ROM By-The-Numbers: July 17

I feel like I’m finally hitting my range-of-motion stride again. Lower-body workouts remain exhausting and leave me out of breath; I drink a glass of chlorophyll-oxygenated water afterward. (I don’t think that this is a ‘normal’ response to the ROM; in the past couple of years, it seems that I’ve developed a fierce allergic reaction to North Carolina pollen. At its worst, I have difficulty breathing in general.) But I feel a better overall sense of well-being, like my body is finally coming into its own. Here are my bodyfat stats this week:

  • Overall weight: 259
  • Bodyfat: 31.9%
  • Muscle: 30.9%
  • Visceral: 12

Isn’t it interesting how ‘weight’ – such a general term – can be unmoved, but things like fat and muscle can reverse themselves? It’s these small, gradual indicators that are the most encouraging – they are signs of lasting change.

For the whole (health) enchilada, go here!

    I have to admit so far so good when it comes to the Rom. You look in better shape but I ask you this how is your cardiovascular conditioning going? Can you run any faster without taking a breath? I am curious cause I have been toying with the idea about purchasing a ROM for a long time

    It certainly is. It’s also what’s frustrating for the rest of us who only have the scales to go on!

    Of course, it’s also a great excuse. “Oh, look – I must have gained even more muscle this week!” 😀
