A Northern Girl Heads South

My ramblings from one north to another and everything in between

I had a super awesome workout today

  • fastest two mile ever
  • squats not with the smith machine 
  • step up was super easy (I usually hate it and last time I used 25’s and did okay, but they were being used and I’m impatient)
  • I did real actual honest to god pushups instead of having to use a bench or something to change the angle to make it easier
  • I’m just over half pound lighter than yesterday (151.2) despite the fact I drank and had sushi last night

Now if I can get the old apartment finished today and have everything ready by the time the father in law and brother in law roll up, I’ll be so super happy I’ll forget that I have to entertain them alone tonight.

Zane was staying late after work today to finally get intro counciling with his new boss. She’s been there like a month and a half, but things have been pretty crazy I guess. This is important to me because he’s going to tell her he wants to talk to branch about PCSing to Knox. He just found out earlier this week from talking to another girl he works with (whose husband works at branch) that he doesn’t need to ask permission because he’s been here two years. Fingers crossed we get that process started and know something before winter.

He’s also talking to her about two medals/awards he was put up for that got denied. One was for sane stuff, the other was from his old boss for the way he handled the hospital inspection in March. He just found out about that last one last night… He didn’t even know it existed until he was told it was denied and downgraded to basically a high five and a four day pass, which is obviously useless as a nurse. But basically, the battalion commander that he’s never met has either denied or downgraded both of these awards. She did the same to another girl he works with and this chick literally saved her roommate’s life. So idk what you’ve gotta do to get some recognition, but damn.

Needless to say, he’s not gonna be in a great mood when he comes home.

Anonymous asked: Nice! What do you think you're ultimate goal weight would be? How tall are you?

Aw thanks anon! Originally, I wanted to get to 150, but it’s hard to pick a number and know what you’re going to feel like once you get there. While I’m pretty happy with where I’m at, I still would like to lose another 10ish pounds. I’m 5’6”.

I fell asleep shortly after dinner last night. I didn’t want to. I wanted to stay up and pack a little more since today we should be getting our new keys. But once I laid down, I was done. Zane works tonight and Wednesday and has a meeting this afternoon, so he stayed up. I woke up around 3:30 and I was wide awake. I went out to see what he was doing and he said he was just getting ready to come to bed. I’ve now been up since 6 and don’t know what to do with myself. I wanted to go on post and either run on the track because it’s somewhat nice out or go to the gym, but then I remembered that while PT isn’t a thing for my husband, it is for like everyone else. I really don’t wanna deal with that. 

So now I don’t know what to do. The apartment is a mess and there’s just no more room to do anything else and I need to stay quiet so Zane can sleep. The apartment office opens at 9 and I’m hoping they call us shortly after that so we can get started. They had cleaners in there yesterday and did the final inspection around 5 last night, so it should be good to go. I’m a little sad to be leaving this apartment since it’s the first place that we lived together, but we’re not really going anywhere and it pretty much looks the same. I have a few things I still need/want to get for the new place, so lord knows I’ll end up at Target an hour from now. We actually went out and bought the mattress we picked out a few weeks ago yesterday morning, so that was really the biggest thing we had left on our list.

I’m a little frustrated that we’ll only be able to move some of the stuff on our own because it’s just too heavy/awkward to do alone. Zane said that he had asked two of the guys he works with for help but they can’t until either tomorrow and/or Friday, so we’ll see. I’m just glad we don’t have to deal with stairs…
