yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

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.

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.

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.
