Since I missed #TBT here's a #flashbackfriday 😎 β€’

I'm about 99.9% sure I'm not competing in the WBFF this year (leaving that .01% JUST in case πŸ˜‰) but I will be doing some sprint tris and I am considering a powerlifting competition. πŸ‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I adore the WBFF and I will compete again but right now is not an appropriate time. A fitness competition requires 100% dedication and I don't have 100% to give this year. I'm finishing my graduate degree, traveling, and getting married and I have zero desire to be glued to my diet & exercise program. A sprint tri is just plain fun and gives me an easy goal to stay focused on. Powerlifting would also be awesome (I'm not necessarily looking to be competitive the first go) and would keep me focused on lifting more... which is already a goal. β€’

Many girls approach me about prepping them for a show. 95% of them are not in the right place and I will not prep them. A fitness competition should never be used as a catalyst for weight loss or as a way to 'get healthy.' A fitness competition isn't healthy. It's a competition... it's an extreme. Until you've spent a few solid years lifting, showing your metabolism some serious TLC, getting your mind and emotions right, and really nailing down maintenance calories and macros... you have no business doing a show. I refuse to ruin any woman's health for a quick buck. I will turn someone down if they aren't ready. A show is tough. There is little room for error. If you're not in a place where you can dedicate 100%... don't! It's not worth it. πŸ€™πŸ½ Instead, set other goals. Keep yourself active and healthy in other ways. A fitness competition is not the only way to be fit. ✌🏽
