My WBFF JOURNEY
Why did I choose to compete? Well I still ask myself this today. I needed a big goal , I needed something to pull me back into my love for fitness.
At the time when I decided to look into competing, I was sat a home feeding my second child who was only about 3 months old at the time. I was reading a magazine about a lady who was 24 and just won her first Bikini comp. I was so jealous! She looked incredible, as I sat there reading this I thought, I could do that. So I kept looking at different women's physiques and how I imagined I could look.
From that day I trained from home. It killed me after having my little girl, every session I would beat myself up thinking just give up. But, after not giving in I transformed myself, still training from home, I got my body back. If anything I was much leaner than I was before. This wasn't just a couple months of training, I trained hard for a year! I was so impressed that I sent my photo's to a Coach, who I asked 'would I have potential to compete'. The answer was yes...
From then on I spent 16 weeks building muscle and working on areas that needed improvement. This 16 weeks of Prep was hardest thing I have ever done! From prepping meals,calorie counting and trying to lose fat in places where it would just not go. But I didn't give up, I wanted this so bad. I was out of my comfort zone, against others that wanted just the same as me. My first ever competition, and I won!!! I smashed it, I thought to myself, WOW, I've done it.
I enjoyed it, loved it, but didn't give myself quite the credit I should of. So this was my only regret, and one I won't make again.
Since May 2016, I haven't stopped. I have kept working on myself enjoying a sustainable, fit and healthy lifestyle. I realised that it was impossible to be in stage ready condition all year round. life is about balance and being able to still enjoy yourself but also learning what is a healthy enjoyment level. I love training so much, it is a therapy for me. I love being a fit Mum, an inspiration to all the women that I train, I could never give it up.
So what's next for me?
I have decided to compete again. I will be doing my Pro Debut on November 3rd 2018 with the WBFF.
