Hi Kirstin! Hope by now you're feeling a lot better. I felt so sorry for you watching your video blog. You looked so disappointed and tired. Being sick is the pits. I learned years ago to take time-release Vitamin C capsules all winter, along with drinking hot tea. You should probably work up to pull-ups by increasing your upper body strength. If you have small hand weights you can do sets of bicep curls a couple of times per day, gradually increasing the number of reps as you get stronger.My son was overweight and he started walking before and after work. Now he's averaging 7 miles a day. It's helped him tone up all over. Stick with it sweetie and whichever branch of the service you join is going to be lucky to get you.
I can understand the call of chocolate. :) Hang in there - just keep your goals in mind. The army? Woot! Sounds like fun! I am a teacher and I have noticed that when I start to get sick if I take Airborne it helps a lot. Don't know how it does once you have gotten sick - but maybe it is something you can try. Pull ups??? Man! I WISH I could do that. :D I am sure you will be able to do it over time - just be patient with yourself. You can TOTALLY do this - you seem like the type of person that does what she says when she puts her mind to it. So commit and go get it! It will be sooooo worth it! :D 1793 days ago
