I am always excited for October 😉 It is Josh and my birth month after all ha ha. This is going to be a super busy month. Between moving, unpacking, getting settled into a new city, and contest prep, things should get interesting!!! I am ready to set some new goals and see what progress can be made in the next month. Let’s get these goals posted!
Goal One~ Get Moved, Unpacked, And Settled Into The New Place. This goal should be fairly easy, considering I am use to the process ha ha. I am in love with the new apartment, so getting settled in quickly, I am sure won’t be an issue. Josh and I have been discussing decor for weeks. The apartments are just stunning to say the least! 4 more days and counting….
Goal Two~ Join A Gym. Moving always means researching new gyms in the area. This actually was part of the deciding factor on our apartment. We decided to sell Josh’s car. It had more issues than we wanted to deal with. Here in Salt Lake, it is easy to go down to one car, because of the metro. In Vegas, not so much. So we made sure the apartment we chose was in a nice area and very close to a gym. We also wanted to find a gym that Zoe will have fun at. Being home schooled, we know that there are not always a ton of kids at the gym during the times I go. making sure that they have programs and things for her to do and keep her excited to go to the gym. We chose Las Vegas Athletic Clubs. They have a ton of locations in Vegas and one within minutes walking distance from the apartment. Bonus, they have a huge indoor playground in the daycare. Zoe saw the pics of it and was like “yep, that is the one!”
Goal Three~ Get Enrolled For My CPT. As soon as we arrive, I will get enrolled in my classes to earn my CPT. This is not only a way to help support my family, but also give back in God’s name. After all, all income we earn belongs to him! Helping people is what I am about. Working with the fitness industry the past few years made me realize my calling and what I truly want to do> Plus, it gives me the opportunity to continue to work from home and raise my daughter. I am excited and feel really blessed for the new opportunity!!!
Goal Four~ Enjoy Our Birthdays. Originally, my competition fell on my birthday and 3 days before Josh’s. We had planned to celebrate right after. Obviously with the move, things have changed. I will still be in prep for my birthday, but am hopeful that I will be able to have my refeed on that day, so I can enjoy a piece of cake to celebrate 😉
Goal Five~ Get Ready To Compete! This means buy all of the last of the supplies I need, make my backstage list, get my entry forms in, get Josh’ and Zoe’s tickets bought, and make the game plan on what time he will drop me off and pick up for pre-judging and the show. I am very excited about competing in the Las Vegas Classic. I think it will be an awesome opportunity! I am competing in Figure Open and Masters 35+ The ladies in the West bring in a much leaner package than the Midwest, so I have definitely had to up my game as far as what I am bringing to the stage. I am just over 5 weeks out, and I feel more than ready!!!
Goal Six~ Get Your Pose On. My posing was my weakest asset last year. Crazy to think, when I went into the competition, I felt confident in my posing. After looking at my pics, I realized how far I really needed to go. I was WAY off the mark!!! At this point, my posing looks awesome. I just need a few more tweaks to my back pose. I work on it daily. Some days twice a day. It is MUCH harder and more technical than it looks. Many make it look so easy. You think you are nailing the poses like the pros, then someone takes a pic or video and you are like wait… what am I doing???? It is like I always say, i am on a continuous learning curve. I learn something new everyday. Posing is an art and I am perfecting my craft as much as I can! Note to the ladies who want to compete: you may be worried about how lean you come in, or how much muscle you have. You may already have the ultimate package, but if you can not display your hard work properly, someone else will be walking away with number 1. I am bringing the best physique I can and I will be displaying it properly this year!
Goal Seven~ Pump Up That Confidence Level. This is something I have been working on a lot since my last competition. Losing all the weight did boost my confidence, but I was still lacking when I was up on that stage. Still timid, still unsure of myself. I can honestly say, this year i am a different person. I have studied, I feel more educated in the sport and the industry, most importantly, I believe in myself!!!! I have already had many who have noticed the change. This year, I have what i call my strut down ha ha I know I am something special and you will see it on stage this year!!!!
Goal Eight~ Figure Out When Zoe Is Starting School. We are still undecided. I tried to call her online school about registering her in Vegas. they told me to call them once we get there lol, so I guess I will wait another week then. It’s like I said yesterday, if she starts this year, great! If not, that is fine too!!! I started at age 6 and turned out just fine 😉
Goal Nine~ Get Out And Explore. This is always our favorite part of moving to a new city! Josh and Zoe have never been to Vegas. It’s been years since I have been there and to be honest, I was drunk the whole time and never left the strip. It was the old me who went to Vegas. So going back with a different lifestyle/mindset, with different people, looking for different experiences should be an awesome time! We are very excited about all of the activities they have there!
Goal Ten~ Relax And Enjoy Life. Not gonna lie, this past year has been crazy! We have had some really high times, some really low times, but nothing in between ha ha. Learning with every circumstance. We are hopeful that once in Vegas we either have some high times, and or some mellow times. I need some time to just rest with my thoughts and enjoy the life that surrounds me. We have been so caught up in our financial situation, cars, moving, and training. Life has been chaotic and stressful. If we can take a day or two this month to just relax and enjoy, that would be a huge blessing!!!
Hope you all have your list of goals ready! Write things out and post them somewhere to keep yourself accountable! This life is yours for the taking!!!! get out there and make those dreams come true!!!
