Hello again

I am a bad bad blogger. Just realized that I haven't blogged since June 17th and so much has been going on. *sigh*

I have been incredibly busy at work, which is fine by me. I don't like the fact that I only have 1 full day left to use for the rest of the year. Stupid me for using them all up in the first half, minus the 12 days I'm taking for our honeymoon. I could have used a few days off in the past couple weeks, it's been super stressful, mentally and physically.

Weight wise, not much going on. I have been under 200 and in the 190's since February. I was down to 190.2 for about a week or two. Now I have been floating between 194-197 since. So frustrating and I wish I could stop focusing so much on the number, but I just can't. I feel better, yes, but I know my eating habits could be so much better. I go for a check up next Friday, the 6th, so I might get a teeny tiny fill back in (like .1 or .2). We'll see. My exercise is excellent and I love it, need I say more? I would never have guessed that I would have loved being so active, even if it's just a simple 2-3 mile walk, like tonight.

THE wedding. Why yes, it's fast approaching (October 12th!!!). Almost a month away, 6 weeks from tomorrow. I can't believe it!! I picked up our marriage license today, yay! I can officially get married now, haha. Had some family drama about 2-3 weeks ago which started a good 2-3 absolutely crazy time for me. About 2-3 days after that drama, I found a lump in my right breast, saw my Dr. the next day. I then scheduled a mammo/ultrasound for the following Tuesday. From the ultrasound, they pretty much said it was 2 small fibroadenomas, I could either wait 2 years to see 'if' it changes or get a biopsy. So, I got the biopsy, this past Monday and I got the results yesterday, BENIGN!! WHEW! HUGE weight lifted from my life right now.

Then we found out the chair covers we were supposed to borrow were sold (by a friend of a friend), how nice right? So tomorrow we are driving to Lebanon (courtesy of my awesome mom) to pick up ones she found on Craigslist. Hopefully they aren't completely terrible.

Pretty much all the big stuff is done/ready/paid off. We just owe the photographer half the money (what was left). We owe part of the limo yet and of course, the food. We're still getting RSVP's in, got 7 today, but still missing quite a bit, hoping more come next week (I gave a deadline of September 7th).

And to continue with the weight part, I had my first dress fitting the day I found my breast lump, should have just cancelled, but I didn't. I put it on, it fit, zipped, etc. BUT it felt a teensy bit tight across my lower hips/stomach. My worst freaking area that I HATE and all my weight seems to congregate there. :( I pretty much freaked out and was depressed for the whole fitting. I didn't have good underwear on, so I invested in some spanx from Kohl's this past weekend, so hopefully that will help suck a teeny bit in and smooth things out. I would KILL for a tummy tuck and arm/thigh lift. :( If only...

The honeymoon is coming along quite well. We are heading to Italy for 2 weeks and I couldn't be more excited about it. I never thought I would ever make it back, so I am beyond excited to experience it all over again, but with more respect and with my love. :D We have a Traveler's Joy honeymoon registry, which is pretty damn cool. I can choose pre-determined things they have on their site or add my own. I did a few of each and we already got 2 gifts, yay!

Not much else going on in my life, just working and planning this crazy wedding lol. I just want to enjoy myself and have a good time with my closest peeps.

I miss blogging, I need to keep up with this.
