When I started this journey in July 2016, it started as a journey solely to get abs.
Since I was 12 and saw Britney Spears do “I’m a slave for you” on MTV movie awards, I wanted her abs. I thought she had the best abs I had ever seen. It had been a life long dream to achieve this:
Surprisingly, within a few months, not only was I able to achieve these abs, I started to look even leaner than Britney. Not just her abs, but a leaner, more muscular body than what I thought, at the time, was the best body/abs I had ever seen.
So my goals evolved. It became less about looks but more about being fit. Being strong. Being powerful. Being an athlete!
Don’t get me wrong, a ripped 6 pack is still what I want but it was less about how I looked and more about how strong I could be and the proper nutrition that would help it along.
I use to eat so much sugar a day; I know it was an addiction. Junk foods was the name of the game for me. I hated that everyone who knew me said, “Wow, you must be so healthy because you swam 3 hours a day,” but I knew I wasn’t because of the foods I ate. I got away with not being fat since I worked out so much, but I still knew I wasn’t giving my body the proper nutrition it should be for an athlete.
Because I had such great success, I wanted to let others know how awesome this has been and inspire others to achieve their fitness goals. It’s been a great journey but totally been worth it!
