Heleen's diary  ☆ Captured in photographs: this is my life 🗺 the Netherlands 🏆 Fox Gym Rotterdam 2nd JBC '17🇱🇺 4th SOC '17🌍 🔛 from bikini to figure

She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn't simple. Sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say. She had flaws and that was okay. And when she was down, she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best.

She was unstoppable and she took anything she wanted with a smile.

Never stop looking up.

Sooo last week has been all about rest and revovery. I haven't seen the inside of the gym since I ended up in the hospital this past weekend. I'm still on meds fulltime, too, so I hope to get back to working out next week...
I used to worry a lot when something like this would happen. But I've learnt that the worrying usually does more harm than the not-working-out. So instead of worrying I spend my time and energy on the good things, like enjoying the weather and working from home whenever I can. I'll be back in the gym as soon as my body allows me to ✌

I'm aiming for the "she's a badass and cute as hell, but I wouldn't touch her without asking" look.

Looking back at these stage pics I cannot help but be super proud of what we - coach @maartenfvos and I - accomplished over the past 1.5 year. I worked my ass off and brought my absolute best to that stage, something I couldn't have done without him by my side. It's these pics that give me my motivation to put in all the work necessary to bring another improved package to my next competition, even if at this point I don't know when that will be. Being off season for an unknown amount of time can be challenging but looking at these pics gives me an unknown drive to work and improve!

Oh and look at that smile. It says more than I can even begin to explain in a caption. #shinebrightlikeadiamond 💎


There is always a reason to smile. Find it. 💖

After not seeing the big boss @maartenfvos for 2 weeks I was happy to be back at my favourite playground @foxgymfam for an intense back sesh. My workout consisted of compound- as well as isolation exercises to work on that desired thick, v-tapered back!

There is def a lot going on underneath that off-season fluff 🐷 And we're just getting started! #biggerisbetter #foxgymathlete #frombikinitofigure

Life only comes around once. So do what makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile.

#throwback to zhe shredded days pre-contest! I would be lying if I said I didn't miss this shape, but I'm currently working on a bigger, better physique.

Families are like branches on a tree. We all grow in a different direction yet our roots remain as one.

And when the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind.

Smile often. Think positively. Say thanks. Laugh loudly. Love others. Dream big. 🌺

Left: March 2016, 6th place ⏩ Right: March 2017, 2nd place 🏆 Damn proud of the progession we've made in just a 5 month off-season inbetween.
Now it's time for a new chapter, a new approach. Currently off-season for an unspecified time, ready to come back bigger and better when the time is right!

#throwback to a little ab checking 2 weeks out for my first competition of 2017! #rockhardabs #sixpack

At this point I was blind to my own progression and convinced that I needed to shred a lot more. Looking back at this I really don't understand why I was so insecure about my shape. #foolish That's the prep mindfuck kicking in, right there. I'm lucky to have a coach whom I completely trust and who just plain tells me to stop bitching and trust the process. At that point in prep, that's exactly what I need and he knows it. I know he would always tell me the truth about where I stand, so I can tell myself it's just all in my head when I feel insecure.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is: contest prep is not only about physical progress. It's also about overcoming your insecurities and fears, challenging yourself mentally in various ways. Going through contest prep can help you grow mentally as well, if you allow yourself to!
