I Did It!

Guess what, y'all? I signed up for a powerlifting meet!

I just had to do it, otherwise I knew I would keep making excuses and putting it off. It's in December, so that gives me a good 3 months to train. I'll be starting with a trainer in early September. I always keep my reps pretty low on my main lifts, so I don't think I'll have to completely change up my routine or anything. But it will be fun to do something different!

Here are the reasons I decided to do a powerlifting meet:

*To get stronger(duh!)
*To have a goal to work towards
*To find and work on my weaknesses
*To get out of my comfort zone and do something I've never done
*T put my focus solely on performance and not looks
*To help me with eating to fuel my lifts, not for abs(yes, I still struggle with this!)

I'm scared and nervous...but I'm also excited! I'm excited to have a goal to work towards and also just to have a program to stick to and someone to coach me on my lifts, which I've never had. I've never wanted to spend the money, but I know that  it will be worth it and that I will definitely benefit from it. It'll be fun sharing this experience with you guys, and maybe it will inspire one of you to do your first competition, too! 

I'm not doing this to beat anyone else, but I hope I don't make a complete fool of myself! My only hope is that I at least hit my goals at the meet, maybe set a PR. But it's really just about the experience and to be able to say that I did it. Not going to let my fears and insecurities hold me back from doing something I've always wanted to do!
