Why, you ask? I’ll Tell You.

Hi everyone,  I’m not ashamed to admit it but I have tried to start a blog on two separate occasions. . .both times failing.  This past year has been very emotional and eye-opening for me.  I quit my job in the spring and spent the rest of the year working on a film project as co-writer, director, producer and shooter.  The film project is ongoing but like any other major event in your life, once you get heavily involved with it, what used to be a priority gets pushed to the backseat.   This, unfortunately, is what happened to most of the goals I had set for myself for the year.    How do I know?  Because I make a list at the end of every year and I recently found the one I wrote December 23rd, 2009.

The list was broken up into immediate goals and long-term goals, making a total of 39 goals.  Sadly, only 7 goals were crossed out.  Most people would be disappointed at seeing this, but I was not.  As a matter of fact, the list inspired and excited me.  I have so many things to look forward to, two of them being getting back into shape so that I can return to the stage as a Figure Competitor.

This is where I believe the blog can be a helpful tool.  There’s a lot that goes into being a Figure competitor.  Dedication and consistency is vital.  Documenting my journey daily is a great way to keep me focussed and remind me of what it is I’m trying to achieve . . . . compete.  I’m also hoping that my blog sheds a positive light on a female population that is often misrepresented and misunderstood, Figure Athletes.  That’s it for now everyone.

In Fitness & In Health,

Icela
