I've decided to enter :iconwriterssenshipageant:!
Please expect a lot of updates involving my original senshi character. I'm sure I'll update with original stuff every now and then as well, though I've got other places for my more professional portfolio. If you want to see what I'm up to with original work, check out my blog at The Danger of Going to Starbucks. Thank you!

Not Art Related In The Slightest

I'm doing a 21 day challenge to cut back on carbs and (bad) fatty foods in my life. Day 4 and I'm having a bowl of frozen peas for a snack instead of pasta.

Diets are really hard. I've been craving a cheeseburger all week, and have opted for healthier sandwiches, soups and salads instead. These are filling, but not necessarily satisfying. It's supposed to take 21 days to develop a habit. I've always had a difficult time changing the way I eat, so I'm not usually optimistic when presented with a different way of attacking the same goal.

It's not that I don't like my body. On the contrary, I'm rather confident about how I carry my weight in almost any situation, wearing almost anything. So how I look isn't the problem. It's how I feel, and at 5' 5.5" and 175lbs, I don't feel healthy.

I know, 175 ain't that bad, but it's not good and at my age it only gets harder to lose from here on out. I get tired more easily than I used to, I don't have much in the way of upper body strength and I already have some minor heart issues. Diabetes runs in the family too.

Still, I love the heavy foods and with the way I normally eat, adding more exercise to my life isn't going to cut it in the long run. Thus, 21 days of minimal pasta, bread, crackers, cake, beef, bacon, dairy-heavy foods, pasta, bread, pasta... did I say bread? Yeah... I really want a cheeseburger. And fries. And a chocolate milkshake.

Alas, I already poured the peas. Might as well eat them.

Thank you for adding the image below and others to your folders. I am truly honored by your support of my work. 

If you ever have a few minutes and you'd like to see more of my work (some of which is not in my DA galleries), I invite you to visit my website ( ) or my Facebook page ( ). And if you like what you see there, I always appreciate “Likes”. If not, I fully understand.

Either way, thanks for the “fav” and the support. I hope you have a good rest of the week. :)

And I hope this doesn't sound too weird, but I noticed you're in Niagara Falls. I'm in the Buffalo area for the next 18 months or so and am always looking for folks to go shooting (camera) with or just have coffee with once in a while. If you're ever in the mood to wander the local area with a camera (or meet a fellow DA deviant for coffee), please keep me in can PM me here or e-mail me at .
