Stronger Than You Think

Congratulations…You just did your 1st fitness/figure/bikini/physique competition…Now what? Pt 1

You just stepped off stage of your 1st competition.  You dieted, trained, posed and walked for the last 16 weeks (or more).  You scarf down your 1st hamburger, milk shake or whatever you have been coveting the last few months. Now you realize that you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn on Monday morning to hit your cardio or weights.  Thank God!  What a relief!  Or is it? Over the years, as a competitor and coach for several competitors, the following is what I have experienced and found helpful to return to a less hectic schedule.  Over the next several posts, I will be sharing steps to:
  1. Adjust back to a less hectic workout schedule
  2. Return to regular eating habits
  3. Avoid body dysmorphia and depression
  4. Rekindle relationships
 
After 22 years of dieting and training for competitions, I experienced many episodes of up and down moments of self doubt, depression and body image issues.   After putting everything into perspective, I have come to realize that I am okay!  With the information that I will share, I want to help you avoid the pitfalls that I have experienced.
