I ate way too much yesterday after working my legs in the morning and did not feed the beast enough protein. Sometimes I make these mistakes and end up paying for it, but the lessons of life go on and today is a brand new day.
Since I have a little kink in my right ankle I have chosen to skip cardio today and move right on to working my abs. It has been two months since I did any type of exercise to work my abs and like always I will be taking it easy. I have lost a lot of definition in this area and look forward to bringing it back. Just like the legs and back, it is just as important to keep your abs strong and flexible. As we get older there are so many tasks that we depend on the motion of bending over and picking things up and without a strong middle section these tasks can become daunting. The photos I took today of my abs I am not going to post on my blog as they are a little too revealing, but will keep them in a folder to review in 6 months.
As I am slowly approaching my first day working a new job I find myself studying each day to learn all of the code necessary to become effective in the field. I know that I must do this for a long time to eventually pass tests to qualify for certain certifications that will propel my career even further. This means that I will have to find dedicated time each day to get this done and right now the only time I can come up with is the early hours of the day when I have most energy and enthusiasm. This also means that I will have to give up something in the morning hours to accomplish it. I certainly do not want to give up my workout routine and the only other activity I do is writing this blog. This means I may have to limit my writing time to just the weekends. I have been writing each day consistently each day for some time now as I am approaching my 1000th post and it would be difficult to give up this practice. But in the long run it may have to be this way until I can find myself in a position where I am comfortable in my new career.
I thought about studying after work but like everything else I find it difficult to concentrate after a long day and as a morning person I have always found that my best work is performed early in the day. There are many bloggers who do not publish a daily post but for me my blog as always been my personal journal and I find it comforting to get thoughts out of my head and into the form of writing to be a great comfort each day. On the other hand I am sure that I will find more to write about if I am limiting it to just one day a week. I will have to think about this further, but for right now I know where I have to concentrate my efforts.
