This weekend at the Arnold Classic Expo was very humbling. Here are some of the big takeaways from the events:
I didn’t place at all at the Amateur show, and that was a total mind-fuck for a few days; I doubted myself, my effort, and my possibilities. 🤯 BUT, I also gained perspective about myself as a person and competitor, and also about this sport.
I met an array of intelligent, introspective, and dedicated amateur and pro bodybuilding athletes, coaches, and judges. 🏋🏻♂️
I met and hugged great and supportive people in my #fitfam - who motivate me daily to be my best. 🏼
I spent time with phenomenal athletes in Team Bodybuilding.com - mostly while eating. 🤣
Met with my fellow sponsored athlete sisters, Body Bling Babes!
Snagged a selfie with Eddie Hall! (I literally sprinted to run interference and he was so sweet to stop, instead of running me over! Haha) 🤳🏻
I partied! I love dancing and haven’t had my fix in a while. 🏻 Followed by a 2AM run to enjoy local donuts with a #fitfam friend who has always been sweet and supportive since I began my fitness transformation last year! 🥰
I got to see Arnold himself and hear him talk about the impact and history of bodybuilding in his time. 🏼
I - and my co-producer, Olga Wagner - gathered a great amount and great quality of footage for our documentary about women in bodybuilding. (<- Cat’s outta the bag! Stay tuned!!!) 🎞
All in all, the only thing that I would change about the weekend would be to have more time to do more of all of the things that I enjoyed! Next year, I will be back with a vengeance!!!
