Yay! It’s 4:00 AM and I am up, I am alive and ready to take on my day. The coffee is brewing and my heart is stirring as I look forward to a 1 mile fast paced walk on the treadmill and 15 minutes of muscle training on the bowflex.
Yes, I woke up this morning feeling like a spark has ignited a fire inside me that brings about an excitement of being alive. “Hello World”, Ha Ha Ha. I’m am breaking away from this winter funk and getting ready for an incredible 3 seasons that follow.
I am doing a Shoulder routine this morning with very low weight and it feels more like a yoga session as my tight muscles and joints are stretching out after almost 4 months of being rested. I absolutely love this feeling and my body is acting in a way that is releasing hormones through my body that let me know it.
I am setting out on developing this same pattern to be worked each morning for six days out of the week. The morning mile followed up by a different body part each day on the bowflex. I have no idea where this will take me this year, but what I do know is that it has started and that is the most important objective I have right now.
Now it is time to start readjusting my diet to slowly allow my body to burn off the added fat that I have packed on over the winter months. By the time Spring arrives I should be set in a regular routine that will fuel this process even faster. It’s time to bring back the organic salad during the day and the banana at breakfast. It’s time to slow down the carb intake as my body no longer will need the extra energy to fight off the cold weather. And soon it will be planting season which will give way to having fresh vegetable will flourish in my home. Soon I will be hiking the mighty trails of Oregon once again to find bliss sitting next to the powerful waterfall.
