After an amazing birthday weekend reality has started to settle in. School is coming to a close, one more month to go and I have been severly slacking. Work has me so busy I rarely have time to do my homework. Then I try to cram all my school work in on sunday's and barely pass my exams. I am so looking forward to school to be finished

Deployment number 2 will be starting in three weeks. It's only for three months so in reality it is not that long. As many of you can relate, you never want to see your hubby go. And why is it that when your hubby leaves, all your friend's hubbys come home. Go figure. I will just use this deployment to save money, pay off debt, catch up on my stack of fun books to read and get into shape for summer

That leaves me to point out another thing I have been slacking on. One of my new years resolutions was to get into shape. I bought The Shred by Jillian Michaels and sadly to say that DVD is still unopened on top of my tv. I am happy to report that I do hit the gym at least 3 times a week and started taking a spin class. My eating habits however leave something to be desired. Being out of town last week, celebrating both the hubs and my bday last weekend and this weekend caused me to gain an additional 5lbs. OUch
Starting tomorrow I am kicking my butt into gear and hitting up the gym. I then plan on starting the shred and completly changing my eating habits. That is one thing I am looking forward to with the hubby being gone. No peer pressure causing me to eat Mcdonalds or taco bell or whatever else he decides to bring home because he wasn't in the mood for what we have in the house. Men with their amazing metabolism!!

So that's it, starting tomorrow it's a whole new me!!
Also I saw from one of my friend's blog Mrs. Cass href="">

  1. Good plans to accomplish during the deployment! I will be thinking of you...enjoy these next few weeks together!

  2. My mom LOVES that saying! And the Shred is amazing. I didn't get results quite as good as I wanted because I eat candy ALL DAY LONG haha...but I'm going to get strong about it when I get home from vaca

  3. Aw my hubs is leaving for Boot Camp in three week I'm so not ready for him to leave yet but oh well..I thought that was a great giveaway as well lol..

  4. Good luck with The Shred! It's tough, but it works! :) Sorry to hear about the upcoming deployment, but you have a great attitude. I hope it goes by really fast!

  5. Glad you had a great bday weekend! Sounds like some great things to work on during the deployment and it will make the time to so quickly!
