Here’s a picture of my mother and brother. As you can see, my mother is a different complexion than either of us. I remember feeling shame when my mother would pick us up from school and the kids would ask if that was our babysitter because we looked so different. It wasn’t until later that I became aware of all she had given us: our lips, our hair, our eyes and most importantly, our sense of self. I am immensely proud to be the son of my #pinay mother and I look forward to one day sharing our heritage with my children.

#45DaysLater… I’m doing pretty good with my diet and exercise and the only cheating I’ve been doing is eating too much carbs but I’ve kept my caloric intake down below my daily max everyday for 45 days straight. I gained weight this week but I think that’s because I increased the weight resistance last week by 10lbs so I’m back up to 142lbs but I don’t mind. I don’t expect to look like Fisher instantly lol! My body fat percentage is down to 13.8%… 👍🏽 #update #selfie #afterworkout #fitness #deardiary #gay #pinoy #filipino #weight #exercise #me (at Springfield Town Center)
