GamerFitNation Presents Amie Biasi as True Gamer of the Week.
Amie tells us a little about herself. She is 31 years old and has been married for almost 7 years. She loves photography and arts and crafts.
I’ve been doing freelance photography for 13 years. It’s just me and my camera and I travel to where I’m needed. While I don’t have the academic education or a huge setup, photography is the one passion I’ve always had and I’m always looking for new ideas, poses, and fresh ways to make the experience a pleasure. http://www.wix.com/AplusPortraits/portfolio/
Gaming Systems Owned: She owns the DSi, PS3, GameCube, Dreamcast, and PSP.
The game that sparked your interest in Gaming: Like most, it was Super Mario Bros. I remember in the 80’s, watching my uncle build his extra lives until they went into symbols instead of numbers. While he rocked the game, I could barely get past level 4, haha! I may not be any good, but I’ll always love that little Italian plumber
What keeps you gaming: boredom, a need for something to work my brain… and the occasional desire to spend time with my husband doing things he loves.
Workout regimen and eating habits: I had ankle surgery in March, so I haven’t been able to work out. While I was healing, I also fell and dislocated my shoulder, which didn’t heal properly. I got depressed and in my inactivity, let myself binge. I regret it now. Being active has been very difficult since, because of my improper healing, but for nearly a month, however, I’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of things, eating breakfast again, snacking on fruits, vegetables and whole grain crackers instead of junk food (or at least minimizing the junk food) and also getting on the Tony Little Gazelle a few days a week. I have to start slow because the reconstructive surgery was unsuccessful, so even minimal strain is very uncomfortable.
Advice to gamers who are struggling with weight issues: You have to be ready for the change. Others can’t make the decision for you. But once you’re ready, really commit to it. Don’t be afraid to cheat every once in a
while, but keep it sensible.
Health wise what are you goals: I don’t have a specific weight or pant size goal, I just want to be able to see my toes again. I want to walk up the stairs without my joints aching. I’d like to live long enough to experience life in a fuller way and enjoy my time here instead of feeling miserable from being fat and unhealthy. I love women with curves, so a little extra cushion will always remain on me, but it would be nice to think I look and FEEL good again.
Opinion on Health and Gaming: I don’t think a lot of gamers out there care about health. The stereotypical gamer sits on their butt and snacks, drinks sugary sodas and plays games for hours and hours on end, not moving unless their bladder moves them to do so.
Opinion on the current motion technology: If enough gamers would get it and use it, it could be a very good thing and potentially lead to a healthier gamer. My
husband got his for Christmas last year and it’s mostly sat collecting dust, L but he has hopes to get more active again once he has more time (He graduates college this coming October).
GamerFitNation would like to thank Amie for letting us into her world. We hope your ankle and shoulder would heal properly. Welcome to the club.
