Today I feel as though I am strong enough to start working out once again. There is nothing worse than belly problems taking you out. I rested for more than 2 days and feel strong once again, but during this healing process I did increase my carbohydrate intake to provide the needed energy for my immune system to do it’s thing. I did stick to my meal plan but ate things like healthy breads and potato’s between meals. It seems that it has done the trick, but it has also left me with some numbers that are not so desirable.
I am not one to complain about body weight because I know that in the muscle building world that our body weight increases as we build muscle, but I do know that I have put on some undesirable body fat do the the fact that my pants are fitting a little tighter. I am back up to almost 174 lbs and I remember how hard I worked and how long it took to get from 174 down to under 170. So it is time to get back to the strict diet and hard work.
With that said as of today I am breaking back into my summer workout routine. This means that I will be alternating cardio and abs one day and bowflex strength exercises the next. On bowflex days I will bring my sets back up to 2 for each exercise. This routine will both step up the fat burning and muscle strength while giving me the day off from each to heal. It also gives me the added advantage of time in the morning to get other things done like tending to the garden before I go to work.
