Jan’17 > Dec’17
January was a crashing point for me, mentally and physically. Physically, I gained a decent amount of body fat which really triggered my body dysmorphia. I was extremely uncomfortable and ended up backing out of my powerlifting competition because I couldn't drop the weight to be in my class. Mentally, I was trying to grow my business and ended up burning out big time. As I was recovering from the burnout, I crashed again... It was rough to say the least. Anxiety and depression were in full effect at this point too.
After a big calorie cut, a huge setback and change in training, a vacation and a hell of a lot of recovery, repair and growth, I'm stronger than ever now—both mentally and physically.

It's not about what photos look better, how much I weigh, or how many calories I'm eating. It's about personal growth and development. This is my growth over this past year and I am damn proud of how much I have persevered when shit went south. Mentally I'm in such a solid place and I can truly help those around me because my energy cup is full. I know when I need to put the brakes on, and I know when I need to grind. There's a balance and that looks different for everyone's lives. This is my balance, my growth, my success. ✌🏼
