A year ago I was getting ready for my second show ever. I dieted down, but ended up peaking too soon. I got way to lean to early and unfortunately, I got really sick. I had to pull out of the show and started having serious digestion issues. Every time I ate my stomach would blow up with air, it would be hard as a rock and I would be in pain. The only thing that helped was not eating and of course, show time all comes down to what you eat. The way you look all comes down to what you eat and I could barley touch anything. I went about 4 months eating something small as soon as I woke up like eggs and then a meal right before bed and lost about 25 lbs, everything I worked for pretty much went right down the drain. I went to the doctors and regardless of all the test I had done, endoscopy, colonoscopy, Xrays, sonograms, blood work, it didn’t matter, no body could figure out what was wrong other than “my kidney enzymes are a bit too high.” Before I knew it, 8 months went by and I was a mess. The one thing I loved the most was taken away from me and no body could help me. My boyfriend stepped in. “You have to go to the gym” he pushed me every day. He made me fresh juice drinks for me every morning. He made the one meal I could eat at night to enjoy. My family being all the way in Massachusetts. I was alone here in Florida and the only support was from my boyfriend and a few close friends.

One day it all clicked! He convinced me to try for a show again. That’s when I talked to my coach Nick from AnyTimeFitness with Imperial Physiques. I saw how much of a team everyone there was. People supporting each other when competing together. Going through the hard work to make it to the top and I wanted to be apart of that so I tried. I had 3 months to build, then another 3 to cut down for the C.J. Classic in west palm 2016. I had absolutely no idea if I was going to be able to walk across that stage, finally being diagnosed with IBS and not knowing if carb loading or water manipulation or even just the diet in general would keep me from being able to step on that stage. All the money, all the time I put into this show came down to the last hour.

I did it! I made it! I took first Overall making me nationally qualified. I potentially could have never been able to compete again, literally took a leap of faith and I just ended up landing on both feet. Without the push, with out the support, the love from everyone and the amount of people that cheered for me along the way; this proves that if you just simply try, you can do it. I get to keep my passion and it will never be just a faded memory.
