Upon reflection…or should I say because of the obvious fact that I have only blogged once this week. I think that sometimes I need to do my daily challenge the morning after the day. Like today. So I present you my yesterday.
On Wednesday I lamented about being very unproductive so yesterday I was productive! I went to class at 7:30, ran, met up with a partner from class st Starbucks to do some homework, laid out in the gorgeous weather (and sunburned myself like a loser) and went to a fake wedding!
Last minute I got tickets to The NotWedding from the “bride” who is a friend from high school who is actually already married! I went solo since I couldn’t find a companion last-minute and although it was a little awkward because it is basically an alternative to a bridal show I kept getting asked, “So are you a bride…when are you getting married?” Hmm…No to the first question and about the second one? Yea I don’t know. It actually went more like, well not, but I know the “bride” and really like wedding stuff/ am an event planner in my dreams. It wasn’t as awkward as it sounds and all the vendors and guests were so nice! It was a really great time!
Yesterday’s Photos of the Day
Here’s the beautiful “bride and groom” at their adorable “engagement” shoot with bluelane studios.
Here is my “something blue” dress for the “wedding!”
This was my favorite table design at the wedding! It’s a window pane! The website asked us not to bring our cameras and wait for the photographers to share their photos so I apologize for the iPhone quality!
Chocolate Chip Brownie Larabar and a banana!
Decaf Iced Coffee with Soymilk and Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (SF is gross…never again!)
2 pieces of california roll and 2 pieces of inari! Yum!
Delicious dinner at The NotWedding catered by John Michael Events. Mediterranean salad, honey roasted carrots, cauliflower souffle, and a sun-dried tomato ravioli. All were absolutely delicious! This was obviously not a dairy free meal though!
Decaf coffee with a rock sugar stir-er! And two YumYum Cupcake Truck cupcakes, always amazing!
I finally started Week 2 of Running 101! I don’t know why but every time I go to run I get nervous like I cannot not it and clearly I can! yesterday was a 5 minute warm up, 1/1 run/walk intervals times 10 and then a 10 minute cool down and I felt great! So I’m not sure why I get so nervous? I was especially nervous last Friday when I did week 1′s challenge 1 mile for time and I fretted over going out to do it but when I finally did it only took me 9 minutes! So tomorrow when I do my next workout I’m going to try to get up and at em early, not like today at 11, and just do it!
I was so concerned with going to The Not Wedding myself but I was pleasantly surprised with how well I handled going solo and I left feeling very confident in myself! However I went from feeling confident to feeling horrible when I got home. I started eating a few of those Red White and Blue spicy tortilla chips and ate a few more than I planned on and passed out while watching Game Change the movie about Sarah Palin on HBO.
Rob had to force me to wake up to take off my makeup and then I got out the M&M Pretzels since it has turned into my dairy day of the week. And after the chips and M&M’s it was all down hill from there and I ended up with a belly ache resulting in a heart ache over the fact that I had once again given into silly cravings and felt terrible for it. I don’t know how I don’t see it coming it always hits late at night but I always fall prey to it anyway. I guess next time I really need to exercise some self-control.
Today has started out very lazily! I think it’s about time drag my butt out of bed and get something done!
