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.
- Neck……18.2″ down by 0.2″
- Chest……50.2″ down by 1.4″
- Bicep Left……17.2″ up by 0.2″
- Bicep Right……17.5″ – Same as last month
- Forearm Left……13″ – Same as last month
- Forearm Right……13.3″ up by 0.1″
- Waist……49″ down by 1.2″ – How do I wear size 42″ trousers?
- Hips……47.3″ down by 1″
- Left Leg Top……25.2″ – Same as last month
- Right Leg Top……25.5″ up by 0.2″
- Left Calf……19.5″ up by 0.4″
- 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.

Not the worst days eating so I am fairly happy with that and as for the rest of the day well I am also happy with that. 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…
Stay out of the fridge.
