Enjoying a stogie, brewski, and makers markski.
Which means I’m probably gonna catch a good buzzski.
Also I’m the only white dude here. Which, you know, I’m cool with. Really. No worries. It’s literally a “do you mind if we dance with your dates” moment.
You sir, have a lot of raffle tickets…
I’m fixin ta win…….something.
So, like, those of you who have met me know that I am old and fat. Working from home last year just made things worse - older and fatter. Both. Two hundred ****ing fifty pounds. And I fly a light sport aircraft. How does that work...
Anyhow, eliminating some **** from what I eat every day and a three to four mile walk at lunchtime at work. But most places to walk around here are pretty boring.
Solution: https://librivox.org/ over 15,000 audio books for free. Can't beat that with a stick.
Scale said 236 last night.
Good suggestion. The major problem I have with exercise is boredom. I've tried watching movies and such, but frankly I've pretty much seen everything I want to watch. 99% of what I see now really isn't worth the time to watch it.
I have the exact same problem. I am literally incapable of doing physical exercise purely for exercise. My mind has to be integrated into it and walking on a treadmill that shows me scenes of a trail won’t cut it.
I am a gamer and what I really want is a total body game sim, so that when for example I’m fighting with a sword I have to actually be swinging a “sword” around, and when I run from wild animals I have to actually run. A total immersion virtual reality. I would get tons of exercise and not even notice I’m exercising.
You guys bored with cardio should consider trying weightlifting. A convincing argument can be made that it's more useful for extending quality of life than cardio, and more critically for me, it's challenging. The work comes in short bursts rather than hours of grinding. Keeping track of personal records quickly becomes addicting. Pulling a 450 lb barbell off the floor is the most powerful I've ever felt, and all I can think of now is getting to 500.
Weightlifting is like cario, but it hurts longer.
Meh. The first week is hard but if you are consistent you don't really get the soreness after that. An hour 3x a week. It's like a cheat code for life... everything gets lighter.
eh, I lifted weights for 4 months straight, 4x/week. lost maybe 2 pounds and didn't gain any muscle. I stopped for 2-3 weeks and gained like 7 pounds. pretty annoying, but I guess it beats being lazy.
I believe that's called "sports".
(especially the part about fencing and bullfighting)
Jump the fence at the zoo. You’ll get lots of exercising.
I’ve often wondered why they never made a tail dragger version of the RV10…
Sounds awfully boring. At least an action movie. Or a good book to get lost in. But scenes of a trail? Who thinks of stuff like this.
For some reason, I can't rent any planes next week - they're all taken for overnights. I wonder what is going on next week.....................
I've entered a new age category.
1) My new CFII and I were chatting, and I said how my wife and I went to the local town square recently for their festival. "Oh yeah, my parents do that too".
2) At the dentist, and the dental assistant asks about my kids. "Hey, I'm exactly the same age as your middle daughter!"
3) Chatting with a receptionist, and I compliment her by saying she looks similar to "Erin" character from the Office. She says "Hey, you look just like one of my father's old friends".
Bah. Now where is that coupon for the Golden Corral. It's past 4:00, and I'm late for the dinner crowd...................
Try Thai boxing or any kind of boxing. Scales well to any fitness level, minimal equipment and the best places incorporate strength training. Opposite of boring!
Depending on the fence you jump, you can almost instantly lose a bunch of weight too. But that will most likely come after the exercising has ended..
Buy an Oculus Quest. It only tracks your head and your feet, so you can't go running, but you can use up a lot of energy waving your arms around and dodging things.
Beat Saber is a high energy lightsaber cuttings things up game: (Try not to be put off by Jimmy Fallon)
Pistol Whip is like John Wick crossed with Max Headroom: - not as energetic as beat saber, but I found it still made me sweat
Creed: Road to Glory is basically a boxing game. I didn't really like the feeling of having someone try to punch me in the face, but there's a free demo so you can see if it's for you.
There's loads of other games as well.
I told my kids weeks ago that "the airplane is delicate... it's basically made of aluminum foil so be gentle with it". Apparently that stuck with my 12 yo, because she just spent two days building this out of popsicle sticks & foil. I'm going to take her to osh and have them teach her to drive rivets... maybe she'll build me an rv-10.
It looked like a mooney before she covered it, but I guess it's more of a belanca with the wood spars.
I told her it would definitely fly with enough horsepower...
I missed out on “IBTL” on that other thread.
I had a dark chocolate kit kat, it was pretty good
Anything will fly with enough horsepower. I think Bezos just proved that.
Got a new toy! Diet is postponed until further notice!
Got the meat sweats before I even took a bite! Lol.
what time does the party start?
I can taste that picture
If work settles down between now and then, Im going to try to make rough river next year.. I’ll bring a brisket and maybe a pork butt. New guy buy in!
"New guy has to cook" seems to be a tradition.
Interesting NOTAM, thinking about going to check it out……free light show!
Surf Air put in an order for 150 Grand Caravans.
How come they can get such a good deal? Why is it Cessna is willing to sell them a C208 for 150 Grand while the rest of us have to pay 8-10 times that much?
Just heard & saw b25 "georgia mae" fly over on its way north.
Drinking a PBR
Watching ADSB Exchange
Listening to Fisk Approach
Browsing POA & Faceballs
Just finished dinner
You left a lot on your plate
Mrs Jim K: You burnt the meat, what happened?
Jim K: I was listening to Fisk and they shut off arrivals. Said there was an accident. Then someone piped in and said a Mooney belly’d it in. Then a post came in on POA and said it was @eman1200. I said OMG, it can’t be so I posted and asked, is that true. Then @Sac Arrow posted and said, it’s a lie, that wasn’t me. By then I needed a beer but the cooler was empty. So I ran to the garage to get more PBR’s outta the reefer. On the way back I stubbed my toe on a rock, fell and broke all the beers. By the time I got more and got back the roast was toast.
Mrs Jim K: I told you not to wear sandals when you are BBQing. It’s ok, I brought some Cole Slaw out. We’ll scrap off the burnt crusty stuff, shred it and make Samiches out of it.
That definitely happened in an alternate universe.
In the run of the simulation I'm currently experiencing the pork was excellent and I ate too much. No coleslaw either
