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.


Hey! Cheer up it ain’t that bad is what everyone says, PFFT! Whatever! I can’t rant about this is all day if I want don’t make me LOL!

Just kidding!

I thought I would share this picture I stumble across a about a week ago and it seems like it make me feel a bit better… Nothing wrong with that right! Inspiration is good, am I wrong?

SO Anyway, This is what I was referring to earlier that I stumbled upon a week ago. I felt the words as I read then, they  are powerful and it just gets to me sometimes because of the way I act occasionally. You all know you can not say you don’t feel the same way too sometimes, or occasionally. All it ever seems to me is that we get sad or upset because of the things we do not have instead of opening your eyes and looking at what you have right in front of you!

Nonetheless enjoy!

Uplifting I think

Hey Readers its MoonPie!

I have been gone for a long time…

peanut butter moon pie

Basically all I have done is working out and eating right.

I work out about 5 nights a week and two of those days are heavy workouts.
Hell I am down 40 lbs woot! for me!

Oh I forgot to mention I’ve been working my ass off at the job and with all of lives little stresses, it does not make things easier. I could blog about problems but who wants to hear my sappy stories, hell we all got em!

Lately I just have not known what to blog about.

So with that being said I would like the readers who can comment and my fellow authors to help fuel my mind with ideas on what to write here…. I am in a slump right now with no imagination!

Anyways I am sorry for being gone for so long, I dont want that damn Frog attacking me or its frog legs for dinner tonight…… seriously

So, I’ve actually been meaning to make this post for about a month now, and I don’t exactly know what has kept coming up to prevent me from doing so, but here it is. I was part of a group creation, along with ErinLovesTheWeb, Jihawk, Digustipated, Starstorm, Saga, and maybe a couple of others (if I forgot you, I sincerely apologize, buy you could leave a comment, and let me know!)

Let me introduce to you: The South East Michigan Independent Gaming Alliance of Yesteryear. Which is also known as The Semi-Gay. You want to join, send me a message (there are plenty of places where you can do so), and we will see what we can do.

And lets move onto the next bit of news… Does anyone but me remember Fisch Fail live events? I miss that shit, I might try to bring it back. They were fun while they lasted, and it was a good way for you guys to actually get to speak with us and meet us “in person.”

Also, I think we all forgot about this… But we need logos! Any of you remember the logo contest we had going on? The one where you guys were supposed to create a logo for us, so we can have official pictures that apply to us. The contest is simple, you guys design us an image that portrays the concept of Fisch Fail, INC (and if you don’t know what that means, perhaps you could take some time and read some of our older posts, it might clear some things up). We then take your logo design and make sure it gets immortalized for all the world to see… Or at least those who read our blog.

Speaking of contests, we are still looking for a model for some official Fisch Fail, INC flavor (personally, I like chicken and salmon, but you guys can choose other ones that are more to your liking). We could really use contestants, or else you guys get to see us presenting the magical gear and no one wants to see that. And I promise you guys, you will love it.

Also, you should never forget about “I’m Addicted to Your Mom!”

And now for the reason you guys are actually reading this post, the sexiest pictures of 2011 as judged by Fisch Fail, INC.

But wait, there’s ALWAYS more!

Well its been awhile since I last posted anything on here…. My Apologies

On a positive note I am not attending college at this point, I was thinking about taking a few months off; I need a break!

With that being said I also started working out more often building up muscle and toning at the same time.

So a few buddies of mine all started doing this crazy workout and let me tell ya it is very brutal. 90 days of this

shit too ummm I am not to sure on it but I will be continuing this process.

Any ways I am on Vacation somewhere in Kansas!!

Drink it and smoke it!

That is all!

Oh wait I leave you with this video…… Play it when you work out hahaha!!


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!

 

 

 

New Year! New Me!

Once again it is that time of the year again, where we all make up New Years resolutions….

Ha, who really follows em? Not me, I say I will but fall off right away!

This year I am going to narrow down my resolution from just losing weight, which requires many steps.

I will take it one step at a time!

No Soda or high SUGAR drinks. I think that would be a nice STEP in to the right direction.

What do you all think about that?

AWOL bag v2

So it’s now officially cold-ass Michigan October and I’ve had something on my mind for awhile lately.

With the wintery conditions coming closer and with our economy we’re in the midst of a potentially dangerous situation every year.

I’m not talking about “holy fuck it’s the end of the world” or “hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife”.

I’m talking about fucking survival.

I don’t know if the in-house FFI authors have noticed but I’ve been looking into many survival articles as of late; everything from making fires to the correct equipment for BOB (bug-out bags… which from this point on I will call “GTFO bags”).

It’s not just a preparation for what could possibly lie ahead. It’s a lifestyle (much more improved than my current one) that I may possibly adapt.

I will be completely honest with our readers.

I am unhealthy, lethargic, suffer from panic attacks, and am generally a pussy burden in a survival situation. So what’s a bum like me to do in order to fix these issues?

While nothing in terms of planning is concrete, I do plan to live a much healthier lifestyle, as there is no excuse to do otherwise, right?

I’ve already got one habit that is almost beneficial, and can become an asset if “tweaked” a lil.

I love tea, and I love water. I usually keep away from pop (yep, pop… fuck soda) but my tea tends to become more like spiced sugar water. So less sugar, got it.

I’m actually rocking some mixed chai as I type.

Y’know I was on the right track w/ exercise for a lil while around February, but as with most projects I’ve bitched out. I know conventional behavior modification techniques, I should use self-implementation.

Now I am fully aware that an event of catastrophic proportions is unlikely, but if I prepare for this reality and create a healthy and more responsible mindset in the process, am I really losing out?

I believe in later posts I will get into the brass tacks of survival hoop-la, but for now I’ll just stay vague, due to my own lack of knowledge, and pose a question to our other authors and readers.

What the hell is the difference between M.O.L.L.E. and A.L.I.C.E.?

Discuss.


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, my first day of work is now over, and its been a long day. So let me get down to it.

I wake up this morning, 6am sharp (completely accidental), and walk outside for a smoke. I realize it is still quite cool, and I want to be awake, and start my day correctly. So after the smoke, I walk inside, fix myself breakfast (coffee, banana, cashews, granola, and yogurt), eat, and then change. It is now around 630am. I decide the perfect way to start this day is…

Go for a fucking swim. It was cold as hell, but totally worth it (so much so, I may do it again tomorrow). After my swim, I decide to work out a little. basic stuff really, nothing hard (besides ErinLoveTheWeb was asleep and I didn’t want to wake her). After a little while, I start to nod back off and decide to take a nap (due to shitty sleeping on my behalf as well). When I reawaken, I walk outside, and come back inside, blinded. The sun was up, and that fucker was bright (our apartment is underground, and our bedroom is in the back of the place, it’s always cool and dark back there…) I return inside until my eyes adjust a little better. That’s when I realized this is how I get to wake up everyday.

Now, I’m going to share it with you. Don’t mind the pictures, I was still half asleep when I took them, my joints weren’t wanting to function properly, and I was still partially asleep. Also, these pictures don’t do the real thing justice…

View in the morning.

This pictures do not do justice to that world that I saw this morning...

Another Morning View

Again, no justice...

Morning View

A final picture for now.

And then I got to work for the day. Now, I won’t go into details regarding that (legally, I am not allowed). So we fast forward. It is now around 5pm, and I am standing on a dock, drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette, kinda reveling in the day. I walk back inside and do an intense workout (ErinLovesTheWeb was gone at this point), afterwards I went shopping, and bought some random ass shit. It was good.

On a side note, I spoke to the mystery writer today, and they are currently having some computer issues, and will be posting ASAP. Also, the beloved Breeish, contacted me about writing (an article) for Fisch Fail, INC. however, I was unavailable at that time, and the article was published on her own blog instead (http://breeish.wordpress.com/), however I may still try to get it posted here, it is amazing. It looks like Fisch Fail, INC has another new author Ech13. He hasn’t started yet, but I’m sure he will soon enough, so make sure you all look out for that. It also appears that the (in)famous Eldwardo will be dropping in from time to time as a guest author. So that will also be fun.

On another unrelated side note, we are still waiting logo submissions from all of you.

On a final side note, I have started dieting and strength training again. This means that when I come back I should be able to kick Luz’s  ass, more painfully. Should be fun.

I think that is it for me and this post. I may do another short one a little later on (before bed), but who knows.


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.


So, I again want to apologise for a lack of posts once again.

But the last few weeks have been incredibly rough for me.  I’ve had way too much on my mind that was causing a heavy burden on my heart.  I haven’t been able to sleep. I haven’t been able to eat (very well), for multiple reasons.  In short, I’ve been just this side of a train wreck.  I’ve been a monster to be around.  But the monsters inside my head were even scarier.  It is something I could just not cope with, so I ignored it.

I cannot remember if I had mentioned that I am unemployed, which has added to my depression, but I think I am getting better.  And this will hopefully be a bit of something like closure for me.  Or something.

Lately though, I’ve had trouble thinking clearly.  Hell, more so, I’ve had trouble thinking at all and have been trying to fill my time with mindless activities, while mentally berating myself.

I lost another portion of tooth.

I almost gave up the will to live.  I don’t mean that I considered suicide, but I somehow managed to loose the entire spark that made me.  This is it for now.

I promise you there will be a real post tonight.

 

On a slightly unrelated note, Luz, started a post 10 days ago, he should do something with it.
