    i also had to replace nuts and pb with mac oil. but id get up in the middle of the night and drink the mac oil. pathetic. so i switched to olive oil. tasty still but not as tasty as mac oil. but i ended up hiding that in my sister's room at night time tho...just in case when i got up (i dont sleep st8t through, i get up at least 2times a night) i felt an urge to drink that too.

    This is my third year with Dave. But staying far away from peanuts and peanut butter. They have been my downfall. I replaced them last year mid way thru the prep with oils and walnuts. It made dieting so much easier. Doing the same this year.

    No worries with me drinking mac nut oil. I'm glad to find out I'm not the only one with the nuts and nut butters problem. I thought I was just being weak. There must be a physiological reason we all do this.

    I'm not sure. I wanted to do the NPC Mountain Valley Classic in my hometown of Reading PA. That way all of family and the friends I have here can be there. It's been held for four years I believe and it's a national qualifier, not that it matters. It's been held in the end of Oct or beginning of Nov. I called the promoter to find out the date since it hasn't been posted and told me he's not sure he's running it this year. He'll know after the Lehigh Classic which is held in May. If he does hold the Mountain Valley...that will be my first show.

    If not, I need to find a November show. I would prefer it be in driving distance so my family can still attend. I'm looking at an NPC show held in Norfolk VA.....Virginia State and Washington DC Championships (something like that) held on November 7th. I think there was a NY show put on my Bev and Steve in November last year.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    I know, I couldn't believe how many girls I talked to that had the same problem during prep. I think it has something to do with our hormones ( I prefer to think that then think that I am just too weak)

    Stay strong GM and good luck with your prep!

    Some thoughts on my prep so far

    I am so happy with the way this prep has been going. There have been no changes to the diet since i started 6.5 weeks ago and i have had two refeeds. I am progressing at a rate that has NEVER happened; I have lost more in the last 6.5 weeks then i have in all the other preps the entire 12 weeks! I feel great!!! Sure i have had some tired days and some days where i wasn't quite feeling it in the gym but hell i have those offseason. I am hungry but i welcome it that it means my metabolism is still burning through all the food!! (and I have lots of it and lots of carbs )

    I can't thank Jeremy enough for having me take last year off. We got my metabolism working got my caloric intake way up and my cardio way down. And going through the hard time from jan-june last year when we were trying to find out why my body was not responding gave me time to really think about why I do this. I no longer WO and eat clean because i am afraid i will gain weight back. I do it because i am a bodybuilder. I am over the scale causing me stress. I can now not be bothered when the number goes up It is just a tool that helps determine how my body is responding. I look way better now at 136lbs then i did at 125 when i had less muscle. I LOVE what i do! I think going into prep with this outlook has made a world of difference. I don't dread the cardio. It is part of the tools that will get me freaky shredded. I have had zero issues with the diet (even though i was worried after 15 months of huge weekly cheats and much more fun food that it would be hard)

    I am really enjoying and experiencing this prep. I know harder days are coming and i welcome the challenge.

    I will bring the best me physically and mentally to stage this year!!!

    GM - you're near Lancaster? I used to go there all the time when I was younger! Almost moved there, in fact, but then the parents decided to make us go to the Poconos instead... Anyway, I digress... why don't you check out a Jersey show??

    if anyone reads my posts at this point in prep, you would say WHAT A BEOTCH! i try to treat myself to little things at this point ...like a new mag, bubble bath etc...
    I laughed at your comment about sore tail bone...I took my yoga mat to work and I lay down in my office at lunch time, but it hurts! I do the same thing with non-food treats, lipstick. I'm hanging in there. And when I want to dive into the pb, I think about my competators who are staying on track.

    Let me know if you do!! I haven't decided if I'm going to do any fall shows yet (I'll know more after this first one is out of the way), but my bf competes so I'll probably be at them anyhow!

    What a relief! I am not alone. I thought I was weak too, having lost it with pb so many times. The urge for oil and nuts gets overwhelming during my prep.
