My Heroes... Mary Walton Morris

Once again, there is truly very little about the lady herself. She bore 10 children and raised them to be honorable. The 3 oldest, boys, served their fledgling country. She escaped the destruction of her husband's vast property by the British. Once the enemy was routed, she was there helping him rebuild. There are only references to her in letters to Mr. Morris by their son. Even those references are meager, speaking of her safe escape and current whereabouts.

I cannot imagine the courage it must have taken, and yet what other choice did she have? We lament of the difficult choices we endure and forget the luxury of having choices.

6. A Model Bride: The Macleans Book 1  by Autumn Macarthur is a sweet Christian romance set in London and Scotland.

7. You're Already Amazing: Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be  by Holley Gerth non-fiction. Thanks, Margaret! I had trouble relating to Holley's examples. However, she helped me recognize that I am a storyteller, a priceless gift.

8. SEAL of My Heart by Sharon Hamilton Military romance, steamy scenes. I enjoy her stories. Sharon and I became friends early in her career. I watched her struggle, and I've watched her succeed. I'm so happy for her.

9. SEAL's Code by Sharon Hamilton Military romance, steamy scenes.

10. Love So Deep by Kathleen Ball Western romance. I enjoyed the story.

Week 244 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
12 reps sometimes with weights.
200 minutes

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

19: 30 minutes. Short walks. PT. UB.

20: 60+ minutes. PT. UB. Stretch. Wandered the Ren Faire.

21: Rest.

22: 60 minutes. 1-mile walk. PT. UB. Stretch.

2330 minutes. Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

24: 45 minutes. 1+ mile walk. PT. UB. Stretch.

2530 minutes. Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

255 minutes total
