Season 1 of this podcast is a re-release of the first season of the original Geek Fitness Health Hacks podcast. When switching hosts, the episodes went off iTunes, and they need to exist again. I hope you get something out of them. Too often, the "health" part of mental health is disregarded. Wellness is not just about your physical health. If any one of us is out of shape physically, we often seek outside help for it. We go to the doctor, we hire a personal trainer, or we pop some...

I hope you get something out of them. I used to weigh 310 pounds. I was unhealthy, pre-diabetic (at least), and completely sedentary. I hated moving, being sweaty, working hard at anything, sports, and pretty much anything that didn’t involve being inside and staring at a screen. Then, 6 months...

I hope you get something out of them. As a new runner, you don’t need much to start. Technically, all you need are feet. But if you want some gear, the most important purchase you can make is (obviously) a decent pair of running shoes. As long as the shoes don’t hurt your feet, you’re fine. It...

I hope you get something out of them. In our house, we eat a lot of sweet potatoes, and this is my favorite sweet potato recipe. It takes maybe 10-12 minutes, and it costs very little money (or effort!) When things are tight, this recipe helps my wife and me get some quick, cheap meals in. -First,...

Battle for Azeroth, the latest World of Warcraft expansion, released this week. Like everyone else who plays the game, I spent many hours sitting in my office chair, melting faces. But I made sure I did it a healthy way, and I just want to take a few minutes to offer some advice on how to make your marathon gaming binges a little less hard on your body. After all, we want to enjoy our time gaming, not feel terrible while doing it. *Where You Can Find Me* twitter.com/professorbeej...

S1E2 - Let's Talk About Anxiety, Depression, and Self-Care

8/7/2018
More
We need to talk about mental health. There's too much of a stigma attached to anxiety, depression, and the personality disorders. If any one of us is out of shape physically, we seek outside help for it. We go to the doctor, hire a personal trainer, or pop some ibuprofen or start eating more veggies. But when we are out of shape mentally, there’s a disconnect. What’s the difference in seeking a counselor’s help for anxiety compared to a personal trainer’s help with obesity? Why not use an...

Basically, I just want you to get to know me, where I am coming from, and why Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart. Sure,...

Launch trailer for The Geek Fitness Podcast. I’m B.J. (call me Beej), and I’m a running-obsessed mega-geek from Alabama. Since 2010, I’ve lost over 150 pounds, and despite falling in love with fitness, I’m still the same Star Wars-loving geek I was. I just love running almost as much as I do Wookiees. I wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider or exposed to cosmic rays. I couldn’t fit on a roller coaster, so I changed how I lived my life. Today I’m 155 pounds lighter, and World of Warcraft and...
