The Big Switch

Well it has been about 2 months since I stepped on stage at the USA’s. I prepped a total of 19 weeks and completed 3 competitions within 6 weeks of each other! It definitely had its highs and lows, but I am so happy and accomplished for completing each competition with everything I had! I am now looking back 2 months later and feeling so much better about my placings and the overall experience. It took me a while to get over the way I felt after, feeling as though I wasn’t given two looks while being on stage, but at the end of the day, the competition isn’t always about how you place, it is about the things you learn along the way. I absolutely love competing, I love the thrill it gives me and the way it pushes me harder and harder every time. However, sometimes we need to be real with ourselves. As I look over my photos I have to say my conditioning is fabulous, but my size is my weakness. I could put more muscle on and the judges would probably lean towards my physique more or I can accept my body where it is at (which is where I am happy) and try something new! I am going to give bikini a shot! So this will be my new challenge and goal. I have not yet decided on when, but I have made my decision firm, that I will step on stage again, but this time I will be a sassy bikini girl :) I am really excited to give it a shot!

Other than this switch from Figure to Bikini, a lot has been going on in my life and it has been amazing! I am in a great place in my life right now and for the 1st time I feel very confident about my physique, post competition. For all of you competitors out there, you know what I am talking about. We can all go through the post-comp blues now and then, but I have not felt this. If anything I feel like it is easier to stay on track now than the last few weeks of my prep.  I have been taking my business to another level and my clients are getting amazing results (both online clients and in-person clients)! I am also prepping three girls, one for Nationals (Figure) and the other two for their first bikini competitions. They are doing great and I am enjoying the journey with them! Stay tuned for their results.
