For a WIO challenge, I am to write a blog about someone or something who inspires me. Honestly, I have three someones. God is my Christian inspiration, my Dad was my personal inspiration and Mrs. Ford was my teacher/work inspiration.
Being a Christian definitely has its ups and downs but through it all I know that I can count on my Heavenly Father to be there. He has made sure to put in place in my life several people who are detrimental in keeping me grounded and maintaining my sanity. No matter what my circumstances are, I can talk with Him and immediately feel better. In looking at His Word, I can find any answers that I need.
My Dad has always been my rock through my teenage years and even through my marriage woes. I could always talk with him and he would never judge me. He would just listen, reiterate what I was saying, pray with me and just be there. I think maybe that's why I wanted to become and became a counselor because I had such a perfect example of one. It's been hard these past 2 1/2 years without him but I hope that he's able to see the fruits of his labor in me.
In my teaching/career, I would have to talk about my favorite teacher Mrs. Ford. She was my fourth grade teacher and really, truly was the one teacher who inspired me to become a teacher. Her gentle mannerisms, calm voice and non-judgmental actions ensured that her students would be successful. She loved all of her students just like they were her own. The best part of it all was having her live three doors down from my house.
Three inspirations....one life changed. Actually, I'm still doing plenty of changing because of these three! Guess that's why they are my inspirations.

So I'm to blog about what I will do if I get off track. Yikes is all I can say. In fact, I'm really struggling this round of BLC. Last round, I lost 13 pounds but this round I'm gaining. I keep thinking it's because I'm doing quite a bit more in working out but two weeks in a row of gaining is NOT okay with me.
Regardless, here is my plan on getting back on track....
1) Realize that everyone makes mistakes and keep moving on!
2) Track my food. No matter what I eat, it will be tracked.
3) Continue drinking my water. I think that is really my saving grace.
4) Get rid of the things in my house that are my downfall. Don't keep them around!
5) Check in often with my Ninja family. Support is absolutely necessary!!!

So for the BLC25, we are to do a fitness test. There's no better place to put the information than in a blog. Plus I get 50 extra points!
Push Ups - 34
Crunches - 36
1 mile walk - 15.38
3 minute step - 104
I didn't realize that I could do these so well and be in such a good range.
For the crunches, I'm in the "good" range. Not too far off from the "excellent" range. Maybe when i get to the end of the round, I'll be here.
For the push ups, I'm in the "good" range. One more would have put me in the "excellent" range. Yep, you guess it! I'm going for it by the end!!!
For the 1 mile walk, I'm in the "average" range. So very close to the "good" range. Planning on being in the "excellent" range at the end of this round.
For the 3 minute step test, I counted my pulse as 104 which is "above average".
Overall, I know that I can be better in week 6 and week 12. At least that's what I'm aiming for.
