Nothing like coming into work with a passive aggressive co-worker. Oh well. The day is still young.

Last night, I was exhausted. I did not get very much done. We got a new dryer though! We walked around Home Depot and found a stellar deal which had a 10% discount off of it – with free delivery, install, and haul away. How could we go wrong? It’s super nice and exciting – we should have it in several days (they had to order it) – but it’s one more thing crossed off the list and this bad boy should last us a while!

So I have been horrible at tracking my dinner (meaning, not taking pictures or really doing anything at all). Last night’s dinner consisted of Digornio pizza spread with some homemade pesto! I dipped my pizza in Saracha, of course! I had three pieces and I was set for the rest of the night. I did not exercise last night, after looking at dryers and then getting settled back in at home (i.e., straigtening up). We heated up a pizza and then I crashed on the couch. I NEED to start exercise again. I am going to do a DVD tonight, most likely 30 Day Shred or Power Yoga. Once the weekend hits (it’s my bday!), I am going to start hitting the gym again too. My bathing suits are hanging out at UPS. Need to get those too. Today has started off busy but I really need to work out, I am starting to feel “doughy” and “jiggly”. Not a good feeling. I think I may have gotten close to my water goal but didn’t quite make it. Trying again today. Drinking two Nalgenes today! And….go!

Breakfast today cosisted of a palmful of nuts and my standard coconut coffee. But then I got hungry (obviously) like an hour later. So I had my applesauce – which filled me up! I just finished my coffee so I am on my way to rinse my mug and filled it up with some hot Organic Green Tea. I used to drink a lot of tea, and I have been slacking lately. It was so good for me and I would drink that instead of snacking mindlessly. Plus the antioxidants in the tea are great for me. I need to drink more water though – that just needs to be done.

Just getting out of college and starting my first “real” job. I love finding tips for being frugal and saving every little bit I can!
Money Saving Tip: check money saving blogs and request for all the free samples you want! You’d never guess it, but it saves a ton. You get coupons usually with the free samples, and the samples last for about a week or more depending on the size. Also, they are great travel size items that you don’t have to pay for! Great for flying or that road trip you need to take.

Everything must have a beginning, so this the first installment of my blog. I am on the road to my wedding in 6 months – and I want to look great! Not only do I want to look good for my wedding, but I also want to look good for myself and start healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

I already ordered three new bathing suits from Victoria Secret…so now I kinda sorta hafta get into good shape – or it’s just wasted money. So I am trying a new strategy. Strategy #1: Buy a piece of clothing that you will use as a goal to look good in. Nothing is more motivating that a skimpy bathing suit! Hey, maybe if all goes well – I’ll look like one of those models. 😉

Another thing, this week is going to be a challege – I am working 4 ten-hour shifts at work as I am flying out of state to go wedding dress shopping this weekend! My job needs me and since no one can do my job – I feel like I need to be here full-time this week or I will be in a deep rut. So how am I going to be able to fit work-out into my 7am to 5pm work week? After a bout of sickness the past week, I need to get back on that exercise horse. I think my plan of attack will be exercise DVDs – Jillian Micheals is my friend, right?

So, for weeks where time is short (much like this one!), I will be using a DVD to get something done in the comfort of my own home on my own time (without going into the snow storm that we got last night, removing drive time and “set up” time at the gym to give me more time at home and time to visit with my fiancee!). I also have some workouts that I pieced together from Health Magazine. It’s fairly easy to squeeze something in, just sometimes I am too tired to get it all in. I try to exercise even a little everyday – obviously, some days, like when you are sick – motivation is hard to come by. I can’t wait until the warm weather is back so my fiancee and I can talk walks or ride bikes on days it’s hard to make it to the gym.

Hold up! I am going wedding dress shopping this weekend (another reason to get on that exercise horse). And I think I have the perfect dress in mind, I love the Vneck dresses. I think that they are so pretty, and flattering. When I first got engaged – I had no idea what I would want in a dress. But I just love these. So this weekend, the hunt in on. And if I want something that fits nice, I will get my butt in gear and tone up! No bodice’s for me, or fabric that squeeze me tiny. I want to feel healthy and strong. Time to put my “Three E’s” into action: 1) Eat healthy, 2) Exercise strong, and 3) Enjoy life!

Breakfast: Overnight Oats with Vanilla Soy Milk and a big scoop of homemade Peanutella. And of course, no day can start without: coffee with soy milk and coconut coffee cream (yum!) 😀

Morning Snack: A banana the size of Florida.

Lunch: A PB & J with two salt water taffy’s.

Back to work. Time to get some stuff done in my long week! 😉
