Can you tell I'm kinda excited?
This is the week! 5 days to Universe, and don't worry, you will hear all about it til then.
I am this excited for a few reasons.
1. I will be in one of my favorite places I'm a few days - MIAMI, and on top of that, I get to hang out with some of my favorite fit people in the world.
2. I get to wear some of my own creations and see them shine under the bright lights of the stage.
3. Most importantly, I actually made it.
6 months ago I was super depressed. I tried to "think positive" but the negative took me over. Despite what people think they knew about how I was getting along, the struggle to get out of my rut was very real. Let's just say, I put on a few pounds because most of my nutrition came from wine and I did more than my fair share of sleeping.
Being as competitive as I am, I would have typically felt pressure to go back and defend my Fitness Universe Sports Model title. This time it's not even about that. I needed this show just to give me something constructive to focus on and get back to good habits and winning at this game called LIFE again.
Yes, it is true. Even someone who actually loves the gym can struggle to get there and get moving. But I PROMISE, no matter how much you do, it makes you feel better. I'm not talking about physically, but mentally, which I think is more valuable.
I'm so thankful to be out of the place I was. I am particularly thankful to a few sponsors, partners, and trainer that actually knew what was up and helped me fake it til I could make it again.
