OK folks, here we go again with another problem, another re-evaluation and another opportunity to make changes. My blood sugar is up and body weight is up which is yet another indication to me that I am doing something wrong. It’s all about “Too Much”. Too much in one workout each day, and too much food at the end of the day. Doing cardio and weight lifting all in the same day is not working out for me even though I have reduced the weight lifting workout. I have to go back to the “every other day plan”. As I am working towards burning fat I am kicking up my cardio to higher levels and with adding heavy lifting into the mix it is obvious that I am not allowing my body the time to heal properly.
I am returning to a plan where I can really concentrate cardio on cardio days and weight lifting on weight lifting days. I will start eating oatmeal each day 30 minutes after my workout along with cottage cheese to supply my body with both the energy and muscle food it needs for quick healing. Mid morning I will eat a yogurt and at lunch time I will always include a large salad. Dinner will be light, but filled with nutrition.
If I feel that I need a day off I will take one and if I feel that I need a reduced workout I will also do it. I cannot totally beat the shit out of myself everyday and expect positive results. I am only human.
