My wife and I just accepted a bid on our house less than 24 hours after it was in the market. We stand to walk away with around $30k in our pockets. I’ll finally be able to afford to be a 12th warrior. Considering that’s only slightly less than what I bring home in a year, it will be nice to finally have some financial security instead of debt hanging over our heads.

My wife is a social worker at a mental health hospital here in Cincinnati and she found out yesterday that all of the new admissions are coming to her unit so if someone has it when they show up she’ll have a high likelihood of contracting it. We are both young and relatively healthy but it’s still worrisome. For anyone who’s experiencing mental health issues you can text HOME to 741741 and be connected with a crisis counselor.

While I know it’s not physiologically possible, psychologically I feel like missing two weeks in the gym has caused my muscle mass to erode to my pre training days. It’s tough for sure. Like you I’m also still employed so I’m thankful that not having the gym has been the biggest impact I’ve felt of The Rona. I’m not a fan of feeling like I’m withering away though.

Bought enough to not have to leave the house for about two weeks, and everything that I bought I’ll be able to use regularly if we don’t need to stay in for a few weeks. People just need to be smart about it.

If he has a mullet I think we might have found Mike Gundy’s 11w burner account.

That’s good that that works for you. That doesn’t mean it’s going to work for everyone. I know that wouldn’t work for me and my fitness goals. Adherence is probably the biggest factor when it comes to how people eat. If that works for you and you’re able to adhere to it then that’s great, but that doesn’t mean the next person will be able to adhere to that plan.

I did. Don’t see what it had to do with calorie restriction being a myth. I agree that counting calories isn’t effective and neither is dieting. Most people who diet will either fail their diet or regain their weight within 5 years. Most people need to be educated on portion control and food selection to lead to a shift in their lifestyle. 

I also all free with most of what was said regarding the eating more “whole foods” and less processed foods, and avoiding added sugars. For most of the population carbohydrates are fine as long as they’re not eaten in excess. Same thing can be said about fats and protein. If eaten in excess all are stored as fat in the body. I could eat 10,000 calories of grass fed beef a day and if I’m not burning 10,000 calories a I’m going to get fat.
