A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

YOU WILL FEEL BETTER IF YOU GO!!!!  Oh, and I might remember reading something about how it costs you a decent chunk of money to sign up for it?

 

Something I can share that helps me personally:  I like to visually see that I have exercised by keeping track.  I have a whiteboard with all of the days of the week and I "check" off the box when I've gone.  Gives me a sense of accomplishment.  Plus, if I look at it and see that I haven't gone enough I feel guilty and do.

    Definitely go to the class! I went for a 25min lane swim at lunch and am meeting some girls to go for a 7km run after work. I'm not big on running with people, so going with these girls is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone!

     

    All this swimming and running and I think I'll have earned a (one!) glass of wine after dinner tonight :)

      It hasn't happened yet but I am waiting for the day that one of our parents or sisters will complain about the cost. Still thinking about how to go about this. I want my parents there and he wants his mother and sister too. Maybe if they start complaining, we can MAYBE help out? We just don't have the funds to pay for people. Tight budget with the buying furniture for the apartment, starting to pay my school loans, buying a car, etc.

      I went! It was a lot of fun, I'm exhausted now lol I like to jog with my FI, like we hiked yesterday and there's this 1/2 mile that is great for jogging so we jogged it.

      My mother doesn't have the fund to go so we had worked paying for her in our budget, but my TA said we actually will be getting back about $3,500 in credits after everyone books so that will pay for her, our flights, and the rest of our room! WIN. His mother complains about money but than goes out and spends a whole bunch on things she doesn't need or wants to eat out all the time so we refuse to help her out if she's not making an effort.

        That happened to us last weekend, the trail was closed half way up the mountain b/c of the hurricane we had months ago so instead of going back we made our own way lol
