Brain Dump

I enjoy "The Great British Bake Off." This week, they focused on pie. The Master Piece challenge was an "American Pie." First, the crust people. They made tarts not pies. Second, pumpkin pie is made with pumpkin, not acorn squash, not butternut squash. Using those makes it a squash tart. Here's a picture of pumpkins:
The orange things are pumpkins. The cute brown thing is a dog. :-)

Friday the 13th

No, I'm not superstitious. I tried it for a while, but there were too many contradictions. Then I had the day I flew home from Thailand, on Friday the 13th. I watched the sun rise in Bangkok. I watched it set over the ocean. I watched it rise over the ocean and watched it set from my front yard. It was a pretty good day. Today, I think I'll celebrate with pizza. :-)

REAL Week 467

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. Currently, I can't sit on the floor and hope to get up again, so crunches and flutter kicks are on hold, and my pushups are against the wall.

Using 1-lb weights:
PT ~ Physical therapy
UBP ~ Upper body exercises and pushups

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

6: PT. UBP. x3. Stretch.

7: 1-1/2 mile walk. PT. UBP. x4. Stretch.

8: Rest.

9: 2-mile walk. PT. UBP. x4. Stretch.

10: 1/2-mile walk. PT. UBP. 
x2. Stretch.

11: 2-mile walk. PT. UBP. x4. Stretch.

12: 1/2-mile walk. PT. UBP. x2. Stretch.
