A Cultural Revolution and Deployments
Thursday, June 24, 2010
I have been trying out this yogurt all week (Cultural Revolution), and I have to say, it is interesting. It isn't all sweetened and sugary, it is completely organic. The first day, I was a little weary because it just tastes different. I added blackberries, and I ate it. But not all of it. Well, I have eaten it each day this week, and today I tried the peach flavor with a bunch of blueberries in it. LOVED IT. Amazing, and ultra healthy. I have been trying to work on eating things that are good for my digestion while I am doing my cleanse, and otherwise. I have such a slow digestion process, I want to make it more normal. That, and I seem to be gassy a lot, and no one feels attractive when they are constantly farting, ha.
I will let you know how it works out, as I plan to keep eating it as a snack once I finish my herbal cleanse, and see if it maintains a regular cycle. That and all of the fiber I have been adding to my diet.
Once my schedule changes back to my normal time at work, I think I will keep getting up at the same time that I am now, since it doesn't bother me much. And then I can make breakfast, instead of eating cereal everyday. Don't get me wrong, I love my Go Lean and almond milk, but I also have this awesome whole wheat pancake mix I love to make and top with some raspberry jam. Yum. And omelets, I love love omelets, and it will help with protein.
Off topic, my boyfriend got an email notifying him of a possible promotion to E5, Sergeant. I'm excited for him, and would love for him to take the slot. Not to mention, it is within my Battalion, so getting on deployments together would be much easier. The down side: the unit deploys to Afghanistan in April. I always understand that deployments will happen, that is an aspect of our relationship. It is just that once I knew a date he was deploying last time, I got all emotional and weird. I just want to be able to handle the situation without freaking out and making his life harder the next deployment we go through. Also, if he does take the slot and get deployed, I am going to try to volunteer for the deployment. We won't likely get to spend much time together while we are there (if we are even located on the same base), but at least then I won't have to worry about possibly deploying as soon as he gets home, which has been a concern of mine.
I just want us to make our military careers AND our relationship work. And that is quite a task.
Oh well, I hope everyone has a good day and awesome work outs!
