Something that I haven’t mentioned before on the blog is that I am engaged. My fiancé Josh popped the question in Australia at Thala Beach Lodge at a romantic picnic on the beach. I could only picture exotic places when deciding on a wedding location, so we set our hearts on Hawaii and are now in the midst of planning a destination wedding. The date has not been set yet, and there is still a lot to do, but we’re trying to take our time and enjoy the process.
One big thing I managed to check off my to do list so far was to find a dress. At my very first dress appointment at Kleinfeld’s I found the dress. After celebration champagne, the seamstress came in and took my measurements for ordering the dress. She told me that I was between sizes and she recommended for my frame that I go with the size smaller. I trusted her and went with the size down but now TALK ABOUT PRESSURE. Like most brides I was already planning to do some more work outs to tone up before the wedding date, but now I have a real reason to do it – so I’ll actually be able to fit into my dress!

Aside from fitting into my wedding dress, I really feel like I owe it to myself to treat my body better. Part of my plan to get fit is to start going to the gym more often at GoodLife Fitness. It’s not easy for me to make the effort to get to the gym at first, but once I start going often, it becomes addictive. My biggest goal is to slim down a size or two and tone up so that I won’t feel nervous when it’s time to hit the beach in Hawaii! Of course my first logical step when I decided to hit the gym again was to go out and get a new workout outfit!
