Monday Moron Medical Monitoring Thread

Two things:

First, I don't know what to write about. I don't know very much about health, and I've exhausted the topics I can pretend I know about.

I could write about sleep but I think I've said it all before and it's pretty obvious -- it's mostly the same crap you see in every clickbait "How to get better sleep" article.

If anyone has ideas or tips, drop them in the comments, and I'll put them into the post. Maybe I'll elaborate if you jog my memory and I can remember some #BroScience about it.

Second: I took almost the whole week off from any kind of physical activity. I was sick. Sick of working out, that is! No but really I felt like crap with my sleep all screwed up again after a night of insomnia.

I'm not sure about the chicken and egg here: Did I stop working out because I felt like crap, or did I begin feeling like crap precisely because I'd stopped working out?

My GAINZZZ are null. Now, I have a scale that records my weight, connected to my FitBit. So, last week, when I was working out and sweating a lot, I dropped to an all-time low weight of 174. Well not all-time, but that's the lowest I've ever seen it since... I can't remember when.

But as I mentioned, I suspected that was due to dehydration due to sweating a ton.

So, what I've done for a week is weigh myself, and then delete all the weighings to keep that 174 as my official weight.

At least as far as FitBit knows.

But in fact I've gone back up to 179. I don't know if I've gained a pound or kept steady at 179. The latter, I think.

I don't know how much longer I'm going to keep lying to FitBit about this. I think it's beginning to suspect.

Right now I'm in a dangerous place: If you work out and diet for a few weeks, that becomes your habit. It's easier to keep up with these things because you just do them. You're not making daily decisions about whether to work out: It's just your habit. You just do it.

When you start making decisions, that stops being a habit, and becomes a conscious choice and conscious effort.

And then when you take a full week off, that is now your habit.

I haven't gone off-diet but I have gone off-exercise-regime. I am planning, sort of, to work out again tonight. But we'll have to see how that goes.

It's now a thing I have to make a decision about, and when you make decisions, you can make all sorts of justifications as to why you should just sit down and watch TV for the night. Like: I got insomnia again last night and I feel like crap.

Yeah that happened again. Is it an excuse to sit around like a slug and lose all my GAINZZZ?

Right now it sort of sounds like a pretty good excuse.

I sure hope I'm going to grit up and do what I know I should do. But I don't have that much confidence in myself.

So: Tell me about your GAINZZZZ. I assume most of you have beat mine, unless we are somehow in non-menstrual sync and most of us just gave up last week.

Update: I'll watch this video again to try to get hyped for a workout.
