🤦♂️So. This is embarassing.
No one has seen this photo. But I am showing this picture because I just want to let everyone know that you have unlimited potential.This is my mental transformation. Yes mental. The body just followed in its path.
On the left:‼️ I gave up on a lot. I was overworked, underpaid, sleeping 3-4 hours a night, drinking every other day. I had also gone through a tough break up.
We all hit rock bottom sometimes. Real shit. And I fell hard. I gave up on my business. I was unmotivated, and my clients felt it.
I was literally counting the days until the weekend until I could drink some more, party. I didn't realize the adverse effects of everything and I was in denial. Then I picked up the pieces. It wasn't an easy task to put those pieces all together.
On the right:‼️ I found peace with myself, found a new place to train my clients where it wasn't so toxic. I quit drinking and I started busing my ass.
This was a 16 week prep for my show and it was by far the hardest prep I've ever done.
I woke my ass up at 3:30am most days to do cardio, spent 12 hours training people, training myself. Everyday was cooking, dishes, training, working.with no help. I was tired AS FUCK every day, but I wanted it so bad that I didn't give up. I felt like giving up on multiple ocassions, had hard times walking up my stairs because of the lack of energy. BUT I SAID FUCK THAT... I HAVE A GOAL AND I AM DETERMINED TO GET THERE. I survived on COFFEE and sheer WILL POWER.
I finished the FIGHT and ended up taking 2nd in my class and qualifying for nationals next year. And I'm beyond proud of myself that I survived.
THIS WAS MY JOURNEY AND I SHARE IT WITH YOU.
I want to thank all my LOYAL clients for being a HUGE part of my life and sticking with me through the bad and the good. And for understanding that I am human and I have my ups and downs as well.
Without all of you, I would not be where I am today. I love all of you dearly and the bond that we have created is stronger than no other.
I want to thank my friends and family for being so supportive and cheering me on through all the suffering.
Anything is possible. 💯
