Re: What are you watching?

Death Note is really cool - one of the more memorable anime series. I'm currently reading the manga, and once that's done I'll rewatch the anime.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I read recently that on average kids are sick 7 months of the year. Obviously there are degrees of sick and, but there's definitely a need to look after sick children on a regular basis. Society doesn't really have a good way to deal with that in the age of both parents working / single parents / et...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Coming into work sick is the ultimate dick move. Bringing a sick kid in is on a par with that. No worker is so important that they can risk others getting sick.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Think the most shocking thing is the pundits blaming Turnbull for the loss - as if knifing him didn't happen.

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

I honestly don't think it's that hard to make good choices on what to eat - the rules of eating well are pretty well established at this point. And with the range of apps these days for diaries, it's fairly easy to leverage that existing knowledge in the choices we make. Though I wouldn't mind havin...

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

13000 steps yesterday and no ill effects on the ankle.
Didn't track eating and drinking, so I'm guessing I'm somewhat over.

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

Yesterday was a write off with the sickness and injury - I only managed ~5300 steps and ate too much. Today I'm back walking again, and trying to eat reasonably well (except the leftover pide for breakfast- so greasy), and I'm hoping to resume running again tomorrow if my ankle doesn't show any issu...

Seemed okay to continue, but a few hours la...

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

Wow, I can't imagine going carb-free. Yesterday I ate nearly 400g! And even then, I worry it's not enough.

Anyways, yesterday:
- 20,000 steps
- 5km low intensity jog
- 20 minute brisk walk
- just under calorie target

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

My Garmin Connect is calculating it, which I'm assuming it is doing based on weight, distance, and heart rate. And their numbers are in line with similar numbers I've seen online for running. For instance, this morning my run was 5km, went for 38 minutes, and it was calculated at 402 calories. My we...

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

My daily limit depends on my exercise. My base BMR is currently 1720, then I add on any cardio exercise where I'm continually active for >5 minutes. On days I run, it's around 2500cal. On days I do the long run, it's closer to 3000. On days where I only walk, it's around 2000. I let MyFitnessPal man...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Being able to reach anyone one on one is tough enough, being able to communicate with 25-30 people at once - most of whom are completely uninterested in the subject - is a gargantuan ask of anybody. Teachers have one of the hardest jobs there are, and given their relative importance to society, it's...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

One of the more disturbing things I heard were about hunting club bucket lists, where essentially the rare animals are targets simply because they are rare. Another animal to shoot because it's another animal that can in theory be shot. And honestly I think that's where the impasse is. Hunting has k...

Re: XCOM 2

Gotta say, it wasn't my most persuasive or impassioned argument. Really just looking for an excuse to pull the game out once more. :P It is pretty cool that so long after the release of the game they're still working on it and releasing the content for free. That's the kind of thing that builds good...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I really enjoyed the first one - it was a hybrid of Thief, BioShock, and Deus Ex with a half decent story and a cool steampunk setting. What I thought was really cool about it was that your gameplay style affected the world - a high violence route made security beef up for later missions, so there w...

Re: Wellness Accountability - October 2018

Personally I find weekdays easier than weekends because there's a structure to my day when I work. I don't have that on weekends (nor do I desire it) so I find eating is more chaotic and the desire to eat and drink is much more pronounced. Having MyFirnessPal helps with this by providing an artifici...
