fitness challenge

Saturday, May 03, 2014

I was looking at the fitness articles and came across the fitness test. At the same time the BLC25 had included the fitness test as part of it's challenge. It has 4 parts push ups, crunches, steps, and walking a mile. Each timed for 1 minute.

I did each or should say tried each test. I failed miserable emoticon . I am not making excusing for myself, I failed. I am overweight, very out of shape, disabled, but I am not a quitter.

I now have a very good starting point as far as exercising goes. In a few weeks I will retake it again. From failing all I can do is go up. This was a good learning lesson for me.

    Trying your best is NEVER a failure! It's exactly, what you said --a starting point.

    YOU are a true inspiration to me, Debbie. I hope you know that.

    Good for you Deb !!!! Love, love, love your positive can do attitude !!! YOU CAN DO IT !!!

    Do you have a plan? Maybe instead of doing each of those on the tst for a minute you can do maybe start with 15 minutes each and weekly work your way up another 5 minutes ??? Just a thought.

    I am starting the walking group tomorrow and Thursdays and I will start with what I can do and not push myself this first week. I will do my best to ride my bike 15 minutes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays.

    We are in it to win it together Deb !!!!
