An analogy I'm rather fond of is comparing progress or healing to chopping down a tree. Each individual swing of the axe seems to have very little individual effect. However, if one keeps swinging, eventually the tree will go down. It will feel like there is no progress; if one judges the effectiveness of an individual swing by whether or not it brings down the tree there is a huge set up for disappointment. When the three does fall, giving the credit to the final swing dishonors every other swing that came before. Each swing of the axe is equally important, for they all contributed to the fall of the tree. With that said, here's how I will be swinging the axe. Workouts: I'll shoot for three KB workouts a week. It doesn't really matter how many reps or how heavy the bell, what matters is I consistently work out. I'll shoot for three stretch sessions a week. At least 30 seconds each of forward fold and squat are what are needed to get credit. That may not seem like much, but consistency even with those two stretches have positive benefits over time. Nutrition: I'll keep cooking as often as I can. I'll eat out as little as possible. Because of my pre-diabetes warning, I'll have as little added sugar as I can. As a warning, I often describe what I have cooked in ways that make people want to eat, so I advise you to come to this thread well fed.
