Sunday Summary. Exploring, The Pressure Project, Newish Diet, Skyrim
The pictures above are taken in a really glorious forest that my girl and I were exploring. I have said it before and I will say it again, hiking and exploring in nature is one of my favourite things in the world to do. I really think more people, especially gaming guys should get out into nature a bit more often. Why I say gaming guys is due to the fact that it is really easy to see a few hours in the forest or along a mountain ridge as a quest, just like in Skyrim, also, if you are lucky and are living near cool areas with beautiful nature this becomes even easier. Furthermore if you are spending a lot of time in the Temple of Iron (which I hope you do), it can be nice to mix things up a bit and get a different sort exercise!
I was very honoured to be invited to The Pressure Project podcast a few days back. TPP is actually my favourite podcast, which made it even more glorious to make my podcast debut there. I listened to the episode the other day on my walk to the gym and I am indeed quite pleased with the outcome. Master Chim is a legend himself with a lot of wisdom to share so yet again; if you haven’t checked out TPP make sure to do so (not only my episode but also the other ones!). http://www.thepressureproject.com/tpp-174-the-golden-one-a-talk-with-marcus-follin/
Furthermore I have for the first time in a very long time (and I will make a Gains Kitchen episode of the following) made a significant change to my diet. I have begun incorporating the völkisch potato in my diet! The reasons for this is that they are filling, nutritious and most importantly very cheap. This will allow me to keep down the costs of eating in addition to keeping me from going on a too large surplus when I begin “bulking” again. It will not be an outright bulk, but just a period (the Autumn) where I will not be as strict with the diet! I might have mentioned the following both once and twice before but it bears saying again; since I will not make any noticeable size gains any more it might be unnecessary for me to put on the extra fat (which I then will have to shred down later on either way). With this said I will obviously aim at making strength gains! The 7,5 kg bag of potatoes was something like 3,5 euro!
Lastly, I have decided to venture back to good old Skyrim, I returned with the Nightblade to YouTube the other day and immediately realised that Skyrim makes for a rather optimal game for let’s play videos since the commentary is easily made entertaining. Total War contains more hard decisions and detail than Skyrim does, which makes Skyrim have a more natural flow in the conversation and commentary. I will still do Total War videos but also more Skyrim ones in the coming time! The Golden Nord will make his return in one of the coming days!
