What’s better than burning 1700 calories in one gym visit? Nothing duh, skinny is amazing enough.
Nevertheless, yesterday after leaving another awe-inspiring gym session I somehow wondered into Marshall’s. Well, really I was there to get my mom a belated Mother’s Day gift being that I opted not to get her one since my nephew’s birthday was on the same day (I haven’t got him a gift either.) Per usual I was overwhelmed by the sales that I ended up buying myself three pairs of new shoes and my mom nothing.
I figured Mother’s Day is over she won’t miss a gift besides I got her a computer for Christmas she has yet to use so, I’m good till her birthday.
Back to my awesome finds; while roaming around Marshall’s trying not to walk into the ice cream parlor next door and ruin my solid workout by becoming jiggly.
Side note: cheat days are for those who are ok with being a grease ball forever.
Instead of buying a hot fudge brownie sundae with two scoops of pecan praline ice cream I procured these Puma Lab II FB, Calvin Klein Devin Blue Oxfords and Perry Ellis Saddle Oxfords for a total of $59.95.
The Pumas were originally $65 I got them for $19.99, the Calvin Klein originally $140 I paid $17.98 and the Perry Ellis originally $60 I paid $21.98.
See what happens when you don’t spend your money on junk food, you get to spend your money on more important things like shoes. These are some fun and stylish shoes appropriate for spring/summer. Once again skinny always win. Let’s just hope my mom doesn’t read this post and see where her Mother’s Day gift went.
Who am I kidding she would have to open her computer I BOUGHT in order to know.
Why is it still cold in May?! At least the sun is out and Erin was able to capture my joy of school almost being over! The spring semester of the middle school I mentor at is coming to an end. Though, it’s bittersweet I’m kind of excited to finally be able to travel again. I enjoy being a mentor with Success in The Middle, I always say if I knew what I know now I would be smarter, faster and thinner. Not everyone needs to learn life’s lessons the hard way. I figured I’m not too old to forget the angst and worries of a teen but just old enough to have learned and have things to share with young kids. Being a mentor has help with my patience and opened my eyes to some of the problems and successes within the school system including the students, teachers, parents and overall structure.
I facilitate a reading and math class but I really enjoy the boys’ P.E. class I help out with. I get a kick of seeing these young fat kids run around as well as, watch them settle disputes and implement game rules maturely. Also, I like the complements the kids give me on my attire and the occasional stop in the hall I get from teachers checking for my hall pass. Its nice to know my skin care routine is paying off.

Pretty sure I have hypothermia but I had an amazing time!
Now that I’m thawed and cleaned of the copious amounts colored corn starched I can post about the awesome time I just had at the Color Me Rad 5k run.
Per usual, I look for ways to stay thin whether it be hardcore exercise, new diets or just having a blast outdoors. My friend Liz and her buddy Tim invited me along to participate in the color bomb run. The Color Me Rad 5k is an event that travels across the country to get people outdoors and active while having a colorful blast. Getting dirty hasn’t ever been this much
torture fun. Also, the run teams up with a local charity in your city to which a portion of the proceeds are donated.
You can’t beat burning calories, enjoying a work free Saturday all for a good cause (The Ronald McDonald House) or can you?
When I originally signed up for this run back in March I assumed that May was going to be bright, warm and sunny oh but no, it was 40 degrees and misty with a windchill. This wasn’t a smart pair with my bad habit of dressing for the temperature inside my apartment. Cut to me jogging in this treacherous weather dressed in a tee and shorts not to mention the two Monster energy drinks I guzzled like a fat a** drinking chocolate flavored Mountain Dew (or whatever fat people like to drink) before arriving. My constant urge to pee is what got me through the whole ordeal. My penis/balls has never been so shriveled. I literally had to hunt for it during the bathroom break. Exceeding these undesirable events I really had a delightful time filled with laughs and lots of color.
The extremely cold caused my body temperature to drop and my body shrank therefore, I look thin in all my pics, WIN!
I challenge you all to find new and unexpected way to get fit and lose weight as well as give back.
As a kid I was deadly afraid of carrots. No matter how many times my mom cooked them or hid them in my lunch or told me how “good” they were for me I just couldn’t eat them. I figured if she’s fat then how healthy are carrots really?
Cut to today, I’m a vegetarian and carrots are a part of my diet, same for “prints.”
I HATE PRINTS! Well I thought I did.
I always thought prints were unflattering, redundant and can be dated and borderline tacky. Today I no longer think prints are confusing and overbearing. Progressively I am seeing designers come up with innovated, keen and sensational ways of delivering prints down the runway.
One trend this season for men is printed/graphic suits.
A few posts back I mention that I am trying to get into suits. While aimlessly scrolling on Facebook I ran across Guadalajara, Mexico based menswear designer Paulo Succar.
The 24 year old’s exciting graphic illustrations for his ss/13 collection “Obscure Biology” a mix of Gothic with astronomical illustrations is perfectly paired. I found this collection very modern yet polished, I adore the 50’s silhouette. The skinny-suit with the tapered legs and high hems isn’t bulky but form fitting and lithe. I applaud Paulo’s take on today’s suit particularly how he made it youthful and edgy.
Paulo Succar’s lively graphic suits can be incorporate it into your wardrobe with other pieces. I would suggest adjusting the jacket’s waistline.
Check out Paulo Succar’s collection on Facebook.
My whole body hurts from my shoulders to my toes. But the slacks I’m typing this post in is a size 30 waist so… I’ll deal.
The past week has been very intense in the gym, trying to reach this month’s goal weight of 168 lbs. I keep plateauing at 171 lbs and I’m kind of running out of motivation- literally.
My six miles a day run, 30 minutes fat burn on the elliptical and chest & arms workouts are getting the best of me. Even my two times a week yoga and spin classes has me laid out on my living-room floor contemplating Domino’s Pizza. The jealous aching fat person in me is screaming out SKIP THE GYM! However, I live by the rule: The diet that works is the one you stick to. Like any other fat emergency I took to skimming some of my favorite online men’s magazines to find some Thinspiration.
I stumbled upon this sportswear shoot for the March 2013 issue of El País Semanal with model Garrett Neff, photographed by Bruno Staub and styled by Juan Cebrián.
The funny thing is, this is what I think I look like when I’m headed to the gym. Nothing gets me more motivated to be skinny than fashion. Add that with some sleek hip contemporary fitness gear then I’m amped! Originally the styling is what magnetized me to this editorial yet, what really has me jittery about burning calories are the activities the model is portraying in these photos.
I think the reason I’ve plateaued is because I’m doing the same routines in overdrive. I need to relax and do something different and fun. I have a skateboard and bike I could hit the skate-park and work up a sweat without over thinking it. I like when my endorphin kick in I turn into the skinny whisperer.
Pain is fat leaving the body! How do you stay motivated in the gym?
I’ve been getting a lot of messages and comments complementing me on my skin. Many want to know if my pics are retouched or am I wearing makeup. I’m too poor and lazy to retouch as well as, my grooming regime is far too hectic and long for me to be adding cosmetics to it. Besides I’m a boy!
Meanwhile, as I share weight-loss secrets with my fat friends I feel I should do the same with my complexion challenged readers.
To every delicious recipe there is a secret ingredient well mines isn’t so secret. I’ve stated in many posts that I’ve never had the best skin so I work hard on maintaining my current complexion. What I’ve added to my facial regime is Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel.
I’ve been using it a little over 4 weeks, thought I was skeptical of the promise to remove dark spots being that I’ve tried many other products to remove my blemishes and old razor nick spots to no prevail this seems to be the answer. So far…
I apply the spot corrector to my face and neck nightly after I do my facial routine before bed and it peels itself overnight.
What I like about this product is that it’s light, don’t leave a mess on my pillow and smells terrific. Also, It’s give my face an even tone and glow. The best part has to be the surprising pore shrinkage.
Granted it do not give a drastic change in dark spot removal but I do see the changes. Note: my dark spots are vanity spots. I don’t think this would be great for someone with serious dark spot problems. However, Garnier do have a version of this in a Spot Correct Kit that includes the daily moisturizer.
The price range from $13.00 to $25.00 depending on the store you purchase it from.
Overall I’m pleased with the smoothness and acne mark reduction.

What’s a skinny person favorite way to catch up? Over a make-believe-lunch.
That’s just what I did the other day catching up with Erin before going out of town. Spring hasn’t fully committed to Kansas nor have I to putting away my sweaters. Though, it was chilly out the sun was in full effect so instead of putting on a jacket I opted of a wool sweater from Express. I’ve had this sweater since 2007 and decided to do a little mixing and matching. That’s the best thing about spring cleaning you find items in your closet you never knew you had.
I personally don’t like mixing brown & black or dressy with casual but, hey that’s what fashion is all about- exploring. I donned my Brooks Brothers velvet slipper with a pair of Levi’s and POLO oxford also, adding my mixture of bracelets topped off by a black banned watch and brown belt. I like this look because in my own little boring mind I felt like I was being a bad boy breaking rules. I know my even my idea of a “bad boy” is kind of boring.
Delusional but skinny.
