Catching up

I'm so glad the holidays are over!!! Mainly because of all the food that's around that I, for some reason, was not able to refrain from this year! However, I am sad that my two weeks of vacation went by so quickly... I spent the majority of it at my parents house in central Wisconsin. I used the local gym 6 of the 9 days I was there. The other days I got my exercise by shoveling my parents large driveway after each snowfall, which there was a ton of! It was a very white Christmas.
I have a few sweet treats left in the freezer, but while they are in there, I don't really think about them. I'm sure I should get them out soon though to get them finished off. I send a few a day to work with my fiance and he'll get them gone in no time.

The Saturday before Christmas my fiances parents call and tell us that they accidentally let my cat outside and now they can't find him. He does like to run outside if you have the door open too long and they just weren't aware of it. They couldn't find him the whole four days after that that we were gone. We came back on Christmas Day, jumped out of the car and within 10 minutes of being home, we found him, hiding under our deck. It took a while to coax him out because he was scared and unsure, but in the end, he was fine. No frost bite or fleas or anything... Lucky little punk. Pretty much just a great Christmas present. The fiances parents were relieved too... they said they were gonna get me a kitten for Christmas if we couldn't find him, haha.

Now that the holidays are over, I can finally get back into my wedding planning. Next weekend my girls and I are going to look for bridesmaids dresses at David's Bridal. We have one picked out that I think will look good on all of the girls. However, if they like different dresses, I may just let them get what they are comfortable in. I'm not too picky. After that I just have to get my cake figured out, as well as invitations... which are giving me a headache. I just need to decide on one and go with it!

On the weight front, things are pretty much the same. With the holidays and having so much time off, I'm lucky I didn't gain a ton of weight. Last night when I weighed in I was at 187, but I also didn't work out Monday (worked all day - 6:30am to 8pm, lots of overtime!) and its my tom, so I'm sure that isn't helping either. I'm a creature of habit, so with my schedule all thrown off, I am glad I didn't go too far off the deep end. Need to get back down to the low 180's and I'll feel OK again.

I hope everyone had a great holiday season!

    Glad you found your cat!! Wedding planning always sounds like fun, but I'm sure that's only because I don't have to actually do it! I'm just looking at pretty pictures on pinterest and moving on. :p Good luck with the dress shopping and the invitations!

    SO glad you found your cat! And I am in the same boat with the holiday food, for me it's not just the holiday itself that can create a problem since well meaning relatives send us home with a ton of leftovers! At least you maintained pretty well - that is impressive! You can always pick back up with the weight loss efforts

    So glad you found your fur baby. Most people don't realize that cats usually stay very close to home and are usually very afraid if they don't normally go outside. It takes patience and persistence to bring them home.

    Kind like losing weight!

    Patience and persistence!

    You've got this!

    Have a great day and keep ...
