I’m sorry this year has been a roller coaster of events. From the husband bing deployed and every emotion that went along with it.
Worrying about exercise and food is no longer on my mind every minute of the day. My husbands safety has been though.
There comes a point when you realize, there are more important things to worry about than being thin and in shape and “strong”.. I’ll give you a glimpse at how I have been looking recently
Okay so the “today” one is a little off by a few weeks. But just note I am wearing the same dress plus 25 extra pounds. Yeah 25 lbs.
But I’m happier, more confident, and living without fear. Hell yes to that!
There were some triathlons I signed up to do this year along with a half marathon but I found my true interests are with lifting. Triathlons hold a special place in my heart with my husband. I realized that when I couldn’t bring myself to train for the first one of the season. I accepted it and moved on.
As many of you may or may not know, it has been 8 long months without my husband home. I set the computer aside and lived life. I made friends, worked out, took long walks, and healed myself.
I couldn’t bring myself to blog about the deployment because some days all I did was cry, other days I didn’t want to eat, some days I was so busy the room was spinning, and other days I just slept the day away.
and possibly came a slightly obsessed cat lady….
If you follow my instagram you know… Layla. My other non human half.
I am going to now start blogging about my experience for the other military wives who may be going through this one day.
I hope you stick around and come back a little more often I promise I won’t abandon you for so long ;)
