Change takes time

Your body isn’t going to change overnight. Your mind is pretty much the same speed, if not slower. You have to believe you can before anything else will happen.

A couple of weeks ago I wouldn’t have thought about putting some of these photos online because they’re ‘less than flattering.’ But you know what, that’s my face. That’s my body. And it’s not going to look different tomorrow. Or the next day. So suck it up.

I made the conscious decision to work harder at losing weight. I think everyone kind of hits that point (at some point) where they’ve absolutely had enough and want to change their circumstances, whatever they may be. I have found that point, and I’m working. By God it’s not easy.

Anyway, here’s a few photos from this weekend.

Love always,


I could see for miles, miles, miles

Title inspired by Holocene, Bon Iver. I’ve been listening to a lot of Bon Iver lately and this song just seemed to fit today.

So I’m just capping off a long weekend now, took a drive down to the place which I term the ‘second dock’. I tweeted some photos when I was down there and promised I would upload a few more to here. Funny, when I was done taking pictures I turned around and there was a baby black bear behind me! Now, I’m petrified of bears, but for some reason this one didn’t cause me to have a breakdown. I remained very calm and he just ran in through the trees and went about his/her business. I wouldn’t get out of my car again out of fear that Mama bear might be around too.

Anyways, here’s some photos from today. Wish I had gotten a pic of little bear but he was just too fast for my iPhone lol.
