      6 month fitness update

      4 months ago

      So I thought I would give a 6 month update of my fitness, as most of you may know I was 106 pounds in October and have been on the road to recovery ever since. Just thought I would plug my self real quick!

      Today after breakfast

      Tomorrow I start my cut from my bulk, so i'm really excited to see how things start to shape up. If you have any questions about my workout routines, diet, or supplementation feel free to ask. I plan on being decently shredded for RTX this year.

      P.S.
      I'm coming for you @bgibbles Arm Wrestling Match Guardian Vs. Staff 2015

      Breaking the 4th Wall here

      8 months ago

      So you might be curious where I went for a hot minute, pretty much after RTX. Well let me tell you the adventure of this year, I had quite a few ups but a couple big downs. So most of you might know I was very overweight as of last summer: 6' 1" 240 lbs... I didn't feel good at all about my self. SO I started a intense work out regiment and a strict diet. I grew stronger and stronger every day and by Christmas I was 190 lbs and in pretty good shape, I was even training for a triathlon. It became an addiction, the strive for physical perfection. By June I was 155 lbs of 8% body fat, I was everything I wanted to achieve. But it all started to go down hill. It started off with my parents getting a divorce, it made me not want to eat, drink, or socialize. If you don't know this, when you eat a deficite in calories your body catabolize fat, that is how dieting and weight loss works. But when you are the bare bone minimum of functional weight.... well, it starts to eat your muscles and I had a lot for it to eat. As I loss my new Identity I fell into a deeper depression, every day I grew weaker and weaker and my brain grew a fog. Once I hit what I thought was bottom in less then a month I dropped 20 more lbs again and that's when the doctors found my tumor. They did not know what it was at first: If it was cancerous or dangerous but they knew they needed to take it out ASAP. This additional stress and soon to be lack of working out hindered my mind even more. This is where I went to the doctors again, weighing a whopping 120 pounds and was noting but skin and bones. This is right after RTX, about 3 weeks... When I went I was diagnosed with Anorexia, something in a million years I never thought would happen to me, or even guys for that matter. I guess deep down I knew I was suffering but I didn't want to say it. My doctor told me if I kept at my current pace, I would be dead in less then a year. I did not take her seriously, in 2 more weeks I needed to be admitted into a hospital. At this time I was 106 lbs being 6' 1" I was weak and in absolute agony. After extensive therapy I got better and better. I am a a great weight now, a tad over weight but hey its better then being months away from death. I have a solid mussle build and out of my mental fog. Anorexia is just as much a physical sickness as a mental one, my mental wit diapered, my cognition, my humor, and being social was poison to me. But I feel like I have a new life now, and a new take on it. So let 2015 be the year of the Nerdist!

      I guess I have to show pics or it didn't happen:

      Mission Impossible: Possible

      1 year ago

      Well last night if you didn't notice was the RT Michigan Stream, which as per usual was a wild successes! But due to the growing amount of players (and LoL fatigue). We have decided to switch our gaming to an FPS, specifically the Free to Play Team Fortress 2 .
      team_fortress_2_group_photo.jpg.jpg
      With this game we can accommodate up to 50 players with ease and still keeping in the realm of Free and easy to play with low graphical minimums. Im really excited to to switch up the game again because of the popularity of the SWToR stream, plus there is only so many "[Insert person] is the worst at [Insert Politically incorrect name for Champion]" jokes we can make for the over 15 streams we have had.

      I also have to put this out there, if you sign up and say you are going to play YOU BETTER SHOW UP! We hold your spot and sometimes have to turn people away all because your selfish and a liar LIAR I SAY! We also would like if you are going to play to make sure to sign up beforehand just so we can get a tally of who all is coming out. You can signup here until next monday at 9:30 PM. I am really excited to get more people playing and to find even more ways to make fun of Keith in this game, hope to see you there.....or not, I don't really like any of you all that much anyways.

      RT Michigan Stream

      1 year ago

      We had an awesome turn out last night even with the holiday weekend! If you have not watched the stream yet or have not picked it up in a while I highly suggest it! We are getting funnier and quality of stream has risen by 37.26%.

      If you don't know what the stream is you can find it here
      It really is a great time with a great group of gammers, and guess what WE WANT YOU TO JOIN US! If you want to play with us feel free to shoot me a message or comment bellow. We are very accommodating and no skill is required, seriously we let @toothlessgaming play.

      I also want to take a second to see how you guys feel about the game we are playing. Do you like SWTOR or LoL more? Do you want to play something new? Do you have any suggestions? We are open to any current ideas about the stream.

      In closing, I am with child. Now that I have your undivided attention, I am not with child but I do need to tell you something important. Keith is ocupado for the next couple weeks so I will be taking over the stream 100% for a little while. If you have any questions about the stream or just want to E-Make Out with me feel free to direct that towards me for the time being.

      Thanks for saying hi! I've been meaning to join up for a while. Also, because I'm so new I must ask, who exactly are you.....? Lo siento for the ignorance but I'm only familiar with RT from Let's Play and I own 9 seasons of RvB. So please, no crucifixion for living under a rock?

      Again, thanks for saying hi!
