Veterans * Victory * Virtue

Please join yours truly as I salute and pay tribute to

This also is a special Veterans’ Day as I passed my full faculty defense according to GOD’s perfect plan!

While our military heroes engage in rigorous physical training, with PT tests that time:

  • 1½-mi. runs
  • ### push-ups
  • ### sit-ups

I did my share of high impact activity to prepare my energy for this AM’s event …

Just like I’ve connected almonds with energy for my full marathon as an analogy for my multiple regression statistical analyses, I’ve tied in what worked for me on the days I passed my previous rounds:

Here’s my training session from yesterday to work both the lower and upper bod:

2 for Tuesday: Double Whammy beyond the Moons on my Hammy

Simultaneous Moves for 20 reps/set with body weight or light resistance (ankle or wrist wraps, dumb bells or bands)

  • Squats (legs) & Shoulder Raises (delts and traps)
  • T-Bird Dead Lifts (booty) & Rows (back)
  • Extensions 2 Ways ~ Standing (quads) & Overhead (tris)
  • Curls 2 Ways ~ Standing (hams) & Upward (bis)
  • Trunk Twist (core) Curtsy Lunges (legs)
  • Ab-duction (inner thighswaistline)

CHEERS to ALL of our service men and women in uniform who’ve

  • fought for our freedom, both in the States and overseas
  • bled for our country, earning themselves the Purple Heart
  • died for those freedoms, earning themselves the Flag

 as well as ALL of our military families who experience the sacrifice.

Thank you, GOD, the Saints and the Angels for watching over us!!!

Beauty Tuesday: Triple Play Tuesday ~ Nautical Ambition

In ♥ & Soul, Beauty Tuesday, Community, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Relationships, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 07/07/2015 at 08:00

As I prepare for my potential promotion, I planned a new ensemble in light of our recent *Independence Day* and this ☼summer☼ season …

Nautical: * red * white * blue

JCP's

White pants {Emma Ankle} are suitable between *Memorial Day* & *Labor Day* + the red button down top made the cut {both by Liz Claiborne} topped with the navy blue & white 3/4-s cardi {by St. John’s Bay}

with the *stars* and =stripes=

Target

Sterling silver sailor steering wheels & yellow gold anchors for my ears pair well with this *star* denim tote bag (also perfect for the beach) with tan braided handles {by Mossimo} for my portfolios

 plus anchor and sailor steering wheel!

Apparently, my nautical inspiration extends beyond my outfit ~ after I set it out with accessories on ☼Sunday☼, I watched HGTV‘s Beach Flip premiere that also featured similar designs!

Accessories

Now should I wear a * red * white or * blue handbag & shoes?

Scratch wearing the white slacks ~ late-breaking, thunder-breaking: we’re getting another storm in!
