I'm sorry that I've been such an awful blogger lately. I've rarely been updating and when I do it so short that you feel jipped. I understand that I'm sucking at life right now and today will not be much better... I just don't have the urge to write right now. I'm trying to take up more hours at both my jobs, the wedding is right around the corner and I'm starting to feel a little anxiety creeping over me.
  • I have a run this upcoming weekend (Pray I don't come in last)
  • The following weekend Coy and I are doing our engagement pictures (FINALLY) and my Aunt is throwing me a wedding shower!
  • We got Coy's suit. We decided to buy a suit over a renting a tux because I said so..
  • We also chose our night before the wedding dinner, which is replacing a rehearsal dinner, since there isn't a rehearsal. We chose diego's, it's a mexican restuarnt in MGM that we are absolutely in love with.
  • Also, today my mom and I began the final decisions for the reception.
  • 2months from Monday I'm going to marry the man of my dreams. It seems unreal.

Hopefully more posts next week. Sorry, guys!

Update: New Year's Resolutions

Update on My New Year's Resolutions:

  • Read a book every month- I did this last year and really enjoyed it.

So far I read, Cross Fire by James Patterson in January and Febuary's book was Drop Shot by Harlan Coben. Both were excellent books! I just started Bait by Karen Robard for March.

  • Run a half marathon-This is big for me because I've been running for years and have never been in a marathon. Just Fun Runs. lol

This is going to take a lot of work. I aim to do the Tulsa Run's half marathon in October. So, far I have done one 5k and am signed up to run one more on March 26. Then, I'll aim to do a 10k and move up from there... I'm just proud I've officially ran my 5k.

  • Learn to Stay in Shape- I worded it this way because I've lost 10lbs and still have another 10lbs to go, but this isn't about that... This is about learning healthy habits and making it a lifestyle not a short lived diet.

I'm awful at this. I so badly want to feel comfortable in my own skin again, but with working 2 jobs and one being a coffee shop with thousands of unhealthy creation to get my chubby little fingers around, it's hard... I gave up all sweets for Lent. It started yesterday and ends Palm Sunday. I know I'm giving them up more for myself than anything. Can you blame me? I grew up Baptist and Lent doesn't have as strong effect on my spiritual walk as it has on many others... Also, Saturday is 11 weeks from my wedding. If I got serious and worked really hard at losing a lb. per week I would be at my goal weight.

How are you doing with your New Year's Resolutions?
