I can still remember exactly just how drained, hungry, tired, frustrated and shitty I felt back when this was taken last year.
As much as I'm glad to have gone through the past 3 contest preps, I'd be lying if I said I miss it. Almost a month post-contest now I'm so glad that I'm back to ENJOYING life.
Just things like not having the house constantly smell like fish... not constantly watching the clock anticipating my next meal... being able leave the house and not have to worry about bringing a bag full of tupperware...not having my shitty mood affect my relationships with family and friends.
There's something people won't really get until they compete. You are in prison when you compete and that's kind of the best way I can describe it. So when you get out, it's kind of like everything is just new to you and you start really appreciating life and that's kind of where I'm at right now.
