a gust of health & nutrition
In other news, I straightened my hair today for the first time in about two months. I’ve been avoiding adding extra damage to my hair before the wedding. 

I’m excited with how long my hair is getting. I’m in deep need of a hair cut though, buuuut that won’t be till another month or so.

She may have lost her 13 year battle to cancer one year ago today, but she will always be a winner and a hero in my eyes. Love you, miss you, and think about you every day, mom.

138.8 lbs

It’s true what they say. You lose weight before the wedding due to stress.

I’m not sure the last time I’ve seen the scale that low before (I’m usually between 143-139). I haven’t run at all the past week due to my horrible period nearly killing me, and now it’s been raining. So no other explanation for these last few pounds dropped then wedding stress.

Two weeks as of today. I’m ready for the drama to be over. I’m actually jealous of my friends who already are married and done with wedding poop.

Wedding planning isn’t fun anymore.

I want all this damn stress and dumb drama over with.

I’m not even looking forward to the fun we will have that day…I’m looking forward to the day AFTER when the drama and stress are done and we are just married.

Willy had been out of town for about 3 days and just returned yesterday. So today we decided to have a date night.

Since we poor and paying for a wedding…. We opted that I make dinner at home (a delicious tuna steak with sautéed mushrooms and broccoli, sorry forgot a picture), and then we be fancy and go out for dessert.

We finish dinner….

And now it’s pouring rain outside :(

All I want is some ice cream! Or cake! That I don’t have to make and clean up after myself!

Ladies,

When I get my period, the first day or two, I get the usual cramps along with this nauseated feeling that I need to throw up a little bit. But it goes away and the rest of the week it’s just a waiting game till my body is done.

THIS TIME, as of 25 hours now, my cramps are minimal or nonexistent, but I have been so nauseous and constantly felt the urge to throw up. The urge isn’t from the pain, cause I’m not really in pain…my stomach is in such a funk I’m scared to move too quick that I’ll puke — ALL DAY.

I don’t think I’ve had it this bad or last this long. I’m hoping/thinking it’s a
The combination of wedding stress/nerves, and the fact Willy is out of town till Thursday probably doesn’t help.

Good news is I won’t have my period at my wedding BUT looks like it’ll be here the day leave on our honeymoon.

Had anyone else ever had a nauseated feeling during their period? Or have any suggestions for the discomfort??

Case of the Mondays

So my dad is sick. Last night my throat started to bother me, and my whole body was starting to feel fatigued. I figured I’m getting sick.

This morning my alarm went off, and I didn’t feel that sick anymore but thought I should sleep a bit more in hopes of killing any actual sick germs I may have left. Then I would wake up later and get some yoga done.

An hour later I wake up with cramps and my period.

Horrible cramps.

Only getting out to bed to pee, let the dogs outside, and shower.

I almost wanted to cry. My legs and stomach were radiating pain. My body now feels weak but I don’t have food in my kitchen that takes less that 45 seconds to prep. And that’s all the time I wannabe outta this bed.

My cramps are better, but it’s now 1:30 and all I’ve eaten is a chewy bar. My skin feels so amazing against my mattress and bed sheets I can’t imagine making lunch away from this bed.

Being a lady is hard.

I never realize how much I like to drink until I tell myself I’m not drinking for a period of time.

But I really am not much if a drinker. I feel like I hardly drink…

Pretty much since my bachelorette party a few weeks ago, I decided I wasn’t going to drink till the wedding (3 weeks away!). Then we go to things like a bar, which our friend’s band is playing at…and all I want is a beer. Or to a friend’s house to hang out, and everyone has a beer. I let myself have a sip or two from Willy’s but nothing more.

Tonight the bar even had a really cheap price for beer.

So tempting. Especially with the wedding stress.

But I stayed strong. With the exception of two sips from Willy’s shiner, no alcohol for me tonight!

Can I stay in bed all day?

It’s one of those mornings. The bed is sooo damn comfortable, it’s holding me in.

But I promised Willy I would drop off some lunch to him at work.

We went to chilis last night, and before we even left, my stomach wasn’t happy with the food I ate. Now this morning, my stomach still isn’t happy. Ugh.

Sometimes I hate our amazing, wonderful mattress.
