Q&A with Lara
1. What goals do you have for 2018?
My fitness goals for 2018 are to compete in Season B 2018 - I am aiming for IFBB in October 2018 and also the ICN shows in September and October. I want to bring a bigger and better package to the stage than I did in 2017.
I aim to continue my training throughout the year to ensure my competition prep is as smooth as possible. I am constantly pushing myself to improve.
I will continue my studies during this period along with working part time as I love to keep busy! But before I have to knuckle down for comp prep, there will be a few trips to Bali in the coming months so I am well rested for a huge year ahead!
2. What advice would you give to other women out there wanting to change their lifestyle like you did?
The best advice I have ever been given is “believe in yourself, because anything in possible”. I used to be so ashamed of my body, and knew that I needed to change. I needed to be happy, and to find myself. I found confidence I never knew I had, and pushed myself harder than I could’ve ever imagined, and today I am proud of the girl I am. I have never been happier or more confident in myself.
For those who struggle with body image, my advice would be that if you aren’t happy then do everything in your power to change it. There is no use complaining or feeling bad about yourself. Strive for change and believe that you can change.
3. What is your ultimate cheat meal?
If you know me, you know that my ultimate cheat meal is a BIG pizza. You will often find me spending my Friday nights trying out new pizza restaurants. My favourite is a BBQ chicken pizza with pineapple. I also have a slight obsession with fish tacos
4. Why do you enjoy being a Bulk Nutrients Ambassador?
I have used Bulk Nutrients supplements ever since I first started training, so to now be an ambassador for the brand is a dream come true. I’m so proud to endorse supplements I truly believe in!
The fact that I’ve been using Bulk Nutrients from the beginning of my weight loss journey goes to show just how much Bulk products have helped me every step of the way.
Bulk Nutrients delivers products that I truly believe in, absolutely love and would recommend to anyone – plus being a part of the Bulk team is loads of fun & helps keep me motivated!
