Determined to be the last woman standing.....up on that stage.
Hit a new low weigh in this morning; it was what I thought my stage weight would be. But after chatting with coach we both agree lines still could get deeper so we forge on.
I didn’t get into this bodybuilding thing to “dabble” in it.
It’s not about the experience, or getting my body to this level of leanness just to see if I COULD do it. I don’t need a contest prep phase to test my mental capacity - I know full well what I’m capable of.
I DO THIS because I am obsessed with bodybuilding, the history, the stage, the process.
BUT I’m also COMPETITIVE. I will never stand here and say I don’t do this TO WIN.
I didn’t dink around about my health last year I went full force in every measure to set myself up to BE HERE. There wasn’t a price tag for what it took, and there isn’t a price tag for what it will continue to take.
I’M ALL IN, Always have been, Always will be.
This leads me to something I’m truly passionate about, and luckily I have a freakin smart ass bestie 🤓@em_dunc putting something incredible together. She’s getting down to the nitty gritty here of competing. The realities, the expenses, the measures it takes, no holds barred. It’s an an anonymous google form / survey competitors can fill out about their contest preps.
She’s putting together the realities of it all for those who may want to “dink” around in this but TRULY need to see the entire scope. The link to the form is in her IG BIO.
I ask EVERY single competitor following me to fill this out. It’s our job to help those who are on the fence truly grasp what it takes.
The last question really hits home for me. “Would you compete again under all of the circumstances listed above?” And my ANSWER is, and always will be; HELL YES.
No matter the length of off season I need, no matter the depths of a diet I have to go or aggressive things have to get (shoutout to @laurinconlin’s Post yesterday - I’m loud about this SIDE of things). While I am still competing, I will always strive to be the last woman standing on that stage.
