18 Days Out for the Arnold Pro Raw Challenge

18 days out and feeling pretty good. I had been a bit worried about making weight, but that's all squared away. Now I can focus just on lifting and peaking for the meet-- without having to let making weight stress me out. Next time around I definitely won't let myself get so far away from my competition weight-- it just added a whole lot more stress to an already stressful training cycle.
