Thank Goodness It's Sunday... 222...

~ Debbie Kay runs the Hope for the Broken Hearted blog. She posts a prayer with a lovely picture, almost every day. This past week, she also included a video I'd never seen of "I Can Only Image" by Mercy Me, one of my favorites. Wow.

~ Hot, fresh pizza, straight from the oven to the box to my hot little hands.

~ Time with dog.

~ Writing, even if I am buried under it.

~ Cool mornings! And yes, still grateful, every day, for electricity and A/C.

Week 166 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. 

PT ~ Physical therapy using 2-lb and 1-lb weights, alternating days.
UB ~ Upper body exercises
I'm starting low, at 10, to restart my workouts, with no weights yet.

22: 1-1/2 mile walk. PT.

23: 2-mile walk. PT

24: Rest. 

25: 1-1/2-mile walk. PT.

26: 1/2-mile walk. PT.

27: 1-1/2-mile walk. PT.

28: 1/2-mile walk. PT.
