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. www.vitaminshoppe.com/st
