2012-01-05, Week 3, Weekly Progress Photos


Progress Photos 2012-01-05 ©2012Yee Haw!  As you can see in the photo, this week’s hat is a Cowboy Hat in honor of my recent trip to the UCWDC Country Dance World Championships.

Each week I’ll wear a different hat just to keep it interesting and so that the photos don’t look too much alike.   I have quite a few hats so it should be a while before I repeat.  [grin].  Oh my!  This could be FUN!

2011-12-29, Week 2, Weekly Progress Photos


Progress Photos 2011-12-29 ©2012This past week was more mental than physical, so the numbers were down just a tiny bit.  There is no visible change in the photos, yet!  🙂

On a practical note, I think I’ll change hats each week, just to keep it interesting and so that the photos don’t look too much alike.  Hmmm… I wonder how many hats I have?  [wicked grin].  Oh my!  This could be FUN!

I put a lot of mental effort into answering the questions “What is health?“ and  “What does health mean to me and how does my picture of health fit in with the HAES movement?”  Read the two posts for more info.

Where is the ‘Me” in Health? — After all, it is all about ‘Moi’!


The Da Vinci ManLet Others Define “Health” For You?

In my last post “What is Health?” I showed you, my dear readers, all four of you who are reading this, how to search the web to find out how other people define “health.”  Many of those definitions are reliable and offered by experts in their fields.  You could, of course chose your definition of “health and fitness” from among them.

Or, one could, I suppose, rely upon the reactions of others around you to let you know that you’re fit and healthy.  Hmmmm…  I can envision it now, months from now having finished my journey and living a lifestyle of health, I strut, *ahem*, stride down the streets of Oaklawn……

[ Cue the music for the fantasy sequence … ]

Model with awesome bodyBeing Fit and Healthy means having pecs of death.  It means having biceps and triceps of steel that send shivers of desire up the spine of every red-blooded gay man who sees me.  It means having a set of abs that will stop traffic.  Gay men will look at me and drool.  Straight men will look at me and feel insecure.  Straight women will weep because they can only look but not touch.  Butch biker lesbians will nod their heads in approval.  Being fit and healthy means I will have a body like the guy in the photo to the left.

When people me see me they will…

. . . kinda grunt like they’ve just been punched and softly say “Mer-say!”  while fanning their face with their palm.

Folks will…

. . . turn to their friends and whisper “There ought to be laws,” accompanied by a slight shake of the head and followed by a soft sigh of longing while craning their neck for another glimpse of my perfect physique…

And, some, sadly, will be envious of my success; those poor souls who have been starving themselves silly and have been sweating their ass off in a gym for weeks will glare and mumble…

. . . “Let’s tie the bitch down and stuff Twinkies down her throat! She’s obviously had work done.”
