This is a blog entry to remind myself that I can "feel good" -- which I do right now. I just finished a Powerstrikes workout (love Ilaria!). Fought through this semi-chest cold thingy and PMS and just got it done. She makes it fun.
My DH made it to 30 days sober late last last week...and is continuing on. Amen! I feel like we are more of a "team" again rather than enemy combatants co-existing under the same roof. As he works to free himself from the fog of a long cycle of toxic abuse, he appears to be much more grateful for what he has and less focused on what he doesn't have and never will. May the clouds continue to part with each passing day.
On a lighter note, I am wondering why I seem to burn far fewer calories than others Sparkers who weigh about what I do right now and do similar activities I know everyone is different, but the disparity is big. Does this mean I am more fit? I use a HRM, so I'm pretty sure the stats are accurate. I work out hard, to the DVDs i have -- try to mix them up -- but my heart rate doesn't elevate much anymore unless I am jogging. Guess I'll have to start getting back to that on the treadmill. It is too damn cold to even think about taking it outside.
It has only been a few weeks, but I'm starting to restore some of my fitness level and seeing a bit of toning. My muscles sure feel sore. Must be patient for the results to kick in (not my strong suit).
