From 2013 to 2015, I had the competition bug, BAD. I competed about every 3 months & threw countless hours into training, posing practice, meal prep...as well as the physical and mental dedication it required. Why? I was in love with the process of challenging myself. May of last year, I swore left and right that I'd be hanging up my bikini and heels for awhile. Thinking that my time on stage had come and gone- that I would never have the conditioning, my loose skin hurt my chances, or it just wasn't meant to be. I took 6 months to gather myself, focus on the success of my business and most importantly, my family. It was a much needed hard reset to the indigenous prep life I'd become so used to living. Something snapped inside though..."why give up after years of investing your time?" I never stopped loving the stage or the art of competing. I knew I was capable...so I thought, why the fuck not?! I'm in a better place and not hung up on my past anymore. I gave it another go and blew all my previous performances away. The difference? My heart, mind and body were 100%. I was in tune with myself. It's absolutely true: when you're in the right state of mind, and have full control of your actions, thoughts and emotions, you can do anything. This is me in the best state of my own being as a competitor. I was aware of myself, confident and most of all, HAPPY.
And for those who are asking, yes...I will be back on stage this year, because this is going to be greatest one yet. What is my why for competing? I love it, and expect nothing out of it because the journey itself is the true prize. Whatever comes of it, is just a result of my passion for this sport. 👊🏼🙂 @teamedge1 @ingridromerobikinis @cosmetae_beauty @evogennutrition @all_that_glitters_gems @cheatthebeach_bikinisnmartinis @theshoefairy_ @simply.prepped @musclecontest @spectrumfitnessproductions
