Today in my P.E. class we had to do a pre-fitness test. We had to sit and reach to see how far we could reach, I only got to #11 on the scale thing, and the lowest number on there is 10. I attribute most of that to my stomach though. As I get thinner, I will be able to reach farther. According to their scale, I am at 269 lbs., but I am not going to worry about that because I should only pay attention to the numbers on one scale and be consistent with that. I was probably two lbs heaverier when I started according to their scale too. We also had to run/walk a mile, do as many curl ups as we could in 60 seconds, and do as many push up as we could in 60 seconds. I managed 49 curl ups, 13 push ups, and I walked/jogged the mile in 18.17 minutes. I was the last person to finish my mile in class, but I don't feel bad about that. I really pushed myself and tried to jog in parts, and I kept a good pace the entire time. I know the limits of my body right now, and I am not gonna try to do more than I am capable of. I'm proud of myself for the 49 curl ups and 13 push ups. I have carpal tunnel in both my wrists, so being able to do even 13 push ups is pretty good for me. I can barely lift pots and pans usually. I know I am gonna be hurting tomorrow though, but it's a good pain.
