Today I shaved my head. 😮

Back in June of this year after getting caught in a down pour at Disney, Tiff (my wife) noticed that I had a small bald patch in my head.

It bothered me, but unless my hair was soaked it wasn’t noticeable at all. Sadly it didn’t stay like that the patch continued to grow until it reached my hair line which made it annoying to try to cover up. My old hair style too me less then 30 seconds each morning to style, now I was spending a few minutes just trying to cover up the spot in hopes that it would eventually grow back.

I did see a doctor about it who confirmed it was Alopecia areata, She also told me that my hair follicles were still there and that it should grow back. Then she  gave me cortisone injections in my head (ouch), and I get to go back at the end of the month and do it again. However in the mean time I am done trying to cover it up so after Church this morning I went ahead and shaved it all off.

So for now this is the new me. I don’t mind it. I’ll probably be wearing a lot of hats because my head is really cold already and it 70 degrees right now. So this winter is gonna be fun!

 

One good thing about it all is I was able to have a mohawk again for a couple minutes.

Handwriting a blog

So I’ve decided to take a different approach to blogging. Rather than type it out on a computer. I’m using an app called Nebo and writing it on my iPad with my Apple Pencil.

My handwriting is pretty horrid and after just a few sentences my hand is already starting to ache a little, but I still think it will be a fun experiment.

So what I plan to do is use Nebo to write it out, then use it’s awesome export to text feature to post to my blog. I will also be adding an image of the notes I wrote in the app so you can see just how awful my handwriting truely is and see if it improves over time. I haven’t written with a pen and paper (so to say) on a regular basis since High School which was 17 years ago! 👴🏻

I’ve been wanting to create a semi-steady blog for a while so hopefully this project will help me with that.

Also feel free to tell me I’m crazy.

I’M OVERWEIGHT!!!

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a long time, but today I finally can.

This morning I weighted in just under 230lbs I am 6’1.5″ tall(yes I am counting every possible half inch right now). So, by most BMI calculators that means I have finally broken out of the obese category and it feels amazing!

I’m not done yet, I still have another 30lbs or so to get into a the “normal” weight range. And in the next few weeks or less I will be posting another huge milestone, one that I am proud and not proud of at the same time. I’ll go more into details on my weight loss process once I hit that milestone.
