#tbt to @themusclequest Rocky National Championships to my first figure competition where I got 3 🥇& battled in the Overall with @__allie12__ & @kaylabrowning27 & the other lady (don’t know her username). Each day goes by and I’m itching to get back on stage. This time around it will be a much fuller, bigger more defined look. I haven’t decided which show I’ll do next & it’s definitely not anytime soon but what I do know is that I’m working really hard to make my weaknesses my strengths. -
I was watching @mrolympiallc finals & they’ve really helped me reignite that competitive 🔥. -
At this show, Sandy Williamson, the head judge, stopped me back stage and told me to take my off season seriously because she couldn’t wait to judge me again on a higher level stages- that I have what it takes. I still repeat our conversation in my mind like it was yesterday. Next time I step on stage I promised her I wouldn’t let her down. I have about 18 more months of offseason before I make my comeback under the guidance of @dustiesamson. I truly can’t wait till that day.

The feeling was unlike any other... for those of you who have followed my journey I’m sure you know what this really means to me. I was the girl who hid in the gym after a breakup that essentially destroyed her self confidence. I was guilted for what I ate, how much I ate, I didn’t get dolled up enough, wear enough make up, the right clothes, do enough, clean enough, pay enough, you think of it .. It was picked apart as I’ve talked about in my lives before. The commentator of the show came up to me afterwards and said they thought I was by far the most gorgeous girl on stage.. now I know it was just a big fluff compliment because all the girls were stunning that competed.. but the exact moment that he said that I thought of everything that my ex had ever said that I hadn’t been able to shake for so long. I felt this mans words.. It wasn’t the makeup or the hair or the bathing suit or the body that made me feel beautiful. It was the hours and hours of sweat and tears and the pain and dedication that it took to get to this place. I felt his words because I had worked so hard for this, to pick myself up from a low and dark place, to build my confidence back up. I’m so happy I didn’t quit, I’m so grateful to you all who have messaged me kind words of encouragement, who have liked my posts and followed me as I grew. I got up there with zero expectations, except to maybe trip and fall😂, and left as a nationally qualified competitor!.... I’m still overwhelmed with emotions, a happiness I’ve never felt before. I set forth a goal and I not only accomplished but exceeded it! I can’t wait to see what comes next!! I can’t wait to continue the grind I have become so passionate about. With much love and gratitude to everyone out there, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and the good lord for this unbelievable blessing ❤️🙏🏽🥇🤗 .

It was an absolutely wonderful weekend! Nat Quals were pretty fun, Mitch advanced to Semi-Finals, as a team we got 11th, of 27 with only four teammates, which I'd say was pretty great.
Personally, except for my first inform round, my 8 other rounds were my best performances of the season. I am ready for subsections in two weeks! Next stop, NYC! In about 6 hours...
