I've always had an athletic build but found it almost embarrassing growing up. Few teenage girls want to be 160 solid lbs. Since having by son in 2010 I had to take a step back and really reevaluate my fitness. Getting back to the gym was a starter but after loosing all the baby weight and an additional 35lbs I was weak. I tried to enjoy being that little girl I envied growing up but its just not me. My journey over the last few years has really led me to embrace my build and commit to being the best me I can be both on and off the stage.
Why I Love it
I love the push to lift harder, to go that one more rep, to make it just a little longer, a little further.. It's my crack. I'm addicted to the feeling of accomplishment and well being. I missed being competitive.. having something to drive toward and push for personally. I've recently stepped into the world of bodybuilding and I find that I'm completely captivated by the ways of the human body. How it grows and reacts to everything we put in or take out. I LOVE IT!
