There I sit, .3 under the rest of North America
Well, in my endless pursuit of being able to sustain a decent run for parkour, I decided to attempt for the 5,234th time to get into shape. Thanks to my friend Alayne, I've got an exercise program going that I'll hopefully be able to adhere to. Now here's the thing, to monitor progress, of course the BMI plays into effect.
For those of you who have never measured your BMI, may I recommend you do so. You just may be surprised where you lie. See, I thought I was somewhere in the average category, not exaclty healthy, but not exactly terrible either. Turns out, I'm sitting only .3 under the obese category! I'm not scared, or sad or anything - but it's just surprising to be in that category. Guess it's a good thing I'm going on an exercise program.
Anyway, the link that Alayne gave me is here http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/, and again, I recommend if you haven't done it, you should definitely check out your body mass index. You might be surprised. Thanks for reading.
