    I fast for 17-18 hours and it is amazing how much energy I have during that time. Your body just becomes a machine during that time. I workout every day after work, but man I wish I could do morning, like you, i'm just far to tired and not all there.

    That's absolutely incredible! I workout 5-6 times a week and I would consider myself in really good shape and my resting heart rate is only 58-59 per my fitbit.

    I've seen my garmin show 31 bpm a couple times. Both were during long classroom sessions at work trainings in cold rooms. It was also very hard to stay awake lol. My average resting HR over the past year is 47bpm.

    I think a lot of it is really genetics. That's a great RHR.

    wow! I like to see mine stay low 50's but poor quality sleep and constant sickness is driving it up these days. Averaging low 60's this week which I think is the highest in my four years of tracking - minus maybe a couple weeks very early pregnancy (actually how I knew I was probably preg, HR started spiking and I wasn't getting sick). Which is really interesting to see the impact those things have on your body.

    That’s what mine is and I’m decidedly not in shape.

    Lost? Maintained?

    Overall, how are you feeling?

    I visited my hometown this weekend and lost control a bit with pre-Christmas food.

    Need to fast this week a bit.

    Hmmm, nobody posting here in two weeks. Does not bode well for the end of year assessments. o_O

    On my third cup of coffee this a.m. Sloth day, didn't get up till after 9 a.m. but I did stay up till 1:30ish reading. Probably should do SOME calories before I shovel the driveway and go knock snow of my columnar white pines (they be looking like weeping pines right now :(). Made a pot roast last night so maybe still loaded on potatoes and such yet today. Not feeling like I am out of fuel by any means.

    I've been too busy eating and drinking and not sleeping enough. I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Went to the gym and ran a couple miles on the track, if slugging out miles at 125% of what I used to do 30 years ago is still running. Hadn't been in since Dec 14 (sick and elbow tendentious blew-up bad after shoveling too much one day) and even without any holiday meals or parties slender me still gained a couple of pounds. Might have something to do with sitting around the house for two weeks eating chocolate and drinking wine. Could be a correlation. :rolleyes:
