Never sell yourself short - and your 1st place likely had a lot to do with the 'have fun' part. Congrats man - well deserved! :headbang:

Now the proof is in the veggies, ain't it? :govegan:

..tnx for being an inspiration!

Well aint this just the shit.

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment of life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing

Thanks everyone. Im kind of beating myself up right now, because even though I won first place I still cut way too many calories out and looked flat in the legs(and smaller) compared to just a regular day for me.

The next show I do I will have to have someone accountable for me. Not just me, but someone else who will make sure I cut NOTHING out of my normal diet!!!! I look back at pics from say Feb and I looked tons better(my opinion). The professional photos are not up yet, but when they are ill go and get them and post.

No, I havent worked out yet. Hell, the show was just Saturday and my whole back and calves are still sore as crap! I was tired most of the day too. Im not eating proper yet, but I will cause im already getting burned out on junk. Yesterday I had nothing but cereal. Today, Ive had cereal, 4 vegan grilled cheese sammiches, more cereal, some mini larabars and thats about it....

I looked at some pics from my wife's facebook and I have to say that I look weird compared tothe other competitors. Yeah I know they eat meat and have enhancement pills/oils, but I need not make excuses as to how I look. I just think I cut way too much out. Hell, leading up to the show past few days I was eating almost all carbs and no protein cause I got tired of eating tofu and anything else processed has way too much salt in it.....

Ill figure it out some day.

It's a tough thing to figure out....guys like Jay Cutler who have been competing fro 20 years are still figuring it out and it's only only apparent and obvious, but they admit it too.....it's a unique sport and we're all trying to figure it out, from Ronnie Coleman to Jimi Sitko.

Enjoy your break man....after last year's final contest I didn't go to the gym for months :) It's a long break but even Ronnie would take months off......some only take a week off or so...do whatever feels right.

But get some rest and some calories. Well done champ.
