OK, catch up time!

Well I know it has been forever, but like I said before my life isn't all that exciting. However, alot has happened since my last post so let me get started.

My husband finally returned from his second deployment! He came back on advon team, which is an early home team, so he was home in April. We have had to readjust and get back to a normal routine I guess you would say.
We have just been enjoying our time with our friends and family. My sister and her fiance came out in June, I road back with them to Iowa so I could be there for my sister's bridal shower. I flew back then to Colorado.  We also went up north here in Colorado to visit our friends for the 4th of July! That was a nice visit as always. I seriously love our friendship with them, we always pick up right where we left off.
The next day my mom,dad and brother were out here in Colorado visiting with us. That was a nice visit just relaxed and did a few things. They decided to come out one last time before we move. Yes, here it is the big news!

Before Jeff came back from deployment we found out that he came down on orders to go back to Ft. Leonard Wood. He got orders to be an instructor down there, so we are headed back that way the middle of October. I wasn't very excited about this at all...but I have accepted it and will make the best of it. I will miss my friends here (however they are all going somewhere too) but this is part of this lifestyle.

Besides all that we will be busy busy before the move. We are getting ready to go on leave and head back to Iowa for a couple of weeks to spend time with family and of course celebrate my sister getting married. Once we get back we only have two months left before we are looking at moving. AHHH!!! I know everything will work out how its meant to. Other than all this my life is the same-ol. Hope you all are doing wonderful!

Well Hello =)

I know I suck at keeping this up-to-date, and I am sorry for that. However, to be honest, my life is pretty boring and usually the same ol routine everyday!

I have started a new work-out adventure! I am now attending Imprint Fitness boot-camp 4 times a week. So any of you in the Colorado Springs area here is link to check them out. ( Imprint Fitness and here is their blog also Imprint Fitness Blog.) They are amazing and very welcoming.

As for the rest of my life its the same stuff everyday. Workout, clean, school work, dog park, friends aka family, and relaxing. So nothing to exciting here, just passing the time until my husband comes home.  It can't come soon enough. In fact, March has taken FOREVER to end. Anyone else feel that way bout March?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It has been like summer here lately so I am enjoying the nice weather!

Sorry its been awhile.

I am sorry its been awhile.
Anyways since the last time I got to spend two wonderful weeks with my husband.
Our R&R was great. We just relaxed and didn't do much.. He left like the second week of Feb. I now just can't wait till this deployment is over. =)

Anyways besides that my life is pretty much the same thing everyday. Workout, school work and occupy my time with great company.

I hope all of you are doing well! =)

I guess it wasn't safe to say...

All week a few of us have been working on welcome home signs for the single guys coming home. People have been rushing around the company to get things ready for them coming home to only find out today that they will be staying there for the full year.
This was shocker I think to everyone at first. My husband even had his flight itinerary for the next day. But after the shock, it become very clear that we all knew, ok maybe just a few of us knew, this was going to happen. I mean come on they didn't even have orders to come home. They were only slotted for transportation to bring them home. That's what they were going off of. They were suppose to get cut their orders today but instead....they got the news that will not be heading home.
Does it suck? Well maybe for some, but for me I will still be seeing him soon. He will still be getting his R&R that he would of originally got. Their time left in country is really not that long compared to what we have completed already. They are in a safe, non-combative area. It could be a lot worse.
So,  I have decided to take the positive path on this on. In fact, I love the positive path! =)

I think its safe to say!

Well I think it's safe to say now, that my husband is no longer coming home on R&R. He was suppose to be home this month for his R&R. In fact, in 4 days he should of been on his way here. Instead we will have no R&R and that's because the guys are coming early.
HOOOOORRRRAAAYYYY! So excited to have them home. We all can't wait!

I now feel like I have a million in one things to do. I am tackling my list of things to do little by little everyday!

I can't wait to go pick up my husband and welcome him home! =)

Ok lets try this again.

I have decided to restart my reset on the P.I.N.K Method. You can find the link in previous post.

Today starts day 1 of 14 of the reset. Wishing myself luck! The first couple of days are the hardest. I am thankful that this time I am doing it with my best friend. Its nice to know I have someone else there  with me.

We got this! Stay tuned to see how its going. =)

I had to share!

Thanks to my best friend for sending me a YouTube video, I have found a new and upcoming singer. Who happens to also fight for this country. Leaving behind his friends and family. I feel like his songs give a good idea to how the soldier feels.

He is so amazing! I could listen to him all day long! On Dec 28th this is what he said "Tomorrow I am headed back to the studio around 1200ish to FINISH the tracks on Fallen Soldier, and THEN, HOPEFULLY, within a week or so, IT WILL BE ON iTUNES!!!! Remember, The more you buy the better and spread the word the better, because Im giving half the profit of each download to a non profit organization strictly for military rehabilitation."-Nathan Fair
An amazing singer and he is going to give back to help the military members who gave so much for us. See he is amazing!

As you can see his name is Nathan Fair. Here is the link to his Facebook fan pageif you want to check that out, but before you do that listen to the two songs I have below for you to listen to.  He is pretty amazing. Then if you like what you hear spread the word and buy his songs on iTunes when they hit there!


P.I.N.K Phase 1

I have finished my reset phase. I wish I could say I completed this with success but I would be lying to you. I did fine the first 7 days. Once Christmas day came I fell off the wagon. I had pasta and all the yummy stuff that comes with it. :sigh:

I probably should of started my last 7 days over but I just decided to keep going. Today I started phase 1 of the P.I.N.K Method. Today I get to have more food and I got to start working out again, Finally!

I can tell its been awhile since I lasted worked out, because today seriously kicked my butt. It was nice to get back at it though. I am looking forward to this phase. I am also focusing on the diet part and giving it my all.

Overall weight loss from reset only 2.3 pounds. This is a very sad number when most people lose 10 pounds. Maybe I should start over? I think I'll just keep moving on and give it 100% from here on out!

I hope you all had a great day!
