Stuck In Reverse? (Hint: It's Time To Change Gears)

It’s crazy how often we call girls up who tell us:

“More than anything I want to feel confident in my body."

I want to be strong enough to win a powerlifting show and lean enough to get onstage.

I want to radiate joy and happiness at the same time and nourish my body with food I like and thoughts that I chose for myself.”

And yet they aren’t prepared to make any changes to do it.

Oh, they are prepared to tell us all the reasons (excuses)
that they have been telling themselves that they CAN’T do it.

After all, telling themselves excuses is the exact thing they have been practicing and now they are really good at it.

"My boyfriend/husband/lover won’t let me, he makes my decisions for me."
(Really?)

"I’m too busy at work."
(You always will be, work is not going away in the future)

"I’m not sure you can help me, I need more information"
(I’m a world champion who coaches WBFF Pro’s, women in the cover of magazines, the awe inspiring Wendy day who is in her 50’s got super lean and crushed it on stage)

"I don’t have any money."
(But I haven’t sold any of the useless crap I don’t want or stopped drinking booze and eating out every week which are the opposites of what I want)

You get the idea.

In fact if any of those excuses are your “reasons” I want to assure you of two things.

They are bullshit and they are stopping you from getting what you want.
You will be called to account if you ever serve those excuses up to me or my team.
We do not swallow bullshit.
But we will coach you how to get past it.

We will guide you up the steep mountain, to the top of your game, to the top of this industry.

It will be you on stage, having your name called out.
It will be you in the gym being admired for how you live your life and what you do.
It will be you who leads your family and inspires your kids.

It will be your business that grows.

It will you who can look in the mirror and hear nothing but self-love and confidence.

But you won’t change by staying the same.

You will have to invest your focus, your time and your money.

That’s how ok becomes good and good becomes great and great becomes world class.

My team is nearly full (again) we have twelve spots left.

The World Doesn't Need More Mediocrity

The greatest currency we have is how we make others feel.

What mark are you leaving in this world?

You are doing the world a dis-service by not showing up and doing the things you said you would do, not shining to your true potential.

The world doesn’t need more mediocrity.

It needs more leaders.
More explorers,
More greatness
More inspiration.

The world needs you
The world needs you to show up in-spirit,
because when you shine you give others permission to shine too

What are YOU doing to contribute to the world and to others?

Develop a skill set that not only takes you to greater heights,
but can teach others to do the same.

It's time, live your spirit, be your vision.

Love and light

Getting Back On Track

Have you had a good break?

I’ve enjoyed my first real break since I went travelling five years ago.

I went to the gym three time in two weeks and haven’t paid much attention to what I have eaten. I have stayed up late and slept in too.

Most importantly I haven’t been beating myself up but I’m definitely ready to re-assert my discipline and routine. I probably feel like two weeks is a little bit too long to be out of rhythm but I’m excited to start re-asserting my habits and routine.

How are you feeling?
Did you give yourself a mental break?

The girls I coach are split into three groups right now.

One third had their best Christmas ever, they still tracked what they ate and managed to keep going to the gym without feeling over burdened or that they were compelled to do so because of guilt.

The next third took the last few weeks off because they are in a great place mentally and decided they wanted a break from structure, routine and discipline.

The last third are wrestling with where they are at. They didn’t stick to their plan but they also feel guilty about it AND are anxious that they won’t recover and that the extra kilo and a few centimetres has ruined EVERYTHING.

And that’s cool too because there was a time that I would have felt the same.
But now I have learned HOW to get back on track and renew my commitment to myself, my goals and a sense of balance. With this chance to practice my girls will too.

What are you feeling right now?

Are you in balance emotionally or has all or nothing thinking for you feeling guilty or anxious?

It’s hard but the key here is to focus on what you can control not the things that you can’t control.

You can’t control the past,
you ate what you ate
and you didn’t do the training you didn’t do.

You can’t control the future,
you can’t decide what will happens
and you can’t control your “results”

What you can control is

The thoughts you focus on
The words you speak
The actions you take.

Even more simply it’s worth focusing on two actions that you can take every day for the for the next two weeks.

Then just nail those two actions.

If your unsuccessful sit down and work out
what you did well,
what you didn’t do well
and then how you can get better (make a plan).

Then spend the following two weeks nailing those two things.

If you are successful try adding two more actions in a fortnight time and repeat the process.

It doesn’t matter if you are successful or not, what matters is that you are trying to get better every week and practicing living the way that you choose but taking control again.

We spend allot of time in The Sports Model Project learning how to balance our goals, being playful, having a life and being disciplined.

My program is only for women who are ready to do the work,
be resourceful and transform their habits, their body and their mind.

You can start the New Year right and apply for my team here.

Love and light,

Do You Have What It Takes To Step Into The Arena?

Have you have been dancing around your dreams and goals, all those good ideas that you have never taken action on?

I know you’re unsettled because you know in your heart YOU ARE meant to be more than what you are right now.

Average has the better of you. and yet….

You are attracted to greatness because you know deep down you are great.

You know today is your next chance at greatness. See that’s the beautiful thing about life, each moment is a chance at redemption.

Until there is no more time or that season of your life is over
and your dream remains imaginary your goal is still on paper your idea is forgotten and your greatness remains unfulfilled.

So why not take a chance?
Why not act on the desire to be great?

Step into the arena
I know it’s scary because
“I tried” And “I failed”

But in hindsight I see know that BOTH are a step into the arena.
“What if” Isn’t.
Neither is “Maybe later”
Maybe later means definitely never.

When will NOW be the time?
What is failure?

“Failure” is proof of progress.
Failing forward is failing your way to success.
Each failure is an OPPORTUNITY to learn, to grow
to build strength, knowledge, success and empowerment.

“What if” won’t get you there
Stepping into the arena will.
That’s what all of my girls in The Sports Model Project have done.
They have left average behind, they stepped into the arena.
You can too.

How To “De-Stress” When Things Get Crazy

This week I compete for the WBFF World Title in Las Vegas.

I have never been more focused in my life and I have never had so many powerful reflections on life and success and happiness.

I have been sharing them in a video log for my girls in The Sports Model Project and I wanted to share this with you today.

It's really important to be conscious of your state.

Your mental state your energy,
how you stay connected to yourself,
how you stay connected to others,
how you stay connected to your purpose.

Do you know what you are here to do?

I have been working hard on a re-branding of the Sports Model Project and it's made me think, what is the Sports Model Project?

What are we about?
What do we do?
Who are we as a community, as a team, as individuals, as coaches, as clients, as friends?

When I think about my purpose in life it's simple:

"Be A Bright Shining Light

With my energy, with my love, with myself, with friends, with family, with my work, with the Sports Model Project.

And then on the other side, I have these other purposes of being the hardest worker in the room, being a lion and then also being playful.

If I think about how do I stay in a beautiful state
or how do I be in state for each part of my life, jhow does each focus get the right energy it can be a little tough!

How can I be all those things at once?

That's where I go back to I guess what my purpose is, what my passion is.

This morning, in the last week I've been a little bit tired.
I'm not going go lie. I'm so close but so far.

I realised those parts in my day where I wasn't smiling or you know I would ride past people and I wouldn't say hello and I felt that this maybe wasn't really me and I was like,

"Just be a shining light"

That's what I said to myself.

How do you be a shining light?

Say hi to everyone.

You know you're out riding your bike, it's beautiful day, the air is warm and I just consciously put myself back into that state.

So every morning that I ride out early,
and the only people that are around are the workers that have been sleeping on the ground, I make sure I say hello to every single person.

I literally say,
"Hola volunteers" (I live in Mexico right now)

To everyone; everyone that goes past me, whether they're on a car, whether they're on a bike, whether they're walking

and you know to them it might be like,
"Oh this is weird."

But to me I think, well...

This is how I could brighten someone's day.

I'm being a shining light.

I'm saying hello to people that probably don't get to said hello to by that many people or are always just the men at the work sites and are being told what to do all day.

Then, when I go to social media or even just going about my day I'm being that shining light and I always find that if I'm able to shine, I can allow others to do the same.

When Michelle's feeling down, I can shine my light on her. I can make her warm.

I can pull her out of a state and that's what I've been doing and I'm allowing her to shine bright. And you know, you can take on this same thing.

If you want to be a shining light, be a shining light!

When you allow yourself to shine, when you give yourself permission to shine, you allow others to shine as well because your energy is going to touch someone else.

Now if I flip over to my other motto which is be the hardest worker in the room, it's a very different energy but that energy serves me a purpose, right?

It's a strong energy and I always say, I've got no yin, I'm all yin no yang or I think it might be all yang no ying.

But actually, if I think about myself and my energies, and what I wear my two,
I guess the things that I say to myself constantly would either

"Be a shining light" or "Be the hardest worker in the room. "

Those two energies are balanced.
One's yin and one's yang.

And this is what I teach you girls, know when push, know when to pull; know when to be playful, know when to be strong and disciplined.

You know I also think of myself as a feline, you know I'm a lion when I need to be a lion.

I say,
"Oh the Lions coming"

When it comes to a stage, when it comes to hunting, when it comes to being in the gym, I'm a lion. I'm there. I'm on a mission. I'm hunting. I'm hungry.

Then when I'm not in the gym,
I also need to allow myself to be playful.
I need to be a pussycat.

I call myself a pussycat you know
and it's that push and pull of energies that we need to tap into, masculine and feminine.

I always know when I'm being too much of one, because the other one falls behind, I feel out of balance.

When I'm too hard, I feel overwhelmed or I feel a little off. When I'm too playful, I get a little anxious that I haven't done enough.

We need to have both.
We need to know when to be hard.
We need to know when to be soft.
We need to know when to nurture ourselves.
We need to know when to be disciplined on ourselves.
We need to know when we are being too hard on ourselves.

Have you been too hard on yourselves or are you being too soft?

I teach all my girls in The Sports Model Project to find this balance.
All the good things are in this middle place.

This is where confidence lies, this is where you feel supremely sexy,
this is where the growth happens it's also where transformation happens.

Being soft, being hard; being playful, being disciplined that's my reflection of the morning.

So whats happened since I really pushed to put myself back and
said "you know what, just be a shining light"?

It's allowed me to be soft in my nature when I'm not in the gym.
It's allowed me to be a little bit more playful.
It's allowed me to be a bit kinder to myself,
to be more playful in my posing, to enjoy my posing more.
You know, saying hi to people on the street.
I love seeing hi to people, I talk to anyone.

It's really, really nice and so you know when you are going about your day
and you're so up in your head and you've got a stern look in your face
and you get to work you realize you haven't even smiled yet?

I want you snap yourself out of it.

I want you to start to be playful.
I want you to start to be your own shining light.
Because when you allow yourself to shine bright,
you also allow others to do the same.

So You Want To Be The Best Version Of Yourself?

How far off are you right now?
Where do you even start?

I have an idea 🙂
If you really want to be the best version of yourself you have to be honest and cut through your own bullshit.

I had to.
It was the only way.

It’s how I moved from the darkness to the light.

If I was still using the same excuses, telling myself the same stories as I was 5-10 years ago- even 2 years ago I would not have the mindset and energy I have now.

Develop tools or work with someone who can help you overcome your barriers. See a therapist, read books, get a coach, listen to podcasts from people who have gone on the journey you want to go on

If you are getting tired of being stuck or going backwards it’s time you start to recognise your words, thoughts and actions.

Your mind is the most powerful tool you can control.

Your words have meanings and your stories have power.

The moment I recognised this, I was able to deconstruct my story and change my words and ultimately transform my life.

I developed this skill to nurture myself as well as push myself .

I trained myself to be coachable and I’ve taught myself to become my own cheerleader because at the end of the day if you can’t cheer yourself on or call yourself on your own bullshit you will continue to live in your own limitations and you will continue to punish yourself.

Push yourself and cheer yourself on instead!
That’s what I do for my girls in The Sports Model Project, I kick their butt when they need it and I cheer everyone of their successes.

I also teach them how to eat, how to train and most importantly how to make control of their thoughts words and actions so that they can transform their physiques and their lives.

I did it, my girls do it and you can too.

All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

Your mindset, the way you think and feel, completely determines your experience of life.

It also determines the actions that you take every day.

So your mindset, what you think and what you feel
determines if you train and follow your nutrition.

More importantly it determines HOW you feel about it
and whether or not you enjoy the process.

Your mindset also directly affects your body composition.

Your metabolism is a like a thermostat, taking in all of the stressors around you.
With that information it decides what messages to send your cells.

Those messages are in the form of hormones which go to the target cells and tell them what job they should be doing.

I want to guarantee that if the message coming from your mind is stress and anxiety or if you keep telling yourself that you're not good enough then that message is heard loud and clear by every cell in your body.

Can you guess the type of physique you will build?

I want my girls to have an amazing and a beautiful experience of this life so I spend a lot of time working with the whole team on their mindset.

April is meditation month for all of the girls in SMP Elite and the SMP Diamond program.

We are all going to meditate every day for the next 30 days.
I'd love you to join in, all the cool kids are doing it!

You can use any method or technique that you like but we are using the Headspace app and then posting the log that it creates each day.

There is no compulsion and you can do any length of mediation but the discipline is to do it daily. I recommend doing 20 minutes and learning to sit with that.

You don't have to stop thinking,
you can't be "good" or "bad" at it,
even your resistance to doing it is a lesson in itself.

You can post your daily log here on my performance page or you can just follow along with us.

I'd love you to get involved!

Light and loving kindness,
Hattie xoxo

The Fitness Industry Is Lying To You: Here's Why

The fitness industry constantly lies to you about how long it takes to get in shape.

They don't believe you have the attention span to do what it takes. 

So they baby you.

They bombard you with

"30 Day Booty Programs" 

and 

"Ab Blasting Detox’s" 

or a miracle diet or cure that 

“Makes It Easy” 

It ‘aint easy 

Sorry it just isn’t 

But It’s also not that hard. 

The success you crave requires consistency, self-love and a mindset that doesn’t expect everything to come at once.

So if you're from the quick fix brigade I can’t help you but never fear everyone else has a program for you. 

Don’t get me wrong I could starve you and make you sweat a whole heap with 

"Superb Intense Workouts" 

and get you to 

“Drop 5kg in 14 Days” 

but honestly It won’t stick 

and eventually you will get fat because you 

- WILL blow up your metabolism 

- WON'T learn anything you can apply months down the track. 

- PLUS it’s really just the easy way. 

Anyone can do anything for eight weeks 

or four weeks 

or fourteen days 

or seven days. 

It's easy. 

But when it’s easy it doesn’t leave same impact on your psyche and your soul that difficult does. 

Taking the shortcut doesn’t help you to grow and develop as a woman. (Plus you don't get a result that lasts for life)

I'll let you in on a little secret that everybody knows but pays no attention to: 

The rate that your body adds muscle or loses fat is different for everybody.

Some people are “hyper-responders” a little training and dietary change and they look amazing. (We all have a friend and probably a brother like that). 

There are also under-responders people who don’t respond much to training and nutrition and see really slow changes in their body composition. 

Most of us are somewhere in the middle.

We have no control over that. 

We can only control our thoughts, words and actions.

So, I can’t stand the lies the fitness industry is selling you about how quick you can 

“Shred fat” 

It’s mainly bullshit 

and even when the quick fix works for hyper-responders 

it’s usually breaks quickly too. 

Then you have no successful habits or techniques to rely on. 

The Sports Model Project is about a process of transformation. 

Teaching you the power of moderation, correct mindset and discipline 

The result of these things is overwhelming confidence and funny enough, 

elite body composition. 

Our mission is to take you to the next level, 

to make you the best version of yourself 

and to give you the tools to stay like that the rest of your life. 

All of my birds fly away eventually, 

but that's because they can actually fly.

The best place to start is my ultimate workout plan.  It sets an incredible training foundation - even if you're quite experienced in the gym and you've been training for a while.  

No, it's not going to get you in competition shape in 4 weeks.  

No, it's not going to give you all of the answers for your whole life.

But it will give you a solid foundation to build from and foundations are incredibly important in this game.

Click the banner below, enter your details and we'll send you out the plan.

Enjoy!

Hattie

What's At The End Of All Those Negative Thoughts?

What could you achieve if you changed your focus?

What would happen If you shifted from only seeing what you don’t like or don’t have, to seeing what you do like and you do have.

Focusing on what you don’t have
or what you can’t do
will get you exactly what you're focused on
You will keep on not having it and not being able to do it.

Where your focus goes your energy flows.

What would happen if you focus on who you want to be
and the characteristics you will take on to become that person?

Instead of going on social media to “validate” how far away you are from your dream physique, go to the gym, read a book, write out your plan, reflect on your process, IMPROVE your process, meditate, spend time with people you love.

Start acting like the person you want to become

then as soon as you do
in that instant,
you are.

The Sports Model Project was designed to completely refocus you.
To reframe all of your current beliefs, habits and process and place them in service of your big scary, secret goals.

The goals that you only whisper, even to yourself.

"One day I'll be the best version of myself:"
"One day I'll be strong, lean, eating food and happy at the same time"
"One day I'll put that dress on and feel confident"
"One day I'll compete, and I'll win"

But instead of you whispering them, and instead of them being "goals" my Sports Model Project makes them a reality.

I am the best version of myself!" 🙂
"I'm strong and lean, I'm eating all of the food and I'm so happy"
"I look SO good in this dress!"
"I got on stage and... I won"

So I'm always getting little messages like this from my girls:

Are you ready to be the hardest worker in the room?

Have you been training hard in the gym for the last two years?

Are you willing to work on your habits and mindset as well as your nutrition and exercise?

Are you must prepared to support other women and be open to them supporting your success too?

Are you ready to be the best version of yourself?
