I have some bad news to report, and more bad news to report. Let me start out with the bad news. The lens on my Xbox One has decided to hiccup. It will not read any discs of any sort; game, dvd, or blu ray. My friend, Gamaken, is going to help me in trying to fix it. I was told that your run of the mill disc cleaner may actually cause fatal damage to the lens reader itself. The plan is to open the Xbox and clean it all up on the inside. I will be bringing my console to the usual game location this Saturday so we can get this all done! At the moment all I can do is read data off of a USB drive and play Fable II since it was downloaded on my drive. I hope to remedy this situation soon so I can play again!
Now for the bad news. I have gained back some of the weight that I lost. I have gained four pounds back due to overeating and not counting my calories. I am putting my foot down and starting from square one! There shall be no more than 1800 calories in my system every day. I will be satisfied with only 1500, but NO MORE THAN 1800!! At the time of this post, I have had 1090 calories. I will be dining with my girlfriend tonight; low cal. for Alex! I am making corn beef hash and eggs–very low cal.
In September I will get a membership to Planet Fitness. Now I can go to the gym five days a week for hours on end! It is a 24 hour gym so all I need to worry about is my curfew and transportation costs. I am so stoked. Gamaken will be working out there as well so I will have a spotter. Since I stopped lifting with my father, I have needed a strong person to spot me! Belly be gone I say!
This Saturday I went to a birthday party for Ferg, Gamaken, and his son. It was great fun!
Today is a happy day! I confirm that I have lost indeed 16 pounds on a scale while fully clothed. That leaves me at 314 unclothed and 317 clothed, shoes and all on. I learned how to poach an egg today! My goal weight is 295 to 300 around the start of October. This is a very realistic goal considering that I am now able to work out three to five days a week. By “working out” I mean running, cycling, weight lifting, volleyball, basketball and swimming. I enjoy all of these activities; although I am not the best basketball player around ;)
I want suggestions on a new anime style wallpaper. Please send them my way. If you want to gain access to my Facebook page, it is located on my contact information page. I also have IRC and discord links up as well. I am waiting on your suggestions!
I have been watching horror movies and Naruto with my girlfriend. It is a lot of fun having someone who likes the same kind of movies and anime that you do! Tonight I rented Night of the Living Dead. The classic zombie movie; fuck your zombie apocalypse shows, this is how real zombies behave! B)
For those people who visit regularly, you will notice that I have a new layout. The menus that were on the right side are now at the bottom of the page. I hope that you like it as much as I do. An update to my contact information: you can get a hold of me via Facebook or IRC, my e-mail is for private and personal use! I have it this way because I was harassed badly and had to change my e-mail to avoid it; for some reason, blocking e-mails didn’t block them. It just sent the messages to my spam folder, so I still GOT them. So if you want to get a hold of me, do so on IRC or Facebook! I still have comments turned off so I don’t get trolled :).
My weight is still going down. I have lost 16 pounds. I am sad to say that I have had 2 cheat days this week… BAD, ALEX! It won’t happen again for a loooooong time! My goal is 310 by August 24th. Wish me luck!
I am going to make another Naruto wallpaper soon–keep on the lookout!
Bye and have a wonderful day!
I have been quite the busy body today. I got up at 9am sharp, got cleaned up, then hit the town. I got on the trolley, rode for 45 minutes to my stop and picked up some cab coupons. With $160 of cab fare in my hand, I waited another 25 minutes for the same trolley to come back around. I rode it back to the hill below my apartment and sweated my butt off as I climbed said hill.
When I got home I popped in some Blue Collar Comedy and spent a few hours laughing my rear end off. Then I played some Ocarina of Time and killed time until a meeting at 4. After the meeting, I spent some time with Ferg watching “Whose Line is it Anyway?”.
Back at my apartment I shaved my beard in the style of a goatee due to request. After I did that and ate dinner I made a new wallpaper; Naruto style! It is of a young Kakashi. I put it on my deviant art account. You can get to it via my contact information page. I may be updating the look of my blog sometime in the future! Here is a small preview of my newly made wallpaper!
I had a case of minor food poisoning the other day. I was cramped on both ends of my GI. When stuff finally got moving, I was puking with a lot of the runs–at the same time. I blame it on a friend’s “Mexican chicken”. It sure was tasty but I will never eat it again. Along with fluid coming out of both ends, I got very dizzy and passed out on the bathroom floor.
On a happier note, the same friend that just about killed me let me borrow some of his stand up collection. I am borrowing all of the Blue Collar videos and 3 of John Pinette’s specials! I am also just about done with Sword Art Online season one!
