This morning my workout is finally showing signs of life as I have stepped it up by raising the weights and moving into a two set plan for each exercise. I can once again feel the rush of blood flooding my muscles as I approach the end of each set with that last rep pushing to the breaking point of my strength.
There was a moment over this long winter where I thought I had lost the love of this art of body building. With just a spark of excitement I find myself thrilled once again to feel my body come back to life.
As I take a small break between each exercise I once again feel the endorphins being released and sending rewards throughout my body to congratulate me on a job well done. I feel calm, I feel relaxed and I can’t help to sit here and smile.
I slowly shedding my winter skin as I approach the delight of a new season. The strength of my mind will get me up in the morning filled with anticipation and the strength of my body will guide me through building new muscle while shedding old fat.
It is the dawn of the awakening of the Beast and he has been asleep for too long.

With a workout like this one I feel my body eating fat for breakfast. In about an hour I will supply it with much needed protein. This is the time that I have to seriously start toning my meal plans throughout the day. A little higher protein, higher good fat and balanced carbs. I will start working on that.
