Last Friday, I came home to a scavenger hunt that ended with a proposal, and two promises that will begin a lifetime together. How crazy! So, after celebrations and congratulations are through, it will be time to plan a wedding.
Being a planner by nature (seriously, I'm not good at spontaneity), I already want to have everything planned yesterday, even though we haven't even been engaged for a week yet. I already know that planning this wedding will pose some struggles for me. It's going to be really hard to just relax and enjoy the process, though that is what I am, more or less, absolutely determined to do. We'll see how that goes, though. I can already feel the stress bearing down on me--there are so many things to plan.
Also, so many pounds to lose. I've been "trying" to lose weight for awhile now--on August 4th, I joined a three month weight loss competition at my place of employment, and while I was trying, I wasn't really trying. Now, aside from the $2,000 cash prize for first place (and not having to give up $100 of my hard earned cash), I have a new incentive: fitting into a wedding dress!
So far this week, I've walked over 6 miles (choosing to walk to work today), and I was sick on Monday. So, I'm hoping I can stick with it, and shed all the pounds I've been meaning to by the big day... or the last fitting!
