Never give up.
These photos are 3 years apart, I was blissfully happy when I was larger, eating whatever I wanted, being a ‘cardio bunny’ everyday and working 10 hour days as a chef in a health & wellness resort kitchen. In the photo on the right I was emotionally drained, but physically strong, still happy with life, eating healthy and lifting weights several times a week. ️
The span of time in between I played around with cardio and weights but wasn’t serious about changing my body composition or diet. This photo on the right was also after my second NPC bikini show, and my smile reflects all of the hard work and dedication it took to get there. ️
Life is about balancing the good and the bad, the highs and the lows. I look back on these photos now and I am so thankful for all of the experiences from each of them. I have grown so much mentally, physically and emotionally since both of these pictures where taken. Changes take time, and patience is key. There will be so many road blocks along the way but never, ever give up. .
