11-19-14 – Wednesday – Inflammation

So yesterday I noticed inflammation in my body. I don’t know if it was just a great retention of water or a reaction to food. After lunch yesterday the veins in my arms appeared more visible than normal. Being that I spent the last 4 days working on the treadmill with a walking routine I knew this was not from heavy lifting. It could just be a sign that I need a day off, or it could be my body’s response to eating pork for lunch. Because of the sodium in pork or ham I have always noticed an increased thirst for water. I believe that is what is going on. I also noticed that despite all of the calorie burning I have been doing each day, this morning my weight was a bit higher than the day before.

I am also recognizing that I should take a day off after 3 straight days of exercise. It doesn’t matter if it is cardio or strength training, I believe it is a matter of my body calling for a break. I don’t know this for a fact, but I highly suspect that most heart attacks take place during these times of inflammation. I also suspect that it is this inflammation that brings about a great many other medical problems if gone unchecked.
