Some Nights



Most nights tiring,

but some nights are fun.

That’s what life is all about.

I went to the gym consistently last month and doing small food changes such as eating less processed food and eating more fruits and vegetable. I am seeing and feeling some results. It feels great going to the gym in the morning. It gets my blood flowing. However, I think I can get better results if I program my workouts better.

I have been listening to TheFitCast Podcast with Kevin Larrabee during work. It got me thinking about fitness in a different light. Fitness and nutrition is very cool stuff and it is something that I am very interested in learning more and pursuing. The podcast gave me many ideas on how I can make my workout better.

Instead of doing cardio to warm up everyday other day, I can do some stretching and foam rolling. I hear this is good for massaging away tension in the muscle. In addition, I can do more weight lifting. Maybe an upper body and lower body split. It is going to take a toil on my body but I think I am ready for a challenge.

In order to reach my goals, I need to have goals that are measurable and reachable. Here are some of my fitness goals:

1. Gain muscle mass — I need to find a way to measure this. I read that gaining 1 lb of muscle a week is very difficult but possible with the perfect storm. Maybe I can gain 2 lbs of muscle in one month. That would be the goal.

2. 30 Pull Ups — This goal is more straightforward and might a part to reach goal 1. I need a progression to reach the magic number 30.

3. Squats, Bench Press — Learn the right forms to heavy lifting exercises.

More on these goals later this week.
