I have pushed the envelope of relaxation and preparing to start my workout plan once again tomorrow. I will dust off the bowflex and dust off the treadmill and will be back on track once again. I feel my body getting soft and my joints yearning to be worked and with this I am also ready to get back on the same positive track with the foods I eat. I little snack here and some extra carbs there are starting to take their toll.
This feeling I feel right now is the breaking point. It is the feeling that I can either keep doing what I have been doing for the last 4 weeks and start a trend that will lead me back to destruction, or I can just step back into the game. Off season is over and it is high time I become not just the player on the field but the star.
I know what to expect with the aches and pains for about 2 weeks and I know that my body will try to resist my efforts, but I will push forward and return my body to the level of physical fitness I know it deserves.
I don’t regret this time off as I was working to remedy problems that I was facing with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but this too I have conquered and I am ready to move on. One of the good things about taking some time off is that my body will reset almost like rebooting a computer. Muscles will once again be excited by the lifting routines I push them through and will continue to rebuild in a whole new way. My lungs will learn once again to expand and contract far beyond the normal breathing that I do each day and my body will fill with healthy oxygen to nourish all the cells of my body. I will see my body weight slowly drop as body fat is utilized as fuel and muscles become more carved when I look in the mirror.
So let me get through this Friday and wake tomorrow to a brand new day on Saturday morning. The sun will shine as brightly as the inspiration I feel in my heart.
