Giving things away...

...I have an unfortunate habit of being proud of giving things away. It isn't a good kind of pride. It's more like a kind of arrogance. I brag about not being attached to things. Unfortunately, there are consequences. I'm searched for my leather bound copy of five Agatha Christie stories. It's gone. A vague memory sits in the back of my head of me deciding I'd never read it again, so I gave it away. I want to read it again, but it's gone. This isn't the first time. I'm afraid it won't be the last, either. The trouble with not being sure of what you value is that you often give away things of worth. I hope it's blessing someone else's life.

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. My pushups are against the wall.

Using 4-lb weights:
PT ~ Physical therapy
UBP ~ Upper body exercises, pushups, and chair sits against the wall

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

12: PT. UBP. x1. Stretch.

13: 2-mile walk. PT. UBP. x3. Stretch.

14: Rest.

15: 2-mile walk. PT. UBP. x3. Stretch.

16: 1/4-mile walk. PT. UBP. 
x1. Stretch.

Hersey's Plan

I saw an article that said the chocolate company wants to encourage impulse buying of candy.

Here's my suggestion: Remove the soy from your chocolate. Until then, sorry Hersey's.

No more Dove chocolate for me. It contains soy. Shockingly, I don't miss it.
