BLC 25 Week 1

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

I learned a lot about my teammates for this challenge and found that I had quite a bit in common with people. Probably the most challenging part of the challenge was the Freggies portion. I had to try a new fruit or veggie or prepare them in a different way. With sharing a car with my husband and how busy we are, it was tough finding time to go to the store to purchase new freggies. It was surprisingly tough to pamper myself daily, too. It definitely reinforced that I need to make myself a priority.

I did the fitness test with my kids and a neighbor girl. For the fitness test, I was able to do 14 push-ups in one minute, 20 crunches in one minute, and my pulse was 132 after the 3 minute step test.

For the scorecard, I scored 1050 out of the possible 1200. I didn't get a perfect score as I didn't get in the maximum amount of fitness minutes. This was only week one, though, and I will continue to improve throughout the rest of the challenge.

This challenge and especially the fitness test has inspired me to start some sort of challenge for my Girl Scouts over this summer. We meet tomorrow, so I will run it past them and see what they think. I will definitely emphasize that it will be an individual challenge where they are only competing against themselves. Every girl is at a different fitness level.
