Stop. Rewind. Play.

After reading through the blog yesterday, or last night rather, I decided I really did need to rededicate myself to what I want to accomplish. I’m so overwhelmed, having taken a huge (read $50k) cut in pay to get back to work, and get the job I really should have, that I became paralyzed. I went to the BFL webpage and looked at what previous champions ate, since I know what my problem is. I put the book where I’d pick it up rather frequently, and I planned next week’s food.


Oatmeal and FF cottage cheese

Snack 1

Beef or turkey jerky
FF yogurt


Chicken breast and rice, probably with brocoli

Snack 2

String cheese


Baked potato DRY


LF ricotta

Beginning pictures to come in a day or two.

It’s time.

Final approach

I’m ending a 84 day cycle this week and boy did I stink up the place. This morning’s numbers:

Weight 214
Fat 37%
BMI 36.5

OK, kind of sucky, but I’m starting to get things going in the right direction. I’m competing on Saturday at my favorite venue BodyTribe Fitness in Sacramento. I hope it’s a nice day and they open up the dock doors. I just dig that place and I like the organization that Scott Taylor runs. He’s such a low key dude. It’s a totally enjoyable experience. I should also see my buddy from Walnut Creek. She weighs in around 104 and benchs around 135 AND is a US attorney. I think she works for the Supreme Court. Anyway, she’s cool too. I’m ready to compete.

I played golf last weekend and got the award for most for your money. Yeah, high stroker, that was me. I need to get my butt to the range. Hopefully the better weather and longer days will get me going in the right direction.
