It's good to see you. Good luck with all the real-life shenanigans. I'm glad you'll be able to pull up NF on the priority list. 

 

See you!

Things are going good. I just got done working two weeks straight at 13 hours a day. Still recovering from that ordeal. I've been having a little trouble keeping up with workouts and eating, however I have the next couple days off. I plan to take some time to iron all that out. More to follow!

Hi!

Sorry it's been a while since I last posted. I'll do my best to get a proper post in soon. Until then, I'll just drop this here:

Wow, I really stepped out for a while, didn't I?

Well, not a whole lot to report. My job is starting to change responsibilities, and it has cut some serious stress off of me. For the first time last week, I felt like I slept well during the work week.

For those that don't know, when I work, I stay in my travel trailer all week. It became clear early on with this job that if I drove the hour and a half one way commute every day that it may literally kill me. I almost fell asleep on more than one occasion going home. I work 12 hour shifts at night, so needless to say, I would rather stay up there for a few days a week than die coming home.

Since I last updated, I bought a new home for my family. We love the area and I don't really want to live close to work. It's not the best place to live in my opinion. The nice thing is with the new place, I finally got a yard where I can set up the garden and greenhouse I wanted. Home grown food has always tasted better and I miss the connection I get with growing my own food.

The garden will be a traditional one and the greenhouse will be an aquaponics greenhouse, meaning the combination of fish and plants to create a synergistic system to grow food. I finally got the greenhouse up today and I am working on putting the system in now.

Here is the greenhouse:

This is the start of the hole for my sump pit, basically the low spot for the water.

a3c63c62e757f3196ed39cca5b883f87.jpg

I'll take more pictures as I build stuff.

Does anyone have any suggestions for fruits and veggies to plant? I have a few ideas, but I need more for the amount of growing space I have.

I'm also thinking about starting some sort of gardening thread if there isn't one once things are up and going.

That's about it for now. Sorry I've been out so long, I'm rebuilding some habits and decided I need to update here more often.

I hope everyone had a great day!!

I'm sorry about the trailer life, but you are wise to avoid the commute. I'm doing my own serious stress at work stuff, and not liking it one bit. I've slept over 7 hours only twice in 2 weeks; very tough. 

 

Second, I am going to start over on the NF Academy. It is time to prioritize my fitness more and I felt it was a good time to respawn.

 

I did that and loved it. It's so cool to see how much I've really learned and incorporated into my life. 

Hang in there!

Dude. I've skipped out on nf for a while too. I've missed it.

I'm excited to see more pics of the garden. Looks awesome so far

Sad week for me, my favorite dog of all time passed away this last Tuesday. Unfortunately she had something rupture in her belly and it took her down in less than 12 hours. I was kicking myself because I wasn't home and thought if I was that I may have been able to save her. My wife got her to the vet in the afternoon. After speaking with the vet, they had said even if I had been able to get her in that morning, it still was too late. She will be missed.

How sad! Particularly that it was so unexpected. I still miss my favorite cat (we had 21 years together). I'm glad you and your family took prompt action. Now, you can honor her memory. She will be with you that way.

Sending good thoughts.

Hey all! Sorry it's been a while since I last posted, just dealing with life.

Been keeping busy, having my puppy around has helped with the loss of my other dog.

Made some progress on the aquaponics greenhouse! So, here is a recap:

After some cold weeks, I finally got to here:

91b7c96fc0575d2a1bbbb616434a522f.jpg

After a few more weeks, I got to this stage:

Then, about a week and a half ago, I was here:

And then, my last 3 days off, I finally got here:

I do have cucumbers, zucchini, and a couple different peppers planted so far. I have a little more work to go, however it is officially going!!

I'm thinking of starting a gardening thread if there isn't one already. I'll still update the progress here as well!

Are those koi? Are they just to make nutrients or will you eat them? I just read an article about restaurants serving "golden carp".

They are just goldfish for now. They are just for the nutrients. I eventually do want to do some sort of edible fish eventually. I've been thinking catfish or perch. Goldfish were just an easy starter and, quite frankly, are a hearty fish in case I make mistakes. They tend to be able to live through most stuff.

I haven't seen the golden carp yet, I will have to look that up.

Hey all!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I just did a big update on the greenhouse here:

https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/79393-Garden-Planning---What-Do-You-Want-To-Grow%3F/page__view__findpost__p__1942711&share_tid=79393&share_fid=26425&share_type=t&share_pid=1942711

That's pretty much what I've been working on lately. I will be starting the new challenge in a few days, still working on goals.

Hey all!

Been running a challenge, so sorry I haven't been updating much here. Wanted to at least share some pics of the greenhouse, it is going crazy.
