Assessment Digest

The trainer’s computer is down, so I’m not able to give a breakdown on improvement, but the short version for my one year anniversary assessment is….

81 lbs lost since June12, 2007, total lost 91 lbs!
50 inces lost since June 12, 2007
current resting heart rate: 66 bpm (last year: 80)
3-minute step test heart rate: 89 bpm (last year: 110)
bench press: 95 lbs (I tried 100 twice and just couldn’t do it)
push-ups: 30 (a year ago I did 5 “elbow bends”, not one single proper pushup)

I’m a little pleased. :)

Quickly thanking the academy:
A big thanks to my friends (Morgan, Moon, Marcy, Sonal and my workteam for encouraement, motivation, and handholding.

Unending gratitude to the trainers at Fitness Together for their assistance. I never expected getting fit to be so much fun!

A huge thank you to all of YOU for your constant and unconditional support. Going through this with people who KNOW what this struggle entails has made all the difference in the world. I thank you for sharing your journeys with me and for allowing me to share my progress with you!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Now, I’m off to do yard work!
