Yay! I am so happy to finally have my fob for the gym! I just go in, beep my badge and off I go to workout! I am offcially a gym rat!! I survived! My friend and I have been to the gym EVERYDAY this week at 530AM, working it pretty hard! I’ve lost a couple pounds already which is a nice feeling. 18 more to go! LOL. Just got to keep going at it as much as I can. Get leaner, get stronger and hopefully in a couple of months, it will be noticeable. It’s not easy folks! But I love going to gym early in the morning. It’s out of the way, I don’t have to worry about fitting in my workout schedule when I get home from work. Also, working out has been great with my sleep. I have been sleeping so well over the week. If I want to pass out at 8 or 9, it’s very easy because I am tired!! I can get in some extra cardio too because my fiance and I found out about open gym nights in our community centre so we drop by about twice a week and play some basketball!! Yesterday, I went and WOW … boy am I feeling it this morning. It’s a different kind of sore, I guess due to the nature of the movements. The gym workouts are so controlled and so isolated (because every day is a different muscle group I work on) that playing basketball or any other sports works everything so the whole body is sore!! I am really feeling it in my legs and my arms because of the running and shooting. It definitely affected my day at the gym because I could not do my shoulder muscles today! So instead, I did an hour of cardio on the elliptical machine. At least I sweated it out!! Next week, my friend and I vowed to step it up a notch. We need to burn more fat. I say we do lower weight but more reps and no rests in between sets so that we really get our hearts pumping and start sweating!!

I am a little nervous/excited about tonight because I finally got in contact with the church!! We are meeting with the priest tonight and I hope it all goes well. If things don’t though, we actually are considering having a courtyard wedding at our venue since it will be lower costs, we can plan things out a lot more and save more time. The only problem I think we may have with that is that I think my father really wants us to get married in a church. IF NEED BE, we will have a chat with my parents about it and see what we can do. I know there’s going to be a lot of hoops to jump through with the church so if it’s too much, we just might have to get married at our venue. Apparently, it is beautiful and a lot of people get married there in their courtyard because in the summer time, all the beautiful flowers are out and the fountains are on and it’s gorgeous. So … who knows? My mom already bought all our traditional ceremony items though … I hope if we do hire a marriage commissior that maybe … they can incorporate those traditions in there so that we at least get some of that in there because it’s important to me!

I am really getting stressed out though. This whole wedding planning is not easy and I’m in a whirlwind about all the things I want to do but can really afford to do and time is so important because I only have less than 6 months left!! ARGH!!!!

    Wow, good for you for going to the gym every morning! That’s awesome 🙂 I’m amazed you can do it so early. I think it’s because I’m more nocturnal, so it’s hard for me to wake up early, haha. It sounds nice to know that it’s out of the way and that you don’t have to schedule time for it later. I’m glad that’s working out for you!

    I hope the church stuff goes well! Doing it at the venue sounds like a nice back-up, so I hope your parents come around to the idea if the church doesn’t work out. Good luck with all of your wedding planning!
