Update on the Torture....

Well, I'm home from my assessment. I had to sit in a "Bod Pod" in a bathing suit and a swim cap (hott, I tell ya) and have my body fat electronically measured. Then I had to do the old school "V-Sit" and test my flexibility. Then I had to walk a mile. Then I had to use several weight machines and test my strength.

You know what they concluded?

I'm overweight and out of shape.

Duh.

But I am very strong - my strength test landed in the "way above average" column.

Um, yay?

Now let's see if we can get the other columns looking better, shall we?

Except I'm not so sure my legs are gonna work tomorrow.

Well since you're so strong (I'm assuming it's your arms!) you can just walk on your hands tomorrow!

I watched the Biggest Loser Tonight and it got me motivated. :)

Oh, girl. I did the Bod Pod last year.

Humiliation.

Yay you! I'm rooting for you--and longing for the day that my back will let me get off my rear and into some kinda shape!

Skinny, rock-hard people are evil. Pure evil.

How are you feeling now?

Oh, ugh. That doesn't sound like fun! Although it's great that you're getting healthy.

Just wanted to stop by to thank you for your comment on my blog. Nice to "meet" someone who can relate!

Oh girl..I'm so glad your torture is over. You are going to feel so much better in about a week. Not that I would know or anything, it's just what I've heard, you see.

Hey let's use this as an experiment, K? Robyn goes to bust booty at the gym, Gayle sits on her lazy tail. Let's see how each of us feels at the end. Alright, I'm starting right now....

I'm afraid to ask what the Bod Pod is?! If it is something that tells 40 year old women, who used to have a hot bod, but don't anymore...well, I don't need it then.

I just walk up a flight of stairs and look at the size in my jeans. Probably the same. :-)

I bet they get well paid to come up with that analysis - huh? ;).

I keep seeing you around (sort of like I said to mocha w/linda) and thought I'd stop by...PLUS...you won Siesta Fiesta b'day giveaway thing AND we both live in Birmingham AND I rode on the plane with some of your friends to the Siesta Fiesta! So...HI!

Mocha with Linda said...

Well, look at you! Now that you're all assessed, you get to go splurge at dinner with your Siesta Fiesta wining birthday gift card. Happy Birthday month!
