Ahh, I remember the good ol’ days of prepping for my competitions. I have lost that desire at the moment. I have a lot going on and things I’m working through. We will call it a rough patch because I’m certain I will get past it. I’m glad I was able to document my journey with pictures to look back on. It’s motivating and inspirational for me to look back at what I can accomplish. Life can get crazy, and we can forget how we felt at the moment. Pictures and written words do a lot for bringing you back to those moments. I was very proud to be on that stage, and all the girls were amazing.
I may not be competing at the moment, but I still have lasting friendships that grew from my time in prep. It’s hard to explain all the emotions to friends and family who many not understand it. They don’t understand why you decided to put yourself through such a strict diet and intense workout program. Having a group of friends who are going through the same thing was essential in keeping me sane. I could have made it without the support, but it does help.
Since I have so much time on my hands while I’m sitting here on the couch recovering from my ankle, I decided I should move a lot of my videos from my old YouTube channel to the current one and in the process I want to share these videos with you too. It’s pretty cool to look back at videos while I was in the processes of competition prep and see all the changes I was going through. There will be a lot more of this to come so I hope you enjoy re-watching the process as much as I am.
