Ready to rumble!

Two weeks out and I’m 296 pounds. Looking forward to going home and buckling down. This is where I want to be right now. In my wildest fantasy I was in the 290s heading into the Olympia, and I’m on par to do that. Still don’t know if it will happen or not. I’ve been trying to be 290 for the past two and a half years. Something always goes wrong at the end. I haven’t been in the 290s this far out though. 288 is the heaviest I’ve been. I’ve only eating twice today right now, so really I’m two meals away from 300 pounds. Mentally, I’ve never been this focused. I don’t want to sound crazy, but in all honesty, this is the first year I’ve been a bodybuilder 100 percent. I’m blessed genetically. I will admit that as far as being lean goes. I’m not talking about contest. I’m talking about walking around – it’s not that hard for me to keep a decent amount of body fat and I’ve used that as a crutch in the past. This year, I didn’t bank on my genetics. I did the work. I ate the meals. I did the cardio. I lifted the weights. The results speak for themselves. I literally started my diet (my diet-diet) on August 15, and that’s not even been a month yet. I started preparing for the Olympia on July 15, but the first four weeks I was eating whatever. I’m in my fifth week of hardcore dieting. Normally us pros diet 10-12 weeks. I’m not worn out. I’m eating more than 3,000 calories per day and 4,000 on high days. I’m not hungry, but I’m hungry for the Olympia. X. *Editors' note: There was an error in this entry that has been corrected but should be noted. Toney had only eaten twice at that point in the day, and a typo stated he was only eating two meals per day. That is erroneous. Toney eats every two to three hours.
