GAINZZZZ in the Age of Lockdowns

What are you doing for your GAINZZZ?

I have very low GAINZZZ. I'm holding steady, which I guess is something. I'm semi-fasting two days per week (note, it's just two days).

Also note, it's semi-fasting. I have 200, 300 calories on "fasting" days.

The good thing about this is that you tend to stay in keto. I have problems staying in keto, but if I semi-fast two days a week, I stay in keto for most of the week. I start going out of it after four or five days, but then I go back into the semi-fast.

I'm also half-walking, half-running about three miles, two or three times a week, depending on the weather. I'm trying to get back to full running, but it's taking a lot longer than I expected. The body doesn't snap back as quick as it used to when you're looking down the barrel of 29 years old.

I'm going out in just shorts and a t-shirt to get the UV light and the natural vitamin D production. I kind of feel like a maniac doing that but vitamin D fights winter depression, as well as just being a generally necessary hormone.

If you want to try that, 1pm is a good time of the day to try it. The UV light is still near its noonday peak, and the world is a little warmer than it was at noon. Any day where the "feels like" temperature is 38 degrees or better is fine for shorts and t-shirt. Chilly but doable. Any wind over 15 mph is a no-go as far as being so inadequately dressed. Wind really chills things down.

None of this is giving me the GAINZZZ I need, unfortunately. I have to start weightlifting again at some point. (I just realized: I don't need to weightlift. I just need to start with in-home calesthenics for now. I just have to start doing push-ups, for crying out loud. Thinking about weightlifting just makes me not want to do it. I need to start smaller and easier.)

What about you? What are you doing for GAINZZZ?!
