Spring and Summer Proposed Routine

For the next few months I'll be trying to build some muscle. I'm hoping that continues to help with my blood glucose. I'll track weight and blood pressure more, though I'm not posting those daily.

Continuing to stay relatively low-carb and increasing my salad intake as well more fruits. I don't have the energy to track my food in a super specific way. I was recently asked to share a non-meat recipe for a class. All I could come up with was a whipped-cream fruit salad that I do without any additional sugar added. I can share that if there's interest.

Most of the time I just eat. Not tracking my sugar 4 times a day has changed how close I track each meal. However I'll start to talk a little bit about how I think different foods impact me. I'm also a lot more interested in staying as close to the same weight as possible.

As for workouts, they will be a little bit different and I'll need to post things so I can find the workout quickly online. Will be more interesting.

So I'll be doing 3 sets instead of 4 to start with and change deadlifts from 3 times a week, to 2 times a week. I want to make sure I'm balancing my workouts so as to not overstress my joints. I may do another max testing at the end of the year.

Here's what I'm going to try for the first month (edited):

Squat 5 sets going for 12, 10, 8, 6, and 10
Superset 1
DB Lunges for three sets of 12
Push-up for three sets of 15-25
Superset 2
Romanian Deadlift four sets of 10
Rows four sets of 8-10

Overhead Press 3 sets for 12, 10, and 8

Deadlifts 5 sets for 12, 10, 8, 6, and 10
Superset 1
Bench Press for four sets 10, 8, 6, and 10
DB Squat for four sets of 12-15
Superset 2
Pull-ups 5 sets
Hip bridge 5 sets of 25

Reverse Fly for 3 sets of 10-15

Incline Bench 5 sets for 12, 10, 8, 6, and 10
Superset 1
Squat 3 sets of 8
DB Rows 3 sets of 10-12
Superset 2
Curls 4 sets of 12
Tricep Extensions 4 sets of 10-12

BW Lunges 50 total

I'll add some core work daily. There will need to be a worksheet or something for this so I can

I'll stick to sets of 6-12 for 4 months. Then I'll go for sets of 3-5 for a couple of months. I'll review program, weight, and measurements trying to keep relatively similar weight. I will also be checking in with Lee on progress. Hoping to get stronger and healthier!

Breathing and Exercise

I'm looking at a variety of training ideas. Breathing is important and I'm trying to include it into my training consciously. Hopefully this will add to my workout.

ABOUT THE BLOG: This blog started years ago to talk about self-care and weightlifting. It stopped for a few years. It was restarted when I was told that I was diabetic. I had an A1C of 9.3. A1C is an estimate of your blood sugar level over the last 3 months and 6.5 is pre-diabetic, and usually over 7 is considered diabetic. In March I was re-tested and my A1C was 5.0. That's below pre-diabetic (so, essentially non-diabetic). It was nice to have my doctor say, "you used to be diabetic." I'm still working on improving my insulin sensitivity and not thinking I&…
