I am very disciplined at keeping to my schedule and this doesn't include making sure I have eaten my prep food at the designated times throughout my day. But, I enjoy the process and therefore, that is why I compete!
One of the many positives I have enjoyed since the beginning of the competition season is the outpouring of interest and support for our new division by those who tell me at the gym or via social media. I am surprised and humbled to hear or get messages from people saying "they love my look" or that they have become "fans" of mine. To have that type of "extended" family support is literally what drives me during my workouts and helps me envision what type of routine I will perform.
