Because I am aware of it, I am not as fargone as I think I am..

My friend and I figured that one out talking about getting older and feeling like I am going crazy. It's like the earth is spinning a little faster. However, that is only a factor when the media is turned on in one's space. Again, like I have said before. The TV NEEDS to be turned off once in a while for a whole day. OR TWO..............

I am wondering, (IF, anyone really does read this thing) what you girls think about the one piece elimination. The figure thing is so out of control, and with NPC talking about that bikini category, how crazy is this going to get? So you will have figure AND bikini. So I see the bikini just being two piece. Not totally sure what the whole concept was about with the one and two piece.

I do remember when fitness FIRST came around, they had a fitness routine, two piece, then an evening gown round. I think that Miss Fitness organization still does that. I think that the one piece suit replaced that idea with NPC/IFBB. All of that being said I am curious of reactions to that news.

Back to the statement at the beginning. My poor mind is so goggled that I just go blank every time I get on my blog page. Mostly because I just can't imagine anyone giving a shit about what I have to say anyway, just a fact, not whinning. ........Sooooooooooooooooooooooo......let me go over here to my book shelf....hmmm.....still haven't found my old poetry book. When do find it I will flood you silly with my sweet poems I used to write out in the Hamptons.

Okay, this is great. My bible of bodybuilding is Bill Pearl's, "Keys to the Inner Universe". If you don't have this book, and truly love the art of bodybuilding and pumping iron, you really need to get it. www.billpearl.com . Get the hard cover book, it's totally worth it. So this is the first part of his "Conduct becoming a CHAMPION" chapter. I love this..........

"It is human nature to want to be successful. Lasting success does not come easily and a price must be paid to obtain it. Success in bodybuilding could come in a short span of time, but, lasting recognition takes several years of planning and hard work.

If you want to be a champion, or associate with champions, you must act like a champion. This is far from easy. People are continually trying you and making decisions in their minds as to the kind of person you are. The only things they can judge on are your appearance and actions. If these are bad, their evaluation of you is bad. Large muscles alone will not bring you lasting success or respectability. You must always be aware of your image and the kind of attention you acquire. In many respects these are more important than an outstanding physique. In time the physique will diminish but it is the overall impact you have made on people that causes them to remember you. It is therefore important that you become aware of your actions. It is your obligation to yourself, the sport, and fellow men to gain the best image possible. This image cannot be obtained by offending people. Remember, people you offend today, young or old, could sit in judgment of you tomorrow. It is important to understand that success will bring attention to you. It is also important to realize success. Therefore you must be concerned that you are receiving attention that can pay dividends. Physical fitness is only a small portion of your total self."..........

Then it goes on to teach how to achieve this. It is absolutely wonderful! My favorite bodybuilding book.........................
