well thats even better!!!

OK have you girls noticed how much sodium is in EVERYTHING?! Seriously isn't sodium bad and makes you retain water?
yes, sodium is bad. awhile ago I was using selfdietclub.com to log my food choices and if something wasn't in there list you entered all the nutrition information yourself. It made me realize how much sodium is in everything, especially canned soup!!! I was eating vegetable soup which you would think lo cal good for you right?? well if I ate the whole can, which is 2 servings, it was almost my whole days worth of sodium!!

make sure you keep drinking tons of water, I feel like I didn't drink as much as I should have today.

Yep. I was looking at our pre cooked mequite chicken breasts, thinking they wer ea healthy choice but they have 60% of your daily sodium intake. That is crazy. Then I started looking at everything. Salad dressing is another bad one. Ugh. I feel so frusterated.

 

Last night was J's bachelor party and I went to a friends going away. I ordered a $16 ceasar salad which was very small and a bowl of the soup of the day which was also small. I was soo hungry so I went for the bread. I feel so guilty. Stupid fancy restaurants.

You still did really really good. Seriously. You could have ordered pasta or something, which I would have done. So a little bread is totally fine.

Today is my shower and I am so afriad of what I am going to eat. lol I am sure I will have a bad post later on today.

at least you tried to be good! We went out to our favorite chinese food restaurant. We always get the same thing when we go, a pu pu platter for 2 with extra crab rangoons, beef lo mein, and two mai tai's each. Do you think we did any different last night?? Nope! I feel so guilty!

So I have to be really good today.

Jill, I would have done the same thing. Especially since we rarely ever go out now due to saving money for the wedding. So, don't feel bad. I think we should have 1 day a week to eat a little bad and then get over it by being good the rest of the week. So, be good today.

I hope you are right and I am too busy to eat much. Also, I find I eat less when people are looking at me. lol I hope they are not looking too much, but I am sure they will be.

I do not have pics yet, but it was amazing. I am so happy. I did not even want one, I told them not to have one for me. But they decided I needed one anyway and I am so happy about it.

I actually did pretty well with my eating, Jill was right I was doing too much talking and moving around to eat much. I will not tell you what I did eat cause it will make you all drool, but it was a great time.

I will have pics soon. My friend took 2 rolls of film and has some digital ones. So, she will send them to me when she gets a chance and I will develop the film ones hopefully tonight.

You guys are doing so flippin good! Social eating situations always give me anxiety because I just know there is always that little angel or devil telling you what to eat from the buffet table! Sounds like everyone survived the last few events. I like the idea of eating before you go.....but then I'd probably just end up having two dinners...whoops!

 

Keep it up ladies....you are almost to your wedding dates!!! yay!!!

I thought I would have a really hard time after the weekend of not eating perfectly, but yesterday and today I have been really really good. I also went to the gym last night for 50 mins of cardio and I have boot camp tonight. How are you ladies doing?

I've been okay, I've been trying to eat 5-6 small meals a day and stay between 1200-1500 calories and I did get up and exercise yesterday, but not today. I went to the grocery store tonight, so that always helps.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
