  1. I will now be bingeing on this channel. I loved MRE's as a kid, PopsDee and I would always take them when we went on week long walkabout trips in NZ...a fishing pole, black powder rifle and 3 MRE's each; for in case you didn't catch or kill your own food that day. Now I need to order some....Thanks!!!! Sidenote: The old MRE packs (from the '70's and '80's) had a heat stone that contained magnesium in them, so if you cooked a 2 peoples meals on one stone you could use the extra stone for a variety of things (mainly a small pressurized explosive when combined with water and a seal-able container....lol
  2. A new animal is your choice, but to echo everyone else, dragons are pretty much the best!!! These are just a few of the ways dragons are portrayed. Throughout human history the dragon has held a place of legend and lore in so many cultures that it can't truly be tied a few solid aspects of "what makes a dragon". Their portrayal is as varied as the cultures of humanity are....from powerful and god like, to frail and deceptive; signs of luck and prosperity, or the sign of impending doom; the keepers of wisdom and knowledge, as foolish as a jester; charitable and giving or as the misers of gold and treasure (I could go on and on). Maybe it's not a new animal you need, but maybe a new viewpoint or understanding of how the dragon has evolved and changed with you.
  3. This should be easy, I have no specifics on days for goals that last week or so, but I have averaged doing them about half the time....lol, I should probably explain. Week 1: Goal 2: Put the damn Fitbit back on: I was ok, wearing my Fitbit, even hit my steps a few different days, then had charge it and forgort it for 3 days...lol Goal 3: Stop poisoning myself: Not so hot here. Having trouble pulling my self back off of the "bad" foods, mostly cause I love them and 2nd because the ones on the veggie list were always some of my main go to's. Goal 4: Attitude adjustment: I took my medicine most days, think I missed 2 I did finish 2 more characters, need to get the other 3 on character sheets then start getting back story and current story established That's what I remember of week 1, the reason it is getting posted now is due to the fact that on that saturday afternoon I was hit by the stomach it bug, and when I say hit, I mean hit like a full speed bus... ...a full speed bus full of fluids that we don't mention out of politeness. So essentially Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues I was either in bed or in the bathroom. I called of 2 days of work (which I hate doing and pretty much survived on water, Gatorade, apples and crackers (very little of the latter 2). and that's how week 2 started. Week 2 (the rest of it) Was busy at the office after not being in 2 days, and was still only rocking at about 70% full health, Thursday was the first real day I felt normal. But due to being out Mon and Tues I did not take last Friday off for a mental rest day and rolled right from a busy 3 day work week into going to buy all the tools and supplies needed to paint the interior of our house. We are getting new floors through most of the house so I figured we should paint while it does not mater if we make a mess. A little shy of $300 later we had everything to pull the base boards and paint about 50% of the interiors (the other half is bedrooms that are ok) and then went to prep everything that was suppose to be done the weekend I was ill. Sat and Sun was painting all day for both, and was of yesterday to get the house put somewhat back together. So it has been a crazy week or so. Week 2 recap: Goal 1: Finish a fuggin' Challenge I'm trying....... I don't even have a clue on the other goals. So I know I'm two days off but I'm starting week 3 now with a fresh slate. I am wearing my Fitbit, I am making my nerd rounds, I have posted, I took my drugs and I have avoided all of the "BAD" foods so far today. Now to do this a few more times this week. I am hoping to get another D&D character done tonight baring COD does not release it's BR today....
  4. I cannot stress how STRONG and COMMITTED this shows you are!!!! Holy $hit, this is amazing, so few have the will power to do that, especially as it is such a habbit, but then for you to recognize that and not just say F'it I already lit it....HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! many people will not realize what a feat that is but I am amazed and VERY VERY VERY Proud of you!! You are my hero!
  5. This could be a good thing, sometimes people are to involved/too close to see issues that are starting. We went through something like that at the jitz school once, and had a talk with them and everything got better and avoided some issues.
  6. Sooooo much WIN happening in this post....poor picked on cylinders, they're the big & tall thicc boi's of the art world
  7. I know you can't see it, but I did a little happy dance for you in my desk chair when I read this (think snoopy dance from a chair ) Kat starring down this challenge:
  8. I swear I am here, and alive...been a crazy last 2 weeks.....I will update today at some point I promise
  9. not only a badass but a mega talented hottie... Keep killing it out there!!
  10. be careful with this. Hopefully just a stain, but man y many years back I messed up my foot (long story) thought it was a sprain....stressed it again a month later, (pan, swelling, discoloring) took it easy and then 2 months later stepped in a pothole and destroyed my ankle! Moral, better safe than sorry, make sure you have your ankle looked at really good. Looks delicious, you can send some my way!!
  11. don't let it mock you, just remove it. maybe add it in on another challenge. Adaptation is the key. Keep killing it, your trip looked like a blast!
  12. hope your doing ok! I assume the silence is because you are just out there killing it!!!!!!
  13. hope you are still able to read this! Sending positivity your way
  14. A good bone broth can do wonders. My mum drinks a ton of broth (mainly due to food issues, it's her secondary source of protein) but 3 of her doctors had made mention about how happy they are with her increase in bone structure and muscle health (no working out besides mild PT). I make a lot of bone stock for her, and she buys some brands she researched and trusts, but she has been using it for years, so it could never hurt. PT should always be followed. I have broke more bones and F'ed up more muscles than I can count, but I learned at a very important lesson at an early age: ALWAYS do your PT, no matter how boring or how simple it seems, do it! to this day I still draw the alphabet with my big toe in the air for ankle strength (long story). No matter how frustrated you get, or how boring the exercise might be, always do you PT!! always ask! no matter if it's in your head or not...most are happy to hear questions/comments, shows you are attentive and care. Trust me I have this convo (should I ask or not convo) with my Dr all the time, and they actually tell me they like hearing questions. So ask, that's why you pay them!
  15. It's tough, if you ever need to vent or scream or just want to talk about it, I'm here.
  16. This is needed some days, I feel like society has pushed us all to a point that we forget it's ok to have off days. Take the time you need. but don't be a sad sack of goo, be a relaxed and rejuvenating sack of goo.
  17. I will echo everyone else here, take the time you want/need, say anything you need to vent, always know there is ZERO judgement by anyone here. There have been so many times I have been on these forums and then went into a downward spiral only to withdraw and not use the place as a safe zone to say things I never could to others. I am trying my best to now; sometimes it comes out in rants, others in just a quick feelings dump, but every time the Nerds here have support it, have come to listen, and in just that act have helped me out. Always know, that even if I don't post in here, I read all your words and send all the positivity I can your way! I just never have faith in what I say on these topics as I suffer through them as well. Side note: Any hug from a fellow NFer, awkward or not, is a great hug!
  18. Spices FTW!! I have spent a lot of time over the last 3 years making various dry rubs and spice mixes for different meats and meals. I have always been amazed at the difference a little change here and there makes; rather it be different ratios, or even changing spices. I've always said a good piece of meat that is seasoned right, especially if grilled or smoked, should not need anything else to make it good, it should be great on it's own and any sauce or topping just compliments the meat. Do I feel a Beer and food collaboration video in the future?....hehe
  19. The glitter looks great on you. That is a really good picture!
