So after weeks of not working out I am finally starting to build myself back up again to start working a daily routine. It’s tough finding may way back but with knowing that I am totally responsible for my own health I can’t simply turn away from daily exercise. A summer cold, a bee sting that blew up like a balloon for days and then an accident of cutting my finger while chopping vegetables threw me into a daily routine of sloth.
My weight has gone up and so has my daily fasting glucose and I am ready to get back on track. Once again I am going to build a routine in which I am going to increase the number of weight bearing exercises each day but cut down the sets to just one. I will be performing this routine on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays while committing myself back to a walking routine on the treadmill on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Sunday will be a day off.
While dedicating just one hour each morning to these rituals I will also be concentrating on getting back to a low carb type of diet. With strength training I will of course be increasing my protein intake slightly to protect the muscles I have built and decreasing foods that readily turn to sugar.
I am building an excel spreadsheet that will become a weekly schedule to follow and have it posted in the garage/gym to jot in numbers each day. As of right now I am not setting any goals for myself other than simply following this routine.
I will not post daily results on this blog but I may write one weekly post about my progress. Since starting this blog years ago I have gone through so many different routines as I have changed how I workout and how I eat. I have come to the conclusion that it’s really all about doing some type of exercise and watching what I eat. Ready, set, GO!
