Hey folks, it’s Mick. I am firing up my fitness blog again because I have a new fitness goal that I am really excited about, but it’s going to take a LOT of personal focus, attention and support from you awesome people! As some of you know, I create a Lot of Content about Blizzard Entertainment Properties (see Stormcast and The Starting Zone). For the past two years I have attended Blizzard’s awesome Fan Appreciation convention, Blizzcon! In 2014, I had an incredibly awesome time! Every hour was packed. I was able to hug old friends and meet a ton of new friends and members of our community!
But it was also physically exhausting. I walked into Blizzcon at 300lbs. I was down several pounds from using DDP Yoga, but still 300 lbs! Yoga helped me in incredible ways as prep for the convention, but I have slacked off since then, and not met ANY fitness goals I set for myself this year! This past week I confirmed my attendance to this Convention and as I went through things I wanted to change in regards to the content I produce, I realized something. I just don’t want to make different content, I want to be a different person. I want to be lighter, by a lot! Just so I feel better and I can keep up my energy levels to match all the awesome members of our SPAZBOT Community!
My Goals are pretty simple. I want to be down to between 250lbs and 260lbs by Blizzcon! Not my End Goal, but a GREAT start, and that means losing roughly 50lbs! CAN I DO IT?!? I believe I can!
I have already started the Simple Green Smoothie Challenge this Week, and shifted my diet back over to PALEO! Weighs and Measurments are going to be coming on a weekly basis! I’ll be using a combo of DDP Yoga and some Crossfit style work outs as well as Cardio all mixed into a Blender of Work Out Goodness! Look for the following #Hastags on Twitter that will document the experience!
- #BlizzconSlimDown – General Hashtag for this fun project!
- #DrivewayWorkout – Completion of my ‘Drive Way Gym’ Workouts!
- #DDPYoga – Completion of DDP Yoga Work Outs
- #StatsDay – Indication of when I’ve posted Progress Reports
I know a LOT of you fans going to the convention want to be lighter as well! So, feel free to join in on the fun! Leave comments on what you’re goals would be!If you want to join in the fun, GREAT! Send me an Email and I’ll send you an invitation to a FACEBOOK Group, I’ll be kicking off to use as a Private Forum for participants to encourage and support each other!
