I like to eat, and take pictures...sometimes at the same time. Skateboarding's awesome, too. Mangia!
My appetite is shrinking…

We’ve all heard it before, but it’s always good to gently remind ourselves that life is precious. I heard about a friend who passed yesterday and even though death is inevitable, it still is sometimes hard to believe. We used to work together at AMR many years ago, and he helped out at my paramedic school, was even gonna be my preceptor. He left EMS years ago to work as a cop in Capitola and I heard he was Officer of The Year back in 2008, then was promoted to Detective. Craziness. May his soul rest in peace. Tell someone today you love them, cherish every waking moment with the ones you love. Life moves too fast. (at Taqueria Cancun)

I don’t think I’m never gonna use mayonnaise again. Sure the avocado makes it look funkier, but that just adds to the fun of one of my favorite finger foods. What do you think @l3wdog?

I heard an interesting story on NPR the other day about how humans process the idea of loss, and how we Americans are generally pretty bad at saving money. The story explained how we basically don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone, and once it is, we do out best to restore the idea of what we thought it is or was, even if it financially or emotionally make complete sense. For example, that car (or significant other, apartment, decadent food, etc.) that gives you troubles but then you think about rad it was to have it in your life in hindsight, despite the headaches it caused you. Then you’ll go out as try to replicate that feeling of nostalgia, whatever the cost. Then the story segued into how we deal with taxes and paying ahead versus on the actual due date. Long story short, the story was saying you don’t miss it if you don’t have it, so that was the scientific preferable way to be fiscally responsible. Interesting stuff. Hump Day is also over, the weekend is in sight!

It’s almost Wednesday!

Sleeping in, cooking, catching up on paperwork, getting in a morning walk, wrenching on the truck and hanging out with @magnethead plus some tasty short ribs makes for a pretty radical Sunday. Cheers!

Day 5 has my six pack and Adonis lines back, my lats tight and my traps and tri’s defined…plus some tight-ass gluts! YEAH RIGHT!! I know that diets are pretty much useless, but lifestyle changes and a healthy perspective on food, moderation, eating, balance and enjoying what it all entails, is key. The first couple days haven’t been bad at all, luckily no crazy pains, weakness or even cravings. I also didn’t weight myself at the beginning because I think weight is just a number, I gauge my fitness and happiness on how my clothes fit me and how I feel, physically and mentally. Also, losing weight is not one of my goals. Again, not sure if it’s all in my head but I woke up feeling energized and rested (can’t remember when that happened last), ready to start the day. Whatever it is, it seems to be working. Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!

I woke full of energy and don’t feel too run down…is it psychosomatic? Hmm, not sure. I woke up today at 4AM wide awake, ready for the day. Day 4 and my appetite is less and I don’t have as much gas, but I do feel kinda bloated. Me and @cdamigone are gonna do some shopping tomorrow and figure out some good meals. Since she’s been galavanting in Palm Springs all week, she got a by for the first four days but now we’re both in it to win it! Teamwork makes things easier, and a awesome partner makes things that much easier. Have a great weekend!
