Round is no longer an acceptable shape

Round is no longer an acceptable shape

Maryland is recruiting members for the MD-1 Disaster Medical Assistance Team. I very much want to join the team as part of the communications unit. The position description I’ve found indicates the need to be able to handle “arduous physical requirements. I don’t entirely know what that means, but I’ve got some work to do. So here’s my plan for now:

Step 1: Ride the excersize bike and remind my cardiac system that I know it exists and convince it we need to be friends again.

Step 2: Eliminate the belly.

Step 3 (assuming steps 1&2 haven’t killed me): Build strength and stuff.

Crap this is going to be hard.

Any suggestions from my medic readers what I might expect/need to work on?
