I had a lovely night of catching up with friends that I can never seem to get enough time with.
also, I managed to:
“you’ll scare guys off with that feminist crap”
oh i’m sorry
the kind of guy who has problems with me...
Initially, the whole idea if clean eating and dedicated exercise just do not appeal. But then I remember it’s not a diet but a lifestyle. A...
My life has been a bit crazy this summer. Work is winding down (which means there is so much to do before I go considering they don’t plan to hire...
:-O!!! You aren’t apologetic!? But you seem so nice and understanding.
I guess I should have said I won’t apologize for posting things because they’re a part of my personality and people deem it offensive to them or inappropriate fr their dashboards.
Apologizing for such things has never been in my nature.
Understanding and nice, totally is though.
I’ve come to realize this has turned into a blog.
Sure, I do talk about some fit related things. Mostly that I swing a sword about while dressed in a piece of linen and quite a bit of leather.
Outside of that, I’m a 26 year old guy who sometimes does 26 year old things.
Things you will find on this blog:
I might be offensive sometimes. Going to admit I’m not very apologetic, I don’t really care enough to be one.
Its okay if you are half naked. I can’t show such lovely lady goods.
True. And you did need sleep. Still, next time! We actually plan to do one some time during the fourth of July weekend. I owe Kelsey a drunken vidchat since apparently 3 shots of moonshine and 8 oz of 180 proof everclear do nothing for me.
…I’ll still probably be half naked. Booze makes me overheat.
I don’t make waffles unless I’m at a hotel :P But bite size stuff is always fun! I bring dried fruits too. Meaty eggrolls sound awesome!
We won’t be at a hotel, we’ve actually got a condo for the week, which is really exciting because we’ll be eating real food, and it’s a 10 minute walk to the convention center.
Have you ever put hash browns in a waffle maker? It’s amazing and tasty. Then I top it with cheese and bacon.
…I shouldn’t be this hungry before I go out cycling…
I had sword practice with my friends this morning/a little past noon.
Ever since my 2 weeks of hard training a while back, I’ve actually upped my weighted training sessions, pretty much doing them every morning I could and adding a little more weight. A half pound, but when you’re going through motions and actions over and over for an hour, at least, it makes a difference.
I hadn’t been able to practice with my friends since they watched that final match, so I was excited to see the changes.
The standard practice sword ranges from 1.5 pounds to about 2.3 lbs, depending on the wood it was carved from and the ranging densities of wood depending on the part of the tree it came from.
I’ve been practicing with a 5 lbs sword for the past few weeks, used to the way the weight moved in my hands. Let me tell you, it makes a difference.
If I was fast before, now I’m The Flash. Parries come easily as the practice sword feels like nothing in my hands. My muscles feel no strain as I move faster and faster, knocking away thrusts, turn away slashes and even once stopped a spear like thrust with the flat end of my weapon.
Life is good. I’m a tiny, bearded god of war.
Why does glass art sound like a good idea right now?
Because blowtorch. That’s right.
…if I can’t type in the morning, I’ve lost my fingers in a horrible, fiery accident.
I like making mini pancakes for field days. So mini waffles would be BETTER!
Ooo…that might work, but waffles get soggy after a while, don’t they?
And this is supposed to be a set of snacks my friends can munch on while they work because they won’t have time to pause and eat a proper meal.
I was thinking of doing little bite sized things like corn dog muffins, cup cake sized shepard’s pies, maybe meaty egg rolls. Things like that. Protein and carbs to keep them going and I’ll pack some fruit to keep their sugar levels high.
So, I’m going to be at a con 2 weeks from now, and if you’ve ever gone to a convention, you know people tend not to eat well while there. You eat junk food or you end up not eating much at all.
But we did something awesome. We decided to rent a condo for the week, within walking distance of the convention center and it has a full kitchen!
Now I’m trying to figure out how to make small meals that will sate the stomachs of my friends.
What would you want to eat if you had someone who could make practically anything, but it would be small meals to much on, not huge things to get you through hours of not eating?
My knees have been giving me issues, so, low impact it is!
