I am gearing up to really get going. I have been doing better, but I needed the groceries to really get started on carb-cycling. I bought a load from Costco today and will get the rest of what I need tomorrow to stock up. Going to both places was too much for one day. I am planning a low-carb day tomorrow. Monday will be high-carb with a cheat meal. I know that is soon, but we have plans for Labor Day that were already made. The slow plan on carb cycling allows you to have a cheat meal every other day. I know that is not advisable, but that is one reason I chose this. I thought, if nothing else, I could do the slow plan. If I'm struggling, I would know that even if I can't have something today, I can have it tomorrow. I really want to get started on a faster plan, but that is there if I need it.
I plan to get started on the recumbent bike Tuesday morning. Today I did a lot of walking and will tomorrow too. Monday I plan to be in the pool a little bit and am going to do some stretching, etc. then. And maybe some treading water, which will be a little cardio. I still haven't gotten through the exercise part of Chris Powell's book, so need to do that. I won't be able to do everything he recommends. I do want to start on some core exercises for my back's sake and a lot of stretching, which I think will help my pain levels. I just need to get going on some sort of routine.
I still feel a little weak-willed, but I need to remember, "There is no try -- just do or don't do." It's time to get going.
