Made it this morning! yep! was a little more than dragging becuase I just could not sleep last night. I think the Claritin D really had me going. Still have this mess but I am pushing through! :) This morning's cardio was a little sluggish..but I maintained above my range in my heart rate, stayed above my goal for my timing and 30 minutes later...well...I did it! It fells so good! :)
I did not mention yesterday that Adam and I talked about my Compare and Despair episode! :) Compare and Despair is something I was taught years ago when you judge someone's outsides by your insides...and it only brings about misery for you..and potentially others. I was on the eliptical and looked over at the person next to me who was doing twice the speed I was doing and got to thinking how much I sucked at this! I thought that I was really failing and I must be doing something wrong. I have had the thought when looking around at others doing exercises that looked a whole lot tougher than mine and they not looking more fit, yet looking fine..I asked Adam if I was doing enough? He was quick to remind me NOT to watch others. What they are doing might not be correct, but also, what they are doing, more importantly, may not be correct for me! He asked me if, when on the eliptical, did I have my heart rate at target? I said yes. Was I burning calories and getting the work out and showing improvement on my resistance? I said yes..then, that is waht I need to focus on! Not what others are doing!! Funny...that lesson is one that keeps being repeated for me! It was a great reminder and one that really put me back on track! Today, I am doing wonderfully and it is building to more and more things. In 14 days, I am already doing things that on day one, I could not do and then some!
Given this mess in my chest, I am going to work today as best I can and then take it easy..but I am here and it is another blessed day!
