Breathe, breathe, I can stop crying now. I interrupted my vigorous exercising to come downstairs when DH came home to see what was happening. I GOT MY PASSPORT, I'M FLYING! My visa is also good until December! WOO HOO, of course I'm not staying that long but it's nice to know just in case.
It looks like I have to bust my a$$ now to find things I need to pack, clean the house & all. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA!
THANK YOU to all of you who prayed and sent strong vibes for me, they worked!

I don't know if I can even begin to explain things but I'll try. I have a passport, you need a passport to be here (Saudi Arabia, YES, I'M AMERICAN) In order to leave this country you must have a visa to either leave permanently or leave and come back. I have to have what is called an exit/re-entry visa so I can leave Saudi and come back in 5 months. This procedure usually takes a week or less sometimes. You CAN get an emergency visa in 24 hours. Well my husband took my passport to the company office 2 weeks ago to get a visa in my passport so I can leave Sunday night/Monday morning. It is Friday night and I don't have my passport. This has nothing to do with the American government or the American Consulate/Embassy, the Saudi immigration office is the one who issues the visas. Our weekends are Thrusday and Friday so maybe there is a very slim hope it will come but the office said they have don't know when it will be back. The airline am flying has 2 flights a week out of here back to the USA, 2:10AM Monday & Thursday mornings. I am on the MOnday flight, Thursdays flight is overbooked and there is no way I'd get on that flight. I am just so upset, hurt, heartbroken. I want to go HOME. I have a new car waiting to be signed for and picked up, I have kids to hug and kiss, I have dr.s appointments, I have friends to meet, I have mail waiting that will now be backed up. I'm just devistated.
ON top of that, DH might have to go on a business trip. I didn't do grocery shopping because I thought I was leaving and I've used up stuff. It just sucks right now.
So I did my exercises this evening. 45 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds with extra intensity, the bootcamp video work out for today, another booty ball workout, leg lifts, up and down stairs.
I just want to scream, cry and beat on somebody.

4 more days and I will be home in the USA. Todays flight landed on time in the USA so I am hoping mine will leave on time and arrive on time so I can make my connection.
Today I did the bootcamp workout, 32 minutes WATP, 5 minutes of vigorus step aerobics, a couple other stretches with the bands, up and down stairs a few times, changed linens on a large bed using stretching moves and then a few minutes on the tread mill! PHEW!

I have kept up every day with the boot camp workouts and challenges, some days I do extra workouts and I do cardio every day that I can, which is 6 days a week. I see so many that have posted about their progress and mine is 0, none! I measured yesterday and no inches lost, I gained 3 pounds, lost 1. I'm trying to kick it up these last couple days I'm here until I get home and setteled which probably won't be until next Wednesday. BUT I'M NOT GIVING UP! I may just combine this boot camp band exercises with the New YOU Boot camp ball exercises.
I did do the exercises for today plus 45 minutes of cardio, a dumbbell workout from another boot camp plus extra upper body dumbbell exercises. I gotta get pumped up to carry my luggage, LOL.
So now it's 5 days till I"m home, 20 prayer calls after tonight's 2 that are left. I'm not packed yet.

Today's Day at a Glance Calendar note isays:
Watch your portions. While big portions might keep your wallet full, they'll also add to your waistline. Split large entrees with a friend and just say no to super-sizing. I already do watch my portions. Sometimes it seems small and other times it is larger.
