You And The War With The Weight Scale
The easiest way to evaluate your fitness level is to determine precisely how healthy you are in terms of your body, and this is done by testing your physical abilities by starting an exercise regimen. Before doing this, however, it is important that you understand how healthy and fit you are.
One of the worst things you can do is walk into a gym and take on some crazy regimen, thinking that sticking to it for a while will ensure that you walk out with big muscles and extremely low body fat with insane cuts, like the bodybuilders. That way of thinking couldn't be more wrong. Even the most famous bodybuilders or athletes start at some lower fitness level, depending on lifestyle and genetic gifts.
If it's just down to you and the war with the weight scale, you need to determine the severity of the shape you're in, no matter how bad. Being honest with yourself is the only way to begin this process of proper fitness. But always keep in mind that the number you see on the scale will never be more important than your overall health.
BP, Cholesterol, And Triglycerides
The numbers of these are significantly more important than anything you see on the scale. They provide insight into where you physically are. This also tells you where you need to head in first in terms of exercise.
Body Mass Index
Your BMI is a number that shows your body composition. It's basically an instant evaluation of your health and fitness. Determining this exact number should be a priority.
Write it down. Be sure to note what you'd like it to be. Look at it often.
