Some Interesting Discoveries Today!
Saturday, January 15, 2011
So my goal today was to take measurements of my body and to take the four step fitness test. And after running everyone around town today, I finally got to my goal.
I learned that while my measurements are HUGE.. and I have alot of work ahead of , that I measured in the Low Health Risk range. I am pear shape, and this is the one thing I have done right... and it is genetic... you know what is going right for me??? It is my pear shape because I carry my fat in a way that LOWERS health risks for me. I carry my fat the BEST that can be done. I am a great FAT CARRIER!! I feel so good!! Yes there is some sarcasm, but truly I am VERY happy to be in the low health risk category!!
Then I took the fitness test and I learned that I am at the average fitness level for push ups, and at the EXCELLENT level for crunches (who'd a thunk!) and of course I am in the poor level (just 2 points from average) for aerobic fitness per the results of the 3 minute step up test. So I am not in a HUGE whole when it comes to getting myself back in shape. And this is encouraging and it inspired me- to stay positive!!
So all is not lost, I feel like I am not starting at the bottom... I can do this!!
