So, I did pretty well on the Fit test. I did MOST things. I jumped 5.75 inches on the leap test (minimum for a girl is 3 inches). I did 1 regular push up and switched to 15 knee push-ups (minimum for a girl is 3 regular, OR 15 knee). I reached 5 inches PAST my toes on the Toe Touch part (minimum is no less than 6 inches AWAY from toes ). I could only do 30 seconds on the Wall Squat...those suckers are harder than they look. But I also never rested between events (minimum is 1 minute). I did 20 reps @ 15 pounds on Bicep Curls (minimum is 10 reps @ 8 lbs). I did the required 25 In and Outs. And even tho I didn't do the required 2 minutes of consecutive jumping jacks (I stopped at 40 sec. for about 5 sec, and then again at 1:20 for 5, and then again at about 1:40 for 5) I'm still going to start P90X today. This is not a race, it's not a competition with anyone else where if I have to stop and break I'll be forever humiliated. This is a competition with MYSELF, it's about ME, learning, and being active. I'm sure there will be things I can't do, but I'll stick with it until I can. If I need to take a break, or do the modified version, I will. I will keep an accurate record, got my sheets printed out, getting my equipment I need as we speak (thanks hon :oD), and I'm going to Bring It!
So here's to me for trying something that looks bloody scarey! And as Tony says "Do Your Best and Forget About The Rest!"
Is There a Problem with Weight Loss Culture?
