Fitness Tuesday/ posted in: Fitness
The workout for today was 4 rounds of:
That night I was demonstrating to the husband what my workout was and mimed a push up in the air. My chest screamed and so did I.
Ran 1.5 miles since I’m officially in training now. I have a 5K in Vegas in February and the Zombie Run in August. Nothing like zombies to motivate a person. I was a little faster this time but it was still way too slow.
I went and got my body fat tested. What a fun way to start your morning.
I got to sit in an egg. Like Mork from Ork.
I ended up with 38.5% body fat. I was horrified. I’ve lost a lot of weight recently so I can’t imagine what it was previously. About 10 minutes later I realized that I was reading the analysis from the man’s side of the chart so I was no longer in the morbidly obese category. For a woman I was just overweight. I felt very proud then. I know I’m overweight. I was shocked at being so obese. Women should be under 30% to be in the good category while men over 30% are obese. I can do that.
It also told me that my lean mass (if I was at 0% body fat) was 120 lbs. Guess I’ll never be a super model. That’s still 25 lbs more than my workout partner.
I can get measured again in 90 days so we’ll see if I can up the lean mass and decrease the fat.
