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.

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.

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.

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!
