Not many people will know this but this year at my first qualifier the @bnbf_official Scottish qualifier it didn’t quite go to plan. I placed 3/3, yes dead last, I knew I wasn’t quite ready but nothing can prepare you for the devastation of not even qualifying! Yes I would have loved to win as it was a show in my home town but to not qualify hurt! I have to say to begin with i was very low and felt like the sport wasn’t meant for me. After a few good pep talks I knew that I couldn’t let that be the last that anyone saw of me this year, I had a point to prove! @vicky_dfacpro did have her work cut out for her working with someone who put on as much weight as I did and I had to totally kill myself this year! But by the end I felt like I’ve had a good year, I was happy with what I managed to produce by the time of the finals and came up against one of the best heavyweight classes there’s ever been! Bodybuilding is not over for me but when I’ll be back? Who knows.. happy for everyone to see when I didn’t get it right, we have to male our own mistakes to learn from them.
