33/365 Mr Kevin and his Boys
Had a wonderful breakfast with Mr Kevin. He’s sort of my D/s mentor…our talks are always so enlightening. I’ve gotta be at my best for my pups and his advice has been indispensable for our unique relationship.
Also, it was really nice seeing the result of his work. Mr Kevin has a really beautiful air of influence over his subs…it was amazing watching their subtle interactions.
6/365 Perfect hair day
I’ve finally started using a real shampoo/conditioner instead of my Doc Bronners. My hair has been amazing for it.

Singapore is kind of what I imagine a modern-day Babylon would look like. Lush, tropical landscapes everywhere you look, with gorgeous modern architecture bursting from the trees like the buildings were placed by nature.
I’m kind of over-romanticizing it, but the place is gorgeous.
87/365 Checking in
Finally arrived at our hotel in Singapore after 20+ hours of flying. Ready to catch up on some sleep and begin exploring. Phil arrives in 9 hours. Tomorrow is a much needed spa day.
66/365 Week 4 of Cutting
Compared to my first week of cutting, there is not much visual difference. The fat loss is much slower than I was hoping for; I’ve lost 5lbs more of fat and gained a little more muscle (my rump is an inch bigger), but nothing too noticeable.
Nevertheless, with this new cutting regimen I’ve actually improved on some measurements *while* losing fat, so maybe I should just stick with it a little longer. Usually I have a BDD freakout after I lose too much weight because all my measurements are dwindling smaller, but I haven’t had nearly as much body anxiety with this new regimen.
Just two more weeks till I start bulking. Hang in there, me!
55/365 Climbing on Flickr.
Took pup hiking around Santa Cruz as part of his birthday present, and discovered this awesome train bridge. I wanted to do some dramatic shots from the 40-foot drop, but pup was worried I’d slip and die. So. This was all I got to take. :/
49/365 Oysters for Valentines on Flickr.
Pup’s Valentine’s Surprise: five dozen oysters, a picnic basket of goodies and chocolates, an expertly picked cheese platter, and my pup. A perfect day.
41/365 Week 1 of cutting on Flickr.
Pup and I have been cutting for a little over a week (okay, 16 days for me).
I’ve lost about 15lbs of fat, and about half an inch on all my measurements, however my chest has grown +2.5” to an all-time large of 52.5”.
I’m doing a whole new diet (carb restrictive) and workout regime (negative reps to failure)…the results thus far have been surprisingly exceptional. Even pup has lost ~15lbs, while improving on a couple of his measurements.
32/365 Our hotel room on Flickr.
I got us a super cute hotel room in the heart of Playa del Carmen. My speedo doesn’t quite fit. Argh.
31/365 SFO✈CUN on Flickr.
When The Giants won the world series the fans set fire to half the city. So I’m fleeing to Mexico hoping to escape the upcoming NFL-related riots.
Playing with my new Sony SEL1018 10-18mm Wide-Angle Zoom Lens. The distortion is amazing. Can’t wait to take shots in Mexico.
Cutting is going well. I’m down to 250lbs and my backside seems more defined. My jockstrap left a little halo outlining my butt. Huh.
26/365 Location Hunting on Flickr.
To help distract me from pup’s absence, I went driving with Chuck to scout locations for my photo project. It was too cold to actually take any photos…hope it’ll be easier as the weather warms.
21/365 Restaurant Depot! on Flickr.
Because pup is a restaurateur he has access to Restaurant Depot, which is like Costco, but for restaurants. 10-pound boxes of tuna steaks for $50, tubs of authentic mozzarella de buffalo, entire cows butchered to your specifications…Its a little like gainer paradise.
We’ve started shopping here because our combined 10,000+calories/day diets require we buy things in restaurant-size quantities. Sigh.
20/365 Mauled on Flickr.
Pup wanted to know what furries were all about, so we went to a local convention. I was attacked.
19/365 Cheese Hunting on Flickr.
I introduced pup to the concept of cheese platter entertaining over New Years. But now we just make them whenever we’re hungry. I’m a little addicted to cheese platters now. Help me.
