MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #31

Welcome back everyone! I look forward to my Friday bloghop. You all are amazing! If you want to join in on the fun, head on over to Wife of a Sailor and link up with us!

1. Aside from no deployments, what is one thing you would want to make the MilSpouse life "perfect"? [submitted by Oh How Delightful]

- First let me say, I don't too much mind the deployments. Yes they can be hard, stressful and depressing but we've personally found deployments to bring us closer each and every time. We've been through 3 already with number 4 coming up soon.

Now, to answer the question, I would pick solid support from other MilSpouses. I've seen far too many times where most MilSpouses tear each other down instead of supporting one another. We are all in the same situation. Our husbands (wives for those men MilSpouses!) all sacrifice their time with us to protect our freedom and this country. We all go through hard times. I know not everyone agrees all the time but when it comes to military life, we should all agree that none of us can make it without a fellow MilSpouse sister there to help us stay focused and to remember we are not alone in this. To ME, that would make it perfect. But I'm also not your typical person neither soooo.....yeah.
2. Just how many peppers did Peter Piper pick? [submitted by Married into Army]

- Ummm ::thinking:: I'm just going to Google that, LOL!! Here you go: The Answer!

3. If you could have any career in the world with nothing holding you back, what would you do? [submitted by It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To]

- A personal trainer. Being a personal trainer to the stars would be awesome, but I would also love to train SAHMs who think they can't get in a good workout since they are home with the kids, overweight children to show them the importance of being in shape and living a healthy lifestyle and obese adults to show them that they don't have to go at losing the weight alone. If no one wants to give them the encouragement and support that they needed to meet their goals, I would be there for them cheering them on and taking the journey with them.

4. Do you have a service oriented tattoo and if so what is it. If you don't what would you get? [submitted by The Squid's Accomplice]

- Not yet. I do plan on getting the anchor since my husband is in the Navy but I want it to be really unique. I already have two tattoos and I want the service related one to include some significant things to us. I think that tattoo would be the one I get when we go and get tattoos together.

5. Imagine a block of time has opened up in your busy day for you to take a class in anything you like. What subject would you choose? [submitted by To The Nth]

- Ooooh this is a good question! Let's see. I would probably go with gardening. I really want to start a garden with my daughter this year (I said we were going to do it last year but totally forgot about it). She's really interested in plants and animals and I just think it would be a great thing to do for our family. So gardening it would be so that I could learn what to plant with what, when, harvest times, blah blah blah!

See you all next week!

TurboFire Month One Review!

Month one is complete! I am having so much fun with this program. If you haven't heard about TurboFire, I don't know where you have been! I mean, I've only been blogging about it for the past 4 weeks now, LOL! No but seriously, TurboFire is one of the hottest programs that Beachbody offers. They also offer the popular programs Turbo Jam, P90X, Insanity and Hip Hop Abs.

Well, let's get down to business. Here is my review:

First Month Results: My weight fluctuated the first month. For the most part, I was 187.8 up until last week. Soooo, I kind of think I may have just been having a really good day when I weighed in. I even weighed in at 186 at the doctor's office so, yeah, it was a good day the first day. I still rewarded myself with some new workout shorts though!  

My clothes are definitely getting looser. The dress I wore to the Command Change of Command in December is a size 14 and it was pretty loose when I wore it on Sunday to church! Yay! Jeans, workout pants and some of even some of my lingerie are also loose. Good sign to me!

Nutrition: Soooooo ::looking down at the floor:: I didn't exactly follow the nutrition guide. Initially I said I was going to do a raw food/vegetarian plan. I followed it pretty well except for a few times when I got really overwhelmed with a few things. And the first thing that I didn't even THINK to make sure happened was eat. I did, however, do really well tracking my food and I could totally see where I lacked in nutrition. So I will most definitely continue tracking my food. Will be implementing Shakeology in the next two weeks.

Overall Review: Love love love TurboFire! It's hip. Fun. And challenging all at the same time. My favorite moves are the Twist, Clockwork and Tuck Jumps. I always seem to get my second, third and fourth wind when we do those moves. My friend who is doing TurboFire with me has lost quite a few inches and pounds as well! I'm so proud of her! We have decided that at the end of this next four weeks, we will do the Inferno Plan before starting the last month of TurboFire. I'll explain that when we get closer.

So that's it! My first month of TurboFire. I'm having so much fun. If you're interested in TurboFire too, let me know! I'm an Independent Beachbody Coach and you can order any Beachbody product through me! Getting back in shape after having a child has totally amped me up again abut getting re-certified as a personal trainer again. My goal for that is by my birthday in October. I think I can do it!

Until Next Post....
