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.

P.S.

🔥🔥 FIRED UP & FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE is here! Eeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk and a HALF! I have not been this, well, FIRED UP & READY TO EXPLODE in a LONG while.

https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/firedup

You know when something just comes through you?

And it’s HOLY FREAKING FLOW YES and all the things?

And you FEEL the fire and the gold and the energy and the NOW?

Well,

this is that.

AND THEN SOME.

I’m so proud to invite you in to this brand new course with me! I will be teaching this in a LIVE Facebook group with twice weekly livestream trainings (+ more!) – something I have not done in a very long while.

When you say yes to soul-

life says yes to you.

Fired up and Financially Ready to Explode is the NEXT level wealth and mindset strategy for the already successful woman who is done playing small!

Here’s the thing –

There are very clear reasons why you never quite get to that FULL inhale-exhale state of money freedom, even as your income and lifestyle goes up.

You can bet your sweet ass we gonna talk about those reasons. Understand them. And learn how to roll with them. BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE FULLY BEING YOU.

And OMG. So much more. And a LOT of it comes down to understanding that the MONEY WORKS FOR YOU WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO ROLL WITH YOUR OWN CHANGING NEEDS.

And? That there are a million freakin’ ways to make money and there is ALWAYS money there that gets to come from flow. So for women like us … one of the biggest FOOLHARDY AF things we can do .. is try to make our business flow respond to things we think should work, things that did work, things that are working for others, etc!

What we need instead is simple:

A clear freaking understanding of where today’s money is at. This week’s. This months. The long-terms. And how to do it all in a way where true wealth growth becomes automated and inherent to who you are. Where you can breathe fully in your creative needs each day. AND, where it’s ALL fun and yes whilst making a crazy impact on those you want to help!

In short?

You need to get FIRED UP AND FINANCIALLY READY TO EXPLODE with me.

And that’s what we’re gonna do here:
