How To Find Your Motivation & Strengthen Your Booty At The Same Time

How to find your motivation AND strengthen your booty AT THE SAME TIME without ending up overwhelmed or needing more time in the day.

Plus WHY most women fail at getting & staying on track and what you need to do instead.

There comes a time in a women's life where:

  1. Her motivation goes missing
  2. Her bum needs lifting
  3. She starts getting pains in her knees, hips &/or lower back

Let's discuss #1.. 

A lack of motivation seems to be a HUGE problem for A LOT of women right now.

The thing is.. most women fail to get & stay on track for the same reason most people fail to stick to their New Years Resolutions..

They try to do everything & change everything at the same time!

  • Cut out carbs.. check
  • Start latest diet fad.. check
  • Workout every day.. check
  • Drink more water.. check
  • Stretch more.. check
  • Cut out alcohol.. check
  • Cut out sugar.. check
  • Count every single calorie.. check
  • Go to sleep earlier.. check
  • Wake up earlier.. check
  • Watch less TV
  • Start a new hobby

They are literally trying to spin 10 plates before they even learn how to spin 1..

THAT is why they might spin for a short time, but then they all come crashing down.. and then spinning plates becomes IMPOSSIBLE or TOO HARD in their mind.

The other problem is that people expect motivation to just come, wake up one day & appear like magic.

So how do you find your motivation?

MOTIVATION COMES FROM BUILDING MOMENTUM

BUILDING MOMENTUM COMES FROM TAKING CONSISTENT SMALL ACTIONS

Okay, let's move on to #2.

Who doesn't want a strong, perky, lifted bum? Especially as the effects of gravity & muscle loss start to take effect after 28 ish.

Enough said.

Moving onto #3..

Those pains that start to appear in the knees, hips & lower back either on their own or by an unfortunate injury.. guess the main reason why they start to creep up?

LAZY ARSE GLUTES (aka bum muscles)

That's right, your arse is LITERALLY lazy.

The glutes are some of the strongest muscles in the body & they are also the laziest therefore some of the weakest.

Lazy or weak butt muscles are usually caused by:

  • Sitting down too much due to our sedentary & convenient modern lifestyle
  • Not activating them properly before a workout
  • Not using them correctly during a workout

I train with weights A LOT, so you probably think I'm strong, fit & pain free.

Well if you thought that, you'd be wrong!

I have a hip impingement.. (which thankfully is MUCH better now due to focusing on strengthening & using my glutes properly)

But this was the result of years of squatting with NOT activating my glutes & NOT using them properly during the movement.

The good news??

You DON'T need to train with heavy weights or intimidating equipment to strengthen your booty & fix or prevent knee, hip or back pains.

I fixed my hip pains by using small, glute focused, bodyweight exercises..

The exact exercises I've put into this 31 Day Strong & Bootyful Motivation Challenge to not only help you fix or prevent pains but also help you build momentum to find your motivation.

Motivation AND a stronger booty in 31 days!

Two birds one stone.. sounds good right?

Remember.. you MUST build MOMENTUM to find your MOTIVATION.

Which means, taking action every day is key. This can be difficult to do without ACCOUNTABILITY.

So get a friend involved, post your intentions on social media, make your goals public.. do whatever you have to do.

Just don't be the person who says they want to be motivated or to have a nice, strong bum but then do NOTHING!

TAKE ACTION > BUILD MOMENTUM > FIND MOTIVATION > ACHIEVE RESULTS!

Is Your Workout Making You Fat?

Is Your Workout Making You Fat?

You're desperate to lose weight and nothing is working..

So you start spending longer in the gym and more hours doing cardio.

After a gruelling 2 hour workout hopping from machine to machine (because you don't really know what else to do)..

You get out of bed the next morning excited and feeling confident that you had LITERALLY worked your butt off the day before.

You jump on the scales and there's absolutely NO CHANGE. Nada!!

11 Ways To Stay Motivated This Winter

11 Ways To Stay Motivated This Winter

1. Set yourself a winter goal

Sometimes the most powerful thing to light that internal fire is to have a deadline or goal to achieve. Whether that be to lose some weight before Christmas to make up for the extra pounds most of us will put on or to enter yourself into a marathon or obstacle run, sit down with your calendar and lay out a training regime for an upcoming end date.

2. Find an accountabilibuddy

Enlist a friend or family member to join you in your winter workout goals and schedule your workouts as you would an important meeting, it works both ways.. you won't want to let each other down and you will hold each other accountable for sticking to the plan. Support and accountability can be key.

3. Announce your determination

7 Tips to Fire Up Fat Loss

7 Tips to Fire Up Fat Loss

1. Follow the 80:20 rule

Eat clean 80% of the time and treat yourself for the other 20%. I like to save my 20% indulgences for eating out with friends and family or when I’m having a craving. The aim is to eat clean, nutritious foods like lean protein, vegetables, fruits, wholegrains and healthy fats most of the time and don’t feel guilty about enjoying your favourite ‘unhealthy’ foods every now and then. One unhealthy meal is not going to make you fat, just like one healthy meal is not going to make you lean.

I have created a cleaner eating grocery list as a guide for choosing proteins, carbs, fats and vegetables to help you create healthy, nutritious meals.
