Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve done resistance exercises that this morning I feel like I am starting all over again. I am pushing through a good chest workout at a slow pace and my reps are a lot lower than the last time I worked my chest. I could push a little harder, but I feel like I should be getting these rested muscles acclimated to working hard again. The next time I do chest I may be able to get back to where I was before, or it may take an additional workout. While doing a peleo diet my body is adjusting from burning carbs for energy to burning fat. I am keto adjusting and should soon see some dramatic changes in how I feel.
My weight continues to drop while living Paleo and again I am watching the damn scale. With a good workout today it is possible that my weight may go up tomorrow while retaining water for muscle growth. What does make me happy is that my blood sugar has gone down and I am hoping to see a range once again of between 80 and 90.
I know that I have to get back into walking on the treadmill more frequently. I want to keep a moderate pace for a longer time period. I will be shooting for 1 hour at a setting of 4.0 MPH.
