A New Year

Hey Guys!

Yes, I'm still alive, lol.  Besides holidays and a busy life, I've been working hard at getting ready for my bodybuilding competition thats coming up this March!  Super excited!  It is so wonderful to be able to put so much effort into doing something right when so often that seem so beyond possible, but food and lifestyle are on point for a good show.

I wanted to show you this outfit shoot from the fall that I enjoyed so much downtown.  Hope that you enjoy it too.  Hope that you all are well!  And yeah, a new year--- Happy 2015!

Recipe - Instant Muscle Pudding

You're going to love this!  This is a daily go to for me when I’m low on my protein intake, and short on time.  It’s about as quick as mixing up a protein drink but more satisfying, and much more of a treat!   And yes, its super fast.  It takes like a fatty thick vanilla custard- not overly sweet, if you prefer sweeter then consider a few drops of stevia, or some honey (or more powder). 

A few notes:  I prefer using MRM brand Egg White Protein: it smells almost like coconut and has a gorgeous flavor.  You could play around with all kinds of protein powders, whey, brown rice, etc., and they’ll all give you a whole spectrum of flavors.  I’d avoid Casein protein however—it's something like mixing and eating a quick set concrete :)  Also pay special attention to your brand of greek yogurt, some vary greatly in nutrition.  The Nutrition values given are from using the Kirtland Signature brand greek yogurt.

1 Scoop Vanilla Egg White Protein Powder

What I Wore - Love You More

Hi guys, 

Really LOVED posing for these photos.  My talented, blogger wife Emily takes them all, so we have an awesome time of it usually taking turns shooting each other.  Turns whatever else were doing into a date- though sometimes a date with the kids in tow. 

Pretty simple, pretty casual, and pretty dark, and yes shorts for a few weeks longer.

Any one else have a hard time not always going to the black in their wardrobe?? lol

What I Wore - Dirty Paws

Hey Guys!

What can I say?  Velvet trousers :)  Yeah, I like this outfit.  Black always feels appropriate, and for sure the loud graphic can speak in place of color on this look.  Nice to wear a T-shirt while the days are still warm this autumn.

Is it just me, or is there not something empowering about wearing a big tiger across your chest!

What I Wore - A World Alone

Hey Guys!

Its been nice weather around here and good times.  

Got to spend a few hours in an old industrial part of my home town.  There are some great colorful eateries, and stores to wander through.  Best of all there are some fantastic old buildings to go exploring around, great for photo shoots:) 

Isn't it funny how you think you know some places so well, and yet can still discover new things about them?  Things are always changing but I think maybe our perception shifts as well.

I've had this shirt a while, I love it, with its matching skinny tie - I picked them up back when I lived in Great Britain--- Oh those university days :)
