2011 New Life Health Plan

So I was talking to Alex on my lunch break before he went to bed, and told him of my New Years resolution to start working out and being healthier, I explained my plans and how excited I was. He informed me, being the super health man himself (lol), that I was going about it all wrong and here is the plan we came up with together for my 2011 New Life Health Plan!

Breakfast- oatmeal or omelet (egg and tomato, no cheese or meat) & water or sugar free juice
Snack- banana, grapefruit, mango & strawberries, or yogurt
Lunch- tuna (with little mayo & apple) sandwich on wheat bread or salad with low-fat ranch and grilled chicken breast
Snack- same as above snack choices
Dinner- same as above lunch choices, or baked fish & veggies
**Toning exercises, focusing on abs, butt, thighs, and arms

Same menu as above
**Cardio- run at least 2 miles on treadmill

Same as Monday

Same as Tuesday

Same as Monday

Same as Tuesday

Thank God for cheat days....this day I can have whatever I want! In moderation of course.

Weekly repeat the above schedule, weighing in every Monday.
No sodas, no white bread, no cheese, no tea, no coffee, limit seasonings (salt, sugar, etc.), no deserts, no fried foods of any kind, limit dark meats (steaks, ham, bacon :( )

Whew, that may kill me, but I've never been so motivated to make a difference in my life, especially since Alex doubts I'll stick to the routine so much <--- weenie!

Wish me luck, I start Monday January 3rd!

The Christmas Aftermath...

Whew am I glad that is done and over with! Christmas was amazing! Exhausting, and chaotic, but amazing!
I got a ton of new things, my favs being my two new pair of boots, my ring of course, I got some adorable earrings, my wallet, new pillows for the couch, 2 new throws, some nice shirts, CANDLES :), money (always the right size and color as my grandfather would say), pajamas, and perfume (from Victoria Secret, my fav!). Rylan got a ton of stuff, lots of clothes, shoes, bath toys, a rocking horse, an entertainment/learning station, and alphabet refridgerator magnets! We are two spoiled people!
Alex hasn't gotten his Christmas package yet....so I can't say what he got. But he did buy himself a new ipod touch, which he can call and text me from! YAY! And he's already spent a fortune on music, go figure.

I spent my entire Sunday cleaning my apartment and trying to find a "home" for all our new things, I'd say I accomplished quite a bit, my apartment is probably the cleanest its been since I moved in :)

I'm on a limited time here since I'm supposed to be working, so I'm going to cut this entry short and continue in a later post :) Have a wonderful day!

<----This is my "promise/pre-engagement" ring I got for Christmas!!!
<-- This is the ENGAGEMENT ring I'm DYING for! :)

Just thought I'd share :)

Hostility in the Office

I share an office with another woman, Sam....she's a decent office-mate. Well, it turns out good ole "aunt flo" is visiting her, and yesterday afternoon she purposely put ONE tampon in the womans restroom drawer knowing that she would need it that afternoon. When she went in there later it was gone. In her frustration she proceeded to tell all the ladies downstairs about the incident. Now a little history on the ladies in our office, we have the "downstairs girls" and the "upstairs girls" and for some reason beyond my knowledge the two groups DESPISE each other. However we have the only bathroom downstairs, so we share that. Now I don't personally have anything against anyone in my office, everyone has their good days and bad.
Ok, so today Sam puts a note in the ladies room, simply stating that she was offended and that in the future all would be well if they left a note say "sorry it was an emergency" or just asked to use it in the first place. A while later another woman came into our office laughing saying she liked Sam's package that she left in the restroom. Well, she didn't know what she was talking about, and curiosity got the best of both of us so we went to check it out. And sitting on the back of the toilet pretty as could be was a Christmas gift bag full of assorted tampons with a note attached that said "TIS the season for sharing, I guess we're all on at the same time, so enjoy!" I couldn't help but to burst out laughing, and the lady who left the package is annonymous, we have no idea who did it.We assume the guilty party, you know....the tampon theif, decided to make up for it.

Thats my big news for the day!

YAY! One more day until I'm off work for CHRISTMAS!!!!

Good news....and bad news

Well good news is my car is fixed, for the most part. Brakes are functioning correctly and I got two new tires. Bad news is, I  have not accomplished any more Christmas shopping! I'm running out of time FAST! Instead of going out on my normal "Wednesday night adventures" when Rylan is with his father I'll be Christmas shopping with Jackie. She isn't done either. What kind of people are we?!?!? We'll also be shopping Thursday night and if necessary CHRISTMAS EVE! I have a lunch date with Alex's parents Christmas eve, and have to take Rylan to see his father for the afternoon. When he returns to me that evening we get to open one present each then off to bed! Well...at least for those of us that don't have to stay up playing Santa and putting crazy toys together. <-- me and mom
Christmas morning we do stockings, then have breakfast, then G-ma comes over and we open presents! I LOVE opening presents! And I LOVE watching other people open the presents I got them :)
That afternoon Rylan and I will travel a few blocks over to my G-mas and have Christmas with my daddy :)

I've been having trouble deciding what to do for New Years. Alex won't be here, so I won't have a midnight kiss :( and I'll probably be with my friends, who are all couples. Odd ball out I guess :(
I have tickets to the Stars game, which I'll probably take Jackie to....then we'll find something to do afterwards so she can be with Carlos at midnight. Maybe I'll take June and give her a midnight kiss, crazy dog likes to kiss me all the damn time anyway. I wish Alex were going to be here for the holidays, I feel like he's missing out on so much :( he'll also miss, Valentine's day, Easter, Memorial Day (maybe depending on R&R), 4th of July, my birthday, Labor Day weekend (which is my family reunion), Rylan's birthday, Halloween, and our anniversary....which I'm not really sure what that day is exactly, but I know it's sometime before he gets back. Possibly Thanksgiving, because I don't know when he'll be home really. That is ALOT!  This is CRAP! I know he feels like crap for missing out on so much, and I really wish he wouldn't beat himself up over it, I understand WHY he isn't here....it just sucks.

So...lets talk New Years resolutions, I have alot of goals I wish to accomplish in the upcoming year! I need to start school, find a better job, work out, save money, pay off debt, get a new car, and I dunno what else right now, but I'm sure there's more :)
I desperately need to start school, I've already wasted so much time. I guess part of me is scared, I was so smart in high school, but it's been SO long since I've done anything school related, and I hate to miss out on time with Rylan :(
A better job is also a must, I need a higher paying job closer to home, and preferrably in a vet office or kennel so that I'm working in the industry related to my schooling.
I HAVE TO WORK OUT! I don't doubt that I'm an attractive girl....I just don't think that I'm attractive enough for me. My body is definitely not the same since having a child, and being 22 years old I would KILL to be back in a bikini next summer! SO to the gym I go....and I won't quit this time! <--SWEAR!
Saving money is going to be the only thing I can do to get me out of the hole I've been in for going on 4 years now. This goes along with paying off debt and getting a new car. My car is dying, and if I ever want a loan for a car or a house I've got to get the stupid $1500 off my credit report. I don't know why I haven't just paid it off, I guess before Rylan I didn't really care.

I feel like I'm rambling on about boring stuff. SO....I'm going to try online shopping to see if ANYTHING can be delivered on time!

As Promised...

Train- "Marry Me"

Forever can never be long enough for me
Feel like I've had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won't let them see
But there's one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way
Marry Me
Today and every day
Marry Me
If I ever get the nerve to say
Hello in this cafe
Say you will
Say you will

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I'll wear out the words I love
And you're beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way
Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will
Say you will

Promise me
You'll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

And marry me
Today and everyday
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will
Say you will
Marry me

Looking for change

I've been in an administrative position for one company to the next for the past 4-5 years. I plan on starting school as soon as possible to get started on my basics and move on to my veterinary schooling plan. In the meantime I'd like to find a new job. I really like the people I work with, and my boss is very understanding and generous, but at times I feel like I'm the "company b**ch", so my plan is to look for a position in a kennel or veterinary office. Now without a degree I obviously can't be a vet, vet assistant, or vet tech. But I can get an ADMINISTRATIVE job at a VETERINARY office, to at least get my foot in the door. In fact I just sent my resume off to one VERY near my house! I hate to leave my current boss in a bind to find someone to replace me, especially if it ends up being short notice or around the holidays. But I truly feel that in order to accomplish what I want I have to get out of this hole I'm in. Working in doors, frames, and hardware isn't going to get me anywhere I want to go. Plus....the closer I work to home the higher the pay rates seem to be. I'm working on the wrong side of town right now, and this has to change.

I've been watching entirely too many chick-flicks lately. Funny thing is I watch them because of songs I like that are in them. For example, The Girl Next Door, cute movie...however David Gray's "This Year's Love" is my current favorite song. A Walk To Remember, classic love story, but I watch it to hear the song Mandy Moore sings when in the play at school. Robin Hood (the version with Kevin Costner), maybe not such a chick-click....but I watch it to hear Bryan Adams' "Everything I do, I do it For You". Now this next song isn't in a movie, that I know of, but it's Train's new song "Marry Me" which I think I'll post lyrics to since it's so amazing.
***Can you say wedding fever???*** Lol

So my car is dying, a slow, painful, and expensive death. I need an alignment so bad, when I drive and talk to Alex on the phone he can tell I'm driving because my voice shakes....annoying much? <-- YES
Last night my brake caliper busted and brake fluid went everywhere so my brakes were gone....luckily my step dad can fix that without a problem. Well while doing so he called me to tell me that I need TWO new tires....because they're pretty bad apparently (I rarely look at my tires...just not something I have learned to make into a habit). I also need an oil change, anti-freeze, my windshield wiper fluid hose fixed, and whatever it was I paid $200 to get fixed last time I took it to the shop, is broken again and my car has the "hiccups". I need a new car before this one drives me to insanity!

This week has been "high stress" for me....lots of things going on, financial crap as usual, and Christmas is NEXT WEEK and I'm not done shopping! I think I will spend tonight cuddled up on the couch with some chocolate chip cookie dough and some movies....maybe. Really depends on the car situation when I get it back tonight. Bubble bath and a book sounds good too. Maybe Jackie will come over and we can have a "girls night in" and do facials and nails :) Who knows....all I know is I have to finish Christmas shopping SOON!

I suppose I shall pretend to work some more and chat with Alex on yahoo messenger :)

Have a lovely FRIDAY!!!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


Well, ever since my "breakdown" things have gone back to normal, or as normal as possible in my life. I've been very cheerful and all smiles for the past few days! Even Rylan's schedule is going back to normal, no more late nights screaming, and he's going to see his dad for the first time in 20 days tonight. Which I'm not so excited about, but it's important for him to have his father in his life.

Christmas shopping was a fail! I spent entirely waaaay too much money and only got 3 people off my list. I shall try again tomorrow and next week after I get paid again. I HAVE to get this done!

Alex's "Christmas" care package will not be there anywhere near Christmas lol, I'm always late...with everything. SO....I'm making it an "un-Christmas" care package. It will have his Christmas gifts in it, but then just some other stuff rather than what I was going to send him. I feel bad, but he's going to have to get used to the fact that I am....a procrastinator! It happens to the best of us I suppose.

Tonight is my first night out in a long time since Rylan hasn't been going to see his dad. Jackie Dee and Carlos are taking me bowling.....I hate bowling :( but it gives me the opportunity to have a few beers and make a fool of myself and make fun of them....so it should be an eventful night! Now I need to find something to do while my little Prince is gone allllll weekend :(

Alex has a concealed handgun license, and feels like it is necessary to carry a "concealed weapon" everywhere he goes. It bothers me, I don't like guns anyway, they terrify me. But he feels like it is for his own safety. I can understand occasionally carrying a gun, or even having a gun in the house. But I wouldn't ever carry a gun around with me ALLLL the time. They're dangerous! And scary!

Anyways, I don't have much else to share today.....so I will update when I have something exciting!!

Rough few days

Well last weekend I spent the weekend making cupcakes and cookies. Cupcakes, for my little brothers birthday party, and cookies for donations and our family Christmas. It was an exhausting weekend!

Yesterday was rough, Mondays suck anyways....but yesterday was especially horrible. Over the weekend Alex told me he was thinking about re-enlisting. Of course, I have to be supportive of his decisions, I love him to death and think he should do whatever makes him happy, but I was understandably confused. He's told me a million times that he is done, and just wants to ride out the time he has left then come home. So I was a little shocked when he sprung this information on me. Well...yesterday he changed his mind, said he thought about it and can't stand being away from Rylan, me and his family, so he's done once his time is up. Somehow this got under my skin, even though its exactly what I wanted. I guess I felt like he only changed his mind because he knew I didn't want him to re-enlist, but he swears that isn't the case. So then we were just both in frustrated moods, and I couldn't get out of mine. He ended up going to bed frustrated....called me at 11:30pm my time which is...8:30am for him, to apologize about the whole thing, I was half asleep and didn't want to talk about it anyway. But man when we got off the phone I lost it....I just started bawling my eyes out. Now...occasionally I get a few tears if I hear a song, or something that reminds me of him....but I haven't REALLY REALLY REALLY CRIED since we said our goodbyes the day he deployed over a month ago. Well I cried alright, cried like a freaking baby, then my nose started bleeding, which has NEVER in my life happened to me. Then I crashed out again, slept like a baby and was awaken by another phone call, a much more cheerful phone call. Letting all that emotion out in me seemed to have completely cleaned my emotional pallet. I feel a million times better, I mean I still miss him like crazy, but no more frustrating moments or the need to start an argument over nothing. I feel like a whole new woman today. AND I got my Christmas present from Alex today!!!! It is the most beautiful "promise"/"pre-engagement" ring ever!!! Lol, I say that because this isn't the actual ring we've picked for my engagement ring, but seeing as how he is out of the country for a long time and unable to propose I get a "temp" :)

So I'm STARTING Christmas shopping TODAY! I know I've gotten a super late start this year, but it's going to get done :) The biggest problem I'm having is finding something for Rylan, since his birthday was only 2 months ago, he's barely had time to play with all those toys, and now I'm about to get a million more for him! I have no idea what to get him....not that he's even going to remember. Also, don't know what to get Alex's mom....she's way harder to pick something for than I though she'd be. Oh well....I will have a girlfriend there to be my shopping buddy and to help me :)

Gotta go, work is calling me.....again.

Playing hookie

My dryer broke last night, and being behind on laundry meant that my ONLY clean clothes were soaking wet, so I called in to work today, and made a maintenance request, packed up my clothes and my prince and headed to my moms to use her dryer. I got to talk to Alex today on skype, which was a new thing for us, I don't have a webcam, but my sisters laptop does and since I was already at my moms I took advantage of that. It was SO amazing to be able to literally SEE him and talk to him :) Hopefully I'll get to do that more often.

I spent my day off running errands with and for my mom. She had dental surgery today, so I drove her there, then picked up my little brother from school, then picked mom up from surgery. Later we went shopping some, had dinner, and now I'm about to head home to my apartment with clean, DRY clothes and give Rylan a bath. I'd LOVE to play hookie tomorrow too and help mom finish Christmas decorating, but I just can't afford to miss two days :(

I'd like to think I'm very understanding of Alex's job, but I'm not, I don't know what he spends his days doing so when he gets back to his room and wants to go straight to bed (at 6pm his time) I kinda throw a fit, it's the only time we get to talk and it bothers me sometimes that he doesn't always want to take advantage of that. I know I'm being a baby, and I always let him go to bed rather than complain and whine to him. It just sucks, I miss him soooo much!

Gotta run, Rylan is trying to attack his grandma's Christmas tree!

Being a military significant other....

A lot of people are very patriotic. I myself believed myself to have more pride than most people I know in our country, and in our military. But I realize now, being with Alex, that if you do not literally have a personal connection to someone in the military then you don't know how patriotic you can be. I have never prayed for the safety of our soldiers more than I have since I've had a soldier of my own over there. I sympathize with the families of our soldier, and always have, but now I understand how terrifying it is to not hear from them for a few days, and wonder if something terrible has happened. A lot of people have told me that "The only job harder than the military, is being a military SO" (SO=significant other, hehe). Now I don't know about that, it is extremely hard being alone, and wondering, and missing, and worrying, but his job has got to be waaaay harder than mine. I mean at least I have my family and friends, and even his family, here to support me. He has no one, other than more soldiers feeling the same way he feels.

Anyway, I came across this today and thought I would share (I have changed names, and some details to be more specific to my relationship):

Why I'm lucky to have a boyfriend in the Army that is deployed:

1.  I have a boyfriend that is selfless enough to put others lives before his own.  This means I can have faith that he will always think of my needs and will be a good father some day because those are the kinds of values he possesses.  His character as a soldier makes me look up to him and love him for the man he has become.

2.  We, unlike many couples who spend all of their time together, appreciate the smallest things together.  A package, an email, a phone call, and someday a goodnight kiss and a hug.  We will never take for granted the ability to sit on the couch and watch a movie together.

3.  I have been forced to get to know Alex as a person, as a human being, and as a soul without physical emotions influencing our relationship.  This means that I am able to have complete confidence that we are compatible not because of our chemistry, lust, convenience, or physical attraction to each other, but because of our emotional and intellectual compatibility.

4.  In order to spend time together, we can only usually talk over the phone or through emails.  "Hanging out" means we have to talk and communicate.  This has brought us closer together because we are able to talk for hours instead of just sit in the same room and not speak, and consider it spending time together.  (This is not always easy, but it has led us to learn much more about each other and enjoy our conversations!)

5.  We have a kind of trust that many people cannot understand.  Spending so much time apart could lead to jealousy and fights, or could lead you to trust each other and encourage each other to remain independent and strong while the other one cannot be around.  It is this interdependence that gets us through the toughest times.

6.  I know he loves me.  Let's face it...a man would not waste time trying to make a relationship work through a very trying, exhausting, demanding deployment if he did not truly love the person on the other end of the phone.  He makes sacrifices not only for his country, but for me.  I must be special to him!

7.  I love him more than I ever thought I was capable of loving someone.  Missing someone is very hard, but when it is the right person, it makes you realize how important they are to you.  I was never the kind of person to stick around for a guy if I couldn't get my way and have an ideal relationship.  Now, I am willing to make a lot of sacrifices in order to stay together.  This gives me confidence that we are meant to be together and that I am making the right decision in remaining committed to him.

8.  We both get time to ourselves before we are together forever.  This might sound kind of weird, but sometimes I tell Alex, "you better enjoy your bedspace now while you have it, because I am going to steal your pillows for the rest of your life once you get back!"  This is my time to myself that I can spend selfishly and focus on my school, my space, and do what I want.  It is a chance for us to ease into a serious, life-long committment.  We are able to get used to the idea and plan our future before it becomes a reality, as opposed to rushing into anything.

9.  We get to write love letters/emails and be romantic.  I don't know about anyone else, but there is something romantic about having your significant other in the military across the world and not always being able to communicate.  The chance to receive a "love email" or send a package becomes exciting and keeps the love alive.  I don't know many friends with significant others that they see every day that tell each other how important they are and how much they are loved nearly as much as Alex and I do, worlds apart.  We may not get to hug each other, but I never question his love for me.

10.  I appreciate life, and pray more.  This deployment has brought me closer to God, and I am humbled every day realizing how much all the troops put on the line for us every day.  Before I dated Alex, I always appreciated the troops, but it was not personal for me and I did not understand the extent of the sacrifice.  Life is precious, and I am lucky to have the life I live and the man of my dreams protecting me.

I have lots more to say today, but will have to continue later...again work is calling me so I must attend to business.

Busy busy busy

Lately I feel like I have no time to do anything! Christmas is literally right around the corner and I haven't even started my shopping yet, this is NOT good. Between work, trying to register for school, taking care of Rylan and June, and attempting to take care of myself...the day is over before it starts.
My little Prince has been HORRIBLE the past few days. He's cutting a new tooth and officially believes that means he no longer has to sleep, and neither do I. This has caused some trouble for me, I have to practice a ton of patience when he's in one of his moods, the screaming and hitting and just being irritable is sometimes almost unbearable. Last night was the first night in 3 days that he has slept through the night.
Alex is being a big butt too! He's been going through some things over there in that hell hole. I don't know details, as he doesn't tell me much, but the past few days he's been very upset about something, and extremely irritable. Luckily, he doesn't take it out on me, but I fear that him holding everything inside and NOT talking about it will eventually drive him insane.

So last night I caught myself having a conversation with June. I was telling her how no matter how hard I try I can not keep all the laundry done all the time and how ridiculous it is that it is too cold to try and enjoy a decent walk with her. I suppose I was expecting some sort of response from her because I turned around and looked at her....she was licking herself. I guess she wasn't very interested in what I had to say. I then realized how absolutely adsurd it was to be having this conversation with her....knowing that she has no idea what I'm talking about.

I really miss Alex, he is one of the easiest people to talk to, about absolutely nothing in particular. The conversation just naturally flows between us. I wish that communication was a little more often between us, but being on two different time zones kinda screws with your schedule of availibility. I know he stays up pretty late talking to me sometimes, and I've done the same to talk to him. It exhausts us, but we can't go without talking!

This past weekend was pretty busy. Friday after work I went to pick up Rylan and stopped by a friend of mine's, Jackie, to hang out for awhile. That was the night that Eclipse, the third of the Twilight Saga, came out on DVD at midnight...instead of buying it though my mom and I rented it OnDemand for $6 :) it was perfect!
Saturday I tried to sleep some, since Rylan had me up for 23 hours Friday! We had plans to go spend the evening with Alex's parents, which we made it out there, just not on time lol. Cheryl made pot roast *YUMMY* and Martin and I had a few drinks. Rylan went to bed at a decent hour so the three of us watched a movie (Taken...if you haven't seen it...DO). It was still pretty early in the evening but we were exhausted so Cheryl and I went to bed while Martin watched the Mavs game. Sunday morning we exchanged Christmas gifts and had an amazing breakfast. I love spending time with his family, they are SO sweet and truly make me feel like I'm part of their little family. Alex's little sister is a little younger than Rylan, and this I suppose makes Rylan feel superior because he bullys her :(

AH I have to suddenly cut this short....real life is calling at me yet again. Gotta get back to work!

From the beginning

A new blog....a fresh start...a blank page, and writer's block.
Well, we'll start from the beginning I suppose. My amazing boyfriend (Alex) and I met in middle school and grew up together living one street apart. We "dated" a few time when we were younger but never got serious. We lost touch sometime in high school and got back in touch through facebook, who woulda thought lol. He's been married and divorced, and I was engaged and had a child (my son isn't actually his biological son) and separated. Our lives just sort of meshed...we decided to date, as adults now, and see how it goes. It's turned into the most amazing relationship I've ever been in. I have never been so in love and so sure about anything EVER! I'm a very lucky princess :)
Alex is in the army, and currently deployed overseas. Because he was stationed in Kansas prior to deployment, our relationship has been long distance, with LOTS of visitation though :) It wasn't a difficult decision deciding to be with Alex, but it was hard stepping into a military relationship. It has been extremely stressful worrying about him, and the limited communication SUCKS! But it makes it worth that much more when I do get a phone call from him :) We were pretty close friends throughout his first deployment, this is his second, my first. It honestly hasn't been as bad as I was expecting, but we're still pretty early into it so hopefully it will remain this way. I miss him a ton, but I couldn't be more proud of him! That's my soldier, my hero :)
Rylan is the most amazing little boy I've ever known! He just had his first birthday this past October. He tried to walk every now and then, but is a sonic speed crawler so that is his preferred way of transportation, other than being carried by his mommy. He says "mama" and "dada" and "yum yum" he waves goodbye, claps his hands, he knows what a cow says "mmmoo" and a tiger....he literally GROWLS! He is an excellent baby, he seldom cries, goes to sleep without a peep most of the time (unless he's in a new place), and listens most of the time lol. This first year has flown by! I can't believe he's doing so much, and he's gotten so big. He's spoiled rotten, and has the most amazing personality! He's my little prince :)
I recently decided to add a fur-baby into our little family. Her name is June, she's a 2 year old rescued basset hound/sheltie mix. She's fully potty trained (THANK GOD) and as sweet as she can be. She's great with Rylan! I don't really know enough about her yet to write a whole bunch, but I'm sure I'll have more June-stories later :)

So there is the introduction to A Soldier, A Princess, and a Prince (and Miss June)

I PROMISE these will get more entertaining as we go :)
