This week saw some exciting things develop that I am not ready to reveal. When the time is right I will share photos and information with you regarding the good news I got this week.
Positive of Future Accomplishments
Over the past several years I have tried many different things with varied success. However, at this point I am certain that I am going to make some huge progress towards my goals in the very near future. That's right! I am positive that I will be making some huge progress in the very near future.
I had read an article that explained a way to determine if your metabolism is damaged. It suggested taking your temperature right before going to bed 4 nights in a row. It then said to average those 4 numbers and determine your average body temperature. My number came out to 95 degrees. I am a full 3.6 degrees below normal on an average basis. According to what I've read, my metabolism is definitely damaged at this point. The good news is that there is a fix for it. You have to eat more for a period of time to rev up the metabolism again.
I happened to have in my digital library a copy of a Metabolism Repair Manual by Leigh Peele. I read through that book recently and confirmed that the fix is to eat more over the next 2 weeks minimum. I plan to fix this issue right away.
Change in Training Coming Up
I am going to be making some adjustments to my training program. Essentially I am going to shorten up my rest periods between sets quite a bit to up my fat burning potential during my weight training. That will also help to give me a little bit of a metabolic boost. It is the small things like this that make a difference in the long run.
