Lol.
Heard a loud boom about an hour ago here at the other warehouse I'm managing. Power went out for several minutes before coming back on, except my office and a few other circuits are still dead. So no computer, no internet, no phones, no security cameras, etc. Dead in the water, basically. Called my operations manager about 40 minutes ago and he said he'll send our maintenance guy over and he'll call me back shortly.
No call back and no maintenance guy yet. :thisisfine:

When John Force wins the Winternationals, he doesn't say his engine was too loud.
:word: I can always stuff some foam ear plugs in if the noise is too crazy.

Ran the 8k unit last night and it never fully cooled the room down :disgust: I should have stuck with my gut and gone 10k. I’ll play with this one again tonight and if it runs all night long again without being able to get the room down to 68° I’ll see if Home Depot will let me return /exchange it.
You sleep at 68 degrees ?! That’s fucking rich. :wasteful:

Btw what was the temp when you first plugged it in? ACs don’t just go down to your desired temp. They need to continuously work.

Yeah I turn mine on like 2 hr before I go to sleep so the room cools off. Everything in the room is hot, it all needs to cool off too.

I learned this the hard way during our last heat wave… we went to the beach … so I had everything off… then when we got back I turned it on… it took the house down from 85 to 76 but just got stuck there without being able to move it down further. Granted it was 110 out. However yesterday I had this bitch set at 70 … it was 104 out and it was able to keep it at 70 all day.

It did run for 12 hrs straight though.

We went with the exact same Toshiba unit we had in San Diego and I don’t remember it being nearly this loud. Must be a room acoustics thing.

I will admit to fucking up and not turning it on until I was getting into bed, but it still ran all night without kicking off once once the room reached the desired temp. Eventually it was cooler than 68 outside so I shut it off and opened a different window to just let the cool air in.

Added carrots to my chicken shake this morning. 5/7. Will keep doing that as an easy way to sneak additional veggies into the diet and get a wider variety. Going to play with adding celery and radishes as well, make it a whole goddamn chicken soup.

9oz of chicken per serving gets old fast. So I split 5oz out and blend it up with some mixed greens and homemade chicken stock from when I pressure cooked the chicken. My life is infinitely easier doing this. The other 4oz is grilled and eaten with rice and veggies.

I still haven't been able to get into this. I've tried counting macros and getting 180g of protein per day...damn it's tough. I usually get to ~150g and call it good. But that's partly why I'm not yuuuuge.

Just totaled mine up.. ~4500 calories a day. 388g protein (180ish just from the 22oz of chicken I eat), 540g carbs, 71g fat.

And I lost weight my last two check-ins so we’ll likely be throwing another 50g of carbs in this coming week.
