Personal Trainer!!!

So for the last few months I have been debating gettign a personal trainer. Well I did get one and today was my first day working out with her. The trainer did do a fit test with me today. I had to do a 3 minute step up progrm to see how my heart was after resting. Then I did pushups which I did 19 of and had to do situps and I only 7 of those. She did work me out a litle bit and she kicked my butt. It felt good. I am so excited to see what happens.

Oh my weight is the bain of my existence. I have been all over the place with my weight. My goal for the last 2 months was 150. Yet last month I only got down to 156.5 and this month who knows where I will end up.

I started at 156.5 got all the way down to 151.5 and then have hit 156 again. I am self sabotage myself though. I get so worried that I won't be able to maintain the weight once I GET there so I let myself get to a weight where I can maintain it.

How to I self sabotage u may be wondering. Well this week I hit 151.5 and so instead of being happy about it I allowed myself to think i could not do it. Instead of eating healthy I had alot of cake and ice cream and did a lot of snacking which for me is a no no.

My plan right now is to work on getting my eating back in control. I have been hitting the gym as many as 5 times a week for up to 2 hours. Tomorrow I plan on going to the gym and doing weight training for 1 hour, doing the treadmill for 15 minutes, elliptical for 33 minutes, and then doing 15 minutes on the bike. On Tuesday I am planning on taking a boot camp class that is offered and then getting on the stair stepper for 20 minutes. Wednesday will be another day like Monday expect that I will add fine minutes to the. On Thursday I am leaving for Florida but when I am there I am going to try to get some running in. That way I am still staying active.

On Mondays of each week I will update my weight, and a few measurements.

Matt Update

Well I have a few updates on my sexy husband.

He is doing good over in hell. He has been very busy with the different missions he goes on.

He will be coming home sometime in June for his 18 days of leave which we are all looking forward to. He will have to go back to Iraq until February or March time frame but we are hopeful that it could be sooner.

Unfortunately I received a phone call from Matt this morning to inform me that he had been hit by 2 IED'S. He is doing fine. He has another concussion but was able to walk away from it unhurt. There were a few injuries but everyone made it alive. (Brandi, would have called but has been a emotional day).

While I am proud f my husband and other men and women who support and protect us, yet these types of events remind me that life is precious and to take nothing for granted. There have been so many things running thru my mind in that last 12 hours that it has made me realize that I need to forgive people for the things that have been done to me. This even includes forgiving my mother. I will never have that opportunity but I will not hold onto something just because I was hurt by them. I urge everyone to forgive the people that have done u wrong. Life is too short and knowing that I may never get to see my husband again reminds me that I need to live in the now and not the future.

School Update

Well I am finally done with another semester of school and I can say this has been my hardest semester as of yet. With Matt having to leave for war again it was very hard never knowing if I would see him again. Yet I managed to make it thru and even took 6 classes(18 hours). In all I got 4 A' and 2 B's but I feel that one of my "b"s should have been an "a" but ol well. My GPA for this semester was a 3.667 which made me eligible for the dean's list a 2ND time.

In other school news, I start my field placement in the fall and will be working 2 days a week at ACS or army community services which helps military families. I will be working in the new par net support which will help the children get the best out of life. I am so happy to be starting the next chapter of my life and I am looking forward to what is in store.
