It's been one week since the WBFF Australia Pro/Am.
Today I'm reflecting back on how far I have come this year, what I have achieved and where I want to go moving forward. I believe so strongly in goals and visualisation. We are only human and there will always be days when motivation is low, when it seems impossible to stay on track or when we just want to give up. It's on those days that we need to have a why. We need to know why we fight every single day to make our dreams a reality. We need to know why our goals are important to us and why we want to achieve them. We need to visualise what success will look like and keep that image clear in our minds day in and day out.
Post-comp is often when the real challenge begins. The prospect of winning, the sparkle and glamour of the stage is done, the next show is months, even years away... It's so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life. Our goals and what is important to us can be forgotten. After every show, you want to have a structured reverse diet, clear training plan and new goals set in place to keep you progressing, growing and learning.
For me, this year was about making my dreams a reality. I managed to earn my Pro card and compete on stage with the best of the best. Now, it's time to kick things up a notch. If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough. And I'm dreaming big! I've worked to my absolute limit to earn my sash. In this off season - progress season - I'll be working even harder to get my crown 😉
I'm so proud of the physique I brought to all three shows this year and always aim to compete better and more refined. I came in at my leanest, and tiniest, for my Pro debut. It took a lot of hard work, discipline and it was not easy. For my next show, I'm planning something very different. Time to build some curves and put on a whole lot of muscle. I want to create a new shape and get strong! I've spent so long competing over the past few years that I haven't actually given myself the proper time I need to grow. Patience is key for change, so I'll be grinding for the next several months... Maybe a year to bring my best physique yet ❤️💎
