Sunday lifting thread – diet and fasting.

It’s been a while since I posted a Sunday lifting thread, mostly due to the present circumstances. I have been lifting throughout this period but it has been a bit up and down, like my moods. But it’s critical to keep working at the iron no matter what your circumstances. The iron gives you strength, not just physically but mentally as well.

In addition to the iron I am doing my best to make sure that I eat properly. This means that Sunday afternoon is my big cooking day of the week. Typically a roast chicken for lunch which I will then turn the leftovers into stock and then use that to make a soup and a stew which go into the fridge and serve my hunger needs during the week when I am a little tired or lacking motivation to cook properly.

A good diet high in protein and fat and low in carbs is really important for you in a general health sense, but if you’re lifting serious weights 3 or more times a week then you also need a big replenishment so as to not suffer muscle atrophy.

Podcast #96 – The 28 traits of the modern man episode.

I have moved the weekly podcast release to Saturday, (this was uploaded to Soundcloud yesterday), as Wednesday is just too difficult to record and I like to put it up immediately before I have a chance to rethink things.

This week’s episode is about clearing up the misconceptions regarding my 28 Traits of the modern man series. I go into a little more background on each of them, in particular those in which the meaning is inferred rather than being obvious.

The recession Australia deserves to have.

Australia’s housing bubble is on the verge of going pop. The housing bubble is based on a few factors, namely an immigration Ponzi scheme, the market distortion created by the Reserve Bank manipulating interest rates, and the demise of Australia’s manufacturing economy which has resulted in a scramble for wealth generation via asset inflation.

Australia has staved off an official recession for almost 30 years by sleight of hand manipulation of the economy and official measuring indicators such as GDP. But with so many jobs now based on the housing and construction sector, a bursting of the bubble would see such an impact on the economy that it is hard to determine how this would not result in a recession.

This chart that was published last week in The Australian is illustrative of just how big the problem is and for how long the market reckoning has been put off.

Friday hawt chicks & links – Angrywhitemenistan edition.

Greetings, my robots. The above cartoon, (H/T Roissy), was meant by the cartoonist as a means of poking fun at us nationalist white men. Unfortunately, the jokes on him as this fantasy looks pretty darn good to me. No feminazis, thug culture, Muslims, foreigners of any type, mainstream media, homos, or elites. Why, it sounds like what they meant to keep when they drew up that little old constitution document. I particularly like the heavy industry in the background; it seems that this imaginary country actually makes stuff, hopefully while giving a poo-poo to the entirely make believe service economy which everyone was convinced would be the next best thing.

No more making stuff! Just push paper around a desk! Living the dream!

On with it.

The real difference between the right and the left.

When I am asked by younger guys for suggestions to help them resolve problems that they are experiencing, one of the most common issues that inevitably comes up is the horribly self-defeating practice of telling lies, both to yourself and to others. In fact, I would posit that lies told to yourself are far more dangerous to you.

I used to be a liar and it was because of chronic insecurity and a deep need to be accepted and acknowledged. I was more of a chronic exaggerator than an all out liar, but the lies were mixed in there among the exaggerations.

I recorded a podcast on this topic a while back which is one of my most listened episodes.
