Showing promise

Posted by Trixter on July 15, 2008

Today was Fitness Score day on the Precor treadmill, and it surprised me:

  • Fitness Score: 30 (Change: +6, Cumulative change: +6, Medium fitness starts at 35)
  • Weight: 238 lbs (Change: 0, Cumulative change: 0)
  • Body Fat: 27% (Change: -1%, Cumulative change: -1%)

After only one week of walking on the treadmill at 3mph (medium walking speed) on the “hills” setting (incline raises and lowers) for an average of 25 minutes a day, already I see great improvement.  Not to my weight — I’m not completely concerned about that — but my fitness score shot way up and I lost a percentage of my weight in body fat.

I don’t want to get too optimistic yet, though.  According to the treadmill, I still technically died a few days ago.
