I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

I don't think we're going to hit our miles this year, but I do know we're much better than last year. More people doing more exercise, which is the point. I'm proud of us all.

FIGHT ON!!!

(that was needlessly dramatic...)

It's a good work out, and if you're actually interested in doing it, it's a lot of fun.

 

If you think it's like downhill skiing: you're going to be disappointed. I'm biased though cause my first experience was with cub scouts "Hey! Let's go SKIIING!" and then three hours of cross country and not downhill like everyone expected.

My run. Going to do one more week at 3 miles, then up to 3.5. Also, going to finally get around to watching the troubleshooting video and see if I can't pin down that clanking noise. It's not loud or anything, but should really do it if I want this machine to last.

So I am somewhat disappointed.  I looked at my year mileage with running, walking, hiking and cycling and Garmin is telling me I only have 586 ish miles on the year.  I feel like that is a little light.  I know I haven't been cycling as much as the last couple of years, so that might have something to do with it.  Kids will do that to ya.  But, I feel good. Im happy with my running progress.  Running that 6.29 miles last week was a good feeling/accomplishment.  

 

Ill try to keep everything up to do date for the end of the year totals. Sorry I've dropped off from posting more on here.  Life just gets busy.  Hope everybody has happy holidays and a happy new year.

Dude, life will ALWAYS have to come first. Kids, wife, work, chores... That makes the little time you choose to spend here more precious since you choose to spend it with us. Don't worry bout dropping out once in a while.

 

Totally looking forward to the totals. I can't wait to find out how far I actually shlepped my fat ass this year.

Long story short: I tried to get upgraded internet and wound up getting knocked offline for 2 days. It was also two wasted days as it was spent alternating between on the line with tech support or waiting for call backs and tech visits which never hugging happened. I took a run this morning. Shooting for one on monday, but we will see what happens.

I might as well put down my goal at the first page. BMI whatever aside, I looked lean at 135lbs and I'm 5'6 (yeah, it's not in kg and cm).

I should check a scale tomorrow but my last weigh in was 167lbs and that was before two buffets. I'm probably 169lbs.

Let's just say I need to lose 35lbs. 1lbs a week would be ideal.

Focusing on diet then exercise. Here we go.

It's Jan 1, 2019 and I'll be doing a breakfast buffet but my last weigh in was 152.8lbs.

So Jan 1, 2018 was 167lbs. Say Dec 31, 2018 was 153lbs.

I lost 14lbs. So for 2019, gotta lose 18lbs so reach my 135lbs target for my 5'6 height.

Edit - Math!

Seems like your on pretty good track to do it. Droppings lots of weight quickly (while it DOES raise your own morale.) isn't very healthy. Losing the weight because you succesfully changed your life style and habits to be healthier is a FAR better thing to do.

 

I might weigh myself tomorrow morning, just to see where I start next year, but I don't know if the scale still works (haven't hugging touched it!) and frankly: I'm terrified of what I'll see.

So I have a ton of stuff to add in since I last updated on 10/29. But heres what I put on Facebook after working out today.


What a year. I just finished my final workout of 2018. It was my 428th day in a row of exercising.

As I put my weight bench away, "I could not ask for more" by Edwin McCain starting playing. That song was my wife and I's first dance song. We chose it because we knew, even back then, that our love -- that family -- would be the most important thing in our marriage.

2018 has embodied that as we end the year in a *completely different* place than we expected to be. From my wifes cancer to an unsuccessful ministry relocation to my own heart issues to today as I end the year unemployed, really all that matters is that the four (okay, six counting the dogs) of us are together. Happy. Supporting each other. Standing undivided and ready to walk the path God has laid out for us.

Physically, I'm in the best shape of my life. I'm genuinely excited to see how much I can improve that in 2019.

On September 1, I gave my year to date stats. Here's how 2018 shook out:
-- I made it to 214.27, which means I'm within 30 pounds of my goal weight!
-- I finally wear large shirts regularly and size 34 jeans again!
-- I worked my upper body 127 times this year, and man, I can totally see it. Shirtless photos to come next year, haha!!!
-- I had 48 leg days and 46 days of crushing my core (with record 4 minute plank achieved on May 16).
-- I *almost* hit 1 million pounds lifted -- 998,920 (with a one day record set on Nov 7 of 15,750 pounds and 315 bench press reps).
-- I averaged 77.9 ounces of water per day.
-- I averaged 6817 steps per day.


Ill tally up my upper, lower and core stats sometime between now and tomorrow. 2018 might have sucked overall, but health wise, it was awesome.

Just had to comment that those results are really awesome! Nearly 1 million? Size 34?!

I really should have my own year in review but I didn't do enough work as I should have, grr.

On the 2019 thread, woohoo!

I'm a day behind, but finally tallied up everything since 10/29. And thanks Fero...I almost got my bench back out to break the 1 million mark, but decided to make it a 2019 goal instead. I'm hoping to get down to size 32 or 33 by the end of this year.

 

Miles: 4630.61
Upper: 50,108 + 4465 = 54,573

Core: 19,427 + 1391 = 20,818
