What sense does it make to eat totally healthy all day, but then indulge in potato chips and beer at the end of that day? It doesn’t make any sense, and any good that eating healthy is totally reversed with the high carbs. Free range eggs, grass fed beef, lots of green vegetables and plenty of water alone would have made the perfect diet, but as soon as I added those carbs at the end of the day I just blew it.
I am not working yet, the weather has been cold and rainy, I am bored and I think I may be getting depressed. I suppose for this reason it may have been a better idea to have a gym membership rather than building a gym in my home. The gym serves as not only a place to get a workout in, but also a place to communicate with like minded people. A community if you will. While I was working it didn’t make too much sense to join a gym as I didn’t have the time to go there, but being out of work for a while sure gives me reason to join. I will keep this in mind for the day that I finally do retire altogether.
Anyway, today is brand new day and yet another day to try and do the right thing. Although my back is feeling much better I think it would be wise to stay away from working out for one more day. Once inflammation subsides and the pain goes away it doesn’t mean that the injury is completely healed, it just means that the body has been working hard to repair the muscle that was distressed. Once the pain is gone it is always suggested to wait at least another 48 hours to start working it again. While I am not working out I have to stay mindful to avoid those excessive carbohydrates as their is no muscle demand to rid the body of the newly acquired glucose in the blood stream.
The weather is calling for rain again all day with temperatures in just the high 40’s today. It’s going to be another tough one, but I will make it through.
