    Great goals! Love that you are feeling stronger. Leaner and stronger is even better than just leaner right!?! emoticon

Fitness Test Results

Friday, May 02, 2014

As part of our first weekend challenge for BLC25 we had to complete a 4-part fitness test to establish our starting point for this round. These were my results & how they compare to my age range (according to Spark):

Pushups, modified: 23 in one min (average)
Crunches: 14 in one min (needs work)
Pulse after 3 min of step-ups: 105 (average)
One mile walk or run: 8:44 (excellent)

Im happy with the last two tests, but I definitely need to build my core & upper body strength.

BLC - Week Two Goals

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sadly at weigh-in today my number was the same as last week. I worked hard & really cut back on my eating, but there were some slip-ups. I accomplished all of last week's goals, except not to have sweets. So, this week's goals are going to be:

get 8 glasses of water each day (same as week one)
get 5 hours of fitness time: walking, running, ST, step workout
get in 30 minutes of stretching twice this week
eat 5 servings of freggies/day (pushing myself here)
track every bite

A lot of times, my loss would show up as a wonderful one the next week! Maybe yours will, also!
