Link to the last log, which in turn has links to all my other logs!
I'm 31, married, 2 kids.
My hubby has been deployed since June of last year. He came home for a break in August, and is due to come home NEXT MONTH for another break. Then back at it(again) til June.
Actually, he was set to come back in May, but apparently a guy who just got back into the states tried to make a 14 hr drive home by himself..He didn't make it.
So now 'they,' want to make sure people coming back are mentally ok and rested before resuming there family life, etc..
This has been the hardest deployment on us all. No way around it though, just gotta get through it!
I've spent the better part of the last two years trying(and somewhat succeeding) shedding extra weight.
I say somewhat, because I'm still not satisfied. I guess thats what keeps us going..to be better than we thought we could! Sometimes I feel like I'm just a smaller version of my overweight, soft self.
I want to be strong, but I also want to LOOK like I work as hard as I think I do. The dieting has taken care of the fat loss, but I'm still trying to figure out training styles to help achieve the all around package.
I bought a bikini yesterday to help keep me focused. eek! I've never worn a bathing suit in public, much less a bikini!
So I'm soldiering on..
I want to get stronger, maintain my results thus far, but to improve upon them as well!
