When working a two fold routine (cardio + strength training) I notice that my body weight can go up one day then down the next. This because white I am burning fat I am also building muscle. And this is also a reason not to worry too much about what the scale reads each day. Overall my body weight will continue to drop at an average of around 1 pound per week.
I am slowing down my routine today because I feel a cold coming on. I am hoping that it is just allergies, but if it is a cold burning up too much needed energy is not good when I might need it later to help fight off the cold. I will cut my treadmill time in half and not take the weights to the limit of my power.
Yesterday was a breakfast eating day so I have a banana, berries and a little granola at 8:00 AM, lunch was a hotdog, beans and sauerkraut followed by a salad and for dinner I ate a small pork chop, 1/2 baked potato and broccoli.
I am really looking forward to getting away next week as I am slowly packing all of the things I will need for a weeks vacation in Florida. The nice this is that I am packing little clothing as the weather will call for mostly shorts and sandals. As I will not have my equipment to work my routine each day as scheduled while I am away I have decided to stop the “Diabetes War” until I return. But during vacation time I will find ways to work out each day like running the beach in the morning and continuing to eat healthy and simply write about those things each day. Of course when I return I will certainly pick up where I left of as I will still have an additional 50 weeks to monitor. While my time has been limited each morning to working out and writing about it I really miss writing posts about other things that interest me like life, minimalism and many of the other subjects I tend to write about. The weeks vacation will give me a little more freedom to both write different types of posts and also read others posts.
