    Congrats for achieving your goal.

    I've been trying to reformulate my goals.. since my original goals in the thread were "show up to every class" lol. My 265 PT score needs bumping up by 5 points on the push-ups (something I am capable of) and maintaining my other two standards.

    I've been trying to find a way to formulate goals on my own to work on. I need something with structure, otherwise I'll never pull it off. So.. I'll try to come up with a plan for these new goals:

    1. At least a 270 on the PT test in January.
    2. Be able to do 50 push-ups. I don't mean the girly, regular push-ups I do right now. I mean the sort where the hands are next to the body, and a lot of triceps are involved.
    3. Gain upper body strength, and gain endurance on the lower body.

    ... That's all I've got for right now. I do have exciting news, I'll be the proud owner of a Wii fit soon, so you can bet that thing will somehow be incorporated into my workout routine.

    Also, there's a new gym in my area I think I might look into. Genesis Athletic Performance
    That gym looks expensive. However, if they live up to their word, I bet you'll get the workouts of your life. In my opinion, it's definitely worth looking into.

    Is there another class that you can take next semester?

    ^ I want to, but I think if I take a class it has to be continuing education (which I don't mind necessarily.) since I'm already having to petition for the classes I NEED, moreless getting the classes I want to take. I'll look into it, but they do have free classes they do at my college, so those might be incorporated.

    Measurements Then/Now:
    Weight: 146/136
    Resting Heart rate: 65/73
    Working heart rate: 98/76
    Sit ups: 55/51 in a minute (though my score is worse on this because I took a sit-up test in another class last night. I got 60 in that class.)
    Push ups: 30/41 in a minute
    Sit and Reach flexibility test: 30/31.5
    Body fat percentage: 25.1%/23.4%

    Body measurements in inches then/now:
    Calf: 14/15
    Thigh: 23/22
    Buttocks: 39/38
    Hips: 34/35
    Waist: 28/29
    Chest: 35/35
    Upper arm: 12/12

    Overall, not much change to my body's measurements, but lots of change to the way those measurements look, and my performance. I think the heart rate changes were the most interesting.

    Gah sorry I haven't posted.

    I'm having some pretty intense issues right now. I've been running, but not as much as I'd like. Long story.

    I'm hoping to pick back up soon. I've been doing some interval training, and I can definitely feel the effects haha.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    We did some kind of cardio pilates thing that was much more cardio than pilates.

    I don't know. It seems weird when parts that they don't mention are the parts that get sore. Makes you think you did them wrong...

    Completed 1 hour of my 1.5 hour Yoga routine. I waited too long to start it, and ran out of gas. Gotta work on the whole nutrition / exercise timing thing.

    Interval training is killer, isn't it? I hope things quiet down for you soon.

    Definite improvement, and it's not like you need major improvement to begin with, so that's excellent.

    The heart rate one is odd, though. I have to wonder if your resting heart rate was taken under the same circumstances.

    What it probably means is that you did movements you aren't accustomed to doing. More likely than not, this is a good thing!

    I think I found muscles where I didn't have them before.

    I am right on my way to becoming that sumo wrestler!

    I did a whole lot of exercise for work today. I did some shoulder and arm training too.

    I did enough for the week. Enough to get sore muscles.
