Fitness Test for BLC-25

Monday, May 05, 2014

I've seen these fitness tests before but I never did them.

I thought it was a great idea to make it part of a challenge because I am always up for a challenge and this fitness test is just for ourselves.

It's purpose is to try and improve our own fitness. I don't think it matters how much anyone else can do in a minute or three. It matters how much we can do ourselves. This gives us a chance to improve us from whatever point we are at in our life.

If we have to modify things it's up to us.

Thanks BLC-25 for coming us with this great idea.

Goals for BLC 25

Friday, May 02, 2014

I joined WW's on March 13th and I love it. I have lost 9 pounds so far but beyond that I really enjoy listening at the meetings and hearing what others have to share. You really can find out lots of good hints of what to do and what not to do.
Our meeting this week was about Plateaus. I really know about them because I was on one for over a year.
After I started WW's I finally started losing weight and I was eating and not measuring. Well actually I was weighing some things because it has become a habit. I found out that I like a lot of the simply filling meals.

My goals for BLC 25 are

1. follow simply filling of WW's at least 3 days a week
2. do Strength exercises on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
3. measure the water I am drinking so I know I am getting enough
4. come back and check these goals every 2 weeks to make sure I am doing them

STRIKE- To get a Strike, you will have to knock down all 10 pins=20pts

Knock 9 Pins + Add 20 min walk to get a Spare

*Knock 7 Pins + Add 20 min walk + 10 modified push ups + 10 squats = Spare

If you "knock down" between 5 and 9 pins, you get that number of points (unless you earn the spare) 5-9 pts

If you knock down less than 5 pins and don't earn the spare, you get a G - NO POINTS for a G
