    • Fitness: April Foolishness!

      1 month ago

      TDBTyler

      So, firstly, I have to apologize for the updates of the previous two journals. Apparently the servers went down on the image hosting website I previously used... I didn't realize fixing the images would update everyone on this website >.<


      So, April was weird, last week I broke my big toe whilst on the way to a work meeting... that surprisingly made push-ups awful. I still worked through it... probably shouldn't have.


      xr0zTsT.png


      From the 1st to the 31st of Jan:   977 Push-ups & 1054 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 28th of Feb: 1094 Push-ups & 1299 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 31st of Mar: 1275 Push-ups & 1811 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 30th of Apr: 1317 Push-ups & 2156 Sit-ups


      The aforementioned broken toe also caused a break in 'Wk 17'.

      Also just got to point out, Bicep Curls with the additional 3.3 pounds of weight, ouch >.< I'm getting used to it now but it took a while to adjust!


      As always here is a link to further details: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCpJTL103_IpKR7E2O-2TLZB5_I-bdWLfPJRqZt9A50 next up, May ^-^


    • Fitness: Marching On!

      1 month ago

      TDBTyler

      (Let me start this by saying I am in no way a professional when it comes to fitness or exercising.

      I feel I have a little responsibility to say this because people have let me know that they like the spreadsheet idea when it comes to tracking exercises, which is fantastic! ^-^

      But don't, in any way, feel pressured to follow the same workout as me or anyone else... you do you!

      Don't exert yourself by pushing too hard too soon, that only results in injury... and that feels like shit >.<)


      Beside that... I didn't realize until after my work-out today that I didn't do an update for March. I may be improving my physical health but I'm still a forgetful sod.

      From the 1st to the 31st of Jan:   977 Push-ups & 1054 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 28th of Feb: 1094 Push-ups & 1299 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 30th of Mar: 1275 Push-ups & 1811 Sit-ups


      Been pushing the intensity of my Sit-up reps while I'm stuck in a slow build for Push-ups.


      With the Biceps I decided today to up the weights I'm lifting. 

      Going from 13.2 pounds to 16.5 pounds. 

      The increase may not appear big but after slowly lifting that weight 83 times today... I can tell you there's a big difference. The ugly faces certainly happened. But hey-ho, babysteps >.<


      For additional details check the spreadsheet in full here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCpJTL103_IpKR7E2O-2TLZB5_I-bdWLfPJRqZt9A50/edit#gid=0 and have a nice day!

    • Fitness: Past February!

      1 month ago

      TDBTyler

      Yep still going ^-^ I'm actually amazed that I haven't got lazy with this exercising routine. Maybe the spreadsheet does help more than I initially thought.


      Only missed one usual day of exercise, in Week 6 I had to move my workout sessions across a day because a dentist had removed my last baby tooth that Wednesday. A baby tooth! I'm not kidding, because it was trapped by it's neighbors I was surprised at the amount of painkillers needed to get over the extraction, physical exertion was not advised during that day haha!


      GeR7TGG.png


      From the 1st to the 31st of January: 977 Push-ups & 1054 Sit-ups

      From the 1st to the 28th of February: 1094 Push-ups & 1299 Sit-ups


      So in our smallest month, breaking 4 digits in all my recorded exercises?... it just seems surreal (for the record I just managed 1001 Curls haha)


      For the additional details here's where I track my sessions: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCpJTL103_IpKR7E2O-2TLZB5_I-bdWLfPJRqZt9A50/edit#gid=0

      The only thing excluded from the spreadsheet is the length of rest-times between each rep, so don't assume I'm doing 128 Sit-ups in one go!

      On Mondays I get a 60 second rest after each rep,

      Wednesdays I get a 90 second rest after each rep,

      & on Fridays I get a 120 second rest after each rep!

      As the reps increase the rest times do accordingly.


      Gotta say, it feels a lot better than what I'd usually do... just sitting around.


    • Fitness: Keeping it going!

      4 months ago

      TDBTyler

      I've definitely hit some sort of plateau with the exercises that I'm recording, however, the positive is that I've got myself back to the level I was pushing at before the bug hit me back in December.


      Fitness2.png


      Can't be upset by those numbers!

      From the 1st to the 31st of January:

      977 Push-ups & 1054 Sit-ups,


      Of-course these aren't done in one go, I definitely couldn't achieve consecutive 92 Push-Ups, there are small 1-2 minute long breaks between the reps that I have listed in more detail here:
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCpJTL103_IpKR7E2O-2TLZB5_I-bdWLfPJRqZt9A50/edit?usp=sharing


      Back in Week 3 I was literally a sweaty, out-of-breath, exhausted mess and I needed a good 10 minutes to recover from my main workout on the Friday.
      Today, however, I did my workout, jumped in shower (after all I was still a sweaty mess), then went straight to a meeting in town.


      So calling it a plateau is kinda unfair. Progress isn't always in the numbers ^-^ now I just gotta keep this up!

    • Keeping myself fit!

      5 months ago

      TDBTyler

      First things first, this is not some sort of New Year's Resolution. Okay, well part of it is.


      I've been exercising with a lot more purpose throughout the last half of 2017. 

      Around December my exercising took a bit of a knock due to a typical case of the sniffles! (Well, it wasn't just the sniffles, but you get my point, right?)

      I'm hoping that keeping track of my exercising online motivates me to keep it all going.

      I don't want to let my progress slip. So that's somewhat my resolution: not stopping what's been very beneficial to my health and well-being ^-^

      More Details here - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCpJTL103_IpKR7E2O-2TLZB5_I-bdWLfPJRqZt9A50/edit?usp=sharing


      I gotta say it's helped a lot to simply see something like... I've done 331 Push Ups in the past two weeks. It just doesn't seem right o.o


      The only frustrating thing is that I've lost 2lbs... I'm trying really hard to go the other way dammit! xD


      Things to note, I haven't put records of other exercises on there because... keeping records of these ones seem obsessive enough. Plus, I don't particularly want to time Planks (heck, I hate Planks enough as it is, I don't want to do them at all lol) or make a big deal out of something like bike rides or squats, they are a bit more free-form and I'm too lazy to find a pen and track those in my notebook haha


      So I may be updating this on a fortnightly basis, if I stop at any point (without good reason) I'm giving y'all full permission to get on my case about it.


      Have a good day everyone ^-^

    • What's your RPG Class?

      1 year ago

      TDBTyler

      You find yourself hidden away as a playable character in an RPG, any RPG. What class do you hope your character has?


      final-fantasy-tactics-the-best-and-worst


      I'd have to go with either Bard or Cleric


      Cleric mainly because of my actual habits in gaming: 

      I'm a Holy Priest in WoW, which heals things, 

      I'm a nuisance when playing as a Cleric in Happy Wars, which heals things and 

      I'm either Mercy or Lúcio in OverWatch... you get the picture, I seem to prefer to heal people than do damage xD


      and Bard simply due to the fact that I dabble with music all the time, if I was more of a diva I'd go with Songstress but I don't think I'd do a dress like this justice, even in the virtual world:

    • WoW Journal 2 - What I have done!

      1 year ago

      TDBTyler

      My very late follow-up of my World of Warcraft journal: 'WoW Journal 1 - What have I done?!'


      3 months ago I picked up the game and knew pretty much nothing about WoW. I made a trial character named 'Auburne' in the European Servers and derped about a bit... but now?


      Now I have 'Emaryllis', a Level 100 character in the US Servers!Emar1001.png



      No, this isn't a character that I just paid to boost to Lvl100, I worked hard for this!

      Good ol' fashioned grinding (Confession: The only boosting that happened was from Lvl92 to Lvl93 when I did a few instances with Gaff and Talumar, thanks for that guys ^-^)... oh, oh and I have proof from a rushed screenshot that I earned it haha:Emar1002.png


      So cheers for that Shieldmaiden Iounn!


      Huge thanks to: Talumar, for not only putting up with my never-ending stream of questions regarding this game... but for letting me know about the Auctionator! Oh boy! It's helped a lot! Gaff, for throwing me into this game in the first place, I know I know, I should have listened to you months before when you suggested it... but I'm playing it now, that's what matters :P and thanks for filling in my gaps of knowledge about the Horde's side of the lore haha

      and Reekers, for swapblasting me into hazardous places for keeping me entertained/awake during the rare times we're online at the same time, at like 2am!


      It's been so fun fishing! exploring the world and really getting my head around this game. Though I will admit I spent like 30% of the time playing the Auction House game! Getting that gold by selling overpriced fish and cloths yo!

      giphy.gifCan't wait to get knee-deep into the end-game stuff... I know I'm kinda in the last stretch level-wise (Level cap is Lvl110) but I've only really just stepped into Legion and I've overheard there's much, much more! Heck there's a ton of stuff that I know I've skipped past in order to level up quicker! I'll get to go back and indulge with a crazily over-leveled character one day though haha


      Can't wait to go back to Tranquillien, as a Lvl110, just to wonder around Ghostlands to land a million damage on that fucker Knucklerot who embarrassingly whooped my ass all over the place when I was a noob. He's on top of my Kill Bill list for sure.

    • Mood: Conflicted (Why I might not be attending RTX2017)

      1 year ago

      TDBTyler

      It's no secret that I've wanted to attend RTX for the past 3-4 years. At the time I was a penniless student that was really treading water when it came to grades, so I simply couldn't afford to go.


      Now, however, I've graduated and I've saved for over a year up to ensure I can go to an RTX event.


      So what's the problem?


      For the last few months I've been telling close-friends on this site that whether or not I'll be going is completely up in the air and that I've been waiting on the paperwork (the forms for the passport application and stuff)... but... I have the forms, they are 90% completed, the form has been on my desk for months.


      One section is incomplete and it directly places me in a dilemma that I'd much rather avoid... but, you know, fuck it, yay for drama.


      The one section is directly about the Parent's details... and... you guessed it, they are refusing to assist me with it.


      I can fill it out; I know all of the information necessary. What's driving me insane though is they've out-right told me that they don't approve of me going, I can fill it out, but they made it clear as crystal they don't want me to get a passport.


      It's not even the whole idea of meeting people from the internet, it's not that kind of deal. They simply don't want me to travel that kinda distance... they say I rarely go out in my hometown, now I want to travel to the other side of the world? I'm aware that's a big jump but the activities I can do in my hometown? Drinking/Clubbing/Gambling... I'm not particularly fond of any of those.


      I get why they are worried... but... what am I supposed to do? Spend the rest of my life in my fucking hometown? I'm planning on spending 1 or 2 weeks in Texas, using my own money... that's it.


      So here's what I got to deal with, either:

      A - Disappoint a lot of people I've had the pleasure of meeting on this site that I consider really close friends. That have supported, motivated and inspired me for years!

      or

      B - Disappoint my loving family that has supported me my entire life.


      I want to simply say "fuck it", fill out the form, and be done with it.

      However I'm left with this growing weight of guilt, it just feels like I'm going to betray them by doing that and as a result face a bunch of repercussions simply by wanting to go to RTX.


      I didn't think the idea of being an adult means betraying the people you respected the most for your entire life.


      I just don't know what to do to and I'm afraid I'll settle with doing nothing, then deeply regret it months later.

    • A Cautionary Tale about Water.

      1 year ago

      TDBTyler

      To everyone out there that uses a lot of tech, a cautionary tale.


      Keep water bottles off your desk. Heck, keep water bottles on the other-side of the room.


      Earlier today I may have had a mini panic-attack.


      Whilst drinking from a 500ml bottle, between sips so the bottle doesn't have it's lid on, I get slightly knocked. Only about an eighth of the water left the bottle but the water that did leave my bottle landed on:

      My Mac's monitor, my Mac's keyboard, my laptop's keyboard, my microphone (thankfully with it's wind shield on), the top of my audio interface, my Elgato and it just missed one of my USB sticks (everything was backed up already but... still).


      So in one single second, tap water nearly did hundreds of dollars worth of damage.

      Thankfully everything is working fine. You should have seen how fast I reacted... I've never found roll of paper towels quicker.


      But yeah, water bottles near desks, not even once!

    • Diagnosed with Asperger's

      1 year ago

      TDBTyler

      Let it be known that 2016 is the year I got diagnosed with two different syndromes: Gilbert's and Asperger's. Anyone care to discover a third for me?


      9cf19aa3f6326e2d0c8d3d190124df058d620d00


      Before anyone says, "Yeah yeah, whatever, self-diagnosis doesn't count" It's not. I've waited months for an appointment from a Doctor that specializes in Autism related studies and after hours of examining me they concluded today that I most definitely have Asperger's.


      So, what does that mean?


      In all honesty nothing. This is something I've lived with, so if you know me quite well already it's not really going to be much of a shock.


      However it does highlight how my brain functions. In a nutshell, I can spend hours on mundane tasks but on-the-other-hand I can be a pain to socialize with and can make any moment of interaction awkward.


      After giving me the results the Doctor noted there was a Red Herring while I was being diagnosed. Despite being unwavering on my mental condition, what threw them a curve-ball was my speech. It's apparently the norm for there to be difficulties in speech from controlling intonation and velocity (don't quote me on this, I've done no research on the syndrome, this is just what the Doctor told me) and speech often appears to be flat, however I didn't struggle with that at all.


      So yeah. I guess that's why people didn't throw me at therapists during my childhood.


      Anyhow, I would like to informally lay out a blanket of apologies to anyone that may have been caught off-guard by my poor social skills, or if I've offended you by accident, or if I've made an entire situation awkward. Sorry.


      After a little guidance I hope to utilize the condition into something useful/creative, both in my work-life and as a hobby.

      Warm Fuzzy: I don't know where to start. I could talk about the awesome community projects you're doing now (looking forward to what you've done with my bastard of a troll intro), or the tenure you had as Show-runner of the Latecomers, or even the YouTube channel you have with TDBTom. But, I think the thing that I like the most is that every time I came onto Rooster Speak, no matter what, you'd always say hello. It helped immensely with the social anxiety I'd been going through at the time. So... uh, yeah. Thanks a bunch.

      Alright so I'm making an attempt at an intro for the podcast, I've got a pretty good plan right now but executing it is proving to be a little difficult. I know you know how to edit so you might be able to help; any ideas on how to remove a kinda hollow metallic sound from a recording?

      Normally talking like Soundwave would be cool, but it isn't helping at the moment.

      • TDBTyler

        4 years ago

        Hahaha Good Luck, the metallic sound is a big pain for me lol, it's fixable... with a ton of effort though, re-recording is probably the quicker option

      • SickDemon

        4 years ago

        If I wasn't a perfectionist, it would probably be fine as it is, but I'm going to try to re-record the problem spot. If nothing else, I'll have learned how to edit by summers end. smiley4.gif

      • TDBTyler

        4 years ago

        That metallic sound is a pain, unfortunately I'd have to see it to fiddle around with my obsessive audio editing tools in order to try and remove it myself. It's hard to deal with audio issues and give advice without actually hearing them yourself... you know?
        But it's awesome you're making an intro lad :D

        I'm only familiar with a few JPop artists, I haven't been exposed to it as much as KPop but it's still good
