So here we are, just a few days away before I take the stage in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Filled with exhaustion, fear, excitement and hope, I will be the biggest and best I’ve been yet.
These last few days have been interesting, from my day-to-day body response, to checking in with my coaches AJ & IFBB Pro Nikki Sims every morning in person. They are beyond meticulous and are in my ear every hour it seems. From pictures and my body weight as soon as I get out of bed, to me driving over to their home as soon as I eat my first meal every morning . A lot has gone into contest preparation and at times, it’s been difficult to balance it all with everyday life.
Of course, if you want something bad enough, you will do anything it takes. Luckily for me, I have an amazing support system from deep core family, my coaches and wonderful friends who have been there for me in many inspiring ways.
This competitive journey is about us and not me.
I know this competition means a lot to my coaches, friends and family who have watched me struggle and dig deep to achieve the body I want to display on July 21st . The journey is just beginning, truth be told, but I am already so greatful for a lot of things.
Hopefully, I can bring home that coveted IFBB Pro card on Thursday and share a few tears with those that have been there through this process.
