I’d mentioned thermogenics in yesterday’s exercise post, but forgot to elaborate. Back in my early 30s when I was a gym rat, before the ashtanga cult sucked me in, I got a little help shedding a layer of body fat with the combination of spinning & “stackers”. I’d sometimes read mens’ fitness magazines in those days, looking for ways to tweak my system & reading product reviews. You could get ephedra in workout supplements then. It was awesome. It really works! I hadda be careful though. Just a third of the recommended daily dose made me hopped up and aggressive.
(Worked out cause I got my first hosiery design job & had to be a ball buster to not get milked like some abused dairy cow. I never worked unpaid overtime while on salary, even as my pay scale rose. Most do.)
I was smart enough not to take six capsules a day, but there were enough people having heart attacks on treadmills to ruin it for the rest of us.
I’d like another assist & ordered the below. It’s both vegan (put your money where your mouth is) and caffeine free.
I took 1 before yesterday’s workout and 1 after, but I did get a stomach ache that lasted into the evening. I was also pretty restless trying to sleep. I’ll have to experiment with it a little & see if I can get it to work better. Maybe I just need to get used to it.
And in other news, I’ve decided to view the next couple days as fodder for writing and decision making.
