I Need a Goal

Clearly I need a concrete, physical goal. I was supposed to reevaluate my macros on the 16th of October but I obviously couldn’t think of a good enough reason to stick with my macros on Saturdays and Sundays so nothing changed in that 28 days. I didn’t gain, but, I didn’t lose either. So I’m…

Show Day (Taking The Stage)

The meeting wasn’t very informative. It only lasted about 15 minutes. The main thing they talked about was their rules for bikini posing. When it ended I decided to go backstage and try to find a place where I could sit and put on my makeup. When I got backstage I noticed a couple of…

Show Day (Morning)

I woke up on show day, at 6:30 am to a hotel “phone ring” wake up call. I stayed there in bed for a couple of minutes trying to take in the moment and concentrate on how I was feeling. I always imagine having these grand feelings on “important” days but you still have to go through…

The Day Before Show Day

As of Saturday, May 13, I’m 3 weeks away from my peak week and 4 weeks away from competition day! I thought it might be fun do do one of these “What I Eat in a Day” posts at this point. Here’s what my macros are set at now (I probably won’t go any lower…
