Re: FItness, Weightlifting, Bodybuilding

Lifting and cardio will definitely be a part of my weight loss. Just have to buckle down and get it all going. I have a decent home gym setup. Power rack, rogue fitness barbell, flat bench, deadlifting platform, and about 600 lbs of weight. For cardio, I have a mountain bike and a road bike, with an...

Re: FItness, Weightlifting, Bodybuilding

Merry Christmas y’all. Keep moving in the right direction! 😁 I need to get back on the wagon. I have been stalled at 230 lbs since before Thanksgiving. Life and work has made it hard to keep up with things, and my discipline sucks. Planning on being a resolutionist and get started again with liftin...

Re: FItness, Weightlifting, Bodybuilding

I dropped 17 lbs in 3 weeks on keto. I'm in a bit of a stall. I've been stuck at 230-231 lbs for a week now. No big deal though. I'm sure things will improve. I need to do some more cycling. Either MTB or my road bike. But work and family has kept me from being able to do that lately. I have an el c...

Re: What are you doing.... NOW?

Browns are definitely the most interesting team in the NFL. I agree. Their defense is out of this world, and the offense could go either way. But knowing about Baker's personality, I don't see it being all that bad. 8-7-1 is believable, but I'm expecting more around 6-9-1. Either way, it'll be a fu...

Re: What are you doing.... NOW?

Moved the TV into the garage to watch the Bengals. Kids watching Daniel Tiger! Ran a cat 6 Ethernet direct to the TV and it works great. I'm watching redzone right now. My Browns played Thursday, so this is the best way I can keep track of the Bungals and the Ratbirds at the same time. It is crazy ...

Re: Home Theater

gijoe4500, I also have a BenQ projector though a different model. Still going on the original bulb - not sure how many hours on it - I'll have to check. I ended up replacing my bulb at around 7000 hours. It finally popped. Replaced the entire bulb housing too, because that's the usual recommendatio...

Re: GIJoe4500's Failed Reno 2018 Attempt at Recovery

The Bermuda looks dead, but it's just scalped. Couldn't mow for over two weeks because we got over 18" of rain in that time. Will bounce back quickly

Re: 2018 - Warm Season - What did you do with your lawn today?

Not today, but yesterday.... After 2 weeks of REALLY wet weather (18+ inches of rain), I finally got to mow my lawns. Had to take the rotary out there before I could mow with the reel. Scalped a lot just because we had so much growth. Didn't have much of a choice though. Plus, another hurricane is s...

Re: GIJoe4500's Failed Reno 2018 Attempt at Recovery

So, I haven't been maintaining my yard as well as I should have for optimal growth/spread/thickening. But it has been doing wonderful on its own! The back yard celebration is kicking major @ss and is slowly spreading into the common bermuda around it. April/May-ish of next year, I'll probably nuke a...

Re: Home Theater

ericgautier I can say, my one "regret" is buying a 7 channel receiver. I wish I had splurged about bought an 11 or a 13 channel Dolby Atmos receiver. Because 7.2.4 or 7.2.6 surround sound just has a nice ring to it! Plus, right now, I don't have any overhead speakers, which I really want. And if I ...

Re: Home Theater

@Shindoman While sound quality is the most important thing in designing a sound system, aesthetics definitely plays a big part in it as well. I would love it if any of my equipment looks half as good as that Shindo tube setup you have going on.

Bumping this up. I am venturing back into home audio/theater. We finished our basement reno. I regret a bunch of things now that it is finished. In the back of my head, I wanted to turn it into a movie room and but didn't act on it. I could have ran wires, extra outlets (ceiling) and speakers in th...

Re: GIJoe4500's Failed Reno 2018 Attempt at Recovery

Oh, doesn't paver sand pack tightly as well? Might be a good idea to use the plugger to get it out of those holes, and get that white play sand to fill those holes my friend. Definitely going to. Should have just went and got a yard of sand in my pickup, and just keep a sand pile in the corner of t...

Re: GIJoe4500's Failed Reno 2018 Attempt at Recovery

I started putting the pro plugger to work. https://s9.postimg.cc/8qiw4wx1b/IMG_20180512_163902.jpg Then filled the holes in the grass with sand. Used paver sand. Which was a mistake. I didn't realize paver sand had a bunch of tiny pebbles in it. https://s9.postimg.cc/cmw80zxhb/IMG_20180512_170340.jpg

:thumbup: I did the same thing in my yard, and you can't really tell where the plugs were pulled from. Keep hitting it with N and water, and you'll be good.
That's the plan. I have no clue how many plugs I'll pull, probably a lot. Maybe every 6ish inches.

The nutsedge needs one more round of Certainty, but most of it is dead! Which is good. The grass has thickened up a lot and is growing fantastic with the warmer weather. The celebration is awesome. Going to start pulling plugs this weekend to get some more spread. Not sure how many plugs I'll pull, ...
