You all are awesome!! Thanks for the support!
Today was my last gym session before Saturday, I shaved all of my body hair, feels weird with no arm hair. Last time I shaved my arms I was in elementary school.
Getting my nails done tommorow and picking up some earings to wear, the suit is being overnighted and should (better) arrive Friday. I'm almost glad it's late, the designer asked for updated measurments and I had lost a few inches in my waist (not to mention a few pounds). Getting excited to see what I'll look like all oiled up and tan! (I'll try to post some picks the night before)

YOU will be AMAZING on stage! I was really impressed when I saw you in person weeks ago!

Wish I could be there, but Vegan Essentials and I will be cheering for you from Wisconsin.

You'll rock and I'm so excited to hear about it!

Me too, in life and in competition! :)

Just focus when you're up there, know that it is only for a short period so give all that you have. Focus on breathing, contracting muscles, smiling, and putting your best foot forward, best pose forward and best effort.

All will go smoothly, will be amazingly fun and you may be hooked. That is how I got into it. Competing is so much fun!

Nothing like it.

All the BEST!

PS I just agreed to speak at DC VegFest in Sept. so see you again soon!

I can congratulate you on your hardware when I see you.

I took this pic 2 days ago at a hardcore training center:

speaking of crepes.....


dieting down for a show sure has given me a huge amount of inspiration for my baking. I'll be making rocky road pancakes, something with the butterscotch chips I found, vegan cashew cream cannoli crepes (and/or cupcakes), I bought dried pineapples with chili powder on them and will be using them in some type of chocolate cupcake.

Also, I am throwing a vegan baby shower for my friend so I'm making samples of the dessert and foods or that- it's a jungle theme so I'm sticking with a lot of coconut and banana flavors for dessert and tropical/exotic foods for the rest. There will be about 70 people at the shower!! if all goes well I should just open a catering business already.lol

in other unrelated news- I'll be a teaching assistant this semester for a criminology class that I'm super stoked about!! I'll get paid and get to come to this class and learn for free. sweet!

Thanks everyone for your support!

results: nothing!

I did debut (there were about 20 of us), novice tall (again about 15) and open tall (also 20). The competition was stiff, everyone looked amazing! I was a little surprised that I didn't place in anything- especially when I saw some of the people who did place! I guess you never know what they're looking for.
I'll upload a bunch of photos when I get a chance.


My focus now is to eat super clean (after a bit of fun food for a bit) and focusing on putting on more muscle- I really leaned out quick for this show. I may aim for another next May (Since I'm planning on going to Europe in June).

Let's talk soon. I want to hear all about it.

Congratulations on competing! Many people (including on this forum) will talk about competing and 99% never will. It's awesome to get up on stage and be competitive.

I'm also surprised you didn't place. I didn't see any photos in the final week or two but when I saw you in person 4 weeks out you looked like you had an amazing shape, great shoulders, arms, and conditioning seemed to be on pace too.

No worries at all. I placed in the lower half of my first ever contest. The next one I came back and won and then I competed at the natural bodybuilding world championships the next year. So you never know how you and your body will respond to the new challenge. I believe great things are in your future.

See you in a few weeks at DC VegFest.

Congratulations on going through all the contest preparations, all the pre-contest dieting and for doing what most never will.....competing on stage.

All the BEST my friend!

Robert
