I'll agree with you on that.

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

Here we go again folks!  The 2015 Allspark Fitness project, brought to 3 years ago by Zodberg, is continuing on! 

 

For those of you who may be new, or want to see what we have done in the past, here are the links to the last 2 years worth of posts:

 

2013:  http://www.allspark....itness +project

2014:  http://www.allspark....s-project-2014/

 

Both have been great years and a lot of great, very useful information has been passed on.  

 

We also started something new around August last year...tracking our miles as a whole.  This needs to continue on this year.  Last year we were able to accumulate 1303.1 miles in just 4 short months.  This year I think we should set a higher goal, how about 3500?  Do you think we can reach it?  If so, what are you going to do be doing to help reach that 3500 mark by December 31, 2015?  

 

What about weight loss goals?  Do we want to start maybe a goal for that at the years end....how many lbs as a group can we lose?  Post your current weight this week, this time next year we post EOY weight and do some math?  

 

I know my goal is to reach 210.  When I got on the scale this morning after using the bathroom and stripping down naked I as 233.4.  I think I have a very attainable goal.  Ive already been looking at race down in El Paso when I get moved down there.  I would REALLY like to do another half marathon this year.  

 

Whatever your personal goals may be, even if you just come read our little post and dont comment, I wish you the best and hopefully whatever you read in here is able to help on your journey!

Hmm, a count for pounds lost would be interesting. But there's guys who might want to bulk up and gain muscle weight.

I'll definitely contribute to the miles again :)

I'll recopy my resolutions here but I did do jump rope and hit the gym again :)

The GF was doing fruit/veggie blends and had pretty good success in losing weight.  So today I bought a Magic Bullet Nutribullet blender and Mango, Celery, Cucumber, carrot,  Oranges, Raspberries, strawberries, Pomegranate, Granny Smith Apples, Honey Crisp Apples, D'An Pears, Bananas, Kale, Lemons, and mint (For a cucumber, lemon, mint water mix). 

 

The first shake I made had Kale, orange, cucumber, celery, carrot, and raspberries and tasted like I was eating grass.  lol.  I did find out it was A TON better to drink once I added ice cubes into it.  Not sure what I will have tomorrow. About to go on a 2 mile walk or so with the dog.  Tomorrow I need to go run.  Wanted to today but cleaning the house and juicing got in the way.  lol.

I'll be here to tell you of my successes and get motivation as I work on this now on my own (As my friend Rich is moving to SC cause of his wife's promotion)  Hope to drop another 60 lbs in another six months.

Had a great session in the gym today. 

 

2 min warmup on treadmill at 6 mph, .05% incline

1 min sprint 7.5

1 min jog, 6

1 min sprint 7.5 

1 min jog 6.5

1 min sprint 8

1 min jog 6.5

1 min sprint 8

1 min jog 6

That put me at about 1.3 some miles, I dont know.  

I started to do a walk at 4mph and 6% incline to get to 2 miles, but I messed it up around 1.4 so I had to restart the machine and walked a half mile then walked over to the other side of the gym so I Im figuring close to 2 miles there.  

Ran 1.5 miles on the indoor track (1 miles = 5 1/2 laps, I ran 6 full laps)

walked .5 miles (3 laps, .5 is actually about 2 3/4 laps I think)

3 sets of 15 crunches on exercise ball.  I can tell I havent done these in awhile, my fat was starting to cramp.  Had to call it quits.  Did some cooldown stretching and went to the GF's and got another workout....if ya know what I mean.  lol

 

had Chipotle for dinner.  Told the gal making my burriot bowl (No tortilla, cuts out a TON of carbs/sugars) to go light on the rice.  had chicken, fajita veggies, salsa verde (Green, medium), Chili corn salsa, light cheese, guac and stole some extra lettuce from the GF.  So not a HORRIBLE dinner but could have been better. 

 

Went bowling tonight with her at Red Rock Casino.  Walked past Auntie Annie's Pretzels and caved on the pepperoni pretzel and a lemonade.  ah well.

 

I dont feel bad with the workout in and my Garmin Vivofit says I have taken 14,573 steps today for 7.79 miles.  But at least 4 of that is from the gym and thats what Im counting in our tracker.

 

0 + 4 = 4 miles

No miles to log, but today has been nothing but an exercise in hard labour and problem solving. Moving appliances, demolishing doorways, cleaning and scrubbing, shoveling snow... and its only half hugging over.

Got a lot of house work done today.  Swept and mopped floors, gave the dog his monthly bath.  Got the wood rack resorted so I'll have dry wood, drying wood and wood that needs to be shifted over to dry. Set the last five tree pieces that need to be split on their ends so I can just go attack em sometime this week. Got back on the diet.  Had some peanut butter wraps for Breakfast, some turkey and cheese wraps for lunch and turkey tacos for dinner.  

 

Now to get back to the exercising LOL Open the next two days so the workouts will probably be later in the day.

I'm going to jump on the bike in about an hour, but I just spent the last 40 minutes chipping the ice off the front steps. Miserable work, cleaning up after an ice storm.

 

My arms hurt. Hatchet work sucks.

At the moment, I'm trying to put weight back on. During my nearly 4 weeks of bronchitis in Nov/Dec which kept me out of the gym, I went lost 9 pounds (185 to 176). Yesterday I saw I'm back up to 182.

6.5+9.94=16.44

 

It was weird, using the bike without the electronics. I kept my time, and used the lowest number I was getting before the christmas break as my distance. I'll be far more accurate once my new pedometer gets here... whenever that will be.

20 min run in 29 degree weather yesterday for PT. I did this in 21:09. After i went in and did upper body, 1 exercise per body part, 3 sets of 12. Then abs.

Still doing my fruit/juice mix, going good with those. Not sure when i will get a chance today to workout but going to find it.

Spent forty minutes working up a sweat in -25C weather chipping a sidewalk out of the ice. My arms hurt again...

 

Edit: I wound up skipping the bike ride today, between the walking and the work, I did a lot of cardio. So I decided to do something I haven't done in about a year or so. Sit ups. Okay, aside from the fact that my abs are screaming (I did 20! In a row even!) my ass is killing me. I need to put a pillow or something down cause that is painful.

Over the break, I mentioned I cleaned and maintained the stationary bike. I don't think It's ever been so smooth, or given such a strenuous work out ever... seriously, this shit is both awesome and devastating.
