Sims 4 – I’ve Been Doing Some Building

I wanted to share a couple of my more recent builds! I haven’t been finding as much time to play since the weather’s gotten nicer. Being outdoors has definitely taken over more of my free time, but I have done these few things recently!

The first one I’m calling Teal Comfort. I made this small house for my Sim-self and my Sim-corgi. If I were living on my own this is probably pretty similar to what I would want for myself, this is missing the massive board game collection though!

Punk Rock Legacy – Apartment Upgrade?

During the stream last night I made some changes to the family’s apartment. I was having a difficult time with the layout and everything in the place. So they sold all their stuff, tore down some walls, and remodeled. However, after upgrading the kitchen and installing the bathrooms there wasn’t much money left for anything else. It’ll be okay because now there’s room for each person to put their own spin on the place! Here are a few screenshots from the stream. Continue reading “Punk Rock Legacy – Apartment Upgrade?”

You May Be Wondering…

What I’ve been up to lately. The 3 people out there that actually read this silly thing. Well, the truth of the matter is I haven’t been up to much. I barely hit the gym in the last few months, but I have watched a lot of Game of Thrones. 6 more episodes and we’ll be ready for the new season Sunday!

I haven’t even really done much board gaming or Sims 4 playing. I have read the first 3 Jem and the Hologram graphic novels and all of Locke and Key. So that’s something. To be perfectly honest I’ve been in a bit of a slump, and it’s taken me a while to start seeing a way out. I’m getting there. Slowly, and I’m looking forward to getting back to some Sims 4 streaming actually! I’m going to start working on a regular streaming schedule, and I’m looking into ways to record my sessions to post to Youtube, maybe. I’m still not sure if that’s something I want to do. I’ve spent some time building stuff lately, and I want to stretch that creative muscle some more so I’m thinking about doing some speed build videos, but there’s already SO MANY of those I’m not really sure if it’s even worth it, but if I’m going to be doing the building anyways I may as well record it and see what happens.

Punk Rock Legacy – Some Offline Play

Hi everyone! It’s been a while, but real life’s been crazy so fake Sim life hasn’t been at the front of my mind. In addition, I realized in my last stream that we were in a bit of a boring spot in game. Sooooo, I played some offline. I meant to just get to a point that’d be fun to stream again, but I sort of just kept going. WHOOPS! I took some screenshots to get you all caught up. I’ll be streaming again soon now that life is starting to get back to normal. Continue reading “Punk Rock Legacy – Some Offline Play”

Punk Rock Legacy – It’s Baby Time!

I didn’t update after my 2nd and 3rd streaming sessions because finding time has been difficult. So here I am, 4 days after the 3rd session to give you all an update, and to get ready for my next stream (Sunday at 8pm EST)

Last time I said the mission for the next stream would be to get Toni knocked up, continue the feud with Salim, and get a promotion. All of those things were accomplished and then some between the two streams! Continue reading “Punk Rock Legacy – It’s Baby Time!”

Punk Rock Legacy – Sims 4 Twitch Stream

Last night I did my first Sims 4 life stream. I’m not sure how frequently/consistently I’ll be able to stream, but I’m going to try to find a schedule that works. I took several screenshots from in game so I’m going to post those with a bit of story here. Again, I’m not sure if this is something I’ll do regularly, maybe only when big things happen in the game, but I’d consider her first few days of life pretty big!

Sunday Meal Prep

Every week (well, most every week) I write up a meal plan to get the family through the week. I write up my grocery list as I’m doing this so I don’t forget anything important. Sunday I go to the grocery store (sometimes I use our grocery store’s pick up service where I order everything online and they bring it to my car) and prep my snacks and lunches for the five day work week ahead. Some weeks I cook a lot. Some weeks I don’t. This was a week I decided to do very little cooking. I’m going to share some pictures and the calorie and macro breakdowns for these things.

img_20190127_141113Lunch:

  • 4oz honey smoked turkey breast – 140 calories
  • Hard boiled egg (not pictured) – 70 calories
  • 28grams garlic hummus – 70 calories
  • Green/yellow/orange bell peppers – 35 calories
  • 50grams green seedless grapes – 35 calories

Totals: 350 calories | 23g Carbs | 12g Fat | 36g Protein

It doesn’t look like much, but I promise it’s filling! However, I may regret not having warm food for my lunches this week since it’s supposed to be bitterly cold!

I have A LOT of calories tied up in snacks. Sometimes I eat them all, sometimes I skip some of the snacks in favor of a big dinner.

Snacks:img_20190127_141108

  • Babybel cheese – 70 calories
  • Light string cheese – 50 calories
  • 150grams vanilla greek yogurt – 113 calories
  • 50grams blueberries – 29 calories
  • 1oz dark chocolate almonds (not pictured) – 160 calories

Totals: 422 calories | 31g Carbs | 22g Fat | 31g Protein

On most days I’m looking to stick to 1300 calories. On the days I lift I’ll be closer to 1500 with some added post-workout food stuffs.

My macros for 1300 days: 110g Carbs | 50g Fat | 105g Protein. For 1500 calorie days these will all increase evenly. 20g Carbs, 15g Fat, and 20g Protein added.

Over the last few months I’ve been slowly increasing my protein. I’ve always struggled to get enough in the past since I don’t want to add protein powders. Nothing against them. I just don’t want the added expense.

I spent roughly an hour in the kitchen getting all of this together. I could’ve gotten this done in 45 minutes, but I took my time since the kiddo was napping.

I’m feeling pretty good about food/workouts for this week. I have a dedicated gym work day on Wednesday, and I’ll go again Friday night, Saturday, or Sunday to round out the week. And as long as I’m not overly sore (like today) I’ll do a home lifting routine another day this week.

I’m planning on posting these each week. If people are interested I can add my dinners to this also. While my snacks and lunches will be the same through the week dinners will not.
