a gust of health & nutrition
Oops.

For whatever reason, I forgot to set my alarm last night and didn’t wake up in time to go run. I did, however wake up about 8am from a nightmare….but somehow fell back asleep.

It is now 11:30 and while I could sleep even longer, I’ve got my butt outta bed. My running window has closed for today (it’s too hot now), I’m getting ready to do some yoga.

I feel I need to balance myself right now anyway. I feel cluttered and “dirty” from stress. Last night I was liking up balancing your chakras. Maybe I’ll start working on that too.

I may not have gone running but today I will focus on the inside first!

Hopefully my dad doesn’t wake me up and come pounding on my door for something while I’m in the middle of the zone though!

Happy Thursday!

Thinking

Laying in bed next to my sleeping fiancé. Sometimes the smallest things he does makes me so happy and loved, which are things I never thought that would.

For example, about 97% of the time when it’s raining or about to rain, he will call me from work. It doesn’t matter if he’s 10 minutes away, or 45 minutes away, he calls me and let’s me know that it’s raining and if I have to drive, to be careful. Even when he’s 45 minutes away, he would look up the weather of wherever I am, and call me to let me know rain is coming my way. (Even though he works for discount tire and he KNOWS he has put some of the best tires on my car)

Then there are times like right now, he’ll be half asleep, and when he turns to face me and puts his arm around me, or his leg on mine…even in his mid-sleep he adjusts himself to be in contact with me.

This morning I was still bummed about everything. Wedding stress and mom anniversary is coming up….but right now, I’m okay. I looked at some of my older entries and I realized a few things.

One, I really really miss juicing. Willy and I are so tight on money right now, we can’t afford to be picky. And I mean so tight that if my dad offers to buy me lunch, I’ll take it. Which brings me to my next point, I want to give up meat again. Maybe not as strict, but mostly. I would love to be vegan from now till the wedding…but like I said, if my dad wants to buy me lunch or have leftovers…we can’t afford to be that picky.

And then I realized that I’m done and I need to get into running and yoga again, AND I have a punching bag out there I need to use! We had been doing some renovations on the house lately and since men were always here or I always had a mess to clean, my workout schedule kind of got lost.

Tomorrow it starts. I will wake up early and do yoga and go run. It has to happen.

I want to be my own inspiration.

I mean…these are all correct….ahhh

I made the mistake and decided to look back at Facebook to where I was a year ago today. 

This time one year ago, my mom was in the hospital. Willy and I had recently got engaged….

2 weeks after this post my mother passed away. 

With officially less than 6 weeks to the wedding, and there’s something nearly every week till then…I am going to be under a lot of wedding stress then to top it off, emotional status of my moms death anniversary September 16 and her birthday September 18. 

Hope things will be okay.

Willy and I went to Austin for our bachelor and bachelorette parties this weekend :) the guys and girls weren’t together though!

You won’t believe all the drama and stress there was leading up to this weekend. 3 people dropped out last minute, after we booked the hotel room, so many plans kept changing, money issues everywhere, so much more!

I just knew once we got to Austin, it would all be over and the weekend was about seeing my best friend and letting loose. Boy! Did I need it!! I felt soo relaxed. 

Now we are back home and since I still felt too tired (and slightly hung over) last night I decided I would sleep in today and just do yoga instead of running. 

Sure enough, when I stepped out of my room, the first thing I noticed is dog poop in the kitchen…is it bad that I want to so yoga before I start dealing with dog poop, wedding stress, or people for that matter?

Sorry kitchen, you’re gonna have to smell a little longer till I’m awake and yoga has helped me start my day!

First dress fitting done!!

Definitely one way to motivate myself to stick to a diet now!!

And I need to work on my arms 😫 push ups everyday till the wedding!

Six more hours!

Then I get to see my wedding dress!!!

So I was planning to go run Monday, Tuesday, and today so I would be sure I looked extra hot in my first wedding dress fitting….

I went running today! Monday and Tuesday not so much :/ I was just really sleeeepy. Which I know is a HORRIBLE excuse, but it’s the truth.

Today I almost didn’t run either. The bed was just sooooo comfortable. BUT I told myself I would be happy if I went, and I should at least do two laps (which comes out to two miles), instead of my usual three.

Once I started I felt awesome. I didn’t make the three laps BUT I did 2.5 haha BETTER THAN BEING IN BED.

It is Sunday night…Wednesday NEEDS to get here NOW

The first time in 10 months, I will be seeing my wedding dress!!

I have my first fitting at 3pm Wednesday.

I must run every morning till then!!

I’m super excited. I hope I love it like I did when I first saw it!!

What I’ve leaned about being a guest from planning my own wedding.

I still have a little under two months for my wedding but I’m already realizing a few things…things I’ll be more aware of for any future weddings I’m invited to!

1) RSVP! RSVP! RSVP! The sooner, the better! And RSVP the way the invitation initially asks for whether it’s mailing back the response card, through a website or calling…do it as soon as possible and don’t slack off!

2) if you have received your wedding invitation though the mail…a call or text of some sort that you’ve received it in one piece…would be nice. It’s stressful enough getting concerned if an invite has arrived to its destination safely, than having to ask my guest is they’ve gotten it.

3) don’t complain as a guest. I’ve learned that the only people who appreciate the small things…are people who have planned or helped plan a major wedding.

4) compliments are wonderful! Especially when I have taken so much if my heart and soul to design my wedding so far. Like with my invitations, I designed them with 3 emotional break downs, 1 actual nightmare, and hours upon hours assembling 150 individual invitations.

Please take note! It’s not selfish…so much time and money is spent for this day it’s the least a guest can do.
