How Rachel Stays Motivated
"For me, I don't look at training or nutrition as something that is optional. This is my body. Why wouldn't I want to do everything I can to make sure that I'm taking care of it? Especially after coming this far," Rachel said.
"Even on the days when I don't want to go to the gym, you will find me there," she added. Rachel realized early on that weightlifting, working out, and eating the right things aren't contingent on your emotions. "If you can look at these things objectively and treat them as boxes you check off each day, then you can achieve whatever goals you have." She said you'll learn how to say no to your cravings and how to press into the discomfort of a tough workout. "In the end, you will learn that motivation really has nothing to do with it. It's your discipline that makes your goals happen," Rachel said.
