I passed my military fitness test on Saturday!!!
Waist measurement: 32 in. :]
1 1/2 mile run: 14:33 - my goal was to keep it under 15 mins :]
42 push ups in one minute - that's the max
51 sit ups in one minute - that'ts the max
So, I passed, I passed, I passed!!! Lol. Come July though we will have new fitness standards and its a little more tough. Plus, instead of just testing once a year, we will be testing twice a year so now I really can't slack off with the exercising.
I was looking back at my old fitness scores and I saw that one of my run times was 12:52! Now this was when I had to workout. There was no other option lol. But it seems so unreal that I actually have had a run time like that. So. I'm hoping that one day I will be able to run under 13 again!
Hope everyone has a great week :]

So, within the past two weeks my mother has complimented on me twice on my weight loss. Now, this may not seem like a big deal but this is a HUGE deal when it is coming from my mother. I love my mother but she likes to be a negative Nancy and always wants to point out my negatives. And well, when I put on weight she made sure I knew she thought I was fat. So, when my mom said, "You losing weight? It looks like it." My mouth about dropped to the floor because before when I got to my 10 lb mark and told her she was like, "Pssshhhh, yea right." So to hear my mom say it looked like I lost weight, made my day. Because if she notices then I really must be losing weight. lol.
I am now 150. I am so close to 140ville. I remember my first goal was to get to 145 lbs. I can't believe I'm actually 5 lbs away from that! I CAN DO IT, I CAN DO IT!!!
I've been slacking on going to my Zumba classes. I was really excited to go last night but I had been feeling funny all day. I keep getting these sharp pains in my upper abdomen. It's not excruciating pain to where I can't handle it, it just makes me very uncomfortable. I get sick to my stomach a lot but nothing ever comes up, thank goodness! I've had these symptoms before but they were actually worse where I was actually in a lot of pain and was vomitting. I had my gallbladder checked out and it was fine. So, I have no idea what is wrong with me. My body is just a big ol' mystery. lol.
I'm so excited to be back on SP and get back in to this. I have my military fitness test this weekend, unless it rains. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Well, hello my long lost spark lovers! It has been way too long. I have one day of class left and then I can get my butt back into gear. I am 3 pounds away from being in 140ville. I can not wait to get there. But once I get there I gotta make myself keep going. Gotta keep taking it 5 pounds at a time. I'll have 20 more pounds to go all together. I GOTTA DO IT, I GOTTA DO IT!!!!!
My bestie has now got me addicted to Zumba. I absolutely love it! It's just sooo much fun! I'm excited that I will be able to go to more classes with her when I am done with school. I've missed my workout bestie :]
One thing I need to start doing more of is strength training. It's hard to get to the gym cause I have to find a baby sitter. Does anyone know of some good strength training circuits to do?
Well, hopefully everyone has been doing fantabulous!!! See yall soon :]
