In the Gym

I did finish the Master cleanse and felt a lot better. I have been in the gym faithfully for about 4 weeks now. I am starting to feel stronger and I have lost 3 pounds. I have just about gotten my eating under control. And by under control, I mean I have just about eliminated all the sugar, high sodium foods, and bad carbs. I am eating chicken and fish for protein and lots of green veggies, nuts & grains.

I go to the gym five days a week. I work a different muscle group everyday, plus 30 minute of cardiovascular training. The first two weeks I was doing upper body one day, skip a day then, lower body. That didn’t seem to work for me. By the time I was back to the upper body my arms were too sore from the previous workout to do other exercises for my chest and shoulders. So I switched it up. The everyday, one muscle group is much more accomidating.

My other main goal right now is not to quit. In the past I always quit before I ever accomplished anything, or, I never got my eating turned around and under control. Right now, I have. I just need to keep it that way, forever.

I am 51 years old. I am fat. I started at 260, gained a pound, then lost 3. I am at 257 lbs. My goals is 164-170, and to maintain a health life-style for the rest of my days.
