I know it is another body Rabyd Post but that is where I have been thinking these days. My health and body have on my mind all day. I went and paid my gyms fees today so I am good up until September. That however is the smallest part of things on my mind about my health and part of it is what goals I should have now. I have also been thinking hard about how having diabetes affects what my goals are and really it does not change them much. I have been debating though what the main goal needs to be and that is to find some way to reverse this thing and no longer be diabetic.
The Body Rundown:
Weight Lifting: The only thing that really affects my weight lifting these days is this hernia thing where the Doctor says I have to be careful not to do Crunch type movements. Thankfully if good form is followed not a lot of exercises have this problem – I will still keep going with the lighter weights and higher reps for now until I get it repaired. It can take one to six weeks to recover from surgery so I will have to make sure I don’t make it worse.
Cardio: Hiking Training will start by hiking. I am thinking everyday on the rails to trials for a half hour each day trying to go farther each time. Then add ten minutes every two days or so till I get to an hour. If the weather does not cooperate, then I can use the gym. I want to be doing day hikes on the weekend in June.
Flexibility: This is hard as I think I will have to do it before weight lifting.
Nutrition: This is the key thing more than ever now. I need to get control of this to the point my fat percentage drops and thus I can start to see progress against the diabetes thing. I have only been drinking water so far and put a moratorium on simple carbs, we will see what the people suggest on Wednesday.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
