Creation of “The T2D Workout”

8cA6oyrkiI am feeling a little more confident today with a blood sugar level this morning at 93. My weight is going up but I have noticed that my pants are feeling even looser and I am actually starting to feel like I am getting ripped. Muscles are increasing in size and getting stronger as the weeks pass and fat is being burned at a significant rate. Even this morning I am pushing up 310 pounds like it is a piece of paper like I am in total beast mode. Is it the fact that once again the seasons are changing as the weather is getting warmer and the sun is out much longer, or is it the workout plan that I created.

Could it be that I have finally reached a point of really good health on a program that I have been working on for well over a year now? Whatever it is it certainly is a phenomenal feeling inside and I welcome it.

On average this workout has been taking me a total of just 45 minutes each morning and I feel that the results are so much better than the routine I was doing which was taking me past two hours each morning. I don’t typically like to put labels on things but in this case I believe that it deserves the title of, “The T2D Workout”. Over the next few days I am going to work on creating a downloadable PDF file on this routine for anyone who wants to try it out. I am actually pretty curious to see it it works as well for others as it does for me.

    Am looking forward to your T2D plan. I don’t have the exercise equipment (except treadmill), but could probably improvise with free weights that I do have.

    The weight increase sounds like an increase in lean body mass. Attitude sounds like it is right on track. Isn’t it an incredible feeling to really know what it FEELS like to be healthy? I said in past posts that motivation is caused by 2 words that both begin with the letter “P”; PAIN and PLEASURE
    Doesn’t it feel great to be motivated by the PLEASURE of feeling healthy than the PAIN of being unhealthy?

    • Absolutely! Something has really changed and it feels incredible. Even as a young athlete I can’t remember a time where I continued a work out plan for more than maybe 6 months. I didn’t realize that continued efforts would lead to dramatic changes like this. Wow!
