So today was leg day at the gym. Well more like chest, delt, tricep and leg day. My chest feels fine as of now, but my delts and triceps are feeling it. My legs and glutes are especially cooked at this moment. I can’t wait until tomorrow when it hurts to sit on the toilet and poop! I had to climb some stairs around an hour after my workout… total pain ensued. I totally hate leg day, but I have to if I want my leg press and squat to go up. I couldn’t do bench press today because NOBODY knows how to spot in that God forsaken gym I go to… I am switching gyms soon. I had to use the “chest press” machine. I prefer free weights unless it’s something like lat pull down or leg press. My favorite exercises are bench press, lat pull down and deadlift. I stopped lifting for a few years; I am slowly getting my strength back. In high school I maxed 405 pounds on bench press; worked out 5×5 with 335 pounds.
My girlfriend, A, and I are binging the Saw series. We are about to start 4 soon. We like horror movies :). I am also getting into Paper Mario, Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy XV!
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!
First day of June and the summer weather has been hitting it very hard for a few weeks. Here in town the temperature is 90°F with a heat index of 97°F. The humidity is low for here: 55%; it still feels muggy as hell, though. In early May, the temperatures were running a nice 65°F to 75°F. Why is it so damn hot this early in June, and what happened to my spring? I suppose it is kind of good to skip the brunt of allergy season (although I still have a cough). I am hoping for a visit to my extended family up in Kansas City, MO late this month. I have some meetings and appointments, so I hope we can work out something to spend a week or so to see my family! The weather up in KC seems to be just like it is right here in town. I can hardly wait!
I have been binging Naruto over the past couple of weeks. I am on episode 91. I’m not going to talk about it to prevent spoilers just in case anyone who reads this forsaken blog won’t get hit with spoilers. A friend of mine gave me Sword Art Online and High School DxD. When I get bored of watching Naruto, which I doubt will happen soon, I will pop in a few episodes of these shows just to check them out.
I am level 68, almost 69, in AION. The grinding has gotten very slow over the past few weeks. I hope to make 70 eventually. When I get my main character to 70, I will beef up my alt character. The level cap is 75, but 70 will suffice my needs for now. Fatty tracker will be online this Sunday for those who are interested in my progress. It won’t be much at first because it has only been a week. Give it time and I plan on owning this thing! B)
This past month has had its ups and downs. I have not been out and about so much this month as I would like to be. I have been playing a lot of games. I am pretty much off of Fallout 4; the computer hacking isn’t up to my tastes. I have been mostly playing AION. I recently got a copy of Final Fantasy XV. I am ashamed to say that I have not begun gameplay as I also acquired a the first series of Naruto and am watching that!
I got back into chess club last Sunday. I came out 4-1-2! That broke down to 2 checkmates, 2 forced to resign to me, one loss and 2 stalemates. Not too shabby if I must say; I could have done better if my opponents weren’t so damn good at the game.
Ferg is trying to help me to learn German. I am not giving up on my Japanese studies! I also need to work on my English; I am fluent in it as I was raised in the United States, but my mental condition sort of “hinders” my speech in a way that makes me very hard to understand! So I am working on two foreign languages and my spoken English. Wish me luck!
Much thanks to my friend, Sam, for getting me hooked on yet another MMO. This one is different from TERA or Aura Kingdom. As a matter of fact, it reminds me of World of Warcraft, except it is free to play (but there are still purchasable items in the game). The game is called AION. To really get into the game, you will have to learn how to use the map and fast travel system. It took me a day or so to fully understand it all, but I get it now! There are two factions, six classes with eleven specialty subclasses to “ascend” to. The factions are basically dark and light. If you are interested at all, the classes and ascended classes are located here. My character is a level 43 assassin; I am pretty much a rogue! If you are interested, check out the website here!
Sam also wants me to try out World of Warships. I doubt that I will be that much into it as I am not a fan of much military games over RPGs, especially an RPG that I just recently got hooked on to!
I am on the hunt for English subtitles for the anime Comic Girls. I have tried subscene where I usually get my subtitles, but all they have are Arabic and Farsi/Persian. I am having one hell of a time locating the English versions!
I am going to play some AION tonight after I finish updating World of Warships u_u…
