Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

And you want 197? Dont you think that might be to small? Im same height, when going through basic in 04 I was down to 205 and felt weak. Im 230 now and comfortable, but if I could get around 215 id be happy. Mostly its just losing the belly for me though. Anything over a 39" waist and I fail my pt test automatically.

Weight right now is about 230.

 

My immediate goal is to get back down to 199. Lowest I've ever been was 193 but getting below 200 would make me feel a lot better,

 

I was sick going into the new year but finally got over that and have made it through today without snacking or eating any fast food so here's to doing that every day for the next 3 months :)

Good job! Ive tried to eat pretty healthy today but its after dinner snacking thats getting me now, but this popcorn is amazing. Going to do the walk a min, run a min for 60 min tomorrow then some weights. Taking Muscle Pharms Shreded Matrix along with Rasberry Keytones. Just need to keep after it. Im pretty sure I am close to my gallon of water today. I need to get a jug and just fill it up every morning.

Well, I would still be over my BMI, but I would be more comfortable at that weight. Realistically though, anywhere between 200 and 220lbs would be great, but I would just like to get under 200 once.

hug BMI. Thats the dumbest thing there is IMO. EVERYBODY is overweight or underweight on that scale it seems. And im sorry if it seemed I was discouraging you in my earlier reply, that certainly was not my intent if it seemed that way. 195 and I might actually see my abs! Lol

Yeah, I normally don't care about the BMI issue, but work has been stressing getting employees more healthy, and that is the scale that they are using. :( And no, you weren't discouraging, because I know that for me, that weight isn't realistic in the sense that even if I could get to 199, I probably couldn't maintain it without starving myself. Still, I would like to see my abs once, just to make sure they are there. ;)

I'm shooting for 220 myself. My brother is between 180 and 200 (depends on the time of year.) and at his smallest he is literally skin and bones. We're not that tall, but we're very broad across the shoulders. Even at 200 he looks too skinny.

I work for the State of Alabama. They are mainly doing it to keep their insurance costs down. They have been going crazy about that stuff for the past few years.

Wonko, it might just be time to head to the gym. Plus, the scenery is great. God bless the inventor of yoga pants!

Do they offer any discounts to gyms or supplement stores like gnc? Any extra cash or days off? Or do they just tell you to get healthy?

I lost 80 pounds on my own last time. I can lose 15 on my own now. Only the counter is broken: I'll use a pedometer on my music box, or simply run on time and leg pain.

 

But yeah, I've done the gym thing before while I was in cegep, and it wasn't a bad experience. I simply cannot afford it though.

We get a "Discount" on our insurance. When Istarted it was part of our compensation since we wer paid a lot less at the state than the private sector. Then it started costing $50 a month, but you can get a "discount" if you don't smoke, and another if you pass the health screenings. They don't give us any gym deals or discounts though.

Leg pain from injury or leg pain from working out?

What gym are you going to? Is it a chain or a local place? I go to Las Vegas Athletic Club, 22 bucks a month and has everything that the largest 24 Hour Fitness has. I LOVED the 24 Hr in Denver, had everything, but it was 50 bucks a month.

Skipping the gym tonight. Had a last minute meeting at work and left about an hour and 15 min late. By the time I got home it would have been the same time as if I had made it out on time. Dog can only be locked up for so long. Have PT tomorrow so im planning on going in early and making up for today. Still took my pills and drank what felt like a gallon but im sure im still shy 8f the mark. Not sure whats for dinner yet, have some hamburger dethawing in the fridge, might make some burgers. Warm up rice with it.

No, I learned in cegep not to do that. Thankfully, the yoga part of that class was still doable, so I not only got some benefit, but didn't lose my credits.

Water weight or not, that's motivation :)

On being sick, yeah, better rest. Not just for you but other folks in the gym.

Ugh, was feeling down and ate two chocolate bars yesterday but it didn't really make me feel good (chocolate has what chemical that makes you happy?). Ate one today too. Should take a walk to get feelings up (walking releases endorphins? Is that the feel good chemical? Same as sunlight?). Still not working out.
