New leg routine in place and it is pretty intense, so well see how I make out with it. Pushing leg day to Friday's, Sat & Sun become totally recover days, will eat clean those days but no w/o (unless I go freediving or kayaking this weekend).

Have decided to pass on the next show and hit the one at the end of the month. Girl's start school on Tuesday, and if I have to diet for comp I'll be out of it and temper mental a few days for their first couple weeks of school. They need my full "brain" during this time. 1 of my girls is transferring from the other county (since the incident). And the other 2 are transitioning from being home schooled. All girls have been active in the community events, sports, neighbor kid's etc. So they know kid's there, just a big change.

Trying to keep myself out of trouble :D 'tis very hard ya know, lol

Daughter's B-Day dinner was great I love spending time with her 8) ..... my baby's growing up :cry:

The Good: I have a plan!
The Bad: Still recovering from last comp (putting back on weight)
The Ugly: Starting to get a bit worried regarding the financial aspect of having no help raising the children .... I have no family to fall back on ... I have been homeless and hungry before. By God the will never happen again. So praying to whomever that my business continues to be profitable.

dont know what the "Incident" is that your daughter had, but I am sorry she had it. :(

Sorry to hear that the family and the father are not helpful with the children. :(

Glad that you are resting your body and you have a plan for your legs. :)

Hope things work out for you in the business. :)

really like that music your son put together for you . :)

She was going to school in the neighboring county. When I moved here I tried to battle for res. custody to have her moved here, since the school's were better. Was successful in moving my son, since he and his father had a literal knock down blow out, and my son won't have anything to do with him since. But the judge didn't want to move her out of her "comfort" and friends, even though she wanted to. Anyway fast forward to now 3 years later. He tells her to get the f out and he never wants to see her again. Tells me that as far as he is concerned he has not children and don't expect a dime. Anyway she is here and she is safe, and loves this area. Our schools are higher rated and more affluent where I am. And no I won't seek a dime from him. I think we have all had enough and no need to keep after any more, he's better totally out of the picture.

My son did a great job, I'm so proud of him. :) He begins college this year :shock: He turns 17 in a couple weeks ..... wow time flies!

Yesterday:
20 min cardio, interval training on incline tread. Felt like I needed a cardio, but kept it down to 20 min. Weight is finally starting to recover this round. Weighed in at 110 this AM.

Back and Biceps this afternoon after work.

Actually went out last eve (only for a couple hours) with a Gentleman I had seen a couple of times. Not generally what I go for, but that was kind of the point since I can't seem to get it right. This one was nice, a gentleman, a bit shy, financially stable and we are the same age (in around). So I went out with "Mr. Nice Guy" in stead of the type "A"'s who have been giving me grief. And I'm afraid we just aren't hitting it off well. He's sweet, but is also very honest. He's seeing a couple of ladies. They may not have the looks, but I have the divorces and children (baggage) and he said as much about "coming from 2 diff places". I understand where his coming from, re his point of view, just a shame that I am getting penalized for my past. Anyway, then he starts to come on to me ..... not real strong, but I was think yeah right buddy. You just tell me we're coming from 2 diff worlds and you want what??? So much for the not my type either!

The Good: I still hanging on
The Bad: Last Eve was disappointing
The Ugly: I'm still hanging on which mean, I'm waiting for "the next thing" to come at me

Yes, he is the same one. Perhaps I do need the Vegan Mafia! :lol:

Rethinking the next show. Girls Dad said he would be more than happy to stay the full weekend here with them. That's the last week he'll be here he's moving permanently. He would spend some final quiet time with them since he won't be focused on me (I'd be away for comp.)

Weight plummeting again (yes, still eating heavier) 104 today ..... and I was fully clothed.

Smoke filled my house this morning , yep washing machine motor burnt up! Yet one more thing because God still hates me.....

The Good: I woke up again this morning
The Bad: washer went up
The Ugly: My house is wrecked since I am not here much the girls have just gone wild. So they will spend their entire day cleaning while I try to get a repair guy out on this weekend holiday (yeah , that'll happen).

Hey SeaSiren,

You are quite an inspiration! Your photos are amazing! Wow - what legs! They really are Barbie legs. How tall are you?

I admire your determination to be healthy and active and support your kids. I have 2 children that I am raising on my own but they do see their dad every other weekend. He feeds them junk food and puts them in front of the TV (isn't there a law against that?) Anyway, I do what I can to educate them on health and fitness and they are following suit (sorry, got a little side tracked there!).

Anyway, my utmost respect to you, Girl. You are awesome!

The very best to you that positive opportunities come your way.

:D

Thank-you! :) I'm only 5'5" (and 104 right now) but I have long legs for my height. I sat a horse before I could walk and trained horses for years. I knew about the leg length because that's why I would win my equitation classes when I competed in the horse shows. The judges always commented on my leg length. However, thus I have a short torso, it my not look it, which is why I concentrate on sculpting certain areas to hide the short torso and also my suit choice. The legs have been a problem, since I have stressed them all my life it takes a lot to stress them out to make them respond. That and the only pair of flat shoes I own are my workout shoes. I stay in heels all day so with shoes I am 5'9"! :lol:

No worries! I didn't take it like that at all. I just still feel "weird" when someone says look good.

SeaSiren, I think you're great! And.....I was looking back through all of the Introductions over the entire history of this website and I think your's was #3 all-time, even before my intro. So you've been here from the beginning and I love having you here.

Now we have lots of other competitive vegan athletes in the bodybuilding/fitness/figure industries and I believe there are more in figure than anything else at the moment! Thanks for helping lead the pack!

All the best!

Thank-you Robert! You have always been very positive and supportive. (Not to mention in awesome shape :wink: )



Busy Day set up for today. Had a rough one yesterday, the whole dizzy numbness thing was back and I had a tough time just walking etc. Luckily it went away. Stress has a bit to do with it I am sure. My son is taking the divorce badly and when I was trying to run around and clean and give direction to the girls on what they needed to do "chore wise" since all the repairmen were coming for various things (the house was a mess from my ex moving out and my daughter moving in, plus leaving and returning from comps and not being home much). He promptly unloaded on me curse words and all. Which got him a very calm "get out of this house, that conduct won't be tolerated here, you do not speak to me that way". So after a more than usual stressful morning of preparing the house plus all the smoke from the washer then him coming at me. My "thing" had kicked in full blown by the time I hit work.

Anyway, was better but weak by days end to pushed that new intense leg day to today. So as soon as I get enough coffee in me, 20 min cardio, than off to nail salon, tanning, clothes shopping for daughters for school (Just spend $450 on school supplies, that is insane!). Then that intense leg day with a few other errands thrown in, and have to at some point stop by the retail center, to bring one of my people up to date.

Gotta love my "days off". Get to go to that deck party tomorrow with "new guy". Like I said I am driving myself so I can leave if he is just terrible. "old Guy" keeps sending me friendly texts. It's interesting that he is, I'm being a bit vague to him. Perhaps he's still trying to "get his head around" my past. Either way I would consider (not sure would have to think about it more) seeing him again, but he should not expect anything but company, lol

Have a great weekend Everyone! It's a holiday weekend here, so traffic will be a bear!

Made it to the gym in time for leg day. Have to do it the gym since my new routine incorporates super sets on some of the machines. Most of the exercises are til failure. I barely walked out and am feeling it today! About darn near time! :lol:

Now for those of you following the saga which I call my life. Guy #2 (supposed to go to deck party today with). Texts me out of the blue yesterday ... "I miss you too" ..... ah hello? So I text him back "I don't think that was intended for me" Several seconds later "oh, it was a joke". Yeah right. Somebody is a player and just told one of the women he is playing that he misses her, which indicates that she is emotionally attached. I think NOT! Anyway I cancelled, he is NOT happy about it. I don't think anyone has dared cancelled on Mr Player before.

Cardio today as soon as I get motivated .... it will be 20 min on tread intervals. (and my legs are screaming, lol)
