BLC week 1 fitness test

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

As I already knew, the fitness test confirmed I'm in terrible shape.

Crunches: 32
Push Ups (modified, standing): 15

And I didn't even do the 1 mile walk and the step test. I forgot until it was too late tonight (nice excuse, right? Not.)

Rather than focus on what my weakness are, why don't I talk about how awesome I've eaten the past week?

I started the whole30 exactly one week ago and the major change I've noticed so far is my energy level feels more stable throughout the day. This, though, only happens if I make sure to have a veggie with every meal. I can't just have eggs for breakfast....it has to be eggs and spinach, or a tomato or..... I'm so proud of myself for knowing this about me now. This kind of self-knowledge is exactly why I'm doing the whole30.

I also haven't had coffee since last wednesday (I miss it, but I'm ok not to have it) and have replaced it with tea. Unsweetened, of course! No artificial sweeteners, no cheese, no cookies....

So, while I am lagging on my fitness, it's not because I'm at home eating bonbons. I'm focusing on getting my nutrition right and having it become a habit. Fitness will come, but one step at a time.

    Those are good results. I started out with far worse 2 years ago. Keep up the ST and cardio and you will see good growth on your next check.

    That is great!! One habit at a time or it can get overwhelming. Once you feel like you have one change that is more of a habit, then move to the next things

    Have a great day!!
