Metabolic Assessment

Thursday, December 22, 2016

Hello again, Sparklers! Hope you are staying healthy and happy through the final stretch in the holidays!

Just a quick update. I'm doing great. Still hanging in there and maintaining my weight. My goal is just to maintain. I won't worry about active weight loss until after the New Year. I joined a new gym, and I am swinging by there on my way home from work. Exercise is a great way to end the day, and it helps me unwind.

One of the products they sell at this gym is a metabolic assessment. I paid for a resting metabolic assessment, and an active metabolic assessment. The resting metabolic assessment will tell me what my *real* RMR is, not estimated based on online calculators. Similarly, the active metabolic assessment will tell me what my real heart rate max is, and the optimal cardio zone levels I should be working out in, and for how long.

I'm excited about these tests. I am doing the active metabolic assessment today. I'll report back on my results and what I learn!

    Knowing that would be very helpful in setting up a plan.

    Well that will be interesting to see.

    I'm glad to hear that things are going well. Good for you for ending your work day with a work out - I was always just too tired, but now that you said that it probably would have been a good stress reliever. Years ago I did take Dance classes after work - loved that!

    Baking cookies today for our holiday celebration - only 2 kinds. I will enjoy one or two but I'm not much of a cookie eater which is helpful. I have also decided that if I maintain my weight over the holidays (which includes my birthday and New Years) then I can work harder starting in January

    Have a good day!

    Meant to comment on the metabolic assessment. I did one at the gym I go to. It was not only an eye opener but a wake up call to get serious. Good luck with your assessment!

    I just got started "again" yesterday. Need to lose 35 lbs. Trying to get through the holidays without gaining.
