Time To Ring In The New Year!

Wow! I can't believe that 2010 is already almost over! It seems like it went by faster than usual! It also means that the 6 month countdown till the wedding has arrived! In fact it is about 5 months and 18 days! YIKES! I am so far behind it feels like! We need to do the DJ, Flowers, Cake, Decorations, Favors, BM dresses, MOH Dresses, FG dresses, the boys clothes, get the rings, plan the honeymoon, figure out my hair, figure out who is going to do my hair and I am sure there is a lot more that I am forgetting! I am about to get stressed out! I need to make a list and a game plan and just hop to it! Luckily we have a meeting with a DJ next Saturday! DJ's are soooooo expensive! It also might be split between a DJ and my Dad's band if they want to play. I am just getting nervous that all of the good places will be booked for everything! On top of all that I am determined to get in shape! And I mean it! I am going to have abs, nice sculpted legs, nice arms, nice back and more! It is just so hard to get motivated to work out I am all gung-ho for it when I am at work then I get home and I am like well it can wait till tomorrow! On top of that I should start eating better but it is so hard because I am so picky and because some of my favorite food is so bad for you like cheese and fried potatoes! But I am going to try and do better.

I have decided that maybe if I write about my workouts and preparing for the wedding and what not more will get done! Of course then I have to make time to write! I have been making an online google document with workouts to do at home but of course I so far have spent more time doing that then actually doing them! I did however work out some last night! The problem is that I can't workout well after I eat because it makes me sick, that is why I can't eat anything before a soccer game, which is not healthy but otherwise I play like total crap. So after we ate last night I did some yoga and some ab and arm workouts. I did not do very much because my stomach had been upset all day but still I did some! I used to go to yoga once a week with me neighbor when I lived at home and it would help my neck and helped me keep exercising, but since I started working 5 days a week and now live farther away I have stopped going, plus I have no money :-(. Anyway I am determined to do it! I know I can! I know that I will cheat on what I eat sometimes but hey I am only human!

I made my chicken last night which is just marinated in soy sauce and garlic while it thaws then I cook it in my toaster oven and sprinkle it with pepper, garlic and onion flakes. Then I make green beans in a skillet with soy sauce and garlic. Not the healthiest meal because of all the salt and the fact that the green beans are cooked but hey better than fried potatoes I say! So I was not doing too bad then this morning I was going to have a banana instead of my usual strawberry poptarts, but of course that got ruined with my fiance decided he wanted McDonald's coffee and I of course had to get their hashbrowns which are SOOOOOO good! They like melt in your mouth! So there went my good eating. However for a snack I have ate a banana and I brought an apple and some honey for a snack later which I hear is supposed to be good for you.

Sorry if this is long and not very exciting but I am trying! Plus I haven't written in a  long time and I am on a writing spree! I keep thinking of things I want to write on here and then I lose track of what I was doing! I may have to make more than one blog post today! I just really wish I had some readers! That would be nice! Anyway hopefully here one day soon I will.

I am trying to think of my New Year's Resolutions and so far I have come up with:
  1. I will be in shape for my wedding, I will work out at least every other day, but preferably everyday. Even if it is just sit ups or a quick yoga session or a run. 
  2. I will continue my journey of reading the entire Bible, I fell behind but am determined to read a verse a night or at least every other night.
  3. I will attempt to eat better even if I cheat sometimes I will be okay with it.
  4. I am going to work on my cupcakery business and actually try it out.
  5. I am going to stress less about everything and know that only so much can be done at a time.
  6. I am going to work on my crafting/scrapbooking stuff.
  7. I will actually try to write a book, since I tell myself all the time how fun it would be to write one.
I know that is a lot of resolutions and I am sure I will think of more or maybe cross some off but I like them so far. I mean you only have one life to live so why not make the best of it right?! 

Last night I watched Easy A and I thought it was actually pretty cute. Some parts were embarrassing but there were some pretty funny parts. I know a lot of people probably did not like it but I am silly and usually like movies that critics and other people hate when they write their reviews online. I really want to see Little Fockers, the new Narnia, True Grit and so much more! We haven't been to a movie in a long time! 

I was very proud of myself over Christmas when I was in Tulsa vising my family I actually completed my first scrapbook! It was not as perfect as I would have liked it since I had to guess what I would need and wring it with me since it was a gift for my grandparents, but after spending about 9 nights on it I finally finished it! I am very glad I got it done! It was a lot of work and I know now that I am capable of doing a scrapbook but that maybe doing it slower would be easier! :-) 

For Christmas my wonderful fiance got my a Kindle! I had been looking at all the different e-readers but I have always been one who enjoys actually having the book and was not sure it was worth getting it because I did not think I would like reading on a screen and not having the book. It is actually a lot easier and nicer than I thought it would be! However, I think there are times I will have to read a good old fashioned book just for old times sake, plus I like to read in the bath and sometimes reading makes me sleepy and I dip the books in the water and I don't think the Kindle would last through that. One thing I wish you could do on the Kindle is have like a library system because I will have to buy all the books I want to read, but as my fiance says I am so silly about money that I should not worry about spending $7 on a book. I chose to read Water For Elephants as my first book because I had read they were making a movie and so I thought I would read it. It is not the kind of book I would usually read but I am actually really enjoying it! I can't wait to find out what happens! Of course then I have to decide what to read next! Let's just say my to-read list is like 300 books long and grows every time I log onto GoodReads. I am currently also working my way through the Sookie Stackhouse series so I need to finish those, also the Vampire Diaries and Blue Blood series need to be finished. Yes I am a Vampire/Fantasy kind of book girl, but I am trying to branch out! I also bought a book on the person who built the World Fair and the serial killer who used the fairgrounds for his murders, which is not like me to read at all but I missed my history class books and I have been watching Dexter so I decided to try it. I haven't got very far because I am into Water for Elephants but it is kind of interesting. 

Well okay I think that is all I am going to write for now! I am glad no work tomorrow! I wish I was still in Tulsa! Will write more later or tomorrow! Hope to find some followers! I have been searching blogs to follow as well! If anyone decides to read this and wants me to check out their blog comment and leave it below! And in light of the Christmas season here is one of my favorite movies and a quote! "Hey. If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here...with a big ribbon on his head! And I want to look him straight in the eye, and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?" Ah good old Christmas Vacation we watch it every year!

A Quick Update

Wow i am not doimg a good job at allof keeping up with my blog! My fiance got me a Kindle for Christms and I am loving it! I was not sure at fist what I would think of it because I love reading books so I was not sure how it would be reading on a screen. But it is actually pretty cool. I think  I will still have to read and buy normal books sometimes but I enjoy that you can buy books wheneveryou want. I decided th first book I would read is Water For Elephants so far it is pretty good I am only on chapter three. I also got a history book abouut the creator or architect of the world fair amd also about the serial killer who ued the world fair for his killings. Now I wouldn't usually read about serial killers but I have recently been watching zdexter so I have kind of gotten interested.

 Well the six month countdown to our wedding has started! I definitely feel behind!my mom has finished our save the dates and we are getting ready to send them out!My dress camein bt have to get a different one because there were  a lot of mistakes. i have decided it is also wrkout time because i want nice arms and abs for wedding and honeymoon. So I hope I can make myself do it!

I am out in Tulsa visiting family for Christmas I am very hapy to be out here. I have also been working on my cupcakes and am tryin to start a business. So heres to hoping.
