A small battle in the Civil War happened in Charleston, West Virginia on Sept. 13, 1862. It was a day-long artillery duel and series of firefights that left 43 men dead and 179 wounded, a number of downtown buildings in flames, and most of the town’s 1,500 residents temporarily in flight. A new book is out that chronicles it in detail.
Let's Get Personal
Here's where I share more personal insights, observations and articles on the topics of my faith, my family, and of course all things fun!
Sharing my thoughts about using my experience with the Army Physical Fitness Test (AFPT) to measure my 2017 fundamental fitness goals.
194.8 is my starting point for 2017. This past year I hit 200 for the first time. My goal is 185 and to be much more fit.
I had hoped have better managed my diet and exercise this past year and will deepen my resolve this year.
In the end I just need to stop eating pointless carbs and actually do some intentional exercise some each day.
I’ve been blessed with a fantastic metabolism and great health all my life. My ‘Army honed’ fitness level has declined from having coasted on it for 20 years. And the chips, lattes and Oreos have not helped 🙂
I think a basic level of daily cardio and some core strength exercises and stretching will be the right regimen for me.
I’m going to start with some basic goals that I’ll share in another post related to steps, cardio minutes, and some push ups, sit-ups and pull-ups each day.
Just reset my Bible app’s reading plan for the new year. I always experience amazing days where the scripture reading for the day speaks to me in a powerful way. Also love the fact that the Bible app can play the reading audibly – very nice to have in the car while driving.
