The last month has been kinda crazy. I set out to lose 10 pounds back in June and I’m pretty sure I’ve accidentally lost 16. A few mornings I went to put on a shirt and immediately changed it because I felt like I was swimming in quality fabric. So after losing 15, I’m gonna try to put on 5-7 pounds of muscular goodness. Unless I suddenly have the freedom to become a track and field machine again, I don’t plan on going below 220…unless I can be below 220 and still look like I’m 220. Nahmean yo? By the way, I know there are at least 20 women out there saying “Oh f*cking boo-hoo on your weight loss. I look at a cookie and put on pounds.” My advice: stop looking at cookies then. Pause.
In addition to my day gig, my writings here, the running of SBM, and the running on a treadmill, I’ve started working on a new project. I’ve been motivated since coming back from LA and the idea that I have has continued to expand into something that will hopefully allow me to end the 9-5 struggle. And as I’ve mapped out this project and talked to a few people, uncertainty has grown. The only thing that’s certain from these conversations is that these people believe in me and will be trusted resources as this idea becomes tangible. Everything else is in flux and this whole process is forcing me to realize how inefficient I’ve been in different aspects of my life.
So right now, I’m trying to overhaul and reorganize my lifestyle so that I have time to manage this new project without having everything else go to sh*t. Oh yeah, it has absolutely nothing to do with sex or relationships. I’ve always wanted to make a name for myself another way. And truthfully, I don’t think I’ll be able to sustain my writing in the relationship niche in the long haul. The whole pontificating to women about what they should be doing or who they are gets tiring. This project would be the perfect way to branch from that and reach the type of audience I’ve had in mind for some time. It’s exciting — a little scary navigating into this new territory but still exciting nonetheless.
As I learn lessons along the way, I’ll share them here. I also looked through the list of names and email addresses from my fundraising campaign. I’ma try and do all videos, emails, and chats in 1 day. The exact date is yet to be determined, but I just wanna make sure I’m not distracted and half-assing given the amount of stuff going on. Hopefully folks get that. And if not, hit me up via email. Just know that if you don’t get a response within 24 hours and proceed to email me again with “HELLLOOOO?!?” that I probably won’t respond at all.
So yeah, bear with me folks. I’ve got some good stuff planned.
