What’s Up Wednesday: January 2016 Edition
What we’re eating this week
What we’re eating this week… hmm well let’s see. Tommy and I have been trying harder to eat healthier ever since we got engaged. We want to be ready and in shape for the wedding but this week we haven’t been doing so well. I’ve been so busy that I really haven’t had much time to meal plan so I’ve just been eating what my mom has been making and it hasn’t been healthy I can tell you that much. Last night Tommy took me out to a new diner we haven’t ever gone too and I ate a Philly Cheese steak – which was obviously not healthy but soo worth it 😉
What I’m reminiscing about
Just this morning I was reminiscing about our Bahama trip from August. I’m just over winter and really wish I was on a beach. I can’t wait for our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic!
What I’m loving
Having soo much down time at work. Since mostly everyone I used to work with had their last day in December, there has basically been no work for us to do since the beginning of the year. It has literally left me with basically 8 hours to do whatever I want at work. I’ve been planning the wedding a lot, and reading soo much – I absolutely love it.
What we’ve been up to
Of course wedding planning. We started our first premartial counseling session on Monday night. We also recently started a workout program which is exciting but not at the same time. We’re also on the verge of booking our caterer and DJ too!
What I’m dreading
I’m sort of dreading finding a new job. I’ve had this one for the past 5 and a half years and I’m not really up for the awkwardness that is job interviewing and making new friends. 🙁
What I’m working on
Right now I’m focusing on trying to eat healthier/meal planning and sticking to a fitness routine. The program we are doing is called Plyo Madness by Sophie Grey. I did it over a year ago and it really burns fat well and you only have to workout 4 times a week for 30 mins. It’s great. I’m also working on being more consistent with this little blog of mine as well. AND I’m trying to push myself outside my comfort zone. Tommy and I are working on joining a small group – our first meeting is tomorrow! (PS pray for us, we’re super nervous and introverted haha).
What I’m excited about
Trying new things and seeing the results of them – see above (healthy eating, fitness).
What I’m watching/reading
Tommy and I just finished Dexter and we LOVED it. I’m still watching Gossip Girl in my free time and I love me some Teen Mom (don’t judge me pls).
I’ve been reading so much since the beginning of the year. Right now I’m in the middle of Changes That Heal and The Daylight Marriage. I’m just at the beginning of both of them but they’re pretty good so far. Tommy got me The Daylight Marriage for my birthday because he knows how much I’ve loved reading so much lately and he also knows how much I love marriage. He’s just too sweet and thoughtful.
What I’m listening to
Currently nothing but I’ve been really loving me some country music more than normal lately. Probably because it reminds me of summer and I just wish it was summer already.
What I’m wearing
Just some work clothes with my knit scarf – kind of like the one up top, it’s just too comfy to take off when I come in from outside. I haven’t been going too over the top with dressing nicely lately since there really isn’t anyone left in my building haha. I’ve just been dressing very comfy and I looove it.
What I’m doing this weekend
Tommy and I have big plans this weekend. We haven’t been doing too much lately because of it being so cold outside and last weekend we were just couped up in the house because of the snow. This weekend though we’re going to be busy. On Sunday we’re going to go to church, go on a brunch date, go to our second premarital counseling session, and then go make homemade ravioli’s with Tommy’s grandma! How fun is that! I can’t wait.
What I’m looking forward to next month
I’m looking forward to spending my second Valentine’s Day with Tommy. (Last year he made me dinner, which was awesome – pictured above). I’m also excited to being one month closer to marrying my best friend!
What else is new
Not much has been going on besides that. Tonight we are doing a tasting for the wedding and I’m really excited about that but that’s really it. OH and also we celebrated our birthday’s last week too! Tommy’s was Thursday and we had chinese food at Tommy’s house and then Friday was mine and Tommy took me out to this fancy Italian restaurant and it was perfect.
