Fitness & blood draws + Outfit of the Day!

Lucky lucky me, thanks to a speedy metabolism I have never had to worry about gaining weight. Oh sure, there are days I feel like a bloated cow - but at the end of the day I'm still a size 2 and am just complaining because that’s the reality of being a woman. My challenge is that I can quickly lose muscle mass and before you know it, I am 'mushy' with no real strength. Sometimes referred to as 'Skinny Fat' or 'Bag of Bones' -  that can be me on occasion.

Knowing that I will be responsible for hauling my own bags to Europe ( 3 of them at 70# each!) and the safe transport of wounded soldiers, it is time to amp up the workouts and increase my upper body strength. Today's workout included 30 minutes on the elliptical and 25 minutes of weights & squats. Push-ups were soooo hard today - it's amazing how quickly your ability to do them will diminish if you don't do them on a regular basis.

Today I'm going to get a physical and get my blood drawn by a civilian doctor. Call it paranoia, but I always get a full exam prior to leaving for any military deployment. Yes - I get exams on base, but they never share the results with you which I think is odd. So anyways, here is my outfit for the doctors. There is no reason to not looking stylish - even when it is for something as dull as a doctor’s visit.
