    Usually at this time, I am just waiting for it to be over, now I want more time to try and get things perfect. I know, I would never compete if I waited for perfection.

    I was at the market in Mexicali today and the guy behind the meat counter asked where I was from. I told him NY. He then asked if I was Puerta Rican?
    WTF. I am a white American. Then I realized, my tan threw him off. LOL
    Obs keeps insisting that I am PR when I tan.

    All good things must come to an end. I have hit a brick wall. I donít want to eat and I ran out of energy this morning.
    Fasted cardio followed by my workout this morning was just too much. My weights that I am using are decreasing also.
    I lost another .8 lbs today.
    My life is so boring. Gym, work, gym, tan, work. Start all over again. It was good for awhile and I thought I could continue the pace.
    Ran out of frag. I know I have 2 bottles somewhere.
    Going to run out of clen today. I know I have some, I just canít find it.

    My honeymoon lasted way longer than I thought possible. The level of intensity was unparalleled but I just canít keep it up. Maybe these days off will help me renew.

    I looked at my abs yesterday and got totally depressed. I wanted to swallow some dynamite and just blow them up. I thought that I would be able to pose normal, but I am going to need to hide the loose skin. I do have 2 treatments of radio frequency which may help.

    It is getting old to rush around to get my cardio and gym time in. I just want to sit around and relax..... something I do not have time to do.

    I am sure this is just a phase and hopefully things get better.

    As dark as you are I probably wouldn't even bother with tanning agents.

    Just write if off as a bad day. We all have them, whether in prep or not. Push through it as I know you can.

    Come on charger! That’s not the bad ass dark mofo that I know. You fuck shit up everyday. Push through that shit. You know as well as I do that you love this. Deep down inside you love pushing yourself so hard you want to quit but you don’t. Reach down between your legs and squeeze your nuts(not too hard, just hard enough to hurt a little) then realize that the pain is only temporary.

    Don’t you quit on me you son of a bitch. You are the baddest mother fucker walking the streets. Conduct yourself accordingly.

    You know Obs will call you a pussy. Don’t give him the satisfaction.

    Some asshole put this on my fortune cookie... Probably it was meant for you:

    "It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."

    It was probably a ninja... So I think you better listen.

    I would like to thank everyone. The mental aspects sometimes get to me. I try to be the model bodybuilder and I strive for perfection. The frustration sometimes gets the best of me.

    This morning when I looked at myself, I saw someone 8 weeks out- I am 2 1/2 weeks out. I looked at myself tonight and I am not as bad as I saw this morning.

    I can just picture GH with his little charger doll and putting a pin in his knee making it hurt, putting one in his head causing the head games. LOL

    I essentially leave the house at 4:30 am and do not return until 8:30 pm. Thank God GH talked me into LISS.
    I would not be able to do HIIt.

    I worked out tonight however I cheated. Wifey saw me dragging my butt and made a comment . I pulled out my ephedrine and caffeine. I actually had a good cardio and workout.
    I will have some pics later this week.

    You know I’ll beat you like a red headed stepchild if you start dragging ass. That’s all the motivation you should need.

    You are doing great and you’re almost there. You will finish strong. I know you will.

    I need someone to explain my hemoglobin to me..
    Previously, when high on tren , I would need to give blood (lack of breathe).
    Th last 2 or 3 high tren cycles, my hemoglobin is on the low end.
    Today I donated and the first reading was 12.4 and it was too low. They took my other finger on the other hand and it was 14.1.

    Why isnít it high?? Previously I would have to give every 30 days to just do cardio.

    In the hot desert here in Mexicali, Mexico Actually it doesnít look too bad. Only 105 today as a high.
    Time to go for cardio and bicep and triceps workout. I know the gym wonít have the a/c on so I will have to be ready for a sweat bath. LOL. Iím used to it...: or I used to be.
    16 days to go!!!!! I had radio frequency done today to tighten the loose skin.
    Time to kick ass and take names. LOL

    Good news!!! I am taking 1/2 a vacation day. I am only doing cardio and workout once today. I am feeling great again- must GH the witch Dr. poked the right side of my dolls head so I would feel good.
    I went to the gym and a friend that I hadnít seen for awhile started checking my skin to see how thin it was- my veins were popping from the heat outside.
    I had a bunch of people comment how full I looked. GH has given me the knowledge that I didnít have before, now it is up to me to apply it.
    I did screw up though.... I gave blood. GH gave me the knowledge of why I shouldnít do that before a show .
    Itís amazing..: I have been competing for 6 years now and I still am learning. I learn game changing things each year. I will give a recap after the show of the major things I have learned.
    More photos tomorrow with better lighting.

    I am a big fan of Jimi Hendrix. Here is an unorthodox version of the Star spangled Banner. Jimi doesnít think itís unorthodox, he thinks itís beautiful ( see 4 minute mark)
    BTW Hendrix served in the 101 airborne Screaming Eagles.

    Take a picture and let’s see. It should look bigger with the quad and ham showing instead of just the ham.

    Did legs yesterday. I pushed too hard. My knee is killing me and I cannot walk straight. I was looking forward to cardio today. Not today!!!
    I will work bicep/triceps/ and medial delts.
    Stomach doesnít feel to good . I think I doubled my already high dose of MT2.
    I had a bunch of syringes prepared but I am sure that I mixed them up. I brought enough SR9009 for the 4 days in a syringe. But which one??
    I need my leg to get better quickly. I cannot stop cardio. I need deeper abs.

    Looking awesome brother!
    You are motivational to me big time.

    You mentioned your leg/knee bothering you and needing to do cardio. Have you ever tried a krank cycle (itís basically a spin bike setup for your arms/upper body)? If your gym has one I would definitely give it a spin. Just take the seat apparatus off and do it standing though if your gym has one. I used to do hit cardio on one and it is intense to say the least, also gives a ridiculous arm and shoulder pump!

    Countdown to July competition

    I decided to change the theme a little bit. I am no superhero or special person . Anyone can do what I am doing if you put your mind to it, however I do want to talk about what it takes from my point of view. I either go all out or I donít do it.... whatever it is. There is just an on and off button, there is no adjustment.
    You need to become very selfish with your time. First come your priorities- cardio/ gym and then you can attend to others needs.
    Once I put my earphones in, Itís my time. Iím nonsociable, but friendly. Donít you dare make me wait so you can text. I will ask if I can work in with you while you rest- I really mean text- but Iím friendly. I just want my workout to flow. It has to flow. I need that mentality. Please, please, please, donít fuck with my workout. You are on your own if you do: the friendly person turns unfriendly. I take it personally.
    You need to expect the unexpected... you will suffer injuries or health issues and you need to be able to adjust on a dime. I hate this part. I like to have everything planned out well in advance, every single preparation I have had something make me deviate. I do adapt, but I hate it, it was not my plan.
    I strive for excellence. I do not have the genetics, but I have the willpower to keep going. My best workouts are actually the days I do not want to go to the gym. I need to take advantage of every minute, every set, every rep.
    I try to make up family time when I finish the gym/cardio. You can never make it all up though. I have been married for 27 years and my competing puts a strain on the relationship. She does not like me competing because she knows that the gym comes first.
    I have it in my blood now. How much better can I become? Seeing how one can transform their body is simply amazing. The human body is so freaking complex, yet I can control it. I do not depend on anyone else- this is all me. With that being said, there have been many people helping me with my journey. I do not want to downplay any assistance that I have received because every little bit helps. GH has made me feel like a child in a candy store by opening my eyes away from the norm. Yes, I used to be on the bandwagon. Once I started following the teachings of GH, I started growing faster.

    I need to become better each workout and each year. How much of a transformation can I do in a year?
    The mental aspect...:: this is where I suck. In the gym with weights is a breeze, I am talking about moods. You work so hard and push yourself to the limits, if you donít see the results that you want or something is stopping you from making. The progress that you want, then you get depressed. This depression is so painful. Even though it may not be true, you feel like a loser. You let yourself down and all of the people that root you on. Your mind also plays games on you. You look at yourself one minute and you look good, and the next, all you find are flaws and you look like crap. Sometimes it is so bad that you want to say,Ēfuck this, Iím no good at itĒ. That is where perseverance comes in and you say that you are going to fix this fucking mess no matter what. Supporters of what you do play a major role in the mental aspect. They make it easier to get back on the horse. Sometimes the supporters believe more in yourself than you do. You just need to feed off of them.

    The above is what I am about and the sacrifices of this lifestyle. There is no way that I can give this up at this time. It is like heroin, you love the feeling of pushing your limits and seeing where they take you ( I have never experienced heroine, but from what Iíve been told). Anyone can do it however not everyone is willing to make the sacrifices necessary to do this or want to put forth the effort.
