64 Weeks

I'm sitting at home looking at my boyfriend's drawn face, his vascular arms, and his tired eyes. J slumps in the chair, barely able to keep his eyes open. It's the day before his show. He feels like crap, he's got no energy, and he fantasizes out loud about all the food commercials on TV. He's ready.

Tomorrow is the NPC Maryland Championships!

Tonight we'll head to the weigh-in, and then to the spray tan location. J is a mix of Irish and Portuguese, and while the rest of his family inherited the dark Portuguese skin, he was blessed with very pale, white Irish skin ... skin that somehow rejects all attempts at tanning. Thank goodness for spray tan services at shows!

The show begins tomorrow at 10:30 am. That's when the culmination of 64 weeks of intense training, 22 weeks of cardio, and 20 weeks a strict diet will pay off. He's ready to go, and I couldn't be more proud of him!

My Jerry
