I wasn’t going to post my meals today because i think they look too “boring” for instagram which is exactly why i am posting this 😊 on instagram you’ll see all these fancy oats or açai bowls, delicious icecreams topped with every chocolate you can imagine, amazing recipes with multiple ingredients and that’s fine 👏🏽 they’re delicious to look at but i don’t eat like that. quick, simple and nutritious is my usual monday to friday 😄
this week i realised that if i want to beat this girl ☝🏽 and bring in anjuli3.0, i need to fuel my body with foods that allow me to train and recover efficiently 💪🏽 in order to transform your body, you need to feed it like you want to! 😏 this week’s goal was really about listening to my body, drinking enough water, eating when i feel i need it (not based on the clock) and much less processed (so no special sauces on my mince or thai green curry mixes) 😁 on the training side, it was a deload week so no heavy lifting & only at the gym 5-6 times max! my body is definitely appreciating it 😍
so although this is not super “insta,” these are meals i love and i hope it shows you that it’s actually awesome to keep your meals simple! no point in complicating your journey any more than necessary 💕 i just listened to my body and intuitively ate, didn’t track today but you can enter any of my meals on to the free app myfitnesspal to track calories/macros 🤗

....if you simply go after that thing that you want with all your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith hope and confidence and stern pertinacity…if neither cold, poverty, famine, nor gout, sickness nor pain, of body and brain, can keep you away from the thing that you want…if dogged and grim you beseech and beset it, with the help of god, you will get it! – les brown

Believe it or not, despite being australian 🇦🇺 i’ve grown to become a big fan of 🇺🇸college football🏈 the thrills, spills and contentious ranking system all make for drama + excitement!
the season is about to begin soon and i recently stumbled across an interview on youtube featuring nick saban, the head coach of the alabama crimson tide🐘. in his tenure at the helm of alabama’s highly revered football program he has won a staggering 5 national championships 🏆 🏆🏆🏆🏆 (not including the 1🏆 he won as head coach at rival school lsu🐯). in the highly competitive landscape of college football that is quite a phenomenal achievement, the man clearly knows how to achieve success.
by my own admission, my comprehension of the game of football is quite limited😅 however, one thing that struck a chord with me in this interview was saban’s focus on what he called; “the process”.
as the interview continued he referred to it time and again. the very foundations of his team’s success boiled down to “the process”. so what is it? the process is simply saban's core belief that the willingness to prepare in a methodical manner with conviction on a daily basis is the key to success. saban believes those who focus on the result and not the consistent preparation that is necessary to achieve the result are doomed to be disappointed. however, if you focus your efforts towards the process required to achieve the outcome the result will take care of itself.
those that start a health kick often fall short because they become so fixated on the end result. their energy is often wasted focusing on the 5kg they want to lose and not focused on the actual process required to lose the weight. our motivation levels are bound to fluctuate but our discipline to the process is what will get great results. the process is; the meal prep on sunday, hitting your macros daily, nailing that rep pr on squats, getting 8 hours of sleep each night. these actionable tasks are variables within your control. define the standard that you want to work toward, then execute the process to that standard every single day.
