I've put on a few pounds in the last few years. Today I started working out in the morning. I was going to change my lunch routine today, but a couple of people were going out for Vietnamese food and I couldn't resist. (Bun cha Ha Noi, a bun thit nuong, and a cafe sua da. Mmmmm!)

So about three hours ago I took a Stacker 3 -- 25 mg. of ephedrine (or pseudo-ephedrine or something like that). I'm still buzzing from it. The felt effects are only supposed to last about 90 minutes, I think. It's been a long, long time since I've used recreational drugs, but IIRC, it feels like coke. I wonder if instead of eating the pill, I can snort it? (Just kidding.)

Dang, if I take one before my morning workout I might over-do it and injure myself! I need to be careful.

Buzzzzzzzzzzzzz...............

I thought it was "Ashes to ashes, funk to funky..."

Yeah, the label had lots of warnings and I read them. I'm actually very healthy. I especially paid attention to the warning that said the max. "safe" dose is 100 mg in a 24-hour period, and the one that said not to take more than three pills (75 mg) in a 24 hour period.

The buzz I'm getting is about the same as if I drank 42 ounces of freshly brewed espresso. (I normally don't drink more than 28 ounces in one sitting, and that's just on weekends. Weekdays is 14 ounces.)

Nothing personal you understand..

But you actually measure how much coffee you drink?

Well, my cup holds 14 ounces. My stovetop espresso pot fills it.
