Although I’ve always been an active individual, a few years ago I was sidelined and unable to move my body due to a pretty serious back injury from a car wreck. Talk about a depressing time in my life. Also, a good time to self-loathe, feel sorry for myself, and get fat for the first time in my life. I lost all motivation and nearly felt like I had lost my identity.
Nearly a year later, I got the okay to get back into it and it’s been a slow process gaining strength without risking further injury, but I’ve been consistent and have been able to increase my deadlift to #245 now. I never thought I’d be able to achieve that kind of weight again with my back screwed, but it’s a testament to what a hard work, patience, and determination can do. The girl in the right photo is who I really am on the inside; the broad in left is someone I will never see again. I murdered her and her piss poor attitude two years ago when I committed myself to changing my mindset and put in the work to make it happen.
Excited to see what my body is capable of achieving in the next two years. Bring on the gainz.
