When I was at the gym today I was thinking about the importance of not only our thoughts, but also the thoughts of those we surround ourselves with. Be careful how you think because it becomes who you are! This can be hard to do, especially during prep. It can be an emotional roller coaster of a ride, as anyone who lives with a competitor would know! Try your best to think realistic and positive thoughts! Also surround yourself with like minded people who want to help you achieve your goals! If people don't support your dreams, they have no place in your life. I am so lucky and grateful to have awesome friends who are my fitness inspirations and workout partners, family and boyfriend that support this unique lifestyle and me!
