It has been a while since I posted anything about my health, my diet or my exercise routine and for great reason. I have pretty much gotten into a funk with the whole program. I still eat healthy but have been adding a lot of garbage to my daily diet, my sugar has been steady in a good range and I have gotten on the treadmill once in the last month and a half.
So what are the results of this? My body weight has increased 8 lbs, I have given more attention to my current position of employment and I am studying more. I have to admit that I have been much happier but I also know that if I stay on this path it will surely lead to problems down the road.
I know that all I have to do is get on the treadmill for just 30 minutes 3 days per week. One of the biggest reasons for the avoidance of getting on that treadmill is that it has been pretty cold out in the garage early in the morning. I know that I am now working outside each day and doing a lot of running around and know that I have been burning more calories this way than I was working behind a desk all day.
Sometimes it becomes to easy to lie to yourself and actually believe it. The truth is that the early morning workout leads to less of a desire to eat stupid foods during the day and also provides me with incredible energy that helps me get through the day. I know this happens from time to time to the best of us I anticipate getting out of this health funk soon. I have been thinking a lot about this and I decided that it was time to write it down.
I am by no means a couch potato like the picture you see above as I stay constantly busy. And besides I am not a big fan of TV. I will find my way out of this slump before I start turning into a picture of the average American male over the age of 50. This is not me.
