Seven very tiny words, that individually mean nothing. But for m they hold more meaning that I could ever try and explain. For the past 2 years

they have been my own personal mantra, instilling inspiration, motivation and hope for me throughout my journey to increase my overall health.

Just seven words that to this day still amaze me.

The past few weeks have seen a slew of health problems arise for me: illness, sleep deprivation, stress, depression, overall exhaustion, digestive sadness, and breathing issues just to name a few… But they never caused me to stray from my goals and mission.

In the past two years I have actually managed to reduce my pant size by over 12 inches and while I remain happy with loss, I am always seeking ways to lose more.

Recently I decided to switch up the routine a little bit and starting working with a medicine ball (an intense workout to this day), and while it has been an amazing tool, it lacks the ability to isolate individual body parts (at least for me, if you know efficient methods of doing so, I congratulate you, and maybe we can discuss this together). So I made the decision to acquire a kettlebell.

Mind you, I am not looking for bulky muscle, but to tone and gain a certain leanness to my body.

Weighing in at only eight pounds, I was nervous that it would be too light for me to effectively use. I mean I have never been a power lifter of any sort, and I have never wanted to, but that doesn’t mean I do not have considerable strength (you can ask any of the members of Fisch Fail, INC about that).

Well my friends, I can say that today was the first day that I have actually used the kettlebell and all I can say is: fuck, what a workout!

Within ten minutes of starting today’s workout my heart rate was up, my muscles were well warmed, my lungs were fighting to draw more oxygen, and I was dripping sweat.

By far one of the most intense sessions I have had in a long time (which could be caused by the workout itself or the aforementioned string of recent health issues). After I was done, I could do nothing but sit on the floor soaked in sweat, gasping for air, and genuinely feeling good.

And that was when I realized something important. It is not often that I receive a full body workout of this caliber. Generally when I go to the gym, I focus on one thing specifically (cardio, fat burn, or weight lifting). And although I hit all major groups at the gym, I focus on one of them.

In this single workout, I was unable to focus on only one aspect. It truly was amazing.

And when the routine was nearing the end and my muscles were growing tense and tight with strain and I was growing too tired to continue on, I turned to music and listened to the one song that has yet to fail me:

I still find it amazing that seven simple words “One Small Step at a Time, Bro” could hold such as an important personal message on hope and inspiration.

What helps you achieve your goals when everything else has failed? Seriously, I (at the very least) want to know.

Well then, so much for the promise of “I will not be following the trend of making a more personal post… I’m just not that guy.” And to think, that promise lasted a mere ten hours… Well, shit happens.


It’s been a good run so far with FFI, and although we have a few slow-downs recently, we’re still growing every day.

If you are a reader of one little blog, casual or otherwise, you most likely won’t understand the title of this entry, and that’s a-ok. If you’re an author, most likely you won’t either, but you should and shame on you.

This date, August 13 2011, was when over one-thousand collective brains got to see the beauty that is Fisch Fail Inc. It was also the day that I noticed our blog was becoming something of a big deal. Honestly until that point I mostly blogged for no one, except for maybe myself and Mr. Fail, but afterward I began doing it for a lil ones… I mean the readers.

Seriously though; you guys have gotten us to new heights, and for that I am thankful.

A lot of crap has gone down recently (more on that later) so the blog has gotten somewhat neglected as of late, but hopefully that will change and more posts will be on their way.

Here’s to getting 1000000 views before the end of the year!

Fisch Fail, INC, is still a baby, still growing, still something…infant

If we were a human baby, we would be learning to speak, and maybe eat something that didn’t have the consistency of baby food. But fuck, we’ve already moved on to tacos and alcohol… Says something about us!

Anyway, yesterday we hit a random milestone… 20,000 views (and damnit, I was going to make sure I got to make this announcement!).

So, it took us nearly a year and a half to get our first 10,000… It took us 6 months, to get our second.

Lets try and beat that record (for us) even quicker.

Tell everyone about FFI, let’s do it!

 

 

 


so, at the risk of making all you fuckers jelly, and the fact that I actually miss you bastards (the Fisch Fail, INC family may be one of the best things to ever happen to me), I decided to bring you all on this journey with me. Even if it is only virtually.
But wait, there’s more


So, it’s officially the one year anniversary of Fish Fail, INC. What can we do to mark this momentous occasion? Talk about what we always talk about… That’s right POOP!

Now this was mentioned a while back when I spoke of my first pooping experience. There really isn’t much to this story but it’s funny all the same.

When I was younger and living at my mom’s I had to poop and bad. This was a make or break kind of situation. I ran up the stairs, and past my mom entertaining guests in the kitchen. I run to the bathroom. My sister was in it at the time and I REALLY had to go.

So I run further down the hall to my mom’s bathroom. Here is where it gets funny. My mom has a small counter-top in front of the toilet. I forget this as I pull my pants down with urgency and sit down on the toilet with all the ferocity of a Creeper about to explode.

WHAM! I bang my head on the counter-top. Ignoring this I continue about my business, until I see blood on the floor. That’s right, I split my head open while pooping. I didn’t know if I should wipe my head or my ass. Eventually, after I’m done I go back to tell my mother what happened. She took me to the hospital, where I got eleven stitches.

Oh, and by the way… Your favourite Internet Sensation has returned!

 


We here at FF IT’S OUR EFFING BIRTHDAY! We are in need of celerecreajubilation! What should we do to enjoy this wondrous week? You… yeah YOU… let us know! …or I’ll stab you in the face w/ a soldiering iron… seriously…

By the way… Luz is BACK bitches!

 


Fisch Fail, INC is officially a year old now. Celebrate with us! Buy us stuff! Or just send us some donations so we can continue to do what we do…  I’ve got some plans for you all. Including a few tonight.

What does this mean?!? This means I am posting on both of my blogs AT THE SAME TIME! Whoo… how nice…

A quick apology to the readers of this fine forum on behalf of myself and Fisch, we’ve been busy boys as of late and I am assured forgiveness will ensue. A hardy thanks from us both!

Speaking of “both”… I will be writing each entry one paragraph at a time, alternating as I go. So far this seems to be a novel way to keep my attention, and I feel as if I am doing only half as much typing, strangely enough. This is reminding me of a new homework-completion strategy I have learned about and will possibly be implementing. It is formally called the “30/30” process and basically involved doing thirty minutes of nose-to-grindstone work, then thirty minutes of something in which is enjoyable. The point is to have a feeling of “a break is just around the corner” while still feeling “I must get all I can done by this time” as well. Mayhap I will use this for my next semester, as this one is rapidly coming to a close, much to my relief.

Acing all of my classes, hammering out a consistent work out routine, and generally attempting to bring about positive change has left me spent in a multitude of ways. Yet I still push onward, entranced within a world of improvement which is solely my own, and push I shall.

With change comes what i would call a mental extinction burst (look it up) whereas I must digress into a mood similar to the common Pagurus armatus, or hermit crab. This may need some clarification; I want to run away, to the respite of my bed – crawling beneath – and awaiting until all personal betterment has receded. Frivolous, yes? Though the thought of cowering in my room permeates through my being, I still trudge onward.

Such dramatic language I use today, blamed on the large composition paper I had to write in one entire day. Luckily this will pass and the usual lackadaisical vernacular I execute will come fourth within the next few days. Laziness, here’s looken’ at you…

Speaking of apathy I will now cut this short, with the hope of publishing more often.


This is a public pat on the back to Fisch Fail Inc. for it’s 100th comment! Take it in, boys and girls, we’re going for a lot more, so keep reading and we’ll keep posting.

For right now, though, I will be busy watching my favorite show, so deal with it.

Hooray!

Life is just funny sometimes.

So, about an hour ago ErinLovesTheWeb and I returned from our first trip to the gym (yes, I got my membership) and we feel great.  However, we both agree that next time we should convince Stephanovitch to come with us (as long as he still has his membership.  We had a lot of fun, and actually plan on returning later today, as it’s going to be a week or so before we can go back).

On, a side note, I resumed my diet today, and as a result I feel great once again.  I also had only 2 sodas today (both were Coke Zeros.).  And on an even further note, me and ErinLovesTheWeb is giving the no smoking thing, a go.  Hopefully, it all works out well.

I’m going to try and post information along the way in regards to my success…  Maybe a few pictures here and there, but those won’t be a while yet.  But, I think this is all for now, watch for a real post a little later today.
