#tbt to doing my first show in oct! With that being said...I have decided to hold off on stepping on stage this spring. I had a great talk with my coach and we both agreed I am mentally not ready to step back on stage. I was not comfortable with my body and thought doing a show and prep would make me feel more confident and have more meaning in my life then just being a mom. I was so wrong. In all honesty I have a lot of skeletons in my closet when it comes to my body image and my mental thoughts on myself and what I see in the mirror. Taking a step back from prep and learning who I am inside and out and falling in love with who I am is now my main priority. I will hopefully step on stage again this fall but priorities change. The best advice I can give to someone who is going to prep is make sure you Are in love with who you are inside and out before you step on stage! It can turn to a really dark place post show if you didn’t love the body you had before competing. Love yourself first! Then the rest will fall into place. . .
