  1. I have a set of Wusthof knives. I believe it is this set. And I can confirm they are fantastic and keep their edge very well.
  2. I love this game. I too am a completionist, and I think I got REALLY close with this one but never quite got all the notes. I wonder if I still have a save file on my cartridge...
  3. I'm not terribly familiar with VBA or Kendo UI unfortunately. If I had a better idea of what you were attempting to accomplish with those technologies, I might be able to be a bit more helpful.
  4. There's actually a pretty well-established assortment of similarly-textured fruits and vegetables utilized in the making of various sweet breads and desserts in America: banana bread, zucchini bread/bars, carrot cake, and the list goes on. Most of these are heavily augmented with sugar and spices, but for some reason none seem to draw quite the ire that pumpkin does. Maybe none of them have quite the signature spice mix as pumpkin and therefore haven't been as commonly reproduced seemingly in places they don't belong. Either way though, I stand by the general premise that the fans
  5. Walkouts are a pretty common way to acclimate onesself to heavier weight. I wouldn't mess around with the safeties though. Just load the weight up on the bar and walk it out as you would with a normal squat. And after that, load it up even heavier and do it again. After having a supermaximal load on your back a few times, the actual weight you want to squat will feel like nothing in comparison. But I do think there's value in doing the actual movement of picking the weight up off the pins, stepping back, getting in position, etc., as opposed to just a static hold in a format you would never ac
  6. I'd rather have a little extra energy stored on my body than ash coating my lungs any day. I'd say the extra eating has been well worth it for you. And it's always awesome to see there's some extra muscle there as well. Nice job!
  7. It's been a while since I posted last. I've just been trying to maintain mostly. I did 1 split last week that featured deadlifts and OHP. Two workouts in a week is better than 1 or 0, and I actually had a really good OHP session where I cleared 5x6 @ 135. I don't think I ever even completed 5x5 at that weight before, much less am I often masochistic enough to do more than 5 sets. I've been getting weird PRs like that on occasion, not necessarily because I'm getting any stronger, but just because I'm trying different set and rep schemes that lead to specific results I haven't seen before. And s
  8. Looks like you are crushing it. I am a little late catching up on this thread but I just wanted to say that game and your character for it looks awesome!
  9. Week 2 Thursday I finished off my chicken wings and drank some whiskey, and not much else. I think I like mowed the grass or put away dishes or did like 1 productive thing and called it a day. I didn't track my calories, and I haven't tracked them since. Week 2 Friday I spent way too long in my hot garage cleaning and putting up pegboard. There were some old disconnected wires and old garage door controls and stuff that I tore off and cleaned up before getting started. I also had to saw some bits off to fit around light fixtures and stuff, so this was a bit more challengi
  10. Hi. I keep struggling to post something, because I struggle with a lot of the same general existential malaise and I don't have any more answers now than I did the last time we discussed it. I'm just chiming in to lend some support in the form of paying attention and following along with your challenge. I'm curious how all the video stuff is going for you. Talking about things helps me focus on them; I'm not sure whether or not that's the case for you. It's a big part of why I'm around these parts. Anyway, stick with it and good luck on the rest of your challenge.
  11. That's all that matters.
  12. I don't have a lot of walking room in either of the places I work out, so I don't walk, but I still alternate legs between each rep. 8-10 reps per leg, or 16-20 paces total, with dumbbells, weight dependent on how tired I am since they are always after heavy leg stuff. Usually 3 sets.
  13. Eh you know, kind of but not really. Bodies are complex, yadda yadda. Not sure if that covers gender differences or any of that. Actually re-skimming that, my number is probably more like 15 lbs of muscle than the 10 I said earlier, but I still think my 70ish lbs of fat is probably a higher priority from an overall health perspective. Week... 2? Monday Monday I went and picked up a bunch of stuff at the hardware store that I need to tinker with all week to fix some stuff in my house. Then I grilled some burgers and asparagus, and went and watched the new Spiderman
