I went to the gym yesterday and today. I figured that I would do some fasting cardio, so I didn’t eat before hand. Well.. I don’t even really LIKE cardio (but I did some anyway), so I stuck primarily with the weights.. for about 2.5 hours. I know that nothing is going to show for a while, but I’m still extremely excited about hitting all of these muscles, being able to increase my weight everycouple of days, and the feeling of being stronger!
Anyway, I walked out of there and I wanted to eat EVERYTHING.. and I almost did! But, I went home and threw two heads of romaine lettuce and some sauerkraut on some sprouted bread with mustard and peanut-sesame dressing and was grateful that I didn’t mess up.
These workouts aren’t me walking into a gym and being a badass, I am just back to basics. I am trying to get used to the weights and getting some all around strength and muscle built up before I start structuring my workouts!
Regarding my diet, I am a little stuck on the details. The weight is pretty much centered mostly in my stomach and I really need to build muscle. All I know is that I cut out the sugar, so there’s none of that. I am also going to lay off of nuts and seeds for now. I would like to have the weight I gained off by the end of the year along with some muscle and call this a learning experience and not a failure.
