My Fitness Pal is going to HATE ME today.

I busted my ass all morning. Burned 1200+ Calories.

That means, the stupid app is going to want me to eat 2k+ calories today. I felt miserable yesterday after indulging in pizza for a celebration of my kid's Grades. (my youngest two brought home straight A's, making it 3 grading periods in a row that they have both done so)

I felt miserable, and I still didn't even go over my calorie goal for the day (now at 1650).

How int he world and I going to find enough "healthy" food to eat 2k+ calories? I just had 400 for lunch, and I'm stuffed.

Whoa whoa whoa. Wait. Don't force yourself to eat food just to maintain a caloric balance that MFP is going to be happy with. There are ebbs and flows to every single food plan and even if you burn a shitton of calories in one day it doesn't mean you need to compensate by eating all those calories back. (Plus like you said, you indulged yesterday, so if anything, today's your "balance it out" day.)

Although what the heck were you doing to burn 1200 calories? I could run for two hours straight and I wouldn't be able to burn that.

For today, eat only if you're hungry. Easy thing to boost your calories up if you're actually feeling famished: apples and bananas are around 100 calories each. Add some peanut butter to either of those and your calories will jump as well (plus it's healthy fat mixed with fruit so there's nothing to feel bad about).

I know. I don't want to eat more just to compensate.

The app seems to get "mad" if I eat less than 1200 calories, or leave 800 or more calories if I exercise. After meeting with my doctor, he told me to make sure that I don't have the app telling me that I'm not eating enough, so I've been trying to stick with that, but on days like today, I just can't even fathom trying to eat that much.

As far as the calories burnt,
1200 Calories burnt = back breaking labor moving, pulling, packing, etc... lots of items into boxes, weighing them, and the like. The closest thing I could find in the app is Moving Household items, carrying boxes. All told, I have 700 pounds of stuff going out UPS that is there because I got it all from the warehouse, and packed it, and I've probably got another 400 pounds going Mail. And the day isn't over yet.

As the E-commerce guy, I have to pull, pack, and all that jazz anything and everything I sell. So today:

20 Mower Transmissions = 16 pounds each. From the top shelf in the warehouse. So that's up the ladder, get 2, bring em down, put em on the cart, and up and down and up and down, until I have all 20 of them.
14 ATV Tires = 12 pounds each. Similar to what I did with the transmissions, but only up the ladder half as far. OH yeah, and moving the ladder from one end of the warehouse to the other. (while this sounds trivial, it's a 90,000 SQ FT Warehouse, and a 15 ft ladder. After getting the transmissions, I felt like I was in Slow mo)

That was the big stuff. Then all the headlights, brake stuff, misc small tires, Scooter Trunks, and what not. Once I have it all on carts, I take it back to my office, load them all in boxes, pack them, put them on the scale, get them weighed and labeled, get them back on carts, and take the carts where they have to go. Took me 3 hours to get it all done. I put it in the app as 90 minutes, since there were times when I wasn't doing anything strenuous (sitting at the comp printing labels, taping boxes, putting labels on.

Then, later, I'll have to load the mail in my car (I don't think it's going to fit), and take it up to the post office, and put it on carts there, because our small town post office wont give us a daily pick up unless we pay $15 a day, or schedule it online. (Yes. that's what I want to do schedule a pickup for an unknown amount of boxes every freaking day.... They love the "unknown qty".)

I'm a regular one man wrecking crew of E-Commerce around here lately. It's :15 till 2pm here, and I'm just now finishing up my lunch, and getting to the part where I get to edit pics, and get stuff on the site, and ebay. I don't think I'm going to get to work on my new shopping cart software at all today. Or tomorrow.

It's crazy. I feel like I get a better workout some days at work than I do playing baseball, or walk/jogging/running. It's hard to get people to understand what a day of "busy" is here for me. Today, I'm just wearing the Shipping hat, and a little of the "Data Entry Hat". Tomorrow I'm going to try and wear the programmer hat a little more, and maybe the marketing hat. But, knowing my luck, I'll have to put on the IT hat because it's been too long without a problem.

EDIT:
One more thing. I have this awesome blender. it's called a Ninja. (I also have the smaller "Bowl" size blade and container as well)

One of my Desserts of choice lately, has been to take a frozen banana, and just a little milk (like... maybe 1 - 1 1/2 TBSP), Chunk the banana, and put the milk in with it. BLEND BLEND BLEND.

It ends up coming out like Soft Serve Ice Cream. I'm not a huge fan of the Banana Taste, but I can top it with some fresh fruit, and pretend it's a DQ Blizzard.

The lock glyph that lets you run on water with your class mount is even sexier.

totally agree, i just had a brain fart

its like path of frost, just always on when riding class mount (and cmon, why would you NOT ride the lock class mounts? esp when you get your dreadsteed?!?!?!)

I've had a pretty huge crush on the Anzu mount ever since he was introduced, so i use that on all my chars.

I definitely have a separate binding though for the lock mount just so I can run on water.

Police chief got his laptop hijacked with that stupid fbi screen thanks to his kid, and he questions my ability to fix it because all i am doing is read comics on my ipad while i let all the programs fo its work.

He thinks that slamming my fingers on the keyboard will somehow make the scans go faster...

Frustration 1: Finding 5 warbringers last night but not being able to kill any of them due to lack of a DK tank to team with (given up trying to find a non-DK tank, healer, and other dps, nor am I interested in becoming a kite-master and soloing as a hunter, since that takes about 20 min... and several of the spots don't have room for that).

Frustration 2: Access here from work is going to be cut off soon. Tested the new proxy server they are going to deploy, and a ton of new sites, including this one, are gone.

Just noticed that all the old character selection screens are gone.
(Gilneas for worgen,SW for humans,forest for NE,etc)
There is now either ORG or SW for everyone,all the time.

EDIT: Now it works proper.That was some weird ass bug.

I solo them on my paladin, any reason why you would need a healer for them? Takes me about 8 minutes.

ShadoPan Assault doesn't have the item for gaining account rep boosts at revered. =|

Hit revered last week and went looking for it before I did the Champions of the Thunder King and LFR on my Warrior.

I've been reading how good guilds fail to recruit good players while I consider myself good player (do decent dps/healing, don't stand in fire, study the fights, etc), top the DPS meters on every fight on every toon at every item level, the least damage taken, etc. So much effort for so little reward (even RNG hates me)

I've been trying some guilds but they don't do anything ever, not even LFR or anything else organized, motivation to keep playing is running thin... even tried Openraid groups, nobody seems interested or willing to acept me in T14 runs, even the more simple raid there. (10 man MSV at i500 should be enough with kill achieves), I've been stuck on "A Change of Command" quest forever

I was in something similar, if a bit earlier. I was more or less convinced I would stay in the average-low guilds forever until I dared try apply at Unqualified. They didn't have room, but they wanted a new tank for a second team, so it all worked out in the end ^^

Keyword here is dare: like for a job, you have to try higher than you'd normally do.

For the record, we still need a Boomkin.

A lot of guilds out there love finding Diamonds In The Rough. Keep looking, keep at it, and like Sagara said ... aim high :)

If I hadn't just convinced an awesome Rogue to come back and play with my team, I'd give you a shot. <3

:) I know right?

My last name is only 2 syllables, so even if you said my whole freaking name, it's shorter than "HEY COMPUTER GUY!"

Well... Not "whole" if you include my middle names, but then... you'd just be an asshole.
