Army Paisley – Her Life Now

Long time no see… So over the last year I got a bunch of emails from soldiers who were getting ready to go to MIBOLC. They asked a lot of questions and also let me know how helpful this blog was. Happy to hear…. but I failed to respond because I was busy creating and then taking care of this ball of joy…

Image

Not sure if you all knew that I was pregnant, but now you do. 

Image

Harper – born June 24th, 2013 🙂

Image

To say the least, it’s been crazy over here. She’s beautiful, wonderful, happy and smells like Heaven.

Image

I’ll start posting different things about being a mom because that is now a new component to the life of Army Paisley.

Speaking of… I got promoted. I’m now a First Lieutenant. Nothing really has changed, but I just can’t mess up as much. I’ve been working on my OER for the past few weeks. That stuff is so fun. Not. It’s hard to remember all that you’ve done in the past year. Especially when you’re only at drill two days a month. Oh yeah and then add a pregnancy and a baby in the mix… Forget about it!

As for running, that has been very limited these days. If you’ve ever tried to run with a stroller you know what I mean. It’s just not the same. Baby starts crying and then you have to deal with that. Your 3 mile run just turned into 2 hours. I’m good. But, I am totally back at CrossFit. I’m pretty much sore all the time because of it. But it’s the best feeling. Well that, and just not being pregnant any more. Pregnancy blows.

Lastly… I’m also back at my civilian job. They are allowing me to exclusively work from home which is totally awesome. I’m constantly surprised at how lucky I truly am. I’m using my mom’s camera these days so I’ll start snapping more pictures of my life. I don’t know that it’s more interesting… just different. 

Keep sending me questions via email, I love hearing from all of you.

Shark Weekend

 

 

A day in the life of Army Paisley… Civilian style:

My days immediately start with a shower and then a big breakfast.

20120813-183507.jpg

 

This particular morning I couldn’t make up my mind between salmon and almond butter… so I had both. I also have a cup of coffee. I never finish it, but it’s next to me while I’m getting ready.

I be-bop to music while I put my make up on. I set two alarms for after I’m already awake. One for 7:45am as a reminder “you have 15 minutes before you need to leave the house.” And then another at 8:00am “You need to leave, like NOW!” It ensures that I get to work in time. There have been so many mornings when I look at the clock and think, “CRAP! I’m already 5 minutes late to work!!! AHHH!!” I hate those mornings so I choose not to re-live them.

Then I get to work by about 8:15am. Check my email, chat with my co-workers and then dive into my plan for the day.

These days my plan in literally all mapped out for me…

20120813-183513.jpg

 

At some point I stop for lunch. Rarely do I eat out, unless I’m riding with a manager. So I bring my own lunch. It’s usually something really simple that I threw together that morning. This day was mixed lettuce with lunch meat, leftover chicken and goddess dressing.

20120813-183525.jpg

 

I also stop for a drink around 3pm. My typical choice is a Starbucks tea, but this day it was a cherry limeade slurpee. I’m not usually a slurpee fan, but I made a big exception for this glorious flavor!

20120813-183532.jpg

 

Later I’ll snack on something before heading back to the office around 4pm. Strawberries or coconut flakes or zuchinni or trail mix.

20120813-183543.jpg

 

And on the days that I’m struggling… a cake pop and iced coconut coffee will do the trick!

20120813-183551.jpg

 

Between 5:30 and 6:30 I leave the office and head straight to CrossFit. I change at the gym and hang out with my “box friends” until class starts. Or I catch up on blog reading, facebook or phone calls.

By 8pm I’m on my way home to make dinner, shower and go to bed.

But on Friday nights… It’s a little different…

Last Friday I finally made it out for the night.

20120813-183607.jpg

 

I met up with my “box friends” at Rock Bottom… a brewery in Campbell with delicious beers!

20120813-183620.jpg

 

I had two of the White Ale’s. Yum!

Saturday

Justin and I made a day trip to Monterey, CA. It was pretty toasty here in San Jose… so the sub 60 degree weather by the water was perfection!

20120813-183629.jpg

 

I sported BOTH sweaters. I’m kind of a wuss.

20120813-183640.jpg

20120813-183647.jpg

 

Of course we found ourselves at the Monterey wine tasting room.

20120813-183653.jpg

 

I was impressed by everything at “A Taste of Monterey” EXCEPT for their wine. No thanks… I’ll just pay for the tasting. No bottle or glass for you two? No, just the tasting, thanks. Blah. Call me a wine snob. I don’t care.

20120813-183711.jpg

 

But the view at the tasting bar was spectacular! Yes please!

20120813-183718.jpg

20120813-183725.jpg

 

Justin and I took a very long time deciding if we wanted to spend the $35 each to go to the Aquarium. I knew that if I didn’t go, I would have been disappointed. So we spent the money. Would I have done it again? No. But I would have regretted it had I chosen to pass.

20120813-183801.jpg

 

No doubt, the display was amazing. Just a little too many people for my viewing pleasure… if you know what I mean.

20120813-183809.jpg

 

The sharks… so cool!! My favorite was the hammerhead!!

20120813-183829.jpg

 

I love all the schools of fish swimming together. It always looks fake to me. Like they’re in a trance or something.

20120813-183837.jpg

 

And uh, giant turtles!?! Hello adorable!

20120813-183845.jpg

 

It was so much fun. But simply hanging out with Justin was the most fun.

20120813-183854.jpg

 

For the fellow long distance-ers out there… I feel your pain.

But thank God for the weekend. Cheers.

Shattered

 

 

 

20120808-200813.jpg

 

My job is really cool. Everyday I get to learn about awesome companies that make/sell really cool stuff… Like these beer brewing books. The company, “More Flavor!” sells items to help people brew their own beer, make their own wine and roast their own coffee. How cool, right!?!

Earlier that day I met with an owner who makes coffee that helps you burn fat… WHAT!?!? I’m sorry… but when it comes to coffee, this girl needs her half & half, sugar and everything in between… Nothing about my coffee is fat burning. But still a cool idea!!

I also get to eat with my managers at Panera. Have you tried their green tea? It’s amazing. I forgot how much I loved it until today.

20120808-200834.jpg

 

After work I had great intentions of going to CrossFit, but those were shattered when I thought of making coconut chicken for dinner.

And even more so when I decided to venture out to find Sunflower Market in San Jose.

Welp…. I found it!

20120808-200909.jpg

 

And they totally have shredded coconut…win!

20120808-200924.jpg

 

CrossFit dreams were also shattered by the thought that I NEED to find better work shoes… the tootsies are KILLING me. And yes the caps are completely necessary. Try walking around outside, all day in heels… sore feet much?

20120808-200932.jpg

 

I tried on five pairs. Of course I chose the Michael Kors. I asked the sales girl, “Now are you sure these are real leather?” Her response… “Um, they’re Michael Kors.” Enough said.

20120808-200943.jpg

 

They weren’t crazy expensive, but they were crazy comfortable. Sometimes you just gotta spend a little more for better quality. I’m hoping that these will be my “every day” shoes. One of my managers told me that she gets one pair, breaks them in and then just wears them every day… we’ll see how that goes. I’m not really a fan of wearing the same pair of shoes every single day. But I’m going to try it. If it means happy feet, then I’m a happer girl.

Never put pop chips on the top of your grocery bag. And never put the grocery bag in the passenger seat on the way home at 7pm. You’re bound to eat the entire bag.

20120808-200952.jpg

 

Not only were my CrossFit dreams shattered, but so were my coconut chicken dreams. Pop chips and new shoes won tonight.

20120808-200957.jpg

 

That’s okay. There’s always room for a glass of wine and feet propped up in this house.

20120808-201002.jpg

 

Plus, yesterday’s workout was ridiculously hard… We’re talking almost 40 minutes. In the land of CrossFit, that’s like a full-blown marathon.

  • 5 Rounds:
  1. 5 deadlifts (155lbs)
  2. 1 minute plank
  3. 50 double unders
  4. 20 wall balls (14lbs)
  5. run to trail head (400m)

End result: my calves are killing me!!!

Wine Lately

20120802-070803.jpg

Hi guys!! I’m going to have to do some SERIOUS catching up…

So last weekend, not the one we just had (I know), but the one before… it was my birthday!!

I spent it with two of my favorite people: Justing and Nadine.

20120802-070816.jpg

We went wine tasting!!

20120802-070836.jpg

I joined two wine clubs. I know, livin’ large… right! And it was absolutely perfect. I won’t have to buy wine for a few months now. Wine for dinner? You got it!

Justin made me these ridiculously cute wine glasses for my birthday with my initials on them. I left them at his house… but I’ll show them to you soon. He’s so creative.

Monday after work my mom and dad took me out to dinner at my favorite Sacramento spot… Paesano’s!!

20120802-070844.jpg

We split a pitcher of sangria, bruchetta and pizza. Yum! I was happy to see them.

Historically I’m usually away at training for the Army on my birthday. This was the first birthday in four years that I was in California. Thank goodness!!

And then Monday morning it was back to work!

20120802-070849.jpg

I’m ok with that. I posted a few birthday cards at my office. That one talks to me. It tells me that drinking three gallons of wine is perfectly normal. It’s my favorite card, obviously.

20120802-070854.jpg

Eats Lately…

I’ve been obsessed with smoked salmon on top of cream cheese and toast. Holy delicious! It’s a perfect combo of protein and carbs for breakfast.

20120802-070905.jpg

I also snagged a bag of chia seeds at TJ’s… I’ve yet to find something that I really like that involves these weird little seeds… but we’re getting there. I’m thinking almond butter, banana wrap with some chia sprinkled in there… we’ll see.

20120802-070910.jpg

I’m also back on a vitamin kick. These are the GNC Active Women’s vitamins. For whatever reason they keep me from feeling hungry all. day. long. HUGE fan… I can only take a few at a time and typcially forget to take them all by the end of the day. But I’m getting better. I know that vitamins are really important to take… so we’re getting there.

20120802-070915.jpg

CrossFit…

Since I barely have time to eat, I’ve only been doing CrossFit lately. I pack my gym bag every night and then head straight to the gym after work. I usually make it to the 7pm class which I’m thankful that my gym offers. Otherwise I’d be out of luck on the workout end. Todays workout was a toughie (when isn’t it?):

4 Rounds:

  • 20 ball slams (16 lb ball)
  • 20 crunches with the ball
  • 20 diamond push ups on the ball
  • run to the fence and back, with the ball

I finished in 14ish minutes. I’m getting back into the swing of things with CrossFit. It feels great to be back. The push ups were the hardest part for me. I had to break them up in sets of 5 to get them all done. And even go on my knees — yikes!! But my arms were still screaming despite my “modification”.

When I got home I cooked up a chicken apple sausage, protein shake and a large glass of wine.

Floors are mopped and vacuumed, counters are clean and sanitized… Now it’s time for some Grey’s Anatomy.

How was your weekend? Done any killer workouts lately? Ever get on cleaning sprees late at night?

Business. It happens.

20120726-202557.jpg

Life got CRAZY all of a sudden.

And I’ve only had time to snap 4 pictures in the last 4 day. Who am I!?!?

20120726-202603.jpg

And I’ve been wearing heels for 4 days straight… and this is what happens. Clearly I’m an amateur.

20120726-202637.jpg

And then I realize that I’ve been working so hard that I need a large glass of this.

20120726-202655.jpg

So this is what it feels like to have a tough, challenging, rewarding, FUN job!

Huh. Weird.

A few weeks ago I got a new job working for a sales company. It was only a small pay increase, but something that I’ve wanted for many years now. I’ll be working more hours that I was before, but I’ll be doing something that I enjoy. I’ll also have a lot more control over how much money I can/will make. Basically, if I work hard — and I’m good at my job, my paycheck will reflect that.

I’m stoked.

Now I just need to find some good walking high heels… any suggestions? I have a pair of Nine West’s… but I can’t wear them every day. Oh and here’s a tid-bit, feet swell when you walk… and then your shoes are TOO SMALL —- OUCH! I’ll be making a fairly large shoe investment this weekend. Icing/soaking my feet every night is not an ideal situation.

Thoughts from this week:

  1. CrossFit rocks. I’m a better person with it in my life. I’m happier, more focused and motivated. It’s good stuff.
  2. Really looking forward to Friday night… Justin is taking me to see Brad Paisley for my birthday!!
  3. Why is Costco so much fun? I’m in love with that store. Still. I got 80 keurig pods for $25. What!
  4. Bubble baths are sometimes a necessity — until you can’t stand them anymore. The sweat is getting into your eyes — then you know it’s time to get out before you overheat.
  5. Rocking out to Christian music in the morning while you put on your make up is quite possibly the BEST way to start out the day.
  6. Convincing your boss to buy an office keurig may be the best way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.
  7. When you burn chicken apple sausage, slather it in avocado — you’ll never know the difference. Truth.
  8. Busy people forget to eat. Swear. And I always thought that was an anorexic chick excuse. She’s not lying.
  9. Showing up to work 30 minutes late to your first day on the job won’t get you fired. Unless you show up in your PJ’s — I can’t help you there. True story, I was 30 minutes late to my first day. Tragedy. But I was dressed appropriately. Win.
  10. I’m STOKED to have weekends off. And work 9-5ish. Never take a job where you have to work weekends – if you don’t have to, that is. It pretty much sucks. Like the worst.

“Pulling Up” Mental Discouragement

November 2010 I started CrossFit at CrossFit Sac in Sacramento. Coach Dave opened my eyes to a whole new world/concept that most of us now know as CrossFit… or, “the crazy heavy weight lifting stuff.”

[Dave giving me a high 5 as I assume the “recovery position” (dead on the floor).]

In the beginning of my CrossFit adventure, I often felt and looked like this… tired, out of breath and defeated.

I still do.

Pull ups were always a goal and challenge for me. I dreamed of doing consecutive pull ups and mastering that skill. I first started with a green band. Over the next few months I moved up to smaller bands.

And then one day, I didn’t need the band anymore! I remember the first day that I got an unassisted pull up… I screamed. Out of sheer excitement. And then I did them every time I came to the box.  I was so proud of myself for finally getting a pull up. I overcame many obstacles that day. But primarily, I proved… once again, that with hard work — I could get what I wanted.

And that “girl” hands weren’t for me.

In December, I was the strongest and fittest I had ever been.

I was doing CrossFit 5+ times a week, running, yoga… truly over training. But was having a blast.

And then I left for Arizona.

CrossFit was no longer a part of my life. I tried my best to do body weight work outs, use the pull up bars, run, etc… it just wasn’t the same.

When I got home, pull ups were gone. I was using the band again. As much as I hated admitting it, I was really upset about this. I would say, “It’s the journey, right? Not the destination?” But I still felt sad that I had lost strength. That I had missed out on 5 months of CrossFit. And that I couldn’t do a fricken pull up anymore!

A few weeks ago, I found my pull ups.

And a new job.

By losing and then finding my pull up again, I realized something: I am in control of my happiness. I can make changes in myself and ultimately have what I want. If I don’t like a job, I can work hard and change that. If I don’t like that I can’t do a pull up, I can change that. My new CrossFit coach, Courtney, told me the other day, “Life is to short to spend it unhappy.”

I don’t like to spend too much time on the CrossFit bandwagon, but for me… it’s so much more than a workout. It makes me a better person in all areas of my life: Relationships, career, sleep, motivation, and so on. A simple concept such as a pull up has spoken volumes to me about what kind of person I am. I’m competitive, type A and persistent. I work hard for what I have. And at the end of the day, what I have is family and friends who love me.

Oh, and a pull up. Thank you very much.

Today, it’s about overcoming mental discouragement. Taking little bites at a time. Planning and working towards goals.

God + CrossFit

Days Off

After working 7 consecutive days, I was VERY ready for a few days off. I tossed around the idea of going home to Sacramento… and decided to just go for it. I was in desperate need of seeing these faces…

image

Nadine, my G.I. Jane.

image

And J-man… the boyfriend.

We met up for Taco Tuesday. Guess what I ate? Tacos! Guess what we drank? Beer!

It’s been great living in San Jose… learning a new job and gaining new experiences. But sometimes it’s really tough being away from my favorite people.

The next morning I grabbed Starbucks and met with my favorite MommaG!

image

We had sushi, it was delicious!

image

I then took full advantage of Ann Taylor’s sale and got a new dress for my final interview (yes, this girl is job hopping).

image

I also paid a trip to Jared’s to get my ring re-sized. I have big hands, what can I say!

image

At 3:30pm I met Nadine at Rocklin CrossFit. They moved to a new location! It’s HUGE!!

image

It’s not quite done, but I’m so happy for them. Love the high ceilings and all the extra space.

image

And it was a blast being there with this girl!!

image

The workout:

800 meter run

Then…

3 Rounds:

15 plyo push ups

10 dead lift

Then…

800 meter run

I pretty much died. Of heat and weakness. It is so freaking hot here, made me very grateful for bay area weather. Yes I miss the people of Sacramento… but NOT the heat.

Nadine and I grabbed Jamba afterwards… I was stoked to see Jamba coconut water!! YES!

image

Later Jay and I got Thai food and sat on the patio. Look at all these frogs!

image

They get close to the light because that’s where all the bugs hang out… dinner time!

image

image

Today I worked on a business plan and met Justing for lunch. We couldn’t wait to dive into the sweet potato fries!

image

Can’t say that Jack’s Urban Eats does the best with the SP fries — but they did the job.

Tonight I’ll be meeting my dad for a belated father’s day dinner and then heading back to the bay. It was a great few days, and now it’s back to work! Hope you all had a fantastic week — tomorrow is YOUR Friday!!

Giant Dipper

On Monday night, Justin arrived at my apartment. We quickly headed to Trader Joe’s for all the ingredients for these: Cherry Mojito’s.

image

Jacqueline accepted a drink as well. It was agreed, we’re definitely cherry-mojito fans.


I also made an easy dinner of sweet potato wedges and GF panini’s.

image

Can you tell I love my grill??

After dinner, and a few more Mojito’s… Sean, Jacqueline, Justin and I played a game…

image

I honestly can’t remember what it’s called. But here’s the basics: a “fill in the blank” (kind of like MadLibs) is put down. Each player puts a card face down that they think corresponds with the black “fill in the blank” card. The person, or judge then gets to flip over each card and decide which answer they like best. Whoever the card belongs to, they get the black card for that round. The one with the most black cards at the end of the game wins!

I didn’t think I was very funny at first, but soon got the hang of it. At some points I was laughing so hard that I was crying. It was an amazing Monday night. I’d say the first “roomie” night ever!! 🙂

The next morning Jay and I headed to Santa Cruz. We spent a few hours on the beach. We wanted to stay far away from the boardwalk… but couldn’t resist any longer.

image

We found ourselves in a long line filled with excited high schoolers. I LOVE the Giant Dipper. I could ride it over and over again. I don’t know if the ride itself is the fun part… but I think it’s a mixture of all the Santa Cruz memories and great times that I’ve had there.

This day was no different.

image

And away we went!! WEEEE!

image

After the beach we went to CrossFit West Santa Cruz. I’ve been to that gym before, so I was excited to go back. Jay was stoked because it has this huge fake grass strip in the middle. It’s literally the “Disneyland” of CrossFit gyms.

We loved the gym and coaches both so much that we even bought their T-shirts! I’m not biased towards any CrossFit gyms… except for my home CrossFit Envy. But one of my favorite things to do is go and visit other gyms in different cities and states. I think it’s cool that almost every CrossFit gym has the same look and feel. Working out is only a small portion of CrossFit culture.

I’m especially fond of CrossFit West because while I was there on Tuesday, I learned that I didn’t actually lose my pull ups. They had AMAZING pull up bars (aka: the kind for small grip girls like me). I hopped right on and knocked out about 10. I jumped off and turned to Justin, “DID YOU SEE THAT!?!?!”

About a week ago I was really sad with myself because I couldn’t do pull ups at CF Campbell. Being that I took some time off from CrossFit, I immediately attributed this to a loss of strength. Although some of that is true, turns out it was a bar issue. I’m used to a smaller bar!

I’ve found a home at CrossFit Campbell here in San Jose. They don’t have the pull up bars that I’m used to — so my goal is to master pull ups at the big boy bars too. This whole idea proves my point that pull ups are a technique issue, not always a strength thing.

After CrossFit, Justin and I headed back to the apartment to wash off all the sand and sweat. And headed to dinner…

image

Wednesday morning it was back to work for the two of us. Bummer. But we had a great few days. I’m really starting to love the bay area. ESPECIALLY this 70 degree weather. I’ll take that all summer, yes please!

Warrior Dash 2012

Saturday AM = CrossFit Works in Tucson

Um hi sexy coach Chris. And hi bad ass gym. Why didn’t I come here sooner!?!? ugggggg! It was so much fun! I was there for 2 hours. “Okaaaay. Now we’re going to do cleans. Okay now we’re going to do a ‘test’. Okay now go run 800 meters. Tired yet?”

I’m beyond sore. But I think I’m just weak because I seem to ALWAYS be sore these days.

But yah, CrossFit Works is fantastic. And it’d definitely be my box if I lived in Tucson. But I don’t, so at least I got to enjoy it ONCE while I was here. A great way to finish off my glorious Tucson weekends.

After CrossFit I checked into my hotel, showered and went out to do what I do best… shop. I needed to make a special trip to Trader Joe’s for Ryan. I mean, the guy is fighting a war in Afghanistan. It’s the least I could do.

20120429-164322.jpg

I’m still LOVING my hair. And finally got to wear my new yellow shirt that I got in Phoenix with my mom.

I also saw Safe House, the movie. With Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Um… hello sexy man!

Yes. Please.

Sunday Morning = Warrior Dash!!

As every good morning does, it started with a coffee.

20120429-164308.jpg

And running clothes. I stuck with black. It tends to do better in the mud… ha.

20120429-164316.jpg

If you look really close, you can see my “CrossFit hickey’s” from the barbell. OUCH.

After some minor navigation issues, Philip and I made it to the race. Barely!

The run was a blast. There was a TON of obstacles. And everyone around us was having a really great time. I loved the energy and motivation. The costumes were fun too!

After crawling though 2 feet of mud… my shoes had seen better days. I was perplexed. To throw away, or not. I decided to chuck them. I added to this monstrous pile! Gross, right?

20120429-164331.jpg

And so it was… hot and muddy.

20120429-164338.jpg

Warrior Dash was awesome. They might of had me at “free beer” — but the mud was fun too.

20120429-164342.jpg

After being pressure washed by fire hoses. Literally. We paid a visit to my favorite, In N Out. And yeah… I ate the WHOLE bun. Kill me.

20120429-164348.jpg

Super cool souvenir… a wrist band. It’s like I went to a club.

20120429-164354.jpg

And the shirt is awesome!!

20120429-164402.jpg

Now I’m putting together the Afghanistan packages.

20120429-164408.jpg

And eating copious amounts of cookie butter.

20120429-164414.jpg

Because it tastes like cookies. And butter. And my goal is to be 200 lbs. Obviously.

20120429-164421.jpg

Because I’ve heard that I’m “0% body fat. And one big muscle with twigs for arms.” Love ya too, bullies!

Mud runs are a blast. But it’s not so fun digging mud out of unspeakable locations. And wringing mud out of your Lululemon shorts… yah I just cringed a little bit too.

Packing?

Today involved too much cuteness.

Exhibit A:

20120427-183151.jpg

Exhibit B:

20120427-183158.jpg

Exhibit C:

20120427-183206.jpg

Stephanie and I paid a visit to the pet store and got to play with puppies and kittens. I was in animal heaven.

The cocker spaniel was my favorite. She looks JUST like my childhood dog, “Penny.” My parents got Penny when my mom was pregnant. And she lived for 13 years!

We also got well-deserved pedicures and had lunch at the Greek restaurant. I had a gyro pita. Yum!

It was the best 4 hours of the entire week.

Afterwards I started packing.

20120427-183212.jpg

Let me repeat myself… I STARTED PACKING!! It feels like not too long ago I was packing to come here!

20120427-183218.jpg

Totally surreal.

It’s looking like I’ll be able to fit everything. Barely. Good thing I lugged a bunch of stuff home 2 weeks ago. I’d have a hefty UPS bill if I hadn’t.

Tonight I’m laying low because this weekend is a fitness extravaganza!!

In the morning I’m going to Tucson’s CrossFit Works… for the first time. I figure it’s fitting. You know, visit a CrossFit gym during my 16th weekend (last) here.

I decided that I NEED one of these:

And so does Dianna.

Because we have a growing collection of traveling CrossFit t-shirts. And I’ve yet to re-pay her the favor. 🙂

Oh. And she’s picking me up from the airport — again. Because she thinks I’m awesome.

I’ll also be doing a sunset run with Steph tomorrow night. We’re thinking Rillito river or Sabino Canyon.

Sunday is the Warrior Dash.

I hear it’s kinda cool? We’ll see… Mud and obstacles… the new fitness craze these days.

Something I love:

XO
