My sister encouraged me to do this challenege. I didn’t go into it with the mentality of wanting to beat everyone else. My goal was to simply make some kind of transformation. Big or small, I saw this as an opportunity to push myself. Instead of focusing on the numbers, I hid the scale and decided to center my focus on eating healthy and putting in that work in the gym. I only weighed myself twice during this competition. The 1st and last day. Doing that allowed me the freedom to focus on my strength, technique and endurance. My motivation came from wanting to be stronger mentally and physically. I wanted to prove to myself that I could overcome that voice in the back of head telling me I wasn’t good enough or strong enough. I wanted to crush all those doubts and push myself to be better everyday and I let that drive me. I am happier and healthier than I’ve ever been and am very excited for my fitness journey going forward! I’m focused, I’m pumped and ready to put in that work. I’m incredibly thankful to TITLE Boxing Club San Diego North Park for providing me that opportunity and encouraging me every step of the way!
