A BODYBUILDER'S DIARY: 5 WEEKS OUT

A BODYBUILDER'S DIARY: 5 WEEKS OUT

by Kristin Lia

It's begun, the fatigue, the brain fog.

I feel hungry all the time. I think of it as the pain of success. This mindset makes it almost enjoyable in some bizarre way. I am forgetting many things. I do not have the capacity to socialise much and be ‘active’ on social media. I post, I log off.

The notifications are switched off my phone, I do not have the capacity for any distractions. Any spare time I do have, I am posing, or planning. There is a lot to organise for the events, and I want them to be perfect. The next 5 weeks are mine, mine to be selfish and switch off from the world.

My body is ready, but I know I can do more. The more fatigued and leaner I get the more I give. I find it highly motivating. Because I know that feeling means that I am looking good, and it makes me hungrier for more.

I usually get stressed in prep. I am not this time. Somewhere along the line I have found it easy to just ‘let go of things’. Previously I struggled to sleep in prep, now as soon as I eat my dinner I pass out on the couch. It's so amazing!  I have worked too hard to let my cortisol levels and mindset be ruined by my emotions.

I have competed before, many times, and I know that at the end of the day everything will be alright and the things that actually matter in my world will.

I love how I am evolving as an athlete, as a person.
