Staying Lean Year Round, What To Snack On After Dinner, And A Very Cool Opportunity!

"fitness modeling melbourne"An intended feature of Woman Incredible since it’s ‘birth’ has been to, well, ‘feature’ incredible women from all walks of life. So far, I’ve made a fairly pitiful effort of only interviewing a few of the very many amazing ladies I know, but today I’m making amends with what has turned out to be not only an informative piece but a fun and (of course!) inspiring one as well.

Lately it’s seemed that no matter where I’ve turned in the fitness industry a certain lady is popping up in front of me. She’s kind of memorable because she always has a super sunny smile on her face, and generally some super-motivating words to go with it.

And then there’s the most inspiring physique of course. Justine and I first really talked when I asked her to feature as one of the fabulous 29 women featured in my Woman Incredible launch post. One of Justine’s tips in that post was a favourite of mine and still is –

“Train for life not for a day. Train because you love it not because you have to.”

So today, I want to more formally introduce you to Justine, who has been kind enough to answer 5 quick questions on what makes her not only one of the best but also one of the nicest fitness models/competitors out there. Not to mention the current face of Everlast sportswear!

WI: You have a reputation of (to put it bluntly!) being a ‘hot chick with abs’ pretty much all-year round? I know you eat differently when preparing for a comp, but to what would you credit your ability to stay quite lean and healthy year round?

Justine: Haha.. Am I really known as that?! I put it down to:

1) Loving exercise- It isn’t a task for me to get to the gym, I absolutely love it. I love mixing up my training and trying new things. I periodise my training so that I get enough rest in between workouts and get the down time that I need. I train what I need to and what feels like it needs it.

2) I have found my balance. Initially I worked very hard to get my physique to a point where I was happy with it, then from there I am now able to live by the philosphy 5 days on-2 days off. I eat clean and train hard Monday to Friday then on the weekends I eat out, have a wine (if I am not prepping for anything) and try and relax. It gives me the mental break that I need to reset and start again on Monday.

WI: If you had just a few weeks to ‘pull out all the stops’ for a special event, assuming of course you’d already been eating and training quite well, what would you change to meet that goal?

Justine: I’ve trialled multiple principals over the years and what my body responds to quicky is low carb with controlled fats. I will drop most of my carbs and eat protien every 3 hours with fats every 2nd meal.

WI: One of the questions I get asked nearly daily by women is ‘what is okay to snack on after dinner’. I’d love to hear your response to that?

Justine: I don’t tend to snack anything after dinner as my last meal is around 8pm. If I was it would be egg or a shake with some BCAA’s. Eating before bed is unnecessary as you don’t need the calories to sleep. The only reason you would need to eat before bed is for muscle gains or recovery.

WI: If you had to choose your #1 trick or tactic for staying motivated, focused, and on track to meet such inspiring goals, what would it be?

Justine: I keep my eyes on the prize, I am all about improving myself in every area of my life and the feeling of self development and achievement is second to none.

Nothing tastes better than the taste of success.

WI: Thanks for a truly inspiring interview Justine! Looking forward to watching your progress this year!

You can follow Justine over here on Facebook – her feed is honestly one of the most motivating ones I follow! And what a great quote to finish with – I think I’ll go and plan for a few new ‘tastes of success’ in my own life after reading that again just now 🙂

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

How It’s Going Down and Why I Created This For You!

I want to do the exact work with you that I myself do on repeat,

And, also, the ‘most favourite’ work I come back to again and again with my private clients.

Do you know what I am EXTRA excited for, in doing this program with you?

This work is also the most FUN work I do! It’s like being a kid in a candy store … or in an art room … and just knowing – ‘wow! I get to choose! I LITERALLY GET TO MAKE IT UP AND THEN IT HAPPENS!’

Can you imagine?

DO you?

And do you create and allow your life to unfold from that place already?

You literally get to make it up and then it happens!

Pssst … whatever you think you’re ‘making up’?? Is actually just soul TELLING you what’s up. And then you choosing it!

Even if you already live and play life this way,

there’s always another level,

always new depths to go to,

always more YES to claim!

And the things you think are SO far away,

are only as far as you let ’em be!
