I am ready.
Last week, I wasn’t. I was kind of a mess, actually. Stressed, nervous, comparing myself to everyone on Instagram. Worried my abs wouldn’t show up and that I’d be the “fat girl” on stage.
And I might be. But I can’t control that.
What I can control is me. And what I know is, I have put in the work. 365 days of work.
I was told by 3 different doctors that I would “never be thin” but I am now.
Over the years, I have had dozens of people say to me in surprise, “oh, you’re an athlete?”. Well now I look it – I don’t have to say it.
I didn’t miss a single workout during prep. Not one.
I stuck to my diet. In spite of birthdays and office parties and holidays and hormones (yes, I’m over sharing – some weeks are a LOT harder than others to say “no” to chocolate).
I have built a willpower stronger than anything I’ve thought was ever possible.
Do I want to win? Hell ya, I’m competitive AF. And maybe I’ll deserve it, maybe I won’t. There will be a lot of girls on Saturday who busted their asses, just like me.
But either way, I’m not going to stress this week. Because I’ve put in the work. I’ve done everything in my control to be the best I can be. To be as prepared as I can be. And I am ready.
I even created a run of show. Because that’s how I roll.
Nerd at heart…but nerds. get. shit. done.
