Steppin' up my game

Today marks the second day of my health wake up call. Maybe you can say it's because I have a wedding dress to fit into in (gulp) 44 days! Maybe it's just because we all have that "Oh now you don't!" number on the scale, and mine was too close for comfort. Maybe I just got tired of being lazy and grumpy. The past two days I've been making good use of my YMCA membership and making time for ME. Even if it means leaving when My Sailor gets home from work. It's worth it. After all, we both benefit from a healthy me! Yesterday, I ran/walked a 5 K on the treadmill in almost 41 minutes. Not too speedy, and my foot was KILLING me afterwards, but it gave me hope that I might actually survive the Zombie 5K without being too sore to move the next day. A little over a month until that hits my schedule square in the pants.

Wedding planning is really kicking into high gear! I'm starting to figure out just what I need to get done, what I would like to get done, and what I can get some help with. I wish I didn't work full time while trying to do this. Planning a wedding in 3 months IS a full time job, but it's crunch time and I'm getting down to it and it's almost done... I think... Just have to finish writing the ceremony, making decorations
(or outsourcing them to friends), planning some songs with the dj, finding a processional song that's both Jazz and romantic and can be sung by a soloist, framing our "guest book" art for friends to sign, making sure my fan gets done, figuring out what my girls are carrying... okay, so I still have A LOT on my to-do list, but that's what weekends are for I guess! It'll all work itself out.

Just a short note before I go to bed tonight. I'm so glad I've always lived by the accountability that, yes, I'm accountable to bosses, friends, and family, but when it really comes down to it, I am the one who has to look in the mirror and be proud of the woman I see.

I'm not always good at that, admittedly, but I'm getting better and better every day.

And after a 5k run/walk, 2 k swim, and an hour of Zumba in 2 days (coupled by good eating choices), I'm pretty proud of myself today.
