Motivational Monday: Courtney’s Competing Journey

Courtney haas

Awesome job, Courtney! Fitness America, here she comes!


“I decided to take this journey to challenge myself, not only physically but also mentally. When I was in high school food was a big part of my life, and it controlled my life. I always wanted to have that “toned” and “fit” looking body and back then I took the complete wrong way to achieve it. I always thought about competing but I was too scared and didn’t think I could do it.  I would go all day without eating, having my first meal of the day at 3 o’clock and not eating any time after that, and if I did I would make myself sick. I was anorexic and bulimic. I struggled with this through high school and even after until about 2 years ago. I finally told myself I couldn’t live like this and started eating breakfast and trying to eat throughout the day and I felt like a new person. Then I met my boyfriend, Scott, and he completely helped me change my look on how to eat right and actually workout correctly. After his competition and seeing how hard he worked and how great he looked not only on the outside, but also on the inside I decided to jump on board to this amazing, tough, long, amazing journey and I couldn’t be any happier. I’ve realized the mental part of this journey is the hardest, and it’s the part I wanna beat.” -Courtney
