Well, I've been working out fairly regularly and trying to follow the spark nutrition tracker as often as possible. The scale is moving very slowly down and I haven't been on the scale in a couple weeks.
It's been cold and rainy this spring, some days it feels like the warmer weather is never going to come then we get one nice warm spring day only to be slammed back down into the 40's. We had hoped to have stopped using the wood stove by now but alas no deal.
Today I got to the gym for the first time since last Wednesday. I ran on the treadmill and for the first time in a long time ran a whole mile without stopping. I ran it in 12:30 min. I was pretty psyched. So I decided to help motivate me in my pursuit of healthy & fitness that I work towards passing the Army PT test as if I was still enlisted. I did notice that the weight standard has been raised since I was enlisted because I remember being age 30 at 5 feet and having to be 126 lbs max and now the max for that age & height is 135 lbs
Female age 42-46
12 push ups to pass (2 min) or 37 pushups to score max 100
32 sit ups to pass (2 min) or 72 sit ups to max
2 mile run 23:43 pass or 17:00 to max
max weight for 5' tall is 133 lbs
