Hi chickies! I have been so stressed out lately. It seems that my hubby may not be getting a reenlistment bonus because of a new money saving rule beginning June 5th. Apparently it takes a long time to process the paperwork so his may not be done in time. The thing is, that was a LOT of money, and basically our sole reason for staying in the military. My hubby wants to get out and finish his degree if the bonus doesn’t go through, and I kind of agree, but I am nervous about being our sole support. I’m not even working now! We’d move to Texas and he’d have the GI Bill to pay for school, but still. We don’t even have any money saved up! So, needless to say, this next two weeks is going to be heinous. And, we aren’t sure if we chose not to reenlist if they will still send us to Japan, since he’ll only have one year left on his contract. So we still have to prepare for that. And part of me wants to stay in just to go to Japan! AGHHHHH See how back and forth I am. It’s ridiculous.
Happily my weight has not gone up at all. I weighed myself at my walking buddy’s house after our walk today and I’m steady. Not good, but not bad either. It inspired me to step it up a notch. I got back into my weights routine today and I feel GREAT (and wobbly!). I did my legs today and OMG, I am so over lunges. How come they get so freaking hard after you don’t do them for a month? Sheesh.
Food is good lately, at least for the most part. I bought a ton of fruit and veggies yesterday at the farmer’s market and spent a couple hours, literally, just cleaning, peeling, chopping, etc. The good news is YUM! my fridge is full of great stuff to snack on. I’m thinking some watermelon is calling my name now…
B: homemade oat blueberry muffin (about 100 cal w/4g protein) and 1/2 banana
L: almond butter and honey sammy, lots of cantaloupe
S:oh this is bad… oat blueberry muffin, watermelon, most of a bag of popcorn (kettlecorn-low fat w/splenda), banana w/ almond butter… over the course of 3 hours.
D: 1/2 sammy with dijon, turkey and romaine and some strawberries… and, about to go to McD’s and get an ice cream cone.
water: about 80 oz so far
Ok, pretty sure I am done eating. I had a yummy cone and then since there was no play place (which was the actual intent of the visit) we drove home and walked to the park about a half a mile away. I could barely walk right thanks to the hell which are lunges! And then? The boys made me play tag, where I got schooled by a 4 year old, so imagine how much the 6 and 10 year olds shredded me! I am pooped! Off to give the men a bath and then jump in the shower and bed! Night, chickies!
