Several weeks ago I started hitting the treadmill after so many lazy months of winter. That lasted about a week, I went to Palm Springs and replaced the workouts with hiking and when I returned I just let the week pass without any efforts at all.
The last three days have shown improvement as I have been doing small 20 minute workouts each morning alternating each day between cardio and strength training. I have to tell you that I am feeling pretty beat up right now but as I recall this the same way I felt each time I restarted a workout program after a long period without it.
It is difficult to remember a day here where it is not raining or the skies are just grey. Although I do love living in the Pacific Northwest I have to tell you that at times it becomes rough with these long winters.
My blood sugar has been increasingly going up and it was due to this fact that I found the inspiration to find my way back. It is high time I get back on track and not allow my body to create this toxic environment within me that could soon kill me. No, I will not allow it! I will fight each day to push myself to drive this sugar from my blood stream and drop the 20 pounds of fat that I put on over the last 5 months. My diet will be pure and not include all the processed crap that I have been eating.
I will develop a plan to provide positive light and heat in my garage where my gym is set up so even though it is grey, damp and wet outside I will look forward to finding comfort in my workout area each winter.
