The Man At Work

For Christmas, I gave my girlfriend a year’s membership to Gold’s Gym where I work out, so we could go together. Couples that work out together stay together!

I was contracted by a marketing firm here in Boise, MMG, to be one of the photographers for Gold’s annual 12-week fitness challenge, where participants agree to be a part of the "biggest loser" type thing for promotional efforts. You know, the whole, "I was 274 pounds, and thanks to Gold’s Gym, look at me now!"

My birthday was yesterday, and after a nice family dinner, Megan and I went out with her roommate to celebrate. The highball of Jager was not a good idea.
