This has been a journey of a lifetime, and IF I don’t make it to the finals…. I’m still a WINNER! Since starting the competition for the Ms Health and Fitness, I was no where the person I am today. Starting the last week in April, to the first day of June, I have seen my full potential as an athlete.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
I began the day walking two miles, with bleachers. I also started fasting, only allowing myself to eat between 4pm to 8pm. My diet only consist of chicken, eggs, jasmine rice. In the beginning, fasting was awful because I was hungry all the time. Learning that my problem was eating without a schedule. Once I got my body adjusted to eating from 4 to 8, I noticed within the first couple of weeks I was losing inches.
After the first month, I lost 11 pounds. However, I was consistent and discipline with the process. I wake up, started my 2 miles (added jogging into the mix), go to the gym, and then ended up at the track doing another 2 miles. I was done with all my training by lunchtime, if I started my day at 9am. Towards the end of this competition, I have more energy to do things. I have learned to fast for a full 24 hours without any pain. No inflammation from fibromyalgia, and no headaches while going on 24 hrs of not eating. A month ago, I would have said, I can’t do that… my body won’t allow me without being inflamed.
I did it! Im doing it, and I feel amazing as I enter 43 years of age on Saturday! I’m in the best shape of my life, and I have proved to myself that living with a chronic illness, and autoimmune diseases can be manageable. You can live a healthy life, with more pain free days.
I have 1 day left to make it to #1, for the Ms. Health & Fitness 2022. Please go vote to help me reach a goal, that I honestly thought wasn’t possible a year ago. I’m beating the odds with my health! I’m striving for a goal that my doctors said, might not be possible. My faith is in abundance, & my God is my ultimate healer to whom I will trust. Nothing is impossible, when you have the faith that could mountains.
