Well, day one is half way through and I feel excellent.  My workout went well this morning and I still feel energized and ready to conquer the world. 

I split my routine between resistance training and intervals this morning.  Starting with weights I tackled squats, clean and Press, Chin-ups, shoulder press, Bench Press, and sit-ups.  I even managed to increase my bench press to 215 lbs.  That was a big boost for me.

Then I got on the treadmill and was able to get into my intervals.  I did four cycles (7, 6.5, 7.5, and 8 mph) of 2 minutes walking and 1 minute sprinting.  By the time I go to the last two I smiled a diabolical grin to myself, thinking, “If only you knew what was coming next body.”  I pushed my heart rate from 140 to 179 and back down to 140, over and over again. 

And when all was done I was able to run up two flights of stairs with as much pep in my step as when I first entered the gym. 

On the eating front I will admit loathing having to turn down mashed potatoes and a biscuit.  Instead I had turkey on greens with kidney beans.  (I didn’t intend for that to rhyme).  Now I just have to remain constant through dinner and that horribley tempting period between dinner and bedtime.

    I’ve been lazy and have not been exercising like normal. But my weight stays pretty much the same, 130 lbs, I’m 5’9″ tall, so that’s about right. I think power walking on the treadmill does me about as much good as anything.

    I should have posted earlier on your pic post, but I am waaaaaay behind.
