30 Days Out

It’s difficult for someone who has never gone through a contest prep to fully understand the physical and mental challenges that physique athletes in a contest prep face. At this point, on less than 1,600 calories a day, doing daily cardio and intense weight training as well as working a full time job, life can suck! It’s getting harder to focus, harder to hold conversations and even hard to play Words with Friends, lol. When your fat intake is around 30 grams a day, you’re subject to strange aches in your wrists, elbows, knees and ankles because you’ve lost fat cushioning. As this three year journey comes to an end, regardless of whether I place or not, I’ve gained the body and fitness level that I need for Life Part II. I’ve gained evidence based knowledge on nutrition and fitness and I’ve gained confidence in what I am capable of!
