My Happy Ending.

Thursday, July 26, 2012

I am tired...so very tired. The kind of tired that makes tired tired, if that makes sense :P
This weekend, July 28th, will be my daughter's last pageant in SC for a long time and she is so excited to be doing a pageant but sad that she will not see her pageant friends down here for a while. After the pageant, I will start going through all of mine and the kids things and slimming down everything that we don't need or use. Then I will have a yard sale to get rid of these things.
The week of the 18th, I will give up my beloved South Carolina palm trees and heat to move back home to Virginia. The kids and I are moving on with our lives without my now ex-husband and their dad. He will eventually be moving back to Virginia once he gets out of the navy.
I have been dating an awesome man, Shawn, for a while now. We have a son together, my youngest son, Gabriel. Shawn will become part of Gabriel's every day life. I decided that when my ex-husband and I split up that I would not make my daughter change school in the middle of the school year and disrupt her life any more than it will already be disrupted, so she finished out the school year, finished up with her dance recital with dance, and now it's time to move on with my life and finally be happy for a change.
Part of me is scared out of my wits, but I know I will finally have my happy ending. Shawn and I started dating again (we met when I was 18) in November 2010 when my ex and I split up for the second time. We broke up in March 2011 and my ex and I decided to try one more time to fix our marriage. Shortly after, I found out I was pregnant and we knew immediately that my little bean was Shawn's. I went through some turmoil and almost lost Gabriel several times. The Ex deployed and I went through most of my pregnancy alone with my other 3 kids. I wouldn't allow Shawn to be a part of my life or pregnancy because I had 2 people stalking me and trying to hurt me and I thought 1 of them was him...it turned out that it wasn't, but 2 former friends.
I just couldn't get over the cheating from my ex and then some other things happened to me and I knew that my marriage was over. Shawn reached out to me shortly after my marriage ended and we have been together ever since. He loves all of my kids as their own and when the oldest 3's dad hasn't been nice, he has stepped up to the plate. I get asked "is he just a rebound?" and I just reply with "Third times a charm!". He is an amazing dad to Gabriel and my other kids call him "Papa".
I can't wait to get on with my new life with him. We are finally going to start over together. Life is already amazing but I can't wait for what's to come. I know things will be tough at first getting back on my feet, but I'm strong enough to do it. Every bad thing that I have went through has made me stronger. I have shed less tears each day and I am fighting hard to become who I am. I am going to start nursing school when I get moved and get my kids settled in. Shawn and I are already planning on getting married but after I graduate nursing school and my divorce is finalized of course. This is my time...this is my life...This is my HAPPY ENDING!

June 2012

Sunday, July 01, 2012

June went okay. I didn't work out like I wanted to. It seems as though I am exhausted all the time and I have lost my motivation. However, I did lose 11 lbs!!! This was done through changing my eating habits. I decided from now on I will make homemade meals and try to stay away from the processed stuff. I still haven't given up my Diet Dr. Pepper though. I think I will work on that for July. I have also decided that the new McDonald's Chocolate Chip Frappe is the DEVIL! Yes I said it...they are EVIL! This has become my weakness!!!! lol

Here's to an even better July 2012

    That's an awesome idea Dar! I think I may have to make that a big goal for August!

Today...

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Today I will clean my house, make a few hairbows, pick my daughter up from the bus stop, and I will go to the gym and workout for 30-45 mins.

I will drink my water (though I despise it!) and try to watch what I eat.

I have a weight loss challenge that I am starting on June 1st with some of my Mommy friends on Cafemom and I would love to help my team win. I also have to buy a scale on Friday :) My boys decided to pour fingernail polish all over mine and then they broke it.

I miss myself and I need to find me again.

Memorial Day

Monday, May 28, 2012

When I wake up in a few hours, it will be Memorial Day...a brand new day. I am starting back my walking routine and I am going to add some ab exercises in there too. My little girl, Chloe, is my walking partner and when I go to the gym, I have a friend, Christine, that works out with me. Chloe is such a little motivator at just 6 years old. The other day, she ran 1/2 a mile straight! She is going to be a runner I think!
I am aiming to start drinking at least a gallon of water a day...that might be a little hard for me to do at first because I hate water but my body needs it. I am also going to try and eat healthier but I will not deny myself anything because that only leads to me wanting bad things more which is disastrous for me!
My ultimate goal is to run the Disney Princess half marathon at Disney in Florida and to run the Rock N Roll half marathon in Va Beach, VA. These are tentative goals that I want to accomplish 1 day and I am not setting a time limit. That way I do not set myself up to fail.
My ultimate goal is to look drop dead gorgeous at my wedding (he hasn't proposed yet but he's told me its coming 1 day when I least expect it). Before I get remarried again, I do want to get fit and healthy, and finish nursing school! So here's to a great start to a new challenge for myself!

    Not good at all...I received some terrible news and it just pretty much blew my Monday out of the water.
