Baptism and Pizza

by Destini on March 31, 2011

Well the time came…..I was baptized. It was very simple and painless…..minus the missing hair (it really wasn’t that much). I have mentioned before that my fiancé is Serbian Orthodox and we are getting married in a Serbian Orthodox church. So having never been baptized….I needed to be before the wedding.

I wanted to have it out of the way before the social. Because I know after it….things will get intense. It was short and sweet. Afterwards, I was rewarded with pizza and wine….honestly I’ll get baptized every weekend if I get that, though it may not very good for me.

Sorry about the quality of the photos. They are from a cell phone.

Not sure what my facial expression here is
And the water…notice my fiance laughing in the back

For a walk we go
Some oil
See no bathing suit and kiddy pool!!!

Six months from today…where I am at!

by Destini on March 25, 2011

Six months from today I will be waking up probably tired, nervous and excited. I will be almost ready to walk down an aisle that will most likely feel like it never ends towards the most amazing person! Yep if you haven’t guessed it is the six month mark to my WEDDING!!!

So where am I at? Emotionally I am not too nervous. I feel comfortable with how much I have done thus far. I know we have a bunch more to go….but I am content with that.

I used a similar list like Heather @ Hangry Pants. She is getting married a day before me! So check her out!

To Do:

I know it look’s like I have a lot left. But most I already know what I want or where I am getting it. SO it isn’t too bad. How do you feel I am doing?

Did my leg workout today! Most of these are all 3 sets of 12 reps

  • Squats on smith machine
  • Squats, jump, squat and kick….some ridiculous exercise Kim made up JK (Love you Kim)
  • Push backs on a leg press….I know right?
  • Hamstring curl on machine
  • Calf raises on machine(this will be to failure)

At the end of that my legs are pretty mush mush, for cardio I will only walk on a incline of 6 with a speed of 3.5 on the treadmill.

What better way to finish my workout then with a GREEN MONSTER! I have talked about these before. Today’s was like last time, minus the blueberries. These things are like a meal. SO good!


Also I am super excited and proud to say that my trainer Kim placed 2nd in the short bikini category at MABBA‘s this year!!!!!!!


Centrepiece Project……….Mock-up #1

March 22, 2011

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 […]

Diet……..The Break-Up

March 18, 2011

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 […]

Interview with Kim from Kimmy Conduct

March 16, 2011

 I have been getting a lot questions about who my trainer is and what she is all about. So instead of me telling people about her over and over again(though I don’t mind as she’s totally awesome), I sat down and asked her some questions that I felt would be helpful to people interested in starting a healthy lifestyle. What most attracted me to training with Kim was that she has been down my journey too. She hasn’t always been where she is now with her health and knows how it feels to struggle with weight. So that being said, lets get to the interview!! 1.What is your personal experience with […]

David’s Tea…This isn’t your grandmas tea shop

March 10, 2011

I am currently getting over the stomach flu, so I am writing this blog from my bed of sickness. Feeling pretty under the weather, I have been drinking lots of fluids. One I am currently enjoying is some tea I purchased this past weekend. A co-worker of mine recently introduced me to this new shop we have in our local mall called David’s Tea. It’s a specialty tea store that specializes in loose leaf tea. They offer a HUGE range of teas from tea with coffee beans in it, to tea that can help with colds and sore throats. Tea from a healthy standpoint has many benefits; studies have shown […]
