Guys, I couldn’t be more proud to tell you that I won at the weekend and now can say that I am the National Champion!
Thank you to so many of you for your lovely well wishes, it really meant a lot to me to hear from so many of you! I won with a unanimous decision, and have been riding high ever since!
A long road…
I did want to share with you that despite the proud moment, it’s not been easy. It’s been three years in the making and I took on many losses and disappointments in that time. I lost to the same girl twice. I lost in the national finals last year. I got sick so many times. I had a kidney infection one month out from a bout. I had injuries that had me out for weeks and weeks at a time, forcing me to start again at square one.
I got bashed up at training, and I cried A LOT! I stormed out of the gym and called my Mum a million times! I doubted my ability, but never my work ethic. I struggled with my weight, I struggled with my health, I averaged 5 hours of sleep for a while and thought I was loosing my mind!
After each loss, each disappointment, each bout of tears, each illness, each injury, I walked back into the gym and did the work.
I documented some of the hard work from the last three years and put it into a video.
