tell me about it JohnV!
8 competitors in the middleweight class and all three of us were in the same class.
Jimi placed 3rd out of 8
Robert placed 5th out of 8
I placed 6th out of 8
I am VERY frustrated and confused. Mainly because everyone keeps telling me I did awesome and that I placed well in between prejudging and the evening show and awards and then I get a bum placing. TWICE in a row now.
Actually, after they called my name for 6th place there was a huge gasp and then voices of disapproval from audience members that weren't even a part of us and had no clue who I was or what we were doing there. So I know everyone isn't just being nice to me.
I just don't get it. Why?????
It's just really aggravating to have EVERYONE tell you that you are going to rock and place well and be placed high and then have the exact opposite happen.
What pisses me off even more about this competition is that during the judging the judges placed their 4 favorite competitors in the front and then the weaker ones in the back after viewing us all in a straight lineup. After doing that and going through us, they called ME out from the back weaker 4 group and asked me to pose with the top 4. I GOT A CALL OUT and only to be in the lower part of the bottom rung..... Sigh....
TO TOP OFF THE NIGHT; we got back to the hotel and as getting out of the van thendanisays was play wrestling me into a head lock. I tried to avoid getting my tan stuff all over her beautiful outfit and my trophy fell out of my had and got BEHEADED. I stormed off and threw out two cuss words (something i rarely ever do and especially not amongst a large crowd); grabbed my phone and threw it into the weeds. Picked it up and ran into the room to shower alone and get all the tan stuff off me.
There's no use in venting and lashing out at the people you love. I never have and never will. It is a MAJOR pet peeve of mine. My father always did it to me and our entire family; still does. My sister is a culprit as well. I'm more like my mother in that sense. DON'T take your day out on me. Nothing makes me more upset. I didn't do anything to you. Just a tidbit about my persona
So no matter what the situation I live by the golden rule.
Anyhow, it's all good and this year I will get to be on my game all year round and come back strong and leaner greaner and meaner!!!!! >:-) It's been a wild ride. Thanks everyone for being a part of it, sharing the journey and most importantly... making it possible!!!!
Ok poolside for last 3 hours with odidnetne, dave vs robzilla, thendanisays and now back in the room laying low. We're all going to do some post show interviewing with bvp663 shooting. Then raw vegan ehtiopian cuisine to follow!!! Possibly another trek to the personal training cool studio we found (more about that another time) and ....gasp.... the mountain again??? But ONLY if there is MORE than enough time with broad daylight and in a large group
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
