This one took a lot of courage to post.. 1. Because that 4 am morning face is the worst lol and 2. Because the top picture is the biggest (heaviest) I’ve ever been. These progress pictures are exactly 2 months apart. In September I went to the Olympia to support a friend @goddyfit as he stepped on the biggest stage of bodybuilding for the first time. Watching him compete and being surrounded by the top bodybuilders in the world motivated me to get back into prep. I texted my coach and said I didn’t care how long it would take, I wanted to compete again and try to make it to nationals... again. That Monday I weighed in at 174 lbs.. 39 lbs above stage weight and hating myself for letting my weight get so out of control. The first month was like “okay, here we go, back to the old normal”, the second month my training increased, my clientele tripled, school started which added another workout to each day, more aches and pains, less sleep and less carbs and yes it takes it toll but I wouldn’t trade any of it!! Yes my body hurts, yes I’m exhausted, yes my attitude is less than chipper sometimes, but this is what I want and what I’ve committed to and I won’t let anything get in my way or distract me this time. I failed to make it to nationals last time because I was just spent mentally and physically but not this time around. So far I’m 2 months in and down 20 lbs with 4.5 months to go. I didn’t want this to be just another prep where my weight yo-yo’s up and down to get on stage, I wanted this to be a lifestyle change, a healthy progression and some time to tackle the demons that held me back before and so far so good. I’m so grateful for my coach and the program she has designed so far. Yes I work hard but none of this progress would’ve been possible without her. Bring it on prep! There’s no stopping me this time!💪🏽💕 .
