The first day!
I started early, climbed into the hyperbaric chamber at 7 am, set my alarm and then finished my night’s sleep. I think I will try for a bit earlier and then head back up to wake up in bed. I will also work on having entertainment handy. My phone should have all of that, just need to get the earphone so I can hear it over the compressor.
Since I have decided to use the nose mask for greater oxygen purity, it is not perfectly comfortable. The pad on the floor of the chamber is good, but I may need a bit more. I take the pillows from my bed. It’s not bad.
I opened all of my supplements bottles, took three NMN for a total of 900mg, two Resveratrol for a total of 1000mg, two of my homemade parsley pills for apigenin, and two One-A-Day gummies for Men.
For my 30 minute stretch, I went outside to the back (interrupted only by a couple of Latino gentlemen asking if it was OK to hunt iguanas along the waterway. Hell, it’s OK by me…). I don’t really have a set program yet, but I went through the series of Tae Kwon Do stretches from my early days (I was a black belt back in 19%&%^). I think when it is an option I will do my stretches outside. I notice my skin is currently the pale translucent color of the night-dwelling vampire set, so perhaps it will do me some good.
One shortcoming for the day. I was planning to start my detox from the evil Dr. Pepper, to relax and endure the withdrawal headaches. But yesterday I found out I had to completely re-write a project that I have been working on and to have it ready on Monday morning. So I ended up drinking 3 cans, but it was all within my calorie budget of 2400. I’ll take it.
I have my baseline video (which I won’t show unless I am very successful) and my baseline weight. I will be reporting the difference in my weight, while not telling you my embarrassing baseline.
Check it out below, this is a video of me getting into the hyperbaric chamber. It’s still kind of like a pig getting caught in a fence (although I don’t squeal that much). This is a 32 inch chamber, I’m not sure I could get into the 27 inch version.
