Trying to stay motivated.
Gym every second day. I do a few curls when I wake up in the morning.
It is difficult at this stage though guys...I am angry at myself. I hate the guy in the mirror.
Today, I did some resistance and ?rope? work on about 4 machines, including one that kind of simulated rowing, then about 4 minutes on the water wheel thing with my arms, and a bike ride.
I set the bike to a "random" programme, difficulty 11, whatever that means (they initially advised
, and I rode 14.04 kms within 25 minutes.
5 minute cooldown added about 2ks to that.
I have come across something that's kind of interesting too.
I will be calling it "fake hunger".
After the gym I feel a bit light headed...sometimes headachy even...and I have a "benign tremor" in my hands that really goes off.
I also feel famished. Really REALLY hungry.
I did some reading and it seems like when you go the the gym you pump your metabolism up, and while it's still there you're likely using your fat more.
I think the idea is to leave food alone after gym?
Anyways, that's what I did all the same.
I drank some more water, ignored my hunger, and went to a cafe and had some earl grey tea with skim. TINY amount of honey.
As I was waiting for my teapot to come out, I realised (this was bout a half hour later after gym) that my hunger had subsided.
After reading what I have, I feel, like the conclusion must be that this is the body asking for an easier fuel source, foods, sugars etc.
I didn't give it anything. The hunger went away. Fake hunger.
So I just thought I'd mention that.
I still don't know what my static/resting bpm is, so no great changes have been made.
Just trying to make sure I adhere, and stay a bit longer with the cardio.
