Happy 100th Post to Me!!


In honour of this hallmark, I've decided to post from an entirely new province. So I drove five hours to Bathurst and am currently sitting in a hotel on my beat-up old laptop posting this update!

Okay, no I'm here for a dog show. But it sounded better to say I did it for all of you.

It's also why I didn't post yesterday. After my training session yesterday and my then my drive, and then a massive fight to convince my computer to accept the hotel's wireless, I ran out of time. So, no fun facts this week :( . But, instead, you can all have my newest assessment results!

As of Friday, I am down another 7.5 pounds, bringing my total loss since working with Shawn to 12.5 pounds. More significantly, I am down 3.4% body fat, to 26.4%. That was absolutely amazing for me to hear.

My VO2 Max score (via the bike test) was rated at very good (up from below average). I significantly surpassed all of my previous assessment scores on the fitness tests (plank, wall sit, pushups, situps). It was the first time I've done "real"pushups for one of these assessments, and I actually did as many as I did from my knees last time.

All in all, a very good assessment. Shawn has again revamped our goals and feels it would be more realistic to aim for a weight of around 152-155 lbs, given yesterday's results and where I currently am, at 163.5 lbs. Honestly, not sure how I feel about that. The initial 150 was ten pounds heavier than I had ever thought I should be. But, I am honest in saying I'm probably not the best judge of what's ideal for me - I have a rather distorted view of my body. And the last 12lbs has made a HUGE difference in my physique. So, I'm going to trust in his judgment - it hasn't steered me wrong yet.

Anyhow, I am currently sitting in my hotel in Bathurst; planning to treat myself tonight to a long bath and some pampering and a movie. Already cheated a bit and let myself splurge with a piece of cheesecake. It was delicious. And now, I have to go let the dogs out, so I'll wish you all a good weekend.
