I don’t know how the people who do the fitness Insanity infomercials can get away with their claims of 60 days to a ripped body. I’m working out like a fiend, eating well and am far from ripped.
I lost 4 pounds this month and my BMI is down to 20%. My other metrics of heart rate and muscle mass put me in the athlete range now. Honestly? I feel it. Not like a great athlete, but I feel strong. My resting heart rate is about 55 beats per minute, down from over 90 just a few months ago. It’s funny that TW mentioned in the comments that my race number was my age — it is my physical age according to the metrics taken today. Not bad for someone who was sofa-loafing a year ago.
I still look in the mirror and hate the way my thighs touch at the top. I still carry more weight on my hips than I want. But I’m trying to focus on my health rather than my appearance.
No races this week. I did sign up for the Disney half marathon in November. Plus I’m going to an info session for the Team in Training program next week. Busy, busy.
