22 more days in Russia, let the countdown begin!!!!

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

We are back from our wonderful trip to the US! Everything went extremely well. We bought a house in an area north of Houston called The Woodlands and could not be happier! We love the area and cannot wait to start our new life there! We accomplished a great deal while we were gone. We bought both of our cars, set up the gym memberships and finished everything related to the house. We are now back in Russia for 22 more days, and then on Feb 25th we fly out and begin a whole new adventure back in Texas!

During these last few days I have a list of goals that I would like to reach. It will not only help the time here pass by, but it will also give me a chance to finish strong the journey I started here 3 years ago.

Thank you for your comments and support while I was gone in the states, you guys are the best!!! I am going to spend some time this week getting back with all of your emails and comments. I am looking forward to getting back to the states so that I can start posting my workouts again. 2009 is going to be such a great year and I look forward to sharing my new and exciting journey with you!

Goals for February -

1. Log my foods daily
2. Drink at least 128 oz of water
3. Complete schedule workout for the day
4. Take all vitamins and supplements.

Schedule for the week -

Tuesday - Off (recovering from flight back.....jet lag!!)
Wednesday - ST full body with 45 min treadmill walk with running intervals
Thursday - 45 min treadmill walk with running intervals
Friday- ST full body with 45 min treadmill walk with running intervals
Saturday - Off
Sunday - Off

    Wow, what an adventurous life you lead!! Congrats on moving back to the states and on your new home!
    P.S. I have to share...we recently traveled as a family overseas for the first time and my oldest son who is 4 got the flu within days of returning to the States, he was the usual stuffed up and very, very tired both from flying and from being sick. When my Mom asked him if he had jet lag he replied "yeah I got some of that jet wack, it makes your nose run awot and makes you get a fever!" I thought it was cute anyway :) Welcome back State side. emoticon

    I love that everything in your life is an adventure. Your attitude is inspiring, and I cannot wait to see what you'll get into next!! I like to think your motto is something like - Live it up and be fabulous!! That's how I see you living your life, anyway. I hope that I can one day do the same.

    Congratulations on your new house and car! 3 weeks of finishing of 3 yrs-- what about dedicating each week to each year and doing a little recap for yourself?

    I absolutely love your new attitude about performance vs. weight loss!

    Enjoy the last 3 weeks!

    Welcome back to the U.S.! The Woodlands is a beautiful and peaceful place to live. I love it up there with the beautiful trees! Don't forget to check out the 10 for Texas race in October...It's gorgeous and breathtaking running through the trees!

    You could have not settled in a better place!!!

    Nice to hear that you are home!
