Goals and Aspirations for After Prep

Hey there all! I hope everyone had a great week. I gotta say that I did. I just felt a good balance and serenity that I don’t feel all the time and I’m diggin it! I decided to take a few minutes and go over my goals and aspirations for after my competition because I think it is important to always have a solid plan. That’s just how I roll.

First and foremost, I plan on reverse dieting and slowly increasing my calories and decreasing my cardio as I continue to put on size. I refuse to let myself completely rebound after working my ass off. I would like to still seem relatively lean in this off season. I am excited to eat more and rest my body more and get healthy again so I am in the best position possible for the next prep.

The original plan was to hit a few stages, but I am listening to my body and it definitely doesn’t want that for me right now. I am also going to finally be responsible and think of my health and make a bunch of doctor appointments that I have been putting off for far too long.

I also plan on getting back to consistently working on my NASM corrective exercise certification and applying what I am learning with myself and my clients. I am almost finished but I have to study for the final exam, which I heard is pretty difficult. I am looking forward to focusing more on work and seeing what else is out there in terms of training. Some exciting things are in the works right now actually. My friend Lori and I are working on building a company that specializes in in-home personal training, so that’s really exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing how it grows.

A big one for me is that I also want to travel more and gain more lovely experiences to look back on. Life is too short and I feel like I haven’t done much because I was never in the position to. Not that I’m loaded or anything, but I have some money saved and I have a more flexible schedule now than I will probably have again for a very long time after the next year or so.

Somewhere in between all those other goals, my priority is to save money at the same time and work on moving out of my house and living on my own. I’m not sure when that will be. My goal for myself is sometime next year or the following year at the absolute latest. I would like to live in Florida, so that is something I have been seriously considering.

So, that’s where I am currently at. This experience has definitely made me look at life differently, but I will save that for another post! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Thanks for following.
