Finally we've been given a date!! My husband is returning from deployment!!! The excitement sets in!! My heart is racing and every night it gets harder to sleep because I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas day! I started to think about all the projects I need to finish and then in the back of my mind I secretly giggle knowing some of those projects will go on that very long “honey do” list that's been sitting on the fridge for months! I sat back and realize that after months of struggling to find a routine, I have finally almost mastered it and now the life we've become accustomed to will once again be rumbled!!!
That’s in itself is enough to scare most humans!
Now wait it get's better;
I took a long look in the mirror and almost started to give thanks to the exhaustion and lack of time that have forced me to run to take out and drive thru's much more then I should have! I was hit with the simple realization that walking up the stairs has started to feel like a mini marathon! I wondered if I even remember how to do my hair and makeup, and oh boy let’s not even talk about shaving the legs!!!
Yes, I had let myself go, not because I wanted to but because I had to in order to get it all done! Besides let’s face it, hair, makeup, shaving, working out, takes time and time is one thing most moms just don’t have much of!
In realization that I felt far from female anymore I decided to jump on the New Year’s resolution band wagon!
Starting the 1st of the year I said "move over gym intimidation, exhaustion, and crappy eating this gal means business!" With a new pair of sneakers and my new attitude I am motivated more then ever to sign back into my feminine side! The end is near, my husband is returning!
I have built a support team of a few bad ass women with the same goals!!!
