Back when competing was all about me and my own journey.
Pics from my first show 11 years ago
I wasn’t a personal trainer and I wasn’t even a member of a gym when I started competing either😱
I trained from my home gym only as I’ve always been a rather shy and quiet person and the thought of a gym never appealed to me at all thinking gym’s were just full of massive guys that were all on steroids 🙈🙈 I taught myself how to train and learned how to diet from reading Bodybuilding magazines, I bought them all as soon as they came out.
Doing and competing in my first show was terrifying to me being a no body and never even trained in a real gym so no one knew who I was or where I was from, I didn’t know what to expect or weather or not how I looked was even close to being good enough to walk out on a public stage in next to no clothes on🤔 I think I went to the toilet 100 times that day and is probably why I was in such crazy dry condition.
I learned my poses from magazines and made up my posing routine in the week of the show hoping I wouldn’t look like a complete idiot doing it on the day.
When I was back stage and first walked out everyone in the place was coming up to me saying how dry and lean I was and asked how did I do it🤔 I assumed we all did the same thing from what I had learned in magazines which was just eat lots of eggs chicken and broccoli all day and don’t eat anything else and that what I thought you had to do 😂😂 so I never had a cheat meal or carb days or any of that because I never realised I could or was meant to so in doing that my conditioning was insane.
I think I stopped the place when I walked out to compete especially when it was announced I train from home and I only dieted from 6-8 weeks 😱
Needless to say I won both my lineups and went on to win my first 5 shows in a row until I started to listen to other people about things I should do which in the end cost me my first loss doing what some one high in the industry said I needed to do in my peak Week which made me hold water and lose.
Since that day I’ve always done things my way as I know my body best. Point of this post? Sometimes you just need to have faith in yourself.
Good Evening 💕
This has been the longest week I swear 🤣 do you ever get weeks like that that seem to drag and go on and on and on and on ?! 🤣 it’s not been a bad week! Just pretty relentless! I’ve been struggling to stay on track with my food but I’ve been maintaining my gym sessions so could be worse ! I’m not gonna beat myself up over it! hope your weeks going well and you are staying on track! ( if not that’s okay too! ;) )
Oh hey look who’s back (@alenefit for those of you who live under a rock)! Hit a nice lil shoulder (mostly) day (she had some back in her workout, we did our usual and didn’t quite do the same things🤷🏻♀️) on the last day of exams! I’ve got one left at 6pm tonight, then winter break begins!
• Dumbbell military press- 10, 8, 6, 6
• Decline rear delt row to decline front raise hold- 4x8 w/ 3 count pause
▶️Rope tricep extension- 3x15

*go light on this you’ll die*
How was everyone else’s finals week? What percentage of the campus do you think was cracked out on adderall or vyvanse? What was the average decrease in GPA across the board for everyone on average? These are stats I want to know🧐 I started with about 20 monsters and now I only have 1 left😟 #tragic
Irgendwie zerbrechlich, aber doch so stark 🤔
Am Ende der Wettkampfvorbereitung wurde mir oft gesagt, dass ich dürr, ausgehungert und zerbrechlich aussehe. Zu der Zeit habe ich es selbstverständlich nie so empfunden.
Genau das ist es, was andere sehen. Doch was steckt hinter all dem? Hinter einer Diät, in solchem Ausmaß?
Stärke, die von innen kommt, für den Wettkampf und auch besonders für die Zeit danach:
Disziplin, Fokus, Willenkraft, Ehrgeiz, Fleiß und der Blick auf's Positive in allem.
In all meinen Wettkampfvorbereitungen ist mir überhaupt erst bewusst geworden, was hinter diesen Eigenschaften steckt - was es bedeutet diese gezielt einzusetzen. Inzwischen weiß ich, dass es Eigenschaften sind, die uns in jeden Lebenslagen voranbringen 💪
Our children look to us as role models. If we make it a priority to live a healthy lifestyle, they will follow in our footsteps 🦶
- figure out your ‘why’ and write it down
- don’t quit on yourself. Hold yourself to the same standards you hold others to
- exercise! Yes, you gotta get off your ass :)
- schedule your workout so you make time for it
- food prep! Have healthy snacks cut up and ready so it’s quick and easy to grab
- stick to the outer walls of the grocery store. The inside ain’t so great ;)
- remember: it will be hard. But you can do anything if you want it bad enough!
Make the health of your family and you a priority in 2019!!
