Confession... I do not know all of mine. I actually need to know a few more. But theses are the ones I think you should know.
Current Weight: 227
Goal Weight: 150
I have been looking online for resources for what is a healthy weight range for me. I found Dr. Halls WebSite. I like it because it lets you put in your weight, height, etc and gives you a few different charts so you can set realistic goal weights. My favorite chart/weight was the Peoples Choice Ideal Weight. It gave me weight of 162. I know if I get to 162 I would be super cute. Thats for sure.
Healthy Weight Range: 110-140
Definition: Target heart rate (THR), or training heart rate, is a desired range of heart rate reached during aerobic exercise at which the heart is being exercised but not overworked. This theoretical range varies from person to person and is based on one's fitness level, age and physical condition. The THR can be calculated by using a range of 50-85% intensity.Check out this chart I found HERE.
There are several categories of blood pressure, including:
- Normal: Less than 120/80
- Prehypertension: 120-139/80-89
- Stage 1 high blood pressure: 140-159/90-99
- Stage 2 high blood pressure: 160 and above/100 and above
People whose blood pressure is above the normal range should consult their doctor about methods for lowering it.
