Last year I was in a very different mindset than I am today. I was insecure, and lost. I hated myself and could never get skinny enough. I did tons of cardio and barely ate anything. I tried every fad diet out there and constantly thought about what I was eating. I starved myself and then I broke down and ate whatever I could get my hands on and hated myself for it after. I don’t think a lot of people know what I was going through, but I was battling a war inside my head. And I was unhappy! The last year I’ve been working hard on myself, both mentally and physically. I started lifting weights, highly motivated by someone special in my life. I was Still very obsessed with what I ate, but it was getting better. In May this year I decided I wanted to compete. I was inspired by a few of my friends and their transformation and I thought “well if they can, so can I”! Knowing myself I knew that I needed something BIG to motivate me, so I signed up for the NPC Las Vegas Classic, bought my ticket and got a coach. After 2 months with online training, I couldn’t afford it anymore, but there was no way I was giving up! So I read every tip I could, learned how to do it myself and continued my journey! And I did it! I could possibly looked better and more ripped on stage, but I did it. I flew across the world and stood on that stage! Which is a victory alone. Now I’ve gained back 4-5kgs after the show, and my definition isn’t like it was, but it doesn’t matter. For the first time in my life I can say that I’m happy and at peace! No matter what’s going on I know I can handle it! Fitness has changed my life…and given me a booty.
Whatever it is that you want to do in life, just start doing it. Set a goal, and take baby steps every day to get there. I am a firm believer that anything is possible. And the only one who can make it happen is YOU!
