Took this week off to take a well-needed break and to work on my academic paper. Finally saw my parents who I haven’t seen since early February. BBQ’ed with my gf’s family which was almost as if nothing had happened. Banal in a way that I quite longed for. We didn’t really hold onto the distancing; we figured after months of not seeing anyone, sitting outside and them being careful too, risks are pretty low.

I’m still running and after getting new Nikes have been going very fast for my doing. Did a 40 minute 6k today without really going for that, so I’m very pleased. I did however drop under 150lbs for the first time today. So if y’all have lactose-free ways of getting phat lemme know.

Squats and oats did the trick for me. You'll have a hard time putting on mass by running 5ks, as opposed to doing resistance training.

It's also easier to consume calories in liquid form, like protein shakes. Whey isolate is nearly lactose-free, and non-dairy powders would be completely lactose-free.

By this same dint, oat milk is super high calorie and I think it tastes alright.

Wtf? It's been a while since we've met, but I seem to remember you being like 6'2" ish, no?

He's infuriating to eat with. Fortunately god has punished him for his metabolism by making him Dutch and lactose intolerant.

I believe when we met up in Amsterdam I was like, "What's Dutch food?" To which you replied, "Tosti." "Cool, what's that?" "Grilled cheese." "Cool, I'll have that."

And french fries with mayo.

kleinbl00  ·  36 days ago  ·  link  ·  

...which, if you call it "frites" with "aioli" isn't even Dutch.

I lost all respect for food in the UK as soon as I was presented with a Welsh Rarebit.

"This is cheez whiz on toast."

"...yeah, mostly"

"See I was willing to consider a Scotch egg to be a one-off but you guys really do just eat fried garbage and pretend you're better than everyone, don't you?"

"Well, not to each other just to you lot."

What I love about the Great British Baking Show is it's largely colonized minorities making French, Austrian, Italian and German delicacies in a tent in Yorkshire somewhere.

I swear the best food I ever had in the UK was in an American style steakhouse! The worst, on the other hand, was black pudding served for brunch at the Old Course.

I haven't been 150 since high school and I'm a mere 5'8" when I'm stretching.

6'4". I'm at 8% fat mass, and feel really fit, but I'm light as a feather. Still no visible abs tho.

b_b  ·  36 days ago  ·  link  ·  

No visible abs because even though you're at 8% fat mass you're at like 3% muscle mass.

veen  ·  36 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Light as a feather, pushed over like a feather.

On second thought don't fight be kleinbl00 - I'll lose.

Nut butters, coconut oil, and I guess start eating dessert every day?
