oh me, oh my, oh groan!

Yes, I'm aware that I've already posted a blog today, but it's my blog so I can post as many times as I want! hehehe

The bad thing about cleaning up is that you find things. Sometimes that's good. I actually found money in TWO different coats/jackets when it snowed. I layered up, and voila! (I think the English translation of that is "There it is!" But I also found a newspaper clipping from last July for a website I've been meaning to look up.
www.adultfitnesstest.org
It's the website that details how to measure your physical fitness, as well as you BMI (body mass index). According to this site, I shouldn't try the first part of the test because I am woefully inactive, but I'm thinking I might try it. I mean, hey, I'm not one to push myself too hard when it comes to exercise. I know the results will be bad on every test they show, but I am thinking about doing the 1 mile walk and the sit-ups test. Then I'll test myself again in June and beam with the improvement. Okay, I probably won't beam, but I'll nod and say, "Hmm...could be worse."
So for everyone who wanted to get physically fit as a New Year's Resolution (or lose weight, or fit back into the skirts in your closet, etc), we are now almost one month out. Here's something you can actually easily sink your teeth into and go for. I double dog dare ya.

first of all, i didn't notice this was two posts in one day...guess i am the only one that doesn't pay attention to that. secondly i was dying laughing because i was on the treadmill when reading your blog. I won't take the fitness test, but I'll try to keep walking. It's supposed to relieve stress, but i think it adds more!

OK- taking the test now...

Ok, I just guessed at the answers because I'm too lazy to do the exercise. I am overweight and at an increased risk for disease. Nice.
