Ok so I decided to finally get my butt in gear and start a journal here as well.
I am currently 9weeks and 6 days away from my first bodybuilding competition on April 3rd.
-weight-will have to do that today. lol
-bf% - no idea. Ive been told 10-11, even though I think thats absurd but darned if I know how to guesstimate.
-Ill take measurments later today and post them as well.
Im following a variation of carb cycling, not exactly to TP's place but very alike.. I have a very experienced and knowledgable person helping me complelty prepare for this, posing, diet, training and the most imporatant factor.. motivation! diet will remain like this until 6 weeks out.
YAY! So glad you have a journal here now! Just curious, do you think its necessary yo measure veggies?? I never do. Oh, and your carbs are way low on a high carb day-is that simply cause you are competiting? OH. P.S. Good luck too-even though you are already on a roll
Jen...your high carb day is a normal carb day for me. No wonder your already so lean at 9 weeks. That'll give you room to play with when it comes to getting a lil closer. I think your on track! Keep it up!
Psst.....don't stress out over the legs! They will be there when ya nned them.
Jill, to be honest those are eyeball measurments on the veggies. haha I just eat as many to be full. I really dont count them to exacts at this point. and yes for a high carb day my carbs are a bit lower then TP's plan but this is what I have been given for the comp diet from my coach.. as he sees me pretty much on a daily basis or so and sees how I respond.
gwcaton, your too sweet. inspiration? gosh darn.. your silly! thanks though.
JBL, well this is actaully on a bit of a lower side of carbs for me, when I was bulking I was getting in around 220-230g carbs/day to gain.
hmm I took a pic of my legs at the begining of Januray. I should post that up.. they have a ways to go for sure! but they are coming to say the least. thanks again for the reassurance!

Your doing bbing, so you should be fine!
How much cardio are you doing? I take it that your doing a natural show?
Post the legs! We wanna see!
well the first show that I am doing is not a natural show sadly. I would have rather done that, a lil more fair on my part eh. but thats ok, we'll have to see what Ive got in me. its not always size that wins but presence... *crossing fingers*
cardio right now is 2-3 days a week. soon to bump it up.. its going to be one of my ways to tweak, so we're going to add more soon. did I mention I hate cardio? lol
Ill post my leggies up in my gallery in a few! just for you. haha be easy on them tho. :o
