Rachel’s bridal session

Last Saturday I shot Rachel and Kevin’s wedding. Both are friends from a previous job so we had a blast. Here’s a few of my favorites from Rachel’s bridal session. Rachel, her mom and grandma met me at the capitol building here in Austin back in April. We ended up shooting all over the city and had a blast.

One of my favorites (not because it’s technically great, but because of content) is the one below with the two white dogs. We were walking back into the capitol building and this lady was sitting there with the two beautiful white dogs. I figured that would look great with a beautiful bride in a white dress.

You can view the rest of the set here.

Diet Coke is For Fat People update

So at the beginning of the year I started the Diet Coke is For Fat People Challenge.

After seven weeks or so it trailed off, never to be heard from again. Until now. What happened? I got busy and I got fatter. Lately, however, I’ve been a little more determined to lose weight and get into shape. A few things I’m doing differently:

Swimming at least once a day. About to up it to twice a day if I can find the time.

Eating breakfast. Usually toast and water, but something to get my body going.

I need to get back on the treadmill. In a few months it’ll be too cold to swim and I don’t want to lose a bunch of weight only to gain it right back in the winter.

I signed up for Gyminee. You can see my profile here. I tend to keep up with things if I have a nice organized way to keep track of it all.

I broke my goals down into smaller pieces. My ultimate goal is to lose 50 pounds. That’s a big and quite frankly discouraging number. So I broke it down. My first goal is to lose 18 pounds and arrive at the still-overweight 230. From there it will be 215 then 200.

I’m doing better about stopping the mouth machine when I’m full. I don’t have to clean my plate. I’ve also cut back to a maximum of one coke/sweet tea a day. Usually it’s none but if I’m eating out I’ll have something nice an sugary.

I’m doing a little better and overall feel better after just a few weeks of swimming and eating better. I was inspired by a couple of posts Perry did here and here.

Drinking Diet Coke? Offended? I don’t really think it’s for fat people.
