How Making Peace with Food, My Body, and My Goals Set me Up for Long-Term Success I Used to Dream About

April 06, 20202 min read


In the past I’d struggle with the post-show blues; rebounding, feeling lost, & accepting body changes

In 2015 I committed myself to making peace with food & my body after gaining 30lbs in 3 weeks post my first show thinking I’d never compete again

In that time I immersed myself in personal development, mentorship, business development, & my degrees

I went away from studying dietetics (which was a tough transition since I’d already been at it for over a year plus emphasized it in my AS degree) & committed to Psychology as that was my true calling & passion, to help others make peace with themselves through understanding, awareness, love, & action!

I ended up getting back into competing because I realized it was not the problem & I was not the problem; It was something that aligned with my lifestyle & I had the power to create solutions & commitments!

When I started Confessions of a Bikini Pro Podcast I saw a deeper need in the community which made me realize I needed to take my mission of BUILD MORE THAN JUST A BODY to BODY-BUILDERS

I devoted my degree time reporting on research on eating disorders, body image, mindfulness, behaviors, self-esteem, literally anything I could get my hands on that was relative to the fitness & bodybuilding worlds

This ALL inspired the launch of my post-show personal development program, my food relationship healing & discovery 1:1 program, & my on-demand mindset coaching platform

Who knew I’d even end up in a Master’s program for Clinical Mental Health Counseling!?

With all of this being said...believe in your journey, know there’s a reason for this, shining light on your darkness always pays off, & trust me when I say you can make peace with food & your body WHILE accomplishing your goals

You’re a whole person, an athlete, a go-getter; & deserve to be treated as such!

You don’t have to give up everything you love & have worked hard for to make peace, but you‘ll need to challenge your perspective, beliefs, & behaviors
