Working Out Daily:  A New Year Lifestyle Change

January 23, 2017

I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions.  Most flame out after a few weeks. But I was sitting around my place on January 2nd thinking of how much spare time I had after work every day.  I decided to make a lifestyle improvement and the next day I signed up for a gym membership at the local community center here in Maryville, Missouri. 

Today was day 20 of consecutive days I had gotten exercise.  

My workout regimen is 3 miles daily on the treadmill followed by weights that involve arms, chest and abs specifically.

After just one week, I noticed how hungry I was throughout the day because of my increased metabolism.  It made me feel good about myself.  Eating many small meals is better than eating 3 large ones.

My work day at the radio station begins at 5:00am.  During my time on the air until around 9:00, I try to consume at least two 40 oz glasses of water. Making a concerted effort to drink more water and less soda.  After work, I then change clothes and head right to the gym.

I feel stronger and have more energy and don’t get cravings for as much junk food. My favorite junk food is COOKIES.  But now I don’t feel as bad as having one or two a few times a week since I am exercising.

The main reason for my early success is due to making exercise a ROUTINE. Health nuts stress making daily exercise a part of your every day activities so you also make it a HABIT.  That’s what I have done.

I haven’t lost much weight per say, but I know I am adding muscle mass and of course muscle weighs more than fat, so I am not concerned.  But I have noticed I am fitting more comfortably into my pants.  

It’s very early in my process, but I am encouraged with what I am doing and I hope perhaps this short blog will prompt you to do the same, if you’re not already getting your heart rate moving daily. 

Thanks for reading.
