WIN Fit Test: I Am A "Fair" Losing Lady

Saturday, October 02, 2010

I am participating in Done Girls WIN challenge, and this weeks bonus points involved doing a FIT test and blogging your results.

With that said, I thought I would use the movie "My Fair Lady" to help explain my results. Why this movie? Because based on my results, I am overall "fair" and I am on the Losing Ladies Team- "so I'm a ladeee" (in faux British accent-LOL). So here is where I stand:

So basically this picture illustrates where I am in this test. "Fair" is considered at the bottom rung of the rankings. Obviously, I am in desperate need of guidance in almost all the tests. Henry where are you?

emoticon Test #1 Plank-
Who knew that a second could be so FREAKIN' LONG. I could only hold the plank for 60 seconds which is in the "Fair" Range

emoticon Test #2 Push-Ups-
I could only do nine of those "manly man" push-ups- which was fair. I was going to protest this as sexism or something but since they used a woman to illustrate- I had no excuse to make. DANG!!!

emoticon Test #3 Squats-
I did 44 squats which put me in the GREAT category emoticon.

emoticon Test #4 Hand to Big Toe Pose-
I was in the "fair" range again but I sort of knew that I am not that flexible. Something to work on.

emoticon Test #5 Standing Stork-
Once again who knew that a second could last an eternity! I probably held the pose for 5 seconds before losing my balance- which put me in the fair range.

emoticon Test #6 Bar Squat-
I actually did GREAT on this one emoticon

emoticon Test #7 Speed-
I actually was in the "fair" category with this one. My sprinting capabilities are zero to none. Something to work on without falling out emoticon

emoticon Test #8 Endurance-
In the "fair" category. This morning I ran/walked 4 miles and it took me 67 minutes which is below the expectation of running it continuously in 30 min.

emoticon Test #9 Step-Up-
I had high expectations for this one because I use to do "The Firm" workouts and they incorporate steps in their workouts. Obviously, my expectations were unrealistic because I could barely do 10 in a minute- OH HOW THE SECONDS JUST FLY BY WHEN YOU DON'T WANT THEM TOO.

emoticon Test #10 Posture-
Did GREAT in this one!

After doing this test, I realized that I have a lot to improve upon in 13 weeks. However, it will be nice to improve on everything so that when 2011 comes around my results will be "GREAT" and I will feel like this picture:

    Don't feel bad. I dont' think I could ever get up and do a plank let alone pushups and I have tried that stork postion. Lets just say I have very little balance and coordination. I think you did great and jsut think what this challange will do for you. I bet you will place higher by the end of november. Keep up the good work

    I am currently doing the leslie sansone walks with weights and that is helping with my balance and coordination issues. Plus when I lose about another 40 pounds that will probably make a big difference as well

    We can do this.

    Love this blog! I must say, I would have placed lower than the lowest on the rankings. I would say you did smashingly well! Good luck in this, and all your challenges.

    You did WAAAYYYYYY better than I would have on the test!! LOL I can barely do a modified plank for 15 seconds..never mind a full plank for 60! Can't do "real" pushups, would NOT make it through the 4 miles.....need I go on? LOL I'd better, cause I've got a long way to go!
