***long post alert***
My 10 week progress. I wasn’t going to post until closer to my show, but if I can motivate at least one person, it’s worth it to me.
I took about 2 years off from competing. Why? I wanted a break. Physically and mentally. But let me tell you something. That one one of the worst things I think I have ever done for myself. Now before I go any further, just me just say KUDOS to those who can stay mentally strong during time off.
Clearly, this is a transparency post. Let me start by saying... my “before” photo was after a week of strict tracking. I was down 3 lbs of water weight. Mentally I struggle with the way I look in my before picture. In 2017, I was on and off the wagon. And I couldn’t figure out why. To this day I still don’t know why! So the first of the year I made a commitment to myself again. A New Years resolution, if you will. To get back to my intrinsic motivated self. To battle whatever it was that was going on in my mind. So far, I’m winning! I’m more motivated than I have EVER BEEN in my entire life. I’m 100% happy in ALL aspects of my life. My career, my relationships, my support, my home. Everything. My sleep has improved, my digestion is FINALLY on point, my metabolism is on fire my depression seems to be damn near gone, and my insecurities have turned into confidence again ... and it is ALL thanks to my amazing coach @nicolecress. She not only is amazing with transforming bodies, she is amazing with transforming the mind and a person as a whole. Little by little she has chipped at this with me and has made this life obtainable for me. She has never given up on me even during my on again off again 2017... Let me just tell you. Focus. Make yourself a priority. Make time for what’s important. Have balance. Live your life while keeping in mind that you are still important. This life is amazing. I wish everyone can experience this feeling. #bikinicompetitor#npc#myjourney#youarebeautiful#youareimportant#npcbikini#acbikinis@angelcompetitionbikinis@beautyfit#southernstates2018#18weeksout#moremotivatedthanever#happy#balance
