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 Mountain Dew have given way to water bottles, tempo runs, and World of Warcraft.

I don't have all the answers, but I'll share what I've learned.
S1E3 - How to Be Healthy During a Gaming Binge (Like the Battle for Azeroth Launch)
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 geekfitness.net anchor.fm/geekfitness *Geek to Geek Community* Discord: discord.geektogeekcast.com Slack: slack.geektogeekcast.com Reddit: reddit.com/r/geektogeekcast

S1E2 - Let's Talk About Anxiety, Depression, and Self-Care
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 app to for meditation? You already did for Couch-to-5K. It took me years to finally get help for my anxiety, so I know how hard that can be. I want to share with you some of the strategies I’ve learned regarding self care that have made my life much happier and healthier. *Where You Can Find Me* twitter.com/professorbeej geekfitness.net anchor.fm/geekfitness *Geek to Geek Community* Discord: discord.geektogeekcast.com Slack: slack.geektogeekcast.com Reddit: reddit.com/r/geektogeekcast

S1E1 - How Harry Potter Helped Me Lose 150 Pounds
This is the obligatory "get to know you" episode. I talk about how I lost 150 pounds because of a terrifying experience at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and how that affected my life. I give a simple -- but not easy -- 5-step process that anyone can follow to lose whatever weight they need to. They're the same ones I used, so I know they work. 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, the books and movies are fantastic, but if that theme park hadn't been built, I have no idea where my life would be right now. So thanks, Harry! You really are a wizard. *Where You Can Find Me* twitter.com/professorbeej geekfitness.net anchor.fm/geekfitness *Geek to Geek Community* Discord: discord.geektogeekcast.com Slack: slack.geektogeekcast.com Reddit: reddit.com/r/geektogeekcast *Other Geek to Geek Podcast Network Shows:* geektogeekcast.com Geektitude.com teatimewithkc.com
