Nice!

Yesterday, I put on some disposable rubber gloves, and picked up a dead bunny by our driveway by its hind paws. It was stiff as a board, and there were three flies on it. It had no signs of trauma, disease, or blood from the nose as if it was poisoned. It looked like it was a perfectly healthy specimen, except for the bit about being dead. It's a mystery to me how it died.

Anyway, I placed it in a garbage bag and threw my gloves in after it. It's in the garbage can out at the curb now.

Good times.

Progress, getting strong. Last night I did deadlifts, shrugs, bent-over barbell rows, barbell/reverse/hammer curls. Heavy enough that it was hard to un-bend my fingers, and I got nauseous from lactic acid build up.

I'm stuffing myself with food to maximize hypertrophy while my body is reacting aggressively. If/when I get too strong for my connective tissues, I'll reduce the calories and start burning off my visceral fat.

Subcutaneous fat loss is not a goal, but it should come as a result of my base metabolism increase.

Good work man. I don't have the discipline for that.

Thanks. For most of my life, it was just an ego thing. I had a naturally lean, aesthetic physique and it was gratifying to see my veins bulging out. This is the first time I’ve ever tried to "bulk up"— all compound movements, no cables/machines, and surplus calorie intake. I’m fat and strong, it's totally different.

I'm doing a lot of things.

Today, I'm using YouTube to expand my brain to include how to use SketchUp. I plan to use it to create a plan for the shop I'm going to build.
