How to Stay Motivated!


Some days we have it, some days we don't. We’re all human! But how do you keep yourself on track towards your goals when you may not feel “up to it”?

There’s no right or wrong answer, but here at The Shoe Fairy we want to share some helpful tips for our competitors who may not always feel the motivation to wake up and do their fasted cardio, prep all of their meals, or practice their posing!

First things first, remember your WHY. Competing is a gift. It’s a tough sport and takes a lot of willpower and determination to achieve longevity in the sport. Reminding yourself why you want to compete, why you want to better yourself, why you want to reach goals that not everyone can, it helps push you to hold your head up and keep pushing forward. If it were easy, everyone would do it!

Next, create moodboards or save inspiring pictures or quotes that resonate with you and drive you to want to get up and get moving or eat your healthy meals. Sometimes we all need a little inspiration and having something to look at that stimulates your way of thinking really helps!

However, this could go both ways. Always make sure that the content that you consume over social media and the internet is quality content that uplifts you and propels you into working harder to better yourself, not put you down or make you feel as though you’re not doing enough because your story may or may not be “equivalent” to someone else’s. Here at TSF we always want to make our social media platforms, blogs, and any other resources helpful, inspiring, uplifting, and inclusive for each and every competitor!

Lastly, and probably the most important of all- buy yourself something nice! Sounds silly we know! But, think of how good you feel when you step into the gym with fresh athletic wear or step on stage with gorgeous new jewelry, etc. As women ourselves, we know first hand how exciting it is to have new stuff and how there’s real psychological benefits behind it. From now (8/27) to Sunday (8/30) we are offering 15% off SITEWIDE with code “MOTIVATION” at checkout- NO exclusions! So you can stock up and get motivated to crush your goals harder than ever!

Also, with us being based out of New Jersey, and experiencing the recent gym closures due to the pandemic, finding the motivation to achieve our own goals has been tough and we feel for all of our local competitors! This was why we created our “Quarantine Queens” Photoshoot that is now finally just TWO days away!

Keep up with us on Instagram (@theshoefairy_)  as we go LIVE from the event on Saturday (8/29) and showcase all of our models, competitors, and athletes who stayed motivated through this hard time to come shoot with us!
