My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer

My Dad passed away last month from prostate cancer. He was the reason I started participating in Movember 5 years ago, and why this annual campaign has become an important part of my charitable outreach. I'll be growing my moustache, playing some tunes, and sharing stories about health and wellness this month. My efforts will be dedicated to him, and all the men suffering from cancer and mental illness.

Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Help me stop men dying too young.

Movember Day 30+1.
Feeling grateful for all the people who donated, followed my posts and photos, read my little shares on wellness and did their part to promote Movember and men's health in their families and communities this past month.

I started doing a morning walk yesterday because I was struggling to get one in between school ending and dinnertime. I think it's going to be a good boost to my physical, mental and spiritual wellness.

Blessings on you all, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas!

Movember- Day 16.
The mo' is not as red as it used to be. Age is becoming a factor, likely stress too. These last 20 months of pandemic life have been difficult for everyone.

Mental health struggles manifest into physical health struggles. It can be hard to find motivation for things like basic hygiene, a healthy diet and scheduling exercise into your day. Making regular appointments to visit your doctor or dentist may seem impossible.

Do one extra thing for your health today.
It could be going for that walk at lunchtime, flossing your teeth before bed, or booking an appt. with your doctor.

That one thing could make a big difference.

Movember- Day 8.
The mo' is starting to take shape. I've been busy at Dad's sorting, organizing and packing his belongings. Smiles and tears... which was the name of a CD Dad made of himself playing tenor sax some years ago. He wanted to make another one, but with me and my sister as well. We ran out of time.

So, we must make the most out of each day and move on the things that are important, like time with family and friends, sharing our talents, and taking care of our health.

WE BLASTED THAT GOAL TO PIECES!!!
A big thank you to everyone for your contributions so far. I'll be sending out individual words of thanks in the coming week.
Also, a big thanks to those who were able to tune in to the virtual concert on IG Live, Saturday.

Keep encouraging the men in your lives to take care of their physical, mental and spiritual health. It's all connected together. Especially in these pandemic times, we have to take care of ourselves. Surround yourself with people who will do that and put some activities in the schedule that aren't work (exercise, leisure, music, games, good chats and laughs with family and friends).

Day 25: Moustache is pretty much back to normal, and you'll notice I started growing the beard back (see last post for reasons).

Been thinking about how thankful I am to have friends and family in my life who value exercise. It's something I struggle with making time for, even though I loved playing outside and doing lots of sports as a young Joe.

Playing with my daughter helps me get some exercise in, but, realistically, I would like to do more. That, coupled with healthy eating, would help me shed some extra pounds I'm carrying around, and help me feel healthier. I encourage y'all to think about your own exercise/eating habits, too!

Day 18: Movember has been in full effect for 18 days, and I'm pleased to say the moustache is levelling up. The upper lip's a little warmer, and now the sides are starting to come in. I suspect that, in a week's time, I'll be ready to start growing back the goatee area too. Reason being, our little baby boy's getting baptized in December so I have to look presentable for the pictures!

Your donations have been a highlight of my day, and I know they are going to do a lot of good for the guys struggling with their physical and mental health. Keep it going!

Day 12:
The moustache is filling out. I'm going to grow the sides more so I have connectors for the beard when I need them!

Thinking of all the guys out there who are living their lives but afraid to get a checkup, or to go to their next doctor's appointment, or to hear the news from their doctor, or showing up for their next dose of chemo or other treatments.

The brotherhood is real. We've got your back and every year, we're figuring this out to give men with these cancers more time to live life to the fullest. Proud to be a small part in the cause.

Day 6: People have been noticing the moustache is growing in. I've noticed I need a new electric razor cause mine's too dull to really clean up the rest of my face. Pretty scratchy!

On a men's health note: thinking about the importance of rest. This can be getting a good sleep (7 hrs min.) or taking time to rest the mind by listening to music, going for a walk, taking time to read or pray or work on a puzzle. These are good things for mental health. Lately, I've been trying to read more and have a novel going at all times. Nice break from reading on a screen!

Joe, there was a time, in a decade far, far, before when I would have given you a good run but that was then and this is now. Clearly the red is superior. I hope to post a photo tomorrow sometime. This was fun!! Dad
