Diabesity Challenge Day #36 – A Declaration of War

victoryOK, it’s high time I stop playing games here with both exercise and diet. It’s time to stop making excuses and start taking action. It is time to return to full blown “Beast Mode” workout each day. No more fucking excuses! I will eat healthy, work hard and give this program every last ounce of energy I can possibly give. I deserve better than to sit around and whine and complain about this and that. If I make a mistake now and then so be it. Shit happens, but it is never an excuse to start playing the giving up game. Get over it and move on. If I am exhausted then I rest. Now and then I will need a day off so I don’t need to make up excuses for this. Just take the fucking day off, rest up and move on.

I am returning to a place where I felt most comfortable in body building. I will work 1 heavy, intense routine each morning Monday through Friday early in the morning. I will perform 3 complete sets of each exercise with just 2 minutes of rest between each. I will take each set to the very last rep my strength will take me to the point of total discomfort. After work if I feel like doing cardio I will. The weekends will be cardio days and there will be no strength training at all. My muscles will have two whole days to rest, recover and grow.

I don’t eat that shit! This is the motto and thought that will remain on my mind as I encounter certain foods during the day. I know what I can eat and what I cannot eat. No excuse! I know that the key to losing body fat is more about the diet than it is exercise so if I want that extra weight around my mid section to go away I must be true to my diet. Sugar and carbs have little room to play in this body and replacing glucose with ketones as fuel is certainly not easy. I have done it before and I can do it again.

This body of mine will be beautiful, I will will conquer Type II Diabetes and I will prove to myself that age is not an excuse for being the best I can be. I am formally declaring war on all of the things that attempt to stand in my way and will win each battle I face along the way until I can plant my flag into the ground and declare victory.

  3. I’ve been doing the same since March and I’m seeing big time results! Just go for it. But, hey. Take a day off from time to time and have some fun. Do something you enjoy. We may not be 20 anymore but I’m still about 30 in my head! 🙂 Days off having fun really help you to stick to the program!
