Thursday's Thoughts

I have missed writing my Thursday's Thoughts post. I had forgotten about them until I wrote one last week and now I'd love to make this a weekly post again. I have posted more in the last week than I have the entire year. But it made me realize that I really do miss blogging and I'm excited to get back into it. 
  • It is now only 51 days until the wedding. That means if I check one thing off my to-do list for the next 51 days, I still won't have all of it done! Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration, but I feel that way at times!
  • I have my second dress fitting on Monday! I'm excited to be able to wear the dress at the right length and see what it will really look like on my wedding day. I have lost about 8 pounds since my first fitting, and am hoping I don't have to have any further alterations (although secretly I would be really happy if I did; my mom's wallet, not so much).
  • I have been doing this wedding arms video since April 10 (3 times a week with 2 lb weights). I didn't really start noticing a difference until about Week 3, but it has really helped to firm up my arms. I also feel like my posture is better because I make more of an effort now to hold my shoulders back. I highly recommend doing this video if you want to be more comfortable in sleeveless tops this summer. In addition to eating healthy, counting calories, and walking/hiking/biking, I added in the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 DVD. So far, I've done the workout 5 days in a row. Today is my day off because we are doing a big hike, but I will continue tomorrow. I have found it very challenging!
  • Chris and I did have a cheat day earlier this week. We tried a new restaurant called Kozmo Gastro Pub and it was so worth the extra calories! I had the hanger steak and fries and it was perfection. We also shared the fried mushrooms, but they were unlike any other fried mushrooms I've ever had. I don't even like mushrooms, but these were AMAZING! Of course I didn't get a picture because I was too busy stuffing my face :)

  •  Here was my guilty pleasure of the week!

  • We took Abbey and Molly (my parent's new beagle...she's 8 and rescued) on a hike a couple of days ago. It had finally stopped raining and we had to get out of the house! I took the cutest picture of the pups after the hike. They were both passed out in the backseat on the way home.
  • I sent our wedding invitations last week and I have started receiving RSVP's! I got way more excited than I thought I would when I saw them in the mailbox. It's all so exciting!
  • Last but not least, I changed my blog design! I figured my new desire to blog deserved a new look. It's a $15 template from Designer Blogs and it was really easy to install. Check it out!

THanks for sharing about Designer blogs. I need a new look.
51 days! EEK! So close.
That steak and fries photo made my stomach growl.
