Challenge – Day 5

Wow, Day 5 included an interesting if not time consuming meal and a good amount of exercise.  We spent about 35 minutes in the pool with 25 of that being pretty intense.  So far so good, we are still on track.

I will say that the recipe for dinner is pretty involved and my first time through this took 2 hours or so from start to finish.  🙁  But the flavor was really good, so maybe it was worth it?  We’ll see after reheating the frozen leftovers just how much so.

Challenge – Day 4

Here we are at the end of Day 4 and all is well.

We had a few reservations about this day due to feeling a bit hungry after Day 3.  As well, I wasn’t sure how much broccoli I could choke down with the dinner meal.  But, that was not the case.  The meal was actually fairly tasty and the broccoli added a different flavor and was easy to eat.  And for a picky eater like myself, that’s a bonus.

Challenge – Day 3

Here we are finished with day 3.

I will say I was still a bit hungry after today’s dinner but not so much that I was actually tempted to grab some additional food.  Not sure if it was the incessant desire to make this change for myself or sheer will power, but we got through the night.  Also, I do feel a more hungry on the morning of day 4 than I have the previous two days.

Challenge – Day 1

So starting out day 1 I did some measurements to use as a baseline for this little adventure.  NOTE:  Pictures of myself were taken of this day and will be posted later as before/after images.

Height – 5′ 9″

Weight – 274.2

Waist – 51.25

Neck – 18.75

We don’t want to concern ourselves with the daily micromanagement of those measurements.  We just want to see how we are doing after a set amount of time.  So will be taking these measurements every 2 weeks.

We did it, we survived the first day of our new eating lifestyle.

Good Day Everyone,

But seriously.

Voicemeeter Banana Setup

The first image below is of virtual sound mixer Voicemeeter Banana.

At first it can be confusing to look at so I’ll start with some basics.

Look at the upper left area named “Hardware Input 1”, this is where you will assign an input device.  This can be a stand-alone mic, headset mic, web cam mic, etc.  Simply click on “Select Input Device” (or the already selected device name) to change the configuration.

Going down the same column, we see INTELLIPAN, this will allow you to configure changes to the input prior to output.  The default will be fin

e for most applications.  But if you would like to try it out just drag the red box around and find a setting you like.  You can always put it back to default by double-clicking the red box.

The next section AUDIBILITY allows you to configure the Compression and the Gate for this device.
