Report Card Time!!!

Okay, not really. But it was fitness assessment night.

I was sooo stressed. Oh my goodness. I felt absolutely retarded, but the harder I tried to calm down, the more stressed I got.

But.... the results are in....

Okay, so I'm not going to win any marathons anytime soon; not that I really expected to, but still.

So, the results of my four week assessment!

When I started I weighed 176 lbs.
Today I weigh 171 lbs.

My body fat was approximately 32.7% (this is very bad, as it puts me in one of the danger zones - women shouldn't be over 30% body fat)
Today it was approximately 29.8% (still not ideal, but a much better number)

Cardio function, via the bike test:
When I started, my heart rate @ level 7 was 161 bpm (I think I scared Shawn a little that day)
Today, my heart rate @ level 10 was 144 bpm (you want this)

Overall, I've lost over 6 inches off my measurements, including over 2" from my bust, which puts me under a 40" bust for the first time since I was like, twelve!

I have lost seven pounds of fat and gained two pounds of muscle mass. According to Shawn, most people only gain muscle at a rate of 1/4 lb per week, so my gain is really quite impressive.

I wish I had more people to share this success with, but as we all know, that's not the case. So, all you great people out in blogworld will get to share in my success with me!

Congratulations! It's good that you're not focusing on the weight loss itself -- far too often people focus only on that and then get discouraged far too easily.

Keep on going!
