Not bad for a carb up and Christmas day. Carbs were oats, sugar free jam, sugar free ice cream, apple, sweet potato, a small chocolate, flavoured rice cakes and a WHITE bread roll at dinner last night. Targets were 1800 calories, 40g fat, 135g protein and 225g carbs so I did rather well I think.

Change your Beliefs
I have always believed that being lean and muscled took hard work - watching what I ate and training hard in the gym. But I am thinking I can change those beliefs.
Of course I still need to eat healthy nutritious food in appropriate amounts and constantly overload my muscles for growth, but what if I believed it came easily?
Instead of thinking that I am not genetically designed to be an athlete and that I have a difficult time getting and staying lean, I am changing my beliefs from today.
Before: I have to fight every day to create and maintain the body I want
After: It is natural and normal to function as an athlete. I live a charmed life and health and fitness are part of my nature.
Before: I have to choose to be 'good' and miss out on delicious treats
After: Food is fuel and every thing I put into my body is transformed into the cells and tissues that I live within. I have respect for the body I have been blessed with and honour it with life-giving fuel.
Before: Hunger and pain are uncomfortable
After: Hunger is my body melting away my fat stores and pain is my muscles growing and strengthening. This is how I was designed to function. It is normal for me to experience these sensations which are simply a part of life.
What are some of the things you believe that make this journey difficult that could be made easier by simply changing your perspective?
