The picture that shocked me

The wedding this past weekend was wonderful. My brother in law and my sister in law (I know not technically but whatever) are now in Hawaii. I’m so jealous. The pictures they are posting on facebook make me want to DIE!! The wedding was fantastic. The bride looked AMAZING!! The food was outstanding. And everything went perfect. Well…almost perfect.

The flowers for the groomsmen were forgotten back the house, but I went back to get them. I don’t think I have ever seen my BIL so upset before. I didn’t even think. I just grabbed the keys from his hand and jumped back in limo. I wasn’t in the wedding, so I didn’t have to be there early. And the wedding went on when I got back. No big deal. My BIL is like a brother to me and it was the least I could do. I’ve watched him grow up, I’ve known him since he was 12 years old and I was happy to do it.

We ate, we drank, we danced. We had a great time.

Then I saw this picture.

Which is really sweet of him to say and I don’t think I look too horrible, but I was really shocked at how big I look. And I’m not happy about it at all. And even though I have said this a million times over the past few months, I am kicking myself in the ass and getting back on track. THIS picture has got to be in my mind on the mornings I don’t want to get up and hit the treadmill. Or the nights I want to eat that pizza or ice cream.

I actually haven’t worked out since Friday. I didn’t get a chance to use the fitness center at the hotel we stayed at for the wedding because we were just so busy. And I’ve been pretty doped up on Benadryl these past few mornings due to my Angioedema flaring up, but tomorrow morning I plan to get in a good workout. I need to. It’s been too long.

Here’s to losing the weight!!

We’re not in Kansas anymore

We had a tornado hit Connecticut on Wednesday. A tornado. In Connecticut. Pretty crazy, right? I was sitting around waiting for the flying monkey’s and the munchkins to show up, but no such luck. We thought it hit our street, but it turned out to be a “micro burst”, whatever that might be. It knocked down trees and closed my road. That was no joke. The tornado actually went through the backyard of some friends of ours. Luckily they are okay and only lost a few trees.

Something strange has come over me the past couple of nights. I’ve worked out after work. I know, right? I got home Thursday hit the treadmill for 30 minutes and weights after. Same with last night. I don’t even know who I am anymore. This morning I just did 70 minutes of cardio because my arms are sore from my weights.

My big weekend plans are to get curtains for the bedroom. Right now when the sun starts to come up it comes right into the room and wakes up. We start thinking its 10am and we’re late to work. It’s really 6am and we’re not late. And that is just not okay. When you get up before your alarm…not what either of us enjoy.

Do you get tornadoes where you live?

Your weekend plans?
