Day 30 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Yay!  Day 30 is here!  I'm so exhausted, 30 days strait with no break!  I'm not really sure how I got through it all but I'm thankful that I did!  One day at a time was really all it took, and some interesting maneuvering!
     Bike ride was uneventful today!  Kinda boring yet exhilarating all at the same time.  A different route every day also means not doing the routes that are supper fun.   There are only so many hills you can take until your on flat land exploring those boring areas!  I'd film them all and post them except no one is really watching them and I don't want to bore people to death with a flat land ride!  Once spring is here and I make it to the mountains, I'll film that stuff and post it up to some cool tunes.
     Maintained weight today, so It looks like I'll finish out my 30 days with a 20 pound weight loss!  :)  Happy I lost 20, not happy I didn't lose 30 or 60.  That would have been Ideal.  You would think I'd lose a lot more considering what I went through.  Oh well, I'll just have too keep at it!
     Finished a Lobo picture I was working on as well.  It looks sweet.  Lobo Is my favorite Good guy/Bad guy. Unstoppable except for his word.  If he promises something, he always follows through, even if it's to his detriment!  I can not wait for the movie!
     Last day Yay.  Well tomorrow will be a busy day as I compile videos and finish stuff off!  I'll be updating as I go along so stay tuned!  Lots more to come, and then I'll start a new project.

Day 29 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Well, so far I have lost a total of 20 pounds in 28 days! :)  I'm happy with it even though I wanted to lose 30 this month.  Looks like I'll have to keep going with the exercising until I reach my Ideal weight of 240lbs.
     Today it was hella cold out there riding my bike.  I'm not a big fan of cold bike rides.  I can not wait until spring.  This spring I'm gonna ride down Whistler mountain.  I heard they have chair lifts for bikes in the summer!  I'll probably spend a lot of time up there!  Going downhill riding from the top of a mountain is like being in touch with god as your passenger!  Can't wait!
     I made a new picture in Photo shop today!  Check it out on twit pics!  It's a picture of Oboma thumbs uping my You Tube account!  I doctored that photo really good!

Day 28 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Today was a sweet day!  I couldn't help myself and just had to go through the comic and graphic novels that I bought.  There are some excellent finds.  I'm sure that I'll more than triple my investment!
     Went for a bike ride this morning even though I had a slight headache.  Once I got back the headache disappeared.  I guess that exercise cures headaches.  Raining so no footage today!
     Well only a few days left of my challenge.  Thank god for that.  I'm so gonna look forward to relaxing over the holidays.  After that, I'll let everyone know what I'm up to.  Maybe a smaller challenge of sorts.  I may have to go and get a job, so maybe I'll work something into that.  We will see.
     Anyways, I feel like I'm gaining weight now from working out.  Much more defined since this all started.  I'm no supermodel yet, but I sure feel a lot healthier!  :)  One day, I may be able to lift my car.  If I can, I will record it and share it with the world!  lol You Tube.  So much fun.

Day 27 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Yay, My truck still isn't here!  Hey don't judge me, I'm trying to stay positive about it!  Even though I'm positive that it still sucks! Lmao.  Called the cops today and good thing to because they had the police file number wrong!  What a bunch of douche bags.  Now to call insurance and let them know.  Now that thats done.....It's just time to wait around for outside info.  I did get some good news.  The police station receptionist said that 85% of vehicles are found within a week of being stolen.  So lets all cross our fingers!
     I was reading a story about people hired to be military trackers today.  It turns out that if you have long hair and are a tracker you are Awesome.  But if the military cuts your hair, you will suck at tracking.  It has something to do with sensory enhancement?  Weird huh, I thought so, and i talk about it in my head shave video today!
     Hanging out with Christian and Trent today!  We will be going to an Auction sale for a comic book store that got closed down.  I hope to find some good finds!  Wish me luck chicken ducks!
     Well, I had a fantastic time with Trent, and Christian.  I also bought two boxes of graphic novels and 6 small boxes of rare comics!  NICE!  I am stoked!  I'll go through them and such as time permits so stay tuned to find out what I got and what some of the Gems are worth!
     Anyways, I still gotta go play my Beta game to stay up with my challenges so see you guys tomorrow!

Day 26 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Truck is still gone! :(  Oh well, Karma will come back to bite that guy in the ass one day!  I sure hope I don't find my truck before the cops do.  I've been out searching everywhere I can.  The guy who looked at my truck I went by his house today to see if it was around there.  Yup, all I had to go on was his name, and I found his house.  No truck in site.  Have you ever heard of the old saying that if you stay in one place long enough the whole world will cross paths with you?  Well that's what I'm gonna do now, just keep my eyes open and one day my truck will cross paths with me again.
     I visited Ken and Christian today and had lunch with them.  We had a great talk about conspiracies, 2012, and aliens!  That's always fun.
     Now it's on to the rest of my challenges.  Fun fun fun.  when your a little depressed though it's not as much fun, blaaa.  On a happy note insurance will probably settle within a few weeks.  I hope so.
     On to bigger and better things!

Day 25 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Well, I woke up today to find that my truck was stolen!  I called the police to find out if it was impounded, which it was not.  Then reported it stolen with them.  I then called my insurance company and filed that report.  They told me because I'm living in B.C. that I wouldn't be covered.  I said, Hold on one sec, I told my insurance provided what I was doing and that I was keeping insurance on it until it sold.  She told me it was OK to leave it on for this purpose as long as I wasn't driving it around.  So they told me that I was covered for now, and that an adjuster would probably call me on Friday to let me know how much my trucks worth.  HAHAHA!  Black book better not be happening cause I'll be pissed.  I have over $3000.00 put into the front end alone and all my time and effort.
     Oh well, looks like it's time to get on my challenges.
     I'm really depressed today.  Sorry!  I'll update tomorrow.

Day 24 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Well silver is up in price a little bit.  I think it will take more than a few days for prices to be adjusted.  Either that or their silver bomb didn't turn out the way they hoped.  Maybe there where not that many people buying?  I don't know.
     My video today was of me working out with my cat that I think went quite well. lol.  then I did my shaving video, and an UXC update video.  I feel great today!
     I worked out this morning and then tonight I will work out again.  I also went for a short bike ride today, because tonight I'm going for another one while my wife gets her hair cut. :)
     Editing is going to be a bitch tonight with all I got going on.  I also want to do a silver update video later once I find out something credible with the markets.

Monday, December 13, 2010

Day 23 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Well, today I worked out like a bastard!  I'm making a run to the finish line which is in 7 days!  I think I worked out for around 2 hours today!  I also went for a bike ride that was very unfullfilling!  Why, because it was raining again.  I really wanted to pick up some more shots of the skateboard park, but it was just to wet again.
     So I went on a nice car ride.  All the way over to Richmond, just to check out where the big comic book sale auction was going to be.  Then I headed over to a comic book shop and bought a bunch of 25cent comics! :) Yay.  Just gearing up for the big sale.
     I really couldn't figure out what to draw today for my art project, so I let the paper control my hand.  I came up with a slug creature that eats people!  I'll paint it tomorrow.
     Well I'm really getting into this silver thing.  I did a bunch of research on it and can't wait to see if it's gone up on Monday.
     So far I've noticed that setting a 30 day challenge is challenging all in itself.  I'm figuring out what I don't want to do, and also what I really like to do.  I really like editing, and seeing my final product out in public.  I don't really like doing artwork everyday.  That's just a few things I've noticed.
     Anyways till tomorrow!  What have you done today?

Day 22 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Loaded up my bike and headed for the Skateboard part today.  On the way I stopped at the comic book store that the old guy died at a couple of months ago.  The store has been vacant ever since, but I like to go by every other day to see whats going on with the inventory.  Guess what?  They where loading everything up into trucks today.  It's going to be a huge auction sale on Thursday, and guess who will be there.  That's right, I will! :)  Gonna go and cash in on some deals.  Oh Yah baby!
     Got over to the park and New Westminster really needs to fix it up a bit.  It was so wet and the water isn't draining from it.  Also all the graffiti everywhere makes the sides of the bowls super slick.  I almost died trying to get out of the one massive bowl.  I had to gain up speed from the inside edge and quickly ride as fast as I could to the other side and then up and out!  OMG  I tried this 4 times before finally getting out!
     My art project today was to make a picture of "30 things that I am thankful for"  There are now 22 days of thankfulness on it!  Only 8 days left to go!
     I think I'm going to celebrate Day 31 with some GOD AWFUL PIZZA I'm gonna make!  Oh yah!

Day 21 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Well I set out this morning to go get some Silver so I can help Crash JP Morgan.  It's the 10th today and Tomorrow is when they are calling for everyone to buy at least an ounce of silver!  By "they" I mean Max Keiser and Alex Jones.  I did more than my part and bought up 26 ounces and a dime.  I'm not sure what the dime is in ounces.  The coin dealer was right on the money.  They checked the price as I was buying my silver.  not much of a markup either, I think it was only 2%.  That's way better than my last location which was 5-6% more than value.  Everyone should go out and do the same thing! Crash those bastards!
     While I was at the mall I decided to go for a parkade bike ride.  I don't have to worry about getting the camera wet down there!  While I was riding around, I lost track of where I was, I tried and tried to get back to my car but I just couldn't do it.  I was lost in the parkade.  Well the only thing I could do was ride my bad boy self right through the mall!  OH YAH!  It was epic.  People where staring at me and pointing and talking amongst themselves about it.  I just carried on.  I think I made it about halfway through the mall when I had to go upstairs on an escalator.  Just my luck, a security guard was right at the top waiting for me! HAHAHA.  He said something like I'm not allowed to ride my bike in the mall after I had asked him for directions. HA!  after that I headed to the other side of the mall as fast as I could, because they where following me!  I'm not sure what the laws are here about this.  I got to my exit and then right back into the parkade and home free to the car.  The guards actually followed me right to my car.  Oh well, footage to go up on You Tube tonight at Midnight.
     Check you later Bikenators!

Day 20 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

 Getting a little sick of lamb! LOL  I shouldn't have bought a roast.  Making a roast all to yourself is no fun.  It's fun in the beginning, but later on, you start looking for other things to eat.
     My bike ride today was great.  Went down to the docks and searched for another silver dealer.  Once I located the dealer it turns out that he only deals in Rare coins and stamps.  He did direct me to J&M in the Metrotown Mall.  I'll be going there tomorrow.  He said they are fair priced and go with market value to the minute. :)
     I took pictures of Trains today, Sky Trains.  It was absolutely beautiful.  The sun was setting on the tracks in between two buildings.  I spent a good hour filming and taking pictures there.  I'll post one a day on twitpics for you guys.
     Well, I'm on day twenty of my 30 challenges a day for 30 days!  It feels great and also tiring.  This is not for the week at heart.  I'm so glad I'm in the home stretch.  Only 10 days left to go!

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Day 19 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     I had a really good day today!  :)  I exercised a tonne as I'm gearing up for my last week of challenges.  Wow almost 20 days done.  I lost weight again.  I was really worried about that plateau stretch I was on.  I started taking in more water and it comes.
     To much rain.  Rain makes it hard to film outside.  I've got a great video idea, but I need sunshine for it.  I want to film me in the skateboard park.  I think I'll have to do it while school is in so I don't have kids in the way.
     Ha, I shaved my legs today!  First time ever.  I thought it would be lame or gay but now that I've done it, I kind of like it.  They feel so much.......fresher, and smother!
      I also got Adobe premiere to work for me! Yay!  I got a chance to finally upload some of the videos from the last few days.  It takes a lot longer to use Adobe than windows media, but at least adobe doesn't hog all of my memory and I can work on longer more intensive projects with it and not worry about getting memory crashes.
      So until tomorrow, What have you done today?

Day 18 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

 BAM.  Tonnes of shit on the go today!  Exercised first thing and then accomplished my first 10 tasks.  My wife needed me to run around today, wrapping and sending gifts.  Bah what a hassle it is trying to find specific stores when you are in a new area.  The post office was very elusive.  I must have asked 10 people where one was, and then tracking down their leads.  People suck at giving directions.  Why is it when you ask someone where something is, that even if they don't know, they will still try and guide you?  I don't get it.
    Anyways I bought SILVER today.  Preparing for Dec 11th silver bomb.  Watch my You Tube video for all the info.  Isn't it better to be prepared than not?  Silver is at $30.00 an ounce right now and is projected by Max Kieser/Alex Jones/ and the web bot that it's going to sky rocket to $500.-$600.00 an ounce in the very near future.  With just 1 million people buying up 1 ounce they figure that JP Morgan will go bankrupt because they have propped up the economy with buyouts.
     Well I'm waiting on ken to call me back so I can go over there and learn some shit about Adobe and internet web sites.
     Well now that I'm back from kens, I know have a basis for Premiere editing.  I think I'm gonna need a You Tube help video as well though. :)  Thanks Ken

Day 17 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

I hate waking up and the wife has already vacated the house.  I don't get a morning hug or nothing until she gets home.  I miss her a lot when she's at work.  Sometimes I even travel around the house looking to see if maybe she decided to have a nap on the couch and skip work.  Nope, she's not here! :(
     So today I went exploring to find a skateboard park.  I talked to several people, in order to find it.  Once I did I got some great shots of it and the artwork that is there.  New Westminster comic book store is still closed gathering dust.  I really wish they would do something about it already.
     Today I edited the photos I took of Christian and Trent.  They look great!
     All day I've been messing around with Adobe Premier.  I just don't get it.  I think I may have to go and visit the expert on all things editing tomorrow.  Ken knows more about this stuff than I ever will.  To bad he doesn't live a little bit closer.  Then I could go visit all the time!
     Well until I get this program figured out, I think my videos may be shorter for a while.  5 minutes and under or they just won't work.  Not only did it happen to me once, but twice I lost hours of footage editing to no memory.  Boooo.

Day 16 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Still at 269.5lbs.  Boy when I plateau I do it hard!  I'm gonna have to try and figure out whats going on.  I'm also very tired.  Wish I could have caffeine.  :)
     I've combined my exercises into an all in one now.  Not taking any days of one set or the other.  I'm just doing them all every day.  I've also added repetitions and weight.  I may have to add in more cardio soon, to compensate.
     Trent, and Christian are dropping in tonight so I'm banging out the challenges.  It seems like weekends are just going to be like this.  Chicken and rice for dinner, and then a movie of some sorts.
     I spent an hour and a half editing my wrestling footage, just to lose it due to lack of memory on the computer.  I have 4 gigs.  Damn.
     I was able to get my other two films up on You Tube though.  Yah.  I was in the zone for those ones.
     So I got a couple of shots of Trent and Christian tonight.  I will doctor them both up and use photo shop to alter them.  My art work today was to finish off my Digital zero logo.  I think it looks OK.  I'll probably change it up a few more times before I like it a lot.
     Almost sold the truck today too.  They nitpicked it a little but I'm sure they will contact me about it again.  It's a great truck.

Saturday, December 4, 2010

Day 15 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

  Today started out good.  I was up early and raring to go.  I think I was really tired from all of these challenges, and of doing them every day.  Once Jenn woke up, I pulled her back to bed and we had a great Nap together.  I think I got 3 of my challenges done and my weight recorded.  :(
     Once my wife kicked my butt out of bed, I decided I needed some fresh air and headed out on my bike.  The streets of New Westminster had a very vibrant energy about them today.  For good reason too, because they where having a Santa's Day parade.  Yippee.  So I rode the peers and got back in time to film the whole parade, and the lighting of the city Christmas tree.
     It was great being in the heart of downtown.  I talked to tonnes of people, who all wanted to know what I was filming and why.  They also really admired my bike and it's whole setup.  I'm loving it as well.      Rocky Mountain all the way boys.  One person I talked to was a wealth of information.  I found out that bike helmet laws are in force here, but the cops don't really care, as long as your not causing trouble or riding dangerously.  That's right, I was talking to a cop.  He was a great guy, and he also wants to be a mountain bike cop, I don't blame him.  You never have to worry about exercising if you ride bike all day as part of your job.  Also, what better way do you know, to really get to know the people, and help them out.  I would have hung out with him all night, but some distressed weird lady lost her family and he had to try and help her........even though I'm sure this lady didn't know her own name!
     I'd love to be a cop, Just for the stories!  I'd probably get to depressed with people though.  Cops should have an show about weird happening.  Not that lame show on t.v. that always busts crack heads.
     Anyways, On to editing the footage of yesterday and today.

Day 14 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

I woke up this morning a little bit conflicted.  I put out my second rant video and I was really having mixed feelings about it.  Is this a direction that I wanted to go into?  Could I make it big by posting these videos?  I decided ultimately that it's not really a direction that I want to be traveling in.  Yah they are easy to put out, yah they entertain a little.  But it's not the energy that I want to put out into the world.  So I dropped those videos this morning.  I'd rather everyone sees me as weird and funny and informative.  So this is the direction I'll be heading into.  For better or for worse.
     I must have been stressing about it because I gained a few pounds back.  Ack.  So now I'm at 269.5.  Still in the sixties but farther away from the fifties.  Looks like I'll really have to giver today.  It started raining but has since cleared a little.  I'm gonna film the bike ride video today no matter what.  If I have to wrap the camera up I will.
     I was messing with photo-shop today.  Hope Ken doesn't mind as I doctored his picture as well as mine and put it up on twit-pic.  I love photo-shop, so much fun to be had!
     So Jenn, Kenn, Deb, and myself all went to a Wrestling show tonight.  It was a Adam Firestorm memorial tribute show.  I've never seen Him wrestle but it seemed like he had a tonne of friends.  The show was kick ass, with only a few dry spots.  I got my picture taken with THA CREMATORY and some bumble bee guy I like to call the Waspinator.  Lots of fun to be had.  If you have never been to an independent wrestling show before, you should look one up in your area and see them.  I find they always put on a great show, with a LOT of heart.  Unlike the big promoters.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Day 13 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Today went quite well.  I got out for a bike ride, but again it rained so no filming.:(  That's starting to be a pain.  I got out to a bunch of stores and bought parts for the car.  I also got an e-mail about the truck.  We will see if anything comes of it. fingers crossed.
     I'm only eating 4 times today and let me tell you am I ever hungry.  I was craving pop today, and a cheeseburger.  I did not cater to the cravings though.  I did make myself some open faced burgers when I got home though.  Which where pretty good considering they where probably 10 times healthier than the one I wanted.
     Today's painting was neat.  I had my cat help me by dipping his paws in the paint and then touching the paper.  I would have tried to do something other than abstract, but this was Tux's first time and his paws where some stiff.
     So tomorrow I'll be speeding through things as in the evening we are going to see a tribute wrestling show!  I can not wait for it.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Day 12 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

 Well I just weighed myself and now it seems I'm at the same weight as yesterday!  I didn't gain or lose, but we will see what tomorrow brings. 269.5 lbs is still a 14 pound loss from where I started!
     I've been doing a lot of reading, and viewing, of information on marketing myself better.  It seems like everyone has an idea but most of them are just repeated ideas of others. Oh well, I'll just continue the way I have been and implement a few ideas on the road to whatever this is.
     Shaved my head dry today.  By that I mean that I used a pre-shave cream with no shaving cream.  It accually felt pretty good.  No pain at all.  It also felt like the razor was cutting the hairs cleaner and more evenly.  This might just become a regular thing for me.  Why buy shaving cream when all it does is makes a mess?
     I also did some homework today on biking locations.  Apparently New Westminster does not have a bike park or skateboard park. At least not on the sites I checked.  I did find a cool peer park that I will take everyone to in the morning.  It looks to be nice and long and also is bike friendly.
     I love the painting that I did today.  It's also a cartoon.  You can check it out on Twitpics tonight.  My two favorite characters are in it.  Duckie, and Frog.
     So tune in tomorrow when I have the cat help me to paint a picture!  Also check out the vid tomorrow when I take everyone along for the ride on the peer!

Day 11 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Today went OK.  Damn rain is keeping me from filming outdoors, thus my downhill bike films are not happening.  Just to wet.  I went out for an evening ride anyways though, even though It was damp.
     My eating habits have changed a little bit on advice of a friend.  He says to switch up your eating scedual from three times a day to 5 times a day to four times a day.  This way you trick your body into not getting used to a regiment of a steady diet and therefor won't store as much fat.  not sure if it will work, but I'm trying it out anyways.  I've also increased my protein.  I'll get some whey protein powder later on.
     My Beta testing also didn't go so well today.  I logged in and tried to make a new character, but it wouldn't let me complete.  Then I tried to log in and, no go there either.  I think the servers are going through updates or something.  I'll try again later on.
     My exercising is going well, and I had a photo shot today with my good buddy Ken.  He's trying to make me an award winning website with some cool things going on there.  We will see what he can come up with.  I look forward to it.
     Anyways, that's about it for today guys.  I'll update again in the morning.

Monday, November 29, 2010

Day 10 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     ACK!  I'm back up to 272 pounds.  I'm not sure how that is even possible, other than I'm gaining muscle mass now faster than I'm losing water/fat weight.  I feel less fat, and look less fat!  My diet hasn't really changed and I'm doing more cardio/working out.  Hmmmm  Maybe my body is storing for some reason.  Oh well, will ponder this more today with Google and a work out friend.
      My bike ride was pretty good today.  I just kind of rode around today rather than look for hills.  That's because it was pouring out, and the camera does not like rain.  Hopefully we will have better weather in the morning. :)
      I think I did a great job at editing my shaving video today.  I went a little bit crazy with some of the things that where bouncing around in my head, but I think people really liked it.  They got to see my funny side.  I've got a lot more in store and the funny stuff will trickle out.
     Today at the grocery store I must have been really hungry.  I  waited for the wife to travel down an isle, and then I dug into a cooked chicken with my fingers.  Just as I was knuckle deep in this chickens thigh a short Asian dude walked around the corner and gave me a dirty look.  This only made me savor the flesh even more as I liked my lips in front of him. Then I gave him a little smile.  Ha. He wishes he was me!

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Day 9 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Today I've just been exhausted!  Not sure if it's my food intake or just being creative and working my mind 24/7.  I'm starting to think I should have implemented a day off a week or even two.  Oh well to late now.  I think more than anything, I'm just not getting enough rest as I had a one hour nap today.   I could tell that it was much needed.
     Once I got my bike ride video in, I felt a tonne better.  I also got my head shave done, but I have some further footage to take in the morning before I release it to youtube.  It's going to be epic!
     Still chugging along with the rest of my challenges.  some of them are harder than others, and some are pretty easy.  my exercising is going well.  I'm now getting into more than 30 sit ups and squats.  I had to modify my squats though and not come down so close to the ground as my left knee has really turned into a bugger.
     My art a day is going well.  I just wish I had more time in a day to do something really neat.  Maybe I'll do something that takes a few days to complete.
     Anyways.  I'll post more in tomorrow.

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Day 8 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Off to an eventful day!  I've exercised way more than my program called for.  I'm also trying to lose as much weight as I can in this 30 days as healthy as I can.  I went to a pharmacist yesterday and I asked what else I could be doing to lose weight, just for in case I plateau.  Pretty much other than the things I'm doing, she said to take Hydroxycut.  Well, that stuff has sodium, which is salt, and caffeine which they just don't call caffeine.  They call it Tea extract.  I'm not drinking caffeine for my challenge so this stuff is out.  And sodium puts water weight on, not what I'm looking for.
     I gotta speed through my challenges today as It's Date night tonight.  Gonna go and watch Mastermind.   Should be good as it's a cartoon and Will Farrel and Brad Pitt are in it!
     My bike ride today was Awesome!  Just saying if you haven't checked out Day #8 bridge ride then you are gonna miss out.  It wasn't raining so I got to take my cam with me outside, so I took full advantage of it.  :)
     My head is getting pretty cut up from Speed shaving, but whatever.  I'm a Self appointed WORLD RECORD holder in whole head speed shaving!  And I have Challenged YouTube to try and do better!  So now I gotta bring my A-GAME!  35.86 seconds isn't good enough.  I wanna be down to 10 seconds from the time the razor hits the head till it drops.  I'm not sure what to do once I achieve my goal, but I have some ideas kicken around up there in the old bald noggin.
     So I got my artwork done for the day.  With a little help from my buddy Tux and my wife I was able to set up an artistic photo of my cat taking a dump on the toilet.  I also did the graphic work on the bubble, and on the book cover.
     So almost time to edit today's footage and then out to the mall! yay

Day 7 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     So today I spent most of it working on my truck.  Cleaning every nook and cranny and door jamb.  It took most of my day because I had to go to the hundred dollar store. (Wal-Mart)  I call it the hundred dollar store because every time we go there, it's a hundred bucks! lol  The truck is spick and span, running great, and i took video and pictures of it so I can post some adds. :)
     Exercising is getting better. and I lost more weight yet again.  I didn't think I would due to the Vodka consumption last night.  I like a few sips here and there once every 5-6 months.  But I think vodka turns straight, into sugar in the blood.  Tomorrow may not be so good.  I worked out extra hard today though to make up for it.
     My painting today is AWESOME yet again.  today I painted a mushroom for my wife as a gift.  She likes my mushrooms! :)
     Short post today. watch my youtube video for more info about how my week went overall.

Day 6 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Yay.  I lost more weight.  Grand total. drum roll please.....11.5 pounds in 5 days.  o.m.g. I'm loving it and myself today!  Now it's almost time to work out.  So for my artwork today I painted my tv wall mount board with the Digital ZERO productions name and logo.  I think it looks cool.
      I made some awesome meals today, but most of my day was spent filming my cat getting a bath, and then the clean up after wards.  I cleaned the kitchen/dishes/floors and the bathroom tub/walls/toilet/sink/floor.  This was so that I could prep for later.
      I made my wife dinner, and ran her a bubble bath.  The tub was lined with candles, and a gift bag with a card in it for my sweety.  She loved it all.  And I did it all just because!
      So I'm trying to get my website up and running and it's causing me nothing but hassles.  The page I had was an old page, and my hosting companies web site is so convoluted with adds and gimmicks to get you to spend more money that their web site is impossible to navigate.   I'm using go daddy!  Would it be so hard for them to just put up a video that is actually useful?  I just want to upload my damn page that's already made in dreamweaver and ready to go.  Is it so hard to ask for a "upload your website" button.  If I have to read a 2 million page essay on how to do it, I'm not! lol why is stuff like this made so hard.
     Anyways, I made some sweet vids today, and apologized to an old friend today.  It really felt good to get it off my chest.
      My wife kicked my ass out the door today.  We'll she put things into perspective for me.  So even though it snowed 10 inches of ice and slush, I went out and filmed the downhill ride today!  It was well worth it I think.

Day 5 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

 So I lost ANOTHER 2 pounds! No pop/salt is probably taking a lot of the water weight off.  I've also been taking a few vitamins every day like vitamin B, D, a multi-vitamin and something else.  I've also got a secret weapon that I'm taking and you'd be surprised to find out what it is.  Mix that in with some key exercises and a bunch of mountain biking and the pounds are just dropping off.
     I went for a drive today and got another shot of a fire hydrant.  I'm not sure why I like to take pictures of them other than I think they look funny.  I also doctored one up today in photo shop so I hope you guys like it.  I'll take an interesting pic of my food today as well.  Check out my twitpic account for those pictures. 3-4 new pics every day!
     On a side note, I'm still trying to find out whats going on with a local comic book store.  The owner passed away and I'd really like to get a hold of some of the inventory.  I'm a big comic book fan if you didn't already know.  The only thing that I know is that the building has been unopened for over a month and probably closer to two months.  The inventory is just sitting there and the lawyers and accountants are working on it.  So I guess we will see.  Rumor is that the kids don't want to do anything with the I'm thinking liquidation sale! :)
     Jenns going running tonight, So I'm going along on my bike, and we'll see if I can get some ass shots.......of me riding my bike.  Dirty monkeys, you thought I'd take ass shots of my wife......well I probably will but that's for my own use!  Don't even ask, It won't happen, not in a million years, not for a million dollars........OK a million would be fine but the cloths stay on! HA!
     I'm really enjoying myself with this project.  I'm editing videos now, and slicing and dicing music to go along with them.  I'm also adding captions to my new videos that I think are pretty funny.  So if you haven't checked them out yet.  Have fun and leave me a comment on other things I should be doing!   My grandma says "go and subscribe or I'll send you pictures of mikes ass"

Day 4 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

Well today I woke up to a little bit of a surprise!  It turns out that I've now lost 6 pounds in 3 days.  I started out at 283.5 on day one and now I'm at 277.5!  Yay me!  Looks like whatever I'm doing is working.  It's a good thing I'm filming every day as well to show what I am doing.  To me it's not just about getting healthy. It's about getting shit done!
     Major headaches today so I've been having green tea and aspirin to alleviate it. Still no pop or coffee so I guess that's a good thing.
     I got all my exercises done today with only some strain on my muscles.  I can tell I'm getting better though as I'm getting through them faster and I think my splits training is doing great.  I'll measure how close I'm getting tomorrow.
     So my art project of the day was to stylize my business cards.  Took me way to much time and It's still not right.  I'll get Jenn to help me out tonight.
     Well I'm off to go exploring and mountain biking now.  So until tomorrow, "What shit have you got done?"

Day 3 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

     Today I woke up really sore from my waist down to my knees.  It was actually really hard to crouch, walk, and get up out of bed.  That alone made me very unmotivated.  So I had breakfast and wrote out a new daily activity sheet that is a template for the next 20 days.  Now all I have to do is put check marks down once I've completed a task.  This made me Happy, so all of a sudden I'm more motivated. 
     No coffee yet today and It's already 3:00p.m.  Yay, looks like I may be caffiene free for the next 27 days as well.  Lets wait and see though, headaches from lack of caffiene are killer.  So I changed up my daily routine of exercises a little due to my legs not wanting to co-operate.  Instead of Squats and pushups, I did bicep curls 20lbs X 30 and tricep lifts 35lbs X 30.  Oh yah did I mention that when I went to do my pushup my muscles where so sore that I just fell face into ground.  Yup, nothing like a little reality, and your muscles telling you that this is just not going to happen today.  Oh well. 
     I also added in stretching.  I hope jenn comes home with bananas tonight.  I think I need some potasium.  Did my house chores.  My vehicle work was a little diffferent today.  I called insurance companies and cancelled policies that we no longer need, and am getting claims experience letters sent to us.  Lots of phone work in regards to that. 
     I had a healthy lunch with no additives and painted a cool looking heart today.  I'm really getting into the filming aspect of this challenge.  I've been cutting stuff together, adding music, and experimenting with filming while ridding my bike down hills.  Kinda neat. 
     I'm also BETA testing a Video game that I'm not legaly allowed to mention.  What I will say though is that so far it is Awesome......Just like Me! 
     Today I'm thankfull for my little buddy "TUX" my cat!  I think he deserves a shower tonight.  Watch for the film of "WET KITTY"  Going bike riding and I'll update all "my many a media outlets" tonight! LMAO  <---can't believe I said that on film.  I'm so Canadian!

Day 2 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

       So, yesterday was a tough day.  I got all 30 of my challenges done, Yay me!  I didn't go to bed until 2 in the morning, and I only got one video out on Youtube.  I was hoping to get all my videos of the day out but editing any more, would have made today not happen, or having videos of very low quality. 
       Today I was up at 8:00 and with only 6 hrs of sleep I was feeling pretty exhausted.  Started out with editing my 30 day challenge list, so that it could be done more effitiently.  Took my vitamins and set off to Tim hortons for a coffee.  My coffee was an extra large 2 cream 1 sugar.  normally I get a 3c2s so it's an improvement. I will slowly wean myself from coffee, as headaches will kill my creativity if I stop cold turkey. 
       Anyways, I got home and jumped into filming my exercise routine.  Just short clips that I can cut together later.  No one really wants to sit and watch an hour of me working out do they? I didn't think so!  Then I shaved my head again, and filmed it.  Sometimes setting up the camera for a short shot takes way more time than the event.  Then I painted a picture of a "30" done artistically.  Some house cleaning and garbage removal.  Cleaned out the truck a little more, and set out some nuts for a squerrel that I'm trying to befriend. 
       Went for my Adventuring/bike ride, got some Awsome footage and talked to 3 people while out and about today, smiled and said hello to 3 others.  I took an artistic photo today of a fire hydrant.  I listened to some self help audio and played away on my bongo. haha, the word Bongo sounds funny when spoken slowly over and over again. :) 
       I then Meditated and thought about a word my uncle made up. "Deep 'etude".  What "Deep 'etude" means to me. It means Deep Attitude! not in a bad attitude way but in a "positive, energetic attitude way!  Thats deep! 
       So we went grocery shopping for "healthy food" today and I've come to the conclusion that if it says organic on the's more expensive.  Eggs for example are an organic food that comes from an organic animal. So why is it that the carton labeled organic is $2.00 more than the non-organic, which is organic?  I know, I know, the organic chickens eat organic food.  So my question then becomes....What do non organic chickens eat? metal, wood, plastic. Hmmm.    So anyways now I'm going to be intimate with my wifes feet, beta-test a video game, then update all my blogs/tweets/facebook/youtube, and edit some videos!  Later masturbator! :)

Day 1 of my 30 day challenge 900N30

       Well, day one of the 30 day project has been off to a slow start.  Just setting up positions for the camera work is taking a lot of time, but I expect this to become second nature in no time.  To prepare for this project I had to make my own web page, and you tube account.
I also grew my hair out for 30 days prior to the event of shaving it off for a little better effect.  Most of the other web related stuff is going to be done on the fly as this is how i designed this challenge.  I expect to be up for most of the night tonight as well, as I 'm so far behind schedule.  I payed for the website, so that I could get hosting in time, and also got a dedicated e-mail for the site.  This was so that I could align every other site to that e-mail and web site.  It took almost 48 hrs for it to be set up, and now that it is, I'll be uploading a web site tonight.  I didn't take the easy, cheap looking web site making programs either.  I designed everything from scratch in Macromedia Dreamweaver, and Adobe Photoshop. 
       All of the pictures are mine as well as all of the content. This way I don't have to worry about people saying I ripped them off, or anything dumb like that.  I also uploaded a couple of videos of my cat TUX to the Youtube account last night, and this morning.  This was so that I could get a feel for it and the programs involved. 
       My second video had music added to it from my friend Joey.  A little song he made way back when we all dreamed of being stars, or something.  The song was developed for our counter-strike clan "kitten" so I thought it was appropriate to add it to my kitty video.  I got permission to use it from him years ago. I may have to compose something myself :(  not looking forward to that!  
       Anyways, my writing time for the day is almost done.  I'd also like to just add that I shaved my head bald with a product that I'm very impressed with.  Once I'm done this project I think I will contact the manufacturer of these blades and see if they want to work on some kind of advertising deal with me.  I 'll supply the footage and they can slice and dice it anyways that they want. 
       So with that in mind I'll start shaving with the camera on from now on and just save the footage.   You never know till you try right.  Maybe, they will offer me blades for life or something, and at the price of them......I think I'd take that offer!  :)
