I am back for the first day of the second week of the Beast Mode workout. Today I will be working the chest the same as I did last Monday. I would love to say that I can raise the weight but know that I am maxed out as far as the heaviest weight the bowflex carries.
Obviously I am not happy with my morning blood sugar reading, but I also know that it was self induced with white bread, cake and beer yesterday. Yea, I had one of those days. But today is a brand new day and I am back on track once again. I will concentrate a little more on my diet this week and try to stay on course with keeping my carbs under 100 grams per day and avoiding sugar. I know that it is ridiculous to say but I feel as though I am losing my motivation to eat just the right things. Eating the wrong things has lead to my waist size going from a 32″ to a 33″. I have to find that same ambition that I did before and get back to where I was. My blood sugar readings have also been much higher than they were before I packed on some body fat and this itself should be enough motivation to get me excited enough to eat right.
I can get up early in the morning and work out like a beast, but if I don’t get the diet back on track my progress will falter and my problems with Type II Diabetes will continue. Last week I drew a line in the sand with keeping up with a good workout routine and today I am drawing that same line once again for eating correctly. I will start to strive for eating mostly vegetables, a little bit of meat and a few healthy carbohydrates. I will stop these stupid games I keep playing with beer and bread know that each one is just reversing all of the strides I make each day with workouts.
Not too long ago I discovered the Paleo Diet and was excited about it and started practicing it each day. I listened to podcasts about it and read books and stayed motivated and watched my body fat slowly melt away. This is the excitement I must get back and I will start today by listening to Paleo Magazine Radio.
