The Real Real

LOVE listening to the Bikini Diaries Podcast during cardio, while doing my makeup and just wherever I can!! This podcast keeps me focused and honest with myself. I am new to this sport so I am soaking up every ounce of information I can!! I first chose this sport to show myself that I can control my eating disorder but now I see how it’s a lifestyle. Hearing the struggles of prep of successful bikini pros and amateurs makes me feel human and has guided me during this season of prep. Keep the good podcasts coming! 💖

Amy Blevins💕 ,
