This past weekend I started one of my many projects before my Wedding Day!! This is the stuff that I really enjoy about wedding planning. But I feel I need some assistance and who better to ask then my fellow bloggers/followers.
Here is the project, Create centerpieces for round tables that hold 6-8 people. I will have a white table cloth with a damask runner seen here, black napkins and black chair linen. People always ask me what color’s I am using in my wedding and the answer is difficult as I am not really using a color so much as a pattern, which is the damask pattern seen on the runner. My flowers however for my wedding will be red, the ties and pocket square’s on the groomsmen are also deep red.
I can’t decide if I want a short or tall centerpiece. All I know is I want it to have flowers. I think they will be silk as they will look exactly how I want them to.
Here is my centerpiece mock-up #1
- Short square vase, black ribbon wrapped around it with red silk flowers.
I had a lazy weekend, and didn’t workout. But I will be getting my fitness on tomorrow.
This past Friday I made some Thai Curried Butternut Squash soup that I seen on Jeanette’s Healthy Living Blog.
I also fudged and didn’t toss them and they burnt a little bit……whoops
It was a little thick but that could be due to how large my squash was and sweet potato. To resolve this I added some more broth.
It was delish.
Has anyone tried these? I love Larabar’s and was picking some up when I saw these Vega Whole Food Vibrancy Bars. I got the two kinds they had at the store Chocolate Decadence and Green Synergy. Both were sooo good. I loved the Chocolate Decadence more, but I have a sweet tooth. Will be picking up some more of these tonight.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I have been debating this for a few weeks now, I am at my ideal weight and have surpassed my goal. I am healthy, happy and enjoying my new lifestyle. When I started my weight loss, my goal was 130lbs. I am now 120lbs. So then why am I still dieting? Let’s be serious? Enough is enough. Dieting is a horrible word, no one likes it and I hate it.
I am ending it, and trust me dieting…..I don’t want to be friends, in fact I don’t ever want to see you again.
|It’s official I have removed you as a Facebook friend LOL
Now that is done and the awkwardness is fading. Let’s discus what my new goals are:
- Continue eating healthy, but increase my calorie intake- I know my body now, I know what amount I can and can’t eat
- Keep working out and getting in top shape – still need to look fab for my wedding
- Be happy and not feel deprived – self explanatory for anyone who has been on a diet
I am really happy about this decision. I will continue to eat healthy and maintain what I have accomplished. I honestly feel so much better! With the wedding coming in just a little more then 6months and my wedding social just around the corner, this is one less stress and I wont miss it.
Last night’s workout was my back. Each exercise is 3 set’s of 12 reps.
- Pull up on assisted machine
- Row on machine
- DB Swiss ball raise
I then followed up with 20min on the stepper at resistance 6.
Now for the best part, my post-workout drink….The Green Monster as seen on Oh She Glows. She has many different versions. Mine was close to the the Classic Green Monster with a small handful of blueberries added.
The major modification I did was instead of chocolate nut butter or wheatgrass I used a scoop of my ISOFLEX Peanut Butter Chocolate protein powder. The result. AMAZING! I even had my fiance try some and he loved it. So check out Angela at Oh She Glows she rocks!
