A Pleasant Fitness Surprise

Heavy but FitI re-joined my favorite gym last week and went for a fitness evaluation.  Much to my surprise, I’m not in as bad shape as I thought. My biggest challenge is increasing my flexibility.  My BMI was good, my body weight distribution ratio was good, my bicep strength was excellent (from lifting heavy groceries and laundry baskets) and according to the evaluation, my overall fitness level is considered “fit.”

In addition to being “fit” except for my below average flexibility, the evaluation print out, said my body weight is “ideal.”  The evaluation actually said “Felicia, your body fat score is in the ‘Ideal’ category. No weight loss is recommended unless you want to change your appearance or improve athletic performance.”

Well, yes, I do want to change my appearance and athletic performance. So the journey begins…
