  • Wedding: June 2013

How’s everyone doing on their list? I haven’t been to the gym since last Monday but I went skiing on Saturday. Tuesday a guest artist came to my dance studio and did a master class and my butt is considering itself officially kicked!

Then yesterday I subbed for my boss’s jazz class and they wanted to do crunches so we didn’t about 20 minutes of muscle toning activities!

Yesterday I had a slice of chocolate pie πŸ™ but after I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I was like “this stuff is working!” so no more pie for me. And I don’t feel sad either.

@missjuli:  I’m doing ok on mine!

  1. Get down to goal weight and get more toned. – Slacking in this department, but I did some lunges in my office at work lol and I’m going to the gym on Saturday!
  2. Keep on saving for the wedding! – Still saving, I got paid yesterday and put a chunk in my savings account.  I should have $8000 by the end of the year if all goes well.
  3. Get in a better housekeeping routine. – I could be doing better, but I did manage to do laundry last night even though I really didn’t feel like it!

@bloodtipped:  Most of these ladies do not know exactly when their SO is going to propose. πŸ™‚ However, most of them have a rough timeline to work with, some have nothing, and a few have an SO that has let something slip regarding the proposal!

  • Wedding: November 2013

Boyfriend or Best Friend and I bought a ring on Saturday, but I have no idea when he’s going to give it to me. I’ll play because there are things I want to do before we get married:

1. lose 25 lbs

2. get a breast reduction

3. pay off 1/2 of my current debt

4. stick to a beauty regiment

5. Grow out my hair as long as possible

6. decide on a new hair colour (or get my hair coloured back to the original to get rid of my highlights that I got forever ago. They’re subtle enough that you don’t really notice them unless you know they’re there).

– Pay down my credit card by 50% by end of year

– Increase my 401k contribution

I love the idea of this!

    1. Keep growing my hair but keep it healthy (ie, get a trim already)
    2. Read all the books I’ve bought from Betterworldbooks and havent yet read
    3. Throw everything into my projects at work
    4. Get better at cooking

    ETA – keep saving! I’m ok 22k at the moment… Would like at least 30k. 

    I hope that’s enough to keep me going…!
