Last week when I was at the gym I noticed some of the scrawnier guys looking at me as I went through my sets. I recognized that look -- it's the exact same one scrawny-me gave to beefier guys a decade ago. The "how the hell do I get there?" look. Never in a million years did I think I'd be on the other side of that.

I'm increasingly happy with who I am and what I look like while acknowledging I'll never achieve my dream body. For me, the mental work is the hardest by far.

Everybody's fitness journey is different. Enjoy yours and most importantly: be good to yourself. You are awesome as-is and we are ALWAYS our worst critic.

Tonight we attended a friend's birthday Sparkle Party. Such a fabulously fun time!! It's a little hard to tell, but I'm covered in silver glitter and Daniel is covered in gold glitter. We'll be finding glitter for weeks, and it was so totally worth it!

Date night in West Seattle. Dinner at Marination and now off to Alki Beach!

20 years of me in passport photos. Holy crap I looked young in the first one. The blue shirts were all coincidence, I swear.

The only thing Howell Beach on Lake Washington has over Nova Mar Bella Beach in Barcelona on the Mediterranean is the gays. So that's something.

Our friend Jeny took this photo of Daniel and I at Trans Pride a week ago. We were just chatting & enjoying each other's company amidst our wonderful community. I love that Jeny captured this casual and affectionate moment unbeknownst to us.

This is love to me. It isn't flashy, but it's wondrous and real.
