Oops!

Gosh, guys.

It seems like I'm the most inconsistent blogger to ever have a blog.

Sorry!!!

In other news, I've decided to turn over a new leaf health-wise.
I've always been really skinny (sometimes tooooo skinny! I looked like Gollum in high school), but I'm certainly not in shape.

I get winded walking across the parking lot to chapel.

So!

In order to try and build my mister a hot honeymoon bod (I mean, really. It's such a good incentive to be a little more trimmed and toned when you know someone is going to see you NAKED in six months. How weird!) I've been working out a little and trying to make wiser food decisions!

I'm terribly proud of myself, because I love, love, love food. I love it.
So I certainly can't sacrifice taste and that nice luxurious feeling when you're eating something divine.

I've been eating a lot of artisan lettuce with lots of dried fruit and a homemade dressing (lemon, zest, olive oil, pepper, ginger, a little sugar). I'm trying to use less butter when I'm cooking (which is probably the hardest thing. I love butter) and trying to drink water with every meal. (Although I'm still allowing myself a morning coffee. And possibly an evening coffee.)

Also, I've been doing a pretty intense yoga video (I can do the crow!) and yesterday I did 75 lunges and some crunches and tricep things and curls. Plus, I went sort-of snowboarding for a few hours in the, might I suggest, ridiculous blanket of snow on the ground. Hello... this is Tennessee. I have not been snowed in since 1993, and I didn't like it one bit. (Except I admit it's very pretty and I like to play in it. However, it prevented me from getting to the store, so I had to eat only oranges, coffee, plain rice, and stale crackers for two days.)

Let's hope I can keep it up!

More about engagement later.

  1. Seems like a lot of us are trying to get in shape these days. Can't say I'm doing it for the same reasons you are, though. ;) You are so adorable!

    Still excited to hear about the engagement when you put it up! And, you can call me Linja whenever you like. Smile.
