From 22 to 27 years, I focused on becoming the healthiest version of myself possible.
This included exercising, eating well, having treats only once a week and focusing on rebuilding my stomach lining.
I had a moderately good relationship with food but still focused on 'good' or 'bad' food types limiting my 'bad' foods to the weekend.
But I still loved trying every single fad diet that would come out; I would give most of them a shot. From super foods, keto, paleo; you name it and I've probably researched it or tried it.
Some of it was to make sure I understood the diets, so when a client would ask I would be able to educate them not only from a book but from experience; but let's be real for a minute looking back my relationship with food was probably worse than I thought.
However, for the first time in my life I was happy with my body.
I felt good
I felt fit
I felt happy
I never thought I would be able to say that, but I felt like I was in a good position in my fitness journey. My stomach has pretty good and my allergies were under control, as I understood them better.
I would spend most of my spare time making healthy treats with organic foods or super foods. I would go for amazing runs, loved training basic weights with a lot of rehabilitation and activation exercises & generally was HAPPY.
So...... I decided I wanted a challenge.
Again, wanted to be educated in my career, so I looked into one of the most popular sports - 'Body Building', I decided it would be a great challenge & a form of education to go through the process of competing in a bikini competition.
So at the beginning of 2016 I decided that my year goal would be to compete.
Stay Tuned for Moment Six
