Ugh I havent been to the gym in like a week because of sorority recruitment. It is literally killing me. I try and wake up early and go but since my nights have been so long I just can’t do it. I cannot wait for Monday when recruitment is over and my butt is back in the gym. Don’t get me wrong I love recruitment but my body is feeling sluggish I am loosing energy and obviously have just been maintaining my weight. I WANT TO GET BACK TO THE GYM!
Okay going to post a few wedding photos on here :)
Well tumblr world I had an amazing wedding and an even more amazing honeymoon! Pictures to follow :)
About to go sit through 4 hours of review (2 hours for each class) then taking two exams back to back for which those review sessions are for. And while I feel like tonight is going to drag on and on I am okay with it because once I finish those exams I am completely done with summer school and can finally enjoy my wedding week (or whats left of it). I haven’t gotten to down about being so busy with school this week because it has made the time go by faster and I know that because of my hard work I will be able to graduate early so it is all worth it. But so many people have been asking me…hows the wedding week going? And I haven’t been able to say good because I have literally been studying all week long. However the happy emotions are totally kicking in and so I know I am quickly loosing focus on school so it is a darn good thing my professor(who I have for both classes) is letting me take the exams tonight.
Earlier Chris and I went to church to meet with the Organist and finalize our songs and it was so exciting.. we were the only ones in there and of course I started crying because I am just so happy I can’t stand it. And yesterday a girl in my class who I know but not very well (I have never hung out with her) brought me a wedding present and of course I started crying. Chris makes fun of me and says you need to pull yourself together its not even the weekend yet.. but I know he will cry on Saturday! Not a lot of tears, maybe only one but I promise when I round the corner and he sees me for the first time in my dress and I am walking towards him to finally become his wife he is going to at least let one tear roll down his face. I just know it!
was fabulous. I love going at 5am because the cardio room is completely empty so if the movie has already started I can play it from the beginning and I can turn the fans up as high as I want and I can talk to myself while working out without having people stare at me. Sometimes when I notice my speed is decreasing or I don’t have my heart rate up I motivate myself by coaching myself through it. It really works, I try and remove myself and pretend I am my own trainer and it really gets me going.
Whenever I have a fabulous workout I always want to weigh myself but I don’t because I am trying to not focus on the scale. I am going to weigh myself on Friday before the wedding just so I Can track my weight while we are on our honeymoon as I won’t have access to a gym but still plan on eating healthy and going for runs on the beach with Chris. I would love to be at 142 so I can say that I have officially lost 30 pounds however I can tell I am starting to gain muscle now so I am mentally preparing myself for my weight to have not changed. We shall see :)
I had a great weekend. We completely got everything for the wedding finished. We are meeting with the organist on Wednesday (because he has been out of town for like two months) and then we are all set. I cannot believe that Saturday is finally the day I get to become Mrs.Todd. I am so excited words cannot explain the feelings I am feeling. I know this week is going to drag out so slow because I just want the weekend to be here but I have two huge finals on Wednesday so I am going to focus on those today and tomorrow and hopefully that will make the first half of the week go by fast. Then Thursday I am working half a day and then going to the nail salon with my wedding party and dropping some stuff off at the reception hall. And of course Friday is the rehearsal dinner but we are setting up the hall all morning Friday so I have a feeling its going to be a crazy hectic day. Luckily we organized everything this weekend to try and make it as smooth as possible. I CANNOT WAITTTTT…WEEK PLEASE GO BY FAST :)
I weighed in today at 144.5. I have lost a total of 27.5 pounds since starting this journey at the end of April. I know it may seem like it is taking a while for the weight to come off put I am loosing it the healthy way and they way I know I can keep it off because I Have changed my lifestyle, I haven’t been dieting.
My goal is to weigh in at 142 on my wedding day to say I lost 30 pounds total. That also gives me some room for the honeymoon. I will continue to eat healthy however since we are staying in a condo I don’t have access to the gym. Chris and I are going to run on the beach every morning though and well do some other activities that will ramp up our heart rates :) So I think I will be just fine.
AND NOW THERE IS ONLY 10 DAYS UNTIL THE WEDDING!!!!
AND TOMORROW IS MY BEST FRIEND’S (and bridesmaid) 21st BIRTHDAY! So I have the day off from work and school and couldn’t be happier about it:)
I just got a phone call from the Air Force officer recruiter I have been working with. I have been approved to move to the next step of interviewing with him to apply for OTS. He said it was no big deal for me to wait until after my honeymoon (which is in two weeks) to schedule it because I obviously can’t go until I graduate with my bachelors degree on December 15. Which is nice because the next 10 days are super hectic and then the wedding obviously and then we leave for Daytona. So I would be afraid I would be a hot mess in an interview because I am so focused on wedding stuff :)
I am not getting my hopes up as last year I joined Army ROTC and they even sent me to training and then came back and said that I was unable to continue because of my medical waiver/physical fitness. BUT now I am in the best shape of my life, at the lowest weight I have been at in awhile, and stronger than ever.
I am so excited to see what can come of this-I want it so bad. It would be the best opportunity for Chris and I both.
nervous to get on the scale tonight..I have been bad the past few days and really that is the first time in 3 months I have been bad! I am disappointed in myself but I am not letting it get me off track. Hitting the gym hard tonight after class before my weigh in.
Wish me luck.
but I am waiting to start my period!!!! I want to start so bad.. and no not because I think I am pregnant. Chris and I have been abstinent this entire year (our personal decision for the months leading up to our wedding) but I am getting my first depo shot this week but I have to be on my period before I can get it and I want to get it asap so it has plenty of time to kick in (doctor told me only a week) before the wedding! I never thought I’d say this but come on menstrual cycle!
I had a terrible workout this morning, I was slow and groggy and just do not feel like I got much accomplished which stinks because yesterday was my day off and Saturday evening I went to the Irish festival and indulged a bit so I really needed a good workout.
I am thinking about going back to the gym tonight just to do another round of cardio. I am weighing on Wednesday and I really hope to be under 150. It will give me so much confidence with my wedding only being 19 days away!
Anyone have any thoughts on doing 2 work outs in day? Pro’s? Con’s?
I was feeling a little unmotivated at the gym lately so last night I decided to weigh in even though it is 6 days before my next actual weigh in. Boy am I glad that I did. I weighed in at 150.5! I needed that because the last time I weighed in I only lost 1 pound so I am glad to see some progress. I have officially lost 21.5 pounds and feel great. I can’t wait to weigh in again on Wednesday (my official weigh in day) and hopefully will be out of the 150s!!
was today. However I already had an idea of my weight since I went to the doctors yesterday. I only lost 1 pound over the last two weeks however I am pretty proud of that because i splurged on my bachelorette party and at my wedding shower so I am just happy I didn’t gain anything.
So of course I had a killer workout and pushed myself to exhaustion which felt amazing.
I found out I got a B in psychology which made me super happy since I thought I did terrible in that class.
And now I am at work.
End random post :)
Just registered for graduation in December! I AM SO EXCITED:) Cannot wait to be done!!
well this past weekend was my bachelorette party and bridal shower! It was so much fun. First on Saturday my friend Shelia came and picked me up as I got kicked out of my house so my mom and sister could set up! So we went and had five guys (good pre drinking food) but I only had a mini hamburger with mushrooms to try and keep it somewhat health conscious. Then we went to apple bees and had a celebratory drink :) and went to the nail salon. And let me just tell you that they nail salon’s air conditioner was out and it was so freaking hot I thought I was melting! Anyways after that we went to my neighbors so we could get ready and that was quite the experience because my neighbor only has two sons so he was not prepared to have two girls come in and turn his bathroom upside down haha
So on the bachelorette party- we started at my house and had dinner and did gifts (many were very inappropriate!) but I got some cute lingerie for the honeymoon and the one I am going to wear the wedding night :)! So we all go outside and are taking pictures waiting for the party bus to arrive and my sister comes over and blind folds me. I was super nervous because I said several times that I DO NOT WANT A STRIPPER. Well there was a stripper. It was so awkward that I left the room half way through him being there. Once I gained my composure I came back in in time for him to leave. That was an experience I never need to have again. Then the party bus came and we went all around town. We went to one club that is country up until midnight but my sister thought it was only up until 11 so we got there and everyone was line dancing, which is cool if that’s your thing but its really not mine. And I was getting so frustrated because Lady Gaga came on and even the backstreet boys and everyone was still line dancing, I wanted to yell ” THERE IS NO LINE DANCE TO LADY GAGA!” So me being my obnoxious self just danced up and down the dance floor in between everyone who was line dancing. It was priceless to say the least.
Sunday was my bridal shower and it was so much fun, all my family came in town for it so it was great seeing everyone! I got lots of great stuff for Chris’ and I’s house (when we move out, we are living at home with his parents for 5 months after the wedding until we both graduate). It was all around a fabulous day!
Now that we had all the pre-wedding celebrations I am so ready for it to be here. It is still 39 days away- we had to have these parties this weekend because my sister leaves for medical school in two weeks and she planned everything. So now we just have to wait, here’s to hoping the next 5 weeks fly by :)
