So here we welcome day two. Well today started off decently, except for the fact that Erik is sick. It hurts SO very much, more than I could ever explain to know the person you love isn’t feeling well and you can’t take care of them. I want more than anything just to be there with him to baby him and take care of him and make him feel better. But all I have are my words of love and concern to make him feel better. Which he says works 🙂 which I know because it works that way for me, but it’s just not the same as being there with him. To make matters worse he still had to go into work today and do a grueling job, my poor baby. I feel so bad for him and I miss him so much. Thankfully he’ll be home soon though. On the plus side, I had an awesome breakfast burrito with chipotle and monteray jack cheese chicken sausage, green pepper, red pepper, one egg, velveeta cheese, and a wheat tortilla. So good and everything was measured and calorie counted of course. But so worth it. So that’s the gist of my morning.
Onto the afternoon. After Erik and I got off the phone so he could go to work, Shana and I went to the gym. I talked to my personal trainer for the first time and going to the gym just got a lot more difficult than treadmill machines and elipticals. I have quite a few things I have to do every time I go (which is 3 times a week) and I’m not very happy about it, but hey you gotta do what you gotta do to get healthy. The only thing I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing are planks, because they are grueling and I don’t like them one bit. But maybe once I get into better shape I will start doing them. Who knows though, I may still do them even though I say I won’t. Either way I’m going to do my best to follow the exercise regimen I’ve been given. Boy was I sore afterwards though. Haha but that’s what happens when you don’t work the muscles I’ve worked today. Shana was a trooper and did them with me. She’s great. 🙂 Then Shana and I drove to go see my dad so I could give him his (late) fathers day card. It’s like a 30 minute drive but it’s worth it to see him for a bit. Shana and I stayed and chatted with my dad and his wife from about 6:30 to 8:30 it was a nice time. Then we decided it was time to come home. I thought about Erik all day and wondered how he has been doing at work. I miss him so much. But, on a plus to my afternoon Shana and I had some pretty emotional and just altogether nice talks during the ride there and back. So there’s my afternoon into my night time.
Onto my night time and arrival home. So just made it home sometime after 9:00 and chatted with my grandmother for a bit, and my mom but she was in one of her moods (will explain about my mom and what that means at another time). Then made Shana and I some delicious salads for dinner, consisting of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, she had baby spring salad mix and I had hearts of romaine, butter and garlic croutons, light ranch dressing, and mine had some more of that chipotle monteray jack cheese chicken sausage. So good! Again all counted and measured. I have to eat one more time tonight before bed because I really haven’t eaten much today and Erik gets concerned if I don’t. So we ate and now here I am posting my blog, missing my love and wishing it was midnight (a little over an hour to go) and getting ready to go shower then write down the meals I’ve had so far in my food journal. So that’s pretty much been my night so far and once Erik gets home he’ll call me and we’ll talk for a couple of hours tonight then we’ll talk in the morning like always until about 4:00 pm my time. The best part of my day is always when I get to hear his voice. I love him so much. 🙂 But so there you have it, the gist of my day all wrapped into one blog. It’s been a pretty good day though. I’m happy. 🙂 So now onto my shower and then getting to hear my baby’s voice! Yes!
So to conclude my day, I just want to say to anyone living with their boyfriend/girlfriend, fiance/fiancee, or spouse, just please cherish the little things, even when they are sick because lets be honest, you wouldn’t know what to do without being able to take care of and baby your love while they are whining and being sick no matter how much you say it annoys you. And to those of you in a long distance relationship, one day, if you stick it out, you’ll be able to have those little moments with your love right by your side and it’ll be all worth it. 🙂 Also in conclusion, I just want to thank my best friend and (non-blood) sister Shana, for everything she’s done for me, for understanding the hardships of Erik and I’s relationship but still being able to see and appreciate how beautiful it truly is and for accepting and adoring the man that makes me happier than anyone. That my friend, means more to me than you’ll ever know. I love you Pokey. 🙂 And I love you too Erik my baby. (he’ll be reading this later. haha 🙂 ) So ta-ta for now folks, will blog soon. Goodnight world.
