GAINZZZ...
and... BOOKZZ
... and PROJECTZZZ and PLANZZZ

I got the first dose of the vaccine this week. I didn't have a choice of which one; I got the Pfizer.

Here's me, Living My Best Life:

I didn't think I had any post-immunization side-effects but 48 hours after the dose I noticed those "flu-like" symptoms they told me I might get. General feeling of muscular and mental weakness/fogginess. Nothing horrible, but I definitely wasn't at 100%. (Not that that's out-of-the-ordinary.) If I had been at work, I probably would have asked to go home early, if I could.

I got it because I generally am pro-vaccine and pro-anything medical, really, and because I was very sick through multiple periods last year, and I definitely do not want a major illness. Even if it's non-fatal, covid's often very tough.

Sometimes it's not-- Kurt Schichter had it, and said he had the symptoms of a mild to moderate cold. His wife had it worse, at the level of a bad, persistent cold. But nothing actually serious -- just miserable.

Who else has gotten the jab? Anyone else have side effects?

On to GAINZZZ: I have moderate GAINZZZ.

Over the two weeks of my new commitment to keto (not half-assed dirty keto/almost not keto that I was doing before), I had weak GAINZZZ. I lost maybe 2 1/2 or 3 pounds (at most) over two weeks. I guess that's okay weight loss but it's nothing terrific.

So I started a semi-fast on Sunday (having bone broth, cream in coffee, and some Whisps parmesan chips, keeping total calories consumed to below 500 or 600). I've had better GAINZZZ fasting, of course, dropping three pounds or a bit more in five days.

I'm in the high-energy state of keto. If you're overweight and haven't tried keto (low carb), you should give it a shot for a couple of weeks, if only for the really unbelievable levels of energy you have from ketones. It's not a small effect, not one that just might be psychosomatic. It's a definite, real, and large effect.

I know eventually this passes. Not that you have less energy, but you stop noticing the new energy, because it's just routine after a while.

Right now I'm noticing it a lot. I'm practically hyperactive.

I'm going to take inspiration from this:

A big fat pig with a big low-hanging belly to a fat farm to lose weight.

Note: Every word of that sentence was literal and accurate.

The pig needs to lose 110 pounds. He's only lost 55 by the end of the video.

But that's halfway there.

So tell me about your GAINZZZ. And the BOOKZZZ you're reading, and any PROJECTZZZ and PLANZZZ coming up!
