Wedding Plans

Well my wedding plan might be changing. B and I had a 9 hour drive yesterday to discuss lots of things, and the wedding was one of them.

Here is the most recent list of possibilities.

1) Traditional-ish Wedding – Outdoor ceremony at a group campsite near here. Tried to reserve a nearby state park and didn’t get it. Most of our invite list will probably make this type of wedding. Because we incur the cost of lodging and meals for a whole weekend this is no longer our favorite option.
2) Courthouse wedding - Reception party in Rochester (possibly in our hometowns as well) and hopefully a honeymoon in Europe. Receptions in a couple of cities will mean we get to celebrate our wedding with most of our family and friends, but we don’t have to incur the expense and stress of the traditional wedding.
3) Grand Canyon Wedding – Everyone flies in to Vegas, and we shuttle to the wedding location the day of. Less cost for us AND our guests, flights and hotels in Vegas are notoriously cheap. Might want to take into consideration families with kids, find an off the strip hotel with some kid friendly activites. Big bonus, who doesn’t want to go to Vegas at some point in their lives and we aint getting married by Elvis!
4) Cruise Ship Wedding – We book a cruise and pay extra for a wedding package. Invite the standard wedding list but realize most people will not be able to afford to be with us. Reception party here, and maybe in our hometowns. Possible depart from locations… Florida or South America.
5) All Inclusive Resort Wedding – We fly there and make use of a wedding package. Possible locations (somewhere warm)… Puerta Vallarta? As with the cruise ship, most people would not be able to afford to come, no grandparents and possibly not a lot of siblings. A handful of people will probably make it and we should have a couple of friends there to be our witnesses.


I quit working out last week. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I haven't lost a stinking pound. It doesn't seem to matter how much I work out or how much I'm losing inches I want the number to go down...

So, this week, I'm cutting most of my carbs out. I'm going to start working out again. Maybe add more weight lifting... I'm not sure. But, I tell you what I'm so frustrated at being fat that as I finished off the last of a bag of Diritos on Saturday morning that I actually felt good... LOL. Then I followed it up with two pieces of cheesecake. I didn't gain a pound either. I guess that's good...

I just want something to change. I want to fit into that beautiful new suit that's hanging in my closet waiting to be worn...

Was it wrong of me to post about cake on a website devoted to staying fit and healthy?
Probably. But since we are talking about cake...
I want White wedding cake, B doesnt like most cakes, but likes Carrot Cake ok. A friend of ours had cupcakes at her wedding, 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 white, we could do the same thing with white and carrot... OR we can just have a small white wedding cake, and then a sheet cake of carrot.. or vice versa I suppose.
What do you think?

How is it possible...

That I've been working out for almost 2 months and haven't lost a lb?


Riddle me this...

I know you're excited about the cake.

And yes, I know you're thinking about taking a HUGE bite of the cake.

Before you dive in, why not EARN the cake? (insert good workout here)

And then when it's cake time, you might not even want a piece... Especially if your 6 year old already committed her face to it!
