  1. I'll probably get there around 2, need to run errands and family time.
  2. I still want him without the hair ...
  3. I find going to the gym to be the biggest hurdle, so I started doing exercise that just involved putting on shoes and stepping outside. Or join the adventure. You can do these body weight exercises anywhere. Just build up gradually so that you don't burn out or hurt yourself.
  4. 5.25 miles run in shorts and a long sleeve shirt! Yay spring! ... if you want I can be the poor peasant running away from the ravening beasts while you all train to fight them.
  5. When training, you don't want to do an exercise "to exhaustion", meaning you couldn't do any more, when you're training. For instance, if you're doing sets of 8 repetitions and you could do 3 but you couldn't do 4, then only do 2. Or if you can run 4 miles but not 5, then only run 3. This way you'll avoid injury and you'll recover fast enough to do it again the next day which is much more important than that extra set. Good luck! I'm not doing the adventure path, but I did do crunches and weight lifting this morning with 20 pounds of baby. And a run today for lunch, it is almost 50 degrees. Woot!
  6. Is that the one sort of diagonally across the street? Yes. The entrance is off the main road (central/pleasant/eastern/Salem/60).
  7. First Official Weigh in for Spring/Summer 2015 231.8 this morning, a new low since I started last May at 270 (chart) On my way to 200!
  8. The only exercise I got in February was shoveling snow. Good for the arms but crummy cardio.
  9. I think when it is well below freezing and dark when I get to and leave from work, my body refuses to drop pounds. It might need them in case of famine or whatever. After nearly 6 months of no change, my weight is finally on a downward trajectory again with daylight savings time and thawed roads to run on. Official weigh-ins will resume tomorrow at about 233 pounds. This year my goal is to lose another 30 pounds, run 1000 miles, and get to under 8:30/mile conversational pace (I can run that now but only for about 3 miles and no talking).
  10. I got mine too. The game looks great. I think the rules could have used a more careful editor but they're not complicated. Looking forward to getting to play this. Of course, unless I can convince my wife to play I'll have to wait a few years for the kid to be old enough.
  11. Yay, there is some chance I'll be able to go. Maybe I'll ask for going to paint day as my birthday gift :)
  12. If we do Hobby Bunker (please!) it is just off the orange line at Malden Center. It is also walking distance from my house. So, if we do Hobby Bunker, I could probably actually come for a little while.
  13. I really like that figure. I did mine with Christmas Wreath and Holly Red. I like your look.
  14. I think delivery is in June, and stonehaven is punctual, so by ks standards that is much closer than SOON.
  15. Going the wrong direction, almost to Maine now.
  16. Which size triangle are people using for their Gamut? I'm having a lot of fun just moving the triangle around. Some day I may even find time to paint again.
  17. AWESOME!!!! And speaking as the proud father of an infant half-troll (he gets the Troll from me, we aren't puny like orcs), I love the background story.
  18. Great skin! It is a shame there is no back picture for the gargoyle troll. Things like trolls aren't very genetically chosey so they get a lot of variety of phenotype.
  19. I like the flying critter and great idea to stick him to the stalagmite (I was debating a flying base or "else" for him and I'm just going to steal your idea). I was watching the Jen and Anne DVD last night and the wet blending technique as Anne describes it, which I think is different than how some others do it, seems like a neat technique to try with this kind of color challenge.
  20. I've got sooo many of these to paint and haven't even opened the boxes yet :( Love the straws on the base.
  21. Well there is cold, and there is below 0F with 4+ feet of snow on the ground. Had a really nice lunch run today now that things are starting to thaw. It is daylight savings time and time to get back to losing weight. I dropped 30 pounds last summer and then completely flat since the baby arrived late last august. Hopefully I can drop another 30 this summer and then I'll be pretty much my goal weight and build.
  22. Copied to my inspiration directory for when I get around to painting one of these.
  23. There is a light molding paste and a medium molding paste ... which do you use? Not that I'm taking notes of everything you do any immediately trying to replicate it or anything.
