Today’s workout in the books!
I weighed in at 231, another 2lbs. I’m enjoying the intermittent fasting routine now that I’m finally used to it. The routine today involved a lot of cable work and single arm and leg movements. Cable workouts are nice because I feel a consistent tension in the muscle group.
We’re finally getting some cooler weather in Michigan. This is the time when discipline will be required, particularly when the roads get clogged up with ice and snow. I don’t drive that far to the gym, but it is still treacherous.
My posting in my daily quotes section discussed habits. This is one of the best habits you can establish for yourself. Exercise improves flexibility, cardio vascular health, muscle tone, appetite, and even the quality of your sleep. I had my blood work done at the doc a few weeks back and it was flawless. For a 54-year old, that’s great news! I attribute this to my exercise routine and diet. Two habits that did not come easy.
The only advice I can give you in respect to this is DO IT. This is one habit you don’t want to ignore. Exercise improves every aspect of my life. It is the cornerstone of my habits because it brings the best return on investment. For just little over an hour of my time each day the benefits I reap are awesome.
Remember to start small. Small habits become bigger habits. Bigger habits become rituals in your day. These rituals fill your time and contribute to a great life. A life that is healthy and happy.
If you are having a really difficult time starting a health habit, read this book: Mini Habits by Stephen Guise. This book helped me establish some life-long habits that will always be a part of my day-to-day. Once you get some momentum, you’ll find creating other great habits will follow.
I hope you are all having a great Thursday!
See you tomorrow…
