Update!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Hi all!

It's been WAY too long, I know. I've had so many adventures of late, and just two weeks ago my hubby finally returned home from deployment!

Recap:

My parents came to visit in Feb and we had a really great time! My mom and I went to Disneyland - hooray! - and it was sooooo much fun! They were in San Diego for a week and then I drove up with them to San Fransisco for a weekend and it was amazing!!! I haven't been since I was a child. I have to admit, I gained a few lbs and got up to 153 again, but as soon as I came home I started eating right again and am now down to 141.6. :)

The last weekend of Feb, my hubby came home!!! He actually came home a week earlier than I expected and went to great lengths to surprise me :) :) :) Best surprise ever!

Since then, the family I worked for all year last year moved and I have been searching for jobs, with much success! I am working 5 mornings a week as a caregiver for a wonderful quadraplegic man who lives less than a mile away and also Downtown, so I get to walk to and from work, which is great. And I just accepted a position with a blind girl for another two days a week. I'm feeling quite blessed!

This week, hubby and I are driving to AZ to see his family and for me to meet with my old pre-health advisor at ASU to talk about Nursing Schools.

As for fitness, I've not been to Bikram in a month! :( I miss it and am starting again when we are in AZ since there is a place right by my in-laws. It's just hard bc the place I go to out here is 25mins away and it's difficult to get back into the swing of things with hubby home, you know? But I've been walking lots! We've gone to the zoo a few times, too! :)

Nutrition-wise, I'm doing great! I have some slip-ups, like last week when I gained back 3 of the lbs I lost and had to work to re-lose them, but for the most part, I'm on track for once! Super excited about that. I have a bikini picked out for the summer and I am DYING to get fit for it so I can get it and wear it!!! I'll post pics when I manage that ;)

I hope you are all doing fabulous! I'm going to try to get on here once a week for now and hopefully work my way up from there!

    I'm a military mom, my daughter and son in law are both Air Force officers. He is currently in Afghanistan, and she goes next month. So I KNOW how wonderful it is for you to have your hubby home.

    Thanks to HIM for his service, and to you too.
