Busy, busy week ahead

Monday, October 22, 2012

I'm getting ready to move in with Jacob. I'll be spending this week going through all of mine and Ella's stuff, and packing. Which, I need to go through all of Ella's things anyways. Since winter's coming, I need to go through her clothes from last year, and go ahead and throw out what I know won't fit her when summer comes again so I can make room for her new winter clothes. Same with her shoes. And since Christmas will be here in a matter of months, I need to go through her toys and get rid of what she doesn't need/want/use so I can make room for the new things she'll get.
I'm sure I'll be getting plenty of exercise cleaning and packing. I'll crank up the tunes, and try to make it fun. Plus, I'll be carrying boxes and furniture down four flights of stairs. I guess I should spend the week warming up my muscles, lol. :)
I'm really excited, but I'm nervous. Even though we've been spending a lot of time at Jacob's lately, I'm worried about how Ella's going to act about officially moving in with him. We've lived with my dad for a little over 3 years now while I went to school, and even though he's her grandfather, and she knows that, he's been the only real father figure in her life, and I don't know how she'll be about not living here anymore, and not getting to see him as much anymore. Plus it's been three years since I was "on my own" but at least Jacob's good to us, and I know we'll be happy, even if it does take some time for Ella to adjust.
She does like the idea of having her own room though and not having to share with me anymore. (I'm also looking forward to not having to share a room with her, lol) We already have a bed for her, but the sheets are a little on the plain side. I'd like to be able to get princess or Tinkerbell stuff for the bed and decorate her room. Hopefully we can paint her room. I know Jacob wants to paint all the rooms, but technically it's his dad's house (he inherited it), but his dad has no use for the house, so maybe he won't mind.

My Cousin's Wedding

Sunday, October 21, 2012

My cousin got married last night (I caught the bouquet!) I put my bridesmaid dress on for the first time since early August (when I picked it up from the store) and it was too big! It stayed up, fortunately, but it was really loose in the waist, and my boobs didn't really fit in it anymore.
It was a beautiful wedding though, I wish her and her husband nothing but happiness.

    Congratulations to the happy couple. I attended my niece's wedding in Alabama during the week of Oct. 11. It was a lovely setting and nice to see relatives I hadn't seen in a while.

    Congratulations to the Bride & Groom!!!!
But you deserved a big emoticon too for the dress too loose.

Running My Butt Off (Literally)

Saturday, October 13, 2012

I've been running every night this week. I haven't weighed myself yet, but I know I'm making progress. We do intervals, a little over a mile. Each night I run a little further than the night before. Last night I ran almost a half mile before I stopped to walk. Pretty soon I'll be able to run the whole way. I don't even need to measure myself, my clothes are already looser.

Gym Tonight

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

As soon as Jacob gets home from work, we're changing (well, he's changing, I'm already dressed) and going to the gym together. I figure I'll use the eliptical (sp?) machine for at least 30 minutes, then do a half hour of strength training, crunches, etc. Jacob went to the recruiter today, and he has to lose an inch off his waist, so I know he'll be doing a lot of running. Hopefully he'll be back down to size when he signs his contract next week.

Now that I'm not sick anymore, I'm trying to get myself back in the habit of eating right, exercising, and tracking everything. My boyfriend even bought me a new pair of tennis shoes, and we're running together everynight. My other pair fell apart walking around Disney World, clearly they were made more for style rather than durability. My new ones are by Danskin (and they're really cute) and they're clearly made for exercising. We run a little over a mile together, which we usually end up walking part of it because I don't have the endurance built up yet, but I run a little further each night.
