Getting *Back* In Shape
So I think this is a normal part of about 90% of all people's lives if they get a little out of shape after being in good shape. You were in a great fitness state and got a little lazy due to work or whatever. Next thing you know you're about 10-15 lbs over weight if you're lucky. So starting a week ago I got started dieting, eating better and exercising to get that 15 lbs off.
Better Eating 5 Days a Week
Monday through Friday I am eating low carbohydrates and high protein. I eat yogurt with a bit of granola for breakfast each morning. Subway wraps, chicken breasts, smoothies and vegetables for lunch. Dinner is mainly about avoiding carbohydrates so I'm eating any meat, vegetables but not bread or pasta.
Metabolism Boosters & Vitamins
In order to help myself with appetite and working out along with the diet I've been using a metabolism booster that my girlfriend picked up. Apparently the person who produces or destributes this suppliment is a Baton Rouge based person so I figure what the hell. So I've been taking X-Tream N.R.G appetite supressor and metabolism booster from Team Canyon / Shawn Cotten. Its really worked for my appetite and has boosted my energy for a week really good. So I'll keep posting my review of the product.
Exercising & Light Weight Lifting
Basically I go jogging every afternoon. 1-3 mile run at about an 8 minute pace right now. My extra weight has really slowed my pace in running so I have to take it easy in order to get alot of running in to really burn my calories. Running in Baton Rouge's Shenandoah neighborhood keeps it fun and interesting. I hit the heavy bag in my garage for about 10 minutes and do some weight exercises with a curl bar I have. I also throw kicks and shadow boxing to help work my flexibility and waste. I'm really looking to drop my body fat and gain muscle so I do alot of reps with all my exercises. Pushups, pushups pushups.
