Ive also wanted to start a side project so i have a small business operating in the uplift so i grok fully what…

Up what amounts to a tiny bit after breaking a 2 day fast last night with a giant pile of veggies and some steak.

This trendline basically says everything I want to say today.

Fasting will re-gain its place as my main brute force tool. Beaches are open so I’m back swimming (on the weekdays, easy to social distance, and wearing my mask until right before gettin in the water)

Way ahead of schedule to get under 220 before day 40. That’s fun.

He calls for men to speak up when other men show any kind of abusive speech or behavior. Amen. Silence is complicity.
