Y’all. I was spoiled today. I got not one, but TWO workouts with my husband tonight.
As you all know, one of my fitness goals for this year is to do a pull up. An actual, real-life-I-pulled-my-own-body-weight-up, pull up!
Tonight’s assisted pull ups are brought to you by my handsome hubby! I’ve never done assisted pull ups this way!
I have a long way to go until I get to my goal.
I’m going to take it one day at a time, one rep at a time. And when possible, I’m gonna have a good time with my husband while doing it!
Pull ups...I’M COMING FOR YOU!!! [video 1: beginning of workout, video 2: end of workout after an intense upper body!]
That is a great longevity figure for LVDP. What about sillage? Also, while I can guess why Oakmoss appealed to you, given what I know of your Siberian Summer love, tell me how Hindu Kush is on you and what you like about it.

Hello, welcome to my blog - Hey everyone! My name is Kelly Gonzalez, I am a 4th year at Central Michigan University with a major in marketing and a minor in music. Weird combo, I know.... https://tmblr.co/ZJ60VV2nFwcf-
On January 17, 1991, President George H. W. Bush announced the start of what would be called Operation Dessert Storm—a military operation to expel occupying Iraqi forces from Kuwait, which Iraq had invaded and annexed months earlier. For weeks, a U.S.-led coalition of two dozen nations had positioned more than 900,000 troops in the region, most stationed on the Saudi-Iraq border.
From the beginning of the Desert Storm to the end, it only lasted 43 days. Yes, from January 17 to February 28, 1991, was the time of the Gulf War. And hence it's also called the '100 hour war'. The Gulf War is still seen as the cheapest war fought in US history. While this war was significantly inexpensive for the US, the greater cost of the war to the region was more than $676 billion.
It was the first time oil was used as a weapon in war. Iraqi combat engineers created trenches to fill them with oil and ignite them to slow coalition advances, and even filled oil into the Persian Gulf in order to keep the U.S Marines from landing. And the amount of oil that they spilled was estimated to be about four to 11 million barrels.
Saddam Hussein started to convey a more Islamic, religious appearance in Iraqi media. He showed himself praying at mosques and also supporting the Palestinian cause, hoping to reframe the war as a struggle against Western imperialism and Israeli scheming.
The Desert Storm helped secure Bill Clinton’s presidency. While the Iraqi invasion caused the price of oil to rise double, this led to a worldwide recession in the 90s and the defeat of George H.W. Bush by Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential election.
It calculated to be about 100,000 Iraqi soldiers that were killed in the incident. As for the US, they only had 383 deaths in the region.
Around 697,000 US troops risked their lives when they took part in this war.
The U.S and every supporter of war and violence should know that war is never the solution. It never was. It never will be.
As Churchill said, "To Jaw - Jaw is better than to War - War." #War#USA#Iraq#Kuwait#Saudi#Clinton#Churchill#Saddam#dessertstorm#blog#write#instablog#facts#history#politics#nowar#warisnotthesolution#peace
Y'all ever just be so tired that you think you are physically just incapable of doing anything? This week has been a WEEK. Not bad by any means but it has sapped me and my depression is kinda kicking my tail in a "I'm functioning but not really kinda way" I've fallen off my exercise wagon and I hate admitting that. I'm putting this out here to be accountable and to let others know that it's ok to not be at 100 all the time. Who wanna work back up to 100 with me tho? Walk challenge ....at least 30 mins tomorrow ...who joining me outdoors (distance doesnt matter we got each other virtually 😍)
