Hey all! So today I’m going into some personal details and stories of my experiences
with my figure/bikini competitions. I personally loved competing and it was a goal of mine
– but there were some up’s & down’s along the way.
You all know I am super honest – hence #honesthour,
and I wanted to talk about things I’ve experienced along with my decisions
to focus on becoming a better athlete and not worrying so much about appearance.
Hopefully you’ll take the time to listen to see where I’m coming from!
I know, 30 minute VLOG…
I am proud of what I’ve accomplished;
You’ll hear more in the video,
but the picture on the left (spring 2011) was when I first competed.
I wasn’t too educated on how to properly “diet” and I basically just cut a bunch of things
out of my diet until I was at an un-healthy body weight
(without really knowing that I was being “unhealthy”)
The picture on the right (spring 2012) is me competing in the same show, 1 year later.
I focused on fueling my workouts, refueling with the proper nutrition,
eating balanced #powermeals, & NOT FEARING THE FAT!
I challenged myself to eat more healthy fats;
something I FEARED the year before.
I did a VLOG here about that topic before my competition.
I just am passionate about helping others with their journeys
& sometimes it’s hard to put ourselves out there
but if I can inspire 1 person through my story, then I’m happy.
This VLOG was inspired by this article
Enjoy your day!
