Geek Fitness Health Hacks - Exercise, Weight Loss, and Mindfulness for Geeks and Nerds
About This Show
I’m a runner, a fitness junkie, a nutrition nut, but most importantly--I’m a geek. I used to be overweight, unhealthy, and lazy. I lost 155 pounds, and along the way, I figured out how to lead a healthy, active lifestyle without giving up a single bit of the geekery that makes me who I am. Every episode of Geek Fitness Health Hacks is packed with strategies that I personally used to overhaul my life, and I want to share them with you so that you can be as happy and healthy as I am, all while making sure that you keep geeking out for the long haul.
I have severe anxiety, and even though I I practice meditation, study Buddhism and am all about mindfulness, I still take medication to keep my panic attacks under control. Mental health is every bit as important as physical health, and I don’t want that to get shoved under the rug. I don’t want there to be a stigma about it, so I discuss strategies for self-care and dealing with panic and stress in your life. Additionally, I truly believe that compassion and kindness are essential to being healthy and happy, so this is a very positive show.
I want to motivate you into living a good life and being happy, not scare you into one. So are you ready to press start, player one?

036 - Geektitude and prepping for #yogaeverydamnday
Howdy do, geeks! It's Friday, the world is beautiful, springtime is here, and we are all upright and breathing. What's there not to be happy about? Geektitude! We added a new podcast to the network this week, Geektitude! Our take on a network is a little different than others, but we think that's awesome. Instead of putting together a monetized group of disparate shows, we are handpicking people and shows that fit with the original idea Void and I had when we started Geek to Geek: being positive and geeky and friendly. And Joe Hogan does that. With about 70 episodes in his backlog, Joe is a fantastic dude, and you should totally go subscribe to his show. You won't be sorry. Here's the link to the episode I did with him a few weeks ago, too. It's a good place to start, I think. trimming up, slimming down I've been heading back to the gym, and like I mentioned on last week's podcast, I have been working on meditating and doing yoga actively, too. It's helped. Between eating better (outside of the delicious Mexican food I just had for lunch) and making fitness a priority again, I've lost a few pounds and already trimmed up enough to wear a few of my shirts I couldn't quite fit into last month. speaking of shirts! I'm trying something out with Teespring and put up some Geek Fitness t-shirts you can buy. They're pretty cheap and 10% of it all goes to Child's Play, a super awesome charity. So head over, buy a shirt, and be on the lookout for more designs in the future. Because merch is cool, I'm cool, so my merch is extra cool. That's how it works, right? #yogaeverydamnday starts tomorrow I have a month-long challenge that I'm setting up for myself, and it starts tomorrow. One of my favorite hashtags has been #yogaeverydamnday, and I figure April's a good place to start. It makes me feel better physically and mentally, it's low-impact so my old-man body won't shatter like Hollywood sugar-glass, and it's fun to do. I'm not sure if I will be doing it in the morning, during the day, or at night, but my goal is to do at least 10 minutes of yoga every day until May 1. That's not a ha
