My fitness journey
THURSDAY, 30 JUNE 2011
16 weeks out
My training and diet have progressively gotten more intense. I cannot I say that I fully understood the hard work and dedication that these figure athletes put in day in and day out. I would be lying if I said this was easy because it affects everything around me; relationships, work, family and mostly me, the competitor.
There are many instances where I want to give up, directly in the middle of a set. Just drop the weight and walk away because that IS what’s easier. But I am not a quitter and failure is not an option for me. I remind myself why I committed to competing and that allows me to stay focused. I love the feeling of accomplishment I get when I start to see my body transform. I love the sense of pride I get upon completing a two hour leg day; utter satisfaction.
I am going to push through every burn, every cramp, and embrace all challenges.
There are certain individuals who secretly hope I fail because I am doing what they cannot do themselves. This is all the more reason for me to prevail. For anyone who has ever said, “she can’t do it, she’s not strong enough,” I embrace that challenge and welcome any other criticism that comes my way. I will not accept defeat until I know deep down that I have trained my absolute hardest and to my maximum potential.
So I prepare for yet another day of training.
