Tuesday Follow Up...

How'd I do?

Pretty well, actually.

My sister and I enjoyed a lovely walk and breakfast at P.croissant.

I've added to Faith's Labor.

A good day. Hopefully, today will go well, too.

Carpe Diem... Martinsville...

NASCAR ~ Carl came in 17th. Alas. Go Carl!

What needs to be done, today?

Bah! Faith's Labor isn't finished, but it has been added to... it's going in an unexpected direction.

I need to create a better daily routine. I'm so easily distracted.

My Heroes... Robert R. Livingston

Mr. Livingston didn't sign the Declaration of Independence, but he was part of the committee that helped frame it. There was no given reason why he didn't sign it except perhaps because his constituents were not supportive. He was an advocate for independence and served his country in various offices. His interests were wide and varied. He's also the last man featured in Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. It's well worth the read.

Opportunities were offered and accepted. If a stumbling block impeded the way, it was moved, blasted, or crawled over. I want to do this.

TBR List...

28. SEAL the Deal (SEAL Brotherhood #4) by Sharon Hamilton

29. Redeemed Act 1 by Julie King York Contemporary Christian Romance. I chatted with Julie about her book at the Arizona Dreamin' Conference, last year. It intrigued me, and I put it on my Wish List. I finally decided to quit putting it off. It isn't a fluffy read. Do I truly believe the Atonement works? If I do, why do I put limits on it where I'm concerned? I also needed to rethink how I view my body. Why do I punish my body? It's a treasure God has given to me. I need to treat it as such.

Week 196 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.

20: Short walks. PT. UB.

21: 1-mile walk. PT. UB.

22: Rest.

23: 1/4-mile walk. PT. UB.

24: Short walks. PT. UB.

25: Short walks. PT. UB.

26: Short walks. PT. UB.
