Find Your Fit! is a provincial physical activity promotions/communications campaign designed to get individuals motivated and moving towards healthy, active living.  The Find Your Fit! website is an excellent resource for physical activity throughout the lifespan.  You are also invited to join the Great Big Walk on the Walkabout Website if you would like to log your steps along with us.  Walking is an excellent and simple way to find your fit.

To Parchemuche Tsho (4780m)
We will spend two days on our approach to the Tashi Labsta. Our first night will be spent by the lake (Parchemuche Tsho) in a picturesque setting. We will be monitoring the weather conditions at this stage to be prepared for our pass crossing.

Quote for the Day

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

Find Your Fit Fact

Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.

Activity Suggestion: Human Knot

–   If the group is really big, split them into smaller groups. Too many people in a human knot can make the activity extremely difficult. Groups of 10-12 are ideal.

–   Arrange group members in a circle, standing shoulder to shoulder.

– Tell everyone to put their right hand up in the air, and then grab the hand of someone across the circle from them.

– Everyone then puts their left hand up in the air and grabs the hand of a different person.

– Check to make sure that everyone is holding the hands of two different people and that they are not holding hands with someone directly next to them.

– Tell group members to untangle themselves to make a circle without breaking the chain of hands.

–  If group members break the chain they need to start over.
