Once a year my gym offers members a full fitness evaluation. I scheduled my appointment probably six weeks ago and it was this morning.
The take measurements, weight, body fat percentage, fitness treadmill test and a basal metobolic rate.
I didn’t make it to WW today, but with a pair of light sweats and a t-shirt, I weighed in at exactly 160.0.
I am in the poor range. The reason? My blood pressure was high: 160 over 93 and my RESTING heart rate was 98! She almost didn’t want me to do treadmill test. And my waist to hip ratio is .92 – and anything over .85 is considered high risk. All my fat is in my belly. 🙁
Body fat percentage?
The good news?
I am in the “excellent” range for my cardio respiratory fitness! She wants me to check with my doctor to double check my blood pressure numbers and my heart rate.
She also did a base metabolic rate test. I sat with a mask on for 15 minutes. Your Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories you’d burn if you stayed in bed all day. My number? 2048! I think that is super high – what do you guys think? I am hoping Nicole and Aimee will chime in with their thoughts!
I’ll quickly show you my eats from yesterday – breakfast: 1/2 a jalapeno bagel with egg white and pineapple.
I went on a run at lunch even though the weather said this:
But it was bright and sunny! I got lost though! Tree trimmers blocked my normal path and I had to cut into a subdivision. I finally made my way out and when I got back to my desk I mapped my run and I ran 2.88 miles in 33 minutes. 😀
I didn’t bring a lunch so I went to Jimmy John’s and got the Vito as an unwich. When I got back to work I chopped it up and added red pepper and baby spinach. It was so good!
Then Tony made dinner . . . hooters shrimp! These are completely addicting.
He added sriracha to my buffalo sauce – so spicy delicious!
Have you guys ever had your fitness evaluated?
Alright – its already after 1:00 and I haven’t done any chores yet! Gotta get moving.
