Thank God It's GAINZZZDay

I have no GAINZZZ these last two weeks according to any measurement. In fact, my Stupid Scale claims I've gained two pounds. And even though I've actually gained some muscle (but not two pounds' worth), it claims my bodyfat % has zoomed up by six percent.

But I look pretty good. I'm not wearing those shirts I used to pick out that were strategically drapey to try to hide my belly.

Here are some things to look at:

A Time article from last March about intermittent fasting.

Jason Fung put out a new book (with Livin' La Vida Low Carb blogger Jimmy Moore) all about Intermittent Fasting this past fall. There's an article about it here. I haven't read it yet.

Pretty awesome video about building your own DIY power rack with about $200 in lumber and a little bit of easy-to-find pipe. And if you dig that, check their other videos to see how to add a pull-up bar to the rack, and dip bars, and a pull-down pulley rig for doing lat pulls and triceps extensions.

I really wanted to do that -- I really want to do that -- but I estimated that the odds I would cut at least one finger off with a saw at better than 60% and figured multiple surgeries would take the price of the thing higher than $200 for me. But if you're handy with tools, your costs might be lower.

And speaking of DIY: I also wanted to hear about any progress on the hobbies you've started recently, or any plans you're making for the near future.

Oh: I wanted to mention this: A commenter (forget who) recommended citrulline to me. I forget the reason offered. I thought it was recommended as a recovery supplement. But I think it's more of a pre-workout supplement-- energy-boosting.

Anyway, it actually does seem to work. I have more energy when I take it than when I don't. So much so I threw some more money away buying a pre-workout stack that contains citrulline (along with a lot of caffeine and yohimbe, whatever that is).

Caffeine obviously gives you energy. But that part makes me jittery.

The citrulline, though: I think that actually does work on its own, without caffeine-like side effects.
