Every little pound counts

Monday, March 14, 2011

This week I lost 1 lb. I have to be happy about that though because last week I lost 0, and If I want to be completely honest with myself I probably put on 1 maybe 2. I have taken on 2 challenges. 1 is to work out for 10 min a day. I have been doing really well with that. If I don't get to go to Zumba I am on my wii fit after my little one goes to bed do at least 30 min of exercise. I am starting to feel the increase of energy from it and that is really rewarding. the 2nd is to lose 5 lbs by the end of march. I think I will succeed with that as well.

My husband has been gone for the past week and he will not be back home till his friday. He has been at Fort Lewis for training. It has been keeping hit totally busy but I know that he likes it. He is in the National Guard and sometimes I think he is only 100% comfortable when he is consumed in the military life style. He used to be active in the army after high school but got out after his 3 years were us. Over the years he has gone back to the reserves and now that national guard. He would go back active but they wont let him because he has to many dependents/baby mama's as he put it. 3 with an ex wife, 1 with a one night stand that he barely ever gets to see (thats a long story) and now me.

I am a little nervous of when he gets home. I always get in to a routine when he is gone. then when he comes back he always messes that routine up. Like right now I am staying up late doing wii fit before bed. Well when he is home he stays up late playing call of duty, both machines are hooked up to the same TV. I would be happy to set the wii us else where but he lost the cable we need to hook it up to any otheR TV, I am sure I can get another one but we have been talking about getting a new cable for over a year now and it still has not happened. I am a little more fired up about it now, so if i decide to get it done it will probably happen.

Anyway, I am really excited for my DH to come home, I am just a little anxious about it too. we will see what friday brings. He is probably going to be tired the first few days back so hopefully he will go to bed early, and I will be able to go to Zumba more when he is home to watch the baby, I forgot about that.

So for now I am going to focus on my exercise and my food and deal with the future when it gets here.

    emoticon on the loss!! You are right, every pound counts. You are now 1 pound closer to your goal. It does get tough when you have a schedule and it gets changed. My hubby is a big XBox player, but we have a time set. If I am up he doesn't get it until 11:30, if I go to bed or don't want the tv then he can have it. Maybe you and your hubby can work out some kind of schedule so you can get in your workouts. emoticon
