I met my goals in BLC24 and now I've set new ones for BLC25. No reason I can't be as lean and strong as I was when I was 40, right?

It's the middle of field season, and I am happy to report that my strength and stamina are right where I need them to be. I'm not sure I'll meet my weight goal by July 23, but I'll be close.

Fitness Minutes: 12,006

My Goals:
For BLC 25:

1. Get to 142, which was my healthy weight in my early 40s.
2. Get rid of the belly fat. All of it. It's been hitching a ride for too long.
3. Run 5K in less than 30 minutes.
4. Be able to do 20 "real" pushups
5. Be able to do 5 unassisted chinups.

My Program:
Now that the weather is better, I'm running three times a week, and I am trying to keep with P90X 6 days a week. Plus random pushups, crunches, bike rides, hikes, gardening and other daily activities

Personal Information:
Biologist from Montana. Irreverent, cynical, left-liberal, secular humanist. My idea of a great day is lying in my tent during a summer thunderstorm reading on my Kindle beside the high mountain lake where I will catch dinner when the storm stops. Add a big plus to that day if, when I arrived at that lake after a long hot hike, I was all alone, and felt free to peel off all my clothes and dive in.

Other Information:
My favorite books this year (so far) are The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and The Cat's Table. Update: Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of All Things.

If I could do anything I wanted for a week straight, I'd fish. All day every day.

Thanks for the Power Flow suggestion. I have never heard of that. I just basically don't enjoy it. I did go to a "Go w/the Flow" yoga class once (yoga to live music) that was awesome. The couple that teaches it was out of Dayton and the Lululemon store brought them into town for a free class. I would definitely do it if all classes were like that. It was super hard but ironically very relaxing. I have attended several other styles and just don't seem to find one that clicks with me. I do know it helps in other areas.
