I started my training today for a 10K. I don't feel like I did super hot. I only had to run 1.5 miles and it was struggle. I don't know if it is b/c I waited until 9:30 to go and it was already hot and muggy or b/c I am that much out of shape. My next run is Wednesday and that one is only 1.5 miles but I am going to try and get up early to run before it gets hot.

I have decided to start training for a 10K. I don't have one coming up in the near future, but I figure I do better when I have a schedule to follow and I think a 5K schedule would be too easy for me. I am also doing the JumpStart Bootcamp and I seem to be sticking with that one pretty good. I just need to stay consistent.
In other news, I bought my dress yesterday!! I am so excited. It was at the 2nd store and I pretty much knew it was the dress, but I had the 1st one stuck in my head so I had to make sure.
Now, I need to find a hotel that will block rooms for us so I can print out the invitations. After that, we just need to book flights and we are pretty much good to go. I just need to figure out what Alex will wear and then find a dress for my soon to be step-daughter. I'm excited that it is all falling into place =)

I am starting to get really excited about my wedding so I thought that I would share the fun part of planning!! Dress shopping!!
Yesterday my mom and I went dress shopping! Normally I HATE HATE HATE trying clothes on (I normally buy them, and if they don't fit, I take them back) but I absolutely loved this experience. The first store we went to I found the exact type of dress that looks awesome on me. And, it give me a shape, which is something that I didn't know that I had. There were a few dresses that my mom had me try on that are most definitely not me (super girly) and the one that she ABSOLUTELY LOVED I HATED!! I found one dress there that I absolutely loved but I thought that I should look at other places.
So, after that we "crashed" the David's Bridal in our area. At first they were pretty irritated that we didn't have an appt, but all I wanted to do was look around. As luck would have it, one of their appts didn't show up so we took that one. And, as luck would have it again, it was with the one girl there that I love (I have been in numerous weddings lately). I found a dress there that I absolutely love. My mom had me try on stuff that wasn't me (again) but the one I loved there was simple with a little bit of "bling" as we are calling it.
Now, I'm torn. I have found 2 dresses that I love. This weekend my mom and I are going back out to try both those dresses again and I invited my soon to be mother-in-law to go. My mom wants me to go to other stores b/c I wasn't like I LOVE THIS DRESS! I loved both the dresses. I wish that I could wear them both!!! HAHAHAHA!! I'm not one to yell out I love this dress. I can see myself in both of them and I think that I look gorgeous in both. ARGHHHH, decisions decisions =)
Ok, sorry I was wordy today but I am/was so pumped by the experience!
In other news, I am one day 6 of working out. I am doing the Jumpstart Bootcamp and have made sure that I have done the videos and the cardio that goes along with it. I started it before my surgery but had to restart it since my surgery kicked my butt and I didn't realize that I would be out of commission for so long! Today I went on a walk for about an hour. At 10 this morning it was miserably hot but I did it and walked to the lake. I didn't want to go but I feel so much better that I did!!
I have heard that routines don't start until you have been doing it for 21 days. I have 2 more weeks to go to make this a routine (again)!!

We have decided to move our wedding up until this October!! Yikes!! Even thuogh we are going away, there is still a lot to do, and since I HATE planning parties and stuff like this, I am really procrastinating on this. I don't even have a dress yet! I do have an appointment scheduled for next Wednesday. I am very excited about that! The wedding dress is the only thing that I care about.
But, the only good thing is is that we are just having the ceremony in October. We are having a party next summer to celebrate. I wanted to nix the ceremony and reception, but Alex pretty much wants both. The ceremony is to be simple. Just us and beach and our family. That is it. We are waiting until the summer to have our reception b/c we would like to have an outdoor party. In Ohio, you can't do that in October. Well, maybe you could, but you can't predict how nice the weather is going to be!
In other news, I have been MIA b/c I had surgery on my elbow. With that, I haven't been able to exercise, which sucked b/c I started the bootcamp again and I really liked it. This week I have finally started feeling good so I started walking and doing core exercises but I can't do anything with my arms right now. So frustrating! Especially since I want to tone up my arms for my dress!! Oh well, I will figure out a way to do it!!
