Nabba/WFF 2012 - The journey on my way to my first Competition.

Wow what a crazy few months.. This blog has taken me a while to even start, I have been saying ill post one soon, but i have been so busy with life and training.

A few months ago i completed my Certificates III & IV in Fitness at Human Performance Centre here on the Gold Coast, what an amazing and life changing experience. Learning all the new knowledge just sparked the fire in my stomach to get fit, train others and change lives.

All of you know i have been in this modeling world for some time now, coming and going, but i decided to take a new direction and train my bum off and compete on stage at the Nabba/WFF Southern Hemisphere Competition on the weekend. 12 weeks of prepping, dieting, breaking rules, losing my mind, growing muscle, losing body fat and generally stripping everything back to a bare canvas to grow a new "Allira"

I spent many hours on my bike at home on my balcony at 530am in the cold doing my daily cardio, taking myself into the gym and pushing weights so heavy, I thought my little arms and legs were going to snap, but it was all worth it in the end.

I used to look at bodybuilders or any fitness competitor and think, ah yeah piece of cake, anyone can go into a gym, smash some weights, eat chicken and look like that.. well how wrong i was.

I absolutely take my hat off to ANYONE that decide's to compete, from Sportmodel all the way to Figure, the dedication, time, blood sweat & tears that go into making these people look the way they do, is just insane. The hours not only spent in the gym, but prepping your food, weighing your meats, figuring out what fats to eat and what not to eat,the whole process is endless so i have a new profound respect for all these men and women who do this sport.

I didnt end up placing in my first competition. I went in with an open mind, semi already knowing i wasn't going to place, but from the time i started to now, I am the best version of Allira i have ever been, so to me as clichè as it sounds, i already won. I intend on competing all this year, pushing myself to new levels and seeing where i end up.

Thanks to everyone who supported me, coached me, guided me and just gave me support whilst doing this new adventure..xx
