Now that our busy season at work is finally ending and I’m more into a routine with life, I am excited to come back to the blogging world. I’ve really missed it and you all!
Starting where we left off… I’ve lost almost 40 lbs since Valentine’s Day (taking the very slow route, obviously). I was at a standstill over the summer because work was just insane and I didn’t make time for it.
We officially set our wedding date, FINALLY. We will be getting married on May 16, 2013 (my parent’s anniversary… insert “aww” here) ;) in FLORIDA! Get excited! We will actually be going down for the whole week and spending much-needed quality time with family. As we get older, it’s harder to make as much time for grandparents, aunts and uncles with work and outside commitments. One of the reasons Taylor and I decided to have a destination wedding was so that we could get uninterrupted time with just family. We will still have a big ‘ole bbq reception when we get back for everyone else too (which I’m also excited about). It will be casual and in Taylor’s parent’s backyard in Louisville (they have several acres and it’s BEAUTIFUL).
Our 7 bedroom beach house!
Because we’re now going to the beach (and I want to be healthy in my wedding photos), we have set some goals for each of us and have started working out together and eating healthy. Last night we had our first joint-session with my personal trainer, Jodie, and she absolutely kicked our butts. Longest hour and a half of my life. We were both drenched and gross. Very romantic. J Here is a photo when I regained enough strength after training to raise my arm to take a picture (excuse the blurriness from my shaky-muscle arm... also I keep editing it and rotating it sideways but for some reason the picture is still like this; help!)
Super attractive, no?
We’re meeting again tomorrow morning at 6am. AM. So wrong. And on my day off. Double wrong.
I also started keeping track of my food/exercise on the MyFitnessPal app again. I had Taylor download it yesterday to use too J It’s a pretty great journal; I have yet to stump it with my food search. It even had Taylor’s snack of Big’s Hot-BBQ flavored sunflower seeds (gross).
Thank you, google!
So are you a morning or evening worker-outer?
Do you keep a food/exercise journal?
Did you/would you pick a destination wedding?
I’m glad to be back!
