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.
PT ~ Physical therapy using 2-lb and 1-lb weights, alternating days.
UB ~ Upper body exercises
I've worked up to 50 and then 10 more.
BD ~ Belly dancing (my version of it, anyway)
The 25th: 2-mile walk. SEALp. PT. UB. BD.
The 26th: 4-mile walk. PT. BD. 1/4 hour of yard work. The cat claw growth is slowing.
The 27th: Rest.
The 28th: 2-mile walk. SEALp. PT. UB. BD.
The 29th: PT. BD.
The 30th: 2-mile walk. SEALp. PT. UB. BD.
The 31st: PT. BD. Happy Halloween. Link is to Mark Ratliff's Yahoo slideshow of his pumpkin carving amazement:
