@ hahaha "Ain't nothing wrong with a little yolo-ing every now and then".  You're so right!  And you can come over to Mama Dee's kitchen for gnocchi any time you like!!  I can't bake but I'm a decent cook  :) I screwed up the chocolate mousse lol so you would have to bring the dessert.

 

@@Wafflesmom Ugh sooo annoying how quick their bodies respond!  The guy has like insta-abs and you can already see them coming through.  I'm going to have to beat him, I'm too competitive lol

 

We are waiting on 4 out of 19 people to pay their balances so we're in good shape  :) Someone literally messaged me while I was typing this to let me know they paid. The UK people have their own deadlines as it was more expensive to get them a group rate and they booked on their own.  Our deadline was a bit earlier because they included an "early booking bonus" which made it possible to get the trips for $1259 pp.

 

I actually love my new flower arrangement, I'm feeling really confident with it.  Thanks for all your feedback.  It's so helpful to post some pics and get opinions!

 

I got naughty cupcakes for the bachelorette - they have umm "male genitals" on top lol.  It was so awkward ordering - I was like "ummm they don't need to be realistic... I want her to know what they are but it's not a science class so I don't need details..." lol  I'm picking them up from a bakery on the way to Ottawa on Saturday.  I would post pictures but I don't know if I'm aloud lol

@@calgarybride2015 that sounds like so much fun! Is there dancing? If there is, just dance up a storm and get some cardio while there lol. And one meal won't ruin your hard work, as long as you don't go crazy. But we all know that's easier said than done. Post pics please, I'd love to see your outfit

Thanks @@Wafflesmom

I think it's more just because it happens so close to weight in.

 

Apparently there is dancing, aerial dancers, artists drawing, scotch tasting and much more. It's a whole red carpet affair. We shall see what other surprises are in store. I work for non profit so it's all to help our clinic :)

 

I was a bit nervous about what to wear as I didn't wanna spend tonnes of money on something I'll never wear again! I borrowed a black sleeveless dress from my friend. I've purchased a head band with bird cage, long pearls, a boa, lace gloves and fish net stockings! Should play the part well enough!!!

So it's Thursday and time for the weekly check-in. I'm happy to say that I accomplished my exercise goal of working out 4x this week, bootcamp on Monday and Wednesday, and Pilates Tuesday and today!! I feel so good! I wasn't do good with my diet though and didn't pack lunch at all. I chose healthier options from the cafeteria but it would have been better if I brought my own lunch. I've also been snacking more often so I should curb that.

 

For wedding goals, I've filled out all my legal forms and other forms for our resort and I'll be sending that off tomorrow. I neglected my OOT bags but I'll work on that this weekend.

 

So for my goals next week:

- definitely eat better and meal prep all week, especially for work

- workout at least 4x and since Der has his bachelor party this weekend, I think I'm gonna add an additional session of each, bootcamp on Saturday and Pilates on Sunday. So hoping for 6 exercise sessions.between that and eating better, hopefully that will make up for my last two weeks of unhealthy snacking

- for wedding planning goals I plan on shopping for OOT bag items (I really need to get these), work on tags for the place cards and OOT bags, review our PO which I'm supposed to get this week and with the help of @, finish our table number displays.

 

Wish me luck!

@@Wafflesmom well done with all those workouts! That's fantastic! You are crushing it! You'll really see the difference when you curb snacking and you wallet will thank you for packing lunches haha.

 

My update. Mentally I feel like I faked this week. I worked out Monday and Tuesday. The rest of my week I've been so exhausted and it's affected my fitness and nutrition. I caved and ate chips on Monday, Wednesday I had a big bowl of pasta and didn't workout, last night I ate pho and didn't workout. I seem to fail as soon as I get home from work. I eat super clean and healthy all day, then I'm weak when I get home. I've been sticking to 21 day fix with my new cook book (it's called Fixate) but I don't stick to it with dinners which I'm sure will kill my results. I also have cupcake tasting tomorrow morning or my ARH and that won't work well with my diet. I intend to get back to it and stay committed ALL day every day

Didn't need to worry about going crazy! I thought it was a sit down dinner and it was not!

I probably still went over because they cook yummy things with so much butter and oil, etc.

but all I had was...

 

- one little ball of sorts (not sure what it was)

- one little bread with pesto/bruschetta like topping on it

- one little cake dessert

- small glass of champagne

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
