So, I made promises to give you an article weekly, and it hasn't happened lately. Reasons being: there's a new addition in my household. Be on the lookout for a new Evolution of a Gamer article celebrating the birth of my new son! I plugged out a few articles on here, but exercise has been low on the totem pole. Got plenty of exercise on a whim to replace the carpet in the house we're trying to sell with laminate hardwood flooring, though.
The gaming exercise routine is still very, VERY helpful. I have the dedication for it, and I'm still dropping pounds. I wonder about those less dedicated though. As I welcome new individuals via two other GoozerNation staff to the Fit to Game column, I wonder: one is doing straight gym exercises, whilst another joins me in the gaming fit craze.
I used to have a gym membership. It was handy, because when I went to the gym, there were no distractions. When home, I see EA Sports Active 2 sitting right beside Portal 2....and nobody to tell me otherwise, until I write up here. Something most gamers don't even have.
So still making a note here: huge success, getting ready to celebrate another 10 down: Started at 260, getting ready to hit the 230s. Not as impressive as Phil's, but I can say that he made quite a few more drastic changes in diet than I even have able to make. This isn't a competition, though, but a healthy rivalry to encourage each other, so good on ya, man!
To the pounds I have left: I just want you gone.
