Week With My Boyfriend

IMG_4518

So last Friday night I drove the 45 minutes to my boyfriend’s house to spend my spring break with him.  I didn’t have to work but he was still going to be working everyday.  He said that if I stayed at his house we would be able to spend some time together. Friday night we went to the movies to see Kong:Skull Island which was actually a pretty good movie. On Saturday he went on a bike ride and then we went to out lunch and got ready for our road trip to Waco.  We went to Waco Saturday night to take his daughter out for her 21st birthday.  We had a lot of fun and I met two more of his kids. I have now met 4 out of the 6 total. Sunday he was feeling really bad so I ended up driving us back to Grapevine. This week has been a whole lot more calm than the weekend. Monday night he cooked for us which is the first time he has ever cooked for me. Tuesday I actually got  a little upset with him for the first time. We went out to dinner that night and talked about it and I felt a lot better. Wednesday I went to visit my mom and then I went back to Grapevine to wait for him to get home.  He didn’t get home from work until after 8:30.  I was a little peeved but I knew it wasn’t his fault. He’s really busy at work right now. Last night we got dressed up and then we went out to dinner. We had a really good night. Now I know that I only have a couple of nights left with him.

The last few weeks I have been a bit concerned because there have been nights that my boyfriend hasn’t really been in as close contact as we were previously. After spending the last week with him, I have come to realize that his schedule really is crazy these days. He comes home and either goes to the gym or goes for a run. He doesn’t eat on a very good schedule and he works pretty late most days. He actually told me that he goes to bed even later when I’m not there because he usually works on his computer pretty late. I have been through so much in the last few years and when our level of contact changed I got worried.  My insecurities came to light to make me think there was a problem when there wasn’t really one. I kept the feeling to myself until last night when I told him what I had been feeling. He assured me that he would tell me if there was something I needed to worry about. I know my insecurities are probably ridiculous because my boyfriend introduces me to his friends when we are out.  He has also introduced me to all but two of his children. He makes plans in the future. He even told me last night about a trip he is planning on taking to Galveston this summer. He told me he would like me to go with him if possible. I was a bit surprised that he would ask me to go with him to Galveston in March when the trip isn’t until July. He always tells me that he wants to build a future with me. I worry about how that’s going to happen with all the responsibilities that we both have to deal with. I know that I really like being in Grapevine because it is so much closer to my mom. When I finally sell my house in a few years I need to make sure that I am closer to her. I will really miss my boyfriend after spending so much time with him this last week. He’s so sweet that no matter how much stuff he has in his hands when he comes home he always kisses me as soon as he gets home. I wonder if it would be like that all the time if we lived together on a daily basis.

Working Out

So I have tried getting back into a workout routine for the last few months but honestly I haven’t been able to get myself motivated. I would exercise a couple of days a week but I could never remain consistent with my workouts. So after spending the weekend with my boyfriend in Grapevine I decided that it was time to make a change. Last Monday, I started T-25 again.  I’ll be honest that first workout just about killed me and the next day wasn’t much better. I made myself stick with it though until Friday.  I was supposed to do a double workout on Friday but I wasn’t feeling well so I skipped it. I didn’t tell my boyfriend about the workouts at first and I’m not even sure why. Last Wednesday he came over to take me to dinner and I ended up telling him.  We didn’t really talk about it but I kept up my workouts through Thursday and then I did my stretch workout on Sunday. I was really tired Monday morning because I didn’t really sleep well. I got a message from my boyfriend on the way to work.  He told me that he could really tell the difference in my body from the workouts and he encouraged me to keep them up. I have to say it made me feel so good because I can barely see a change in myself. He has always been so awesome and he has always told me that I am beautiful the way that I am but it was so nice to have him support me in this new venture. I know that I don’t have to workout to make him attracted to me but it is nice that he is so observant that he would notice the changes so quickly too. He has a perfectly sculpted body from all the working out he does and sometimes I wonder what it is that he sees in me. I’m just not used to being with someone like him. He pays so much attention to me and he really does make an effort to spend time with me and stay in contact with me. I’m not sure if we will figure out how to make the future work long term but he definitely gives me hope that the future can be so much brighter than my past. I wish I could see him every day instead of only on weekends or occasionally during the week. I am truly happy with this man and I can’t wait to see what our future holds.
