My toons

If anyone is wondering, I have toons on 2 servers. "SneakySneaky" is my first toon that I started when World of Warcraft first came out but had to change him to "Wassneaky" when I transfered him to Baelgun. He is a lvl70 undead rogue currently on Baelgun server.

Also on this server is a paladin that I am currently leveling up to tank and AOE grind, his name is Kersplooge (if you know where that name is from I will give you a cookie). My last toon is on Garona server, my original server. That toon is a lvl 70 priest, currently named "Healbot". I will more than likely move her over to Baelgun, because of some real life friends now on that server and because I pretty much hate Garona.

If you see me on at anytime, just send me a tell to say Hi.

Neat video about grinding

Here is a cool video that I found on http://www.wowinsider.com hosted by google video. It is a video showing how to grind with a Mage. Pretty good video, good editing and cool music. Enjoy.

The Day Has come

As mentioned earlier, here is a picture of me starting my progress on loosing weight. I will update the weight picture every week when I get one. As stated before my goal this week is to get to 240 pounds.

Work out this week

Well, I got the the gym this week and got myself weighed and from my last weighing, I lost 4 pounds :-). I am now at 242.6 pounds. My goal for next week will be 240 pounds. I know that that is alot in one week, but I am going to push for it. I will get some pics of myself and the weight print out that I get from the gym. I will post every week a new print out and every month or so a pic of me and how I look.

I went and got a pair of shorts this weekend and am down a size. Nothing feels better than that. I started cooking allot more. Tonight I cooked some barbque chicken out on the grill, took about 1 hour cooking time, very good. Had this with some baked beans and a sweet potato. Until next time. Will keep updating with my progress.

Another Day and Somthing new

Well, its been a week and not much has changed around my house. I started taking Alli to help with my weight loss and to compliment my workout. So far don't see much change from it, but will weight myself next week and see if I loose any fat. I will keep this blog updated with my work out and eating. I think that it will be a good way to show my progression. Might take some pics of me, kind of like progression pics to help motivate me. Maybe that way I can see the physical changes as I workout and eat a lower fat diet.

As for the gaming, I have started up WoW again but not playing anywhere close to what I was before. Before I would have scheduled days that I play and now I just jump on for a hour or so to play with buddies and to chat.

Till another day.

Almost to the weekend..

Well, it is almost the weekend. Currently on call so not going to do much. Been out in the yard more and more this summer. trying to stop from playing WoW (World of Warcraft). I played since beta and currently stopped last month. I have really been enjoying being outside, kind of feels like when I was younger and aways outside.

Not much going on with me other than that. I will try and get some pics up on various things. since I know that just reading is boring :-).

Till next time.

Work, Work...

In work right now, got in about 12:00 am. Installing some new servers and working to move some existing servers to a new console server. The fun never ends.

Not an eventful weekend, finally got out in the yard and did some yard work. Cleaned up around the house, seems like that is all I do now, never ending cleaning.

I have been on the fence about my Wii, whether or not it was the right choice of console, and after reading some of the information from E3 this year, I think it is. Let me explain my reasoning. The Xbox has been confirmed to have a design flaw that causes the red ring of death, so if were to buy one of those, it is pretty much a crap shoot if my box would die. As for the PS3, they announced a price drop of $100 right before E3, but it turns out that that price drop is only temporary until they get rid of the 60gig model, so they can sell their bundled $80 gig model for $599.

All in all, I think I chose the winner of the 3. I can't wait till Metroid 3: Corruption comes out. A few on my wish list are that, Guitar Hero 3, and Mario Galaxies. I am still up in the air with Smash Brothers. I will defiantly have some games to play during Christmas.

Until next time..

New Day ! !

Well a new day and more things to do. I finally got a chance to watch the E3 speech of Nintendo and I think that the WiiFit is exactly what I am looking for. I am currently working out 3-4 times a week and with something like that, it will only help me loose those 40 pounds that I have been trying to loose for the past 5 years.

I weigh myself every week at the gym, and I will scan and upload the weight data every week to display my progress. Maybe there is someone out there that can help or offer suggestion on my diet and workout. more to come on that later...

E307 - My impressions

Well, I am currently watching the Sony keynote online. Sony looks to have allot in store for the Sony line up. Starting with the PSP, there will be 3 more new versions, a silver, black and a Starwars version.

The PSN network looks to have gotten some upgrades also. You can download games or buy the games on Blue Ray. You can also now start a game within PSHome and this was see in the keynote by playing Motorstorm.

NCSoft will be developing games for Sony and the PS3 that will work directly with the PSNetwork. Ubsoft, will be delivering Haze to the PS3 exclusively. This game is a 1st person shooter, that looks very promising The trailer, cuts in and out of game play and real video. Very fluid.

Epic and Sony are releasing Unreal Tournament 3 to the PS3 and you can even use PC created mods. The game looks visually very stunning, and has a release date of November 07.

Some other games coming to PS3 that are not exclusives: Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare, Assassins Creed, Kane & Lynch: Deadmen, Resident Evil 5, Burnout Paradise, Madden NFL 08, Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix, The Simpson's game, Guitar hero III: Legends of Rock, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Rock Band.

The next 3rd party exclusive is MGS4 (Metal Gear Solid 4). Looks like it is still only going to be on PS3. The game is celebrating its 20th anniversary this July. This is the last of the Metal Gear Solid line, and the end of Snake. From looking at the trailer, this looks like a top notch game. The fight scene at the end of the trailer was truly amazing. The whole trailer was shown in real time. As of E3, we only see the trailer, nothing playable, but next week in Tokyo there will be a playable version. This is truly going to be a good game and might even turn the PS3 problems around.

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the next game that is shown. Does not look bad, very vibrant colors. Folklore is the next game.

Heavenly Sword was the next game shown . It is an Action/Adventure game about a sword that a human gets that was meant for a god, so the sword is draining the characters. The video is very high resolution and looks promising.

Next game is NBA 08, touting as the first game as full 1080p, with full online capability.

LittleBigPlanet shows as the next game, where you create your characters and run though a very interactive environment. This title will utilize the PSNetwork, where you can share your characters.

The final game is Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Very detailed game, with over 3000 animations on the main character.

A few other games that was mentioned was Infamous, and GT5 (very visually stunning.)

And the final game that was shown was Killzone 2. The trailer that was shown is the same one that has been floating around the net for the past few days. Everything that all the other news sites have been saying about this game is correct. If this game lives up to what we see here, this looks to turn out to be a really good game.

Overall Sony seems to have done a good job at E3, I believe that this is what Sony needed to get jump started, along with the PS3 price cut, to push there console further in peoples homes.

Here is a pic of my little Girl watching fireworks at the park on July 4th.
