Yesterday I spent a few hours in the sun. I took my computer and my phone out to my back deck and did my afternoon work in a bikini top and shorts. Goal was to get a little tan so I am not so pasty white when Josh gets home next week.
I was doing a good job moving around until I got into a particularly in depth call with a client and I sat down…sideways. I burned one thigh, my side and one shoulder.
Last deployment return was 4.5 years ago. I remember going and buying a new outfit and excitedly preparing to welcome Josh home to a very different physical body. On his last deployment I lost 35 pounds.
It was basically the beginning of my fitness journey. That year I got certified as a personal trainer and trained my first clients. I joined CrossFit, went to bootcamp, aka PIP, and had completely changed my eating. I decided I would be a coach and trainer as my full time job.
I moved cross country, set up our new house, and raised the boys ages 4 and 2 for a full calendar year…. without him.
This time, well you know a lot has happened….so much. But in regards to my physical body, he left when I was 5 weeks pregnant, and will return at almost 36.5 weeks.
Not sure if a tan will be that significant if you think about it that way.
