Babe of the Week: Alexandra Daddario

I’ve been a fan of Alexandra Daddario ever since the first Percy Jackson movie. Her eyes and facial beauty were enough to make any movie she appeared in a must-watch in my book. My infatuation for her, however, jumped to epic proportions after she revealed her amazing acting talents in the new HBO series True Detective and she might just be my new favorite actress ever because of this.

Testing My Fat % With The Omron Body Fat Loss Monitor

Ever since moving back to California, the weight has mostly been on a trajectory pulling me towards the 400 lbs mark that I had once gotten to within 14 lbs of reaching. While it was tempting to see if I could make it there, I’ve instead opted to stop the upward trend at 363 lbs, which I peaked at towards the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014. For those keeping score, I came back to CA at 320 lbs, so I packed on an impressive 43 lbs in four months!

Since then, I’ve been on a slow and steady downward move on the scale with my last week’s weigh-in seeing me at 354.4 lbs. However, since I’m weight training fairly hard right now and want to see myself increase my muscle mass while losing fat, I thought it would be wise to invest in the Omron Body Fat Loss Monitor so I could gauge my changes in body fat %.

I’m not sure how accurate this is, but as long as I stick to using this to measure my body composition, it’ll be a good gauge to measure my progress going forward in addition to the scale, tape measurements and mirror tests. Right now, I currently have a body fat % of 33.6, which leaves me with 119 lbs of body fat and approximately 235 lbs of lean muscle mass.

It’s also worth noting, that while I’m no where near my all-time highs, I’ve been doing great in the gym and just today worked out with 275 lbs on the bench for sets of 6 reps each, which is the best I’ve done in over a decade. I’m also getting to the point where most of the non-free weight machines at the gym won’t be usable when I’m doing a low-rep cycle. #BUFF!

This Is My Gun

This is my gun. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my gun is useless. Without my gun, I am useless. I must fire my gun true. I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. My gun and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.

PS – I haven’t purchased it, yet. But this will be my first handgun purchase when I get around to buying one.

Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept

I believe I just found a new car to add to my wish list for when I make my first billion — the Audi Nanuk Quattro. It was shown last month at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and I love that it looks like the offspring you’d get if an Italian sports car made sweet lovin’ with some American Muscle. Plus, the 0-60 acceleration in less than 3.8 seconds and top speed of 189 MPH will help greatly when I’m stuck in bumper-to-bumper Bay Area traffic.

Babe of the Week: Beyonce Knowles

What can I really say about Beyonce that hasn’t already been said a million times? She’s Queen B. She decided to do a surprise launch of her last album and it practically broke Twitter and the entirety of the Interwebs. She’s one of the sexiest and most talented vocalists alive and I wouldn’t hesitate hitting it even though I know who she’s with.

Babe of the Week: Scarlett Johansson

Sexiest woman alive, world’s hottest actress, woman that I’ve visualized my dearest member spending many days and nights in her steam room — all things that can be attributed to the sexy and sultry Scarlett Johansson. I shan’t say more. Enjoy!

Babe of the Week: Cassidy Wolf

As soon as I first witnessed the transcendent allure of Cassidy Wolf, I was 100% certain that she was going to make the move from being simply Miss California Teen USA 2013 to Miss Teen USA 2013. Not only does she personify the words beauty and perfection, but she also exudes a personality that would make her a dream candidate to be any man’s ball & chain until death do them part.
