Not to be obnoxious (because this is a complaint post) but usually if you can force yourself to work out for about two weeks (and get over the hump) you’ll end up with MORE energy with consistent workouts.

Thank you! That’s what I keep telling myself, is that if I can just get started, it will get easier…wish me luck 🙂

We had that same “Here you Have” virus at my work too! Annoying!

It’s also Sept. 10th today, so it’s not an anniversary at all.
I am also working on Friday morning while SO is snoozing. Lame!
I’m sad because he is getting paid and has a lot of money at the moment and he had hinted, heavily, that he’d be buying my ring with this money. Last night he said he didn’t know how long it would be before he could do it. I feel selfish and guilty, but I really want to be ‘officially’ engaged. We’re planing a Destination Wedding in May 2012 and we have a small budget. I’m already doing some DIY project so we can spread out the expenses and tackle things ahead of time if possible….but I feel weird telling anyone until it’s official.
I’m a magazine editor and I have a large project due. My material came in, late, and incomplete. Now I’m waiting on my source to provide the completed material. Because I have nothing better to do than sit around and wait, right?
Back to the non-engagement thing – a friend came out and asked when we were planning to get married and I told her. We’re close and she totally understands the situation. I mentioned that I bought a guest book for $4 that corresponds to our ‘theme’ and as I said it, one of my single (never had a real boyfriend) friends made the ‘she’s crazy!’ hand gesture and a face at another single friend. I wanted to smack her in the face.
I’m doing an ovarian cancer walk tomorrow and even though the walk is at 9:45 we’re supposed to meet up at 7:15. AM! I’m all for charity and such but why the F does it have to be so early? And do we really need 2.5 hours for ‘registration?’ I already registered online! The ungodly hour means I can’t go to the Farmer’s Market tomorrow either, and we’ll have to wait until Sunday to get our groceries. Why must these things take place so early? And why do we need a shuttle bus to take us to the location? Come on guys, plan better.
I’ve lost 19.4 lbs (come on 20!) and NO ONE has noticed. I’m heavy and trying very hard to be healthy and active and I’m not doing fad diets so it’s taking a while. But I feel like 20lbs is still significant. My mom, who I feel like is the person who should definitely notice first, has not said anything. When I told her I’d lost 10 she said, “Your sister is down 20. She’s doing Biggest Loser at work!” I haven’t said anything more to her but this weekend she was proud as pudding because my cousin has lost 16 by not eating any carbs. I know I’m not doing it for the praise of others, but it’s my mom. I feel like she should notice and I can’t help wanting a little bit of that pride from her.

I don’t want this to be a political debate thread at all either, but I did want to share that I don’t think there is anything more American than protecting freedom of religion and embracing our “melting pot” of a society- I love it! I understand that the “pastor” has a First Amendment right to do whatever, but so do people who burn the American flag, and it doesn’t make either action less idiotic. Just my two cents 🙂
Complaints? Only that I need a new job, mine is completely depressing and terrible. But can I be the annoying Pollyanna here and say that I love the return of autumn? Yay!

@shaydenise: Its true about hotel reservations! I had guests that literally didnt make reservations until a few days before the wedding – I was freaking out!! We also found out that some of our guests were staying close to 20 miles away because the hotel was $20 cheaper than the one 5 minutes from our wedding venue! We called them and told them to change their hotel so we didnt have to worry about drunk driving.
Im going to complain that my office always has the temperature level at freezing and I have to wear a jacket to work every day!! I hate it!

To reference the 9/11 comments. I understand the sentiment that moderndaisy had. My oldest brother died 9 years ago tomorrow. It still effects our family daily and with the anniversay coming up it is surprisingly difficult to hear so much negativity about America considering you know you lost a loved one because they were in fact American. I don’t feel that WB is the place to bring it up, but since it was mentioned I felt I needed to comment.

Our wedding is next Friday and one of our grooms man from LONDON has not purchased his plan tickets yet because of financial trouble. Yesterday we offered to help with his ticket and for some reason he won’t get back to us so we can purchase it in case prices goes up.

what a fab achievement on the 20lbs! thats progress!!
My complaint.. well I quit my job because i was absolutely miserable.. but now people are making me feel miserable because for the first time in 7 years im not working or been unemployed and I feel awkward when people ask what im doing next… I HAVE NO FRIGGEN IDEA!!
one of my gfs is in her hibernation time of.. i found the love of my life and so blissfully happy that i must race home to see formentioned bf and cancel on our coffee for the third time in a row or cuts things early to go home to her bf. While this is nice and all and i can understand that her bf is important i really want to just tell her to straight that she can enjoy a bit of indepence every now and again and it wouldnt hurt! I miss my friend and just want to share a little.
thats it for now!

Oh yay! A Bitchfest! I’m in!!!
- I’m indecisive. To a fault. And my mother & sister aren’t interested in helping at all. My Maid/Matron of Honor will & does, but she doesn’t have a lot of wedding knowledge. And I.CANT.MAKE.UP.MY.MIND! Grrrrr. This is also why I’m now over on my floral budget.
- My RSVP deadline is less that a week away and I only have half the repsonses. Oh, and my mom and one Future Sister-In-Law are part of the lagging group. Sweet. Thanks.
- Fiance said he’d plan the honeymoon. But I have done 99.999999999% of the work.
- I’m picking up the slack for a slacker at work. Like I don’t already have enought to do??? (Like post on wedding bee, for example)
Done. yay Friday!

Yay! Some place I can complain! My complaints-
*there are certain people I didn’t want to invite in the first place but felt pressure to from family. let’s just say these certain people I didn’t want to invite are now wanting to bring people who I absolutely did not invite, and I’m almost out of space at my venue. now I need to explain to the original people who I didn’t want to invite but are invited that they can’t bring their additional “guests” (and it makes me feel like such a bridezilla)
*I don’t know when my dress will be ready. I have been trying to contact the dressmaker and she hasn’t gotten back to me. there are about 20 days until my wedding. I will also have to drive 5 hours to pick up this dress. uggg
And I’m sure there are more things I could vent, but those are the top two things frustrating me right now. If I were having a free-for-all wedding, the additional guests wouldn’t bother me as much, but I’m having a smallish wedding and my venue can only hold so many people ( before I run out of seats, food and get charged a $500 fine for having too many people). uggggggggggg

20 lbs. is a lot! You should be really proud, especially since you did it the healthy way.
