On Friday morning I got my butt out of bed and went to Spin in the morning. Class was in the new gym location which I was excited to check out. What a surprise I was in for, not only was it a new gym, they raised the prices so much that I can no longer afford to go. I am still upset about this. My wedding is 9 months away and I don't know what I am going to do.
I spend all my weekends looking at homes that are crappy, too expensive, or in a flood zone, or some other reason. I really hate this. The wedding is 9 months away and I know we have still have time but the still...that clock is ticking.
I really hate this weekend.

Been doing wedding planning, got ready for E-pics photoshoot and now we are in the process of buying a house. We are going back and forth with offers and I hope everything works out.
I'm really nervous. We found a house that needs work but it has the space that we need. We've been househunting since last March (8 months now)
Work has been hell for almost 2 months. They installed a new software system that has basically made my work life crazy. I'm so looking forward to this nice 4 day weekend.
I had been keeping up with my weight training class every week. I didn't make it the last two weeks because appointments came up and I couldn't go. I really want to get back to doing Spin. But it seems like every since I am have been planning this weekend, I've had the worst sleepless nights. I'm having a hard time falling asleep. Maybe because I have wedding details on the mind.
I'm hoping to clear my mind this weekend.

Anyways, I know this might sound like I am too hard on myself but I'm not, I'm being realistic. I have a CHUBBY face. Yes, I do!! I'm about 5'2" and I am about a size 4-6 (not bad) but I do carry some of my weight in my face. I know this because about 6 years ago, I was at where I was now. After a few episodes in my life, I had lost some weight and I saw pictures from 6 years ago and 4 years ago. Big difference in my face!!!
So this may sound a little crazy, but I'm not so much concerned about loosing pounds, I need to loose inches. I have about less than 3 weeks. Now I know that no one knows about my silly little blog but any advise would be great. I'm planning on stepping up my game and staying away from the junk food. I'm going to have to stay away from my usual pasta dishes.
Well I'm off to do some Yoga while my fiance sleeps away. (he had a bad headache last night)

Tonight I had brown rice with a thin slice of steak cut up. I cut up green olives with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and some salt and added them into this risotto. It was really delish.
Yesterday, I made a big boo boo. On Monday, my fiance wanted to make a cupcake in an ice cream cone. So what he did was poor the cake batter into the cones and baked them in the oven. He added vanilla frosting to the top and put sprinkles on top. It looked just like an ice cream cone. Well I should I thrown them away yesterday but instead, when I got home from work I had one to eat. The next stupid thing I did was pull out my 30 Day Shred and did 30 minutes of that. After, that I took a quick shower and I started to feel overtired. I had to lay down and then my stomach started to hurt. I felt like crap and very weak. I spent the rest of the night running to the bathroom and vomitting. I finally had to just sleep it off. The sugar high did me no good.
Tomorrow, I plan on going to spin at 6am (I should have gone this morning but after last night, NO!) and after work I am going shopping for bridesmaid dresses. I have no idea what I want my girls to wear but I am sure it will be a lot of fun!

So last week, I told you about a dress I totally loved. Well last Friday, I had the day off from work and my friend did as well. She is getting married in June. I asked her if she would come with me to check out the dress. So we drove up there and I looked like a pyscho because I had just been there the night before. I asked to try on the top 2 dresses and I did. My friend loved my Casablance dress on me. We added a belt to it and it looked beautiful. It actually looked better in daylight than it did when I first tried it on the night before. I love the dress!!!! I'm not looking anywhere else and when my mother comes back from Italy, I'm going to drag her there to see it. Here is the dress:
I know it is plain but add a belt and it looks unbelievable.
NOW.... The fiance and I are taking engagment pictures on Oct. 7th. And since I carry the weight in my face, I'm on a mission to loose some weight. I'm 5'2" and I weigh about 134lbs. I'm on the heavier end of my frame. I need to loose the jiggile on my thighs, tummy and arms. So I'm getting my fat thighs out of bed tomorrow at 4:50am and getting to spin class at 5:30.

I'll make it quick, I wanted something kinda trendy. However, trendy does not work for me. The best dress I put on was absolutely plain and the sales person put a belt on me. Awesome! I love the dress. My sister and friend said I should really look at more places though. Well I guess, its just so time consuming. Grrr....

Very busy few days, my parents are getting ready to leave tomorrow for their month long trip. Loving forward to having some peace and quiet in the house. I'll actually be able to do somethings that will not include remarks from my parents :) Do you think there are too many adults in this house? You thought right.
My fiance and I have thought about how our future will pan out in the next 13 months until our wedding. He has been over stressed these past few weeks (to the point where I started to worry) I stepped up and put my WOMAN foot down and decided we should hold off on the house hunt until after we are married. We will each spend the next few months at home saving money and at the end of next winter, we'll look for an apartment. I'm hoping the apartment hunt will go much better than the house hunt.
Anyways, rain rain and more rain its been in Boston. One good thing is that I've been hitting the sack a little early (something that I need to get back to doing) I even thought about going to spin tomorrow morning. (If I can get my butt up at 4:50am)
So I'm just going to walk my butt into bed now and watch a little TV before I go into dreamland.

I got a mani and pedi after work (relaxing) and now I am going to tidy up a bit and get ready for bed early.
My parents are off to Switzerland and Italy at the end of this month so I'm planning a couple of get togethers at my house. I have about a 100 social favors to pay back. Anyways, I'm going to sit in bed and write out my menu for my little parties. I'm only going to have pickies and drinks. I'm trying to come up with ideas on quick, easy and cheap ways to make food. I have this book, The Taste of HOme Cookbook. I picked it up at Marshall's for $10 a few months ago. I haven't had the chance to use it since I picked it up. I'd love some ideas. Hopefully, the book helps.
Well I am off to get ready for bed, I am hoping to get my butt up early tomorrow. Not sure why I can't wake up in the morning.
Until next time....I'll let you know about my menu :)

They aren't the cheapest snacks but they just taste so good. I want to put this in some basket or something but I don't have any good spot for them. Hopefully, I'll have my own place in the next 6-9 months. Living with my parents is okay, but there are just too many ADULTS in this house. Its about 5pm and I feel like I could just take a nap right now. The sun is in and out and its a little gloomy out there.

So I have a little motivation for this month, I have a wedding to attend on August 28th in Newport, RI. I'm wearing a one shoulder black dress. I think those dresses always look best on a slightly toned person. I know I'm not fat but I definitly need some major toning. I'm 28 years old and I don't have a child so I should be in the best shape of my life. Really, what excuse do I have??(Besides, planning a wedding, finding a house and trying to make money) That is just every day life (I'm tricking myself to think that)
Anyways, I'm tryin to jab it all in. It I feel like in a way I am neglecting my friends. I don't see them much but I feel that in order to accomplish what I need to accomplish in the next 14 months I have to be a little selfish. Now I know that absolutely NO ONE reads my posts so I guess you can just call this my online diary. Maybe one day someone a little wiser than me will give me some advise.
Until next time...

So I spent my weekend nursing him and trying to tackle all weekend errands. Busy Busy.
So the good news is that I received my bridal shower invitations in the mail today. I had a my friend use photoshop and do some editing and I sent it to Snapfish to develope.
They look great.

I apologize for not having the best camera, I really wish I had one that brought out what the make up really looks like.
Tonight I have a free night (no appointments, no major plans) Need to fold some laundry and just relax. I'll post more pictures in the future. Let me know if you want to see more. (if anyone even reads this)
Monday, July 26, 2010
Anyways, tonight a made myself the scalloped tomato and crouton dish that I saw on a few posts. It was pretty delish!
Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

I had this huge craving for a cannoli. I decided, what the heck, I got in the car and drove to the North End. THis is where I stopped:
Tuesday, July 20, 2010
I weighed in at 132lbs. Not too bad but not great. I main goal is to get to 125lbs. I know its only 7 pounds but its been the biggest stuggle for me just to get under 130lbs. I know I need to work out more but I'm doing what I can at the moment. Life is keeping me busy but trying to not let it get in the way. Advice is welcomed from anyone.
I'm going to bed now before I stay up too much longer and can't wake up in the morning.

Wedding was fun, I'll post pictures up soon.
I'm hoping to conquer the Videographer project this week. Hopefully, I can have this booked by the end of the month.
As far as the house hunting goes, not finding much. Its frustrating. We have been looking since March and just recently, (2 weeks ago) just got back on the wagon on this. Any advice from people who purchased homes???? I need to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Tonight, its all about relaxing. Tomorrow, I'm going to wake up early (7:30am) and head to Spin. This would be my first Saturday morning spin class EVER and then I have an 11am appointment to get a massage at Massage Envy. Have you ever heard of this place? Basically, you are a member for 1 year and you pay $50-$60 a month and you get one massage every month. Well I am due for one so I am going to enjoy because after I am married and own a house(I'm hoping for a house) I won't be doing a lot of anything that involves dough.
Since is suppose to rain ALL day tomorrow, I'm going to take the time to do some much needed cleaning. I swear I clean all the time, I don't know how it gets all messy again.
Wednesday, July 7, 2010
So I am a member of Planet Fitness, I say member because I pay membership fees but don't actually use it. I do take Spin at a smaller place that just does Spin/Yoga and a few other classes. Since it is the summer time, I would rather run outside than go to PL to run on the trendmill. I'm not the best runner (well I am not a runner at all actually) but I'm trying to build up to it. I want to run outside but there is a heat wave going on in Boston. So hot, like don't leave your air conditioned house if you don't have to. I checked the weather and the heatwave doesn't look like it will end soon (eh). So now, I don't know what to do. I could wake up at the crack of dawn or jog at 9 at night. Usually, it would cool down at night but nope! Not this week. I think tomorrow, I'll suck it up and get my butt to PL and run on the trendmill (in AC). I've been going to spin (brownie points for me) (I shouldn't say brownie, thats fattening, I should say "Carrot points! ha)
BTW, I booked my Wedding photographer!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to stop talking about it now or else I'm going to go to bed with wedding stuff on the mind and won't sleep. Till next time...

As I write this, I'm watching "Losing it" with Jillian. I needed to pull out the tissue a few times.
I have something else to add, this weekend is going to be BBQ mania. I have THREE to go to. Two in one day!!! Everyone loves a BBQ but sometimes you just keep eating just cause there is so much to try. I plan on having full control (at least 90%). haha.
Until next time...

I struggle with 5 pounds. Its like I have to watch every bite and double my workouts. Trying to find a happy medium. Going to try to make it thru the week.
