So excited that I was able to attend the 2018 Mr Olympia in Las Vegas! I had such an awesome time traveling out to Vegas and bonding with my Bikini Prep teammates. Seeing all the competitors and exhibitors made me even more excited to be on my own prep! What an experience seeing and meeting so many amazing people who share the same passion for health and fitness!
I am excited to announce that I have joined the NPC BIKINI PREP ON TEAM Tailored Physiques. I NEVER thought that I would be saying in my life that I was prepping for a bikini competition but here I am. Looking back in 2013, my story almost ended when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and since then my life has never been the same. I have taken my second chance and not only became a survivor but a life thriver by taking control of my health.
It has been less than a week since I officially started and I already knew this was going to be one of the most challenging things I have done. I was very hesitant before I begun on how much I was going to be sharing of this part of my life online due to my own personal protection because of all the criticism and judgment. But I am happy to say that I have had nothing but genuine support and love online and in person. I know it’s not always going to be like this but I am going to keep omg sinking whether you are a hater or supporting watching my journey. I am doing this for ME. I also am doing this in hopes of inspiring others as a cancer survivor I can not only “survive” but actually thrive in their own lives.
I have been vloging my journey on my YouTube channel as much as I can, thank you for your patience as I get my videos posted and again THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT .
From leftovers to now calling it “meal prep” there has been a dramatic shift in the attitude towards eating out of tupperware and how it is viewed from society, but in a positive way. I remember the first time I ordered meal prep back in 2015 when I was staying with one of my coworkers at the time waiting for my apartment to be ready and I did not want to burden her with cooking in her kitchen since I was a guest. Cue On Season Meals, who had just recently opened their doors and was conveniently located on my commute to work
After a few weeks of ordering I had felt so spoiled that I didn’t have to lift a finger to prep anymore and around that time was when I started getting into health and fitness so I continued to order my meal prep. I honestly could not cook my food every single time I ate and just thinking about the amount of cleanup and dishes already makes me tired and stressed!
