spring training is officially over. it was a productive offseason filled with improvements. now i have 6 or so weeks to fine tune my craft and be ready for the start of training camp in late july. right before leaving the facility on the last day of veteran mini-camp i negotiated a new report weight, 215 lbs, but with a stipulation. I must be 4.5 percent body fat. I can do it but it will be a challenge, making this summer a focused and fun one to look forward too.

too keep from losing my balance i plan on sprinkling in a few mini vacations, the first one being a short trip to costa rica coming up soon. any other vacations will be weekend trips within the states. these next 6 weeks are crucial to my training camp success.

aside from football, i have been steadily embracing my creative side through photography. it has become one of the other activities that consistently puts me in a flow state. its incredible. im going to start posting my photography on here as periodically as possible. i encourage anyone that may read this to find an outlet outside of work that can help you reach your flow. that feeling is unmatched.
