My Heroes... Henrietta Middleton Rutledge

At the age of twenty-four, she married Edward Rutledge, a lawyer. They had two children, a son who married and a daughter who did not. The daughter devoted herself to helping orphans and homeless girls. Edward married to please his parents, but it isn't mentioned why Henrietta married him. She wasn't of good health and lived her life quietly, dying in 1792.

I'm giving myself permission to work on All or Nothing and read, all day. Things have caught up to me.

Week 384 of REAL

REAL - Reduce stress Exercise Adequate sleep Lower caloric intake

What Navy SEALs are required to do to make it into BUD/S:
Right up front: Never in a million years could I do what is required. However, I needed to start somewhere. Considering how fit the SEALs are, I figured it was a good place to start. So my SEAL puppy reps (SEALp) consist of girls' pushups, crunches, and flutter kicks, a SEAL training basic. I started with doing one of each.  Since my accident I haven't done these, but I'm working to add them back into my routine.

PT ~ Physical therapy
UB ~ Upper body exercises

SEALFit shared some good hints I want to learn and remember:

25: Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

26: 1-mile walk. PT. UB. Used 1-lb weights. Stretch.

27: Rest.

28: 1-mile walk. PT. UB. Used 1-lb weights. Stretch.

29: Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

30: 1-mile walk. PT. UB. Used 1-lb weights. Stretch.


1: Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

Christmas Traditions

I don't know if this is still available, but I'll look for it: Hosley Candle Company Rustic Pine scent. I haven't found it so far. I'm glad I bought extra two years ago. It's the only scent I've found that comes close to truly smelling like pine.

First Saturday Pancake Breakfast: Yummy way to start December.

Mulberry candles.

Do one thing every day to prepare for Christmas.

Polar Express movie.

ION television shows their own collection of Christmas movies that they play on the weekends. Not high end stuff. Some aren't worth the time, but a few are warm fuzzies, like A Christmas Kiss I and II.

To help me remember: 12 Days After Christmas starts with 1st night, the night of Christmas Day, ending on 12th night on the 5th of January and 12th day on the 6th.
