Hmmm...Some changes and some still the same...pleased overall


Wednesday, February 20, 2013

For the first time since using this site I checked out the Fitness Tests article. I've never tracked this information and did two of the tests today. The Push-ups Test revealed that I did "excellent" based on my age (59) and the Crunches Test revealed that I am right in the middle of what is considered "good" and "excellent". I will take these results with a smile on my face...lol.

I went ahead and took body measurements and am still at 166 pounds along with measurements staying basically the same give or take 1/2 inch....but other ratios did improve. Per my age....Body Fat % is 25.56 (lean range) and Waist to Hip Ratio of 0.78 is considered healthy!

I am consistently exercising 5 days per week (strength @ 3 days, cardio @ 2 days) and currently challenging myself to drink more water daily than in past months. I do want to change up my exercise rotation for the month of March, too.

I am so thankful for friends at SparkPeople helping me along the way and for my family giving awesome support and encouragement. One day soon I will meet my goal of 150 pounds but it is all a work in progress to get there. I am happy with the way things have gone so far.
