I met up with mom, who had recorded the whole thing. And immediately a smile came across my face. I was really pleased with my improvements from my last competition where I won the Overall Figure Title at Orlando Metropolitan 3 months prior. I had gained mass, and came in with a lower body weight. Came in leaner to the show. Then i remembered, I never started this for a title, I began competing to be better than I was before. And I was! I was impressed with my shape, my improvements in muscularity, and making gains while dieting for this competition.
As I pride myself in being a lifetime natural athlete, it feels good to compete in non-tested shows, because I feel as though I am competitive enough to compete. Maybe in the future, I'll do natural shows, but for now, I have a plan for the NPC. My final placing was 8th at a National Qualifier show. I will keep working hard to do this for me! I was so pleased with my physique and muscularity and will continue to improve it. I will come in tighter next year. I will go where the Lord leads me. I will move when He says to move. He has a plan, and I'm excited for the doors He is planning to open!!! Let's hope I'm ready for them!
Keep working hard ya'll. Please don't let other discourage you from what your blood, sweat, and tears reveal to you! You have a passion, LIVE IT UP! And if you're like me, I have several passions…and this site will show them all!!! More Pics are available on my Facebook page!
Goodnight! Stay Encouraged!
