FitMOM alert!!!

The start of a new year made me realize that I wasn't as healthy as I would've hoped for. So as of January 2013 I started a fitness journey to change my way of living. I stopped drinking (alcohol, juice and the little amount of soda that took in occasionally). WATER and Soy milk were my new BFF's. I also looked into clean eating solutions.

This journey was not only to lose weight. I wanted to lose fat, gain muscle and become toned. I came across a comment on a friends status that I replied to. It mentioned Bodybuilding.com and how it was free. Workouts, meal plans, meeting people who also want to change. 

This was the Instagram photo I posted 23weeks my before photo. I wish I posted the side view as well. 

Now this photo I took yesterday July 1, 2013😊. Very proud of my progress but I'm still working hard to get where I would like to be.

Life in Romania

Omg it has been forever since my last blog post. Btw I have no clue what it was about lol. We have moved to Bucharest, Romania. Our children had no problem with adjusting to our no oversea life. As a matter of fact they had no problem with the zone change as well. Myself on the other hand it took me a week to adjust. Then I started getting sick. I wasn't taking the adjust well.

But here we are 6 months into it and I LOVE it. My family and I are learning more about what our bodies can and can not take. I started a new get fit journey and loving it. Our now 4 year old son has had medical issues which hospitalized him for a bit. Today he is doing very well. Our daughter turned 7 a little before arriving here, she has made tons of friends. My husband is traveling and making money so he's happy lol.

I hope I can continue to blog about our journey while living here but I'm not making any promises to myself.

CG Method (No Poo 4 Me)

So earlier this week I have decided to start the CG method after being natural for 3months come Aug 1st 2012. The CG Method promotes no poo hair meaning no shampoo. Instead I have found a new cleansing method using baking soda, apple cider vinegar and water. I simply LOVED it and will continue this no poo journey with mine and my daughters hair. Since we will be deploying overseas this came at a perfect time. I know some of the things available in the states will not be there. My next task is to find out what my curl pattern is so I can find the right products for me. I personally would like to find out by buying every product i think will work.

I've Been MIA

So it has been awhile since my last blog post. I've been thinking about posting but just didn't feel like it to be honest. Since my last post soooo much has changed we are currently stationed in DC. We added an addition to our family (Our Lab Mix) Mizzou.

Things to come...
Moving out of our current place soon and going into temporary military housing. Europe is our next stop Yayy. Ana will be turning 7 y/o and starting 2 grade.

Unemployment Compensation for Military Spouses

As most of you know I am a military spouse and so far I left 3 jobs because of orders so this made me very happy.

"Military families often face frequent moves and these moves can add unique financial pressures, as spouses may have to leave their employment due to a military transfer and the families may face a reduction in income. Generally speaking, when an individual leaves a job voluntarily, then the person is ineligible for unemployment benefits. Recognizing that spouses of military service personnel who quit their jobs due to a military transfer may not be quitting so “voluntarily,” state legislators have amended unemployment compensation laws to help military families who are relocating between states. In several states, state legislators deem it good cause if military spouses leave their employment to follow their spouses in a military relocation, and thus eligible for unemployment benefits."

NOTE:  NCSL is unable to provide advice or assistance to military members, military spouses, private citizens or businesses regarding unemployment compensation benefits.  Please contact your state department of labor or a private attorney for more information
