Day 26 of Movember

Day 26 of Movember

The homestretch! Where my ‘stache didn’t bother me at all before, I’m starting to become more aware of this hairy thing on my upper lip now. I trimmed my chin and sides last week, but they’ve grown back to about where they were before. I’ma look ridic with just the ‘stache at the end of the week. Stay tuned!

Day 15 of Movember

Day 15 of Movember

Halfway through! This is about the longest I’ve ever let my facial hair grow. I’m sure you can see why. I’ll probably start trimming my chin and sides soon. Fortunately, it doesn’t itch or bother me much at all. Though, it’s a different story for my girlfriend. ;)

Clean Shaven for Day 1 of Movember

Clean Shaven for Day 1 of Movember

I hate shaving! I haven’t been clean-shaven in years… maybe almost a decade! I’ve also never grown my facial hair out for more than maybe 10 or so days… and it isn’t pretty. My girlfriend isn’t thrilled about it, but I will be growing out my mustache through the month of November to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. At least she gets to see my bare face for the first time! :)

Over a Week Into Intermittent Fasting

I had always related fasting with religion. I had never thought about it as a lifestyle or in terms of nutritional science. That is until my girlfriend chose not to eat for an entire day.

I Just Felt Like Running…

One of my favorite movies of all time is Forrest Gump. I don’t really have any method to my madness of movie-rating. I just like certain movies because I do.
