Diabesity War Day #5 – I Need more Resistance

162975815_XSSo yesterday I had one of those days where I purposefully made a big mistake. It was a co-workers birthday and we found ourselves at lunchtime at a Mexican Restaurant. Yea, I ate a lot. Most of the ingredients were natural other than the shell of the burrito and the chips. The one good thing was that it brought me into a light dinner which consisted of a little beef, a lot of pea’s and a little bit of potato.

Despite the big lunchtime meal I find myself in a good position once again with an acceptable blood sugar reading and lower body weight. Yesterday I ate breakfast at 8:00 AM which reduced my fast to 14 hours. I had strawberries, blueberries and nuts.

My strength training session this morning was insane with reps as I feel my body demanding more of a challenge. Despite raising the weights again I still pushed the envelope to way too many reps as you can see below. I believe I will be raising the bar pretty soon so that my strength matches the challenges of resistance I am working.

The progress I have made so far in just 5 days has been amazing and I look forward to pushing the plan through for another 360 days to see where it will take me.

    Hi there!
    I’m currently trying to stay consistent with a Paleo diet, and I too have found that Mexican restaurants are SO hard to find healthy foods. I wrote a post on a day I also had a work event at a Mexican restaurant giving tips about what to eat if you’re looking to avoid carbs; feel free to check it out!

    Keep up the awesome work!
