Health Progress

weather: sunny
outside: 13°C
mood: satisfied
I noticed that my heart rate has become quite sane this last workout. I'm glad the treadmill panel has stopped flashing nasty messages at me.

The muscles don't ache nearly as much in the days after workouts anymore. I'm still a bit achy the day after, but no killer owwies going up and down stairs like before. And today, two days after, I feel nothing at all. The hottub soak afterwards must be helping too.

I've gained weight, which is always a happy thing for me. My Reverse Weight Watchers works really well, but I knew it would. I had a scary little weight drop earlier this year. I've gained some back since. Not a lot, just holding steady with a slight climb for now. But my pants have still loosened up a little, so I must be losing fat and gaining muscle. That's just fantabu-wondrous.

I'm still lighter than my usual target weight, but I actually feel okay. Probably because my old target was a higher fat ratio. I don't know where my new ideal weight will land yet. I'm theorizing that it will be more (muscle > fat), although, if I feel okay now, then if I'm the same weight as my old target but with more muscle, less fat, that might be fine too.

I'll just continue the little exercising spats, watch how I feel and what my body does.

I thought the 24-30 points for Weight Watchers was for EACH meal, not for the whole day.

Re:
Whoa! Um, no... =) 1 WW point is about 58 calories. That's one HELLA meal.

A Quiznos Bread Bowl (which is the single highest point value I've come across) is about 20 points by itself. And word on the street is to stay far far away from bread bowls =)

OH, I love that feeling, when exercise is even just a *little* easier than the last time.

Yeah, but then that means that eventually, you'll have to *gasp* do _more_ =O =)

more muscle, less fat is the good way to go. that extra muscle will be better protection against ostereoporsis 20 years from now.

Yeah, exactly. I'm doing a bit of ab work. I've been hearing that strong abs are good for your back. I'll just be happy to get rid of the beer gut. =P
