Leyla Briggs  NPC SLC overall champ ☝🏼NQ bikini athlete πŸ‘™ 2017 Jr Nats top three πŸ† University of Utah Pre Law βš–οΈ complete nutrition athlete discount code: mj7mwf πŸ’ͺ🏼

As my season winds down I can't help but reflect on how far I have come! Here's a little #transformationtuesday From left to right a totally new individual has formed. Top left picture was when I first started getting into fitness. I was definitely thicker. Move to the right and that was 15 months later and about 30 pounds lighter, when I first decided to compete, move to the right and that was at my very first npc bikini competition. After that I took an off season to focus on growing so I could bring a fuller package. (Bottom left)I put on 25 pounds on the scale. This is why focusing too much on the scale can be so detrimental. My improvement was so hard mentally but was so worth it. The picture after was 18 weeks later and right before I stepped on stage for my first national level jr nationals and took third place at 16 pounds heavier than my first stage weight. The point is, every goal is going to provide a different physique. I myself definitely have a harder time being okay with that as do many other competitors but if you want to grow, If you want to win, you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. ☝🏼️πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ†

It's Friday, but I slept in so I'm not flexin' πŸ˜‚πŸ’€

Sundays are meant for #selfies, right?

Had to repost from @missbikini_pharmd for this #flashbackfriday can't believe it's already been a month since jr Nats. These were the top five in our class, and this my first national show. Literally so many fun moments have gone into this competition season I'm beyond grateful to have been a part of it. As my season begins to calm down I can't help but be incredibly grateful for all those who have supported, loved, and cheered me on. Team mates, friends, family and my amazing coaches have all helped make this possible. Love you all! β€οΈπŸ’• Still in love with my suit by @platinumbonnie, I've used the same one for every show and fall more and more in love with it every time. πŸ‘™

Still feelings confident with my direction and plans provided by my awesome coaches @shaneheugly and @theugly πŸ†

And although there are hard moments, hours, weeks, and even months, I still love this sport. πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ’•t

"As a female you shouldn't train upper body as much as you do. You'll start to look more masculine" -random guy at gym
Yeah, guys let me tell ya, at 5'1 and about 105 lbs I'm super concerned about getting too masculine. But apparently I'm already masculine and at great risk for becoming more so πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This was my #mondaymotivation today. Don't let people tell you who you are, or what you should look like. Go out there and be the person you want to be, sculpt your body into what YOU want it to be and embrace every moment that gets you there. πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

#tbt to my second show ever and first of 2017. Easily one of the best nights of my life. After having multiple health issues during this prep, (surgeries, lingering injuries, seizures, and concussions) It felt so rewarding to be able to step on stage and taking home the overall was just icing on the cake. πŸŽ‚πŸ°πŸ‘™πŸ‘ πŸ’•

It's #humpday and what better way to celebrate than a #transformation pic?! The photo on the left was the first check in I ever sent @shaneheugly. The middle photo was my first show in October 2016. The photo on the right was two weeks ago at Jr nationals. Our goal since October was to come in with bigger, rounder, fuller glutes. I would definitely say we accomplished just that! I can't wait to see what another year of hard work will bring me. πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ’•πŸ‘

Competed at the 2017 NPC team Universe competition in New Jersey this weekend! Since I always post updates here it is: I got my ass handed to me! I placed a lot lower than I would have liked but am entirely at peace with it! Was it hard going from a third place in Chicago to such a low placing? You betcha! But do I find understand that learning how to lose is important as well? Yes! As always, thank you to my amazing friends, family, sponsors and coaches! I love you all! Regardless of my placing it's been such a fun weekend with such fun teammates and I wouldn't trade it for a thing! πŸ’ͺπŸΌβ€οΈπŸ‘ŠπŸ»

Walking into this week like πŸ˜πŸ’ƒπŸ» with a sassy little smirk on my face. Ready to take on another week. πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ» #mondaymotivation

This Picture has already been posted but it seriously is too funny not to get posted again. πŸ˜‚ feeling like this sweet lady deserves all the appreciation posts in the world. πŸ™ŒπŸ» she steps on stage again this week in New Jersey and I am seriously so excited for her! She is the epitome of hard work, true friendship, and selflessness. Love ya, big groot πŸ˜˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Happy happy #humpday πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ growing these glutes has been the struggle but this pancake bum is slowly getting less pancakey πŸ™ŒπŸ» I still have a it way to go, but seeing progress like this is literally so exciting!

Current motivation: beat this girl. Not just physically, but mentally. Come in each time stronger and more level headed. @shaneheugly often talks about "mental muscle" I didn't realize how weak mine was until I started improving. It's no secret that competing can be difficult physically, but for me, the mental aspect is what has been the most difficult. I have a hard time believing in myself! As time goes on, I improve, and plan on keeping it up one day at a time πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ†#motivationmonday
