I'm getting a bit excited now. It has been about a year since I last competed and I'm just really getting into bodybuilding again.

I compete in 36 hours.

I still feel like I'm too thin, and don't have the muscle size and thickness and density that I'd like to have but I can't do much about it in the next day and a half.

In some photos I look better than I've ever looked. In other photos I just look skinny.

I'll give a report in a couple of days. It should be a lot of fun!

Check out the Bodybuilding section for my contest details.

Today I'm just relaxing. That's it. I haven't done anything yet. I woke up at 10:20AM and have just been e-mailing, listening to music and hanging out.

Later I might get a massage and I'll prepare some asparagus and some yams and do some tanning later tonight.

I'm just relaxing since I'm 24 hours away from competing. I only compete a couple of times a year so I just have to focus.

I don't even think I'll do cardio today. My body won't change that much in 24 hours since I'm a natural bodybuilder. I'm reducing water intake and doing a carb load but other than that, not much will change. I may do some biceps curls later tonight but that will be it, if that.

Today is about rest and recovery. I guess I better start putting my posing routine together! :)

I'll work on that soon.

What time are you thinking to come by for that massage?

Around 4PM if that is cool ?

Sometime around 4-4:30PM would work well for me if that works?

I'm hoping to head back home by 5-6PM because I have to do some tanning stuff and do final prep work for my contest (prepare stuff for tomorrow buy any last minute items I'll need, etc.).

Thanks! I'll be on stage in a little over 12 hours. I better go sleep now. I learned another forum member or two will be coming so that will be nice. We'll have a small crowd of forum members and other vegans in the community.

I'll post results soon :)

As site admin it is funny that I can't figure out how to add a new avatar properly, even after reading the instructions :)

One time it took me like 2 hours and then I read the instructions and it was fine but this time I just can't figure it out to get it the size I want it to be.

Oh well, off to bed soon. It has been nice eating whatever I like again (after my contest) and I'll keep it up for a while. I still plan to compete June 9th.

The site has a size limit, so you'll have to host it on a different site and use the "Link to off-site Avatar:" option after hosting it somewhere, like imageshack or photobucket.

Yeah, I always use photobucket, I'm just way too blonde even with tanning cream in my hair, turning it more of a brawnsberry frost color.

I'll sort it out tomorrow I think. Time for a bit more food and some sleep.

I can't always be superman.

I forgot to re-size it first. I thought it would do it on it's own. So I'm cool now :)

Thanks.

Time to eat big! Maybe I'll try to go to Nicholas with xdarthveganx today or tomorrow.

I think I'm going to persue some fitness modeling before I get too old! I've known for a while that I'm pretty photogenic and I think I can take advantage of the fact that I've worked hard to be fit too. So that is typically a winning combination.

I'll start taking photos soon. I was messing around after pre-judging at my bodybuilding event and got some "cute" photos out of it :)

I was a guest judge at a comedy show tonight in Portland. It was awesome!!!!

Anyway, I was flexing for the crowd since I compete tomorrow and I hurt my shoulder :) So it's funny I hurt myself showing off the night before competing. It's not bad and only hurts when I do most muscular poses and shoulder flexes. No pain at all flexing arms, chest, or back so I'm good.

The comedy show was great! Thanks to all those who came out. C.O. was the organizer of the event and it was sweet!

I just woke up and my shoulder is quite sore! I hope I can still flex properly in a few hours when I compete.

Time to get ready and head to Corvallis. I'll post results, updates and photos later on this weekend.

Shoulder is still bothering me :( My results in Corvallis weren't great but I had a lot of fun and met some really cool people.
