100 Days Til RJ and Nicole’s Wedding: Things Just Got Serious

So as I’m sure you remember from the end of last year, there are approximately 1 bigillion weddings going on. And I successfully attempted to lose weight for all of them between August and December. However, we’ve been on a reprieve from weddings over the past few months, and unfortunately, some of those pounds came back.

If you take a look over to the right side of the screen (over there…over there) you’ll see that there are 100 days until Arge and Nik tie the knot (Memorial Day weekend, on Long Island…it’s a New York wedding people!), and I have every intention of losing 10 pounds in those 100 days. Since I practically forced them under penalty of death to go skydiving with me this summer, I figure I should at least look presentable when I do a reading/break out into an original song and dance number during their ceremony. It’s happening.

So it’s back to Zumba, Yoga, and possibly once-a-week Chipotle for this girl. Ugh. I might actually have to go grocery shopping for the first time in 2011. Losing weight is a pain in the (smaller) ass. Check back next week for my first weigh in results – and don’t hesitate to send some love along. Good luck to me!

I Have These Conversations With Myself on a Daily Basis

This is me every morning at 6:30 a.m. And then at 5 p.m. And then again at 6 p.m. after I’ve convinced myself that yeah, I can work out in my one bedroom apartment.

Wednesday’s are weird…

Weight Loss Week Eight: Success is Counted Sweetest

This Week’s Loss -0.9
Total Weight Loss: -8.9

So it hasn’t all been Chipotle burritos and Zumba classes (well, yes, yes it has) but we’ve finally reached wedding week and I’m .9 lbs under my goal weight. Yay!

This week (and the prior week) can mostly be attributed to seeing a mouse in my apartment and refusing to eat while inside said apartment or buy groceries. That mouse might have been a godsend.

So, the shoes are bought, the dress is shortened, and all is right with the world. My next goal is another 5 lbs for my cousin Lindsey’s wedding in December, but there definitely needs to be a break in between this journey and the next. This shiz is hard! Til next time peeps!!

P.S. If you can name the inspiration for the title of this post, I will love you forever. And no Google-ing!
