    Officially starting prep today as its 20 weeks out from my show NPC MN State. I started Monday as I was ready to go and tired of being fat . Weighed in at 238 this morning but the wife said she thinks the scale is 5lbs light compared to the Dr Office. So, whatever 238/243lbs ball park. 3pt caliper was at 24. Lower then I thought i was going to be.
    I will be 45 this march and coming off a neck/nerve issue after my last show in 2012. Lost 3 inches off my bicep/delt between my April and June shows. Have that pretty much taken care of and ready to go!
    I train 4 days a week and will be doing cardio 2 days a week for 30 minutes on my non training days. I use Skips dieting protocol as I worked with him for a few years and liked the results. Looking at competing in the Masters and possibly the open heavy class if I feel like I am up to par to compete with the young kids
    Let the games begin!

                30 minutest of LISS cardio 3mph
                72g carbs today, does not effect me at all as far as energy and what not since its early in the prep. Actually does not ever really effect me till the last 4-5 weeks and then its not really a concern other then mood wise I am more irritable... Weird, I know!

                    I do fine on low carbs, does not really phase me honestly. No, only 1 show this year. I only have my sights set on MN State. No desire to do multiple shows a year any longer. Not fair to my family as I tend to get tunnel vision during prep.

                        Picked up a used elliptical for my cardio. Treadmill was what i have always used but i wore it out and my wife prefers the elliptical. Will be interesting to see what kind of difference it will make during this prep.

                          Weight was down to 234 the morning of my "Skipload" last Sunday. Training has been going well, gaining strength as I go. Which is the norm till about 4 weeks out for me. I will be checking body fat this weekend to track progress.
