#SassySaturday 👸🏽
Enjoying looking back at pics from last year's Tampa Pro! 💪🏽💓
.
Spending my Saturday afternoon at Gary Udit's Perfect Posing seminar in Virginia Beach. It's always awesome being around people who are about that life 😏 This morning was so informative and positive, and I think all the local competitors are pumped about the shows coming up this month!  @garyudit  #PerfectPosing .

Thank you @vbodyz for getting everybody involved in today's seminar!  I think it's going to be extremely beneficial to all of us, and it's also made me super excited to get back onstage again soon!!

After going into a funk over my #kentuckymuscle performance I’m ready to get 2018 rolling! Going to be putting this look to shame. My back will be bigger and more conditioned. Can’t wait to connect with some of the greats and get a handle on this horrible posing/ stage presence which is my #1 priority. If you can’t pose as an ifbb pro NO REASON TO SHOW UP!!! So until then it’s all about posing. Currently sitting at a comfortable 220lbs. #ifbb #tbt #npc #mensphysique #classicphysique #bodybuilding #teamventura #perfectposing #deadcenter #biggerbetter #conditioning #gottagetbetter #believeinyourself #anythingispossible #icandoallthingsthroughchrist #cleveland #mygamehisglory

And just like that, the night was over ❤️ A year and 8 months of hard work, dedication, self-discipline, sacrifice, sweat, blood, and tears. A year and 8 months of early mornings doing fasted cardio, late night weightlifting sessions, daily soreness and joint pains, constant no’s when offered food I couldn’t eat, and at times having to isolate myself because it would be too much. A year and 8 months all coming down to one of the most amazing days of my life! To my friends and family who came out to support, thank you so much for being there!!! To those who’ve been there through it all, thank y’all for pushing me and loving me every step of the way! ❤️

Full results are in!
-
First show =  9th Place out of 23 amazing competitors.
-
Was an honor and privilege to compete, something I’ll never forget.
-
Happy I broke into the Top 10, but 9th Place = work to do 💪💪💪.
-
There’s a moment I didn’t get and I owe it to someone very special.
-
I will get it for them.
-
There are no excuses.

Thank you so much to @stanthemanmcquay and @mrcshadows for everything so far and for everything to come 🙏.

Sometimes I like to post pictures that give people a view through my eyes.
-
They’re always different views because how I see is always different.

Sometimes this is my world.

Out of focus and blurry.

Back at it 🙌 Felt good to take a rest, but feels even better to be home 🤗.
-
Also, all the mirrors at 24 are disgusting 🤨.
-
Checkout the new @c2c_savages joggers AND “Welcome to the Savage Side” T’s, both of which are super comfortable 🙌 Slowly collecting all their joggers 😎.

So, I’ve been waiting to post this for a few days now because of what happened right before I hit the stage.
-
I was so nervous and equally excited to hit the stage, but to get to it I had to walk down a narrow hallway with my competition lined up on each side in rows of eleven.
-
I was last, so I made my way to the back and as I got there a competitor saw me and said:
-
“Oh cool fucking guys get to wear sunglasses?  I didn’t know cool fucking guys got to do whatever. Guess I’m just not cool bro. Such a cool guy right? Cool guy with cool sunglasses.”
-
Brushed it off with my typical, “Gotta get approval from the judges bro” (which I did) and “Ya man guess it’s something like that.”
-
He kept yapping until his line went up and I was left waiting to go up.
-
I was furious. Beyond raging.
-
I contemplated just going out there and hitting him in the face.
-
But I didn’t.
-
Instead, I hit the stage mad as all hell and forgot I was even being judged because of how deep in my own head I was.
-
Saw the judges and snapped back into reality.
-
I had spent too much time working towards this moment.
-
It’s situations like this and my disability  that make me behave a certain way.
-
Like a peasant.
-
Peasants stay quiet.
-
Peasants eat scraps.
-
Peasants look at the floor.
-
Well, I’m tired of looking at my feet.
-
I hope to see that kid again.
-
Head to head on stage.
-
So I can eat his heart.
-
There are no excuses.

Then and now 💁🏻‍♂️.
-
Too small for a medium T-shirt to first #mensphysique show 🤨.
-
Baby Sammie to 6 years old 😍.
-
Sammie told me after my show, after she saw me on stage and after she saw the sparkly shiny suits bikini girls get to wear, “Daddy I wanna do what you did when I’m older.”.
-
Pretty cool 😏.
-
Also, not sure what @missjessica27 was thinking back then 🤣 and when she saw this she told me neither is she 😳😂.

Wanted to take a second and shoutout my coach @stanthemanmcquay.
-
For the most part, I always feel like the runt of the litter.
-
It’s hard for me to see any kind of progress in my body from training or dieting, so I was very hesitant to even approach Stan about training me because of who he was and all he had accomplished.
-
He laid everything out I had to do to step on stage and I never questioned him once.
-
Eat this. Done.
-
Train this way. Done.
-
Work on this. Done.
-
If it wasn’t for Stan I don’t believe I would’ve come as far as I have.
-
His guidance and support was more than I could’ve ever expected or hoped for from a coach.
-
Thank you brotha, for everything.
-
Now, let’s improve on some things and get ready for Round 2 💪😎.

I’ve been talking a lot lately about hunting for moments.
-
You might think stepping on stage was the moment, and while it was one of the best experiences of my entire life, it wasn’t the one I was hunting for.
-
No, the one I was hunting for this time around was this picture.
-
This moment.
-
I thought about it in every set.
-
In every cardio session
-
In every bite of meal prep.
-
I thought about it when I had to get home to get to bed early instead of going out.
-
When I missed stuff and had to enjoy them through other people’s pictures.
-
And guess what?
-
Worth.
-
Every.
-
Second.
-
For this one moment.
-
There are no excuses.

After everything, four years of picking up the pieces and finding my way, I’m grateful for the struggles.
-
I needed them.
-
Because they taught me so much.
-
Now, instead of letting self-pity cripple me, I’m hunting for moments.
-
They’re seconds in time that those around me may never even notice.
-
They’re not the big moments, they’re the smaller ones hidden along the way.
-
Though some may not see them, they’re all I want.
-
Because when the darkness comes.
-
They mean the most.
-
They’re what keep me strong.

Part II of III.
-
After a few days in the dorms at the Junior Blind of America, I found their gym.
-
It was a small room tucked away in the gymnasium with all white brick walls and dim fluorescent lighting.
-
There was a set of silver dumbbells that went from 5-15lbs.
-
There was a 15lbs straight bar with probably 150lbs of various donated weight plates, few of which matched.
-
Some cardio equipment.
-
And that was it.
-
At the time, I was so frustrated and upset with my situation.
-
I had been “training” prior to my issues, but not really.
-
However, I took that anger and frustration and let it all out alone in that gym every night.
-
I did literally hundreds of pushups, in every variation I could find online, until I would physically collapse, then I would do more.
-
Any and all exercises I could do with what I had available to me I would do far far past failure.
-
I wasn’t trying to get jacked or shredded, this wasn’t the goal
-
I was trying to force my vision to leave me and it always would at a certain point.
-
Why?
-
Because I wanted to know what I was made of without it.
-
It was already leaving me right?
-
I was going to be without it whether I liked it or not.
-
So, I made it leave and I kept going without it.
-
And it wasn’t pretty.
-
Often times I’d drop weights on myself, run into things, trip over things, and all the other things you would expect would happen to a blind person alone in a gym.
-
There would be grunting and crying and yelling.
-
Hopefully no one saw, but if they didn’t announce themselves I guess I wouldn’t have even known if they were there.
-
Despite all of this, in those months, days, and hours, I not only found my love and passion for training, but I found something else even more valuable alone in that small gym.
-
I found out that I could survive.
-
I could endure.
-
I could overcome.
-
Vision or no vision.
-
There are no excuses.

Prt I of III.
-
“This is so people know what you are”, will forever be embedded in my mind.
-
After losing my site.
-
After losing my job.
-
After all the tests came back with no answers.
-
I had to live in a dorm for four months at a school for people learning to cope and live with diminished to no vision.
-
And the first day I was asked by a counselor where my cane was.
-
To which I replied, huh?
-
Because I had never needed one and quite frankly had always done whatever I could to avoid one.
-
So, she took one out of her desk, put it in my hand, and said “This is so people know what you are.”
-
I stared at that cane in my hand for what seemed like a lifetime.
-
And in that moment I lost who I was.
-
All the accomplishments.
-
All the efforts.
-
All the confidence.
-
That cane sits in my gym bag.
-
I always know it’s there.
-
I think about it.
-
I feel it.
-
Though I’ve never physically used it, not once, I use it everyday.
-
Not just the cane, but those words.
-
“This is so people know what you are.”
-
In every set.
-
In every rep.
-
In every struggle.
-
In every step away from what I was in her eyes.
-
And in every step towards regaining the parts of myself that I lost.
-
There are no excuses.

Prt I of III. - “This is so people know what you are”, will forever be embedded in my mind. - After losing my site. - After losing my job. - After all the tests came back with no answers. - I had to live in a dorm for four months at a school for people learning to cope and live with diminished to no vision. - And the first day I was asked by a counselor where my cane was. - To which I replied, huh? - Because I had never needed one and quite frankly had always done whatever I could to avoid one. - So, she took one out of her desk, put it in my hand, and said “This is so people know what you are.” - I stared at that cane in my hand for what seemed like a lifetime. - And in that moment I lost who I was. - All the accomplishments. - All the efforts. - All the confidence. - That cane sits in my gym bag. - I always know it’s there. - I think about it. - I feel it. - Though I’ve never physically used it, not once, I use it everyday. - Not just the cane, but those words. - “This is so people know what you are.” - In every set. - In every rep. - In every struggle. - In every step away from what I was in her eyes. - And in every step towards regaining the parts of myself that I lost. - There are no excuses. - @nutrishopnorthridge @physiqueinc @perfectposing @fitlicious_mealprep @musclecontest. - Vid Cred: @eg._photography_. - #signsofforwardprogress

I find solace in the darkness.
-
At first, when my sight would disappear, the air in my lunges would go with it.
-
The panic and anxiety would takeover.
-
With the darkness would come even darker thoughts.
-
What if I.....
-
How will I...
-
I can’t....
-
But in these moments, moments that come without warning, I learned to replace fear with comfort.
-
I learned to hold the air in my lungs.
-
To hold love in my heart.
-
To keep a vision in my mind.
-
Now, when the darkness comes, it comes.
-
But it doesn’t take from me.
-
I wait patiently in it.
-
Comfortable.

Final days of full training before peak week.
-
Shoulder is still not feeling good at all.
-
But that does not matter because chest and shoulders needed to be trained today.
-
It wasn’t easy.
-
It hurt the entire time.
-
However, I trained smart and safe.
-
Kept my ego in check and got the work done.
-
There’s every reason in the world not to do something.
-
But guess what?
-
Everyone’s got shit going on and they’re still getting it done.
-
Doesn’t matter that:
-
My business is in its first year of operation.
-
I’m in my first year of graduate school at USC.
-
I’m planning a wedding to @missjessica27.
-
Our family moved to a new place and Sammie started 1st grade at a new school.
-
I’m dealing with random bouts of blindness and other visual obstacles on a daily and hourly basis.
-
That I injured my shoulder the second week of prep.
-
Why?
-
Because there’s people who have it even harder  or are even busier and more importantly because I said I was gonna do this.
-
I chose this and there’s no “right” or “perfect” time for ANYTHING.
-
You either are or you aren’t.
-
You either will or you won’t.
-
You ether do or you don’t.
-
There are no excuses.
-
Win or learn. Period.

“People get pushed to the brink. They get pushed to the edge. And it’s what you do when you get to that edge, that determines what you’re going to be. Go be a bitch or do the fucking work.” Andy Frisella.
-
Been opening up more about my random vision loss lately, the time that pushed me to the brink, to the edge.
-
It isn’t easy to talk about because it broke me at first.
-
I allowed it to beat me.
-
I let it win.
-
And quite honestly, to this day, I’m ashamed I let it.
-
But it is what it is.
-
It happened.
-
It sucked.
-
It was unexpected.
-
It was unfair.
-
However, I’m still here.
-
I can still see most of the time.
-
I have issues that most don’t, but it could always be worse.
-
I’m grateful for what I have.
-
Issues or no issues.
-
There are no excuses.

After going into a funk over my #kentuckymuscle performance I’m ready to get 2018 rolling! Going to be putting this look to shame. My back will be bigger and more conditioned. Can’t wait to connect with some of the greats and get a handle on this horrible posing/ stage presence which is my #1 priority. If you can’t pose as an ifbb pro NO REASON TO SHOW UP!!! So until then it’s all about posing. Currently sitting at a comfortable 220lbs. #ifbb #tbt #npc #mensphysique #classicphysique #bodybuilding #teamventura #perfectposing #deadcenter #biggerbetter #conditioning #gottagetbetter #believeinyourself #anythingispossible #icandoallthingsthroughchrist #cleveland #mygamehisglory

“A real man, in the dark, when nobody’s watching—he’s putting in work.” Erik Thomas.
-
This is one of my absolute favorite quotes of all time because, quite literally, I’ve put in work in the dark.
-
In the dark, I mean without vision. No site. Pitch black.
-
In the dark, I would do hundreds of push ups until I couldn’t lift myself up.
-
In the dark, I would feel around the floor for dumbbells and curl bars and train shoulders or arms.
-
In the dark, I would push myself past pain, past tears, past fear and I would work.
-
There is no substitute for the work.
-
For the process.
-
In the dark.
-
In the light.
-
In the gym.
-
On the stage.
-
There are no excuses.
