So today is a brand new day for me in the workout world as I draw a line in the sand and separate the old with the new. This new mission is all about striving to get down to 12% body fat and it won’t be easy, but with the changes I put in place like cardio every other day should help me get there. There is no time limits on this new mission as I know how my body works. It will burn fat when it feels comfortable burning fat which means that my diet will include plenty of protein and vitamin rich meals. When the body feels like it is going into starvation mode in naturally retains body fat as insurance of longer survival, so eating right is very important. By limiting carbohydrates you naturally force the body into burning fat for energy, but this has to be done slowly while drinking plenty of water.
I can already see how hard it’s going to be to keep the treadmill routine at just 30 minutes, but I will have a built in buffer where after 30 minutes I will slowly reduce the speed of the machine but limit this to just 10 minutes max. Anything over this is just a waste and an introduction to burning hard earned muscle.
My expectations are to see a dramatic drop in my morning glucose readings along with an eventual reduction in waist size. These should be the indicators to me after about 30 days that I am on the right path.
My early morning glucose reading is coming down and I hope to see it drop below 100 in about 3 days. My body weight is up which is an indicator that I am not drinking enough water. When the body believes that it is dehydrating it naturally reserves water to ensure it’s own survival. So hey Billy – Drink Water. I have to constantly remind myself of this. It is one of the keys of success in fitness and overall health.
