I was filling up my work truck at the local gas station and looked around me today, and I saw a bunch of impostors pretending to be men. Guys with more jewelry than I've seen women wear, neatly cut and glossed fingernails, yes I said glossed, I saw it at the cash register, and one wearing so much cologne I could smell it from 2 pumps away, and he had enough grease in his hair to lube a 5th wheel axle. I don't expect everyone to know that that is. Driving down the highway there were billboards for laser hair removal with men that had no body hair at all and I asked myself.... Is it not ok to be a man anymore? I don't spend 2 hours in front of a mirror shaving with a pair of clippers and a ruler on my face, I keep my hair short so its easy to manage, if it looks like crap, I put a hat on, and I pull up my mismatched socks because where I'm going, I'm going to need boots or shoes. I have hair on my chest, like I'm supposed to. When I look at a big pile of meat on a bun I think, It's going to need some bacon, no I'm not worried about the extra calories, you know why? because I'm going to burn them off doing something productive, like build something, or teach my buddy's kid how to throw a ball and build up some physical prowess, so when he goes off to school he can walk the 3 houses down the street to the bus stop without his mom driving him there, and I teach him not to be a dick about being stronger than someone else, because its not ok to push someone around just because you are, a real man protects the weak. Its time we reverted back to being real men, instead of getting manicures and shaving our chests. I'm a man and I'm damn proud of it.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
