The Road to Being a Healthier Gamer: March Update!

OR "How to continue being healthy while at Adepticon"

…I thought "March Update" was easier to swallow.

Let's be honest though, staying healthy while cramming prep for a convention isn't the easiest of things.  You're already short on time to get things done, and exercising, watching your calories and more just takes even more time away from that oh-so important prep.  Not to mention anything else that life decides to throw at you.  Which it did.  Throw at me.  Life's mean like that.

Adding to that, Adepticon is also in this month and you've got a recipe for disaster when it comes to maintaining a weight loss regimen. 

So did I succumb to the pressure?  Did I lose?  Did I gain?

Adepticon 2015: New Venue and Location Review!

In the previous coverage article, I mentioned that there was quite a few "firsts" for Adepticon and myself  this year.  Well, "quite a few" is a massive understatement actually.  This year was a year of firsts for many aspects of Adepticon, both for the attendees as well as the event itself!

I wanted to dive into the event this time around and take a good look at the changes made for this year.  The Good, the Bad and the Better.  Yes, I know I left out the "Ugly", but that's really because I don't see anything ugly in this years offerings, organization or presentation of the event.  Heck, I'm going to truly have to dig to find a "Bad" in there I think, and that's if I can find one at all.

I would change the "Bad" into the "Constructive Criticisms" in that phrasing, but it doesn't sound as catchy.

Adepticon 2015: Community Coverage!

This Adepticon held so very many firsts for me, it wasn't even funny.  They will all get their time in the limelight, but now is the time to address photo coverage of the 'Con itself!

…which I horribly neglected because I played in three straight days of tournaments.  See?  Two firsts right there!

I typically pride myself and this blog on being one of the top coverages, photo-wise at least, of the main events at Adepticon.  This year I dropped the ball on that severely.  Thankfully, the rest of the community did not.  Let's see take a look at some of the best coverage I've found!

Adepticon 2015: Prep, Prep, and More Prep!

Looking back through my archives, I've realized that this is the worst I've ever recorded my prep for Adepticon in the past 3 years.  That's a bit disappointing for me to be honest, as I truly enjoy recording how I do things, my progress and ultimately your feedback on how I'm doing, what I could improve, etc.

Busy is as busy does, I suppose, but still disappointing. 

Regardless, I wanted to show that progress has indeed taken place!  After Adepticon, not only will I post my usual 'Con coverage, but I will be taking some quality photos of the Infinity models I prepped for the event posting about them in groups.  How I did certain things, what worked, what didn't, lessons learned…  I'm looking forward to that, and I hope you will too!

On to the pictures!
