Mislaid Monday Moron Medical Monitoring Thread

I forgot to put this up yesterday.

I've got no particularly good advice. I do not know how i broke my stall. I've been drinking a lot more water -- who knows, maybe that helped.

I have heard it said that while people debate this expensive supplement or that one, they ignore the cheapest and most effective supplement of all: Just water.

Oh, and sleep. My sleep's been better. Not sure why. But they say that sleep is as important to getting into shape as exercise (or, well, pretty much as important).

A friend and I were talking about the frustration of attempting a body recomposition (not really trying to "lose weight," exactly). It's not that things move slowly -- if they moved slowly but consistently, it would be reassuring.

The problem is that nothing seems to happen for a couple of weeks, then suddenly you drop weight. Even after, say, you said "Ah the hell with this Manorexia, I want Taco Bell."

It's the fact that, past the first two months, inputs and outputs seem correlated in only a slight way, if at all.

I also started having more protein powder. In theory, that should slow weight loss. But then, I only have it before and after workouts, so who knows. Maybe it gets used up without turning to fat.

Anyway, my gains have been very slow but are pretty consistent (consistently slow, that is) since I broke the plateau. I almost put up a Bonus Medical Monitoring post on Saturday for one reason: Because after working out I dropped to 176, the lowest weight I've seen since college. I wanted to put up a thread and say "176!" because i was pretty sure I just sweated two pounds off and it would be back by Sunday.

Well it was. I'm back up to 179 but still, under 180. That was a big goal and a major reason for this thread: To keep myself going past 180 (I've been at 180 a lot) and finally get myself down to a reasonably trim 170.

I guess I'm losing a pound a week now...? Or a half a pound..?

And I suppose that's... something?

So:

TELL ME ABOUT YO GAINZZZZ, BITCHEZZZZ

Holy Crap: So, for four or five months, I've been putting butter in my coffee, and MCT oil.

But not blending it, as many recommended.

Why? Because I'm a dude and I'm lazy and I always look to Reduce Steps and Increase Efficiency even if it means I'm drinking horrible coffee with a quarter inch pool of buttery fat on top of it.

After all, Real Men do not seek comfort. It's indulgent and womanly.

Real men drink disgusting coffee. Because they're Men.

So, anyway, I discovered I actually had an immersion blender. I bought it a year ago at Target or something, when I had planned to start this, and never opened up the box.

I started blending the coffee.

Wow.

Now it's no longer black coffee with a yellow pool of grease on top of it. Now it's.... well, it tastes like coffee with luscious cream in it.

Now I actually enjoy coffee again instead of just wolfing down black coffee with a skin of partially melted butter.

How did you goofs not insist to me I just blend it?

If you're drinking it the "Ace Way," that is, the Moron Way, you're missing out. Spend $20 or $30 on an immersion blender -- you just stick it in the coffee and blend. You'll be glad you did.

One thing, you have to put the coffee in a taller glass to blend (otherwise it will get sloshed around, out of the cup), but that doesn't take long. You can just rinse that glass after you use it, stick the blender in it, and set it aside for tomorrow.
