Guitar plays like a dream . Obsession is taking hold.
Played 2hrs last night, 1.5 this morning.
Means I'll have to move my leg day to Fri and do my copywriting study tomorrow as well.
Need to buy some tighter belts, diet going well. Been looking at a guy called Bryan Johnson who's a multimillionaire biohacker - found some good veg recipes to batch cook - hopefully this will solve my poor veg intake

Day started decent, got my guitar playing done - played pretty poorly so I'll give my hands a break. Definitely hit the point of diminishing returns with the amount I've been practicing the last couple days.

Tried some melanotan and felt nauseous for several hours and had a headache which has killed of the rest of the day.
Gonna half the dose tomorrow.

Had this unsatisfied feeling today along with persistent boners. My theory is the dopamine from the extra sun I'm getting is interacting with the test.
Felt annoyed with fwb too as she's away for the weekend so I can't blow off any steam.

Had a sauna and cold shower. Will chill and have an early night.

I now have a three-day weekend so will use it productively.

Interesting. I've been noticing a similar shift myself with the other medication I'm taking. I wonder if there's any science behind it for biohacking purposes.

I really like his approach (for the yet uninformed: https://blueprint.bryanjohnson.co/). Been following him for a while.

The one thing I think is lacking is justification for each of his individual choices. I understand he does the research himself with a team of scientists, but it would be nice for him to publicly expose it.

Eating more vegetables obviously can't hurt.

I've added a couple things from his protocol after doing a lot of my own research: copper peptides for skin and cocoa powder for chronic disease prevention.

I'll check those out, I've been trying to get his full skin and hair routine.
Especially interested in the laser therapy he uses to reverse/mitigate sun damage.

Andrew hubermans got a lot of good information about dopamine and testosterone:
https://m.youtube.com/shorts/1CG_XE2R4AA


I can't say how but spending time in nature, exercising, limiting screen time, going into a surplus and sleeping well has a definite acute effect on libido for me, while the test seems to improve my baseline lidibo and energy.

Quitting porn and spending time with fwb also let me experience the development in real-time of a Pavlovian response in terms of arousal.
It makes sense that as your brain learns what is happening during foreplay ect it starts to anticipate more and more pleasurable things are going to happen - the anticipation releases reward chemicals and heightens arousal even further in a positive feedback loop.

No-one really seems to talk about this when it comes to psychological ED issues and I think it explains how I managed to fix my situation.

First:
I boosted my drive through hormone replacement as looking back I barely had any.
Then:
I engrained good habits by ditching porn and learning to relax and enjoy myself irl.
There was also a scary point for me where I had no nerves but no real feeling of arousal either but the first couple times I was able to finish it's really as if my brain finally realised what was going on.

Looking back it's really interesting.

Good shit man. This gives me a lot to look into when I start next week.

Hit workout and guitar playing.
The melanotan is slowly working but the nausea is really slowing me down when it comes to getting things done, will see it through.
Got complimented that I look well because of the slight tan which is the goal.

The weather's been amazing and it's made me lazy - I missed my copywriting study so will make this up asap.

Hit everything today and was pretty productive.
Back on the early shift next week but have some good short-term goals to hit so will update tm.

2 weeks until my holiday.
My main goal until then is to finish my copywriting course.
Subgoal keep expanding social circle and do my meetup approaches.

This week:
Copywriting study 2hrs daily minimum.
Back to 4-day upper lower - add 4 cardio sessions in.
Buy 2 books on copywriting to read
Restock: peptides, finasteride,
Meetup ×2 Friday, Saturday
Guitar will be on maintenance 4 hrs/week while I finish the course.

Things to add:
Copper peptides.
I've also started taking a generic multivitamin.

Finish melanotan 'cycle' 6 days left I'm on day 4 which is when the supplier says you will start noticing the effects. So far I've took on some colour and look healthier for it. I want to try and get a bronze look so may get more and keep using it until I go on holiday.
I also want the increased melanin to protect from sun damage long-term.

Sleep:
I'm on the early shift so I want to try some morning sungazing, I might sleep in a tent in the garden and see how I feel waking up with the sun.
It will also mean I don't get woken up my people moving around the house. Sounds very extreme but it might be quite effective. I'll feel like a nam' veteran sleeping outside lol

Worked, workout, studied, saw fwb. Very productive but a late night so now I'm shattered.

Will have a nap after work and keep the momentum going.
