Megan Gillespie Says ~
“The training for my upcoming competition has been an incredible journey the last 14 weeks. It has been the most difficult obstacle to overcome; both mentally and physically. I have had to learn how to change my lifestyle and begin making my new lifestyle a habit. Not only has my body transformed, but so has my mind. I have taught myself discipline, self-control, and persistence at a whole new level. Training has required constant dedication and perseverance through all the highs and lows of life. There have been days where I feel like giving up, and where all the sacrifices I have to make for training just don’t feel like they’re worth it. On days you have no energy, swamped with a huge workload, stressed out over bills, or trying to maintain relationships, you still have to put in the work at the gym. Its days like these that really build character and that define who you are. Training for a competition isn’t for everyone; it is hard work! But you have to keep your priorities straight and create new goals for yourself to achieve. So far I have lost three pant sizes, fifteen pounds, and a negative self-image. I have gained confidence, the courage to pursue my dreams and exceed my own expectations, and have proven to myself that I have the ability to accomplish anything I set my mind to.”
And as always remember – Stay Motivated!
