Honeymoon: Galveston

last time i was here, i wasnt a married woman yet. but now i am!

and i was also trying to fit into my dress. well i did!

now we are happily on the honeymoon and loving every minute of it. i didnt wanna forget it all, so i wanted to blog about it. ill also blog about the wedding, which went perfectly, once i get my pics in. so here we go.

after waking up at the hotel we stayed at saturday night, we went home to finish packing, stopped by moms to open our cards we received to see if we had any other honeymoon money and hit the road! we were beach bound!

 once we got there we needed food and hit up the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe. i had been there once before and remembered it being very delicious. my memory was right! i got a regular cheeseburger. but it was homemade on a homemade bun. and homemade fries.holy yum!

 afterward we headed to the hotel. and our room wasnt ready... for like 20 mins. so they upgraded us to the suite with the jacuzzi tub! heck yes! we had an ocean view from all 5 of our hotel windows. it was a pretty kick ass room. the jacuzzi tub was big enough to fit 2 ;)

 we then headed out to the beach for awhile, grabbed a quick bite and called it a night. we woke up bright and early the next morning cuz we wanted to be at the beach as the sun was coming up. it was so worth it! since its off season and during the week we basically had the beach to ourselves. it was quiet, but windy and cool. and the water was really cold too.. so i stayed on my towel alot.

 after hanging out there awhile we headed back to to hotel to clean up cuz we had a few places we wanted to go. one being specs to stock up on alcohol and so jamie could go since he hadnt been to one yet. and the other bring russo's for a big pizza slice! then we returned back to the hotel and napped until dinner.

we went to saltgrass for dinner. its one of our favorite spots. i have a spot in my heart for their filet mignon. i was one happy girl!

this morning we slept in then packed up to hit the road for san antonio. we arrived about 3 and headed for the riverwalk. but that will be for another post!

Wedding Week

well, its wedding week. but if its anything like yesterday im gonna rename is "hell week" every person involved in the wedding, except florist and church, called me yesterday.. eeek!

it is also wedding bootcamp week. i tried on my dress sunday for some alterations that we decided not to do, and the dress was a bit more snug than id like. it wasnt popping the seams tight, just uncomfortable. so i plan to cut back on the munchies, drink lots of water, and do some working out.

yesterday i did a turbo jam workout that has left me feeling super sore in my back today.. so ill have to find a much less physical workout today, like just walking. i have a meeting every night this week so im hoping i can fit in all my workouts in the morning.

wish me luck!

Small Victories

this is probably i post i should have done ohhh about a month ago. but better late than never right??\

So about a month ago i woke up to our first beautiful fall morning and i saw this:
 i had no excuse not to get out on the beautiful day.. so i threw on my running clothes and hit the pavement. Jo was right.. the day was gorgeous.. weather nice and cool. perfect running weather. i went into it knowing i wanted to try and run a mile. i go into almost every run like that. ive posted before about how running isnt easy for me. my mind always takes over and tells me i cant. i think im slightly overcoming it though. well this time i was much more determined. and this happened:

i did it! i actually ran a mile! now i know thats a tiny victory.. but it was huge to me! and thats all that matters i suppose.

now that i knew i could run a mile.. it was my new goal to run a mile all the time
and it became easier and easier

but i knew i was ready for more. my plan was to slowly build up my distance and worry about time later. cuz i cant really change my time until i lose some lbs. fact. well that was my plan anyways.. unitl i did this:

though i was super proud of myself.. i then realized i would be setting the bar high to do 2 miles everytime! which i knew wouldnt happen cuz i psych myself out all the time. ive only ran twice since then but shorter distances.. like not even a mile. but hopefully soon i can get myself to run 2 miles again.. and then hopefully 3.1 miles to finally succeed in my goal of running a 5k.. itll happen before the year is over.. i just hope sooner rather than later.
