Alright so this blog will basically be me opening up to my readers.
Uhh, how to start..
Okay I'll jump right into it. I'm unhealthy. I'm not sick or anything, just.. Unhealthy. I am admittedly obese, and very out of shape. What do you expect from someone who spends their life behind a computer? Herpderp antisocial fat kids.
Well I'm not so much antisocial as I am afraid of the world. All of my friends in real life do drugs, and party. Just about everyone around here does. I tend to try and steer away from that, which ends up keeping me inside all the time. I do plan on getting a car here soon though, so I'll be out and about haha.
Okay back to the point. Obesity. I am fat, and I'm more or less done with it. Starting at this very moment I'm going to begin working toward a more healthy life. TBH something super simple triggered this. I was talking to my friend Austin, and he was talking about eating right and getting his 6 pack to show. I was actually surprised, because I'd seen pictures of him and he's buff, no joke.
Anyway, I decided, you know what? I'm going to do that too. I'm going to start eating right, and working out as much as I can (At a healthy basis, of course). The only thing that's really been standing in my way between me and doing that however, is poverty. Not a lot of people know, but I do live in some extremely harsh financial conditions. If you watch the Livestream a lot, you may notice I eat peanut butter jelly sammiches a lot. Well, that's because it's all my household ever has. It's cheap. A loaf of bread, peanut butter, and jelly. $10 a week feeds me and my mom. Well, as cheap as it may be, it's not healthy in the least bit. Especially considering on the side, it's always Pizza Hut or Burger King. Another factor is my drinking habbits. No, not alchohol. I mean soda. Literally all I drink is Pepsi. I'm dropping it. I look to my right shoulder right now, and two empty 2 liters are standing there after I sucked them down. I'll be replacing that with water.
I know you guys are probably like "Why the fuck do we care?". You don't need to care. I just feel like the only thing that could keep me motivated through this is other people knowing I'm doing it, and the fact that they're curious as to whether I'll be able to do it, or fail.
Let's go a tiny bit more in depth with the poverty. As a LOT of you know, GoldenTotProductions' youtube channel is my job. I am a YouTube partner and currently I rely on the income it brings in. YouTube partners or adsense hosts get paid any time someone views, or clicks on the hosts ad content. Partners earn a share of the income brought in by that click or view. Anyway, my mom also had 2 jobs. She works as a server at a New York themed resteraunt, and she worked a little during the week at Burger King. Burger King paid the rent right on the spot most of the time, and the main job payed most of the bills. Well, she recently lost her job at Burger King and I have to fill the cap. So now, using YouTube, I'm supporting myself as well as half of my mother's needs. I don't mind considering she's housed and taken care of me for the last 20 years, but it dents my plans.
Eating right costs a little money. A little money I don't have. Basically what I'm going to do is be more responsible with my money and every bit I don't spend on bills, will go towards a healthy diet. I'm planning fruits and vegies for about 90%, and maybe sometimes a cooked dinner with the mom. I don't know about you guys but I freaking LOVE fruits. I could eat them all day, and the beauty of it is that you can with almost no penalty to your weight loss goals.
Anyway, yea. I'm almost considering doing a video thing about it for extra motivation, but good lord I'm camera shy. LOL.
You guys are more than welcome to throw me suggestions. Work out tips for a fat kid that has no energy, food suggestions, and so on.
Sorry for the extremely long entry, I just wanted to get it off my chest. :)
