You look great already! I would kill for a nice stomach like that!

As for photos, my only suggestion is natural light and no flash.

:D Thanks, we need to have a gym takeover sometime. I don't like not having anyone to work out with (not to mention spot me)

I'll have to try the natural light. This might work for my abs shots, but most of the natural light is in the front of my house. maybe I'll just have to shoot in a bathing suit and keep my neighboors wondering :lol:

I hope so, I won't be able to make the competition on Aug.15, I'll be out of town (it's my only vacation this year, the very short weekend in between the summer semester and my last semester) I'm hoping to be ready to compete early next year sometime. gives me a bit more time to get my arms looking awesome now that I'm a bit more able to handle heavier weights with the shoulder. Are you still thinking of competing in DC this year?

Well lets all workout. Name the time and the place get Myke out and what not and let me know. I work in new Carrolton so if a weekday you guys are free or if there is a week end you guys want to get fit let me know. Hit me up on my cell. Let me know if you dont have it. I am always pretty much down to workout hard.

Haven't been on in what seems like a while... My 1t semester is done (got an A in Spanish) but I will most likely be on here once in awhile. I started my next semester and am taking 2 classes, cognitive psych...NOT MY THING!!!

I will try to keep everyone posted on my progress (or lack thereof :lol: )

My fiance is doing a Ph.D. in cognitive psych...SNORE. I'm in psych too but I'm in social, it's more interesting. :)

Cognitive psych is kicking my butt!!! ahh! the average in the class on quizzes is an 11 out of 20, which in my professor's sick mind is a 'C'. In other news, I am officially applied to grad school for sociology (which I enjoy SO SO SO much more than psych)

Question-
I am looking to enter a fitness model or bikini comp early next year (hopefully one not far from this area because of school I won't be able to travel too far)- how can I find out what comps will be going on next year (and on this side of the country?)


I am going to my 4th shoulder appt. today. I am demanding an MRI and am done with the stupid meds! I refuse to take that crap when I have no clue what is even wrong.

By the way I don't have your cell... We'll have to see about that work out session. Days are pretty packed right now (we just moved)
Once we get all settled in we plan on having a little house warming, of course our VBBF family is more than welcome :D

ANYONE???

Anyhow...

I have another MRI tomorrow, I feel a little bit more hopeful with this one. They are looking to see if there is any compression of my thoracic outlet area. They're imaging my brachial plexus and supraclavical. I have been doing some research online and found this: TOS or Thoracic outlet syndrome, I can relate to MANY of the symptoms. So hope I can get some answers. I don't plan on giving up on this if the MRI comes back with nothing. Apparently TOS is often misdiagnosed.

Good luck at your MRI. I hope you get some answers.

Thanks lobsteriffic,

I had the MRI. I might have to go back for one with contrast (never done that before and it honestly scares the crap out of me!)

Have another appt. with the ortho next week do go over my MRI, i'll keep you all posted. In the meantime I'll be living in pain (that wont seem to go away!!)
