Having a challenging time trying to get back in the Zone like I was 1 year ago when I shaved off the fat in a shorter time period than this contest. Who knows, maybe its the fact we have more time until the final weigh-in or that I like to make things more challenging for myself. This season, I look at this challenge is within myself and how much can I hold back my impulsive appetite. The strong competitors of Trien and Craft may bring their A-game, but Craft with a baby may hurt or help is chances at winning. Time will tell. Trien seems to be quite bitter about losing last season and this might motivate him even further. However, as he blogs, he is unable to give up the bottle. Only time and future weigh-ins will tell what will really happen. It just so happens that there is a festival right out my front door this weekend and last year I was able to avoid any temptation that was presented to me. This year is a different story (see pics below).
