a new challenge for me and in the next 30 days, I will have more success than I have barriers.
Today was ‘Return of the food day’! My morning cuppa and binge watching of Orange Is The New Black with breakfast was amazing. I also went out for lunch with #boyfie and my mother in law which was really nice. I had zucchini and corn fritters with bacon. They were amazing!!
On to today’s daily challenge. What am I grateful for?
I’m grateful for a lot of things. Grateful I have a supportive family who loves me. Grateful for the most amazing #boyfie and his family who I adore. Grateful for my friends who see value in our relationships to be friends into the first place.
Not to go serious deep thinking but above all else, I’m grateful I live in a country where I can walk down the street alone and feel safe or wear a bikini to the beach and feel comfortable. We as Australians live in the best country in the world and I think we sometimes take that for granted. As a proud Australian, I am grateful for my Grandpa fighting for our country and defending it’s honour to shape the way we are today. Thank you to everyone else’s grandpas, mums and dads, sons and daughters who fought and still fight for the rest of us. You have our upmost respect for all that you do
