For reason’s of accountability I have decided rather than post what I will eat today I will instead post what I ate yesterday. Yesterday morning I posted that I fasted until 12:00 noon, but when I arrived at work I felt the need for some fruit and nuts at as early as 7:30 AM and did eat at that time.
So anyway, yesterday started with a Banana, a Berry mix, pistachio’s at 7:30 AM. Lunch was Roast Beef, Potato, Peas (left over’s from the night before), And dinner was Chicken Parm with Spaghetti and a large salad.
I feel like I am making progress despite the fact that my morning glucose number are creeping up. I am watching this closely and if I don’t see a drop I may need to make a few adjustment to the diet.
The switch from beer to red wine after work seems to be working out well. I have learned to have just two glasses and it seems to allow me to wind down.
The workout is coming along well also. I am making progress on the treadmill each day with burning a little more calories in 40 minutes than I did the day before. The weights are getting a little more heavy as I am trying to keep that one set I do at around 20 reps. As you can see with each workout I am getting stronger as the reps are going higher instead of lower which means that I will have to raise them again next workout. One recent change I have made is adding abdominal work every other day. The core is so important to keep strong that it will be the number one muscle group that I stay very consistent with.
