My Body is Sore Today. Woo Hoo!

508ee952039872dd4fb4c1912cdde17aMy body is sore this morning and it feels great. I know that soreness also means a slight discomfort all the way up to the point of pain, but is also a prime indicator that I worked my muscles yesterday. I did not overwhelm my muscles in the same fashion of that of a body builder, but I did mix in quite a few routines to get a balanced workout and with just one set of each exercise I worked each muscle group to it’s max. I know that the soreness will subside later today but the memory of the feeling that caused this soreness will stay with me always.

My blood sugar numbers are back down under 100 and my body weight has also dropped down slightly. I believe that with consistency of this workout routine in combination with proper rest, healthy foods and living a more simple life will take me to a destination of near perfection in my cause. Today I am doing cardio on the treadmill and I better get to it. See ya later.

Blood Sugar- 89, Weight- 180.6

Distance- 2.70 miles
Time- 40:00 minutes
Calories- 315.2

    Wow. Your blood sugar is fantastic today.

    I had a great day at the gym myself, but of course, nothing that approaches your level. Still, that sore, tired feeling can be really satisfying.

    Cheers, Billy.
