Fitness assessment results

So I had my fitness assessment today and here are the results:

Measurements:

Weight: 172.2 (I gained those pounds back I lost due to stress eating :( getting back on it though)

Thigh: 24 inches

 Chest: 46 inches

 Arm: 13 inches

 Waist: 39 inches

 Hips: 41 inches

  Calf: 16 inches

Total body fat: 34.6 but rounded up to 35 

Also did sit and reach test and I reached 14. Normal is 19 but because I'm a FAS baby my bones aren't really that flexible so I need to work on that. Also did bench presses. I did 40, norm was 17. I knew I would do good on that simply because I have more upper body strength then lower and the fact that my son weighs 50 pounds so carrying him from time to time is good,

Based on this I have about 24 pounds to lose to put me at about 135-148. My goal is 130 though. So the goal as of now is to work out 20 mins per session 3 times a week. I'll probably end up doing an hour though.

I have a lot of work to do but I know I can do it if I stay focused and motivated.

 According to him for females in my age range it is. What he did was have me lay back on a bench and then lift the bar up and down at breast level with no weights on it. I thought 17 was a low number as well but who knows?

I would definitely think so. Was it a 45# bar or smaller? I could easily do 45# a lot! If it was a female bar (30-35#) I could probably get more than 100 reps.

Great to have a fitness test done so you know where you are where you need to go. Write down your goals and keep track so you are focused.
