Pugs_Life first competition coming in 2015

Hello there, I am looking at entering my first competition next year. I need to put a line in the sand as I have been up and down with my weight for a while now and begenning to get annoyed with myself and I have always want to step on the stage for years.
 
Current stats:
Age 24
Height 5'9
Weight 16st 3lbs (.8 to be exact)
Stature typical rugby player, stocky, broad shoulders but with a bit of a belly now :( 
 
I will admit that I am a chocolate demon and when I am tired I will reach for the easiest thing available to me. I do have a rather busy life. The missus and I work full time and have a 20 month old and a 8 week old, so all go for me but...
 
No more excuses. I know next years comps are a bit of a way away but I do have a few stone to lose. Any advice on what category & federation to enter would be much appreciated,  I am thinking either BNBF northern or UKBFF mens physique as I wont be nor have used 'enhancements'.
 
My training will be over a four day spilt Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday with 2/3 30min HIIT per week. I will post my diet later on.
 
Stay tuned in and follow my progress, again any input from anybody will be great.

Until I do further research on the diet I will be eating roughly this most days as the food as easy to prep and relatively cheapish.

(6.15) Meal 1 2 eggs, 2 Turkey rashers on two granary bread

(10.30) Meal 2 100g of potato with 1tin of tuna

(1.30) Meal 3 (protein shake and 3 rice cakes)

(4.30) Meal 4 same as meal 2

(7.30) Meal 5 clean meal will decide on the day

(10.30) Meal 6 protein shake


Which gives me something like this without the shakes and rice cakes, so including those should be an additional say circa 300kcal

Hi Pug!!
 
Nice to hear of another BNBF prospective competitor.
 
The gym is The Olympic Gym owned by Paul and Tania George. Address as posted by Flick. The clubs won't be starting up now until after Xmas but are usually once a month and worth going to meet up with like minded people. We just generally train, chat and when the weather gets warmer we will start the posing practice. It costs no more than the usual gym entry fee. If you're not too far away from Eccles, might be worth you starting to train there . The guys are brilliant, truthful and encouraging and don't take to fools gladly!! They will help anyone who is keen and listens. They do offer a full PT/comp prep service (at a cost obviously) and the guys who have joined them have been very successful. If you do go along tell them Flick and I sent you there and to be gentle LOL!!
 
Good luck with the training.
