Oops - I boofed
My last two posts got posted yesterday because I did not notice I had the same date on them both - bummer!! No aerobics today due to bad weather - schools are closed; roads are bad. I just started back to aerobics this past Wednesday and am still sore. I really did better than I thought I would. About half way through class on Wednesday I thought my shoes needed to be tied because they felt loose. I had tied a double knot so was wondering how that could be - turns out the fluid had worked out of my feet and ankles so my shoes were looser. My blood pressure is down somewhat too. I think we probably all know that muscle tissue is more metabolically active than fat tissue. I think a pound of muscle requires 35 calories a day just to maintain itself and a pound of fat requires something below 5 calories per day - hence the encouragement to build muscle. The more muscle we have the more calories we burn just sitting still. Doesn't that sound great!!
