    I am lean and veiny and loving it! Official weigh in will be Thursday every week. Time to ROCK! YEAH BUDDY!

    On a serious note, I would like to take a moment to thank my AMAZING wife, Katie for all that she does. She does read my log, lol. I am addressing her directly below...

      Katie, you are the perfect wife. You gave up a VERY successful and lucrative career (she was Marketing Director for TWO multi-million dollar companies by the age of 24! She is THE marketing genius and I admire her) so that I could follow my dream to provide for our family and allow you to raise children.

My Whole Life, Period.

      While we still are not near the level your career would have taken us, we are loving life and helping people reach their goals and after seeing what happened to my father, I know that in your heart, like mine, you wake up every day, look yourself in the mirror, and smile proudly at what we are accomplishing. (note: my father lost his life to type 2 diabetes and died a VERY miserable death that took years to finally kill him).

      When I returned from Las Vegas, I saw your beautiful stomach and teared up. Our baby is growing and you look fantastic. Kambria ran up and gave me a hug. Although jet-lagged and stressed, that is now my fondest memory. I love you, and everything I do, including training, is for you and our children. I will live a long life and will shower you with all of the love you will ever need. Till death do us part.

    Sorry to bore everyone. I just had to say this.

    We MURDERED legs. It was tough and grueling and at the end Lin and I were sweating like that fat chick from Wilson Phillip's in leather pants. It was unreal! I did dumbbell leg curls and WOW, my inner hammies were on fire!

    Tomorrow, Lin and I will train shoulders and traps and I assure you that there will be a few "YEAH Buddy's" flying around the gym.

    My weight went DOWN another pound! This means I am raising calories and losing fat... brilliant! My metabolism is ON FIRE!

    Shoulders were great and both Lin and I are a mess from the week. We REALLY killed it this week! I felt strong and the intensity was unreal. We just kept motivating each other and it got hot in a Hurry.

    Today ENDS my one night a week refeed. I just cannot psychologically handle it and I have even written about this in the past. It is just too much and I do not like eating a lot of carbs at once. I will probably just turn this thing straight keto and prove to the world that carbs are NOT needed for growth!

    I will also probably add in a "cheat" of a nice, big salad every two days or so. Ruby Tuesday's has a good Salad Bar. I LOVE sushi, but the feeling after I ate was bad and even when I control my carbs, I just don't like them!

    Unfortunately, sushi has become the ONLY carb I enjoy. And this isn't a "fat gain phobia". This is just what I prefer to eat. The body is not a textbook and this MACHINE runs on protein and fat only it seems. YEAH BUDDY!

    The most important day in Katie and my marriage besides our children was yesterday. We were relaxing in bed at 1pm while Kami was napping and I brought up how it is unfortunate that my wedding band is too huge to wear. When we got married, I was over 240lbs. Now, not even close! Thus, the size 11 (I think) ring is HUGE.

    I told Katie enough is enough and that I will just get a new ring today. I want the world to know that I am married and just the symbolism to me as an old-school conservative is very important. We went to Sears and bought a $100 Tungsten Ring because it is durable and I am rough on jewelry. Sure, the bling-factor from Sears isn't high, but it isn't about the bling, it is about the love and symbolism.

    It feels like we are newlyweds again, believe it or not. We have been together over ten years and married for five and I love her more than ever and she is currently carrying our child number two.

    Last night was awesome. We went to dinner and the park with Kami and we sat in her room after giving her a bath and gave her a massage and just bonded and loved her as we should.

    Today, I have already done cardio (dog walk), and am off to the park with Kami and Katie in a few. I will train biceps during Kami's afternoon nap.

    Today was my off day from the gym and I spent it with Kami. I woke up at 3:30am and worked, walked my dogs for 90 minutes, then we all had a big family day and I even took Kami to the park first thing and ended it with baby bath and massage time at 7pm. I missed a meal today, but it was worth it. I was busy playing with Kami. Shucks, tough choice.

    Life's good.

    Physique-wise, I am leaner and more vascular than the day of my competition! Weigh-in day will be Wednesday.
