body building

A lot has changed…

Wow, Its been forever since I last posted. A lot of things have happened some negative, some positive. Simply put, a lot has changed. I have changed, my life, my goals, my mentality, my body. I was contemplating writing a long post about the things that affected my life and made the old idea of sharing my fitness journey, not a priority. Then i decided those things are the negative ones, and even though I’ve learned and moved on I’m not going to waste time on bringing them back.

One thing I will share is my fitness progress  from back in that time. Where I began , where I finish and where i’m at now. A lot did happened in between. But today , I stand stronger and with the goal of enjoying the process more.

Above you can see 3 months (12 weeks) of  a lot of work. With all honesty a few obstacles and bad food choices throughout those 3 months, but kept much of the consistency needed to acquire results. But after these results, many changes took place. Loss of a loved one, Loss of a job, and the realization that the coaching I was receiving to prep for show, wasn’t the healthiest one. You already know I was under a coaching team and we’ll I will leave that topic for another post. In which I will show my current body photos. I let myself go. Stopped working out, stopped eating healthy. I just went through a “I don’t give a &@#%”. Until I guess other aspects of my life took a more positive note and it’s more overall stable is that I think I’ve refocused myself. Damage to my progress had been done but that lack of effort and the negativity was short lived ( short lived for about one year). Now is time to keep that positiveness, drive and determination on high!

My new goal:

                                       Nathalia Melo

I’ve been looking into this new goal for the last month. I’ve read up on it and looked at  many videos on Youtube. I’m excited to share that I will soon start Bikini competition prep. It takes lots of effort to  go under the diet regimen and workout routine that gets your body to it’s maximum physique.  I’m so glad Bikini has become part of the Body building sport in the last few years.  I like the fact that in Bikini competitions women are able to build muscle and tone up but with a softer look. I’ve always loved my curves and wouldn’t change that. I look forward to achieving this goal. I’m still doing trainer/coach search.

After looking into Bikini competitions a few competitors have caught my attention. The first was the IFBB Pro Nathalia Melo. I like her determination and her confidence when she sets foot on the competition stage.  Look at the pic above, doesn’t having that physique translate to hard work! I believe so!!

I will soon post pics of myself!

Great day all!!
