Day 1358 of 365 4 lyf. Still catching up. Always catching up. Still doing P90X and loving it. Definitely a good workout. Bought some bands to use for it. I have weights, but in a lot of ways these are more versatile. Well, they’re nice to have in any case. Look at those muscles. 365…

Day 725 of 365 More. So I’ve been seriously slacking off with my workouts lately, and I’ve paid for it. When I weighed in last week I was a full ten pounds over where I was last Jammy Jam. And Jammy Jam is all about being sexy. That’s the impetus I needed to get back…

Day 669 of 365 More.

In some ways I miss last year. This time last year I was unemployed and looking for work. Looking for work only takes so much time out of your week, so the rest of the time I spent working on photography and working out like I was in prison.

I was in great shape.

I’m not anymore. I’m fat and flabby and generally just not comfortable in my body. I spend most of my day at work and most of my evenings working on the comic strip or the podcast. It doesn’t leave a lot of time for anything else.

Don’t get me wrong, I love doing the podcast and Hellcats is a childhood dream come true. I mean, I’d be happier with both of them if I had more of an audience, but I’m hopeful that will happen.

I just don’t much like looking in the mirror or looking at pictures of me anymore.

So I took a break tonight and did some weight lifting. I don’t really feel like I look any better, but it’s a start. I need to work on the strip some more tonight, but if I can do that and still convince myself to get up early tomorrow, maybe I’ll put in 30 min. on the elliptical.

It’s time to bring sexy back one more time.

Day 336 of 365 days. Ok, I’m maybe a little neurotic. Maybe a little. This is probably one of the most personal posts I’ve made in a long time. As I sit here editing it, I realize more and more how hard it is to admit these things out loud to anyone especially the entire…

There’s a funny thing about shooting a tarot deck, that you might have noticed if you’ve been paying attention. I have a lot more female models than male ones. Even for the cards that have to be naked, its just a lot easier to find women willing to pose for the deck than men. Its funny, because in real life, you’d expect the exact opposite.

Luckily, I have a large selection of professional wrestling friends to draw from when I need male models. Joe was willing to pose for my strength card.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out as well. Pretty much exactly what I was going for. BUt still comments and criticism highly welcome.

26 cards done. That’s 1/3 of the way through. Whee!

Day 221 of 365 days. I had been wanting to do another bodyscaping style pic, and this weeks Class with Dave assignment kind of gave me the excuse to do so. It also meant that I had to go downstairs and lift some before taking the shot, something that I have been seriously neglecting (and…

Day 159 of 365 days. My unemployment day has worked into a pretty good routine. I get up late, play around with flickr and my photography (today, editting my friend Nicki’s photoshoot), then I talk to people online, eat lunch and get in my daily workout. My flickr friend, the lovely and talented Jessi has…

Day 57 of 365 days. Believe it or not, I don’t just say as gorgeously hunky as I am naturally. it takes a bit of work. Work that I have been neglecting lately. One of the secrets to staying in shape is to take some of your exercise equipment (notably this elliptical machine Steph and…
