Mental breakdowns aside, this photo shoot turned out to be a fun adventure! Enjoy!
Lately, I have been researching what it means to be a man. I have been using many resources to dig into this and figure this out for myself. I will get into more of these resources in following blog posts.
Watch this clip from the Man of Steel and ask yourself this question, “Who do you think the real man in this clip is?”
On April 1st of this year I pulled the trigger and joined a weight loss program at Huber Personalized Medicine. On that day I weighed 283 pounds with a body fat percentage of 37.3. I had 75 pounds of risky fat. In other words I was obese. This was the most I had ever weighed in my life. Aside from that I knew my body was unhealthy. You know it is time to lose weight when it is difficult to put your socks on! I could not wear my favorite t-shirts and had to wear the same shirts cause those fit me at the time. I knew it was time for a change but I could not find the strength on my own.
I still remember my first garden. I was a little dude and my father and I planted some seeds in the ground and watched them grow. The “Easter Bunny” brought me some gardening tools and seed that year. Fast forward to last year and I revisited the desire to start my own garden. In my spare time I learn as much information I can about gardening. At the end of this post I will list some resources that have helped me along the way. Enjoy the progression of our garden through these photos!
This is not a post about New Year’s resolutions. In fact, I do not believe in them. Here is why, only 8% of people who make New Year’s resolutions stick to them. If they do stick to them it will last only a week and I would bet most people are out of the game by the end of January. However, I do like setting goals and January is an ideal time to reevaluate your life goals.
Meet Erica and Illana, my cousins. Taking photos of photogenic people is tons of fun. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot!
