Really Fit People...
We see them all over TikTok and Instagram and wonder, “How do they do that? How do they keep their body in such great shape?” And 9 times out of 10 the Really Fit People say “Consistency and Discipline.” But what about when they don’t “feel like going to the gym” or they do “feel like eating everything” how do they get over those hurdles?
We sat down with one of those "Really Fit People", our very own Roll Model, Rosanna, to hear how she takes on her day to day being a Bikini competitor.
MOBOT: Rosanna, you have already accomplished some of your goals in this field, and we know you have bigger ones to tackle, but what do you do when you wake up and you don’t feel strong?
MOBOT: Most people who are going for a goal, whether it’s in their career, in fitness, in self development, have a little phrase or saying that reminds them to keep going. What is your catchphrase?
Rosanna: “You are bigger than your circumstances.”
MOBOT: Being in a high achieving and very performance oriented world, have you ever faced anxiety?
Rosanna: “Yes, but I have decided that I can not let anxiety limit me or control me. I don’t know what it is about or where it’s coming from - I can have a great day and BOOM. It's easy to go into negative mental patterns and blame yourself - it is easy to think that you are anxious - But have to separate yourself from your anxiety.”
MOBOT: I love that, you need to: separate yourself from the anxiety. How have you been able to shake it off and be in control vs it being in control?
Rosanna: “When I’m in an anxious stage I’ve learned that if I hold my breath, my body will focus on what is more important, breathing vs the anxiousness, and this dissipates it much faster. So I take the mental moment to say “I am in control” I hold my breath and my body responds the way I want it to. But for everyone it will be different, so do your own research and see what you think can work for you and next time you will have the tools.”
MOBOT: Working towards big goals and dreams can, for some, feel overwhelming. How do you stay focused to keep working towards yours?
1). I have a really strong support system surrounding me.
MOBOT: What is your final encouragement to people who are going after greater, healthier things in their life?
Rosanna: “At the end of the day it is always your decision, you should never rely on anyone else to reach your goal/ make the decision. Feel good that you made your own decision and saying yes to something better!!”
