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:

vaccinatedace.jpg

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!

6 I've been stacking up cardio gainz with all this great weather.

Glad to hear the keto diet is going well. I've incorporated a vegetarian only dinner on Mondays to shake things up. It's been a good source of fiber, vitamins, protein, and it's cheap on the wallet too.

I felt flush in the post jab waiting room, and had a mild headache but nothing outside of what I normally feel in terms of weakness, though thanks to the stem cell transplant a year and a half ago I has a lot of weakness most the time anyway.

15 Not getting the jab. But then again I haven't been to a doctor in nigh on 25 years, so I am odd that way.

Hubby and I spent the morning in the wood, harvesting hickory and ash for next winter's wood pile. Good, honest work, lots of lifting and hauling through the trails.

He's working on splitting it and stacking, but I am being lazy the rest of the day.

I'm still having a hard time getting my protein/fat ratio correct.
I've started putting 1oz of cheddar cheese on top of my morning eggs.
But, how do you eat enough fat when you're having steak and veggies for dinner?

21 J and J experimented on me, with their one and done jab about three weeks ago. My skin has not yet molted.
I felt a mild physical sense of not being completely right and also had a slight headache for the afternoon after getting the dose, but was perfectly fine the next day.
Now I'm ready to rock and roll.

29 I got Pfizer #1 (#2 Apr 12), as did my spouse and oldest.

We were well hydrated and ate the bland food diet before and after. All of us sailed through shot #1 with no need for meds (only one of us had the "owwy" arm, but it wasn't bad enough to medicate).

On to shot #2. I have a week of anti-inflammatory and bland food coming, and a whole bunch of tea with ginger, water, and soup (the secret to keeping the side effects down as much is possible is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate...

She's said that the vaccine is her portal to normal. She doesn't want the boys to get it either, so she's anticipating the vaccine being cleared for children.

She doesn't want to wear masks anymore if they won't do anything for her. She doesn't buy the idea that masks are necessary after the vaccine.

40 Down to 232 this morning. Since I'm a cat-lick, I can't eat meat on Fridays, so I had some cheese, tea with cream, and two bags of steamed broccoli with melted butter. I figure I can keep up a pattern of semi-fasting on M,W,F, with lots of meat and veggies on T,Th and then a relaxed attitude on the weekends. I did that last year and dropped to 214.

Only went to the gym once this week, but I'll go tonight and run on the treadmill. I've found that if I work out too much I have too many cravings to eat, so I'm going to limit myself to lifting twice a week, running or long walks three times a week.

Since work is slow I need to get back into a routine of working on professional development stuff (python, qgis, VBE).

43 No poke here, not until I feel it's safe... which will be never. But, we'll see. Things change. Weight issues are always a problem for those of us that are 29, or celebrating an anniversary of 29. Over the last year of COVID lockdown slothness I've lost about 8 lbs.

Posted by: Martini Farmer - Now a Pirate, Hoisting the Black Flag at April 02, 2021 04:25 PM (3H9h1)

44 I've lost 70 pounds on keto, but I'm going through several variations of intermittent fasting to see which ones works best to lose the last few stubborn pounds. The 20/4 (fast for 20 hours, eat within a 4 hour window) was disastrous, where i gained 6 pounds, now trying alternative day fasting, but it only helped me dropped that 6 pounds I gained, so still stuck.

I think my keto has been too dirty, been having keto chocolates with soluble corn fiber, and that can stall things if you eat too much of it.

There was a little soreness at the injection site, but nothing too bad. 48 hours later, both my wife and I had nausea and vomiting. I'm not 100% sure it was a reaction to the vaccine, but can't rule it out, either.

66 I have secured the metal to weld a stand for my 30" smoker, so that I don't have to kneel anymore to screw with it. And I taught myself to actually weld - MIG, and it's flux-core, so not the prettiest - but the joints look fine and you can't beat them apart with a 3 lb. hammer. Using a pretty basic Hobart 140, and a pair of saw horses with a kinda' flat piece of quarter plate for a table.

I will have the main piece - salvaged 1" grating - blasted. I know a shop that will run it through for me for nothing. And then I will weld, weld, and weld some more. Then paint. And paint again. Then enjoy a 2' by 4' table upon which my smoker sits, on which I can pull my fire box and sit it down upon, and still not squat. Which will make me happy.

This is my GAINZZ.

71 I finally took a blacksmithing class last weekend, after a break of about a year and a half, but I didn't stay for the second day. I wasn't feeling well, and the class honestly didn't interest me. I think it was the instructor's teaching style. I'm going to check out the local blacksmith association here and see what else is available, but I probably won't sign up for anything else until the mask requirements are gone.

What I really want to do is sign up for art classes this summer, since I miss drawing or painting. That, and take some violin lessons to start trying to learn that again.

Also working my way through "A Brief History of Disease, Science & Medicine."

The "A Brief History of Disease, Science & Medicine" is only brief due to its length. The content makes it otherwise.

According to the BMI calculation, I am no longer obese, I am overweight. I've lost over 35 lbs.

86 I would only say the jab isn't for everyone and the studies don't cover all medical conditions with any consistency. For example, if you're a stroke patient or inclined to those issues, the vaccine has shown in some patients an increase in coagulation. It's a small sample, but it's still there. Some note that getting COVID also seriously increases coagulation. But that's only in serious hospitalization cases. So if you weigh the options and your general risk of contraction/demo group is low. Wait until more data is available.

87 No vaccine for me. Had COVID. Have had hangovers of greater intensity and duration. Lucky I guess.

On Gainzzz, after initial loss of around 20 lbs in the last 30 days (probably a lot of water weight), I'm now gaining, which is intended. From a low of 165 I'm now 173. Boxing again.

100 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.

I am still dithering on getting it because there is a miniscule chance I may have a very negative reaction. But my doctor is encouraging me to do so because it will be another layer of protection for my parents (they've had their shots). So I don't know.

As far as books, I got my copy of Way of Kings Prime and it's absolutely fascinating. The key characters in Way of Kings, and the entire Stormlight Archive really, aren't even in the book. In the intro Sanderson discusses how he was rejected from everything because his books were too long and stop focusing on magic and make Earth like worlds so he said screw it I'm going to make the world I want.

I think it worked out okay for him.

It helps that medical took it 1st - I doubt they wanted to screw themselves on purpose.

And with politicians also taking it early, it's certain that if something does go wrong long term, more money than G&d will be spent to fix the issue and we'll be able to sue for as much as needed (since it's only "not allowed to sue" until it's not...as we've learned about everything these past few years...vaccine makers will pay through the nose if they f'ed these up, and they know it...)

Tuesday morning, found out I would have to be swabbed again, after waiting around for 5 hours to tell me this.

So I was swabbed again and had to wait another hour for the results.

While out an about today I happened to see a motorhome stopped at an intersection and they had a Repsol trials bike mounted on a rear bumper carrier - which led to a flood of happy emotions.
PS: It's a super rare thing to see trials motorcycles outside of events

142 Ace, got my shot on Wednesday. Was ok that day. Started feeling punky yesterday, definitely off my game. A little better today. I work from home but if I was in office, I would have gone home yesterday. Arm is swollen. I get a flu shot every year and tetanus boosters when needed. This is definitely different and more. The skin on my arm feels burned and scraped. But, that's not the story. The lady two ahead of me in line on Wed got her shot, sat down, threw up and passed out. The pharmacy sprang into action, very impressed with their response. Cleaned her up, called the CVS and CDC and the whole nine yards. Apparently there is a protocol in place for what they are expected to do immediately. I only know this because I eavesdropped. She was in her early 30s.

Posted by: Patti at April 02, 2021 04:37 PM (1bKMN)

143 the thing is they've found that older people (the ones that the covid is real hard on) are also affected badly by the vaccine.

Now what do you do if you're older?

Take the vaccine and maybe get real sick and/or die?

Or take your chances and then get the covid and get sick and/or die?

Which is why I po'd at this talk of a vaccine id. And what's worse you know some corporation (walmart i'm looking at you) will demand a vaccine id no matter what the law is or whether you have a right to say what goes in your body. And they'll say that's fine but you're not coming in here and that's our right.

And the gope will say well if you don't like it start your own walmart.

I saw a doctor about my heart health yesterday (nothing to report at all) and he whispered to me that he had his second shot also. Like he didn't want anyone in his office to know, weird.

Best gentle cure is . . . (wait for it) Prunes. Yes simple old dried prunes are the very best anal decongestant.

I hate the pills cause they're kinda abrupt if you know what I mean.

163 Still waiting for the 'or else' phase of the vaccine.

Then it's time for lawyers.
Posted by: AlaBAMA

This is coming. Soon, they won't be able to give the damn things away (Not saying the vaccine is bad, just that soon supply will greatly outstrip demand.)

Then the drug industry will really push to make it mandatory. They are good at that, and the push will be very very hard.

Personally, I think no one under 40 should get it unless they have serious other issues and are high risk. I don't think it should be appropriate for healthy people until you get into the over 65 demo. I mean, just looking at risk.

In age adjusted mortality, the US death rate has jumped very high last year,... as high as the normal trend way back in the the dark, devastating days of 2005.

One of the blurbs on the paperback says, "Powers was one of the first to put fantasy back in the city where it belongs! If you're tired of endless quests through murky woods and lonely mountains, this is the place to start."

One word: Passive Hanging.

What's happening is you are destroying your biceps tendons, but you think you're destroying you Rotator Cuff.

You are Impinging your Tendon and displacing from it's "grooves."

Go get a chin-up/pull-up bar and just Hang. Hang everyday for 10-20 seconds. You will re-align all your shit and your shoulders will feel great. (Don't do any pull-ups/chin-ups).

198 All my coworkers are lefty fucknizzles.

Pre-election, absolutely none of them would consider getting the dangerous Trump vaccine.

Post election, instantly became pro-vaccine and are bewildered that I haven't gotten my shot already. Literally an overnight change in stance.


They're a hive-mind cult. They believe whatever a significant plurality of leftists believe. If you separate them from the hive mind, you can interrupt the signal by using leftist Marxian dialog, but that only lasts until they re-connect with the hive.

There are plenty of videos of this trick where someone reads quotes from Nancy Pelosi or someone and tells them it's from Trump or Cruz and they act sufficiently outraged, until the trick is revealed, and they immediately decide it wasn't that bad.

From what I have heard, the second vaccine may induce more ill feeling, so I appreciate the advice to hydrate.

I need to lose some weight, so I have been doing recipes from my keto cookbook. I had lost about 4 pounds last week but then had family over for an amazing chicken marsala and roasted potatoes dinner. Gained back 2 pounds.

203 I can't get the safe effective drug HCQ that acts with zinc to stop this virus. The institutions stopping HCQ have been corrupted by the ChiComs. People are pushing this vaccine to the point one wonders if groceries will be available with out showing "your papers." The corrupt government and corporations are still pushing face masks after the results show no benefit. They have zero credibility.
I take vitamin D, zinc, and quercetin supplements daily. Quercetin is a weaker ionophore than HCQ. It's in many foods at a low level. It is about 50:50 if I have already have the Wuhan flu.I consider my risk from this virus as very low. I think the risk of one of these vaccines to cause a fatal, massive over-reaction immune response to the next virus out of China to be higher than my risk from the current virus.If I'm wrong, one old guy dies. If I'm right, I get to have lots of free stuff after I drag the bodies away. I hope you have all bought lots of ammo. And booze. Lots of booze. Its going to be kind of lonely. I'll need booze.

243 Oh, and I'm reading a 1979 Del Rey fantasy novel, The Drawing of the Dark
by Tim Powers. It's set in a recognizable early Renaissance Europe,
Venice and Trieste and Vienna so far, and is written in a very engaging
style. Its hero: a middle-aged soldier named Brian Duffy -- and it
involves beer.



One of the blurbs on the paperback says, "Powers was one of the
first to put fantasy back in the city where it belongs! If you're tired
of endless quests through murky woods and lonely mountains, this is the
place to start."

That book is great! A friend of mine in college encouraged me to read it for the same reason--BEER! (and I don't even drink, but I still enjoyed the story!)Another of his books, The Anubis Gates is an interesting take on one of the paradoxes in time travel.

bottom graph is age adjusted, meaning it adjusts for changing demographic as population ages and there are more elderly.

Also notice that lat year was no worse than 2005. Yet somehow we managed to survive in 2005 without lockdowns and masks.

I have avoided it for too long. About two years ago I had an occasional sore tooth and after I got it taken care of my health improved drastically. It was no big deal (just a filling,) but before I got it fixed I was very sick for about a week. Maybe coincidence, or maybe my body was working too hard fighting the infection in the tooth.

297 On the vaccine push - I agree that it seems heavy handed. I don't think anyone should be forced to get it - we don't force any other vaccine, so why this one?

That said, for those on the fence, I do think you'll be happier if you go get it. And you help out folks like me - with blood cancer, it's always a crap shoot if I develop any protection from any vaccine, but I give them a go b/c it can only help...

If it helps the decision-making, think of it like the kids taking the polio sugar cubes back in the day. They didn't know if it would work, and polio wasn't always lethal, but it did really, really suck to have long term...

299 I find as I get older I like to read books which I have enjoyed in the past. One of these is "The Watchful Mind" which is teachings on the prayer of the prayer of the heart by an anonymous Eastern Orthodox monk. (There are some theories as to who he was, but he evidently didn't want to be known.) The prayer of the heart has a long tradition in the Eastern Orthodox Church in which a monk says, "Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me."

Anyway, I thought this was a beautiful passage in the book:

A certain monk asked God to show him the glory and brightness of the saints. he was deemed worthy to see that which he desired in the following manner...the right spiritual eye of his soul opened and saw the divine glory and inexpressible joy enjoyed in heaven by all the saints. The monk said he saw all the saints in such glory and blessedness that each saint shone as brightly as the sun, and all of them were chanting "Alleluia" in a most sweet voice.
"If the sun, which is a singular bright object, shines in the entire world and illuminates it, think about how much brighter, radiant, luminescent and glorious it is in heaven where there are thousands and tens of thousands."

375 My husband and I had the last of two shots (Pfizer) last week. He only had a sore arm. I had that - no big deal - plus had a flushed face directly after getting the second shot, for maybe 7 minutes. We are older than your average bear, and old people apparently have fewer side effects anyway.

I don't know if I was more tired than usual, because I helped myself to a nice pre-emptive nap after each shot. Maybe there were a few times I didn't feel so good during the first week, but that's true anytime, so maybe not connected.

As for GAINZZZ, yes I did gain weight over the past year! I was quite dispirited missing my tap class (which started back up in August - here in Georgia), then having to decline again to be in the recital this May.

Also just finished The Army at Dawn by Rick Atkinson. Very good, so I just ordered the other two in the trilogy. Right now I'm reading Lion Rampant by Robert Woollcombe and find it very interesting. He's Scots so he drops some terms I'm really not familiar with, but his descriptions of the fighting in Normandy are very vivid and enjoyable. My WWII collection continues to grow.

And the yearly boosters for whatever variant. You will still be forced to wear masks and socially distance and whatever else the state says because you can't vaccinate against a rapidly mutating virus.... like you can't vaccinate against the flu.
I'll stick to nutrition and boosting my natural immune system for a cold virus. Let me know when the date rate is over 10% or more and not less than .03%.

I am pretty sure that the FBI/DOJ are required by their own rules, that when asked, they must either confirm or deny that someone is currently under investigation....otherwise they risk being charged with "cloud of suspicion" related issues if the person wasn't under investigation but it was strongly suggested by vague statements that he was and that simply was not the case.

I am pretty sure the DOJ/FBI cannot hide or seek cover under some vague "we can't talk about that" only because a citizen's civil rights would be involved and possibly violated by the US Government in suggesting vaguely that wrong doing is being investigated when that is not case.

Posted by: sock_rat_eez at April 02, 2021 05:10 PM (K65Kq

But it is not old school! An old school vaccine is a dead or weakened version of the actual virus. J&J uses a live but harmless virus to get your cells to make the spike protein to which you are to become immune. Pfe and Moderna use mRNA to get your cells to produce the spike proteins. So the mechanism is a little different, but either way your cells make the spike protein.

FWIW, I got the Pfe.

414 I had a sore arm for a day after the first shot. After the second, a less sore arm but drowsy the following day. Also, I follow a Keto diet (mostly). I find that it works relatively well for about 20% of your body weight and then your body appears to adjust and it becomes very difficult to continue losing weight. You will have to start a calorie restricted diet to lose any more. I've verified this with several others on a Keto diet. They all had a similar experience. My motivation is seeing a donut since I haven't had one in 18 months. Just 15 more pounds!

415 I had the second Pfizer dose on Tuesday, slept all day Wednesday (didn't feel like doing anything else and had a slight fever) and was fine on Thursday.

417 ace...i got my second pfizer shot yesterday....the first shot went without a hitch...the second went well for around 12 hours and then the bottom fell out...fever,incredible aches and malaise...i felt weak as a kitten for about8 hours(really felt bad..if you threw in difficulty breathing i can imagine that it`s pretty frightening)....then i took two tylenol,some o.j.(with added vitamin c) and some vitamin d....ate a little and it started to get better...i was a bit shocked...i`ve never had much of a reaction to any vaccine or shot....this was much different....i was impressed(in a bad way)...

419 80 I am a generous person.

I will let everyone else get the vax first, this way I won't need to get it.

Either they will all be dead or there will be no need.

Win-win.

Exactly.

420 Two Pfizer shots, no reaction except for usual sore deltoid for half a day.

In 2018, my elderly Dad got a bad infection and lost 20 pounds. He was skin and bones. I realized I was underweight myself, with little cushion if I ever needed it. So I switched from cycling and eating carbs to Starting Strength and eating beef. Went from 165 then to 190 now. Still wearing most of the same pants. Went from M to L polo shirts though.

421 I have not and will not get vaccinated against COVID, And I feel just fine.

422 I was diagnosed with Covid on 2/15. I had two days where I was very sick and it took about 2 to 3 weeks to return to feeling normal. During that time I was sleeping 2-4 hours more a night than I normally slept. I got Covid from my Dad, who I visited in Naples, FL the week before my diagnosis. He ended up dying from it on 2/26. He was overweight and had COPD and emphysema, so Covid was not a good hand for him to be dealt. My Mom also tested positive for Covid and had virtually no symptoms. She thought her sinuses were messed up due to allergies, but was otherwise fine. (None of us knew my parents were Covid + when I went to visit).

I got first dose of Pfizer about 10 days ago. I had a Covid flashback for about 2.5 days following the stab, but it wasn't nearly as intense as when I was sick with Covid.

My only point, the symptomatic expression of Covid seems to vary quite a bit.

423 Imagine getting an experimental serum injected into your arm and calling it "a vaccine"

424 All of us are in a testing protocol for the new Wuhan Death Cooties drugs. The new drug prevents a disease almost as serious as a paper cut (unless you are immune-compromised, obese or elderly). Like most testing protocols, some of us get the drug and some get the placebo. I'm in the placebo group. Good luck to the rest of you.
