Well, Winter is well and truly over and now it is time for the big push to get fit for Christmas. Today is November 1st , fifty odd days until Christmas and time to seriously get into the training and healthy eating.
I’ll admit I have been a bit slack lately with my eating habits. The one lesson I repeatedly fail to learn is that I really have no self control when it comes to chocolate. I see it on special in the supermarket and think I can limit myself to a 100 calorie portion a day but noooo….. So no more chocolate will be purchased until after Christmas. The same goes for wine. I have four bottles in the larder - it will have to last until Christmas.
Exercise will be intense with an emphasis on the upper body and gaining muscle definition. A two pronged attack – reduce fat, gain definition.
I upped my weights the other day by 2KG and I felt it. It is amazing how the body adapts to certain exercises that you do regularly. Change a feature of those exercises, like a very modest addition of two one kg weights and your body complains. Complaints are good though as long as no injury is experienced.
I’m fighting a battle against muscle loss as a result of aging so I’m not expecting things to be easy.
