So, last week my fiance Brandon had to work out of town Monday through Thursday and now this is another week he will be gone. I am getting really emotional about this one though because before he comes home Thursday I am suppose to be leaving for NC to be with some family. That will mean 7 whole days away from him.. In the 5 years I have been with him, the longest I have ever not seen him is 3 nights... So, needless to say he left this morning and I almost immediately called him crying my eyes out. I'm going to miss him so much.
With him gone though, it does allow me to really focus on my goals throughout the week. I need to stay on task before this wedding dress search at the end of February. I have a goal in mind and I am looking to acheive it. Day one of this week was a success and I stayed under my calorie range!!! WAHOO! I didn't get exercise in but I will promise myself to do that tomorrow along with staying under my target calorie goal.
So, tonight on TV I watched the Bachelor... One of my favorite shows. I DO NOT miss it.. This season a girl, Emily, really caught my attention. She is so classy and has such a gut wrenching story. She was engagedto be married at 19, her fiance was in racing and she got sick one weekend so she couldn't go with him to the races and on his way to the race the plane crashed and her fiance died. 4 days later she found out she was pregnant with his child. What an amazing story. Of course it brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it but even more has brought tears to my eyes tonight as I realized who her fiance was. The son of Rick Hendricks. This is the big man of racing, someone my grandfather has worked for FOR years! I have met this man and been to his races, even though not directly everything he has built has been very much a part of my life so the realization really hit home today...
Anyway, to liven myself up before I go to bed I am goign to watch one more show and snooze off! Happy weight loss everyone!
