In addition to timing a mile, and determining your BMI, I have some other baselines for you.
I want you to take your measurements.
These are important, because they help you to see how your body is changing.
If the scale doesn’t move, chances are you are losing inches.
Attached is a sheet for you to record all your measurements.
If you haven’t determined your BMI yet, here is the link to a page where you can do that: http://www.webmd.com/diet/calc-bmi-plus
You will need a tape measure. If you don’t have one, get one.
Some of you may have already timed your mile. If not, make sure you schedule when you will do that by Sunday.
Also on the goal sheet are push ups and plank time.
I want you to see how many pushups you can do in two minutes.
If you can’t do the standard kind (which I couldn’t when I started my journey last year),
then you can do them on your knees, like this:
Do the maximum number of pushups you can do in two minutes. You can take breaks. They don’t have to be non-stop.
I also want to see how long you can hold a plank for.
Here is what a plank looks like:
The plank test is consecutive. How many seconds can you hold this for?
You have until Sunday to complete these activities.
You will do them again at the halfway point and at the end of the course to measure your progress!!
GO FOR IT!!!
