@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 07:09 PM)

Or Lee Derwon.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 March 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  Sabrblade : (23 March 2020 - 09:05 PM)

I'll give ya 25 cents, a pack of gum, and some peanuts.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 March 2020 - 07:35 PM)

I can give ya twenty bucks for it.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:13 PM)

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

@  repowers : (22 March 2020 - 03:49 PM)

That's totally super biased!

Uppers: 510 + 160 = 670
Lowers: 90 + 50 = 140
Core: + 50 = 50

 

Biked 5 miles for a warm up yesterday.  Did a TRX circuit and my body feels like I was hitting heavy weights even though its just body weight.  Off tomorrow so Im going to get some running in.  5K on the 20th. 

 

Trying to get into an every other day routine with a 3 on 1 off work schedule we have.  So my day off will be running + weights.  Middle day of work, Bike (more than 5 miles, I was short on time) + TRX.  Then abs on both days.

Weight this morning: 212. Down three pounds in a week. Is this sustainable? Probably?

 

In the past week, I've hit a treadmill once. All other exercise has been walking, shoveling sleet and wood working in my basement. I don't dare run outside until a good spot of 40 degree weather to melt the ice gathering round me.

three pounds in a week is NOT sustainable. You'll lose quickly at first, but it'll taper off after a week or two. It's literally just your body being surprised at the extra effort. But congrats man!

 

So an hour and a half of upper body today, all of it trying to clear two inches of ice that's as hard as concrete from my driveway. If I had three more days like today, I could do it. If I had a flame thrower, I could be done before dinner. Since they're predicting 20cm of snow over the next two days: it's going to be an ungodly mess until spring.

Lowers: 140 + 90 = 230
Core:  50 + 170 = 220

 

​Did a 5K on the elliptical.  Then did whatever I put in my notes below.  Im tired.  A little sore. But I feel good and accomplished.  

 

I put this on Instagram/Facebook and Ill add it here, maybe somebody needs to see it.  So Ive seen a lot of people talking about their mental health and how that is leading to them feeling confident in themselves and their physical appearance.  Remember, mental is one of the four pillars of resiliency. Physical is another.  There is still Spiritual (can/cannot be religious) and Social.  If one of those pillars in your life is out of balance, your life is out of balance.  So do whatever you need to do in this life to bring that balance to your life.  Get in the gym.  Get outdoors.  Hang with some friends, even if us just bunch of Transformer nerds here.  Go to church.  Do whatever you can to get that balance.  And if you feel your life is out of balance, send me a message.  Ill listen to whatever it is you're going through.  As a I saw in a post on facebook, Id rather listen to 60 minutes of your problems than a 15 min eulogy at your funeral.  Hope everybody is having a good day.

Did TRX before work tonight.  I got woken up a couple of times through the day so I wasn't 100% committed to working out, but I made myself get up and go.  Glad I did though, as always, feel better after working out.  

 

I also did 100 Jump Rope, but I wasnt sure how to figure that in.  100 reps of lower?

Took a short walk on friday, but it was -30 something outside. With the temperatures fluctuating so wildly, I finally managed to catch a cold. So I'mma try to take it easy for a couple of days.... after today, cause today there's 20 cm of snow to clean up.

Mental, physical, spiritual, social, hmm.

I sat through a week long class learning about these 4 pillars and things about them.  

 

Mental: Getting your mind right. Not quitting because that voice in your head says something will be hard.  Anything worth doing is hard.  If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth doing. 

 

Physical: More from a military standpoint since this is how it was taught, but staying tough.  Staying mission ready. Taking care of yourself so when the shit does hit the fan, you are physically strong enough to handle whatever comes your way. This includes a good diet plan as well, not just being in the gym.  

 

Spiritual: Not necessarily religious. For me, its why I love hiking and biking.  I can be out on a trail, get to a certain point, and just look and enjoy what this world has to offer.  Maybe its going to church and talking to God (or whatever you believe in).  

 

Social: Having a good social circle, even if that circle is just one other person.  Me, I just love being with my wife and kids.  I don't really care about hanging out with people other than them, unless Im around my family.  But its those people who can see when something is off with you and isn't afraid to ask you if you're OK or not. 

 

The military has the acronym ACE:  Ask if they are thinking about hurting themselves or others.  Care for them, let them know you are there.  Escort them to get help, IE: Mental health, hospital, church, whatever they need.  

 

Biggest thing I took away from the class is: When you hit bottom, are you the ball that bounces back or the egg that cracks.  And of course you want to be the ball right?  You want to bounce back from adversity and continue back on a better path.  But sometimes its OK to crack. Sometimes its OK to get down and feel bad for yourself. But thats when you need to try and pick the pieces up and bounce back.  And if you cant do it on your own, you need to recognize that and realize that it is OK to ask for help.  Its actually the stronger person who asks for help instead of trying to do it all themselves.  

 

Resiliency is a great thing have and to practice.  Knowing how your 4 pillars are and if they are in balance or not and what you can/need to do to get them in balance.

Pretty good workout this morning before bed.  Skipped doing the 5K, its cold at 0800.  Plus it would have been 1000 by the time I would have fallen asleep and had to be up at 5pm ish for work.  I like getting my sleep. Took a selfie because the workout doesnt count if you cant prove it.

Weight this morning: 214. Up two pounds in the past week. Over the weekend, I was at an event that had BBQ meatballs, so I'm kind of OK with this.

 

Walked every day this week, even in the snow. Filled all the rings on my Fitness app since Jan. 2. Feeling good.

I took calf raises off the list, somebody was on the machine and being slow. Took off abs too and because Im fat and I wanted to get some food before the DFAC closed. Still getting my miles up. Signed up for the Taji 100 in February, 100 miles from walking, running or jogging. Cycling doesnt count (booooo). Also, I havent done squats in a really long time. I dont know what the muscle is called on the inside part of the leg, but it let me know its there and not happy about squats.

As long you get back after it.  Consistency is one of my biggest issues when Im back home.  Between work, 2 kids and a wife, life gets busy.  Right now though, fitness is something to help pass the time and get in better shape. The goal is to maintain once I do get back and stay away from the fast food places.
