Well I think to be fair it was 10lbs, but twice.   So by #6, or the 3rd time I've done DL, it went from 95 to 105 to 115.  Which still seems pretty fast for someone who said 'Oh yeah I do um like, 70# KB DL's I think...?'   We'll see how it goes next week when they want me to do more... hah.  Hah!   And thanks for the tips Oramac, I looked at the pics (and will read more better more later) but yeah, maybe I need to stop trying to do that.

 

I am about to have them roll up characters for a Starpuck D&D game!

 

Woot!  Good day, indeed.  Even with a crappy run, that's still super awesome.  GO GO D&D!

D'awwww!  You're totally invited Might!   Just logistically it's a bit of a trick.   You can be our contact from the western isle of Rastania!    I will make them send letters to you for info!  And you can answer back ICly. :D

Seriously? Heck yeah, if you want a writer from the far west/east (depending on which way you travel), I'm in!

 

One of the interviews I saw with Matt Coleville (I think?) actually suggested that you can have friends in far off places create/run NPCs in the game.  They provide you with a basic set of strengths/weaknesses, and you can run it that way.  If there's ever a question, ask the person between sessions how the NPC might act in a certain situation.

I second the idea of filming yourself while doing the DLs, and then posting it for a form check.  One of the reasons I haven't seriously lifted is that trying to DL or squat with bad form seems very dangerous.  I'm sure you should be more than strong enough to handle the 125 lb deadlifts, but if the program is going to be jumping you up in weight so quickly, you really should make sure your form is proper.  

 

Yup.  Form is super important in deads.  And really any other lift, honestly.  But it'll bite you in the ass more easily during deads.  I can, unfortunately, attest to this fact. :(

Guuuys!   You're making me want to try and run a game on D20 with you all.

 

Tonight is Star Wars gaming night, and I did a thing for the group.   I took all of the pics I drew up and printed them out in small small format, and then taped them together, and put them on a base.   Sooo now when we have to pull out the grids and maps, we will know without a doubt who is where!  We'd previously been using printed character cogs that might possibly look like our characters... but they were all a stretch on the imagination.

 

DO EET!!!!

 

Those stand ups are freakin awesome!!

Week 1 - Day 1 : According to Starpuck anyway.

 

This morning is proving difficult on the mental side of things.    The scale continues to trend upward despite my efforts.    I have a month to go before I see professionals on this matter, so in the meantime, all I can do is collect data and hope that they will be interested in seeing it.  I realize of course that the timing of monthly events likely holds a part in this weeks shocking scale reveal, but it does little to dissuade the disappointment that comes with it.

 

I've decided to take what info I do have, and try to shake things up a little.    For the past ... many months, Fitbit has told me my average daily calorie burn is 2200.    Oddly enough, my average intake always falls between 1500-1800 on most days, so really, truly, there is no formulaic reason I shouldn't be losing weight.   So for the next few weeks, I am going to just aim for a certain WEEKLY target of 11,900.   Rather than just call that 1700 a day, I am going to zig zag the hell out of it.    Aiming my higher cal days for when I am running or playing hockey.

 

This week's plan:

Mon - 1500  ||  Tue - 1850  ||  Wed - 1600  ||  Thu - 1900  ||  Fri - 1650  ||  Sat - 1600  ||  Sun - 1800

 

MWF - Stronglifts

TTH  - Run

Sat  - Hike (Supposed to be nice!)

Sun - Yoga/active rest.

 

Today Other Stuff includes:  ▪ Reading the background story of the gnome bard, Weebly Greenbottle, ▪ writing up first adventure stuff, ▪ fleshing out some of the zones on the map, ▪ sending out an intro to the world, ▪ arting - possibly starting one of the other PCs from Thursday D&D, ▪ then some ESO tonight!

 

Alright then!   Shrugging off the discouragement and heading out to lift!   Because Day 1 Yo!

Today I did things.

 

Stronglifts Workout #7

Squats at 75lb

Bench at 60lb

Row at 60lb   - form check here pls!

 

Between squats I did reverse crunches, 30 - 30 - 30

Between bench I did reverse lunges with 20#, 10 - 10 - 10 (each leg)

I ended with a 35" mid point hold on the pull up bar hangs.

 

Calorie Goal was 1500 today - and ended with 1506 and gotta say, was not feeling hungry or deprived at any point.   So that's good.

 

Read both of the stories my two players sent in and got some ideas for that.   And also started the rough sketch of Ghivran our sorcerer who has ... dragon tendencies due to an experiment done on him long ago.    Decent start for the draft, will tweak some things in Manga Studio once I get it to that point.   I think - lengthen the torso a bit, and make the "L" hand bigger.   Might have to make other proportion adjustments after that.   But the hands are not terrible!   And I dig the start of the face.

Now it's off for some ESO, that I've not played in 9 months.   I am going to be so damn lost.

Ok, so work has been stupid busy and tiring, holy crap.    I did get out for my lunch run though.    I started off saying, just reach 1.5 miles then you can walk.     My lungs felt good today so I just kept going.  "Two miles is a good point."    Kept going.  "Okay 2.5 is your best since restarting."   Kept going.   "Well, you've done two laps past your recent best, you can surely do 4 more and get a solid honest to goodness 3 miles, right?"    Right!    It was slow!   Ok, faster than my first ever 5k after ACTUALLY training.   But so much slower than where I was.   Of course, where I was happened to also be 15lbs lighter on TOP of being actively training the runs. 

 

I had to cram for food today to hit my 1850 mark as today is a high zag.     I ended the day with 1840, so huzzah.     Mostly good healthy stuff too.    I was invited to go to sushi with friends tomorrow, but after adding up:  1h20m drive in rush hour to get to where they were eating, plus I'd miss happy hour and have to pay full price sushi, plus I'd be cranky because sushi is kinda high in calorie and so I'd only get to eat like one freaking roll.... I said I'd catch them another time.

 

I did some art after getting home.   I lengthened the torso and made the "L" hand bigger.   I think the thing throwing me off now is the L hand's arm.  It needs to be bigger.    Maybe?  It's in front, and just seems oddly placed.    Anyway.  Here's what the tweaked bod looks like.     Hmm, back leg bottom line needs to come up a little higher leading into the knee too I think.

scI2Y51.jpg

 

After arting, I managed to get my addons resituated for ESO.   Then I did some of my old crafting things and just spent a bit of time getting used to the controls again.   I then had the brilliant idea of creating a new wood elf to use for going through the game more slowly - thinking it could help give me ideas and starting points for my D&D game.   Nom all the ideas!    THEN I thought, oooh, create it, and then also use it / its picture for use AS AN NPC IN YOUR GAME STARPUCK!    So, meet Ruyn.  (Which is actual Elvish and means dream bringer.)   She is going to be a druid.  A Druid On a Mission!!!

lZeqoyS.jpg

 

Also added a new data page on my BuJo, which I'll picture up tomorrow.  I am tired as hell -- likely from that run + work foo.      So far, things going pretty swell!

Honestly, I think it looks fine.  Maybe the forearm could be slightly bigger, but proportionally I think it's there.  I am confused to why he's wearing flip-flops though...... :P 

 

Good plan!  It's so fun to find ideas all over the place.

Flip Flops.   The player requested sandals of some sort.   He also said the clothes should be kinda kung-fu like.     In fact, in the email of several clothing references, Natsu was featured.   It was funny, as he kept telling me all the fine details about this, I kept replying with $15, okay now it's $20.  Sharp teeth, dragon slit eyes and scales?  No scales.... I hate consumant V's!   $25!!!

 

I slept pretty well last night, at least until 6am when the birds decided that 3 days in a row of sun = spring.   O M G.  Nasty birds too.  House sparrows.  Squawkers and squeakers.  Nothing pretty like a Black Capped Chickadee (which could sing at any hour and I would be fine with it.)   Today is a lift day and I am feeling pretty good about that.   

 

The bad news is my self-esteem this morning.   It took me 20 minutes to figure out what to wear.   Everything looked bad on me.  I kept noticing every last thing I disliked about my appearance.  I even caught myself saying 'I am so fat' as I looked in the mirror.   =(  Geez.   It does not help that the scale continues to refuse to budge.   I am feeling so helpless with all of this and I still have four weeks until I see the dietician.   Some of my friends and family tell me that I am not fat- that my weight must be muscle, or that maybe this is just how I am supposed to look at this point.   I can't accept that.   I'm not looking to be skinny.  I just want to see this belly fat go down and my waist size get to a more healthy point.   I know that when you carry weight in the belly area it's more dangerous than other body fat.   And while my numbers are good right now -- if I don't work to improve this fat issue- they won't always be.    I just want answers.  A solution.   That's it.  Even if I don't like the solution (I am bracing for something like 'yeah, wow your body sucks and you can only eat 1200 calories a day'  story) - at least then I will know what I have to do to change.

 

Oramac is right.  Feelings ARE dumb.

So the character is like Dragon Jesus?  I'm totally going to hell for that one. :P  But I laughed.  

 

Shotguns are a thing.  They make the birds shut up very well. 

 

Ok.  I know I can scream YOU ARE NOT FAT! at you until I'm blue in the face and those dumb feelings still might not go away.  But seriously.  You are not fat!!  Have you looked at what you're eating instead of how much?  Maybe it's not a calorie thing so much as it is a food-type thing?  I don't know.  Just throwing ideas out there.  

 

And yes.  Very dumb, indeed.

That's a great pic, I think the rear leg, if it's behind his center of line, should be drawn smaller/thinner than the front leg. The leg line looks fine if anything the tendons when visible in that area would be different. If you don't want flip flops then I'd add more straps around the ankle to make it like sandals.

 

Oh and one more thing, you my dear Starpuck, are most definitely not fat. You are a work in progress, take it from a guy who sees nearly every body type on a daily basis. Fat, you are not. You have meat on your bones.

Thanks for the encouragement all.   I gotta say, that despite the rather poor attitude this morning, I kicked today's ass.    Ok.  No, I didn't kick it's ass.  What I did, was get my ass kicked by it, but I kept pushing on and got all my shiznit done.

22ec0486f29a9bfff106f6c0f194f0877dd60263

 

I lifted at lunch.   Stronglifts #8 in the books.   Squats up to 80 and now I gotta thing about it a bit.    OHP 60lbs.  O M G.  So hard.   Will look for form videos later and probably ask for a check next time I do them.   Deadlifts, I switched the app (thanks @obax) to only increase the DL's by 5lbs at a time so today was 120lb.   Was fine with it.  Well, fine in that, I didn't cry.   But also takes some effort here.    Because things were starting to require more focus, I limited the in between stuff to just some ab work between the OHP.   I also ended with a strong 45" hold at the high point on the pull up bar.

 

Calorie target today was 1600.    Finishing up the day at 1593.

 

Spent an hour on Ghivran pic after work and I am pretty excited about how the clothing turned out.   I did add heel straps (thanks guys!) and adjust the back leg line a bit (not that it's super noticeable now that I've put pants on the man) and added the details.   The request was "Grey, Blue, Brown, White.  Use those colors ok.  His background is that he was a thief until being offered a choice by the Mystra wizard that took him in.  He doesn't want people to take him for a wizard because he feels like he's not that skilled.  His powers are bestowed by the ritual he underwent.  Loose pants, sandals, sort of kung fu looking garb.   His arms have some scales starting to show, pointed teeth and no weapons really, just a spell casting pose."    His list of reference pics included Natsu like gear and a bunch of sweet pics he pulled from the internet.  Mix and match indeed.    So, here's the last pic I will post so as to not spam you all, until he's all done.    It's funny.  I used to do only faces... and these days, I feel like my faces are the weak spot!   I might tweak the mouth some more... I dig the eyes, but the mouth is not quite perfect for me yet.

 

pMNYWtt.jpg

 

Tomorrow is D&D night!   So excite!    I hope to come back with some awesome stories about our adventures and exclaim accolades about how very IC I was, and what great voice or one liner I came up!      We are going to make pumpkin chili at the house before gaming, as I will be at  the gaming den both tomorrow and Friday.   This means I will eat healthy food and not waste monies on eating out to boot.   

 

Until next time!

Thanks for the encouragement all.   I gotta say, that despite the rather poor attitude this morning, I kicked today's ass.    Ok.  No, I didn't kick it's ass.  What I did, was get my ass kicked by it, but I kept pushing on and got all my shiznit done.

You kept pushing and got your shiznit done.  That qualifies as kicking ass.  

 

That drawing looks amazing!!  So damn cool.  My only small quibble would be with the sandals.  The back strap should attach to the base further forward, or his heel will come out when he takes a step.

Please define what ESO stands for, because that elf druid looks amazing

 

I'm guessing it's Elder Scrolls Online.  And yes, the elf looks fantastic!

I'm watching Critical Role right now and I'm afraid that I'm going to get hooked due to the overwhelming awesomeness of D&D!

 

I'm sorry, and you're welcome! :P  It's a ton of fun!

Second.

And your drawing looks AMAZING!

Yup, blame @Oramac on the Critical Role.  He's the one who fed me that crack in the beginning too!   And thanks!

 

Yes, ESO stands for Elder Scrolls Online.  I played it a ton back in 2015-2016, then shifted back to SWTOR in mid-summer 2016.   I gotta say, the guild I ran with, the RP I get, and the fact I actually also get to PVE in a very casual manner on ESO has made this switch back feel VERY good.   Also.   Here.  It is an absolutely gorgeous game. :)

I am starting to think Oramac has a closet full of shoes!   Hahaha.    I shall poke at the heel strap see if I can get it further up without it being weird.    The player is pretty stoked about it too so I am super inspired to take my time on finishing it up.   Get the colors to work together well, fill the selections so there are no gaps.  Yus.  I will do this.   I should also seriously start reading books on how to better use that software.  Cmon Puck, stop being lazy and content with just a few tools.

You're welcome!!  I've seen every episode so far.  It's all kinds of fun, and I legitimately envy their gaming group.  

 

That game looks gorgeous!  I actually kinda want to play it now.  Is it F2P? 

 

I don't have a closet of shoes, but I worked at a bank for two years with 3 women who all had shoedazzle accounts.  When they spend hours every day talking about the damn things, you pick up a think or two. :)

hey dude! i'm only like, a week late, but you have been SO BUSY. I love the idea to zigzag calories, I've wanted to try that in the pat but have been unmotivated so. can't wait to see how it works out :)

 

ALSO we have to talk. You're not fat, but those rough self-esteem days are hard to talk yourself out of. here is your challenge: find an outfit that you don't normally wear, and one that we all told you you look amazing in. Set it aside, and when you have a crappy self-image day wear that thing. you're already uncomfortable, and we are all actually the best judge, so you have to trust us. TRUST US. wear the thing, and force yourself to agree that you look amazing.

(I'm kind of thinking about the skirt and boots combo from a couple of challenges ago?)

Yes!  Good idea, this is.  And I agree about the skirt/boots combo.  That looked really good.
