I started working out when the pandemic began. I was over weight and unhappy. Being only 4’ 11’’, every extra pound on my body felt like 50 extra. I needed to change. I work from home full time and took advantage of being able to work out on my lunch breaks.
I stayed consistent and fell in love with lifting and seeing my hard work pay off. Once the gyms reopened I got a trainer and learned my way around the gym. Got over my fear of the squat rack and started to amaze myself at what I could do.
My interest was peaked to body build when I started to look for another goal to work towards. I started body building in Feb 2022 and I will never look back! My first show is October 1st and I can not wait. I will be competing in 2 divisions, Bikini and Wellness. Sometimes we lose ourselves in our everyday lives. I am married, own a home, I have 3 kids and 3 dogs. Body building is something I do for me that keeps me happy and healthy.
I love the way my body has transformed and I continue to amaze myself everyday with how hard I work no matter how tired I am. Once this show is over, I plan on competing again in April of 2024 bigger and better. It would be awesome to become IFBB pro and have something to show for how hard I’ve worked.
