Fitness & Bikini model tips – it’s not just your posing you need to practice
Love this post from Ingrid Barclay – a reminder that’s it’s not just about practicing you’re posing but also practising your thought patterns.

Final suggestions to help you identify and change your current thought patterns and behaviours that are not conducive to fat loss success. They are designed to heighten your awareness and give you a few tools to try which may facilitate your reaching your goals.
8. Know your limits, but be determined to reach them. A safe and sensible body fat loss is 0.5% per week, 2% is not! 25 minutes of intense cardio, 3 times per week is realistic; running a marathon next month is not. Remember, a healthy body comes from healthy eating and exercising to keep you running smoothly and efficiently. If you over-train or under-eat, you risk injury and “binge” eating behaviours. Be realistic with yourself, but push yourself hard enough to feel pride in the process.
9. Be Supportive, Not Critical, or yourself. People lose fat at different rates. Weight may drop off quickly at first and then plateau, or vice versa. Your body composition may change, although your weight may stay the same. The important thing is that long-term healthy behaviour gets results. Reassure yourself that you are working hard and remember that hard work pays off. Don’t judge your progress by your weight; instead, acknowledge that during the day or week you engaged in behaviours that will be rewarded down the road.
10. Reward your behaviour and not your weight. You are probably used to rewarding yourself and being rewarded by others for losing kilograms, rather than for altering your behaviour. Create a system of rewards for the positive changes you make, rather than the numbers you see on the scale. Make your rewards based on your ability to stick to your goals, and on your changes in thought. When you are able to go through an entire day without self-defeating thoughts, you deserve a reward.
All in all, it is important to remember that your thoughts guide you to action, whether they are positive or negative. If you are self-depreciating in thought, your behaviours will be unproductive, and you will become discouraged easily. If, on the other hand, you acknowledge small accomplishments: more positive self-talk, increased activity, eating more nutritionally balanced meals, feeling healthier, feeling stronger, then your behaviours will reflect that. You will be more encouraged to continue exercising, you will find it easier to resist food temptations, and you will gain self-esteem—not because you are losing weight, but because you are managing your life and your body in a way that is responsible and worthy of praise—and the fat loss that follows will be but a side effect of the behaviours in which you engage. I wish you every bit of “luck” in the world and hope these strategies really help FIO girls. xxx
