I can't believe that in one week from today I'll be hurrying my hubby out to the car so that we can get me to the airport on time for my flight. I'm heading out to the Fort Bragg area to go see my son (my baby!) who is in the Army! He's been back from his deployment in Iraq since June and I still haven't seen him. It makes my eyes tear up just to think about seeing him and grabbing him for a long hug.
In the early stages of planning for this trip I had it packed full each of the 5 days I will be there but things have changed ... as things always do ... and now I'm actually looking forward to having a little more of a relaxed trip. No military ball after all which means I don't have to take that dress in that I borrowed, don't have to pack it or the accessories that "make" an outfit. I'm thinking that maybe my hubby's family from Kentucky that are driving over to see me could come for 2 days instead of just one ... I know they would LOVE to see my son for longer as well.
On a different note, it occurred to me last night as I was drifting off to sleep that it's been a long time since I haven't had to S-Q-U-E-E-Z-E my work out into my day. I was thinking the run I want to go on today and reveling in the fact I can go whenever I WANT TO today! It feels so good to WANT TO go work out ... to enjoy the sensation of working my body. In my weight class yesterday I was kind of taken back by the whining of the other two people in the class. We PAY to attend these classes ... we aren't forced by anyone other than ourselves to show up. Why whine??? Why not give 110% of what you have to give with a great attitude as you work towards the quality of Life you WANT to have??? I don't get it ...
I love my weight class ... Love it ... almost as much as I love the feeling I get at the end of a good run! My body shape is changing almost weekly, even though it might be hard to tell from the outside. My biceps are starting to actually show and so are my triceps! I can feel the muscles in my back and my calves have developed a "two level" set of muscles in the back. It is amazing! I've pretty much stopped weighing myself because I can tell by my clothing that I'm doing ok. It might even be time to start looking for a few new things!
On the job side of things, I'm still not in love with my new schedule but I'm working on my attitude since I CAN control that. The bonus for me is that I have been teaching A TON lately and that is the passion that fills me up! I love dumping knowledge into other people ... LOL ... whether they want it or not!
I'm totally looking forward to a great run, a good nap and time to learn more about how to use my new Kindle Fire! Technology is so cool --- once you learn how to use it! Woohoo ....
One week ... I CAN'T WAIT!!!
