It's been a few more weeks since I've written. I've been really bad about keeping this updated. :) I'll break it down per person!

Mike- He's kicking weight's butt & I'm proud. He's sticking to his eating plan & I'm surprised how strict he is with himself.  He got the permanent profile & HOPEFULLY will pass the PT test this coming up week. He also needs to get his army driver's license for his Ft. Irwin trip. He'll leave Saturday or Sunday for a month training thing at Ft. Irwin. It makes me sad. We haven't been separated since we moved here. I know it's only a month but it's weird. Kinda emotional.

Me- Well..... eating right & exercise.....not going so well. I'm trying to eat right but it's been hard. Certain foods just don't sounds good anymore & it's hard to eat them. I also can't eat as much as I use too. If I over stuff, I get sick. Exercise! Yeah..... I have been so exhausted for the last 10-ish days. The first whole week we were back I was a cleaning machine. My house had to be clean & everyday I cleaned something. Good cleaning too. Last week, it took work just to do the minimum stuff & it hasn't really gotten better. I'm keeping up on laundry & dishes. Still cooking dinner & all the normal wifely stuff. Just nothing extra. I'm going to try my best to do Curves M,W,F and do our gym dates those days too. I will try to make myself walk the dogs in between those 2 things. I can & I will do this. I've lost a few lbs since getting back too. Not as much as I'd hope but oh well. I'm still about 3 lbs away from 40 lost. And if I kick butt this week I may get close. My regular doctor I love went on vacation in November & I got transferred to another one. Tomorrow is my first appt with a new one. I have high hopes! :)

This year has started out great & I know it'll continue to be great.  I can't wait to see what the future holds. Oh, Hersh & Cinn are good. Spoiled brats still. :)

It's been a while since I wrote. Not too much going on but I'll summarize what's been happening the last few weeks.

Home for Christmas. It was great but got old quick. We spent lots of time with family & even took the nephews to a children's museum. I could go way farther into the nephews & our experiences but I shall not. Not all were good. Christmas didn't feel the same as it use too and Mike & I aren't sure we'll go back this year. We may do our own thing here for Christmas. I tried to stay on the healthy eating kick but it was hard with going back & forth between families' homes. I managed to only gain back 3 lbs overall. We did walk a few times, at least 25% of the time. Which isn't great but better than nada!

Mike has joined the healthy eating kick. I've had a hard time getting back into it though. I'm trying though & am doing mostly good. I've gone to the gym once but honestly it's been hectic for the last week. My gym buddy had an appt on Friday so we went Thursday. I had medical stuff going on yesterday so we couldn't go then. We are going Wednesday & Friday and will continue M,W,F every week unless someone has an appt or whatever. I'm starting Curves again tomorrow too. 5 am wake up. Yucky! Haha! I will get back into the hang of it. I want to get healthy for myself & any future kids we may have. It's really important to me. Oh, I had my lowest weigh-in last Friday. I was .1 away from 36 lbs lost. Hoping I lose 1-2 more this week. My goal is 40 by Feb 3rd! :)

Other than that, not much really going on. It seems like it's going to be a great year. Things are finally looking up for us and it's really nice. I can't wait to see how things change, including myself. :)
