Playing Catch Up

Happy Thursday everyone!

A lot has happened this past week and I haven’t had a chance to sit down and blog about it… so here we go!

Thanksgiving was GREAT! Seriously, I had a wonderful time hanging out with my man in the morning. I felt like such a grown-up because I woke up early and started cooking for the day! We were able to squeeze both of our families in (lunch with his side and dinner with my side) and my Cowboys won…. Which reminds me of one of my favorite parts of that day, my cousin McKenna was making fun of cheerleaders (which I was one in High School) so from that point on, I started cheering for the Cowboys. Like not just yelling at the TV (you know my normal behavior during a game) but actually “Ready, Okay!” cheering! It was fun and I believe it is why we came back from a horrible 1st half and ended up winning 31 to 24!!!

I finished Jamie Eason’s LiveFit program! I lost 14 pounds, dropped 2 pant sizes and built a lot of muscle… I am so proud of myself for sticking with it even though at times it was hard, I got sick, injured, distracted and much more. Since completing the 12 weeks, I decided to start it over. I am not where I want to be yet (I want more muscle and less fat) so for the month of December I am focusing on LiveFit. Then, January 1st Kelsey Byers is hosting a 12 week challenge and I plan on participating in… Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!

Lastly, I had my wedding dress fitted last night! When I bought the dress back in April, it was about 2 sizes to small and wouldn’t zip. The lady, Elizabeth, tried to talk me out of buying the dress. She didn’t want me to end up not losing the weight and having to buy another dress. She didn’t know how determined I am when I set my mind to something… and I was (and still am) very determined to be in the BEST shape of my life the day I marry Casey. Well, fast forward to last night… I walked into the shop 47 pounds and 4 pant sizes smaller then I was in April. Elizabeth was blown away! She kept hugging me and telling me how proud she was of me. It was the best feeling ever… until the seamstress came over and pinned up my dress. We have to take 3 inches out of the dress (about 1.5 inches on each side)… This is a dress that wouldn’t even zip when I bought it and now we are taking 3 inches of it out!!!! Wow!!! I am proud of myself…

Well that brings us to today… Usually this time of the year I am all about eating, finding the best hot chocolate in town (shout out Starbucks) and sitting on my couch with a hot meal in hand (gaining weight). Not this year, this year I am not going to let the cold get in my way! I will make it to the gym every single day I have planned out. I will eat clean no matter what the temp is outside and I will stay out of Starbucks! I am on a mission people and I only have 86 days until I marry Mr. Flowers… mark my words, I will be in the BEST shape of my life on March 1st, 2014… I will!!!

I hope you all have a happy and healthy day!
XOXO
