Since I've been laid off and staying around the house more I started gaining weight and have developed soft clean hands already. Started questioning my own mortality and I'm having second thoughts about working on my Savoy in case something happens and it cant be driven.
So I'm not doing the re-wire and roll cage install until I know it's safe.
Anyone else putting extra pounds yet ?

People are eating because they are bored, not because they are hungry. Also, not enough people getting exercise. I'm not getting as much exercise as I would be if the gyms were open, but some of the people I train with have put up great at-home exercise routines, including some that are all body weight. I'm also doing shadow boxing and my regular cardio videos.

Lockdown? My schedule hasn't changed. If anything I'm getting busier with the warm weather.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

Considering the grocery stores are out of just about everything I would say I am not gaining weight.

Just the opposite. I have lost 8 lbs. in the last 3 weeks. Anxiety caused by the pandemic has curbed my appetite. Plus, I am pacing my intake with the amount of groceries I have on hand. Why? Because my trip to the grocery store (every 2 weeks) makes me nervous....even though I am at the door when the Piggly Wiggly opens at 6:00 am. Another factor: I am no longer spending the weekends at the local breweries...haven't had a beer in 3 weeks.

The lock down hasn't changed my life much since I was pretty much at home all the time already. laugh2

I've actually lost a few pounds (5) but only because spring is now here and I can get outside and do some stuff around the house and garage.


Kayse can't keep up at all now. lol

I've actually lost a few pounds since this started. Stopped drinking coffee also. Not sure why on either count. But my hands have never been cleaner...

You know I looked at my bike today when I took the trash out. Maybe Ill take it out for a ride tomorrow. I haven't actually weighed myself I just feel like I'm getting heavy. My beer and coffee intake is about a third of normal but I've been using my Treager a lot lately cleaning out the freezer .

I read somewhere that you should try on some pants every so often because the pajamas you've been wearing give no indication of the weight that you may have gained.

I've lost weight, too. No eating out. Sleeping 'til noon and only eating a small lunch and then dinner.... or sometimes just dinner.

Ideal small batch moonshine still
is to buy one of the above,
take apart the coil in the top unit
and seal the tiny hole that allows “volatile vapors” to escape when tap water is distilled.

But my advice is to stop drinking entirely.
This coming from someone who drank more Bourbon from age 18 to 36 than most drink in a lifetime.

This really is a great time for people to work on fitness. If you are home, you likely have more free time. Get off of the couch and move. There are countless free workouts online. You don't need any equipment, though if you have some, use it. I did a 60 minute boxing workout last night...15 minutes of cardio, 8 three minute rounds of shadow boxing, 15 minutes of core-focused work at the end, and I was gassed. I usually do that workout at the boxing gym, using the heavy bag. Even without the bag, it was challenging. You guys can do it, and you won't regret it.

I can't do the cardio gig due to the blood pressure problems it would create. I still walk 3-5 miles every day. Now I can swing my metal detector a bit when it is'nt raining or cold out. I would like to lose about 15 pounds but don't see it happening. shruggy

Even if you can't do the cardio, walk every day, change your diet, and you can lose 15.

I'm still workin but I've lost a few pounds. Been bringing a lunch and not eating a lot of junk food or Pepsi. Dinner on the table when I get home every day cause the wife is home for now due to the work stoppage..

Healthy home cookin I guess has its advantages.
