14 Weeks Out

Yesterday I met with my fitness compadre, Deke, to go over my new diet, training program, and supplement regimen. It was an important time to meet because I will be leaving Saturday to go on vacation and as soon as I get back I start my diet and start getting serious about preparing for the competition. By the way you can learn more about the Bluegrass Championship show coming in October. Just visit for more information about the cost of tickets, the time and location.

Since I will not focus too much on my training while on vacation I did a little preparation last night to make it easier to prepare my foods and follow this new schedule of dieting and taking supplements when I return. I made a shopping list for my initial visit to the grocery store so that I will know exactly what to buy and how much of it for one week. It helps having a grocery list so that I'm less tempted to buy things I don't need. I also updated my food journal to keep me on track each day with what I can eat and to eat the correct portion sizes as well. I will be eating five meals per day and taking several different types of supplements, most of the ones I use are from Beverly International. I am also planning on buying a food scale to weigh out food as they are packaged for my meals each day. The diet is strict. I am very limited with what I can eat but with a little creativity hopefully I won't get bored with eating the same foods.

None the less, I am excited and nervous about this journey. Thank goodness for Deke. He has been generous with his time and help. I can't say how much I appreciate it!
