And then there were 2 or 5, no wait blue! Aaaaarghghh! Anxiety and ADHD

I'm thinking about starting to vlog...again. I sort of did it before but I didn't really commit. It was more a part of my whole "bid" to get them to put me into a Silver Surfer movie, which I still think that they should do.

I mean, come on, I'd be perfect! The baldness is from an app BTW.

I think that the new topic that I'm going to be covering will be a little easier for me to stick to, although, I'm not sure that anyone will care.

About five years ago, I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Frankly, this made so much sense that it was insane that I never sought out this diagnosis before. I can go into more details to qualify that statement but it would be its own post or vlog. 
Since then, I've been on sertraline hydrochloride (generic Zoloft) and it has changed so much. I'm definitely one of those people for whom these medications work. The change was small at first, these serotonin reuptake inhibitors take some time to really take…

I'm back to the fitness thing!

This is just an FYI. I'm back to doing the fitness thing with a #GeekFit #DadFit theme. If you have a second, you could click on the widget over there to subscribe.

It's a little all over the place but I'm just having fun with it for now.

I'm trying to figure out how to be healthier without trying too hard so I'll be posting things that I learn about healthy eating, mindfulness, and exercise (there'll be some Silver Surfer stuff, and toys too!).


I've been toying around with the idea or doing a comic strip.

It's mostly to scratch the itch to create something and to have that something show up a little bit more quickly than other things.

Smoothie Morning

Finally made myself a smoothie again on Wednesday morning for breakfast. I'll include the rough recipe below. I think that it's pretty healthy and there's no reason that you couldn't substitute one thing for another since I'm not a dietician.

I primarily used Berries and Greek Yogurt. I think that you would be hard pressed to mess that up. The funny thing is that the instigator for me finally breaking out my little personal blender again was because I had tried to buy Carly an avocado. It's one of the tastiest things that she can eat on this diet but she has trouble ever finding one at the right stage of ripeness.

Anyways, the answer to the question that you are all screaming at your computer right now is that this avocado looked good--until Carly shoved her fork into it. She then mentioned that it was probably okay to put into a smoothie but that didn't sound good to her at the time and she went to toss the whole thing in the garbage.

That's when I ste…

Come to my senses

Okay. So...I think that I've finally come to my senses a little bit. It was definitely a little crazy to decide that I was going to have any chance at landing the part of the Silver Surfer in his inevitable appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; especially if they just do mostly CGI or use a super skinny guy in a suit like last time. That surfer was a little off to me though...

Anyways, I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing but I think that I'm going to put that goal on the backburner that nobody ever sees. Maybe if I can keep up with this I'll at least get a cameo.

So, this is going to be a My Fitness Journey thing. I'm sort of enjoying it for now. But I'm not totally sure what I'm going to do in the winter months when it starts to get cold.

Vlog part 3


Workout successes this week

So, I've been trying a new fitness plan in order to increase the odds that Marvel will cast me as the Sentinal of the Skyways! (That's the Silver Surfer for you comic book laymen...laypersons)

I'm really just trying to work out for 30 minutes per day for five days a week along with an increase in the amount of broccoli and other vegetables in my diet.

Like everyone, I've been hearing about the benefits of 30 minutes of "strenuous" exercise per day or five days a week or three times per week for as long as I can remember. But other than, those treadmill or Bowflex commercials, I didn't hear any plans on how to work out for 30 minutes. So, like many, this lead me to running a lot; because that was something that you could time easily. Whenever I did go to the gym, it was inconsistent and I would usually end up moving from machine to machine for 45 - 90 minutes.

On Saturday, I did three 10 minute circuits of random exercises using things that I had around th…
