Trottin' into November

Sunday, November 04, 2012

November is the start of the holiday season... DUN DUN DUN!!!! Last year I actually managed to maintain my weight during the holiday season so maybe this year I'll lose some :]

So here's the plan...

1. PLAN MEALS!! - Use WW point system and portion control!!
2. ZUMBA as often as I can go to the classes
3. Ripped in 30
4. Lose 0.5-1 lb a week

Easy enough.... so now I just need to stick with it!!


- I'll be reapplying for the Nursing program on Monday so hopefully I get reaccepted and then I'll finish my last semester (again) and finally graduate in April!! Cross your fingers for me!!
- We finally found a venue!! That was the biggest stressor with all the wedding planning but then I realized how much more we actually still have to do. I don't even have my dress yet lol I wanted to lose a little more weight before actually trying on dresses so I guess I should get on it cause I'll probably be going dress shopping in January.
- In August, my friend had to get rid of her rott/lab dog because she was moving to Wyoming and couldn't find a place to rent that would allow big dogs. Well, the fiance and I were discussing about getting a new dog anyone so we took her in. Last Friday, I had my cousins visiting with my two 3 year old nieces so I put both my dogs outside while we were unloading the SUV. The next thing I know I hear screaming so I ran outside to where I heard screaming and saw my dog Tola (the rott/lab) attacking another dog. I have never been so scared in my life and I had no idea what to do. The other dog was going on a walk with the owner and his daughter. I have no idea why Tola went after the dog because shes never acted aggressive towards our Westie and she used to live with 2 other dogs before. So, I have been very stressed because I had to pay for the vet bill which I ended up having to borrow money from my parents. The owner called the cops on me so I had to go to court on Friday and luckily only had to pay court costs. Now, I'm trying to find someone to take her which I haven't had luck with at all (which I don't blame people for not wanting her). The whole situation just totally sucks.
- So with that above sitatuion, I have now become stressed over finances. And with Abbie's birthday and Christmas coming up too, it doesn't help with the stress :[ I'll figure things out... I always do :]


Thanksgiving - 18 days!!
Abs Birthday & Christmas - 7 weeks... OMG!!
My 26th Bday - 14 weeks
My Wedding - 342 days...Less than a year away now :]

    Congrats on finding a venue, and great goals for November. I'm so sorry about the dog attack that is so sad :(. My friend just had to put her dog down because he was too aggressive towards people they were afraid what would happen. I hope you can find her a home where she can be happy. Thats a tough situation to be in though, hang in there hopefully something will work out.

    Love your goals! You can definitely achieve them! I'm sorry to hear about the dog situation. Sending some good vibes you can find a permanent home for her soon.

    You have very set and do-able goals!! you can do this!!!

    Sorry about the dog issue, I can only image the stress. I am right there with you on the whole Christmas and a dozen or so birthdays coming and still trying to play catch up on some bills. So my stressers are of course $$$ and trying to work at getting this weight off!! I feel like I am working out so hard but hardly see the results! Kinda sad but I am about to do a countdown to tax return and then I might get some breathing room.

    Congrats on less than yr til your BIG day!!!!
