Sh*ts getting real. Planning has to be done. Why are there so many little details to take care of? I’m trying to not let it stress me out but money is a big deal.
My mother took my “there is no budget” wedding and slashed her portion to $10k... which is VERY different than “no budget.” I tried to have a budget talk SEVERAL times with her, fearing this would happen... and it did. SO now we’re back tracking and trying to save money wherever the heck we can.
Since my job doesn’t start until August 14th – I have been scrambling to try to find a way to work this summer. I finally found something with a company that walks dogs and takes care of cats. Some of them are daily clients, but most are dogs that are being walked while their owners are gone on vacation – so summer is a big time for them. I could also help out around the holidays too since I get a lot of days off then as well. I’m just excited it’s a job that pays $10/30 minute walks and I get to walk = exercise + money = success!
I have started back up on myfitnesspal too – feel free to add me on there as: saradrenk – if you’re an instagrammer I use the same name on there... and on Pinterest. What the heck am I supposed to do after I get married? Changing my name is just foreign to me at this point. The boy and I have chatted... I think I’m going to hyphenate and the kids will have his last name. But still super werid.
I’m on a two day streak of eating good and drinking lots of water and trying to stay moving. Today was a bit of a slow day. I had my first bridezilla moment when I saw the invitation proofs and freaked the eff out since they were kiiiiiind of hideous with the color scheme the designer started. I said peacock, which she took for grape, lime, and navy... it looked BAD. So now I’m waiting for the second set of proofs and holding my breath. TJ just wants to cancel the order and not work with them, but I don’t know... the set they sent us was so preeeeetty. I’ll post pics once I decide they’re not hideous anymore.
SO 114 days. I need a dress fitting in about six weeks. So after that I’m not supposed to lose too much weight. The way I carry my weight though I don’t think it will matter. I’m not going to drop 20 pounds or anything. I’m just trying to muscle up a bit and get rid of some puff/bloat. My arms got puffy :-( That’s the worst part of my weight gain. AND I have saddlebags now... my pants are not my friends. SO I’m getting my butt in gear. I officially weighed in at 207 three days ago... 8 above a # I’m comfortable with. And about 30 from where I’d LIKE to be. I was about 180 when I started dating TJ. I was super fit and healthy. My surgery derailed that... after the whole, one-arm-not-attached-to-my-bod
y-issue, working out fell out of my lifestyle.
SO I’m back. I have 114 days to get my butt in gear and my guns loaded with muscle.
