New York Pro, 4 Leaf Clovers and a Severed Snakes Head

Jut a couple of things I want to talk about :)

New York Pro

I am excited about the show as Nancy Lewis is competing and she has always brought her A game. I got to meet her at the GNC Show of Strength in 2004. I am excited to see her physique and I wish her the best. overall its a great line up and a lot of people from last year are competing at it again this year like Cathy LeFrancois who was last years winner. I wish her the best too. She always comes in condition and is always beautiful in her presentation. I wish all the ladies good luck in the show. I am sure Betty Pariso is going to bring her A game too as she too always comes dialed in.

I may be going to the Tampa Pro show but that is still in the works. I'm not a 100% on that.
I will be there to help out with the show.

I don't know if I have told you yet but I am working with Chad Nicholls for my prep to the Ms. Olympia. Chad knows my physique very well as I have worked with him SEVERAL times in the past. One of those times was the USAs in 2007 when I decided to not compete and they had me down as a figure competitor lol. I think I looked the best conditioning and size wise for that show. I worked my butt off. I will see him in a a few weeks at the Muscle Mayhem Championships as David and I will be judging that show. Its a bout a 6 hr drive for us to Kansas City from Terre Haute.

Yesterday I found a 4 leaf clover. I went to the park yesterday as I like go from time to time and walk the trails. Its a great way to relax and unwind. Well I saw a clover patch and looked down and well I couldn't believe my eyes to what I saw before me. I have always been curious about the 4 leaf clovers. Hopefully it will bring me luck for the Ms. Olympia. My hair stylist has found a few 4 leaf clovers. She inspired me. Which reminds me that I need to schedule a appointment to see her to add some highlights to my hair. :) It always nice to pamper yourself every now and then.

Well as far as the training goes it is going great. I only train one body part a day. I love training in the early morning like 4 am or so. Its a great way for me to get the day started. For this off season I train a little later in the morning as I want to get some extra sleep. Today I trained back, and It was a short workout as I really worked myself too hard to the point I got very dizzy.
Okay I need to go and cook some vegetables. Oh I just remembered. I got totally grossed out today when I read a story on Yahoo about a incident at TGI Fridays were a man found finding a severed snakes head in his vegetables he got served.

Here is the story..

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — A diner at an upstate New York restaurant got a little something extra with his broccoli — a severed snake head.
Jack Pendleton was at T.G.I. Friday's in Clifton Park on Sunday when he spotted something gray mixed in with his vegetables and realized it was a snake head the size of his thumb, with part of the spine still attached.
Pendleton says he snapped a photo with his cell phone camera and called the waiter over. The manager said he'd never seen anything like it.
A spokeswoman for the Carrolton, Texas, chain says it's investigating. The broccoli was pulled from the restaurant and others served by the same supplier. It wasn't immediately known what type of snake was involved.
Pendleton and his girlfriend weren't charged for their meals. He says he has no plans to sue.
"The manager came over white as a sheet," Pendleton, 28, told "He explained in five years he'd never run into anything like this."

Wow this turned my stomach immediately. I like how the media puts in there "they didn't get charged for their meals", I sure hope they didn't. If this happened to me I would never look at vegetables the same again. Its a big part of me especially being a bodybuilder as vegetables are a big part of my diet. I just get the goosebumps thinking about it. I hope they catch the person responsible for that disgusting prank. I don't think I will eat at TGI Fridays again. :)
