After 2 strong days on the Bowflex my upper body is sore, and with working on the raised bed garden project yesterday I am really exhausted. I think I will take advantage of a healing day and avoid the exercise and allow my body to recover. The healing process is just as important as the ripping and tearing process in body building. I was scheduled for shoulder exercises today, but because they are so closely related muscle group wise as the muscles needed repair, it certainly would not be in my best interest to work them again. I may even take tomorrow off and simple do some cardio. For today I will feed those muscles with protein.
I noticed this morning that my blood sugar has dropped down into the eighties. This makes me happy as I know that my efforts are paying off.
