People have been asking me what my plans are at this point in my journey and I thought I'd share them.
I am feeling more motivated than ever and extremely committed to improving. I have come to terms with my weak points and use them for motivation day in and day out.
If you had asked me a year ago I would never have thought I'd say what I am about to say but I really want to take my competing to another level.
I've discovered a real passion and fulfillment in competing and am committed to taking it very seriously. My goal is to one day become an IFBB pro but of course that means I have a lot of work to do because thats elite, next level, and totally top notch within the sport.
So, my goal is to stay lean and keep conditioning while continuing to grow and improve where necessary (more glute and hamstring work especially) then compete again in 2018. I am going to be following the guidance of my coaches of course but I would love to do multiple shows in 2018.
Today I checked the NPC site and it looks like I'm actually qualified for National level shows which I didn't realize but I'm SO excited about (double checking this because I'm super diligent but asked my coach what it all means so we will see)
I have so much respect for the journey and the sport and I truly have developed this love for every step of it. I will never under value the immense amount of commitment and energy required to really become next level in this sport as there really are only so many pro cards.
Ultimately, it's about fulfilling my passion and goals everyday and this sport allows me to grow on every level while feeling totally connected to my true self.
I want to continue this journey and path for myself with consistent and constant improvement and love embracing every present moment along the way.
I have never been more motivated or inspired in my life and I am stepping into a new identity by committing to the elite lifestyle required to actually BE elite.
I will keep you all posted along the way.
