Two pounds lost..

I have an exciting post to add, but I honestly don't have the energy with this frontal sinuisitis I've got going on. In the past week, I've managed to lose two unexpected pounds. Yay me--except I was out of town, and wasn't able to make it to the gym as planned. I am going to be dying on Wednesday when I go back. For right now, I am recooperating. The meds they have me on are seriously messing with my stomach, and my head pain is not allowing me to go work out. Poo. {Maybe that is why I've lost two pounds, lol}

Double Bummer.

So, I entered a caption contest on The Fresh Diet fanpage on Facebook, and placed as a runner-up. I won three free days of meals, and found out that they don't deliver to my city yet. Nothing is worse than winning something that you can't claim. Super bummed.

I was asked why I wanted to go back into the Marine Corps..

I never wanted out in the first place, lol. I had acquired a non-healing tibial stress fracture with other lower extremitie injuries, and my geographic location physical therapy wasn't helping. So, the Marine Corps put me on a medical board, and I was discharged three weeks after medical review. I am sure it was something that my ortho said in his notes about  how my tibia could shatter if I kept running on it.. nasty little stress fracture!

Well, it has been over 4.5 years since I exited the Marines, and I miss it. Plus, my injury has long healed. Now you know why I wear those Five Fingers-- to help strengthen my feet and leg muscles.

I developed some pretty amazing friendships while I was in, and honestly, if I was in a pickle, I could call them up, and they would bail me out. Oh, esprit de Corps.. that too. Believe it or not, I love the training, the traveling, and all the cool, amazing things I get to do in behalf of the government. Who can say they've thrown two live grenades? And I am a gluten for punishment. I just miss it.. Is that enough for an answer?

What do you want to know about me?

So, my "about me" tab is a bit hurr-ting, and I was wonder if you (my fellow bloggers) would like  to ask me a question, any question to get to know me. Please do respond! :)

Ask away.

Wholly scale!

I stepped on the scale this morning, and I've exited the 140's! I am so stinking excited that my hard work is finally starting to pay off. I even celebrated with some Fat Tuesday King's cake. Oh, it was oh so yummy! Now, I get to run my toosh off tonight! haha!

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my 4 week photo. I can't wait to see the difference next month! :)

--- I took this updated photo of me this afternoon. Pics of myself are rare. enjoy!

Before and four week picture

Okay, I am being a bit brave, and posting a pic with a before and four week update picture of my fitness progress. I am wearing a sports bra, and if that alarms you-- then, skip this post. I am a bit sad with my upper body, but I've been handicapped since I broke my wrist, and that is my excuse! lol.

Friday, we met with another fitness trainer, and he gave us a kick a-- program. I am sure I will be more pleased with the 8 week photo. I still need to let you all in on my work out routine, so you can try them out yourself. Now, be honest, I need to know if you see any differences in my figure.

I could use some support, lol. :)
