Ok SO... !!!
to #compete AGAIN ?? Or not to compete ?? Lol 🤔🙃
That being said .... •
The photo on the left is a pic of (one of many) shows I did .. 2008, ➕10 spray tans 😂
The right is a much more current shoot ➕about 10 lbs of muscle ...
..post a very difficult divorce, post two kids ❤️❤️, and a hell of a lot of persistence!! Lol
Yes , I’ve been doing this a heck of a long time .. I’ve watched my body change , endure, be broken.. and then be put back together .
At 41 , I am stronger now than I’ve ever been in my ENTIRE life ,not only physically but also mentally .
I don’t train anymore to look a certain way. If I did a show now .. it would be just to accomplish it again...to see where I land cause I might be curious ...which is fine..but for me , ultimately, my goals overall have changed . I prefer to train to reach performance goals .. to get stronger .. to get faster .. to develop more skill ... to be better at moving under load , explosively, as well as technically . That’s what drives me. And when I meet those goals .. I’ll have different ones to meet .
I know that to get where I want to be in the next part of my ride, I need to fuel my body the right way .. I need to protect my body and I need to listen to it . I’m not where I want to be skill or strength wise.. I’m not even close , but I’m ok with that . I don’t ever want to be in that “arrived “ state ... I want to be right here .....in the middle of it .....hoping to inspire ...always striving ...staying focused .. always pushing .. always learning ..and always appreciating. 🙏🏻This is where I grow . People stop moving when they ‘arrive’ . If you stop there .. then ‘arriving’ becomes poison.. it becomes debilitating .. but as long as someone out there can do more .. then it just means that it’s possible for me too .. and THAT just means that I’ve got more work to do .🔥🖤💪🏼
~You know that I love quotes ... and this one from Marcus Aurelius really hits home . “Do not think that what is hard for you to master is humanly impossible; but if a thing is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach”
