REAL Week 422

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.  Since my accident I haven't done these, but I'm working to add them back into my routine.

PT ~ Physical therapy
UB ~ Upper body exercises

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

26: 1-1/2 mile walk. PT. UB. Used 1-lb weights x3. Stretch.

Bother

No work on Christmas Lost. *pfft*

Walk and PT done. YAY!

Eat healthy wasn't even close. *pfft*

Grocery shopping done but spent more than I planned. *pfft*

A little reading. *pfft*

Lunch with a friend. Awesome!

Sorting little things that need to be done and doing some. Good.

Distracted. Definitely!

Watching what's going on in Texas, with hurricane Harvey. All day long. Praying for those who need help and the helpers.

God willing, I'm not as distracted today.

Follow Up 29 Aug

How'd I do?

Christmas Lost ~ Sent it to the editor, and it's done, so back to me. ~ Opened it. Didn't touch it.

Exercise ~ Done.

Eat healthy ~ Pretty good.

Read ~ A little.

Make pudding ~ Make chocolate mousse. Yummy.

Make jello ~ Done.

Make pumpkin spice crispy rice treats ~ Not yet.

Make soup ~ Not yet.

Give the battle to God ~ Yes.

Praise God in the storm ~ Yes.

Not beating myself up anymore. I spent much of yesterday on social media, following what was happening in Houston. I have a number of friends in Texas.

Schedule today is busy. Wonder how much I'll accomplish? Feel like I'm spending a lot of time keeping my head above water, so to speak.
Moon set.

Step in the right direction...

Rather than fight to finish the last scene, I sent what I have to my editor. So editing as started on "Christmas Lost." Woohoo!

God bless those in the path of Hurricane Harvey.

And it's Friday again...

...and Christmas Lost still isn't finished. Bah. Today has several things already scheduled. However, this will not stop me from attempting to add more to the story.
