Houston, TX 2018
I started out just wanting to get back into shape and find once again something that I could do for myself to make me happy. That has led to competing, to becoming a pro, motivator, personal trainer, posing coach, judge, guest poser, mentor, assistant event coordinator, trophy girl, assistant promoter to deputy director of a natural bb federation. And this began around the over the hill age of 40! The greatest thing in this journey besides meeting lifelong friends, is that my dad got the chance to see me follow in his steps but go further with it. I always looked up to him in so many ways, so the coolest part was that he got to see me on stage doing the very thing he loved. I can still hear him in my head when I was competing for my pro card in physique/fitbody.."You look great baby!" I WAS LIT THEN!
I never had the chance to see him on stage in person, but I now imagine that he's still in the audience cheering me on. There's nothing like having moments like that. So as I go off the Cali this week, I'll be replaying our conversations about the sport in my head and hoping I do well.
I've had quite a journey in this sport and yet I feel there's still more. As to what that is exactly, no clue. I just keep going. If dad saw this pic, I'm sure it would be a favorite of his.
So never think it's too late to do Anything that you haven't accomplished yet. No matter how small or big that goal may be, it takes consistency to make it work. #believe
