I have a crazy schedule! I went to bed around 5:30AM and got up around 10AM and really didn't feel super well. But I had some Vega Infusion, some bananas, and I feel pretty good now.

My schecule is just all over the place based on deadlines I need to make that keep me up on the computer late, or visitors here in town keeping me occupied until late, etc.

We've had more days with visitors than not over the past couple of months (SmartMonkeyAni, Tonya Kay, Brendan Brazier, Mogwai, etc.). I love it, just saying I have a strange schedule.

I'm still not 100% after getting this little cold, but I feel pretty good at the moment........time for more Vega! I put ginger in the smoothie too :)

I'm on another rough week of sleep! I've been staying up late quite a bit lately so I need to try to get that under control. I've been taking on new tasks and projects which has kept me up and quite busy in general.

Things are going well in general. I've had some great workouts, had an awesome time with Brendan this past week, and have been hanging out with oregonisaac quite a bit.

I'm also hanging out with C.O. and playing tennis which is cool and keeps me in shape.

I'll try to keep a blog going with some sort of content in it. Right now I'm just super super sleepy and waiting for davidtarrfoster to come home.

The Arnold Classic is this weekend so it will be interesting to see who wins. Most people here aren't into it, and I'm not much anymore but I'm still curious.

www.flexonline.com will have results later this weekend.

Well, I might just go lay down a bit. I still have some sliced orange to eat too.

I leave for L.A. tomorrow and it should be an awesome time. I'll be there for a week with Brendan Brazier and some other Vega people. We have dinner planned with VegNews Magazine and other dinners already arranged. Our Natural Product Expo is 4 days and I have 3 more days of hanging out after that.

VeganEssentials will be there too as well as organicathlete, Tonya Kay and others.

Good time awaits!

I love your topic line, "EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!"

I believe everything is awesome with you, and since nothing is inherently anything we have that choice!

Thanks for being a continual source of inspiration!

Will do. I might have to try to get a picture of you and I fake arm wrestling (it better be fake, you'll snap my twig arm with a mere flinch of yours!) for my girlfriend, she just got hit-and-runned by a school bus (don't worry, she wasn't hurt badly) and it would make her really happy :lol:

L.A. has been awesome so far! It is great seeing old friends and aquaintences and just having a fun time. It is pretty exhausting but we're working hard, networking, dining in style with awesome people in the industry and all is well.

I love Natural Product Expo West! Tomorrow I'll hang out with VeganEssentials and other cool people and I look forward to it.

Time to sleep!

I am loving Southern California right now!

Photos and details to follow, but I just trained on muscle beach in Venice this morning, staying on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood and kicking it with Brendan and his friends, Tonya Kay, and others.

Great time out here and the sun is soooooooo nice!

It keeps me blonde!

Thanks! Southern California was Great! Really, it was.....it was so nice not to have meetings, obligations, appointments, etc. that we all have to deal with when we're "home" or near "work." I did work for 4 days that I was there and usually it was a 12-hour day plus meetings and dinner meetings, but the next 3 1/2 days were amazing. Just Brendan and I totally relaxing and we also spent a bit of time with SmartMonkey Ani and Tonya Kay, both great people and friends of ours.

I'm back home now and back to "work" and seem to be behind on everything.

I look forward to more time spent in Southern California in the near future!

I'm off to Seattle this weekend and then back to Seattle again a month from now. Then as far as I know......L.A. will be my next stop :) unless I go somewhere in June before the July trip to the City of Angels.

Time to get back to blogging!

I actually like this kind of thing (journaling, blogging, write-ups and recaps, etc.).

10 days until my competition.

My thoughts........

I'm excited. I haven't competed in nearly a year and a I had a sub-par year last year on stage. I'm a bit nervous because it is a local contest and I think more friends than have ever come to one of my contests will be at this one.

I know that I don't have a lot of size and thickness and that I'll have to rely on my conditioning to look good up on stage. I think it will be a small contest with few entrees so I have no idea what my competition will be like. A bunch of us could get lumped together.

It will be fun for sure. I'm training pretty hard and I've been consistent for a couple of months now so that is good.

It's after midnight again and I never seem to get to bed as early as I want.

Time to eat a bit more and sleep. I'll try to start blogging again soon :)
