In between brush strokes I was cooking most of the evening. I had no idea raw pinto beans took so long to cook! Holy cow. Meals are prepped though and we are set for the weak #chickenandbeans #mealprep #portioncontrol #readysetgo #mondaymealprep #chicken #pintobeans #brownrice #beardedman #beard #bear #batman #goals #almostbedtime

Started my day with the sunrise, got some time in with my boyfriend and kids while enjoying my coffee and I even painted a little before getting ready for work. I wish every morning could be like today’s. On a side note I weighed in and I may have gained a pound 208 to 209 BUT my body fat % is down to 19.5% from 22 and my body muscle weight is up to 160 from 152. This is the progress made in 3 weeks and proof weight is just a number.. #progress #sunrise #sunday #cofeetime #bearonamission #gayandproud #beardedhomo #musclegains #bodygoals #amanwithaplan

The one I just finished is the same size as the blue back ground. It’s just elevated so the side paint doesn’t get on anything while it dries. #smallart #canvaspainting #muscle #bears #maleform #torso #bodyart #oil #oilpainting #burlymen #harness #leather #painting #bearweek365

HIV and AIDS suppprt and research is something our family holds a special place for in our hearts. I miss my uncle Kieth and know he would be SO PROUD to be a part of the world today instead of the darkness and fear he was lost to in the Late 80s.
