Time to Get Up!!
Ms. Bockle: I was listening to the iPod as usual whilst doing housework, and the song that got me jingling and jangling was: “Brand New Day” by Trevor Hall.
What’s My Body Mass Index?
LaFitterina: Not too long ago, I wanted to find out my Body Mass Index, so I Googled ‘BMI Calculator’, and went to Stanfordhealthcare.org. What follows is the output:
BMI Calculator Results:
Congratulations! According to your BMI score, you are considered normal weight.

Just Keep Moving, Just Keep Moving…
Mizzfit: Yesterday I tried out a run in the mid-afternoon heat and boy was I baked like a rotisserie chicken. First the right side got blasted, then the back, then the left — hot hot hot. At 4 miles in I was nauseous and a little jimbly-jambly so started walking. After about 100 yards I remembered a video I’d seen earlier and was inspired to keep going. Why run when I felt like doo-doo? Well, to conquer the nausea, to remain in control and of course, to see how tough I really am. And my peeps? I’m tough, yo! With one stop for water, I made it home–take me out of the oven I was done done done! So, to inspire you I’m sharing a link to the video of Derek Redmond in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona during his 400m race. Cheers to a lovely weekend!
Well, I’m going to stick to Trevor Hall and Derek Redmond for my inspiration, as my BMI doesn’t exactly send shivers down my spine.
That Derek Redmond video is awesome and inspirational. His entire life story is impressive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Redmond) and now, guess what, he’s a motivational speaker!
