. . ♥️MY SECRETS TO LIVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE♥️ . . 3️⃣STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK . . We all want to be liked & appreciated for our talents. But we spend far too much time worrying about the thoughts & opinions of others. While you certantly don’t want to disrespect others, you are on this earth to live YOUR life; not theirs. . . When we start to rely on what other people think of us & we make their opinion pivotal to our success, we can get into trouble. We start tailoring our lives to fit the expectations of others & from there it's a vicious cycle. When we give over our power to others & allow that their impressions to become how we perceived, we lose out on who we really are. The only reality we can see is how we believe others see us. . . Here are 3️⃣sure-fire ways to eliminate the worry & free yourself to be yourself. 1️⃣Focus on what matters. When you concentrate on what's important, you think less about your individual role & more about the bigger picture. 2️⃣Most people aren't paying much attention. People spend more time thinking about themselves than thinking about others. If they're expressing an opinion about your life, it's probably not something they've given much thought to but just a passing thought 3️⃣Keep perspective. Another person's opinion is often based not on your beliefs & behavior but on theirs. What's good for them may be terrible for you, or vice versa. Be who you want to be from your own perspective. . . You must make a conscious effort to let go what other people think. It's a skill that needs to be practiced. But once you truly understand how to let go, you will see the world as entirely different. Today I leave to marry my best friend, with the people that I love more then anything, including 2 special women cara and Lindsay who are there in spirit! . .

. . 💓 SECRETS TO LIVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE💓 7am Talk . . 2️⃣SAY WHAT YOU MEAN! Do your words carry importance & honesty, along with kindness & care? There really is no need to be saying things that you don’t really mean & when you live a meaningful life you don’t feel the need to be fake. . . A meaningful life means that you know what is important to you & what is not. You choose to dedicate your life to what is important so you don’t need the approval of others. There is no need to be hurtful or offensive but you can easily communicate your disagreement in a polite & assertive manner. The great irony with this is that when you stop seeking the approval of others; you are far more likely win their approval. . . In addition have you ever notice how enjoyable conversation can be when you actually care about the subject manner? You get into deep discussion & time seems to fly. Your passion flows through you & you actually feel as though you have done something of value; just by having a chat. Of course, it is good to be able to make light conversation with people, but when you say what you mean & you discuss things which are important to you; your life take on a new level of meaning. . . If you are ready to SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, then comment with a ♥️♥️♥️♥️ I have butterflies already, as I will be exchanging my vows on Friday! . . Photography by @west_studio 📸📸📸
. . ♥️Secrets to Living a Meaningful Life♥️ 7am Talk . . It is easy to get caught up in the hustle & bustle of daily life. We rush from one task to another, desperately trying to get everything done. When we manage to step away from one area of our life; we step straight into a disorganized mess in another area. The reality is that there is always something to be done. But more importantely; we must realize that we can’t get everything done. . . So how do you decide what you need to do & what you must let go? The answer is to FOCUS on living a meaningful life. Thought the next week we will cover those SECRETS! . 1️⃣Clarify What You Value Most: 💓 Values are like rules for life. They determine what we are prepared to do & what we would never do. They also tell us what & who is most important to us. However, values are only as good as the effort we make to live by them. When we don’t live true to our values, we can experience a great deal of stress, disappointment & a life devoid of meaning. When we do live true to our values, we find it easier to remain happy; no matter what happens because we know we are making the right decisions & taking the right actions. . . TODAY, take sometime to identify your values & choose to live by them. My top value that I will bring into my marriage: TRUST! ⬇️Comment below⬇️ if you have a top value you are ready to make a focal point! . . . Photography by @allenlhgfx 📸📸📸📸

. . 🛑STOP MAKING EXCUSES🛑 . . My top 3️⃣ Excuses that I used to sabotage my own life: . . 1️⃣I Will Start Tomorrow: By following this logic, tomorrow you will see no reason why you can’t say the exact same thing. If you do this long enough & you eventually realize that you’ve postponed things so much they may not seem worth doing anymore. 2️⃣People Can’t Really Change: I believe that many people sabotage their lives simply because they don’t really believe they (or any other human being) can consciously change. They buy too much into that theory that a leopard cannot change its spots. Of course, I think that although there are limits to how much & how fast we can change, the rest is complete nonsense. The fact that some people don’t really change past the age of 15 doesn’t mean that people in general can’t change. 3️⃣My Situation Is Special: Many of us (including myself at times) believe the rules that apply for every other person do not apply for us. When given advise, how often do you object & testify that it may work for others, but it won’t work for you? If something works for 99% of the people who’ve applied it, it’s highly probable it will work for you as well. Let your guard down & try it before you declare that it doesn’t apply in your context. . . Take a deep breath & take a good look at the top 3️⃣ excuses above. Have you been using any of them lately? Can you see how they sabotage you way more than they support you? If you enjoyed the theme this week, comment with 💓💓💓💓💓 . . Living an extraordinary life, having an extraordinary career or extraordinary relationships, these things do not happen by making excuses. They happen by accepting that what it is is what it is, asking yourself how you can take it to the next level, and then acting on the answer.
. . 🛑STOP MAKING EXCUSES🛑 7am Talk 💓 . . ✋EXPECT CHALLENGES✋ . . Almost nothing worthwhile in life comes without a fight. Challenges are an essential part of life which should be embraced, engaged & overcome as they allow you to grow as a person. Whether you like it or not, you will face challenges along the way, so you might as well avoid making excuses and get on with the job of overcoming them. . . Excuses won’t get you anywhere at all. Instead, they are a terrible distraction which take your focus off of your most important tasks & reduces your confidence & self belief. Avoid making excuses & face your challenges head on. You will be more empowered, confident & successful when you do! . . The past 6 months I have filmed, logged & created the Ultimate Training Program - Which includes over 170 workouts, daily workout demo videos & an Ebook. This massive task had its challenges: as I wanted to do the entire project from start to finish all on my own. With injuries, computer glitches & filming errors… I could have given up. At the start of the program, I expected to see slower results then I was once used to. I stayed the course, trusting my abilities…. and with less then a week left… I couldn’t be happier with the result! (Both with my physique & the program!) Some of you have already pre-purchased the Ultimate Training Program at 50% off. The offer is still available UNTIL MY WEDDING DAY… so if you want to stop making excuses with your fitness & truly transform like I did… simply just click the bio link! @fitbunnyjill . .

. . ⛑️Safety first ⛑️ . . A fun way to keep your lower half deep in the seat.... to target the quad burn even more!! . . Many of us fail to keep our butt on the seat when lifting heavy... Problem solved! . . Anyone going to try this next leg workout?????
. . 🛑STOP MAKING EXCUSES🛑 . . 🔥CONSIDER LIFE AS A TRAINING GROUND🔥 . . When you start to regard life as a training ground, setbacks can be painted in a new light. Rather then berate yourself for mistakes, you may start to realize that the failure to achieve your goal actually provides an amazing opportunity to learn from your mistakes. When you implement what you learn, you can achieve much better results. With this attitude, you can begin to see failure as an essential part of your education in life. . . When you learn from your failures, it will condition you and makes you stronger. This is both a way to get a mental edge and an absolute truth. Adversity is a way to become smarter, stronger, more resilient, experienced & skilled. Next time you experience a setback; avoid making excuses & seek for the lesson to be learned. . . For example, over the past couple years, I have tried to re-create my success in sports by taking up both rowing & triathlon training. The result? Yes I failed… and for many months, I was embarrassed & depressed. Why? I hated to admit to myself and my followers that I was incapable of pursing the goal I set out to achieve. My excuse at the time was that the intensity was too much for my MS & cancer. Now some might say that is a good excuse, and yes it was my reality.. but there was something else; that I have never admitted to anyone before today. My heart wasn’t in it. I didn’t LOVE the sport(s), and nothing came close to competing as an IFBB bikini competitor. I couldn’t feel the satisfaction, fulfillment and adrenaline rush that I did when I was on stage. . . I learned that bodybuilding was my calling. It was what gave me life & purpose. Instead of trying to re-create that feeling in another sport, I have now come to accept that I was lucky enough to have found that feeling for the time that I did. I now look back at the memories in a new light. Fitness Competitions was and still is MY SPORT! . . If you feel you are ready to bring the concept of training ground to your life comment with 💪💪💪💪 it will be the most powerful thing you do!
. . 💪💪 FAV BICEP WORKOUT 💪💪 . . One of my fav bicep exercises is 21s 🔥🔥🔥🔥 . . To compete One Full Set: ➡️ 7 reps lower half only ➡️ 7 reps upper half only ➡️ 7 reps full range . . This was part of my back workout today... adding in 4 Sets to finish the training session 💓💓 . . Do you designate a bicep day? Or add it to another workout???
. . 🛑STOP MAKING EXCUSES🛑 . . 🔥FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS🔥beach in 7 days 🙈🙊 . . Most excuses occur after the fact (i.e something has to go wrong before you point out that it’s not your responsibility). This is particularly evident when it comes to the concept of time management. Most of us waste valuable time on things that don’t really matter. As a result, we fail to complete the tasks which really matter. . . We then respond to productivity problems by making excuses. It’s a way for us to justify poor decisions making. We can avoid making excuses here by avoiding these situations. To do that, we simply need to identify the most important tasks & focus on completing them. If we then have spare time, we can focus on tasks of lesser importance. . . This morning, take a moment to think about how you would like to be remembered. It can provide you with a real perspective. Would you like to be remembered for: The amount of time you spent in work? The size of your bank account? The care you drove? The size of your house? The number of followers you have on your social media? . . The above are all superficial issues which do not lead to personal fulfillment. They are based on image & quantity. Most important, if these are the things which you would like to be remembered for; you are allowing your life to be dictated by what is important to others. If you wish to create a happy, fulfilled & successful life, you cannot focus on what is important to others; you must focus on what is important to YOU! . .

. . ♥️Workout dedicated to my Grandad my Best Friend♥️ . . 8 days till Jamaica where I will get to marry Mr. Bunny infront of family and friends. My grandad; who loved Luke as a son.. will be watching the special day from up above. . . There isn't a day that goes by that I am not reminded of how incredible of a person he was. Today marks one year from his passing. He was always so supportive of my fitness pursuits; my number 1 fan. . . I know he has been with me EVERY workout for the past year, helping me transform for my big day. Love you Grandad.. today was a great leg workout ♥️♥️♥️
. . 🛑STOP MAKING EXCUSES🛑 . . 🔥TAKE RESPONSIBILITY🔥 . . Excuses are vehicles of blame, attempts to rationalize away responsibility for why things didn’t go the way you wanted them to. It's time to bust those excuses.... Just like I did the past 6 months 💪💪💪 . . I’ve touched on the concept of taking responsibility before, but it is the foundation of success. Whatever your goal may be, you are going to struggle to achieve it unless you take responsibility for your life. When you accept responsibility & learn to focus on the things which you can control, you will find it easy to avoid making excuses when things go wrong. . . To move forward & go after your goals, you must accept responsibility for the things you do & the thing you fail to do. Even when events outside of your control occur, you should avoid making excuses & identify the things which you can change to get a better results next time. When you accept responsibility you take control of your life. Making excuses robs you of your personal power. . . In order to get ready for my transformation, I needed to face my excuses head on. How? First, I identified & wrote down my nutrition & exercise goals. Next, I wrote down all the reasons I could think of for not working toward my goals; including self-doubts, fears & insecurities — (these are excuses too). Lastly, I punched holes in my excuses until they were no longer airtight, by coming up with counterarguments for every single excuse that I may have had for NOT working towards my goal. The result? As the picture shows... A SICK ASS back for my backless wedding dress 💓 . . Today, I challenge you to try the Excuse Busting exercise mentioned above! Over your morning coffee, take a few minutes and give this a go & comment with ❤️❤️❤️ if you are going to take RESPONSIBILITY and go after those BIG DREAMS! . .

. . ✋STOP MAKING EXCUSES✋ . . If you want to get from where you are in life to where you want to be, you need to stop making excuses & focus on the tasks that are going to get you there. If excuses were currency, we would all be rich. But in reality, for all the excuses we make, they actually provide nothing of value. Instead they take away personal power and self belief. If you stop making excuses, you can take responsibility for your life & take consistent & focused action to move closer to your goals. . . Building self-discipline is all about putting an end to excuses. It’s about taking responsibility for your behaviour and your life. It’s about getting the most out of all life has to offer. And, if you want to get the most of out life, you have to get up off the couch & go after your goals! . . The ability to avoid making excuses & focus on the task at hand is seriously underrated. There are many things which can come between you & your goal, & some of them will be outside your control. When these kinds of events occur, it’s easy to start pointing the finger at everybody else. Honestly, there are times when it feel good to have somebody to blame. It can help you feel better about yourself at the moment in time, but when that moment passes, you see that blaming others is a waste of time & energy. . . If you want to achieve your goals, you need to accept the setbacks, identify ways to overcome them & get back on track! If you are ready to STOP making EXCUSES and go after YOUR GOALS comment with 🛑🛑🛑 . . No one likes to admit they have excuses... And let me tell you, I have had my fair share. I am still working on this today, so you aren't the only one!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

. . 🔥DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO DREAM BIG?🔥 . . 💓MY STORY - MY BIG DREAM💓 . . For the past 6 years, my big dream was to become an IFBB Bikini Pro. It was the first and last thing that I would think about each and everyday. The dedication, commitment and sacrifices I made were endless, in my never ending pursuit of the elusive pro card. But then, my world started to crumble, and my big dream started to slip away. My body was becoming harder to work with and my fatigue was becoming unbearable. The entire time I was thinking…”I’m not working hard enough… I have to do more.” Not to mention the continual declining of my pro card application was more then I could bare. . . I still remember a time this past summer when I was told infront of a few people that I was going to be given my Pro Card if I went to the Arnold to hand out the award in my class. Yet… I was dealing with a bigger battle… cancer. That moment last August is something I will never forget. Did I cry? NO…. I was actually relieved to have witnesses hear what I was going through being the scenes. I left the show with my head held high & told myself, GO & GET YOUR POWER BACK! ♥️♥️ . . My NEW Dream became a body transformation… but this time… I would hold ALL THE POWER! I would have control over the outcome. I set out my goal to completely transform my body back to my TOP competing days, for the soul purpose of feeling good in my skin & to walk down the isle on my wedding day feeling confident & proud. . . The picture is a comparison of 2 weeks out from the Arnold in 2016 vs Today (2 weeks out from my wedding). Although my dream might not be as big as it was before… I assure you, it feels pretty damn sweet accomplishing the goal, and even sweeter that I did it for ME! . . No matter what your dream is, I have learned one thing. Do it for yourself! And although you cannot control everything; you can control how you look at a situation. 2 Weeks Today I will be a married woman….. and my big dream will come true! 💓💓💓💓💓
