Making my way down the road...

Monday, January 23, 2012

Aside from a difficult day in the gym yesterday, this has been a very positive month for me. My body fat continues to fall away, and I now see more definition in my torso than I can remember.

My upper body - especially my shoulders and upper chest - is coming along well, but I'm still a little loose in the lower belly.

Yesterday, I went sledding in the AM with my daughter. It wasn't very physically challenging. I was on my feet for a good portion of the day, and I believe I ate well over the past couple days.

About 4PM I tried to run on a treadmill, but the pace quickly dropped off and I dies about the 2 mile mark. Still better than nothing, but not the 4-5 miles I was shooting for. My legs felt very heavy, and I was profusely sweating (it was tremendously hot in the fitness center at the time). Mind you my energy levels have been terrific for the past few weeks, so I don't think I was experiencing a caloric issue or lack of adequate carbs (I've been careful to consume some chocolate skim milk with two scoops of True Vitality Protein).

SO while I have no idea why I couldn't "go long" - I'm certainly going to give it another shot towards the end of this week, while continuing to eat well.

    It could be so many things - did you drink a lot of water during the day before you went to the gym?, are you coming down with an illness?, what were you doing all day before the gym?, what type of nutrients did you have all day before you went? OR it could simply have been that you have been doing to much and needed a "day off" or a "light day" at the gym.
