(Although my friend told me he's been working with bands which is feasible) I've been doing a crap-ton a runs since this started, but that doesn't do much more men in the fat loss department. My diet negates all that.

I'm really gonna try to eat healthier from here on out, but I really miss the gym. Going there four times a week to zero has been a big change for my body. Hopefully they open up soon.

I hear a lot of people saying they can’t work out at home. I wonder how hard they look because there are a lot of exercises out there that use body weight and no or minimal equipment

I had P90X discs a long time ago and it has some killer workouts

Even a quick google of working out at home gives some exercises that I wouldn’t think of, off the top of my head. Not saying this is a perfect one, but just looking at it, I can’t imagine who wouldn’t feel the burn

Ironically, due to quarantine I've worked out more in the last two months than I have in the last two years...and I worked in a gym!

I imagine this time is especially hard for extroverts. As an introvert, I can adapt to a lack of social contact fairly easily, but even I long to see my friends soon.

It's been difficult these last few months, having lost a brother quite suddenly and the family in Calgary unable to grieve together.

I was unusually troubled by the awful scenes playing out in Minneapolis these nights and it finally hit me as to why. Big dramatic international events in the past (i.e. 911 or the collapse of the Berlin Wall) would be watched together and discussed as a family. We have distant relatives in Minnesota (as we did in New York and Germany before). So it sort of made it personal.

Although technically being an introvert doesn’t actually mean you don’t like like social contact.

I get what you’re saying though.

Started a new job today. Felt so good just to be there. Of course with New Zealand having recently eliminated all active covid cases the mood is overwhelmingly positive here. Moved out of the toxic house 2 weeks ago and am close to finding a new one but have been staying with good and supportive friends in the meantime.

And I'm 88 days sober! Now that we're allowed to socialise and go to bars it's a bit of a challenge to be around so many people and not drink, but I am managing. Thankfully the people I'm closest with are supportive and understanding.

I'm feeling very good right now, but I'm so thankful this thread was here in the times where I was not. Weve all been through some tough times lately and it has been really good for me to share my troubles here as well as seeing you guys sharing yours, so thanks everyone. Hope you all are doing ok.

I don't know anymore, my mental state of mind Yo-Yo's. The job search is really tough right now, I'm getting interviews here and there, I've got a second interview with a company on Monday. I'm supposed to hear something back from another interview early next week, but my gut is that I'm not going to get it.


I've gone through and completely changed up and simplified my resume and changed the look and feel, but I think that I'm dealing with a combination of ageism and that so many people are out of work that employers are finding tighter fits.



I know I'm ok on the money side for a few more months. But right now, I'm starting to feel lost and pessimistic.
