The pics on the left was just a little over 12 mos apart. I was a vegetarian and running all the time. I joined @bodyuniversity last July and was enjoying taking the group classes with @francinesablan, @sdaddario , @jeffshalemcpft and @calicully_fit at the gym and was seeing results fast! I started my first nutrition plan "life-prep" as we called it, with @calicully_fit in September and learned how to eat to fuel my body. And how to cook 😂 I was always eating healthy but, I learned how to log food and follow a flexible eating routine. Than, I decided I wanted to push myself even more to see what I was capable of. Not knowing exactly what I was getting myself into I decided to sign up for my first bikini competition on a 3 month prep with @tweedyj1 in May. Yikes!! Needless to say I sure got the push I was looking for! I learned to lift on my own-my workouts took about 3 hrs each day for the first week or so as I was following @francinesablan online training and looking up stuff on YouTube and using a journal lol! I know I got a few laughs. This journey has sparked a fire inside me. I have enjoyed every rep, all the late night cooking, the constant eating/drinking and even the cardio! Haha! This has been the hardest thing I have ever done, but it's also the best thing I have ever done. Thank you @taylorsummer_ for introducing me to this world that I was yearning for and didn't even know it!
