(Left - 13th Oct) PRO debut ➡️➡️➡️ (right - 23rd sept) Last amateur competition.
There is 3 weeks (and a lot of rest & CARBS) between these two photos 👌🏻💜
Motivate yourself with the need to beat yourself,
Not with the desire to beat others 💯
Sometimes the most valuable lessons come out of the hardest situations.
After being sick and only being able to get in 5-6 training sessions in the last 2 week i was feeling very upset and defeated. As a competitor (and perfectionist), the idea of going into any competition knowing i wasn't able to give it my absolute all doesn't sit well with me. It was undoubtedly the hardest 2 weeks of my whole prep this year. There was a few times i second guessed myself and didn't think i would be able to do it...
For me, competing isn't about beating anyone else. Its about beating myself, EVERY SINGLE TIME. And going into this thinking i couldn't do that was very upsetting.
It was a big challenge for me to be able to sit back and actually listen to my body and REST!! To trust that i had given it absolutely everything i had and to trust that i would be able to make it all work.... and i did!
This prep has been a lot of trials for me and i went into this competition completely different to any previous one. I actually let my body have the adequate rest it needed and i incorporated a different pre comp method to what i have always done. To say i'm proud of what i was able to achieve is an understatement. I have never felt so good on comp day, full of energy and excitement to get on that stage.
These last 2 weeks have been a massive learning experience for me and i wouldn't change a thing. It has shown me i need to trust myself and my body a lot more. I genuinely believe, if you put in the work the results will show.
I could not be any happier with what i brought to that stage. I had the absolute time of my life up these. This is my passion, my dreams, and i bloody love it 😍👑💎❤️ #transformationtuesday #iifym #flexibledieting #ironaddictanitrogym #suppsrus #teamorange #ohanahair #67bikinis #growsenailsandtanning @suppsrus @jodiegrowse @67bikinis @icn_victoria @ohanahairdressing
