Congrats on a job well done mate. u worked ur ass off and it all paid of in the end cant wait to see pics from the comp!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Not so good. I stressed my body too much. Heres the short story. Friday I looked great, fuller, harder, leaner. Sat I woke up feeling like complete Shit. I looked better than Friday so I decided to drive and do the show anyways. The whol3 drive there I had bad diarrhea. So I kept water in so I wouldn't dehydrate myself too much. Got to the show and still felt awful. Got on stage for pre judge and was just sweating like crazy. Never cramped up or felt dizzy just my stomach felt shitty. My body started. Holding a lot of water. After pre judge I was so tired I slept till the night show. Went did my routine placed fourth then drove home. The next day I woke up and my legs were really weak. I thought it was just front posing and Shit. The the day after that I could walk. I could barely move my arms, and my breathing was starting to get harder. So off to the ER I went.....I had to be carried by my dad and girlfriends father. Found out my potassium levels were so low that if I waited any longer my heart would have stopped. The doc said my diet wasfine, but doing so much cardio, taking an herbal diuretic, using the sauna, diarrhea, and too much water loading before depleting flushed out just about every electrolyte in my body. So that scared the Shit outta me....then a day after that my left leg below my knee swelled up and hurt like a bitch. I couldn't walk on it or anything. So back to the er. Found out I have cellulitis (skin infection) from shaving for the show while my immune system was so weak. I'm still in the hospital gettin iv antibiotics. Not the way I wanted my first couple of shows to end. Shit sucks! Iv potassium feels like fire pumping into your veins. I was supplementing potassium at the end too. Just too much with the diarrhea and sweating so bad on stage. I'll never compete if I'm feeling sick again....definitely not worth it.
