Wedding Venue Decided!!

Sunday, January 08, 2012

I slept in this morning -- great "me time" for my Cloverleaf Team points emoticon.
One thing I am going to do on weekends is to keep my breakfasts as eggs and oatmeal. My husband always makes pancakes or Belgian waffles. After breakfast I went downstairs and walked on the treadmill for 75 minutes and finished my book.

This afternoon we went and looked at a church that has an outdoor pavilion and a beautiful meadow surrounded by pine trees. It was perfect. And the cost was definitely in our small budget:) It is nice to have the venue decided. Now we can go forward on the other plans. Tomorrow we will go to the first bridal show.

Daily Goals checked off:
2. Exercise
--120 min a day emoticon (75 on treadmill & 45 walking) -- 7 days this week!
--go to gym 4-5x's a week --- didn't go today, but went 5 days this week
--do a walk at home DVD 5x's a week emoticon - not today, but did 5x/s this week
--walk on the treadmill at home at least 30 min 5x's a week emoticon - 5x's this week
--do one SP exercise video or some strength training BEFORE doing SP :(

3. Water
--Drink 10-12 glasses a day (80-96 oz) 10 oz emoticon

4. Food
--stay within calorie range of 1400-1600 calories a day. emoticon
--eat lean protein, vegetables and fruits, limit carbs emoticon (dessert night at church)
--curb mindless snacking, drink water emoticon
--try a new recipe each month for a total of 12 recipes
1. Blog daily - emoticon

2. Write lists of what I need to do each day -- didn't write a list, but did accomplish main goal of looking at the church

    Congrats on the upcoming marriage of your daughter. My kids are at that age that it may happen all at once for our house. Yikes!

    There's wedding planning going on in our lives as well. My future DIL was looking at reception venues, but couldn't find one in the area that would seat 500! 500! DS said perhaps they should limit the guest list...it's down to 300 now, and the bride is at her dad's this weekend and it will be interesting to see what the # is after this weekend! Her father suggested over Christmas when they were there that perhaps they could get married on the lawn and they could have a fish fry! emoticon Since the bride does not like fish, I think that is telling! emoticon
