The symptoms of having a tapeworm are fever, chills and overall crappy feeling.


#323

Just to recap the week. Monday Legs, Tuesday Chest and Shoulders. Wednesday and Thursday I felt like shit and carried a bug. Woke up this morning after a full night’s rest and no fever. Made some quick gains this morning with a small Bi/Tri/Calf workout and actually did some cardio too lol.

Lunch is 10oz shredded chicken, 6 pieces of bacon, 4oz of spinach wrapped up in a tomato basil tortilla wrap. All courtesy of the wife. Gotta love when the wife is on board with your nutrition goals.

Started this week off great. Chest/Bi’s/Tri’s on Monday and Back/Shoulders yesterday. I have a potential job opportunity this year that is going to require me to shift gears with my fitness plans. Instead of trying to get big, I need to focus on strength, endurance and staying relatively lean to properly keep up during the day. It’s not cross fit shit but theres a lot of aerobic activity combined with with strength for the job.

Good work bro.


#337

Man I’ve been so tired lately. Insomnia is a bitch sometimes and it only gets worse the more tired I get.


#338

Guessing you’ve tried melatonin and all of that stuff?


#339

I don’t normally recommend medications but ambien does work also you can try clonidine .01mg
These are both medications meant to relax you and neither are addictive unless you abuse them or of course I wouldn’t recommend them.


#340

I swore off drugs from doctors years ago bro. The Marine Corps and the VA had me on so much shit at one point that I’m surprised I still know who I am lol. I sometimes use melatonin but it takes time to build in your system so I usually forego it. This comes and goes through different times of the year for me.
