#TransformationTuesday I've been debating how to caption this one for the better part of two days. No amount of words or inspirational quotes will really do justice for work that was done in the 1 year and 3 months between photos. When I competed in my first show last May, I don't think I was taken very seriously, which is fine, as that's life; but I think most saw me as a girl pulled into all the glam and sensationalism that surrounds competing. I was a "bucket lister," probably even a joke to many. What many never realized, is that even though the hand of cards I'd been given the previous two years was very hard and I had one hell of a fight to even get to the left photo, I wasn't finished. I wasn't satisfied. I'm not a bucket lister. I'm not a one-and-done competitor. I'm a girl with a mission to one day be extremely competitive in a sport that quite frankly, I've fallen in love with. It's been years in the making to get where I am today, where I was with my last show (right). Coincidently enough, I weigh exactly the same in both photos. It's been a long two seasons for me, I've learned a lot, gained some friends, changed my outlook and set even bigger goals for myself. My point to all of this is that even when others refuse to see the potential in you, you still have to keep the faith, the vision and see that potential in yourself. I'm not perfect, shit, I'm not even to a pro-level physique yet. But I know that good things take time, my goal physique isn't made overnight and that the only person who can make the work happen and get the results I want, is me. No one else. If you want something, be willing to work for it. Don't bullshit yourself with excuses, but also don't get cocky; keep in mind always that you will always have room to improve, be it physically or mentally. It's a journey, not a short race. It never ends. ❤️ Coaching by @teamtammyfitness .
