Body Age

Normally I meet with my trainer on Friday mornings but she’s sick today so we rescheduled for tomorrow. I’ve been working with her for three months now – a quarter year. And I’ve lost a whopping ten pounds.

Slow and steady wins the race, they say. Well, it’s gonna be a loooonnnnggg race.

When I first started with her, she gave me a full evaluation, measuring everything: Weight (of course); Inches; Body Fat Index (eeek!); Blood Pressure; Cardio-vascular capacity; Strength; and Flexibility. In the end, after all this information was fed into the BodyMaster5000 (my own name for the little PC in the eval room) we found that my “body age” was seven years older than my actual chronological age.

I don’t like the idea that my body is seven years older than me.

Luckily, according to the BodyMaster5000, it’s pretty easy to lower this number. I’m curious to see where I’m at now compared to then. I really have been working my ass off (literally!!!) so I’m hoping for some good results.

Wish me luck!

Spam is not a good think when you're trying to lose weight and impress the BodyMaster5000. Too fattening, but pretty good on crackers with some Merck's.
