I'm a crazy, exhausted, hangry, biotchhh😬. Thinking about stepping on stage? Well let me be real with you for a second here! There are a few things to think about and consider before going for it..... 1.) It costs a fuck ton of money💰💰!! Do you have miuimun $2000 to start? If not than I'd take some time to save! (Here is a small break down of cost: Coach $1000 or more, posing practice $200 or more, entering shows $300, suit/shoes/bling $600+,tan $120 per show, makeup 100per show, travel expenses 500 or more, supplements $400 or more,gym membership $250, plus your healthy food is going to cost a ton more). 2.)physically it will leave you drained! Everyone is different, but personally my body dies a little everyday during prep as I put it through 3 hour or plus workouts 7 days a week. My body begs for a break & unfortunately I can't give it one because I know that also means I'm letting the other girl get ahead. It can sometimes leave competitors with bad injuries as well!
3.)The diet😒!!! This part sucks the most. Your body for the first while will go through withdrawals of certain things you had to cut out! You will want to cheat, but unfortunately nutrition is 80% of your progress so it's not an option unless your willing to settle. You can barley go out and eat because you can't take the chances of slipping off plan.
4.) it's such a selfish sport. You will have to put this above all else. So forget about having a social life & this sport is actually proven to tear up the most relationships💔. 5.) mentally it will slowly destroy you, if you are not already strong! You work your ass off and the scale still doesn't move, you see other competitors and instantly compare yourself, you rarely feel ready or good enough, you will question everything and it can at times only increase mental illness😰. 6.)After stepping on stage you will always compare what you looked like at the moment to how you did on stage. And you can't because that look isn't maintainable for anyone, that look is 4hours in the gym, malnourished diet, no water, no sodium, but you'll still try and compare. Not to mention most people go into a binge mode🙋🏽 then gain the weight you worked so hard to get
