It's a Journey

Almost 15 years ago, I lifted my first pair of dumbbells, and that was when my obsession began. All these years later, I am just now getting close to the way I have always wanted to look....I mean, it only took 15 years!

Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and see the muscle that I've built, and I'm just amazed at how far I've come. I'm so proud of the results I've gotten from all the hard work that I've put in over the years. It's such an awesome feeling to see the body that YOU'VE created through hard wark, discipline, and persistence.

If I had given up on my goal when I felt like I wasn't seeing improvements, or had given in to the negative thoughts in my head telling me that I would never get bigger, or if I had quit on the days when I just wasn't feeling it, then I wouldn't be where I am today.

You gotta keep pushing through the times when you feel like you're getting nowhere, keep pushing through the times when your motivation isn't at it's highest, and keep pushing through the negative thoughts and doubts that will fill your head at times. Keep in mind that it's a journey that you're on and that there is really no destination.

Never give up on getting the body of your dreams-it IS possible! It won't be easy, but if you commit to the process 100% no matter HOW long it takes, and you don't let anything stop you, you WILL get results. It may be a slow process, but the end results are SO worth it. There is not a better feeling than reaching your goals!!

Something to remind yourself of during the journey:
Don't be so upset about how far you still have to go; be excited about how far you've come! - Joyce Meyer

    15 years is a LOOONNNG time to stay focused, but YOU did, and wow, look what you have to show for it!! Congratulations on following through to see the results you've been working so hard for. What an inspiration!
    I can't help but laugh when I think about the women who are afraid they will "bulk up" from lifting weights...haha, like it will happen in 2 weeks! LOL!

      I still have a ways to go and definitely want more muscle, but I have to always remind myself of how far I've come!
      Yeah...I wish I could bulk up in 2 weeks! If ONLY it were that easy!!

  3. Thank you for pointing out how long you've been lifting for. Sometimes its easy to get discouraged with the lack of "quick" progress. You look amazing and congratulations on all of your hard work and dedication.

      I want people to realize that creating a lean and muscular physique is a very slow process. At least it was for me!
