TBR

51. World Changer: A Mother's Story: The Unbreakable Spirit of U.S. Navy SEAL Aaron Caron Vaughn by Karen Vaughn biography and parenting guide. I have no children, but I need to learn how to parent myself. I've stumbled along over the years and decided to use this book. What a remarkable, admirable family.

52. Renegade (A Coalition Rebellion novel series Book 6) by Justine Davis Sci-Fi romance. I've enjoyed this series. Her stories are character driven, but this is also a great story, the whole series. Yes, I bought them all in paperback.

53. Sing Me Back Home (The Gallaghers of Montana series Book 1) by Eve Gaddy contemporary romance. I enjoyed the books more as I went along, mostly but ended up removing them from my reader. I won't read them again.

54. Texas Cowboy (Whiskey River series Book 2) by Eve Gaddy contemporary romance. She used to be on my Must Read List, but the swearing and casual bedroom scenes take me out of the story.

55. His Best Friend's Sister (Devil's Rock Whiskey River series Book 2) by Eve Gaddy contemporary romance. I don't know why both books are listed as book 2. Makes no sense to me. I downloaded them because they were free; she was on my Must Read List from awhile ago; and I thought they were part of the series Justine Davis also writes for. I'm pretty picky. There's only so much time in a day and too many good books to read to spend time on books I don't love.

Brain Dump

Concentration Camp: Location where people are imprisoned, starved, brutalized, gassed, burned, and buried in mass graves.

Using words incorrectly is a sign of ignorance.

Choosing to ignore the opportunity to learn the truth is willful ignorance.

Willful ignorance is inexcusable and disgraceful.

Blurting ignorant statements, without doing proper homework, is weak.

REAL Week 516

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. My pushups are against the wall.

Using 1, 2, and/or 4-lb weights:
PT ~ Physical therapy
UBP ~ Upper body exercises, pushups, and chair sits against the wall

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

14: 2-mile walk PT UBP 0-lb x3 Stretch 1 hour yard work

15: 2-mile walk PT UBP 0-lb x1 1-lb x1 Stretch 

16: Rest

17: 2-mile walk PT UBP 0-lb x5 Stretch
