I'm not sure which forum to actually put this on but this seems as good as any.
I'll be moving to Alaska full time soon and I want to be ready for the challenges I'll be facing in the great outdoors, and I'm concerned with how to get into the best shape.
Here is the story: I recently lost a lot of weight and I did it in a hurry (bad idea but it worked)... the thing is I lost a lot of muscle as well as fat and need to build it back (the muscle that is).
I'm no stranger to working out but the fly in the ointment is this: I am working a lot of hours. Both at my regular job and on my rental properties and other projects. To put it plainly I'm bushed! I'm afraid that working out will just further exhaust me and cause me to fall into worse shape instead of build me up.
I have a pretty healthy diet and cook most everything from scratch with organic/natural fixins (no processed foods).
My workouts consist of workin like a dog seven days a week. One choice is to hold off until I get some of these projects completed. I would like to do something sooner than later however.
So if anyone out there has been in a similar situation or has some expertice in training I'd like to hear. I really want to get my strength back, and If I put a few pounds of good healthy muscle on I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it!
