Well, got one chalkboard sign done for the wedding. Now there’s one more big one for the wedding party and then a few small ones just for little things around the place.

Yoga got cancelled tonight. My future s-i-l had a fever about as high as the room temp. That is no bueno for your wedding week.

Not going to yoga ended up being alright for me. Got errands run, figured on which days to do what, designed the 2nd chalkboard, and made it to the gym. The breakdown-

3 mile run
Upright row/ Romanian deadlift/ clean and press/ squat jump- 3/12( 25, 35, 45#)
Lat pulldown- 3/12( 60#)
lateral raises- 3/15( 5#db)
Slight bent over db fly- 3/15( 5#)

Rest day today. My right hip flexor is acting up a bit. Blargh. I don’t think I’ll be able to meet up with trainer this week either. Sad. Got 3 miles to run tomorrow and then my soon-to-be sister-in-law is going to join me at hot yoga. It’ll be a nice hour to clear my head and relax because…


IM SO STRESSED OUT FOR THE WEDDING. Sorry to shout but I’m going to go crazy this week with all I have to do. Completely redesigned the cake tonight. I’m drawing out chalkboard signs. Making dips for the reception. Grooms cake! So to just take my mind off one thing, I’m totally breaking the eating clean code and I bought frozen meals. Not that I have been eating the healthiest to begin with lately but still. I just need that part of my day to be on autopilot so I don’t have to think about it. Already got tomorrow all planned out. It actually might help me get back on track though. That’d be a nice side-effect of this.

Sooooo I went back into work after Easter dinner to get ahead for the week. One of my managers was there who also does power lifting competitions. I maaaay have inquired how one gets into that type of thing. He’s going to look up stats for me to see where I currently stand. He’s talked to me about doing them before and now I can’t quite shake the idea of it out of my head…

Happy Easter all! Was able to be at work for a little over an hour to just fill the cake case and go! Happy to have been able to run my full scheduled 9 before Easter dinner. Now bring on some chocolate-covered marshmallow bunnies!

Well work completely sidetracked my running today. I know it’s completely necessary to start doing my runs in the morning now. Gotta stay on schedule. But, oh, those first few( or all) mornings are going to be tough. I like my sleepy time. Today was supposed to be 5 miles and tomorrow its 9. I could go back and forth at the river 3 times to hit it or I might just go run down the street. That way, if I go 4.5 one way, I’m going to have to finish the 9 to get back home. Or just be stranded.

Wedding cake was simple two-tier with clear glitter and rhinestone ribbon. They ordered this last Saturday after they decided to get married in 10 days. 10 days people! Crazy young kids

The sailboat is for a store display. It is made of styrofoam( so it can last longer ) though it’d be easy to do out of real cake too. Everyone at work kept quoting their favorite ship references. Lots of ‘I’m on a boat’ was being sung

Quick Tip of the Day.

When you buy produce, before you cut it/use it/put it away, soak it in a sink full of water and 1 cup of vinegar for 10 minutes.  It makes everything so clean! Once the 10 minutes are up, rinse everything and prepare as usual!  It leaves no vinegary taste, and you should see all the dirt that falls to the bottom of the sink.  It’s really quite amazing.

Rest day today! Body= tired and sore. But on the bright side- this is going to be my hairstyle for the wedding next week!( minus the frosting that’s speckled in it after the workday)

Stayed late at work tonight. Day 1 of 8 in a row before my 3-day weekend for my brother’s wedding. Then it’s an entire month straight for graduation season. Ugh. Today’s breakdown-

6 mile run- broke it up and did three outside around the river and three on the treadmill

Seated leg press- 5/12( 150#)
Walking lunges- 3 sets down the gym and back( 20# kettlebells)
Glute machine- 3/12( 65#)

Went out for a little dinner with the guy again. We’ve texted a bit the past few days too. He’s a perfectly nice guy but I don’t think we’re a good fit. I think he needs a nice, sweet girl and I know that’s not me. Don’t get me wrong, I am nice. And I am sweet. But I don’t think he’d be able to handle all of the sides of me. Simply put, I need someone who can challenge me and I can challenge right back. That’s how you grow as a person and as a couple.

My friend thinks I should give him a third date. I have been single for quite some time so it has been nice talking with someone, but I don’t want to lead him on with a third date if I already know I’m not into him. I am tired of being just by myself but I’m not going to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone.

I need to go out more.


Ps- my hair looked super duper cute tonight. Tried this thing where you wear a headband then you loop your hair through the back of the band so it gets all twisted up. Looks adorable and I’m so proud of myself for doing something with my hair that’s not a ponytail or just straightening it. Sad to say the highlight of my night was my hair and not my date.
