Once a deployment begins, many of us make an extensive to-do list. We think that we'll have a lot of time to get things done and meet our self-assigned goals. In reality, it doesn't always work out that way, so don't worry if you find that R&R or redeployment is on the horizon and your to-do list is far from done. You're not alone. That's perfectly normal. In fact, if you're to-do list is done, we banish you for life from the military spouse club, because.....we're insanely jealous and you make the rest of us look bad.
Many of us set a fitness goal: Get in shape. Slim down. Tone up. Again, it doesn't always work out the way we had planned. One day you look at the calendar and realize that your spouse will be home in a few weeks. Then you look down at your thighs. Oops. You panic and scramble to find the quick fix. The thing that's going to tame those thighs in four short weeks.
Is there such a thing?
We'll find out on Thursday evening when fitness guru Stew Smith will join us on SpouseBUZZ Talk Radio. Stew will talk to us about making fitness a lifestyle, and not a quick fix. However, we live in the real world, so for those of us who are in a virtual panic to tone the flab and get results fast, Stew will offer us some tips on what works best in these situations.
