    There's no shame in making the best decision possible. Quite the contrary. And on top of it now you have more time to take it slow and steady and not rush. Your dedication to family as well as training is truly a gift

    Yeah will be nice to bulk, last time I "bulked" was when I sprained my shoulder and couldn't do much so I got chubby and unmotivated, none of that going on this time. Heck I have been leaning up since the Holiday Season from last year...

    All of you rock, it is a bitch having to back out of something important to you, but it is pretty awesome to have all the support from you guys! Definitely an awesome group of friends I have on here. Yeah bulking now will be nice, although admittedly I can not really afford to add any fat now. Hell just recomping with a bit of dietary forgiveness will be pretty awesome after being at it for the last 6 months straight.

    There's absolutely no shame in prioritizing family first Chris. It's the foundation of a good family man. And it's not like you've given up on the idea you've simply given yourself more time to grow and prep, I can only imagine the condition you'll be in in march!

    Yah tell me about it. You have been dieting for a long time. I am doing a second show for the first time which means tons of time lean so I can really understand that recomp would be somewhat of a relief I will be looking here for some ideas on how to ease back into more normal eating to try and avoid that eating frenzy I always go into after a show.

    I am suffering a bit of depression, I came to the conclusion after some long hard thought on the subject and a few things just kind of pointing out to me how tight money has become all of the sudden that I am just not going to be able to do a show at all this year. The entire weekend was a bust for me physically and mentally... I spent most of the weekend on the couch sleeping. Just kind of lost in having to make this decision. My diet was okay but not where it needed to be and I did not even lift this weekend. So there is really not too much to show as far as progress... I am still huge from last weekend, all of the water has not come off probably because in my stupor of depression I did not drink nearly enough water or anything else for that matter. I am weighing in around 212, and looking pretty good have a tiny bit of water to get rid of...

    I will definitely take some pictures this week end get them up.

    Okay so on to the new plan which is what I need to get going to get myself out of this funk!

    I have 2 more weeks of the DMZ to run, since shredding is not the immediate goal now I plan to finish it out by giving it some calories to do it's thing! I won't be going crazy or anything just tossing it about 500 calories a day for the next 2 weeks. If I am right with how depleted I have been running that will have me around 215-218 with abs when I am done. Maybe even a little larger!!! Either way I figure if I am mid cycle right now I might as well get the most out of it by trying to add some muscle while the anabolics are high in my system. I figure the best way to do it is about 500 more cals putting me at what should be my maintenance of perhaps a tiny bit higher, which should result in some good mass being added while continuing to lean out but at a slower pace.

    Afterwards I will be bridging/cruising with some 1-Alpha & Ostarine while allowing my liver values to come back down enough I can go ahead and get on TRT. That will keep me from losing gains, and even allow me to lower cals back down a little to continue leaning up without losing muscle.

    The end goal is to be about 8% the beginning of the year so I can start my official prep in January already being very lean and close to my goals. So I have to not only keep my eye on the prize but can not allow myself to get lazy at all. I also plan to pay my entrance fees in advance so that nothing can pop up and mess with my plans like what happened here. The contest is here in Houston, it is the Phil Heath Classic on March 15th. I have my sights on this sucker and plan to show up in CRAZY condition somewhere in the middle of the Light Heavy Weights.
    I love you babe, and I am sorry.. :-(::::: I know you wanted to do this sooooo bad, and we WILL make it happen!! It breaks my heart for you that you have had to put a hold on it. Please keep your head up, because you are still the hottest, sexiest man ever!! I know that's still not healing your heart right now. But I love you, keep pushing it as hard as you can so you can come in strong in the March show and win the muscleist man alive. MUAH!

    I don't know the separation really shows how much mass you have on them, it isn't like there is a big flat open space of sternum drawing away from them.

    Thanks Hokie and I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment. Honestly everyone being supportive about it is making it easier to deal with. Now moving forward is looking more and more fun and that is what it is about...

    I am trying to figure out what workout to do for now. I am thinking I am going to slip into my KLEEN Machine / Warrior Workout for some full body madness then add in an extra day for shoulders and arms. That is the plan for right now at least.

    Well not gonna lie I am relaxing a tiny bit this week. Not much but enough. For some reason I got sick last night, was up all night with my stomach wreaking havoc on me. However tonight I am treating myself to a hamburger with the wife it has been so long. That and some fat always helps with the stomach issues for me anyway.

    Yeah I am pretty pumped before it was all about not veering from the current one but once I actually let go it is easier to get excited about what I am going to be doing.

    Yah it's stands to reason you would be relaxing some given your situation. I can feel your heartache almost. I mean all the dieting then you find out you can't finish. I would be relaxing beyond a doubt. You have a great family and that's the important thing. What you can't do in prep time you can put that energy into family time and enjoy life a little bit. That sounds pretty good actually Hey your lady really understands you, there in lies your support. I am sure you know this and aren't shy about leaning on her for a bit. She is more than happy to take the weight. That's what a good marriage is all about. It's our ladies that keep us strong.

    Agree with this ^^^. Family is most important. Kleen, brother you will kill this contest next year. You should be proud of your accomplishments so far. I know I'm proud of you. This little setback is giving you time to improve even more.

    Oh no, he is not going to relax too much, I will not have it. I don't want him stressing out over his diet when it comes down to the time of comp, but keeping him semi clean is what i have in mind for him. When it is time for comp, I want him rolling in there with full confidence that he did it, looks amazing and is strutting his stuff like he is the *hit he really is. His dieting has an affect on everyone in my house, it doesn't go with just him. If he relaxes then so I dont get to wear my awesome skinny clothes, and we just just can't go back to the women's sizes.. Not to mention our lil girl is a product of our jeans, she doesn't have the benefit to relax on a diet, and if she sees daddy and mommy relaxing too much, then it would not be fare to her, and that's not cool to do to her.

    Yes and honestly the fat seemed to help out quite a bit last night. About 20-30 minutes after eating my stomach felt coated and relaxed even more.

    Thanks Kenpo! Much appreciated.

    All things considered I think I am going to use this week as a bit of a deload. I chose to sleep in and recover a bit more this morning and honestly I feel much better rested for doing so. I have been crushing my body without pause for over 6 months now. I plan to go to the gym tomorrow for a full body but I may simply do something very light. I may just take the rest of the week off and start brand new on Saturday. Right now recovery is the main course of action. I have already noticed my shoulders are less achy just from the downtime.

    Interestingly enough, the "dirty food" from yesterday was enough to have the veins on the inside of my biceps and under my triceps noticeably visible without doing anything but raising my arm up this morning. Even though this weekend was a bust for me physically I have to admit I am surprised I still look as good as I do right now. Yeah there is a little slippage IE, I am not as dry but mentally I felt I slipped horribly but the mirror this morning said... "Be cool Man, things are still doing fine here!"

    I talked with Coach Matt and he is still going to work with me which is awesome. He wants to go back to trying to correct my slow metabolism over the next few months. So there will be a lot more calories being thrown at my body. Right now the current plan is 300g Protein, 175g Carbs, and 65-75g Fats, which is a relatively big jump in cals, and we will go up from there. I will plan on cardio 3 times a week all through this and add in some HIIT here and there because I like doing it and it is good for raising the metabolism. He would like for me to be at around 4000 cals a day before we start cutting cals again. I am not sure how feasible it is but if he can swing it I will be impressed. He did have me leaning out at 2650 which was basically what I was eating to get myself out of shape in the first place. Biggest key here is I want to do this without gaining much if any fat and preferably actually have myself a tiny bit leaner by the time I start the actual prep portion of this log again.

    This looks like a very solid plan. I have a very slow metabolism myself so just might try to adopt this if you are cool with it.

    Amen Sista! Gonna be walking a thin line with trying to increase calories and metabolism while not adding fat. However it is good I can relax and have a free meal here and there. Trinity was so excited to hear that I could have a free meal with her again. She told me it was not as fun for her to have one while I was not eating or eating diet food. LOL

    Did you know you can just delete the post completely? I keep seeing people type double post, or little comments but if you check the delete message and then select the Delete Message radio button it will delete the entire post. I guess having to do the second one is a fail-safe to make sure you REALLY wanna delete it.

    Absolutely! I don't reveal everything in here or at least not all in one place, wouldn't be cool to MattyS4 or the other Coaches @ BOSS BODY. However if you pay enough attention you will see exactly what I am doing and get an idea. Of course keep in mind how he sets mine up won't be the same way for everyone, and lots of other factors are taken into consideration like muscle mass, activity levels, time for extra activities, things like that. Plus my changes will be based off of my bodies reaction to the changes that he will monitor via pictures so it will be tailored directly to me.

    Yeah no problem at all. Also for the record, I don't think having a slower metabolism in this game is a bad thing. Especially if it is just a lifestyle and not competition based. Yeah it is easier to gain fat if you slip which sucks, but you can gain muscle on almost half the calories, which means lower grocery bills for the same amount of muscle. Sure we have to be more careful about how much we eat but at least we don't have to force feed ourselves to the point we feel ill. That being said, the reason for trying to increase my metabolism is so I can eat more during prep which will make the actual prep a bit easier. If I only have to go down to 2200-2500 to do the show I should be less miserable than if I have to go down to 1800-2000 or that is his thought process.

    Its not an option on my phone app though. Unless I'm just missing it somewhere. I had called the Queen's double post a measure of emphasis but as soon as I posted it, it was gone. Totally stole my thunder lol.

    I suppose you are right. And no this for me is just a lifestyle. Obviously after at one point losing 175lbs, I could never step on a stage (due to skin etc.) unless of course i had surgery. Just want to be the best I can be, for me, and to really prove to my kids that anything you set your mind to is possible. And that a healthy lifestyle is certainly a good one.
