Happy President’s Day!

Here’s a tribute to my personal favorite Commander-in-Chief, Ronald Reagan, whose 105th birthday would’ve been earlier this month ~ as well as to the Challenger Crew, whose crash took place just over three decades ago …

References to The Great Communicator:

Ronald Reagan

 R.I.P. ✌ also to my Lolo Tico (February 10, 1909-August 26, 1996) on his birthday and his 20th anniversary this year.

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!!!

My fave *MAV* duo: Dirk Nowitzki (#41) & Steve Nash (#13) ~ Bobble Heads & Nesters of my exclusive sports memorabilia collection

A whole decade ago, my ♥former fave Mav♥ was named NBA‘s Most Valuable Player with ☼Los Suns☼ the same season he was traded there from Dallas. Now he’s retiring as a LAker

Steve Nash: an accomplished athlete

My ♣lucky No. 13♣ has been †blessed† with his mad skills as

  • a baller on the court, as well as
  • ♠kicked ace♠ on the soccer field and
  • faced off on the ♦hockey rink♦! ✌
