Today marked the end of Week 3 in the training regime. It is also the start of the Victoria Day long weekend. Some changes are obvious. I am not indulging the vices I enjoy so much, I am exercising at least 5 days a week, my diet is healthier and I am sleeping more (usually). As a result, I have lost some weight (8 lbs), I am starting to look better and I am feeling better. You would expect that, although I am bit surprised at how quickly the transformation is taking place. There are also some interesting changes, I didn't anticipate.
Because of the long weekend, there was office work I was determined to get done and I missed today's workout. It actually made me grumpy. I guess that says something about how much I am into the training and how much I need those endorphins. And then tonight, I decided I could have a May 24 indulgence. No, I didn't put back a case of suds. I went to one of my favourite burger joints and ordered a double banquet burger, onion rings, fries with gravy and a Coke! I should mention that since I started training, I have pretty much cut out sugar and caffeine from my diet. The sugar was on purpose, the caffeine just sort of happened. I have no idea why. Anyways, remember how I said I am getting more sleep? Not tonight, that one can of Coke got me completely wired. That never happened before. A month ago, I could drink coffee and Coke all day and all night ... and fall asleep like a baby for 4 or 5 hours.
So I can't sleep. And I have a new blog. And now you know why.
