Had our quarterly fitness test at work today.
I am full of awesome!
My blood pressure and heart rate improved, and my measurements overall stayed about the same. I did 50 timed pushups, up from 46, and 51 timed situps, up from 48. So, whoo!
My dougheyness seems to be caused by a mere 4 extra pounds, which also makes me happy. Not cause I’m all excited about weight numbers, but because I was pleased that I was able to note that I was feeling doughy and lethargic at such a low additional weight number… and kick my butt back to the gym.
I like the idea that I’m a lot more aware of my body, how I feel, how it works, than I used to be. It used to be 15 lbs or more before I started going, “Gee, I haven’t been feeling so great lately and I don’t have any clothes to wear.”
