My Journey to My First Competition
For many years now, I have dreamed about competing in a fitness competition. I would tell my family all the time, "someday I'm going to compete!" When the new year rang in....I said to myself, why not do it this year! So I sat down and had a talk with my dad. I told him that I really wanted to do it but I didn't even know really where to begin. I had put on quite a few pounds over the holidays and new that I had a lot of work ahead of me. My dad has always been into weight lifting but never really new a whole lot about nutrition. He said he would be willing to help me in any way he could. I ended up contacting a trainer that I knew, and told him that I wanted to compete and asked if he could help me. We decided I would shoot for the Nutrimart Npc Bikini Classic in June 2012. I started my contest prep diet on January 3rd, 2012.
The first couple of weeks were extremely difficult for me. I was having caffeine withdrawls, headaches, and cravings for all of the junk I had been eating for several months over the holidays. I thought to myself, how am I ever going to do this. I knew that I was going to have to dig deeper than I ever have before to really get to where I wanted to be. I began making some new friends along the way who have competed before and that really helped me a lot. It is now 5 months later, and my competition is in 22 more days. I cannot believe how much my body has changed. I never thought it was possible. I had to see it to believe it. It has been a long road, but I have learned so much and met so many amazing people along the way. So many people have supported me through this journey. No matter what happens, I have already achieved so many of my goals!! I will keep you updated on how the show goes!!
