I have always hit the gym 5-10 times a week and I have always had a semi-clean diet, but I always persisted that I would never do a competition because I wouldn't be able to achieve the level of dedication required. Part way through my 12 month working holiday in Australia in 2016, I moved to Darwin and started working for a company on a 3 month contract. One of the women in the office was competing in a competition the week I arrived, and we discussed it at length. She mentioned that there was a competition in Darwin in 13 weeks time. It dawned on me that this was the perfect time for me and that if she could do it, so could I. Typical comp prep is 12 weeks; I was living in a tropical climate where it's much easier to get out of bed and do cardio at 6am and the warm weather encourages you to eat lighter and healthier foods. I knew if didn't do it now, I never would. From the second I decided to enter, my whole mindset changed. Before, if I was cutting and I was offered some bad food, I had no real reason to say no. Now, every time I considered eating or drinking something that wasn't in my plan, I knew it could be the difference between first and second place when I stepped on stage. When I struggled for motivation, I would appeal to my competitive nature by reminding myself that somewhere in the same town there were another 5 guys all working harder than me to try and beat me. With these psychological drivers, I rarely found comp prep to be a struggle.
