Someone Turns 64 and Machete....A must see movie :)

 Happy Birthday!!!!!!I'm amazed not much talk was said today about Arnolds "the Terminators" birthday. He has really made bodybuilding what it is today. I will also never forget my moment celebrating his birthday in LA a few years back with a few IFBB Pros. It was one of the coolest things ever.
Cheers to You Arnold and Best Wishes on your birthday. I would smoke a Pardon cigar for you but I don't have one near by. Pardons are very top quality cigars and I would recommend trying the anniversary one as it is very nice..
Arnold and Joe Weider


One of my most favorite pictures of Arnold....all eyes on me

The must movie to watch..........
It was late at night and I decided to watch the movie "Machete". It is so funny and we can't forget the blood splattering action. It stars people like Danny Trejo, Don Johnson, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohen, Cheech, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and a few other celebrities. I never laughed so hard, but there are parts that are gross.

HI!!!!

Happy weekend everyone. I did yoga this morning and an ab workout. It was good. I took Bunny to Deming park and we played and walked a bit as it wasn't too hot for her. I'm feeling in the mood to train in a little bit.

here's a funny one for you. Hercules (the Bengal) growled at his toys the other day. I never heard him do that before and it was LOUD. He was attacking a tennis ball as he was protecting his toy bird he had in his mouth. Silly cat. Hes eating Bunny's treats and dog food and its driving me nuts.

I will touch in later

Woke up from a nap....

and look who was near me.....What a mommas boy

One Penny...Two Penny ...Three Penny..........

and I am starting out my morning fresh and rejuvenated. I justoi got done taking a yoga class and it was incedible. I feel a load off my shoulders Yesterday I trained my least favorite body part..legs. It's been a long time since I really trained legs a little intense. Now yesterdays workout can't hang with my past leg training as thise training moments were insane. But I did have a blast here yesterday. I used to normally do leg press going up to 15-16 plates of 45 on each side. Yesterday I did 26 plates total. I was proud but was hurting after the workout. I really am picking up the pace and last night I was going to take a ab shot and body shot for you guys but I'm gonna wait.

The Indiana State and Hoosier Muscle was a good show and we had some pretty close calls in some of the mens classes. We also had 2 engagements take place too. One of them I won't mention his name started doing his posing routine and then walked off the stage onto the audience and I thought he was gonna do something crazy (we have had that a few times). Well the guy asked his girl to marry him and then he came back on and trophies were awarded for that class. This guy was in two divisons and he didnt win the first one and when the 2nd round came for him.......guess what, he was no where to be found or as we like to say missing in action. My guess is he got upset with his placing and decided to be party pooper about it. I can't stand attitudes like that. Oh well.... It happens at some of these contest. I don't get it.

Moving on....the 2nd porposal was soo cute and his name is Joey and he won the entire show. He looked awesome and he is doing USAs this weekend. I really think he is going to bring "shock and awe" to Vegas. Anyway, he is a really cool guy. Congrats to Joey and his finace as they make a magical pair. Love is a powerful thing especially when you get that special kind of love that bonds you. Congrats again on the engagement my friend

It was our last show and I had a blast. I met so many wonderful people and competitors. Not to mention a few Facebook friends. I did go to St. Elmos Steakhouse the Friday before, which was awesome except that fact my steak was medium when I wanted medium rare lol. I didn't care as the steak was so good. I would go again and again. I will be helping the Red Cross with National Night out at Fairbanks park. Its going to be busy especially with this heat. Last year was pretty cool. I hope some of you can come out. Next month will be nice as st lucia st kitts barbados st martin and st thomas as calling my name. Now later.in the year i will be paying my Carnival friend a few visits out of Miami. You know I love food:) and getting a dark tan not to mention the ocean and most importantly seeing my funny friend. I just did abs so its meal time later its biceps and shoulders....booooooo Gooooooo Colts. ....Im so excited we have FOOTBALL again

Sore and loving it

Give me a moment......I need to.....stop laughing....
There's a guy over here in Starbucks blowing his nose and each time he does it sounds like a trumpet lol. He can be on Americas Got Talent. Gosh that was funny as a couple of people jumped and then some were giggling like me. Now if I can only tell this lady across the room to turn down the volume as I'm sure a lot of us don't really want to hear her phone conversation about her bowel movements lol..

From my grueling workout the last few days except yesterday as it was a "I'm very sore and I can't move" holiday for yours truly. I worked myself till the fat lady sang and yesterday I felt the after affects. I'm still feeling the pain but I will be venturing my happy sore, can barely walk, sit and move my arms to the gym today. Despite the soreness, I also have had a very bad sore throat for the last 2 weeks. I'm a mute as it hurts sometimes to talk. I'm sure a lot of you are happy about the fact I can't open my mouth and say a few words lol ....like......well never mind. No worries tough as I am still keeping my bubbly self going and smiling. I could be on my death bed and I will still be a happy go lucky self.

Guess who is going to volunteer a few times at the Colts training camp :).....well I'm in if we even have a training camp that is due to all this lockout hoopla.

Looking very forward to NPC Indiana's biggest show , the NPC Indiana State and the HOOOOSIER Classic. Lots of competitors which means a heavy workload for the judges. Sadly this is the last Indiana show  for the rest of the year. *sigh* We will have a blast and make the best of it.

I might as well throw this out there while I'm sitting here bloggin. I plan to attend a few National shows which you can count me in for Nationals. Not to mention I will be attending a couple Pro shows like the Master Olympia Dec 10 in Miami. I can't miss that one. $100,000 is on the line. The Masters Olympia was started in the early 90s and was discontinued after 2003. I'm hearing all types of big names being thrown into this competition. I admit yes I am a geek and yes I do have a shirt that says "geek" lol. I like my Star Wars, Transformers, Mac products, technology, and all that other hoopla. But when it comes to bodybuilding I love to collect old memorabilia or old magazines. Its amazing how much bodybuilding has evolved. If I had an era to choose where I could live the "bodybuilder" dream it would be in the late 70s to early 90s. Huge difference between then and now. Lots of massive Titans, that are just unreal. There is nothing like a beautiful flowing symmetrical body. Just gorgeous to look at from head to toe. I remember going on eBay and looking up Olympia and believe or not someone actually was selling a Sandow from the Mr. Olympia. I couldn't believe it and silly me I missed the opportunity. I wont see that again.

As for myself. I am currently prepping Arnold Classic but as we all know you have to be invited to it. It doesn't hurt to try. I do have one person behind me that is goign to be a good guide in my corner. They are more an an artist and can do wonders with a physique.  I have changed my normal routine with off season dieting and decided to go back to organics and whole foods. The change has made a big difference as right now I am currently 169lbs and of course as I said before usually I am in the 185+ range.  You can see that in past blogs lol. I mean business and take training and dieting seriously. I really enjoy the competitive edge especially in bodybuilding. I love competition pretty much in anything LOL...I've had that drive since I was a young. If your a close friend you know what I am talking about.
No worries I will keep you posted and you can always check out the Facebook too
Well I need to sort a few things out at school ttyl

Nothing like the 80s

Theres just something about classic 80s music that sparks me. Theres so much soul and passion to the music. Many have forgotten just how good it used to be. Todays music is good but lacks the feeling and passion. When I listen to 80s music it brings back some fond memories of denim jackets, fishnet gloves and rocker hairstyles, not to mention some feelings as songs back then really expressed love :) among other things. Im listening to Bon Jovi "livin  on a prayer" and then its "the Fixx" and then maybe some Tears for Fears

A Sad Day In Terre Haute...God Bless our Fallen Hero Officer Brent Long

 

From Officer Down Memorial page. http://www.odmp.org/
"When a police officer is killed, it's not an agency that loses an officer, it's an entire nation." -Chris Cosgriff, ODMP Founder
Police Officer Brent Long was shot and killed as he and other officers served a felony warrant at a house.

A task force comprised of officers from the United States Marshals Service, Indiana State Police and Terre Haute Police Department, including Officer Long, knocked on the back door of the house on North 8th Street to serve a felony warrant. Several people exited the house, but not the wanted suspect. As the officers made entry into the home the suspect opened fire on them, striking Officer Long and his canine, Shadow. The suspect was shot and killed by return fire.

Officer Long was transported to Union Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. Shadow was taken to a veterinary clinic and is expected to recover.
Officer Long had served with the Terre Haute Police Department for six years. He is survived by his wife, 11-year-old daughter, and 10-year-old son.
**This is such a sad time for Terre Haute and across the nation. God bless our Fallen Hero Brent Long. Thank you for your Service. Sending thoughts and prayers to Brents family, the entire Terre Haute Police Department, and healing prayers to Shadow.**

Fun Times with a Airplane Experience I will never forget

Me and mommy. She wanted me to tell you all thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Of course we butt heads...shes mom and you know how that goes. I helped her put her garden together and then we had a girls night out at the house. Then of course me and sissy being our silly selves. She will be with me in a few weeks. Can't wait

On another note for the last 2 days I got to ride a Triumph Rocket 3 which is pretty darn cool for a motorcycle. I had a blast and got a tan too lol. Then Heres something cool. I had a thing for airplanes and simply think they are awesome. I actually plan on taking flying lessons either in Terre Haute or in Orlando. I just love planes. A good friend of mine who is awesome took me to Orlando International Airport to get up close and personal with a few big powerful birds courtesy, of Continental and United. I got to see several planes and do some pretty cool things. I also got  to see a 737 800 gutted. That was cool seeing what a plane looks like taken apart. I learned alot not to mention I got to sit in the Captains seat.

Can you see me on the wing lol

Hoping for a Atlantis Launch

Im here with the family getting bit by tons of mosquitoes. LOL. Its breezy, and cloudy. I am hearing lots of mixed reviews about the launch. I hope its a go but we will see. It really doesnt look too good. We left ver early this morning, and lucky thing we did as it was insane.

A BIG THANK YOU

Wanted to tell everyone thank you for your support, prayers, thoughts, and encouraging words with my mothers health. It really meant a lot to me and my mother as I put together all the responses and she was greatly touched by them. She is so so right now. I've been trying to do things to lift her spirits up and not think about anything. Ez Rent a car, who always takes care of me put me into a black Dodge Challenger with under 400 miles lol. I thought that was very very nice of them. Thank you for the hook up and mom is really digging it and grandma had to drive it....lol. It makes me happy that I can be here for my mother and do whatever i can to make her happy. It makes me very happy to see her smile and not think or stress about her situation. I won't lie she is a hand full lol....TRUST ME.. hahaha
Of course I had to stop by Vitamin Shoppe and pick up some protein for the big adventure coming up


Well we Mom myself and my sister all took a power nap earlier and now we are packing up the cooler and going to drive out to the cape for the last Shuttle Launch. There is a very good chance it won't launch today but I am willing to take that risk and to be with my mother and sister means a lot to me Especially my mom being by my side. I love her to death.

On another note I look forward to a few moments of the day where I get bubbly and giggly as I get nice little spontaeous hi/hellos here and there from a good friend. It really brightened my day yesterday as its always spontaneous and unexpected. I never know when its gonna happen but when it does ....**SMILE** Makes me all happy lol. and tingly....J/k. its to now I am thought of. :) *hugs*

Before I go I wanted to post a couple pictures from the Exotic Feline rescue center located in Brazil, IN very cool place and my friend took me here and I was truly touch by seeing the felines and the stories behind how each one got there really breaks your heart.
