14 Weeks Progress
One of the coolest things about my job is getting to see one of my clients reach a long-term goal and seeing how much it means to her to accomplish it.
Paula had dreamed of competing for years but wasn’t sure where to start. This year she finally told herself she would get up on stage before the end of the year, and as the months went by she realized it was time to make this dream a reality.
When Paula and I first spoke she told me how hard she was willing to work, and mentioned that when she eats well and works out consistently her body adapts quickly.
I have to say I was blown away with HOW quickly. Within a few weeks Paula had visible progress in her photos. Within two months I knew she would be ready for the stage before the end of the year.
Paula did not question anything I told her, she simply dedicated herself to following the plan. She cut the “junk” from her diet and resisted plenty of tempting treats at work. She hit the gym for every training session, even when it meant late nights after work.
By the way, Paula is a mom to two adorable little girls. She managed to balance taking care of them, working and running a business while getting her meals in, prepping food, training hard and drinking every ounce of water I insisted she choke down . 😉
It is because of this dedication Paula was ready to strut on stage this past weekend. Not only did she finally realize her goal of competing she placed an impressive fourth in a tough class and impressed the judges with her stage presence and posing.
Her individual walk was a huge crowd favorite – this girl is stunning and beautiful to watch. I could not have been more proud as her coach to see her stand up confidently on stage knowing she looked as good as any other competitor and how hard she worked to get there.
Paula isn’t done, either. She wants to keep training and keep working and keep competing.
After seeing what she was able to do with just fourteen weeks, I can just begin to imagine what she will be bringing back to the stage next Spring.
Working with women like Paula who love to challenge themselves and are willing to sacrifice to reach a goal is why I love what I do! Work it girl – you earned it!!
