So after a morning of light weight lifting yesterday I am noticing that both my blood sugar and body weight has increased. This I am learning seems to be a normal state of affairs and I will wait once again until my numbers start going down. So I am keying in on the fact that any type of resistance exercise can sent my numbers up, but overall it is healthy and I simply have to limit my exposure to it to maybe to just once a week. Although I only lifted two thirds of what I normally lift it was still enough to cause inflammation and set my body in a different state. This all leaves me with the question if I were to simply walk each day and keep resistance at a minimum will it be enough to keep my bone health thriving as resistance exercise is the key to good bone health? And yes, the experiment continues…
I am starting to figure out that while muscle mass can certainly be attractive it seems to me to be not a natural state of being at age 54. While moderate weight bearing exercise is healthy, being in a state of inflammation can be dangerous and actually cause more problems that make things better. While I was avoiding resistance exercises for almost 2 weeks I watch my blood sugar decrease and go back to a normal state, but as soon as I reintroduces resistance exercise I so those numbers increase. So what is the natural state of man? I believe that it would include a great deal of walking and occasionally a little bit of hard work followed by plenty of rest. With a balanced diet and practicing intermittent fasting a few days a week I believe that it may be the key to being all that I can be, not by heavy weight lifting. We shall see.
Today will mark day#4 of trying to get my PC reloaded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I am still locked up in trying to install all of the updates for Windows 8 to get it up to 8.1 so I can finally download Windows 10. It’s like the never ending problem. I started out with 191 updates and I am now down to just 44, but still overtime I restart the computer I get the message “Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting changes Do not turn off your computer”. Then I have to wait about 30 minutes for this process to take place. The good thing is that each time I seem to load at least 1 more update.
