Yesterday was a good day as I started it walking at a slightly challenging pace and eating well all through out the day. Then came dinner with it’s fine selection of store prepared, sugar laced chicken wings which were absolutely delicious filled by a large piece of strawberry short cake. I am certainly not happy with the results of this action, but I will have to store it into my memory banks as one of those things not to do and move on.
This morning I am lifting heavy and giving it every ounce of energy my body can muster. I am starting to feel some relief with strength training every other day rather than every day and it is showing up in increased efforts on the bowflex. Just because I changed my schedule to reduce inflammation I don’t believe this gives me the excuse to not exert the maximum amount of effort to each routine. The muscle burn I feel while doing these routines is intense and provides for a certain level of pleasure that can only be described as satisfaction.
I will straighten out these few problems I face with diet and get back to the point where sugars and excess, non healthy carbs are a thing of the past. I will delight in making fresh vegetables the major component of this lifestyle I choose to live and will start shedding the fat that remains intact in and around the muscles of this body of mine. I will look into the mirror and see the body I am working so hard to attain and will let nothing stand in my way as I pursue this journey of good health.
