Just finished riding my bike for 40 minutes, doing 3 sets of 35 crunches, 2 sets of 30 side leg raises, 60 seconds of toe reaches and 3 sets of 7 leg raises.

This week and the one that just ended were soul suckingly busy. I want to measure my weight by the end of this week to see how much I've lost since last month but spending two weeks without a proper work-out will probably mean I haven't lost anything. Oh well, at least my belly is smoother and my butt is tighter~

Please excuse the horrible camera and lighting, but I got a new place recently and I decorated my desk! I wanted to share it with Samachan because it came out very cute. Those little easel things meant for holding picture frames turn out to be a great way to display artbooks. The only hard part is deciding which two to put up there.

One of these days I will bite the bullet on a real camera so I can stop using my terrible phone camera. If anyone has a recommendation for a good digital camera that is cheap and easy to use I would much appreciate it.

Good digital cameras aren't required to show off this kind of stuff unless you have a collection valued in the tens of thousands of dollars. Save the money for when you need that camera to take pictures of japanese cosplayers at convention grounds.

 No.23498

>>23494
well I ain't no photographer but I have a Nikon D90 and I went lens shopping a while back so I learned a little bit about this whole camera thing

You can find pretty much all good/mainstream Nikon cameras here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Nikon_DSLR_cameras
Anything "Mid-range" or lower and 2010-ish and late would do.
It's probably better to take something less professional but newer over something high-end but older.
A lot of newer models are virtually indistinguishable from older models. Like, for the very newest stuff, literally all they add is wifi support. But there are times when there is a notable tech leap between models. Luckily wikipedia documents all that in the articles so researching this is very easy.

When picking a lens buy something with an adjustable focal length and not a fixed-length pro thing. The ones with the biggest range are generally regarded for "beginners" and so they almost always have built-in AF so you don't need an expensive camera with an AF motor.
My personal lens recommendation is something like the very popular 18-105mm one or the very popular 18-140mm one. Both are bulky but they get the job done and have a very wide range. 18mm is relatively short/wide, especially for an adjustable lens, anything above 80mm is telephoto and allows you to really "zoom in". Having a lens that can do both is handy. Quality suffers, but it's not something you'd probably notice.

Also be warned: All this stuff is VERY expensive.

Yeah you are right, it's probably not worth the money right now. But I also travel a fair amount and would like to be able to take better pictures when I do. I suppose next time I am gonna be on a trip I'll consider getting a real camera.

Under the guise of curing my social retardation I got peer pressured into asking some cute girl for her number about a week ago and got very politely rejected.

You're supposed to be persistently asking out every girl you're attracted to with the inevitable majority of rejections bouncing off your iron self-esteem until someone who is willing to try you out goes out with you and then you have to keep doing it to keep her interested until you can agree to commit to each other.

Colonel von Borke? I don't think any Germans reached a general rank in the CSA Army. I've always found it a bit unfortunate how underrepresented the huge cohort of immigrant soldiers in the Civil War is in the popular imagination though. Aside from the tons of second-generation immigrants, part of the reason I tend to think of the war as our own belated revolution of 1848 is all the veterans of 1848 who fought in it. There were bona-fide French zouaves and Polish winged hussars and stuff fighting on American soil. Cool shit that too few people know about.

And yeah, I definitely agree. You also have the Irish born Confederate General Patrick Cleburne, when Irishmen are often associated with the Union.
It's a shame Japanese immigration only started after the Civil War. I think I found like one Japanese guy who enlisted in New York in a non-combat role and that's it for ethnic Japanese in the war. There were plenty of Chinese Confederates and Unionmen however.

My life is quite similar to yours, anon. I've always been an early bird, so I take care of most of my stuff in the morning, before even leaving for work, meaning, when I get home I can take the rest of the day easy.

At work, fortune smiles on me for I have problems dealing with more intimate relationships, but not so much with professional and more distant & formal ones such as with work colleagues. I'm not really bothered much by them and it's generally a straigthforward relationship. It seems you're struggling a bit here. I've always been a bit aloof and carefree. I can't really be bothered to worry about stuff that is not my job or within my interests. As such, I manage to get along well with everyone at work, simply by not sweating the small stuff, beginning with basic stuff such as greeting individually every morning, chitchatting and etcetera, to cooperating in team projects and crap. I also can't stand alcohol, due to traumatic past events, but also physically, just the smell makes me gives me low blood pressure and itchiness. I got coworkers to understand this and rather than shunning the fact that I don't go out it actually made them pity me. Win-win. To counteract this, I often invite them to a coffee shop near the office during lunch break and doing other stuff to pretend I care.

I once worked at a factory night shift and I'm thankful I got to go to college¹ and get a white-collar job, making dealing with all the bothersome stuff, well, less bothersome. Ultimately hugging my waifu at the end of the day makes it all worth it, for it was her who helped me getting through all of this S2 . Currently considering going for master's degree abroad in France² and possibly experience working in Japan in the not-so-distant future =).

¹an actual a viable option for eurofags. you can pay for tuitions earning minimum wage.

Oh, and for the last part, don't give it another thought. The anonymous online army maintains their duty of keeping normgroids out of imageboards, but the exact definition of which varies from person to person. For me it's someone with generic interests and goals, for others a wagenetorare, for some, anyone who isn't a virgin, and so on and so forth… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, it's kind of a funny feeling to finally have her after so long. Like, the anniversary she was supposed to be released for was three years ago. Looks very nice though.

I now realize that I recall very little from Spice and Wolf other than Korbo being an absolute treasure, it deserves a rewatch I think.
And I know how you feel about certain figures, I have probably 10 or 15 that I would never want to get rid of
But there was a time in my life where I had too much spending money and too much space in my apartment and decided to fill it with figures because I liked the way it looked. Several moves later I find myself feeling like a fool for it because I don't care to take half of my girls out of their boxes because I just don't care about them as much.

Calisthenics is the only strength training I'm doing. There's no point in spending money on a gym or equipment if you don't have the basic strength required to lift anything.

Besides, why would I want to be buff while wearing a skirt~?

>>23762
Your job involves carrying heavy things around, doesn't it? I doubt you have the energy, time and money needed to go to a gym. Focus on core strengthening exercises since they'll help you keep a healthy posture which helps in carrying heavy things since the pressure will be redirected from your spine to your core. I'm a fan of leg raises, side leg raises, planks and crunches. You could try those first so work is less strenuous and solve a third of your problem.

I don't have any background in fitness and the only thing I do is calories-in-calories-out while doing some exercises to have a basic level of strength and a toned sexy midriff.

Not so much anymore actually, although it is still active work where I am standing or walking all day. You are correct about the latter statement though. I really just want to get rid of my pudge, and to that end I am gonna attempt to quit drinking on weekdays.

Well, realistically speaking, he wouldn't have rebounded unless he does. The fact is that while calories aren't the end all be all of health in general they're more or less the end all be all of total weight. If you eat more than you burn up then you'll going to gain weight, whether in muscle mass or in pudge.

Cutting the sweet drinks and the beer is the best way to start. There are studies that show that human brains have serious issues identifying liquid calories as liquid calories unless they're heavy and creamy like milk, soup, or soy, especially if they're also cold, so stuff like beer and coke let you consume hundreds or even a thousand calories without your brain telling you to put down the fork. It's actually a weight gaining method for people who are underweight to constantly drink sugar water.

A light jog around the house, followed by a battery of calisthenics exercises. Yes, it's the Monte Cristo method. And it makes my butt so sore~!

Then I spent some more calories thanks to samachan. I loved this face enough to make a crop of it for my collection! Ah, Max, getting the best of both worlds… Lucky you!

>>23804
Assuming you do 30 minute light workouts 5 days a week while consuming the required amount to stay at your current weight, you'll see some results relatively quickly but you'll plateau just as fast since you'll no longer be at a caloric deficit for your new, lower weight. Personally, I'm at a healthy weight and am only doing this to improve muscle tone and posture (and to get all the boys and girls to gawk at me~!), so my goals are almost definitely a lot shallower than someone looking to lose weight.

>>23815

Speak for yourself, fattie. I drink just as much beer when I cut as when I bulk and I don't have any trouble. It's like a bag of crisps or a small sandwich in a bottle. Average beer has only about 50% more energy than wine per serving. Calorie restriction is all about portion control and anyway since alcohol itself is the most energy-dense component of any booze stronger than kvas it's a lot easier to overdrink wine than beer.

Right but then you look at the size of wine servings and beer servings and then compare with how much beer you can easily drink. Nobody selled canned wine but beer cans are cheap as dirt for packs of twelve or twenty and you go through them almost without thinking. Coke isn't that calorie-heavy either, the point is that you can drink tons of it without realizing how much you're drinking.

The smallest of activities makes a world of difference, even something as simple as walking. I don't know the statistics but I would think that countries with a decent public transport would have a leaner population than those that relies on private vehicles. I have always been borderline underweight and I walk a lot in the past but since becoming a shut-in I've become skinnyfat.

I will explain my logic
I drink something like 3-6 beers after work usually. The beers I drink tend to be 150-200 calories per serving. Just by saving the drinking for the weekends I am getting a significant calorie deficit on weekdays so long as I stick to water! And who knows I might be more productive since it is less enticing to just nap and become a vegetable when you aren't slightly drunk.
