My Busy Bee

Here she is,
my 8 month old.
She's non stop now.
pulling up & standing up with support,
kissing the baby in the mirror.
Every day is something new!

May the odds be ever in your favor

I just finished reading Mockingjay, and I must say...
what an amazingly written, action packed trilogy.
Is anyone else as excited as I am about seeing The Hunger Games?

It's Official

T-3 months & we're out of here!
Or, this apartment at least.
Aaron found out that he is leaving June 1st for BOLC [Basic Officers Leader Course] in Ft. Sill, OK.
What we don't know yet is if Adelei & I will be able to go with him, or if we will have to stay here.
In March, we should find out what our first duty station will be.
If it isn't Ft. Sill, we will stay here, hopefully rent a town house until October & wait for him to come home & to move us where ever!
If it is Ft. Sill we will be able to move with him at that time.
I'm so excited.
And nervous.
But this is definitely going to be an adventure!

A Healthier Me

Every time I lose a little weight, I want to blog about it.
But then I don't, because I'm afraid I'll relapse, gain it back, & look like a complete idiot.
But it feels different this time.

Last Sunday, I started the Body by Vi shakes.
I had been looking for something to help me kick start a healthier life style and these shakes caught my eye. Luckily, a few of my friends had tried it and told me nothing but good things about it. So I bought it. I was nervous. You mix the shake yourself. I thought it was going to taste terrible. I was wrong. It was yummy, not too sweet.
If you're trying to lose weight you're suppose to drink it twice a day. I chose breakfast & lunch.
I'm not going to lie, the first day I thought I was going to starve to death.
Until I realized that I wasn't actually starving. I wasn't even really hungry.
That sounds crazy, right?
But that was part of my problem. My stomach wouldn't be hungry, I was just craving food. I am an emotional eater. If I'm bored, I eat. If I'm sad/upset/excited, I eat.
The easiest way for me to remedy this? To stay busy.
So that is what I did. Instead of sitting around the house all day waiting to go to work, I went on walks, did zumba, ran errands, got crafty.
After seven days of drinking this shake twice a day & doing moderate exercise, I have lost 2lbs.
I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but it's a start.
I don't crave snacks all day. I don't crave my 3 cups of coffee & large sweet tea every day.
I'm not really missing anything besides a few pounds.
And it feels great!

Here I come...

She's crawling!
