|I'm so disgusted with myself
||[Feb. 1st, 2006|02:39 pm]
Ok, so monday morning they weighed us so we could take the APFT (army physical fitness test) on tuesday. Well, I weighed in at 143... the limit for my height and age is 133. 10 fucking pounds over. So I had to wait in a seperate line for fat people and get taped, which is when they measure your neck, forearm, wrist, and hips and plug it into an equation to see if you fall into the acceptable range of body fat even if you are overweight. I came in at 29.6% and I'm allowed up to 32%. So I didn't get flagged, but I still felt horrible. I cried as soon as I got back to the barracks and threw away the breakfast they'd given me since I didn't have time for chow. Then on tuesday I did 37 push-ups (I needed 19 to pass), maxed out my run time at 15:16 for the two mile, and did 43 situps (sigh, I needed 53 to pass.) I was so angry at myself. So now I have to retake the test in two weeks, but they're not going to penalize us since it was just a diagnostic test. So today I've had cappucino (200), 1 jelly ring candy thing (20), 6 goldfish pretzels (30), and hot chocolate (150). I'm at 500 c right now and all I'm gonna have for dinner (if they make us go) is a naked salad. I have a pear in my room if I get to thinking I need to eat the junk food that's there. Hopefully, I can go to the gym after we're released and run for a few miles, then come back and work on my situps and jump rope in my room.
If anyone has any good workout DVDs to suggest that would be great. I have a pilates one and the Tae Bo boot camp (which is just funny having just come from boot camp a few months ago). If anyone could suggest a good yoga dvd too that would be awesome. Also, low cal protein options... I eat at a cafetria style place, so I don't really know how to get meat, etc that isn't fried to death or greasy as hell. Most of the time I just eat soup and salad and fruit.
Thanks for the help, ladies! Good luck!
