The BLC Fitness Test

Sunday, May 04, 2014

Today I took the Fitness Test
Its very plain to see
That fit I am not very much
But that's not what's to be

I crunched, I stepped, I walked, I pushed
The numbers were not good
But this is only week number one
I did the best I could

What will I do to up my game?
I'll track, I'll count, and sweat it out
And check with me twelve weeks from now
I'll be smaller, stronger, happier...no doubt!

I still do not camp but...

Sunday, April 27, 2014

... put me in an RV with an indoor shower; queen-sized bed (with a pillow top mattress); cable tv to watch the hockey playoffs; indoor bathroom with a shower and plenty of hot water; birdies singing outside my window instead of an alarm clock; beautiful mountains to hike nearby; and fresh mountain air to breathe... And we'll talk about it. It was a good weekend. emoticon

    No way Cheri! Camping is a huge Tent that you can stand up in with front screen porch. Outside cooking eggs and bacon on the open fire with the smell of coffee brewing off to the side. Although a hot shower at the campsite is very helpful. Oh yeah I love camping!

    see it wasn't so bad! I've done tent and camper pop up camping... it was a cheap vacation when raising 4 boys who loved being outside. they would sleep outside all summer in the camper, i'd have to wake them up for school, during the first month before it got to cold to sleep outside.

    That would be my idea of a good time, lol. You should check out 'glamping'--it's kind of a ritzy, hotel feel to your tent w/all the amenities of home.

I do not camp

Friday, April 25, 2014

I do not sleep on the ground. I do not use the woods for private matters. I require a daily hot shower, cell phone service and wifi, and alone time sometime during the day. This should prove to be an interesting weekend. Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. We shall see. emoticon

    And this is why we started with a tent, moved to a popup, then a tow behind and now a motor home. I just LOVE camping now!!

Good bye loved one

Friday, April 04, 2014

You've always been there for me. Dependable, loyal, my go-to when I needed a quick decision. Through thick and thick, I always knew where to find you. Right there in the front of the closet. Waiting to be called upon, ready. But now, dear friend we must part ways. I know, I know, I've said it before but now, well, it's time. The bag is open, waiting for your arrival, ready to take you to someone else who will appreciate your softness, your comfort, your size. I could keep you, put you on and remember the days when you were the best I had, but I'm ready to move on...to something with a brighter color, more form fitting now that I have a form to fit, more flattering. Black used to work, after all black gave me the illusion of being smaller, right? Is that why I looked like I was always ready for a funeral? But I digress. So goodbye. Farewell. emoticon

    That is great! Being a guy, I don't know that I will change much from my blacks and navy blues, but maybe I will go wild and go khaki! No I know what you mean. I just bought a shirt with horizontal stripes, another nono for heavy folks, but I thought I was ready for that!

And moving forward...

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Baby steps move you in the right direction, just slowly. I saw a sign today that's also true about moving ahead, "a kick in the pants moves you forward". Yup. Just what's necessary sometimes. Feel free to "encourage" me that way if I need it! emoticon

    Staying in our comfort zone means we won't change. If a kick in the pants is what you need to get out of it, well, let me just be the first to say, I'm sure someone else will do it. I'm too comfy in my socks here on my couch. emoticon
