Crazy news: FitnGeeky is evolving!
The short of it is, I've jumpstarted a new website called FY!S! You can visit it by clicking here. What is FY!S? Well, it's short for Fuck Yes! Saturday. Inspired by my most popular blog post, The Rule of Fuck Yes! For Healthier Eating, I'd realized the core of this mentality needed to be personally applied on a more regular basis--a whole day, at least (usually Saturdays).
It's hard to believe but despite living my dream job and experiencing amazing flexibility, I face a unique set of psychological challenges that usher me toward burnout, making me withdraw from friends and family and generally not enjoy things as I could. I needed to invoke the power of Fuck Yes! on Saturdays to give myself permission to have guts and say Fuck Yes! to the things I keep putting off in favor of "working just a little more."
Then I thought why just a day? It should be a personal mantra! Here's a taste of what that means to me:
And so that's kind of how Fuck Yes! Saturday (FY!S) was born. Some people are mistaking this for YOLO and excusing yourself for irresponsible choices.
Nope, nope, nope.
I say it is a reminder to yourself that some things can't continue to be put off. You either do it or you don't. There's no wishy-washy grey area. And while the idea of saying Fuck Yes! to running off to Belize is tempting, I'm also referring to the small things.
...Say Fuck Yes! to putting aside work for a day and spending more time with your family or kids.
....Say Fuck Yes! to the workout, even if your mind is telling you to be lazy, but you know damn well that you'd be glad that you worked up the energy in the first place.
...Say Fuck Yes! to letting yourself do, not just dream.
The goal is to make the idea of FY!S meaningful and powerful for you as well. I'll do my best to make sure the information/thoughts/ramblings that I share from hereon will be valuable and important to you, too. Don't worry. It's a different name and site, but you're stuck with the same dork and all the things you loved about FitnGeeky--just with more traveling and accounts of my nomadic life...and a bigger potty mouth!
My YouTube channel will stay the same and I'll continue to update it when I can. This blog, FitnGeeky.tv, in particular is going to live on as a memory, pushed into the annals of the internet as legacy content. Thank you so much for being here since the beginning, now, and in the future.
Let's do the dancing!
TL;DR: All of my new content will from hereon be on http://thefyslife.com.
