Renee - Update on moi...
Well, you had it all right. Bry was working at Nissan & I was happy as a lark at Neal's Health and Fitness Center.
I was doing a weight training cycle that didn't involve t-tapp, so I felt it respectful to not post here. I did miss everyone that I had gotten to know on this forum though. Anyway, I started out tapping and weight training, but with early mornings (I got up around 3:30) & late nights (I rarely slept before 11) it was too taxing. I even dropped my weight workouts to only 4 a week instead of 6!
I got into some heavier weight training, and talk about definition! WOW! I got some great definition and a little more size in the quads & I finally have a defined bicep (although not really cut yet). I got up to 290 lbs. on the leg press (not including the 45 lb. sled that carries the plates) & 20 lb. dumbbells for upper.
Anyway, you know that I don't fear "bulk" anyway, for me, it seems that the heavier weights helped me trim down - I lost 2" per leg in all areas + another 1/2" in the waist (now I'm at 29.5", still not my old 26", but not my post preg 36" either! LOL).
About 2 months ago Bryan decided that car sales was a little too scary. He wasn't selling much & while the guarantee was good money, it wasn't a forever kind of arrangement & he felt guilty about not selling enough to earn that guarantee. The economy is terrible in Odessa anyway, so we decided to move to a bigger area.
He started applying all over Texas & on-line with airlines (that's what he did in the military). No offers. He spent a week in San Antonio & Austin, and another week in Dallas. Nothing. SO he started working for his uncle Ryan (his namesake), in woodworking just to make some extra cash while he waited to hear from someone.
He got an offer in Florida, but it was a 2 yr job only & ultimately we didn't feel that it would benefit us (since we don't want to settle there anyway). So he went back to Dallas (where his uncle Ryan lives). He started working for him again since we really needed the money (my 5.50 an hour wasn't even close to cutting it!).
Then he enrolled Aspen in school there (Ryan actually lives in Point, which is about an hour from North Dallas, and the school Aspen goes to is in Greenville, about 30 min from Dallas). So now it was just me and Caeleb, my youngest at home. It was much easier to have just one little one to drag to work with me in the dark hours of the morning!
Then something unexpected happened... I was opening up one morning & I saw our maintenance man naked in the men's area! It was before hours, and I am supposed to be the only one in the building so it wasn't an excusable thing.
The owners didn't seem overly concerned (this man didn't even try to turn away or cover himself, he just stood there and said "hi" like it was no big deal!). I found out that 3 other co-workers and at least one member have seen Raul nude before as well. One girl saw him in the women's area at 5 in the afternoon (peak time) coming out of the showers! What was he doing there at that time of day in the women's shower I still don't know!!! Pervert!
SO, I also found out that he had been hitting on one of our aerobics instructors that is married (he's married too, and she is good friends with his wife!). Now I was uncomfortable enough to give 2 week notice - this guy was too weird!
His wife heard about his indiscretions through a friend of hers that talked to the owners about it so she called ME at the gym & asked what was going on. I told her everything - as a wife myself I'd want to know if my husband was being sick!
Anyway, he called me to gripe me out that I'd caused him trouble at home (gee, sorry). I informed him that he'd caused the problems himself with his inappropriate behavior. Of course he pleaded his case that he didn't know I was there & all that crap. I knew he heard me coming because I turn on the radio & everything before I go back there.
Anyway, he kept me on the phone at work for at least 10 min & I finally said I had a customer waiting (which I did) & so
