Personal Health Plan



Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park is one of many fourteen thousand-foot peaks in
Colorado. This mountain is world known for its alpine climbing and technical rock
climbing. My goal is to some day climb what is referred to as the Diamond. This route is
1500 feet straight up, and can take two days to climb. Physical conditioning as well as
mental and spiritual condition is a big part of the climb.

Physically I would need to hike to the base of the rock face, which is sixteen miles of up
hill, and then proceed with the climb stopping at nightfall and sleeping on a ledge called
Broadway. This is all done carrying a pack that weighs forty to fifty pounds. When the
climb begins there is no protection except what my partner and I could carry in. Carefully
placing each cam and proceeding to the top. This is an extreme mental game, because if my
partner or I fall the only link between surviving and falling to the ground is a rope and
the piece of protection placed. Spiritually, I have to be in touch with myself and know
that what ever happens, it happens for a reason. Luck does not play a big part of
climbing, skill and psychological abilities are the biggest assets on the rock.

To start a health plan I feel there needs to be a goal. I have established this and now a
date to start. First I need to stop smoking and start an exercise program that fits into
my busy life style. In the following paragraphs I will attempt to show how I would train
for the adventure I have chosen.

January 1, 2002 is the date to stop smoking, no more cigarettes. A work out plan and diet
will be implemented along with climbing indoors at a rock gym throughout the winter
months, then rock climbing outdoors when the weather is better. These will all work my
physical as well as my mental health for the climb about to be attempted.

I will visit the fitness gym two times a week, and the rock gym once a week during the
winter months. The fitness gym on Tuesday nights will include first walking or running on
a treadmill for three to five miles, (depending on walking or running) this should take
twenty minutes. The body does not start to burn fat until twenty minutes of either running
or walking. After my warm up a full body workout will be the rest of the night. This will
include, working my chest, back, legs, biceps and triceps. On Thursday nights I will
attend the rock gym. There I can work on balance, and climbing techniques as well as
memory muscle that can not be worked in the fitness gym. Sunday will start at 9:00 am at
the fitness gym with aerobics and then into a full work out, including chest, back, legs,
biceps and triceps. The aerobics will help with cardiovascular and burning fat.

The physical part of my goal cannot be achieved without the right nutrition. This will
help not only with my body but also with my mental stability to achieve my goal. I now eat

  • Birth control education
    birth control education Birth Control Education The issue of birth control being taught and/or distributed in public schools is one worth debating. In biology and health classes students are educated in reproduction and sexuality, but not about such birth control methods such as condoms and birth control pills. While parents may touch briefly on the topic, some feel too embarrassed to discuss it with their children or deem it unnecessary. This is a very bad course of action because the world is

    Gatsbys Heat When F. Scott Fitzgerald turns on the heat in Gatsby, he amplifies a single detail into an element of function and emphasis that transforms neutral landscapes into oppressive prisms. Through these prisms which distort and color the lives of Fitzgerald\'s characters, we see why human\'s elations are, as Nick Carraway describes them, "shortwinded" (Gatsby 2). Heat is the antithesis of Jay Gatsby. It is symptomatic of his undoing, his nemesis. As he suited up in his cool demeanor time

    Literary Terms NICK CARRAWAY has a special place in this novel. He is not just one character among several, it is through his eyes and ears that we form our opinions of the other characters. Often, readers of this novel confuse Nick\'s stance towards those characters and the world he describes with those of F. Scott Fitzgerald\'s because the fictional world he has created closely resembles the world he himself experienced. But not every narrator is the voice of the author. Before considering the

    Cause and effect of the fitness movement In our ever-changing society, the one common thread that now every American seems to possess is a desire to have a body that is not hour-glass (1950’s) nor waifish (1990’s), but one that is lean, trim, and can physically go the “extra mile”. I speculate that the all-around athletic look is so popular because it is probably one of the hardest body types to achieve. In earlier times, hour-glass figures were the product of genetics and corsets, and the emac
