  • VOTE life/eyes from the other side of partner prep

    When I've prepped under Skippy for the last 5 shows I kept a journal of my emotions/mood swings etc & I find it totally hilarious to read back.

    My boyfriend is due to start prep with Skippy tomorrow & I wanted a vote to see if you guys would find it interesting/entertaining to see what it's like not for the prep person but the partner of that person?

    This will be a no holds barred honest journal of my view point.

    The decision is yours guys

    Absolutely, especially from a woman's point of view.

      If you are willing to share, I am definitely interested in reading. From my perspective, as a young guy, I think it would be pretty enlightening to see how a competitors prep can affect those around them from a woman's standpoint.

        My wife tells me her perspective when I am dieting... Would like to hear it from a competitors perspective who is not prepping.

          I know for me, journaling was a godsend. Just allowed me to get out all the thoughts and read them out loud. Any competitor will know...once you start getting down to those final weeks...your brain starts getting quirky and you think a LOT about stuff. I got very introspective about myself in my journal over the last prep, even to the point of embarrassing myself as I look back on it. I read some old entries and just htink to myself "Damn, I come off as some idiot ranting about mindset and focus and shit"..but you know what?

          I don't regret it at all. No one who I am really close with in "real" life competes, so no one gives a shit what I have to say about what I am going through while prepping...they can't relate. I can't blame them. I used my journal to basically just examine WHY I was competing anyway. For me it's about the personal struggle of it all, and what could be more personal than a journal that you update daily or regularly, with all your REAL thoughts and emotions of the time?

          So journaling gave me an outlet, and some constructive criticism, encouragement, etc.

          That, and it never hurts to be able to look back when you get at a stalling point and find out what the problem is and how to fix it.

          I say do it!

            I feel it will be very entertaining as when you are prepping you don't see what you are like....it's only after the event when people remind you. I have cringed at the way I was, I have only seen it from a partners point of view whilst I was prepping at the same time, and I will only be able to say thoughts from my perspective & give the crazy goings on that will happen without a shadow of a doubt as the prep gets nearer.

            So it doesn't become boring I feel that if I up-date it at a week to week basis rather than daily. Also being in the lions den as the D-date approaches may be very dangerous for me :hysterica

            When my partner finishes his prep mine will begin, we have timed it correctly this year as last year we prepped at the same time :hand:
            Thanx guys for your in put

              Sounds interesting.. I'd read it.

              Now the question is... will he be doing the same? Would you support that?

              I'm not sure I'd want someone putting all my roller coaster emotions out there for me from their perspective... but it WOULD be interesting I'm sure. I know I certianly wouldn't read it until AFTER prep.

              and i sure as hell wouldn't want SKIP to read it... i'm sure I cursed his ass on a few times to her that I just needed to vent but knew he was right.

              Skip thought it was funny when my wife asked me ...
              "hey you wanna get it on"? after a refeed meal..
              i said 'sure' all smiles of course.....
              she said... "then you did'nt eat like he told you to Pussy... go and eat more."

              yeah i laugh now...but that day i wasn't...oh no.. that day i was not

                If he did the same for me yes I'd support that, as reading back my account of what I was like during my 5 preps to what other peoples views of what I was actually like was completely different lol.
                I've mentioned that he really shouldn't read it until after prep, I know it's going to be the last 6-8 weeks where the fun will begin.

                :hysterica we both curse Skip to him he knows exactly what we are thinking/feeling HELL Skip tells ME before I say stuff hence the name Mr Crystal Balls

                I bet you thank your wife now though, you gotta have a helluva strong back bone to be someone's partner through prep, if you can survive that you can survive anything!

                  Well guys, as been as i am a pure delight to be with during prep, and a total godsend to be around, you can rest assured that i will NOT be reading it as i will find it boring reading entry after entry from Linny of how great i am, how delightful i am to be around and how relaxed, laidback and smiley i am all the time. I already know this. Lol (hmmmmm)

                  So no, i can quite happily say it would not cross my mind to read it until after the prep is over, it is a promise i have made to linny...this is her way of releasing whatever frustrations or shoutyness she has built up from my hanging the phone up on her, not speaking to her (i never shout, i just get one heluva moody silent mo fo!) or anything else i may do mid prep to piss her off. I would much rather her write on here than take out that baseball bat i know she has hidden by the coat stand. hahaha....this is my protection...i bruise like a peach!
