Well here I am, living life after my competition. It's been 4 days since the competition and I've been home all day... right where I want to be. My little girl is sick, so I have good reason to be home, but to be perfectly honest, I really don't want to be at work or at the gym which is the same place! I'm so tired of working out. I pushed soooooo hard, that I just want a little BREAK! I slept most of the morning and it felt amazing and I'm a true homebody, so I love being home and having time to think, write, research, and just be alone. But I know I need to get back to my life ASAP.

Well, I am officially one week out from my second NPC Competition. I'm eager and ready to get through this week. This is where I am going to give my all and every bit of energy and strength that I have left!
I have been worried out of my mind this past week and it has affected me and my workouts greatly. I had not idea how I was going to pay for this competition. I truly love my job as a personal trainer and fitness instructor because I feel like it was what I was meant to do, but between the excessive cancellations and lack of clientele during this time of year, it has been rough. Still, I can't bring myself to change careers. I would rather receive a smaller income to help people than work behind a desk and not be able to reach anyone. It would absolutely break my heart! With that said, I have had to resort to a GoFundMe campaign. I did not want to bring myself to do it, but it was a last resort and I really have worked so hard these past 6 months to not be able to compete.
