This morning I did a workout, which consisted of the usual cable crossovers
and chest dips
(using my kitchen sink, with my legs propped up on the kitchen counter, if you can visualize that). I also tried doing some neck exercises
(this GIF was just 1 of 4, 4 meaning exercising your neck in the 4 cardinal directions), but nothing major, since I'm still learning to do these. I also tried doing some calf raises
as well, a muscle that I haven't used in a long time.
Unfortunately I screwed up my fast about 11 hours in by doing this, as I was to find out later that you want to do your workout towards the end
of your fasting period, not in the middle of it, like I did. So, because the "towards the end" part of my fast is when I'll be sleeping this makes it unfeasible to pull off. <Oops!>
I drank an emergency protein powder & unsweetened almond milk concoction I've been trying out recently in response to this. So from here on out my workouts will be back to their usual time, typically Monday morning right when I get home from work.
Did another streaming commentary video
this morning as well, about the basics of streaming, but got cut short, due to laundry being ready.No thanks, Death. I hardly even think about those anymore. I've had a lot of those back in the day, but I also never expected to see the age of 48 either. But now that I'm here I'd like to see how much farther I can go. So, you can keep it.
And for this evening's stream it was Grim Dawn
. And like usual I played my reaper class
(reaper class = FF XIV ninja + dark knight), working on, and eventually completing, Act 3. And once that was completed, I embarked on Act 4. And I managed to get a good way into the act when I had to shut down because I was nodding off, due to bad sleep (sinus infection). Shit happens. -_-
And the vinyl records I played for this session were:
Pink Floyd - The Endless River
The Dubliners - More of the Hard Stuff
Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker
Sonny Rollins - StandardsWednesday
So, for my Pinball stream
this morning it was a mixed bag. The Pinball FX3 part of the stream went mediocre. But the Pinball Arcade part of it went great
, especially on Black Hole
and Monster Bash
, where I beat both of those high scores. Yes!
A good 21.5-hour fast last night/this morning, causing me to lose a pound (149 now) and I lost another quarter inch on my gut (33.5" right now). Making progress!
And today's FF XIV
session was my usual dancer leveling, running hunts and Pixie beast quests. Ran a couple roulettes as well. Got the Lost City of Ampador, where they were stuck at the last boss, Diabolos. Apparently nobody
knew the fight mechanics, and after a couple of wipes, and as I didn't have any time - this is a worknight; I'd have more time if this was an off night, and I did look at a guide
, but at a glance it looked like we were fighting a raid boss, definitely no time for that! - I just went ahead and dropped out of the run. But after that, the other roulettes (Sohm Ai & Hell's Lid) went alright.
And I managed to obtain level 77, after which I worked on making and selling glamour prisms to wind down the session.
The LP vinyi that I played this session were:
Kraftwerk - Radio-Activity
Tom Waits - Swordfishtrombones
Joe Satriani - Surfing With the Alien
Bill Cosby - Revenge
Okey dokey then. Time for a nap, then I gotta start getting ready for work. Thanks for reading/watching, everybody. And have a good day/night. ;)>Why I Stream.
