Be The Change

Be The Change

Sometimes I wonder if you’ve ever done to her what you did to me.

When the doors are shut and there’s no one around and you have no one else to take your anger out on. Do you turn to her like you did to me?

Then I think, if you haven’t…when will you?

I mean, it’s only a matter of time isn’t it? Continue reading “Be The Change”

Get Clear

Get Clear

This picture was taken almost 4 years ago, which seems insane when I really think about it.

But I remember when I first posted it. I was so proud. This shoot was so very well planned and every shot was thought out. Believe it or not, a lot of these poses aren’t easy to capture. It’s hard to stay still in a position that’s not natural, while flexing, and sitting on a hard surface, and trying to make a good face at the same time.

What I’m getting at, is a lot of effort goes into shots like this. And when I first posted this photo that I thought was so classy and classic, I got such mixed feedback. I had family members call my parents and ask “what’s Jamie doing?!” And be very taken aback by it. Continue reading “Get Clear”

The Pepper Potts to your Iron Man

The Pepper Potts to your Iron Man

You know, that amazing creature that Gwyneth Paltrow plays who manages to keep the insane life and business of Tony Stark organized and in order so he can run around doing his thing with that non-stop creative brain of his? Yeah, her.

She looks like a mythical creature, right? You’ve thought to yourself many times… “I just need a Pepper Potts” and you’re probably right.

But here’s the thing… Do you know what that entails? Do you know that it will require you letting go of some of the control? Do you know that it will require you to hire the best? Someone with the skills to do it? Someone who can manage YOU and your alpha, constantly creating mind? Do you know that will require you to reach into your pockets and pay what it takes to hire the best?

Bad Marketing

Bad Marketing

Friends; Adding people blindly into your Group is NOT a way to get people to engage and believe in your brand or business. It’s actually rude as fuck.

Do you like it when the people at the mall grab you and try to file your nails? Or straighten your hair as you walk by? Or God forbid, shove a perfume in your face when you were simply minding your own business? Continue reading “Bad Marketing”

Healthy Weight

Healthy Weight

Yesterday I weighed in at 130.8 and screamed with excitement.

You see, 2 years ago I started this journey to healthy and 130 was my ideal “healthy weight” but I wanted to build it on.

Not like I really had any choice in the matter. I always hovered around 117-119 my entire adult life. I could eat more than a grown man and not gain an ounce. Continue reading “Healthy Weight”

Why I Pay Extra for Uber Black

Why I Pay Extra for Uber Black

Yes; just little ol’ me, my bookbag, and small suitcase sat in a full size, blacked out Yukon on my drive to the airport today.

Yes, it costs about double the price of a regular Uber.

Something some people might think is crazy, shit…there was a time I thought it was ridiculous too! But there’s a big mindset lesson here so read on…. Continue reading “Why I Pay Extra for Uber Black”

Always Sick…

Always Sick…

“Skinny fat”… it’s a thing. It’s a thing no one thinks is a problem… and for some, maybe it’s not…but for me it was a BIG problem.

I was always sick.
I had no energy.
I had zero strength.
I could eat more than most grown men I knew but never gained a pound.

I remember seeing the picture on the left right after it was taken and being embarrassed (see bottom of post). That “skinny minnie” look everyone always said they were so jealous of was NOT how I wanted to look. Not even a little bit… but I didn’t know anything else was possible.

After many years of rapidly losing weight, never feeling good, more doctors appointments than I can count, passing out several times in public because my body shut down, and more hospital stays than I cared to have in a lifetime, I decided to take matters into my own hands.
