June 27th 2010 Something To Look Forward To

OK, every time I say I will start doing this more often and then it seems to take even longer between posts. Just been so busy of late.

Where do I start? Well how about with myself LOL. Training has been great. Been noticing some real improvements, especially in my legs. I am taking an off day tomorrow. First one in almost three weeks. And please no one tell me I need to rest. I will scream. I know rest days are important. BUt been lifting heaveir and heavier. Wegiht is dissapointing. Last Monday I was 239lbs. Friday I was 241lbs. Now I am eating right and training right. So I know it is water or something but I am just a take everything negative type person. I did weight today and I will not share the results because tomorrow is a weigh in day for Danny J, and I dont want to say anything till then.

Also from June20th untill July 1st Danny has me cycling off most of my supplements. One thing I notice is a lack of energy when not having my Superpump. But I know the importance of cycling off so it is not a problem.

I just tonight found out that next Wednesday I get to go train with Sara Schumann. Real excited about that. It is in Cincinatti so a five hour drive, but well worth it. Sara is incredible. This is an honor for me. Outside of JT I ahve never trained with anyone excpet one occassion with Erika Shingary, which was also an honor. So I am very anxious for that.

I want to talk to the people who think they are giving me advice. Too many people try to. Some are trying to be nice I realize, but listening to too many people is harmful. Also it is at times condescending. I say that because it is advice you give to someone on their first day. I know more than some may think I do. Remember, I ahve two awesome trainers. Now tehre are some I listen to but for teh first part my main advice has to be Danny and JT. So while most of it is an attempt to help, it really doesn't. I do appreciate the help, but really it has a negative affect. Remember I once almost quit because too many people were telling me different things and it messed with my mind.

Will ahve weigh in results tomorrow.

June 16th 2010 The Macey Leigh post

OK OK, I suck at this. I want to update it more often but I am just so damn busy. This post will not be much about training, but in a sense, it is about training. I will explain shortly.

First I had some nice things said today. JT said he was amazed at how much stronger I have gotten. That means a lot. I did shoulders with him today and I am soooooorrrrreeee. But as we know, sore is good. Also IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Zoa Linsey commented on a Facebook post I made. She said "Welcome to being a bodybuilder, you can do it". So if the woman I think is the next Ms Olympia says welcome to being a bodybuilder, does that mean I officially am a Bodybuilder? I like to think so. Danny J said it was a huge compliment, and I kind of agree.

Cardio!!!!! People have told me my two 60 minute sessions are two much. Well guess what? Doing two ninety minute sessions now. Why? Again, I will explain shortly.

Now, you know my trainers, you know my supporters, I don't think I have to name them again. I have someone new and very special in my life. Macey Leigh. Macey and me are soon starting a business. A big big thing, that I cant say yet, but believe me it is big, and believe me, we are taking over, along with some for now two unnamed people. But Macey used to be just a girl on Facebook I talked to. Recently we have become very good friends. We text all day and talk often. Macey has helped me learn to ignore my haters. To believe in myself and to realize I can do this. Others have helped me with this as well. So earlier I said it isn't about training, but it is about training. See, Macey, in just a short time has helped me believe more in myself, and it has helped my workouts. I am more confident. Macey will be competing on November 20th. That allowed me to set a goal. I am down to 242lbs as of last weigh in. Down 50lbs. I do weigh in tomorrow so we will see. Anyway, my goal is to be at the show and weigh 190lbs. So that's 52lbs, and if reached it will be 102lbs in eleven months. I am going to reach that goal, because I have the best trainers, the best supporters, and now Macey. We are meeting in mid July to talk business and she said she would train with me. I hope so, it would be an honor. This is why two ninety minute sessions. Just for a little while. May sacrifice some muscle, but muscle does no good under fat. Lose the weight then focus entirely on adding as much muscle as I possibly can.

Who is Macey Leigh? One of the most beautiful women you will ever see, but even more beautiful on the inside. She is smart, she is funny, she is confident, she is encouraging,g and she is supportive. I felt comfortable even last night to when having a bad moment, I cried talking to her. But she cheered me up. Macey has been talking to me about some things in her life lately to. Macey, I want you to know, like I said, you are better. People can be jealous, hurtful, spiteful, insulting, and other things. But you will always come out on top. YOu talekd about fairytales not always having happy endings. Excuse my language, but bull shit. YOu are not a fairy tale. YOu are a living breathing person. You make your ending whatever you want it to be. To some this is insulting for me to say. And if people in the fitness industry read this, I may gain some new haters, but I really dont care. I have met a lot of awesome people in the industry, but I also ahve met or talekd to some of the most stuck up, egotistical, arrogant people I ever met, in the fitness industry. I can tell you things some competitors have told me about other competitors that meant one of two things. Either the one they talked about is an ass, or the one telling me the story is lying and therfor they are an ass. Luckily there are far more good than bad. BUt there are some who are simply amazing. Macey, you my dear, are amazing. So you write your own book, and it isnt a fairy tale. It is a biography. And the final chapter is going to be about Macey Leigh being on top of the world.

June 11th 2010

Well birthday came and gone. Thanks for all the nice birthday wishes on facebook. Maybe it is the diet, maybe it is the haters, but I really was about to quit. I wonder if at 34 I am too old to be good. Because dont forget I am a couple years at least from the stage. At first I just wanted to make Danny J proud, and I still do, but now I think I actually want to do good at this. So many talekd to me and set me straight, and I will forget someone so instead I say thanks to all of you. I talked with Danny J and she told me I can do this. If I am about to compete and dont like right, we just push it back.

See, I am used to failing at things, for once I want to not fail, I want to be good. What it all comes down to, is what I ahve said before, I am working hard for this moment, I deserve this moment, I am demanding that moment. I know I wont win, and hell even if I looked good enough, the politics wouldnt let me. But one thing is for sure, I can do good, and I will have the biggest damn cherring section ever.LOL

So please stay with me, because I am giving this my all. I am going full steam ahead ( I hate that saying and I went and used it anyway). THis is going to be my life, and I will do it.

No training today. Took a needed day off. Havent had one in awhile. BUt did weigh in and it was 245.0lbs. Which is down 47.8lbs overall and 27.2lbs in five or six weeks with Danny.

June 7th 2010 Big Things Happening

OK, so it has been awhile. Sorry. Big things happening. I mean huge. As in a career doing what I love doing. Macey Leigh and me have a business plan and will be partnering with two other amazing women. I am so excited but for now details must wait. BUt trust me, it is huge and with the four of us, I believe we can be the best at it.

As far as me. Weighed in today and am at 248.0lbs. For those counting, that is down 44.8 overall and 24 since DAnny J took over 5 weeks ago. Training has been good. Started doing Hany Rambod's FST-& at the suggestion of Vanessa Prebyl and am loving that. Great pump at the end of the workout. Changed my routien around a little and am now doing five days on and one day off instead of four and one. Works better for me. Lifting heaveir than ever and the other day set three records. 1,100lb leg press, 600lb hack squat, and 300lb leg extensions. My legs are my definite strong part Noticing, finally, some definition in my shoulders as well, which is great.

Been getting lots of requests for help with diet lately. Sorry, but if I knew enough I wouldnt have Danny J doing it for me. My suggestion is find someone you trust to work with, but really it isnt me. It is flattering to be asked, but I do not have that knowledge and am not qualified.

I set high goals and standards for myself. I do that because the higher they are set the harder to achieve. I do not want to reach some easy goal and be satisfied. That breeds content, and I never want to be content. SO if I sem upset a goal wasnt reached it does not mean I am unhappy, as people seem to think.

It was said by Danny J that when I compete I am going to have a huge cheering section. Yeah, I probably will. That isnt cocky, it is just fact. Because I have so many people supporting me. I want each person to know I am humbled by that support. It means everything to me, and make me work that much harder. When I get on stage, it will be just as much for all of you as it is for me. I feel I owe it to you all to do this and do it right. So thank you all, and I hope you all will be there. I can't do this without you
