I’m A Yam Conqueror

I’m stepping out of my comfort zone with Fitness Blog World.

What are some areas you need to develop which requires you to step out of your comfort zone? How do you cope with doing this? What are the obstacles? Why is it important to you to do this?

There are a lot of obvious areas that I could focus on like cleaning eating, getting proper sleep, drinking water, giving workouts 100% focus; but I’m already acutely focussed on these things.

My mind needs to be developed.

Life doesn’t come with a Lazyboy and a beer fridge.

It comes with problems…lots and lots of problems.

Nobody really has it better than anyone else, no matter what we think.

A lot of competitors tend eat the same food all the time. We could probably make a 200 page cookbook that is comprised purely of yam recipes. Pancakes, waffles, mash, fries, muffins, dessert, cake, donuts…the list goes on and on and on!

The same is true with problems. We could list problems forever but at the end of the day, no matter how intricate, its just a yam.

When I encounter problems or feel overwhelmed, I want to revert to:

  • Playing small.
  • Getting sucked in by the ‘woe is me‘ mentality.
  • Deciding its too hard and give up.
  • Downplaying the things I am are fabulous at.
  • Being intimidated other women’s amazing qualities and feats.

No more. I am done with this. It is time to step out of the comfortable and known space called complacency.

I am a Yam Conqueror!

  • Today will be better than yesterday and tomorrow will be better than today.
  • I will see the best in others and speak life into who they have been created to be.
  • My mind will be stronger, leaner, and more determined than my competition.
  • I will say nice things to and about myself.
  • If I can’t say anything good, I will clamp my big, fat mouth shut.
  • Accepting compliments will be done with grace and gratitude.
  • When a stage comes my way, I will step into the light rather than tell people they have the wrong woman.

It takes guts to accept your greatness and not be afraid of it. It takes a strong and lean mind that trains every single day to be able to do the heavy lifting in life.

I train most of my muscles to failure. When a muscle fails while training it gets a signal that it needs to grow so that next time it can perform the task.

I will embrace my failures and know that I am growing into the leanest woman I can be, both inside and out.

What failures from today are you growing into strengths for tomorrow?

  1. Yeah – go big or go home! Be your most fabulous self. No more complacency or doubt. You’re on your way!

  2. Nobody really has it better than anyone else, no matter what we think. <– this is so true. We all have our own problems, and there will always be others who are far worse off than us.

    All we have to do is put our chin up and keep at life and trying to stay as positive as ever – as they say 'there's light at the end of the tunnel'


  3. I LOVE this post. It’s such an important reminder and I need to refer to it OFTEN. Thanks for this!

  4. I love your conquer the world attitude!

    I am doing the same for the fitness competition. Regardless of how I look next to the other women on stage. I know that I will have looked the best I can for me. A personal and INDIVIDUAL best. So hopefully everytime I want to compete my body will get better and better.

    Its about looking at the postiives within myself and what I have accomplished rather than the negatives!

  5. All of this is SO incredibly true. Especially not being intimidated by others and really recognizing your own feats and victories. Amen!!
