I've never been patient...pt test....

well, I decided to do my pt test early.. because once I decide to do something I can't wait..besides the fact that all this running is starting to affect my knees...and I won't have that.

so, without further ado...
situps 78 (100 percent yeah!)
pushups 36 (94 out of 100)
two mile run 19:36 (82 out of 100 which is passing eh)
total pt score 276....out of 300
So, I could pass the army pt test.
At age 37.
Not bad when about two years ago at this time I couldn't walk a half mile without being out of breath.
I couldn't do one situp (or one pushup..)
I sure couldn't button a pair of size 20's let alone a pair of size 8's.

I will still run occasionally, just not three times a week.
It does a number on your knees, barefoot or no.
My husband and I went to lowes tonight to price lumber for a garden fence.
We are very comfortable with each other.
We will be married 18 years on may 28th.
And I can honestly say he is my best friend.
He is the person who knows me best...it took a long time for us to get here...but we are finally here.
I am going to take a few days off blogging....I am going to be busy setting up my garden area, exercising, cookie boothing, and organizing my pantry....It's going to take some serious time....I have been reading everyone's bloggy post.
I just wanted to thank everyone for their unique contribution to my weight loss journey.
All the support has helped immensely....So,
Signing off for tonight (I may drop in for a fun comment or two...but that's it, really!)
Have a good one guys.
Love and hugs,
Chris

When the crap hits the fan, I wanna be on your team! :) Nice job on the PT test! Out of curiosity, how did you do this time compared to the first time? I hope you have some fun organizing, gardening, and selling cookies! Maybe you can fit in a little art time too! :)

Incidentally, my verification word is mental...I'm starting to think Google's trying to tell me something... ;)

you will be missed while you are away - esp. by me. I hope you come back often! Congrats on going back in time and erasing some years - you are younger now than you were 2 years ago - nice miracle you made for yourself!

Enjoy your next phase, you have earned it!

Congratulations on passing the PT test! Great job, woman!

Helen said...

So, what you are telling us is that patience is a virtue, it's just not one of yours?

Doesn't matter, you did great on that test!

Just the other day I was reflecting that finally my Mr. and I are comfortable with each other in a way I wondered if it would ever come. It feels nice.

That is awesome Chris. Congratulations on pasting the PT test and all that you've accomplished. Running can indeed do a number on the knees. Glad to hear you'll continue with it now and then.

Yay for the garden and the longevity of your marriage. Must be wonderful to be where you are at now... sharing such history with one person.

Sounds like you are going to have a great time. I can't wait for the weather to get a little better so I can get outside. Can't wait!!

Keep focused!
