My Mindset Moving Forward:
Moving forward, I am thrilled to begin this new adventure and to create an unimaginable, yet achievable shape in my physique, performance and lifestyle. I stand by every single 'physique goal' detail that I laid out in Vlog #1, but with my new competitive Figure Physique vision, I will expand my knowledge as much as possible and will keep discovering MORE & BETTER strategies for muscle growth, healthy hormones and success in this sport. Besides Cellercising, breathwork will definitely play a role, as well as strategic diet and deep tissue (self provided) massage. For my mindset, I will stay crystal clear on what's most important:
Faith & Focus. Which is more important? They are EQUAL. The more faith I put out into the Universe, the more wisdom, knowledge and focus I receive. The more I focus on the ultimate goal and prize, the more I believe in myself.
