Higher Or Lower…. It’s Vitals Time Again

A VERY short post this fine day I am afraid as I was burning that midnight oil a touch too readily yesterday and appear to have over egged my proverbial pudding.

So Sunday comes around again and I shall be endeavouring to undertake yet another walk where I cover a great deal of ground and get the much needed miles under my belt for my Charity Walk practise. I am not as yet completely sure where I shall walk but I hope wherever it is, it is dry and bright unlike lasts weeks very soggy day out.

But before I head for the hills, it is once again that time of the month where I must bare all to the world and so as promised yesterday when I told you I had been to the gym on Friday and had my vital statistics measured here they are now posted for your amusement…. 😉

The measurements are taken with un-flexed muscles.

  1. Neck……18.2″ down by 0.2″
  2. Chest……50.2″ down by 1.4″
  3. Bicep Left……17.2″ up by 0.2″
  4. Bicep Right……17.5″ – Same as last month
  5. Forearm Left……13″ – Same as last month
  6. Forearm Right……13.3″ up by 0.1″
  7. Waist……49″ down by 1.2″ – How do I wear size 42″ trousers?
  8. Hips……47.3″ down by 1″
  9. Left Leg Top……25.2″ – Same as last month
  10. Right Leg Top……25.5″ up by 0.2″
  11. Left Calf……19.5″ up by 0.4″
  12. Right Calf……19.8″ down by 0.5″

Peak Flow Rate (the rate at which you can expel air from your lungs) was measured and found that it had changed to 550l/m and 575l/m and 600l/m on each of the two tests Litres/Minute so it now sits at an average of 587.5 l/m. We also measured my Resting Heart Rate and found it 79 BPM which is an increase of 9 BPM which probably has something to do with the fact that I went to the pub through the week.

Blood pressure has pretty much stayed the same at 121/79 so these are all great numbers.

The weight is registered now on the gym scales at 119 on the button so just about 18.7 stone after a loss of 3.6 Kg’s.

After all measurements were logged we could see clear progress so changing my regime to three days a week and upping the levels in the cardio training has obviously continued to show results. So this proves that with a body measurement shrinkage and the weight loss a healthy diet and regular exercise are definitely good for you staying healthy, in shape and happy.

Although I was very busy yesterday, there was no definable actions of “appage” so no screenshots etc for your delight, oh how I can hear the miniature violins play…… Yesterday I did something amazing and VERY much out of my comfort zone so I shall report that very soon so watch this space…

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.
