BLC 25 FITNESS TEST

Monday, May 05, 2014

I did a fitness test for the BLC wide challenge this week that we will be repeating in weeks six and twelve (I believe) - and DANG! were these results eye opening for me! I know I haven't been as active since my digestive problems as I was before, but I was not expecting such a horrible decline!

Pushups - I eeked out 4 in one minute. This one did not bother me at all because I haven't been able to do a floor push up since I fractured my elbow's on the skating rink surface when I was 19 years old.

Crunches - I did 30. I was surprised by this. I used to be able to do more than this, and not be so winded or have to strain so much to do them.

1 Mile Walk - It took me 21:33 minutes. SMH.

3 Minute Step - My pulse after stepping up and down continually on a 12" high step for three minutes was 92. That really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm really looking forward to re-testing in a few weeks to see if I can change these numbers. I BETTER change these numbers!!!!

Brent

Friday, May 01, 2009


I found myself today
Oh, I found myself and ran away
But something pulled me back
A voice of reason I forgot I had
All I know is you're not here to say
What you always used to say
But it's written in the sky tonight

So I won't give up
No, I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Brent is watching over me

I've seen that ray of light
And it's shining on my destiny
Shining all the time
And I won't be afraid
To follow everywhere it's taking me
All I know is yesterday is gone
And right now I belong
To this moment, to my dreams

So I won't give up
No, I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Brent is watching over me

It doesn't matter what people say
And it doesn't matter how long it takes
Believe in yourself And you'll fly high
It only matters how true you are
Be true to yourself and follow your heart

So I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
That I won't give up
No I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong
Even when it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
That Brent is watching over
Brent is watching over
Brent is watching over me
(Yeah yeah, oh oh)
Brent is watching over me

MAKE-UP DAYS

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

This blog thing is pretty cool!

This is from an email I received that I wanted to share in case there is anyone else out there like me who thinks "I'm fat and ugly and makeup won't make a difference so just forget it!". This is what our favorite celebrities look like before they undergo their hours of professional makeup!














I don't know about you, but I sure do feel better! emoticon

Venting...please ignore...

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

I have been on this weightloss journey seriously since the beginning of July 2008 (at least that's when I signed up on Spark). I weigh about fifteen pounds MORE now than I did then. This is so damn frustrating! I try doing what I read and hear that I'm supposed to do, and then I gain weight. So then I find something else to try, and I gain weight. One step forward, two steps back. And I don't think I would mind it so much if my clothes seemed loose or I felt more energized, but they don't and I don't. It is so damn frustrating!

I am not giving up. I refuse! I smoked for 30 years, but I quit! Granted, it took a while to do it. I quit thousands of times, but I finally FINALLY found a method that worked. My fingers are crossed that I something will finally click with this weight rollercoaster too.

I am so happy for everyone who has lost any weight. One pounds, fifty pounds, one hundred pounds! That is such an awesome achievement. And I am always hearing about "I lost thirty pounds last month" or "I lost fifty pounds last year" and I am so happy for these people...but DAMNIT! I've been busting my ass just as long as you have and all I have to show for it is a FIFTEEN POUND GAIN! UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Ok...done venting now... and I actually feel better. Onward and upward (or downward...please God, downward!)

    You'll get through it. That actually happened to me a while back. I decided to get active gain and I joined a gym and EVERYTHING and I ended up gaining weight. I was so distraught!!! -- Becareful of munchies now that your smoke free. I hear, people tend to gain when they stop smoking cause you can actually taste the food again... I dunno. Just something to be viligent about.

As long as your exercising and watching what you eat, all this hard work will catch up to you. Good Luck! emoticon
