2010 Recap

I know I've been a terrible blogger but I'm going to try to be better...when I have the time :(

Looking back over 2010 I realize I'm a much different person now than I was at the beginning of the year. I'm a much stronger person and I have an amazing man to think for that! To recap my year:

-I finished my year at 500.01 miles run. Didn't exactly reach my goal of 1000 miles but with the tough year I had I'll gladly take 500.

-I was promoted to Asst. Human Resources Manager.

-I lost two wonder grandparents less than a month apart.

-The High School softball team I coach made it to the Regional finals for the second year in a row.

-I met an amazing man, MB, who I plan on marrying. We've actually known each since the summer of 2008 but started dating in the fall of 2010. I truly believe he is my soul mate and I can't wait to start my life with him!

I know there are so many other things that happened this year I can't begin to think of them all. Now on to my goals for 2011:

-Run 1000 miles

-Run my first full marathon (signed up for one in April) and four minis

-Help my softball team reach the Regional semi-finals for the 3rd year in a row but win this time!!!

-Continue to work hard and move up in the company I work for

-Be a better blogger

-Marry the love of my life and start a family

I hope every one reaches their goals for 2011...I'm off to a great start!!!!

Helping Impact People

How many of you out there drink energy drinks or feel tired all the time? I know I was one of those people until a good friend of mine introduced me to two amazing new products out on the market. They're call Pink (for women) and Red (for men). They're both loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Everyone that's tried it loves it. I take mine every day. It is much healthier for you than the energy drinks out on the market and cheaper too! You can't ask for more than that. It provides me with energy to get through the day and not be tired plus it's helped me lose a few pounds! If you're interested in more information or ordering it go to

Once you try it you'll be hooked!

Starting Over

I decided it was time to change the name of my blog. I'm no longer an Army wife so it just didn't seem right keeping the blog name. My divorce was finalized on the 10th of this month so I'm officially starting over in one area of my life. I'm excited and scared. I never thought I'd be 25 years old and divorced but I knew my marriage would end this way. I knew we weren't right together...I was settling. I've been doing a lot of thinking and having "me" time. I've come to the conclusion I settle with relationships because I feel guilty if I'm too happy. It's as though if I'm too happy it's like I'm forgetting about my brother. Six and a half years after he was killed, there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I know I shouldn't think that way because he would want to see me happy. I wish I could talk to him and get some helpful big brother advice. But for the first time in my life I'm doing things for me and just taking the time to make myself happy instead of putting everyone else's feelings in front of mine. I've got to be happy by myself before I can be happy with anyone else.

Rough Day

Well things haven't gone smoothly since about 11 Saturday night. My pain gradually grew worse and I was having chills. But guess what, I couldn't get ahold of the on call nurse. I called 5 different times through mid day on Sunday. So I finally just went to the ER. The one good thing I can say about that visit is they made the pain go away. I got two morphine shots while I was there. Now I know what drug addicts feel like the morning after. I woke up with an awful headache this morning. It had been 7 hours since I'd last taken anything for my pain and I was having withdrawals. It was a good thing I got to work from home today so I could be comfy and lay down when I needed to. I can't wait to feel better from this surgery.

What a day

The divorce papers have been signed...woohoo!!! And on top of that he finally moved all his stuff out. It's finally all happening. Such relief I don't have to deal with his crap any more. He's been back state side for 16 days now and he's spent over $12,000. Who seriously does that? Thank goodness I don't have to worry about that any more and I can get my name off all his accounts so I won't be responsible for his debt any more.

My surgery went well yesterday...the doc said it was worse than what he was expecting and he found endometriosis...he said it was a good thing I decided to go ahead and have it done instead of waiting 4-5 more years because it would've been a lot worse. My stomach is so sore today...he was only suppose to do a small incision in my belly button but I woke up with three small incisions. So once again my running is put on hold for a little while.

Hope you're having a good weekend!

54 days

In 54 days I'll be in a bikini on a beach in Hawaii...I've been out of commission on working but I decided to start back tonight even though during surgery time my doctor will probably make me take it easy...and I killed it tonight...3 mile run, 5 mile bike ride and 15 minutes on the legs and butt are on fire! Which is a very good maybe I'll lose this last ten pounds that's been hanging around for some time now in these 54 days...

hope your week started off on a good note!

It's been that long...

I just realized my last post was on June I can't believe it's been that long...there's so much that has been going on in my life I don't even know where to start...

First, my soon to be ex should be coming home within the next few weeks and he's agreed to sign the papers the weekend he's home...and the good news that comes along with that is the divorce will be final as soon as the judge signs it!!! woohoo, there's no waiting!!! I will finally be free of this nightmare!

Secondly, my running was put on hold for a little while...I'm hoping not too much longer though...I've been having some medical problems...I was taken to the emergency room about a month and a half ago with the worst pain I've ever experienced...turns out I had an ovarian cyst rupture...even though I went through all that pain I'm almost thankful because it uncovered another problem...I was referred to my OB where they ran some more tests and now I've been referred to a fertility specialist for surgery...I have a septated uterus, which if you're not aware can cause major fertility first appt. with the specialist is this Wednesday...part of me is worried about what he might say...but if it can be fixed I'm glad I'm doing it now that way when I want to start having kids there won't be a problem...I'm just really scared he's going to tell me I won't be able to have kids...I'm keeping my fingers crossed everything will turn out ok.

On top of all that, at work we are in the middle of implementation of a new payroll and hr system and we are suppose to go live on this system this payroll...haha, funny thing is our data hasn't even been uploaded on the new system and our training classes have been horrible! I hope our employees still get paid next week. Then I also found out that our company is getting ready to buy another company, which means.....more hours than I'm already working. I'm already at 50-55 a week...I might as well just start sleeping at work with as many hours as I'm going to be putting in.

October cannot get here soon enough...I'll be sitting on the beach in Hawaii with a drink in my hand with no worries in the world for 8 straight days!
