Oh, how I have missed our HAPPIER, HEALTHIER YOU posts! Why did I stop sharing my goals and updates? To be honest, I was having a hard time near the end of my Beloved’s deployment. I wasn’t taking very good care of myself by then, but I had been doing what I could to get through those last rough deployment days. The weight of the stress, fear, and trying to be tough really wore me down – and I felt as though I crawled across the finish line when he wrapped his arms around me when I waited for him at the airport.
We pretty much hibernated for the two weeks that he was home – and I loved every minute of it! We played with the boys, had family movie nights, snuggled, and soaked up the time that we were all together. We even started designing a piece of furniture that he is now building!
I realized lately that even though I have been keeping up a few of the habits I developed when we were sharing our goals and progress together, I have fallen behind on other things.
Working out? Nope.
Early morning quiet time? Not happening.
Staying away from sugar? Umm…Excuse me…while I…finish…chewing this TWIX bar…from a trick-or-treat basket…
It’s time to get back to it – and I hope that you’ll join me! Let’s get back to encouraging and challenging each other to take better care of ourselves! Our loved ones need us!
Who’s with me? I super duper missed our little community of friends helping and encouraging each other to take a little time for ourselves! I would be so thrilled if you would come on this journey with me!
I’ll be sharing pictures of my progress on Instagram and Facebook throughout the month! And even Twitter, if I can figure the darn thing out!

Let’s get back to taking better care of our bodies, hearts, and minds – so we can better care for those that we love! Let’s finish out this year healthier than ever!
I'm so excited to be back and linking up with the lovely Leigh Kramer again this month! Her WHAT I'M...
