I found this picture of me competing at the Arnold's from a couple years ago.
@nicoledoumont and I drove down to Columbus, Ohio for it. I remembered that it was very cold and there was freezing rain. At the border, I had to put my prepared in the garbage since I wasn't allowed to take food across😒. I ended up buying tons of cooked chicken breast and cooked white potato from #wendys 😂😂 And to top that, I was placed dead last in my class. Was I upset? Absolutely. Nicole was there to help me get my shit together. Even though I was not happy about my placing, I learned a lot of myself that day.
Don't despair. Don't fret. There will always be more shows to compete in. So in the mean time, back to the drawing board and make the necessary improvements. Become better than your last best 👍.
