What the Hell Happened?

If you have been wondering what happened at the Vancouver Pro Am and why I have kind of dropped of the face of the earth for the last few days... then this YouTube video will explain everything for you.

I can say the Vancouver Pro Am did not go as I wanted it to go, I am very disappointed in myself for not bringing my best to the stage even though it was not intentional. Everything in life happens for a reason good and bad, we learn from both situations and decide how we are going to use the information to improve ourselves moving forwards.

What's in store for me next? I'm not sure but long term I will be focusing more on health and family and perhaps just a tad bit less on the body building side but it will always be a passion of mine.


1 Day Out to the Vancouver Pro Am

One more sleep to go now and I everything I have worked so hard for will be over before I know it. So many thoughts going through my head right now? What is the competition like? What kind of shape is my competition in? What are the judges looking for, bulky or shredded or maybe both? Will I get my posing right, remember to smile and relax...

All I know is I have done everything I planned on doing and for the most part I feel like I nailed it. This is the best I can be at this point in my life with what I have been able to do. Is that enough? We will find out...

Watch my 1 Day Out to the Vancouver Pro Am YouTube Video and follow me along through my day as I check in and register for the show and eat some crazy food :)


2 Days Out to the Vancouver Pro Am

Only 2 more sleeps to go till I finally get to step on stage at the Vancouver Pro Am. All my hard work will come to a single moment on stage where I get to show all my hard work.

So back to right now... In this video I share every meal I eat thought the day as I start to carb load eating around 350 grams of carbs which I can tell you was awesome! Tomorrow I get to eat close to 500 grams of carbs, even more awesome!

I even managed to get some gym photage, don't expect too much since the camera angles and lighting are not so good but you will get an idea. 


3 Days Out to the Vancouver Pro Am

I get more and more excited the closer I get to stage day at the Vancouver Pro Am. There are many reasons why... Firstly I have trained so hard I just want to get on the stage and see how I do, did I do enough? Is there more work to be done? I also enjoy the reintroduction of carbs into my diet, when you take them out for a while and then bring them back in they sure taste good. And of course there's all the sweets and other yummy stuff on show day that I rarely eat but on this day it is almost a must. I also really love my pre-contest meals where I get to load up a bit on foods that have been taboo for a while. Of course there is that post contest celebration dinner, that one's always epic!

I guess most of all I really just want to do well and present myself the best that I can, where ever that places me I will be happy with it since I feel I have done everything in my power to bring a newer and better version of myself to the stage.

Watch my 3 Days Out to the Vancouver Pro Am YouTube Video where I talk about these topics and also show a little posing update video so you can get an idea of my current conditioning.


Elite Physique Magazine Model Search 2018

6 Days till my Vancouver Pro Am Show but today I will have some fun and strut my stuff for a bit on the same stage I will be competing at in less than a week. I signed up for this Elite Physique Magazine model search knowing full well they are simply not looking for 40+ year old guys to highlight in their magazine but that's the way it goes and so for me this is simply an opportunity to get some practice in and meet some new people and catch up with friends from before.

Again I am feeling some of the mind games on this day and so I talk about my feelings a bit but I keep it real and to be honest I am already feeling better about things near the end of the day while I type this out.

At the end of the day all I can ever do is my very best, what happens after that is not up to me :)
