The truth is that I have had an enjoyable two weeks. It have been walking every day and hitting the weights as well. I feel much better and i am really taking to this idea of hiking as an activity that I can do and enjoy well into my later years. I suppose this was something I needed to do but the doctor’s diagnosis that I currently have diabetes has really caused me to look at activities I can do long term as in lifetime long term.
I have said it before because people are surprised that i would even venture outdoors. It is not that I am not an outdoors person when I want to be. I simply am a guy who has because of various allergies been forced to retreat from the outdoors. Flonase has changed that and oddly enough when I am in better health and fitness I have less allergy problems.
Hiking has a spiritual appeal to me as well. There is something about seeing things that no one else has seen in hiking. Other people sit at their computers and marvel at what others post live – I want to be the live post person.
The Body Rundown:
Cardio: I have been doing training walks and if you head to Rabyd Hiking you can see the full details.
Strength: Solid week of lifting so I am feeling very good. The gym life is starting to be more appealing and as long as people don’t talk to me between sets I am good.
Flexibility: This is the part I need to work on.
Nutrition: The diabetic thing has really caused me to watch very carefully what I eat. Avoiding pasta, bread and simple sugars has done wonders. Junk food and all drinks other than water have vanished. I do have other things to drink but it is usually once a day. Otherwise it has been pure H2O territory.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
