Day 0: Prelude

Hello,


If you're reading this, I want to say thank you. Whether you followed me from my very first blog, The Built Man (shoutout to Tumblr), to Millennial Aspirations, to this site now.


It's been a fun journey so far. I'm happy that I'm entering into a new phase in life.


The last 7-8 months of life have taught me a couple of lessons:

  • The importance of rests

  • Doing the right thing at the wrong time

  • The consequences of a lack of self-discipline

Today, right now, marks a new beginning. Nothing special has happened, no defining event has occurred.


I am simply taking my life in the direction of my choosing. I hope to write about and film it each and every day.


A good way to get the ball rolling is to track my journey in exercising and weight loss. A couple of weeks ago, I was 170 lbs. I'm now down to 162.


My target goal is 155. I hope to reach that by the end of February, then begin bulking to put on muscle and achieve 10% body fat (any lower would be unhealthy for my frame).


I'm excited. I can't wait to see what I become.

And just like that, I had another founder reach out to me (that I previously wrote on) saying their team needs a story. (They just got acquired!) Unfortunately, I had to turn them down. I have to say
