I go through the trouble of washing and drying my girlfriend’s laundry yesterday because I wanna do something nice. My reward is her pelting me in the head with her drawers and shorts cause I get to sleep in today. This is the true sign of a mature adult relationship. This is #love. #relationships #adultchoices #adultlife #silliness #thecatisattackingmerightnow (at CD Lounge)

Driving through Woodstock, seeing all the landmarks I used to see on my drive to Delafield. Ah, #memories… Also, it’s frickin’ cold as hell! Who turned off the thermostat!? #winterhascome #snowday #goddamncold #wisconsinbound #bored (at Porkies)
The McHaggis clan ‘Winter Wonder Land’ Christmas tree! Tis the season, y’all! Merry Christmas and happy holidays! #merrychristmas #happyholidays #winterwonderland #winterhascome #silverandblue #lovethelittlethingsinlife (at CD Lounge)
Normally, I wouldn’t post pictures of myself shirtless due to my complete disdain of people who post the. For validation, and because I’m rather self-conscious about my weight and body image.
Let me back the train up a bit. In 2010, I lost over 50 pounds, wore a size 34 in jeans, and weighed 187, something I hadn’t weighed since middle school. After that summer, my weight slowly crept back up to 220, then 230. I wasn’t exactly watching what I ate or leading a healthy lifestyle, became unemployed and depressed, and before I knew it, I was tipping the scales at 275.
Then, in September, I got employed again. Started drinking less, eating healthier/smaller proportions, riding my bike to work. Now, I’m weighing in at almost 240. I’m wearing size 38 slim straight cut jeans, something I’ve never been able to do. My gut is smaller, the love handles are shrinking, and for the first time in a very long time, I feel better about myself. I feel attractive, like I actually deserve my girlfriend. All in all, I’m happier, and that makes me feel awesome.
Sorry for the slight rant/self-indulgent self-improvement post. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
My seat mate got off. Now, I have two seats to myself. The two old ladies sitting across from me seem mad that I haven’t shared my #irish. Either that or they hate the #tattoos. Can’t please everyone! Knock it off, mean muggers! #Jameson #musicvideos #dropkickmurphys #thedarkness #imbored #blackoutwednesday #amtrak (at The Haughty Potty In The Tower)
Feeling patriotic right now. Just finished watching #CaptainAmerica, now just chilling and watching #Avengers. Far be it from me to have an ego, but I’m pretty sure that if I lost a little bit more weight, I’d be able to cosplay an awesome Captain America. Ho hum! #bored #hungry #gettingreadytorock #PrizePosse #partyhard (at CD Lounge)
