Back To The Gym

HiiT It !

I am finally heading back to the gym today after about a month off. I will be honest I am a little nervous. I mentioned a while ago that I was doing D1 fitness, a pretty bad ass training facility here in Raleigh. It is probably the most exhausting and challenging workout that I have every done.  I was slowly starting to get into the groove of the HiiT style workout, then I stopped.  My body is going to hate me today.

Rethinking My "Diet"

Wild, Paleo, low card, high carb, carb cycling IFFYM, the list goes on and on. So what is the best "diet" for me ? Not sure. I am a firm believer that every single person is different when it comes to eating. One diet may work well for one person but not another.  What has worked for me in the past? Hmmm good question.  I would have to say Paleo worked well, a low carb approach, and eating "wild" all seemed to show some promise.  The thing that worries me the most about low carb, higher fat/protein approach is the affect that it will have on bad cholesterol and my body. I know, I know, the research is out there saying this or that, but it still worries me. I am not going to jump on the bandwagon just yet because someone wrote a book or I read it on the internet. I am going to research the heck out of it myself.....on the internet.  :)
