Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@Trpodeca :( :(

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Welcome all, to the 2020 edition of the fitness thread. If you're new here, it's quite simple. Exercises are generally broken up by region of the body, upper body, lower, core, ect. And we count cardio under distance covered. Keep track of your reps and miles, and share them here if you want. Otherwise, ask question, share answers and help support the other folks on the allspark whom are looking to get into better shape, lose weight, change their eating habits, or just be healthier.

 

Normally, we have community goals for totals on the stuff we track, but I think we absolutely murdered some, and completely missed on others last year SO we're going to eschew markers and just count up totals instead.

 

Miles: 0 + 3.1 = 3.1
Uppers:
Lowers:
Core:

 

And since I took a nice long walk on new years day, I'm more than happy to start the whole thing off. :)

I weighed myself this morning.

Im currently 322. This is less than my highest maximum weight which was 336 back in high school but massively higher than the 197 I got myself down to about ten years ago.

My life situation has changed and Im in a better place mentally than I have been in quite a while so I feel like I can make some real progress this year.

My current goal is to be 280 or less by June.

The goal is still 135lbs. Or 140+lbs with muscle. I can do it! I will do iiiiiit!

Dont we all??  lol.  BTW, Calories during the holiday season dont count, so you're OK!  

 

I think Ill be at the gym tonight when I wake up (working nights right now) and Ill get on the scale then. Gotta get my miles up, 2 5K's this month.  Ill probably do some sprint work on the treadmill tonight.

215 pounds this morning. Trying to get down to 200 by the end of April. I think it's doable.

 

I prefer being outside for a run than working out indoors, so these next 2-3 months are going to suck.


 

2 5K's this month.  Ill probably do some sprint work on the treadmill tonight.  

 

Nothing helps me work out more than knowing I've got a run coming up. It's a great motivator.

They do at least one 5K a month, themed around whatever we are celebrating that month. The one at the end of the month is for MLK, not real sure what the one this Friday is. 

 

Miles: 18.7 + 3.3 = 21
Uppers: 50
Lowers: 90
Core:

 

Did interval sprints on the treadmill tonight when I got up. Was working on full body weights, got through legs and was finishing shoulders when I felt like I was going to throw up and felt 100% out of energy. Core workout get skipped too. Ive been taking Animal Cuts for weight loss.  Supposed to take with food when you wake up, I took them with just water.  Probably why I felt like shit.  

 

For the intervals, same as I've done in the past, but since we have some new faces in the crowd Ill explain the workout in case you want to try it. 

30 min of running/walk (or whatever you want/can do)
0 - 1 min, walk at speed lvl 4 (15 min mile pace)

1 - 2 min, run at 7.5. (you pick the speed, 7.5 is an 8 min mile)

I did that for the first 10 min, then bumped the run up to 8 for the next 10 min.

The final 10 min, I went to 8.5 with the last 2 sprints being at 9.  

Ive done it before, but was in better shape. I tried to change the walk to a jog at 6.  Realized that was going to overwork me.

Supposed to run a 5K in about 2 hours. 

 

But....

 

1) its raining

2) Its cold

3) (And the main reason Im NOT running it) My leg is sore from my workout the other day.  Ill be 40 in May.  Ive learned not to push it when I get muscle aches and pains.  I know rest is what it needs.  unfortunately.  Guess Ill get some extra sleep today!

Sorry you missed the 5K, but better to miss a run than to hurt yourself.

 

I managed to get a walk in yesterday before the rain set in. I know I'm slacking this week, but between mom who went in for surgery on monday (laproscopic full hystorectomy. She was home on tuesday.) and me having apparently caught a mild cold, I'm just sore, tired and with no where near the patience to actually get any real exercising done.

Today was mostly spent cutting/putting up wood panels at my in-laws with TMM. I think we're finally done! ...for now. Decent amount of up/down stairs and general manual labor. No idea how to calculate that in, though. Also I think we're both coming down with a cold.
