Early Morning Workout

Week 40 of the 52 week photo challenge. This week’s theme: Play Time

Early morning at the gym with nobody around: this is my play time. I believe this is my first upload from an iphone. The cameras on these phones have much improved. I still love my slr and dslr cameras and do not see the replacement of these cameras with a smart phone camera. But it is still easy to carry around and capture some decent images.

Fitness Should Not Be Taken Lightly

Fitness Should Not Be Taken Lightly

There is a lot to fitness. It is made up of what you eat, how much you move and what those movements are. There are a lot of ways that someone can improve their health and their appearance by getting fit. The following paragraphs have a number of ideas that you can use to manifest the workout routines and schedule that fits your lifestyle.

Often, people try to improve their fitness through weight lifting. While this can help, you really only need six simple exercises to improve fitness. These exercises are the push up, squats, leg raises, pull ups, bridges, and handstand push ups.

There is no reason to fear physical activity. Bicycling is another excellent fitness option. You can alternate your work commute with bicycling as a way to incorporate exercise into your life. If you work less than five miles from home you should be able to get there in thirty minutes or less and since you will have to ride home again, you get two workouts in one day.

Try creative thinking when you lay out to style your fitness program. Many exercise forms exist that can give you a great workout without having gym membership required. You should do something you enjoy to help you maintain motivation and keep doing the work.

Work towards strengthening your thighs to better protect the knees. One of the more common sports injuries is a torn ligament behind the kneecap. The easiest way to protect the knees is to do exercises that not only workout your quads but also your hamstrings. Try performing leg curls and extensions.

When working out your abs, don’t use only crunches. Merely one fat pound burns off for every single 250,000 crunches that you complete. Simply performing crunches is not as effective as a more comprehensive program. Workout your abdominals in other methods, at the same time.

Cleaning offers a great method of fitness through the day. If you are already scrubbing the surface, do some sit-ups while you’re in that area. Take frequent breaks in your usual activities to do a few pushups. By fitting basic activities into the daily routine, you will be fit quickly.

Because of the information that we’ve given you, you need to now have a better thought of how to get fit. Keep in mind that there may be always more to discover, but this data is useless if you don’t input it into practice. You’ll likely be capable of set good fitness goals and then make rapid progress towards them as soon as you inform yourself properly.

Uniquely beautiful by any measure, perhaps the most captivating quality of this award-winning 7,239-square-foot, three-level custom-designed Seal Beach residence is how it unites the ancient and the new in a technologically advanced beachfront home dedicated to comfortable family living, fine arts, and the rejuvenation of body and spirit.
The soft-contemporary home features Fossil-flecked seagrass limestone floors, granite and marble in a range of delicious hues, stainless steel, copper, teak, and mahogany in the exterior and interior construction are complemented by sculptures and artifacts from Asia.
For all its artistic balance, the home — first place winner in Residential Design & Build Magazine’s 2009 prestigious Design Excellence Award for homes over 7,000 sq. ft. – is equally attentive to every physical comfort, with a special focus on fitness and social activities.
Its main level is dedicated to an extraordinarily scenic living and dining area, a fabulously attractive and functional kitchen, and an office/library designed for focus and productivity. The upper level is devoted to bedrooms, and the lower level to recreation, casual entertainment, fitness, and therapeutic wellness.
The dining and living rooms and the master suite face the sea and Santa Catalina Island; mitered windows create open vistas from the Seal Beach pier to the Long Beach city skyline. There are full kitchens on both the main and lower levels; five bedrooms including an expansive master suite with many luxuries; seven bathrooms; two laundry rooms; a billiard room; and a plush state-of-the-art projection home theater with a 92-inch screen and fully reclining seats. A wrap-around staircase and elevator access the primary living areas of the home’s three levels, plus its rooftop sundeck.

The home’s library-office has his-and-her built-in desks, a fireplace, a 500-plus-bottle wine cellar, and an adjoining Zen meditation garden.
The surfside ocean-view courtyard is a large alfresco extension of the lower level, with a completely appointed outdoor kitchen with granite counters, a heated swim-in-place lap pool and heated spa, an outdoor shower, and a custom stainless steel firebowl. Skillfully hand-laid mosaics of koi fish and sea turtles make the pool and spa works of art in themselves.
Advanced technologies increase the convenience of home’s comforts as well as its security and environmental friendliness. Crestron and Lutron “smart house” stations located throughout let residents control everything from music, lighting, and temperature to views from night-vision-equipped security cameras. All of the home’s major control points have locking gates augmented by a biometric system using a stored database of fingerprints; a simple swipe of the finger by anyone in the database gets access to the house.
A 52-panel solar system on the roof contributes significantly to the home’s electrical needs. Heating is provided by a 10-zone radiant water-heated system in the floors; cooling is provided by six air conditioners. Earth-friendly artificial grass enhances the paved driveway in front of the three-car garage, which has custom aluminum and frosted glass doors that give the home an enchanting gem-like glow when backlit in the evenings.

Humphreys hosts Army 10-miler shadow run

By W. Wayne Marlow, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, Public Affairs

CAMP HUMPHREYS, SOUTH KOREA – Over 300 runners from across the Korean peninsula took part in the second annual Army 10-miler Shadow Run hosted here Oct. 2.

First Lieutenant Robert Anderson of the 532nd Military Intelligence Battalion won the nighttime race, designed to mirror the Army’s annual run in Washington, D.C., in 1 hour, 3 minutes and 51 seconds. First Lieutenant Sarah Rainville took the women’s crown, finishing in 1:16:44.

Anderson said he initially thought only about doing his best and having a good run. But when some entrants passed him early in the race, his focused changed.

“I was going to try and take it easy … but then an adrenaline rush hit and I decided to pick it up,” he said.

Anderson maintained a steady pace, running the second half in just two more minutes than he did the first five miles. “I felt good the whole time,” he said. “I felt like I had some left in the tank. I started training for it last year, so I’ve been upping my mileage.”

The Camp Humphreys shadow run will be shown on a large screen during the Army 10-miler in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 9, and Anderson plans to be there to watch it and participate in his second 10-miler of the week. “This was prep for that one,” he said.

Former United States Army Garrison Humphreys Command Sgt. Maj. Jason Kim fired the opening gun at 9 p.m. locally to coincide with the actual time the run will start in Washington D.C. Led by Kim’s replacement, Command Sgt. Maj. Spencer Gray, the runners started under the Super Gym walkway, then snaked their way around the airfield twice, ending up back at Super Gym.

“It’s an absolutely great event,” Gray said. “Soldiers work hard, so when you can do something like this to build esprit de corps, it’s a positive thing. It’s an opportunity for everyone to have a good time.”

The crisp, cool October air helped keep the runners fresh, as did rehydration stations manned by volunteers along the route. The constant encouragement by fellow runners and cheering from the sidelines helped push the runners toward the finish.

“It’s not too cold. It’s nice running weather,” Gray said. “You can always wear something to keep you warm, and if it gets too hot, you can dress down.”

Anderson agreed that the race featured ideal conditions. “It’s great weather, no overheating,” he said. “It’s the best weather for running.”

Anderson said he has three brothers in the Army who are also all enthusiastic runners, and there was another family connection of note. Specialist Charles Rodgers IV flew from Hawaii to run the race with his father, Charles Rodgers III, who manages Splish and Splash Water Park on Humphreys. The two finished with identical times of 1:32:40.

Besides ideal weather and enthusiastic observers, the runners were treated to replicas of Washington, D.C., monuments built by Jeffrey Hubbard of the USAG Humphreys Family, Morale Welfare and Recreation office. The replicas, made of Styrofoam and braced by wood supports, included the Vietnam Memorial, the Pentagon, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, and the capitol. The project took about two weeks, according to Hubbard.

“It was to give everybody something extra to look at during the run and to do something different,” Hubbard said. “We figured looking at a poster would be kind of boring. We wanted to give them incentive to go and see the next one. They’ll be here next year. They’re built to last.”

Area III Sports Director Lonnie Herring credited volunteers with helping make the run a success.

“We had three drink tables on the trail and at the start and finish point,” he said. “We had BOSS bring in volunteers, folks standing on the road, and people handing out numbers and pace chips before the race.” The computerized chips, attached to the runners’ shoes, started and stopped when someone crossed the start and finish lines, giving everyone an accurate 10-mile time.

For all the logistics involved in having hundreds of people run 10 miles, Herring said most of the work was done beforehand.

“The pre-registration is the most time-consuming,” he said, also mentioning coordination with Military Police, road closures, medical considerations, and taxi and bus services being suspended. But all the work paid off in the end, Herring noted.

Prior to the run, entrants were addressed by USAG Humphreys Commander, Col. Joseph P. Moore.

“We’re here to have fun, and I hope your commanders told you that if you run this, there’s no P.T. tomorrow. Ten miles is no small task,” Moore said. “I’ve run this loop a lot at night. There’s plenty of light out there. The terrain is real friendly. There are no big hills, just a lot of open room to run.”

The top three finishers in the men’s 29 and under category were: Wbatt Reith (1:07:53); Samuel Smiths (1:09:09) and Daniel Bates (1:09:35). Following Anderson in the men’s 30-39 category were David Snow (1:12:41) and Nathan Stahl (1:18:02).

In the men’s 40-49 category, the top three finishers were Brett Bassett (1:14:49), Dan Burnett (1:17:06) and Felix Lassus (1:18:57). Leading the way in the men’s 50 and over category were Robert Nott (1:09:14), Mark Sullivan (1:09:57) and Kwon, Song-ki (1:19:23).

Following Rainville in the women’s 29 and under category were Kyle Wilson (1:22:20) and Liela Moser (1:26:01). In the women’s 30 and over category, top finishers were Sarah Stahl (1:20:45), Adam Leinen (1:27:52), and Jamila Moody (1:34:11). Taking the women’s over 40 crown was Kim, Hui-ok (1:37:06). In the women’s over 50 category, Barbara Garner (1:37:31) took first, followed by Susan Jentoft (1:43:23).

Strawberry Milkshake

Strawberry Milkshake

Although you can not "see" it, this milkshake was made with low fat milk. And because I prefer it cold but not ice cold, no crushed ice was added.

Pregnancy Walk

Pregnancy Walk


One of the best cardiovascular exercises for pregnant women, walking keeps you fit without jarring your knees and ankles. It is safe throughout the nine months of pregnancy and can be built into your day-to-day schedule.

Why is exercise recommended during pregnancy?

Exercise does wonders for you during pregnancy. It helps prepare you for childbirth by strengthening your muscles and building endurance, and makes getting your body back in shape once the baby’s born much easier. Staying active during pregnancy doesn’t necessarily mean going for the burn. Your body releases a hormone called relaxin during pregnancy which loosens your joints in preparation for delivery, so you need to take care with the choice of exercise and pay attention to technique. It’s important to find exercises that won’t injure you or harm the baby.

Ideal exercise gets your heart pumping, keeps you supple, manages weight gain, and prepares your muscles for the hard work of labour and delivery — without causing undue physical stress for you or your baby. Many activities such as running and weight training are fine in the beginning, but you may need to modify your regime as you grow bigger. You’ll be better off avoiding activities that could put you at risk of slips and falls, such as cycling, rollerblading, horseriding and skiing, although people who take part in these sports competitively often continue well into their pregnancy.

The following exercises are fairly safe for expectant mothers, although some of them may not work for you during the last few months of your pregnancy. To be safe, consult your doctor before embarking on any of these activities.
