Remember when Garfield wished Mondays away?

Does anyone remember that episode? Heh. I hate Mondays. But if the 1st or the 15th falls on a Monday, I don't get paid. Bleh.

Anyways, I'm so glad that Good Gals Inc. posted about this . I'm actually on a mission to lose at least 5 lbs. and maintain that until the the wedding-- and then after as well. I've kinda plateau'd and need a little oomf in the working out department. Chris and I have agreed on being "rewarded" if we hit our goals by the time our wedding rolls around. Chris wants to get down 20lbs. before the wedding, but how unfair is it that guys burn fat so much faster?? Ugh. He's also a former soccer player so he's used to doing lots of cardio. We've yet to finalize his prize, but mine is a brand-new wardrobe! I'm all for it! haha. Oh & we're trying to figure this out-- how do we figure out who wins? Do both of us win if we both hit our goals by September? How would you do it?

I've been doing pretty well so far-- I used to do 3 miles of stairs 4-5 times a week, but have gotten so bored with that so I've taken up running 3 miles 4-5 times a week. Let me tell you, a little embarassing to admit, but I haven't run in probably 6 or 7 years. hah. I've always been so concious of what I look like when I run-- probably due to my sister's comments of "You run like a girl!" heehee. I probably do... and also, I'm pretty much boobs and butt and developed earlier than my grade school friends so gym class was always a little awkward for me too in that department if ya catch my drift-- scarred and traumatized, seriously. I'm getting over that for the sake of my wedding dress. hah. Plus, after almost 3 months, I'm seeing my Baby in 11 days! Chris and I are starting pre-marital couseling on January 9th so he'll be in town for the weekend hence me trying to lose whatever weight I've gained since I've last seen him. Tonight was a pretty good workout, but I was huffin and puffin about 7 laps into it. Hah. I tend to have imaginary competitions with people on the track with me. If someone's speed walking next to me when I'm walking, I try to out walk them and secretly cheer myself on. Is that weird? haha.

Good news-- I didn't mention this before (didn't want to damper the Holiday spirit), but about 2 weeks ago, I got into a car wreck-- long story short, the car was in pretty bad shape (I walked away with a minor bite to the side of my tongue, but no other damages-- not even soreness or whiplash!), it's currently in the shop, insurance company took forever to get back to me, I'm about 1 month away from paying it off so I'm stressing since we're trying to save for the wedding, and I miss my little girl car, but they FINALLY called back today and will be fixing my car completely! God has been good even though I haven't & have doubted how this would work out.
