❤️💪WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY 💪❤️
As we are just 3 days out from our final competition of the season at @northern_classic I wanted to praise this woman right here @queen_chelle72 .
It had always been a dream of mine to step on stage at the #emeraldcup by @craigproductions. But I was always filled with self doubt.
After prepping last year for what turned out to be a door opening photoshoot at the #2017mrolympia with the amazing @furiousfotog this woman said, "See! You could totally do it" followed by, "We can do it together".
I was floored because her fear of standing in front of large groups was almost debilitating and up to that point her training was what I'd call "Less than Beast Mode" 😉.
But what followed was months of shear determination. The commitment she made to the goal was enough motivation to drive a team of atheletes. She became an artist at meal prepping and keeping us on track (much love @transformationfitnesspt) and she NEVER missed a day of training. She made all the arrangements to have my two youngest boys @justice_dedmon @dylan__12th flown out from AZ to attend the show.
That day, in arguably the biggest regional competition in our area, her fist competition, overcoming her fears, she missed the podium by one spot! I'd be remiss if I didn't say I teared up. Since then she has gone on to compete in 3 more shows including the biggest stage ever the #2018mrolympia and has secured her National Qualification in #NPC #figure.
This weekend in what will be her 5th competition in 5 months she is bringing her leanest yet most muscular package yet (Thank you @teamoverby) . No matter what the outcome this Saturday I would have never embarked on this journey without her gentle nudge and I am so lucky to have her riding "Shot Gun" along the way so she will always be a champion to me! #northernclassic2018 #NPC #figure #myteam #mypeople #mymoon #FITFAM💪 #teamdchelle #DEDLFT #DIMOS
