Hey, Guys! I will keep this as short as possible...I'm 28 and I was in the Army 5 yrs and used to be in good shape. I got out in 2004 and on Dec 12, 2006 I almost died of a tubal pregnancy. Paramedics, doctors, and nurses saved my life, took my right tube, and pumped 4 bags of donated blood into me (God bless you blood donors! No really, I seriously appreciate YOU keeping me alive! If I knew who you were I'd be forever in your service!) and I was in intensive care trying to recover from being so close to death. I lost a lot of weight in the hospital (I was fine b4 I went in) and after I got out and started feeling normal...I gained extra pounds. The Tomb Raider Lara Croft pic of me was taken OCT 31 2006, right before my hospital bout. I now am 1.5 sizes bigger and I don't feel healthy at all. We've moved most of our eating habits to SBD but man it's hard when you have kids who want snack foods for school that aren't cheese sticks. Blast. Oh, and BTW, I just re-joined the Army National Guard as a Broadcast Journalist and if I don't pass my PT test I will be moved to a different job...and I don't want that! I really want to be a journalist! We'll see what happens! :D (PS: My PT test minimum standards are 45 situps in 2 minutes, 17 push ups in 2 min, and 2 mile run in 20:30....the run and sit ups are what I'm concerned about)
I'm also a sales manager of 13 people, mom of 2, wife to an Army recruiter, serve on 2 city boards in Maricopa, AZ, am a drilling reservist, and am in the middle of my first MBA class. woohoo.
