I think it’s funny that someone would care more about the “pump” than really building muscle, but it can assist with that as well. Of course you build muscle up by tearing it down. The more blood during the healing, the faster you recover, and the faster you can work out again, meaning more muscle. But nobody markets it that way. It did lead to a funny discussion at GNC. The guy was going on about how pumped I would get and this and that, and I’m like look at me dude. Do I look like I care about “being pumped?” That said, it is kind of cool.
I also am really getting in to probiotics.
For Lent, my wife and I gave up meat. I always try to give up something that can actually improve my life while making me realize I am making a sacrifice. It was easy the first few days, but it is definitely getting more difficult after a week. Whatever it is, this week I have finally started to lose some weight. I weight myself last night and I had lost a pound and a half since Sunday. I know some of that is fluctuation, but that was after a big dinner and beers. I really think the lack of meat plus the probiotics are what are turning the tide. I hope to stick close to vegetarianism when Lent is over. We will see. I am not saying no meat, just very little.
Sticking to it…
So that’s my update. Still sticking to it, hopeful for a speedy recovery, but going a little crazy.
