Passing Time

So, its been quite a while since I wrote anything on my blog. Usually its because I'm either busy, or feel I have nothing beneficial to write about. Today I'm using this to pass some time until I get off work. I know not too many people read my blog postings, but for those that do, I'll try to keep from boring you as much as possible.

It is currently 134 days from my wedding. Most everything is done. Just some small stuff left to do. Nothing really to stress about - except for one little aspect - which I really do not care to discuss publicly. All in all, I'm very happy about the way that everything is coming together and Tony couldn't be happier that he doesn't have bridezilla on his hands. I guess the fact that I'm going for very simple - which means that I'm pretty simple to please when it comes to the small details. Our biggest task left is deciding on where to go for our honeymoon. We had originally wanted to go to Jamaica, but then dad offered to let us use his timeshare and the resort in Jamaica was not available during our time frame. But I have found some pretty good deals in Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas - if we leave the Saturday after our wedding...which I'm ok with, but Tony wants to go right away. To save $1,000, I really don't understand what the issue is. Guess I'm just frugal with my money.

Speaking of wedding....I've attempted in the last few weeks/months to drop a few lbs. I have a gym membership that I use maybe once a week on Saturday. That is not cutting it. Tony and I have a been bike riding, weather permitting about 5.5 miles per day and that doesn't seem to be helping - I've dropped a little, but not enough. I've been reading a lot of posts about this 30 day shred and have decided to give it a try. I ordered the DVD to try through my blockbuster subscription and it should be here Monday. As much as I am looking forward to this, I'm really not. I hate excising. I don't like to sweat and I don't like feeling like I'm going to vomit after I'm done. I'd try running, but that is just so ineffective for me. I come home with two black eyes and chest pain....and I'm not talking pains in my chest from my heart or lungs. My extremities bounce to much for me to run.

In another effort to ditch some of my weight, I've quit drinking soda as much as possible. I wish quitting smoking was as easy for me as that was.

Ok, so I know that CROCs are not the most stylish shoes to wear, but when you are on the go and looking for comfy shoes, these take the cake.

But now they have flip-flops, mary janes, heels, and my favorites - Ballet slippers.
