Working Out

Been a while since my last post so I thought that I would write and give you a little update.
Working out is still going really well, my cousin, which is also a personal trainer has been helping to learn more about nutritional supplements. Up to this point, I have always thought that supplements and steroids would be in the same category, boy was I wrong. I have been making it so hard on myself by trying to each X grams of protein and Y grams of Carbohydrates, and all the while failing because it is IMPOSSIBLE to track everything you eat if you eat anything from a restaurant OR from the grocery. Not to mention the weird chemical reactions that happen between the elements that can create and destroy the effects of one another. Thus, we have supplements. A supplement is a pre-measured amount of ALL of the nutrition that your body needs. For example, if I know that I want X grams of protein and Y grams of Carbs, I can drink the right amount of a meal replacement shake and be set. The only downside to this is that you don’t always get the satisfaction of tasting food. Oh well, small price to pay.
Also, related to working out, I have been drinking MASSIVE amounts of water each day to try and get my body to get rid of some of the water that it has been storing. This is not easy, you get REALLY sick of the taste of water believe it or not. I am trying to drink 1.5 to 2 gallons of water each day, but so far I have been drinking about 1 gallon. I am constantly amazed by how the body works, the fact that it really is just a machine that takes all kinds of fuel just floors me.
Well, I believe that is all that is new with me right now, things have been pretty quite with me lately. πŸ™‚
