here's an idea for all the WWDers... we go diet/exercise, share em on top hea, and den we go pahtay 6 months from now... with success stories... how bout it?
NEO............ *Jeopardy song playing* ............. GAME ON! 😀
All I know is wen there's a WWD! challenge..... I'm there! It only took a few months for a Kwonic to step up and issue a WWD! No Scade 'Em Go Get 'Em Challenge and I'm stoked by it! 😀 😀 😀
I dunno how else to do it oddah than doing a combination of things and giving a point scale to it. It is/will be a work in progress so I'm gonna definitely need some feedback to establish some ground rules for da "game".
I was just thinking we make 'em kinda simple for instance, for those who lost so many pounds (in certain ranges 0-5 pounds 1 point, 6-8 pounds 3 points etc) you get so many points and those who hit their "goal" (doesn't have to be their "ideal weight") get bonus points and of course if you hit your "ideal weight" according to The Army height/weight chart below you get even more bonus points.
It's still in da works so if you got anything to add, No Scade 'Em Go Get 'Em and share and once we decide how it'll be run, I'll post da "rules" up. I really hope we get a good turn out and to help motivate, we'll do "weigh in's" maybe every couple of weeks. Dis will be a long "challenge" as we're trying to get our bodies heading into lifestyle changes so our projected end date will be July 2nd... to help celebrate our Independence. 😉
Hopefully we can arrange a pah-tay and get some prizes out at da end but hea's da grand daddy of them all (I hope)....... da one who wins da challenge will get 5 passes for my kim chee at their will (one week lead time please).
Is dat a good enough prize? 😛
Below is a chart used by The US Army and I'll tell you right now... I'm not "fit".
Funny thing. My friend went to his doctor and was told dis......
Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually.. Speed up heart not make live longer; that like say you can extend life of car by driving faster. Want live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies.. What does cow eat? Hay and corn. What are these? Vegetables. So, steak nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop can give 100% recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: If you have body and you have fat, ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, ratio is two to one, etc.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Cannot think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No Pain...Good!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING!!! .... Foods fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.. You should only do sit-ups if want bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy? HELLO .... Cocoa beans! Vegetable!!! Cocoa beans best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whales to me.
Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!
Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies:
1. The Japanese eat very little fat...... And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat..... And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine..... And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4 The Italians drink a lot of red wine..... And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5.. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats..... And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
Now if you believed any of da "jokes", I got some land to sell you in Kalapana. 😆
Happy Feel Good Friday Everybodies!
