I’m a little fit girl, short and strong
I’m a little fit girl,
Short and strong,
I’m trying to build muscle,
But it’s taking so long
I drink my shakes and eat my bars,
I take my supplements,
I go to the gym and lift my weights,
And I’m starting to get compliments!
I am NOT a super fit girl. I am a 5’3” one hundred ten pound “puny vegan”. Well, that’s what my students told me once. My cosmetology school students told me this when I admitted to them for the first time that my dream was to compete in a figure competition. Since then, I have kept mum on the subject of lifting weights and dieting except in the comfort of close friends. I am, however, working my butt off harder than ever to accomplish something that no one that I could do!
A little background on me:
My athletic history consists of one season of soccer…in sixth grade
I had been a vegan for 7 years. Until this week.
I tried running for a few months until I fractured my foot last year
I still cannot wear heels…or run… (sesamoiditis)
I am a hair stylist- NOT a fitness expert
This is my personal journey towards something that has inspired, awed, amazed me, and made me question my own physical and emotion limits. I am training to compete in my first bikini competition.
