Graduated BMQ yesterday, arrived at my new base today. Holy crap, I’m shellshocked, such a HUGE difference from the last one. I don’t know how to handle the freedom and lack of direction. Literally got 30 seconds of instructions from our Mcpl, then were let go for the entire weekend to do whatever we want.

Dormmates have built a three story beer funnel, if that’s any indication of this place…

"Drive the Body, Engage the Core."

During BMQ, the MCpl that ran my session loved to say, “Drive the body, engage the core.” It’s a saying that will stick with me forever, especially when I’m working out.

CW: 132.2 lbs 
~1600-1800 calories must be the sweet spot for me, with regards to fat loss. If anything, I’m dropping weight too fast, but I can’t seem to stomach more calories, especially since I’m eating clean.  

Regular Pushups: 25 x 20 x 20
Boxer Pushups: 7 x 7 x 7 x7 x7
Chin-ups: 4 x 3 x 3
Dips: 5 x 4 x 4
Running: My leg seems to be healing up, I can run about 0.5 km without having many issues. I take a break after doing a short bout of running, but overall, being quite conservative with my favourite activity. I’m also taking it easy on the cardio overall. Most of my cardio is coming from jumping jacks, deep-sea divers and hitting/kicking the punching bag. High intensity shit. I’m basically taking inspiration from when I did fighter training and from cross-fit. My workouts are fairly short (usually about an hour), but quite intense. Hopefully, I’ll be healed up and ready to dive deep into running when I hit a weight loss plateau, maybe a month from now. 

For now, my plan will be something like this:
One day of strength training/plyo/high intensity/fighter shit.
One day of endurance/low intensity cardio OR a rest day (depending on my energy level… and how much I run around at work.) 

Raina, a circulation assistant at our Fairmont location, recommends How They Croaked by Georgia Bragg (illustrated by Kevin O’Malley).

“It’s a fact - everyone dies!  Even the most famous people die.  We are not always told how or why - but we know they die.  This book tells us the “how and why” in a fun way that young adults can appreciate. The tales of these famous people from history are funny, cool, disgusting, and even sometimes stupid.  Between the pages of this book you will discover how Christopher Columbus died.  Continue reading and unwrap the mystery of how King Tut’s body was turned into a mummy.  Read How They Croaked and unlock the secrets behind the deaths of 19 famous people.”

Michelle, our Virtual Branch Librarian, suggests Zombie In Love by Kelly DiPucchio (illustrated by Scott Campbell).

"This is an adorable picture book about a lonely zombie named Mortimer who just wants to find the ghoul of his dreams. It’s an excellent read-a-loud and is packed with jokes that kids and adults will enjoy."

Pick up Zombie in Love today from our Fairmont, Mannington, or Bookmobile branches!
