Better Late Than Never

2 07 2009

Cliché but none-the-less true. I am so sorry for my lack of posting on Monday. As Staci mentioned in her post last night, I totally forgot. For those who don’t know, my husband is currently in Officer Candidate School in Alabama, so I’ve been going solo with my 2 little girls (both under the age of 4) since the beginning of June. Needless to say, I’ve been a bit scatterbrained as of late. I never quite realized how much my hubby ACTUALLY did around the house, lol, but don’t tell him I said that! Now, back to my post…

June (as with all the summer months) have always been my “sweatin’ off the pounds” time of the year. I don’t know why, but there’s something about summer that’s always motivated me to get (back!) in shape. Maybe it’s the thought of being seen in a swimsuit with all those “winter pounds” still clinging to my butt, hips, and thighs that does it! 🙂 So far during the month of June, I’ve manage to shed 13 pds, and I have no plans on stopping there. I hope to surprise my husband when I pick him up in August. It’ll be fun to see his face when he sees me for the first time in 2+ months, and I’m 20 or so pounds lighter, lol.

I’ve tried to lose weight as part of my new year’s resolution, but when it’s cold outside, all I want to eat is steaming hot bowls of chili—loaded with crackers and cheese—and LOTS of hot cocoa. Not exactly contusive to weight lose! What about you? When is your best weight loss time?

IMG00030-20090629-1619For my addition for our Summer Fun Contest, I’m adding a couple fun trinkets I picked up in Savannah, GA while on a few well-earned days off during my AT (annual training) at Fort Gordon. (Yes, I’m military too!) Not sure the pics do them justice, but it’s a super-smoother whale-shaped stone and a small jar filled with blue sand and seashells. I thought they were too cute! Hopefully, you will too!

Anyway, guys and gals, I’m off to the gym and then to the post office to mail my hubby a letter and some pics of his girlies. (The poor guy has to “pay” 25 pushups for every stamp that’s on any letter he gets!) Good luck!

Jordyn loves to kill people—textually, of course.

Whether a chilling paranormal mystery or a hardcore military romantic suspense, she always writes from her heart, and she never spares her fictional heroes and heroines any pain. Her motto: What doesn’t kill her between-the-pages couple makes for one hell of a read!

She grew up an Army brat, and now, she has a couple Army brats of her own. She even married a fellow soldier. She and her sergeant hubby live in central Arkansas and are both members of the Arkansas National Guard.
