You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

I am my own worst enemy.  Yes.  There. I said it!

And all of you who are nodding your head saying "I told you so" well….I'm finally admitting it : )

Many new friends have been hitting it right on the money when it comes to my feelings, my personal inner voice and I have decided that if was finally time to let go. Let go of the negativity with my attitude towards the competition, towards my diet and towards the negative energies I have let stay in my life for far too long.

I'm taking myself back and channelling all that time spent on negativity towards positivity (ok yes I sound like a bad magnet but bear with me : ) ) I am shedding that negativity, clearing out closets, dumping things that make me feel bad. Whether its clothes, food, emails, texts, thoughts, people. Out the window you go (some mentally and others literally)!

This past week has been a week of learning life lessons. I refuse to let myself get in the way of realising my potential and my goals. I am going to kill the next 29 days with this crazy ass diet. I am going to kill my workouts no matter how tired I am feeling and more importantly I am going to focus on the positives of where I am rather than the negatives.

I 100% believe in visualising and I can see myself rocking that stage, kicking my fears aside and letting the best possible me shine.

#1. I am doing something that makes me happy! I love training and I love pushing myself to a goal I once though was unattainable.
#2. I AM WORTH IT. Though there have been some obstacles along the way, I have found a great community of friends and family who are there to support me and help me realise my potential how wonderful is that?
#3. I am not letting fear get the best of me. Fear of the competition itself, fear of being on stage, fear of post competition weight gain NONE OF IT. I am going to work at one goal at a time and come post competition, I am going to work hard at looking at food in a positive way and not binge eat. Learn to enjoy food and work with a coach who understands.

SO in closing I am saying goodbye to the old me and all that kept her down and saying hello to the new Nini who has so much potential and is not going to let anything get in her way.

Aloha.

  2. shed the negativiaty!!!!! yes yes yes!!! i modeled in swimsuits yesterday for my shop and i most certainly do not work out! hahahah!!! it's all about how you look at it.  you are beautiful!

    and one little hint about being on stage (i'm in a band) the more confident you feel before you go on, the better you will do. i sit in the venue and say over and over again to myself: you are the coolest person in here.... (i know it sounds so silly! haha) but perception is reality! so, just psych yourself up and keep saying you're the best person in the room!!!

  7. I think we're all our own worst enemy at times- no matter how badly we want something in the long term, in the short term it's hard to really want to put in all of the effort and feel positive about it all the time. Good for you for recognising that and moving forward. Good luck with the next twenty-nine days!

  10. Way to go girl! Loving the new attitude! Sometimes you just need to start fresh :) This reminds me of a quote/catch phrase from "HellCats"-- "Positive outcomes only!!"

  11. Good for you! An emotional "spring clean" is always good for the soul...give you perspective and helps you to shed the negativity that sometimes get's piled up in one's life...good luck and enjoy the "new" you (although the old was pretty fabulous as far as I can tell :-)

  24. That a girl Nini. I like this post better than the "old you" worrying about eating too many condiments. You put your work in, and you eat well. You've made up your mind and you're keeping your baby. Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever. This is week 1 of me trying to shed the 12 lbs Ive gained since December! Its now or never.

  27. It makes me so happy to read this post! You are awesome and you the next 29 days are going to be the most amazing days.  Some days, when the training and the diet feel overwhelming, you just have to be a robot.  Just get it done....you will always feel better for it.  The day of your show is going to be one of the proudest days of your life because you will know how hard you have worked! Keep pushin' and TRUST THE PROCESS!
