  1. Good luck! I know how hard it can be from experience (as a father of two little girls), finding the time to exercise is incredibly difficult. Adding work + whatever else on top of that makes it nearly impossible. I personally try to implement early morning walking and pilates (my wife is good enough to be a teacher and helps me with that) before my oldest wakes up. What works for you?
  2. I had a post here before, but it's been a long time so I guess this is a reintroduction. Anyway, a year-ish ago I was rear-ended by a truck and have all sorts of fun injuries as a result. That, plus the fact that I work 2 jobs as well as a far beyond full-time student (ex: I am taking 26 Credits this Fall) and am a husband as well as a father, means if I want to do any exercising it has to be extremely early in the morning and even then I don't have a ton of time to do so. I have been pretty big my whole life, though there was a few years about five to six years ago where I became obsessed w
  3. You know how they say you are what you eat? Well, you also become who you surround yourself with, at least to a point. I know from experience. In my younger days I used to drink with friends and the like; I remember the times we practically spent a week drinking and having a great time. However, as I've gotten older, and probably more mature, I find that I have just as much (if not more) fun just playing board games with my friends, or going on walks, and so on. I think once I found a healthier group of friends, I just stopped enjoying alcohol like I once did. Even know, I have some great tequ
  4. I always feel like if someone has something about themselves that makes for an easy joke, then they've probably heard them a million times and are sick of them. Plus, I don't like a challenge, I like to make jokes that people have to think about (and often don't get). Same as dirty jokes, it's really easy to make a funny dirty joke, but keeping it clean is more of a challenge with most people I encounter. Anyway, so my shorter friends, while still getting teased by me, are safe from short jokes. Alcohol is just another example of how a lot of people would rather drag you down than even think y
  5. Ugh, I hate when see things like this; half of me is drooling and wants it so bad, but the other half is using common sense to let me know that I not only can't really afford it, but I don't really need it. It's quite an internal battle, lol. Thank goodness it wasn't something like Goku's outfit from DBZ or I would have had to buy it.
  6. Yeah, I remember being shocked. I mean, it's one thing to buy a defective, scratched, damaged, etc., game as those can (usually) be returned and/or swapped out for a working one, but to open a box and find literally nothing inside it? I didn't even know what to do. Thankfully they did help me, even if it was very reluctantly. I think the worst part was I completely understood their side (I even worked at a Gamestop for a little while some years ago) and knew what my story sounded like, so while I was annoyed at the treatment, I did understand why I got it (which in some ways made it worse, lol
  7. I think my worst experience was when I bought the Wii version of the first of the EA Exercise series. At the store I saw it and asked the clerk for it, he went and grabbed the display case and asked his manager where the actual game was, so he went into the back to grab it. When he handed it to me both the clerk and I commented on how light the box was and the manager said something like "I know, right?" I went home, a 30 minute drive for me as well, and when I opened it... the box was completely empty. No game case, no band, nothing at all was inside. I couldn't believe it. I even went on Goo
  8. I try to see the best (or at least the better) in people as well, but there are some things that apply to many people: they'd rather everyone be bad at the thing they are instead of improving themselves. I hear it all the time, especially in the health world; "That guy has bigger muscles than me, he must be on steroids!", "That woman is skinnier than me, she must be bulimic!", or just flat out making fun of people who try to eat healthy and/or exercise while they finish eating their second big mac. Some people are really great, they push themselves to become betteter. Others, and often the o
  9. Most of these comments are just more proof that far too many people would rather drag others down to their level than try to climb up to theirs.
  10. Alrighty, so I pretty much quit updating on here during the six weeks since I had no help, encouragement, or even some sort response from anyone at all so I pretty much just turned to Fitocracy to keep track of my routines. Seriously love that site. Anyway, so here's where I stand now: I did... okay. I didn't do horrible, but I didn't do great either. My MWF routines were rocked and expanded on, so I'm doing more sets, reps, and even added some different exercises to the routines. I can now do 3 Sets, back to back, twice in a day, of: Squats:
  11. Have fun in Prescott I personally love dogs, but live in an apt. that doesn't allow them, so if we all hike together and your dogs are brought I won't have a problem with that
  12. Day 2: Well, it could've been worse I suppose. Exercise: I did walk, but I didn't do the interval training. Level up my life: I forgot that I made the rule about computer time for Day 1 and 2, gonna have to work on that now. Diet: Urg... I made the mistake of eating fast food. I forgot how bad it is for you and with two small things ate over half of my allotted calorie intake in one meal. I wound up hitting about 3k calories, though was still under what my BMR is to lose weight. Essentially, it could've been worse, but it could've been far better. Yeesh, eating 2k calories a day can b
  13. Day 1: Kicked arse! Oh yeah!... mostly. Exercise: Completed the 1 hour of Belly Dance and Yoga, but didn't complete the bodyweight exercises. Diet: If it were a hurricane, I'd have rocked it. According to FatSecret, the site I'm using to keep track of calories, I ate about 1600 calories, so I have plenty of space leftover Anyway, here's hoping I'm able to do the just as well, if not better, tomorrow!
