I just got done working out with Jillian Michaels and she is really kicking my butt! I love how it makes me feel, but oh how I hate it while I am doing it. I can feel myself getting stronger. I don't know if it shows on my body yet, but I feel it. I haven't started the couch to 5k yet, because the workout I'm doing with Jillian Michaels is enough for right now. However, maybe when it gets cooler here in Alabama I will start trying it. I definitely want to run before my husband gets back and I want to do it outside. I can not run on a treadmill. I don't know what it is, but it makes me nauseous! It's hard enough to exercise, so I can't be sick to my stomach while I'm doing it!

I'm doing good. We are almost into triple digits with this deployment! I can hardly believe it. My husband is doing good as well. I will update you guys soon on the whole promotion thing that's been going on. I hope the rest of the week is great for everybody!

WOW, I can't even believe that I just typed that sentence. It literally seems like just a week ago I was writing the post about being two months down and here I am now writing about three. A lot has went on during the last month. Most of the stuff that has went on, I've already talked about. What I haven't talked about, I'm still not talking about. I'm going to focus on positive things for this post, though!

Oh, and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post. I am looking into starting the couch to 5k next Monday. I will be posting about my progress. I only had one coke yesterday. It was a generic Diet Sprite. I had 68 ounces of water. I'm not going to lie... a few times I thought I was going to float away! I don't know how I am suppose to drink 80 ounces of water a day. But, I'm going to drink all of the water I can stand!

I have worked out every day this week, and after I finish the post I am going to work out. Today, I am going to do Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones. It's hard, but I do feel better once I have worked out for the day. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about running and working out. Maybe I will work out in the morning, and do the running around 1900 or so. It's still light out, but it's not as HOT as it is during the day.

I can't believe in seven short days we will be in triple digits of this deployment! I'm grateful for everyone in the blogging world. It has made this deployment easier. Thanks!

And a picture!

My sweet nephew born on 6-8-10! What a great birthday!!

I know it's been a little while since I've updated. To tell the truth, some things are going on that I can't or don't want to talk about. It affects both me and my husband, and maybe one day I will tell everyone. But for now, I'm not. I'm ok, my husband is ok and my furbabies are ok.

Today, instead of a Wordless Wednesday, I'm going to blog. During the 3 years that DH and I have been married, I've gained a little weight. I guess it's easy to do with moving, unpacking, finding jobs, taking care of everything, etc. So I'm trying to lose some weight. I want to have it gone before my husband comes home for R&R. I have plenty of time for it. I want to start running, and I got running shoes for it. However, I'm not much of a runner. So, if you have any tips for me... please feel free to leave a comment! I also have some Jillian Michael's workout videos that I've been doing and Hip Hop Abs. I tend to eat more on the healthy side anyway, but I do need to increase my water intake. If I drink a coke (FYI: I'm from the South, everything is a coke, but I'm talking about Pepsi, Coke, Dr Pepper, etc), it's normally either a diet drink or it doesn't have caffeine. I think I just like the carbonation mostly! I'm hoping that by putting this out for everyone to read, I will stay more motivated to do everything!

I'm not telling my weight or where I want my weight to be, but I will tell you that I want to lose 20 pounds. I'm hoping that it will be fairly easy, but I guess we will see.

I hope everyone has been having a great week, and it continues into the weekend!! Take Care!!

I have nothing to put here....

I know it's been a while since I updated. Things have been crazy the past week or so. I had a doctor's appointment Tuesday, my nephew was born Tuesday, I submerged in school work to get it done before the end of the month, my DH is not happy at all, and I'm trying to deal with everything! It's been a lot of work, but I'm surviving. I'm taking things one day at a time, but I will be so glad when this deployment is over. Maybe by then, my sweet husband won't be mad all the time.... Well, that probably won't happen, but I can wish right?!?

I'm doing well, and really I don't have anything to write about. The news that I had from the last post... DH was promoted. However, now they are trying to tell him that he's not promotable. So, while doing everything I mentioned above, I also have to call DH's old unit in Colorado to see if they could send DH his board paperwork proving that he went to the board and was promotable. Has this ever happened to anybody else? My poor husband is just about the best soldier in his unit, and they are pulling this crap on him? Every other person that got promoted has already been pinned, but my husband. How does that make him feel? He's pissed off beyond belief, but (and he hasn't told me this) I'm sure it also makes him feel like shit. How can you promote shitbag soldiers who don't do crapy, and not promote the soldier that does everything that's asked of him and does it better than asked? I don't understand, but I'm pretty mad at the Army right now. They aren't getting a happy birthday from me today. Anyway, I'm going to end my rant because could go on and on for days.

I hope that everyone had a great weekend, a great day (so far) and has a great week! Take Care!!

Hello Blog World! I'm sorry about the lack of updates, but I do get online and read other blogs. There really hasn't been too much to update on. I'm so lost in my school work, but I'm getting there. I think I can be through with it on time, and then I have to study to take the test. FUN!!

Today, I got to meet my sweet nephew. He was born around 0830 (6-8-10, how awesome is that date?!?), weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. He is just precious and he's already an Alabama fan! ROLL TIDE! I will try to get a picture up of him and myself. I can't wait to hold him again.

I got good news about my husband, and I will share as soon as I am able to!!

I hope all is well with everyone! Take care, and have a great rest of the week!!
