At long last
I had a relatively idle day yesterday, and knowing it would be so from the start, I did what I often do on such a Saturday, Sunday morning — or both — laying in bed around 8ish, room well awash in sun despite curtains — just enjoying trying to sleep more, though not pushing the issue…rather being content when it actually does happen to suddenly realize it’s 10am, and far from feeling guilty, I rejoice.
Something just feels right with my life.
But in this case something wasn’t right and I contemplated, then decided. I have low body temperature. If I ever bother to measure it seems perfectly happy in the upper 97s, most of the time. But I need and want to burn brighter, even if for shorter. Because I just fucking know. There are no long term considerations. 98.6, sucker, or you’re just not like everybody else and you know what that means. How can you then trust an authoritarian-contrarian guru? How can a guru operate without some sembalnce of a path or formula for everyone to follow? And I’m especially keen to learn more about aspects of this sort of deal. I’ve got lots of readers and its like herding cats, sometimes. Every joker out there seems to think they know what’s best for them. They even have the audacity to think they’re special and don’t need a body temperature pegged at 98.6 degrees fahrenheit, read from a device stuck in their mouth or under their arm. I mean, there are health authorities on YouTube who wear their baseball caps backwards!!! How much more credible can you get?
So I spent yesterday working on raising my body temperature. And I got it all the way up to 100.3, at the highest point I actually measured (it’s a secret how I did it, but I’ll soon have a "Free Ebook"). For some odd reason, I felt quite bad, which I of course attributed to getting better. I was sure that increased body temperature means increased metabolism, et cetera, et cetera. And funny thing, the less of nothing I ate, the more my temp went up — for a while — and because I was on a "more is better" mission, I just kept on not eating as the temp increased, and then I ended up not eating since about noon — I didn’t feel like it anyway — and it’s 24 hours later at this point. I’m a bit perplexed, because I thought I could only even have a sufficient body temperature if I "eat the food." On the other hand, I’m just a newbie at all this cutting edge stuff. Word on the street is, I can even do better if I start downing spoonfulls of refined sugar per day. That could be a problem though. I still have to work out my inner, natural resistance to eating lots of sweets since I don’t naturally crave them, or rather, crave them over another piece of meat if its available. But if that’s what it gonna take to get that body temperature up and have a high metabolism so I can eat high to metabolize high, even when sitting on my ass or am deep in sleep for my normal 8 hours, well, that’s what it’s gonna take.
Spent the night in alternating modes of freezing and sweating. No doubt, my body was adjusting to increasing its Schwarzstonebein metabolism. Or, maybe I’m just "detoxing." Or, maybe I’m just "not doing it right"…
…Unfortunately, it all didn’t last. Woke up this morning after a pretty good three hours without alternating cold sweats and I was back to a very disappointing 97.8 degrees.
I’m such a failure.
[Some of you, especially new readers & visitors aren’t going to really get the foregoing. If you hang around comments I’m sure things will become obvious soon enough. There’s lots of tongue-in-cheek, inside joking for the benefit of longtime readers. Sorry for the diversion and back to regularly scheduled programming soon enough.]
