The Fat Slob’s Sojourn to Faster, Stronger, Better
What’s up guys.
Or should I say Google robots, as probably very few people are reading this blog at this point. I’m pretty much sure 0 people are. (that is until YOU comment!)
I came up with the idea of BodySnaps to be an affiliate site to sell various products for me, since my dream is to be an internet marketer (and a somewhat accomplished fiction writer).
But then this site literally sat here doing nothing forever.
I just wasn’t “into” writing about something I didn’t really do myself.
I know a ton of affiliate marketers out there that sell things they have never used, touched, or in some weird cases… smell.
I don’t like that.
I don’t think it provides very high quality value for the end user, something I’ve always worried about with anything I have ever promoted.
So this site languished with a few half hearted attempts at writing content.
And I Became a Fatter Slob
Is this poop in my gut or just fat out of control? (Gross!)
I have led a lethargic life of reading fiction, business books, and eating incredibly unhealthy stuff. Imbibing chemical cocktail Rockstars and downing entire pizzas in a single gallant sitting while playing video games on my couch.
I am pretty tired of it – now Christmas is here again and I remember this website.
Maybe I can make a new go at it. Do something meaningful on here that will help others help themselves – while also getting rid of my *ahem* considerably poor habits.
My Plan to Kill the Fat Slob and to Rise Out of the Ashes
I know, right?
I’m literally dying here.
Okay. Sorry for the internet catch phrases there.
My plan is pretty simple right now. I recognize many things that are inherent to promoting my bad and unsuccessful lifestyle (this list affects me in tons of areas in my life, not just fitness)
My Bad Joo-Joo Habits:
I am literally super, duper, duper lazy. I rarely do anything, except for sleeping. I’m in love with sleeping.
The awake version of sleeping.
I find myself doing this all the time. There is nothing wrong with dreaming, having goals and ambitions. But there is something wrong with this when you do it so often you’re never “in the now”
3. Bad Hygiene Habits
I use to smoke cigarettes (which now thanks to the return of my smelling ability, I cannot stand the smell of them), I’m horrible with keeping up showering and brushing my teeth and often even forget to wear deodorant.
Lol I’m a regular slob, and fat to boot!
I’ve never been able to commit to anything in my life – except for dreaming, sleeping and daydreaming.
I mean, I still am a fiction writer too and still write as I always have but rarely finish any of my stories.
This obviously is a clue to my as of late inability to get into shape and something that really needs to change. If I can change this about me, I feel almost every other area in my life will be vastly improved.
Not to mention my personal happiness!
As you can see… there are quite a few bad apples here in my daily life that are limiting me.
So how am I going to end this?
By making losing weight and getting in shape as easy as possible.
My Plan for Hacking My Health…
Alright, so in order for me to help circumvent and defeat my bad habits… I must get a good battle plan going to actually accomplish my goals. So far, I have come up with a few ideas:
1. Home Gym – Screw Memberships!
I never have liked going to the gym. Especially living in Alaska.
I have to get out of my hermit house, into my rear wheel drive car, brave the winters, to go work out surrounded by people (I’m an introvert) and then do it again to get back home.
Doing this 5-7 days a week isn’t going to happen for me, just the 10 minute commute alone is too much for me haha.
By having a home gym, I’ll have it right there for me to use, plus over time I’ll save money not having to pay a monthly membership fee.
2. Start Cooking More:
As an again recently single bachelor, I have fallen into the trap of eating shit microwave food.
I’m going learn how to cook some sweet low carb foods for my lifestyle change and hopefully my creations will taste awesome.
Learning to cook is something I’ve always wanted to do.It’ll be hard since I’m lazy, but least it’ll help destroying both that and the non-committal bad habits.
3. Do a 90 Day Challenge
From my experience, 90 days is a magical number.
You do something for 90 days consistently and you are a new person.
I believe we are constantly a reflection of our past selves, and 90 days is a good chunk of time to create a past self we can be more proud of.
So my goal is to do a 90 day fitness challenge (I already got one lined up so don’t get up in a fuss to email me about your great deal)
4. Use shake meal replacements
I think this will be a good thing for me to do, since I am lazy and these shakes will be stupid easy to make.
Each one probably take maybe 2 minutes?
That’s quicker than making my chocolate cocoa cereal. Also, I have tons of friends who’ve had success with this method so I know it works.
5. Video Blog Daily
I’m going start doing daily videos of my journey, or just my thoughts on health as a whole as I learn more.
I think Vlogging daily would help me achieve two goals at once:
- Keep me consistent.
- Help me create a brand online
that I can help accomplish my other goal of being a successful internet marketer who sells things from high value content instead of gross affiliate spam.
6. Hopefully get readers to give me sweet, sweet social validation
I’m a creature in love with other people’s reactions.
So I am hoping that eventually I’ll have more people than just Google robots running around my website seeing if anything is worth ranking for.
If I provide high value content though, I have faith that I will build a readership that will help keep me motivated.
Pretty simple stuff, right?
I certainly think so.
My Personal Fitness Goals
Right now I don’t have the specificity down – which I will since I believe goals are just dreams without detailed specifics and deadlines – but I can list a few of my “top of mind” goals with both this website and my personal health.
- Lose 40 Lbs: Right now I weigh in at a whopping 230 at 5’11″. Way too much stuffing in this body.
- Run a mile in 5 minutes: Can barely do it within 13-14.
- Run a marathon: My brother use to do a marathon that involved climbing a mountain. So, suffice to say always wanted to do a marathon. Minus the mountain part – screw mountains!
- Have way more energy: I want to kick my 10-15 hour sleeping habits and do MORE in my life versus daydreaming my days away. I got way too much shit to accomplish (a successful online business, writing books, traveling etc.)
- Eventually get a 4-pack: I had this ex girlfriend who told me every boyfriend she dumped gained like a 100 lbs. So this would be funny if I got a 4 pack with some rock hard abs. Haha. Don’t worry, that isn’t my prime motivation, I seriously have always wanted abs versus my beer keg gut.
And that is it!
