This is the personal diary of Tiffany Miller. I’ve started this blog as a means to track my journey to my first Fitness Model Competition. Once a marathon runner, I became crippled by IT band syndrome. For years I spent thousands on physiotherapy trying to force my body to do something it wasn’t happy doing. Sadly I had injured myself to the point where the only thing I could do to recover was rest. After a year of resting I became skinny fat and depressed. Sick of myself, I finally got my ass to a gym and signed up for Highland Dancing Classes. If running wasn’t going to be my thing, I would find something my body could enjoy doing.
I immediately feel back in love with the gym. But instead of light weight training sessions followed by excessive amount of cardio, I decided to make my focus in the gym on weight training and light cardio. I loved it! I loved that it didn’t hurt (and by hurt I mean pain, not the good kind of muscle soreness) and I loved the feeling of my body getting stronger and my physique becoming more shapelier than it had ever been.
Being the type A personality that I am I needed another goal. I was back in shape and eating clean, but I wanted motivation to push myself to the next level (this is how I feel in love with marathoning) and so the idea of me entering a Fitness Model Contest one day was born.
So hear we are, a year after the idea of a competition first popped in my mind. I’ve got a trainer, a plan and a competition picked out and this blog will document my daily dieting, workouts and feelings along this path to the stage.
