Lately I have been a bad boy. I haven't gone to the gym in a couple/three weeks and it sort of has slipped away. I really want to get back into working out and it really needs to be done quickly.
So I ended up reading Weight Lifting for Dummies. Sadly enough just in the couple hours I have been reading it, it has given me better information then our old trainer did. It explains why you wait 48 hours between working out the muscles again, why you need to drink water so much (more then just dehydration), etc.
So this week I am going to go back and start working out. I always have an excuse that I don't have enough time. But to be perfectly honest its more laziness than anything. I have a lot of time, I can adjust what I do in the afternoon, and if that is too packed I could go work out in the morning. Also part of me has been holding off because ethicalcannibal
has been too sick and I have been "waiting" for her. Which of course is truly a lie, I was just being lazy.
I don't think I will look like a model, nor do I want to get skinny. I would like however to get in better shape, get more energy, sleep better, and not end up with bone loss and muscle issues when I am older. Also, I would like to get in good enough physical condition, that maybe during Season 3 of Dying Light I wont be dead after trying to fight twentysomethings for ten minutes.
I think I am going to do the beginner full body workouts 3 times a week. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I keep saying that I don't have the time, but like I said earlier that is a lie and I just need to write it down on the calendar and treat it like its already required and just go.
Tomorrow I will put a little workout diary together (or maybe find my old one), get my program set up and then Friday go in. I feel bad not waiting for ethicalcannibal
but I am sure part of that is laziness too. Besides, the more workouts I can get in, the better I can look for her :).
