15 years ago I was a 450-pound gamer. Today I am a full contact Medieval Combat martial artist and extreme athlete. I have been fighting for over 6 years and in the past year transitioned into becoming a triathlete and retiring from being a full-time competitive fighter. I still fight, run, and enjoy every adrenaline-induced Adventure I can find!
This is my little space on the web where I am keeping track of my adventures. It has been a wild ride so far and it just keeps getting better. This past few years I have found a new love of journaling, planning and all things analog. I love stationary and ephemera and I have incorporated that love of paper into my YouTube channel, where I do notebook and planner reviews as well as vLogging about my BadAss Valkyrie Adventures.
People often ask me why I push myself so hard. Especially after I had gastric bypass surgery and lost over half my body weight. I came to the realization that I just don't have what it takes to sit back and be 'average'. I will never 'settle' for something less.
So here I am, 15 years post-op, I just turned 55 & had my right hip replaced but there's no signs of me slowing down, just changing the game! I'm built for strength & endurance, not mediocrity.
My life runs on caffeine and chaos, so buckle up, its gonna be a wild ride!
