Well it seems that it is time for a little reworking of my diet and exercise routine. I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle, but I like to eat as much as anyone and I often choose extra sleep over an early workout. Sometimes I am consistent with exercise and sometimes I am consistent with healthy eating. Every now and then they actually match up the two and I consistently feel great.
Lately though, there is a suspicious tightening of my jeans. There is extra body stiffness in the mornings. And I just so happen to be fighting off a head cold. These three things occurring at once can only mean that I have let my routine slip.
This is a strangely predictable cycle for me. I sort of like it though. It keeps me from getting bored with my routine and I search out new and different ways to stay fit. On the unhealthy side of this cycle I search out new and excellent baking recipes.
So here I am tightening the reins of my fitness routine. My goal is to be more consistent with workouts, both strength and cardio. I will also get back to a more strict 6 days of clean eating while always maintaining a free eating day. I’m sure there might be someone else out there that cycles in and out of fitness like I do, so if you would like, please join me. I will be sharing where I make changes and what I am eating. Partly, I share this to make me accountable for my workouts and mostly because when I (and anyone for that matter) record what I am eating, I tend to not cheat as much.
Please feel free to share your workouts and healthy meals. Even share with me as we backtrack a bit; reality happens. And we’re off!
