Powerlifting Meet

My powerlifting meet that was July 31st, I landed a THIRD PLACE MEDAL!!

It felt so good to place, although definitely not my best numbers — I did PR in my squat. I haven’t yet looked at my total, it just makes me anxious but I plan on it at some point before the new year. Competition was tough this meet & I was cutting down weight in hopes I would be able to manage a record, but missed the weight by 2 lbs. I was still able to compete in my weight class (75kg/165lb) Raw.

This prep for the meet wasn’t as fatiguing on my body compared to my previous meet in April, which made me really happy but still felt really drained the week afterwards & while there a few more meets I could do before next year arrives, I decided two was good enough for me for 2021. I have a chance to go to Nationals, and compete but I am sitting this one out to train for next year instead and then go to Nationals — I would rather train and strengthen my weaknesses and work on my technique and focus on other goals so that when I do compete against other athletes in the world, I can have a better chance at winning or at least feeling good about my efforts. I always tell people they should go to as many meets as possible to get a chance to meet people, be around the atmosphere and get a good idea of the expectations from the judges, etc, BUT for me, I have been to enough meets where I feel comfortable now, so my meets will be focused on purpose and I won’t waste time peaking for something I don’t want to do, so this is another reason why I would rather wait till next year before competing again. I have a few meets in mind, and possibly might join another federation as well!

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
