Veronica has gone through her fare
share of struggles either through changing her routines, injuries,
prepping food and juggling home duties, being a mum and running a
business. But the day she realised that her reasons and goals stayed
the same no matter how many times she woke up, went to sleep,
dropped the kids off at school or any other duties she was doing.
she knew she will
continue to chase her goals and her reason why, no matter what.
At the end of the day I will continue
to chase my goals and my reason why, no matter what."
Here are Veronica's tips to help you with your transformation.

have learnt that unexpected things happen in our life and we cannot
stop these things from happening. The only way to overcome these
hurdles, is we need to set our goals first in front of us. This
gives us something to move forward to, look forward to and to drive
Keep practicing: Even
though you tend to struggle at the beginning, keep practicing. You
are not expected to be a professional or master chief in the

there is really no turning back. It becomes a lifestyle and there is
no end to it. And the greatest part is, you are not cutting calories

a harsh ankle injury at the beginning of one of my programs, I was
devastated and I was letting my injury overcome my goals. After
speaking with my mentor Mel, she opened my mind to a new way of
thinking which I love. From then I decided there was no backing
down. I wasn't going to allow an injury to stop me from what I
wanted to achieve. My solution was to focus on what I could do and
keep the remainder of my 12 weeks as compliant as I could with my
nutrition and continue to attend my 2 FIRE sessions.
“You don't realise where this can take you, until you wake up one day and you have abs, so keep going, do not give up.”
Do not give up: The first
12 weeks was tough. I was excited to do the best I could and finish.
But what I had noticed was after week 12, I was still prepping
foods, I was still making my MP meals and I was still waking up not
wanting to eat cereals. Before I knew it I had finished 3 programs
with my mentor and my abs were showing.
You don't realise where this can take
you, until you wake up one day and you have abs, so keep going, do
not give up.
