It's crazy to think how little I used to eat. And then I'd wonder why I struggled so much with cravings and binges. I thought for sure something was wrong with me!
Now that I'm finally learning how to nourish my body, my mind is healing too. It's really such an amazing process ✌️🦄
I make mistakes, and I will for the rest of my life.
But that is okay! It's a crucial part of life.
But through these mistakes, I've learned to do myself, and everyone else, a favor by figuring out exactly what I want from life. I do this because I no longer want to waste my own time, nor anyone else's.
If I don't set my own agenda, I'm bound to be living for someone else's.
We tend to get caught up in comparing ourselves to others - let that shit go! You are you and they are themselves - realize your power in your individuality, your weirdness and your beauty.! Stand in your power and be beautiful - the way you were meant to be!!!!
The Balance between lifestyle and body composition.
These are pictures taken 1 day after I returned from a 10 day vacation and almost 5 months post competition. I'm sitting at about 10 pounds off stage weight at 152.8.
In an effort to keep things real I share my images and thoughts behind the reasonable expectations of my body balanced with the lifestyle I choose to lead.
I have always found it to be paramount for people to have very realistic expectations of their body composition based on their lifestyle and health. I often find people having such unrealistic expectations they often stay miserable and obsessive in this aspect.
For me my happiness, optimal health markers and stress levels are of upmost importance when I decide what is the best place for my body composition to be in. Now of course I'm not talking about excessive fat and irresponsible eating.
Personally I am not upset that I am not ripped nor have a leaner physique others are more capable of having. I accept my body as is when its in its happiest state. I prefer a rounder fuller healthier look. While I am a competitor and love the journey to the stage mentally one of the harder places for me is the leanness I get in my face- I can barely stand to look at myself like I have some fatal disease. 😜 More importantly I'm Not really happy nor find myself having a daily sense of calm when my body fat level is too low. While I look insane I often feel terrible.
In addition to theses feelings I also have a particular lifestyle I desire. I love to eat healthy but I do not want the stress of measuring and nit picking everything all year around constantly watching every portion. I want to enjoy cooking healthy, having a couple of free meals a week with family and not doing cardio but lifting and training intensely. I also want to continue to build muscle so I understand I have to eat in a manner that provides additional calories for that goal. So like with everything there's a compromise. To have to the lifestyle I want I must balance that with reasonable expectations of my body composition.
