I Am Ready to Workout Once Again

tumblr_n2c3q3N7ds1qd45ayo1_1280I 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.

Blood Sugar- 112, Weight- 181.2

    I too need to get back on track with the exercise, it’s tough until I get in my new house, not knowing this neighborhood and such, I wish you luck getting back on your fitness goals!

    Glad to see you’re getting back in the saddle again. I recall that I wrote about what happens when you stop exercising. The short version is “nothing good.”

    I hear you there. Sometimes when you end up having longer off than you anticipated, it can throw you off.

  4. Your post today was great. Getting right back at it will have many benefits!

    Good for you….just keep the beast at bay!!! go slow at first my friend, I feel I have been around enough to know that you are going to start and the “take it to limit” is going to push in….push it back….I am not an expert and I know that you realize that keeping it mild to moderate for awhile to make sure your delicate IBS system is ready for the a little of the beast….don’t mean to nag….but!!!! LOL enjoy the dusting and getting back at it….the sun will shine on you no matter….kat

    You’ve got this. Hang in there my friend. Our lives are full of new starts. It’s the new starts that keep us fresh so that we do not grow stagnate like still water.
