once upon a time I RPed on aol in the Red Dragon Inn (RDI). this was like, almost 20 years ago but I digress. anyway, I distinctly remember this really poor typist who was RPing what I’m guessing was some kind of Scottish highlander, and he was flirting with some random bar wench and said
dunnae grab my but woman
which was written exactly as above.
I’m glad that my brain doesn’t remember helpful shit like calculus but does remember “dunnae grab my but woman.”
I went today to get my bodyfat tested. I did this the most accurate way, which is hydrostatic testing. Basically they have this big bathtub with a scale cage thing in it, and you get in face first and hold on to the cage. Then you take a big breath, dunk yourself totally underwater, and then you exhale out alllllllllll the air in your lungs while you’re underwater, which is a lot harder than it sounds. Then you stay underwater until the tech knocks on the side of the tub. Apparently I did a pretty good job in that I only had to do one practice, then three actual tests (which were averaged).
Um. My BF% is higher than I had thought, since I have a handheld thing that consistently has had me, lately, at around 24.5%. The test today put me at around 27% BF at 153lbs. Supposedly this is “average” but I would prefer to be more in the “good” range, which with how much I work out, one would think I could hit. I’ve done it before.
Stuff this means:
My BF% goal is 18-20%. 22% is “ideal.” At 20% BF, it’d be at like 140lbs, which means that although my bf has gone up, I’ve also gained about ten pounds of muscle in the last year and a half. Interesting.
My estimated calorie goals from online crap have been way off, which may explain a couple things.
Lady said I need to be getting more sleep, whoops.
I’m getting my resting metabolic rate tested in a couple of weeks to see if my metabolism is normal, if it’s abnormally low, or if it’s high, since that will really help to shed some light on what’s going on.
