Great question. Where has Chad been? He said he was competing in 7 weeks and would start posting. Why hasn't he? I know some of you might be asking.
Let me give you some updates. I have built my coaching business pretty well but have been doing doing consulting work for a nutrition company. In all of that, I was named acting VP of Marketing for this nutrition company (don't want to name it here because I don't think it would be appropriate on this forum.
I am now working 7 days a week which is insane. My workouts and diet are dialed in and doing well. I am about 201.5 and need to be around 192-194. I probably could compete in 7 weeks but something will break if I do. I decided to choose another contest in mid-October in California (about 15 weeks away) to give me some extra time and try breath a little bit.
I am taking a deload week this week to kind of put it all together. I will probably hire a coach during this time so I don't have to try to figure everything out during this very busy time in my life.
I am definitely living the dream. Has it been easy? By no means but it has been worth it. God has definitely done all of this. It hasn't been me (yes, I have gone out and done the hard work but God has opened up all the doors for me).
When I get back from my deload week. I will start posting my prep. Should be fun preparing and I have definitely made some improvements in 2 years which I am excited to be able to show in October.
I apologize to all of you where I have said "here I go" for prep. Lots of starts and stops and winding roads. From 2012-2014 competing was very high on my list on things I wanted to do. It has taken a backseat these past few years.
The good thing is my diet and workout habits have been the same. I am just not in a "shredded" state. I will get there. It should be a fun journey.
