Competition Prep - 4 Weeks Out to Show Day

















In 4 weeks I will be rocking the stage at Fitness Atlantic in the transformation division. Wow! I can't believe I am at the 4 weeks out mark already. The time really has flown by. I am full of butterflies trying to go with the flow. Starting now is where my anxiety disorder is really going to start testing me and I won't let it win. I can't let it win. Throughout this weight loss and fitness journey I have learned that I need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable because nothing great ever comes from playing it safe in your comfort zone. I am 29 days out from doing something that I never thought I would ever be able to do or would even dream about doing just 5 years ago. Standing on a stage in a tiny bikini in front of hundreds of people strutting my stuff and showcasing what I have worked so hard to achieve for the past 4 years. It all seems surreal. I am slowly becoming that person I never thought I could be with anxiety... anxiety so severe that it is officially diagnosed a disorder and have almost claimed my life multiple times. I can't believe this is me and that I am going to do this. My mind is absolutely blown right now.

Hang on tight, it's going to be a crazy ride...





I have had a lot of extra time than I normally do to spend some time on the blog today. It feels really great to be able to just sit down and spend some quality time on the blog without being rushed. There is nothing more relaxing than being able to sit down in a comfy spot and write/share your thoughts. It's so comforting. When I don't get a lot of time to be able to sit down in deep thought with concentration and comfortably write without feeling rushed and throwing together a post in a hurry, then it stops becoming something that I enjoy because I don't get to do it the way I want to. I still continue to fight through the times when it's not enjoyable because I know that it will not always be that way. I let things get the best of me and my time and it is my responsibility to make time for the things that I enjoy.
