Advice Needed

Wedding Invitations

Who’s been to a wedding or had a wedding? I need some advice.

Another wedding invitation and no boy to go with.

I can actually invite someone to this one … so should I ask someone?

This time it’s my old high school best friend, Alyssa’s, wedding. Of course like everyone else, we got distant and we made our own friends so I don’t know who she’s inviting to the wedding. I don’t know if I would know anyone there but her and her family. I’m a little scared that if I don’t invite someone to come with, I will not know anyone. But then again if I do invite someone, they might get bored. Plus I’m afraid to ask someone. Bleugh. Don’t know what to do.

Workout Grind

I went to bed at 5am. Yes. I am horrible. I was hoping to have 7 hours of sleep and wake up around 12pm. But that didn’t happen.

Instead I woke up at 7am. Why?

Because Rocky needed to use the bathroom and eat breakfast so he jumped on my bed and licked my face.

Wonderful.

I’m not as sore as I thought I’d be when I woke up. Either the workout is not as intense as it should be or I didn’t give it my all like I should have. I’m sure I’ll feel the pain later on in the week.

Today’s workout:

45 min cardio

Done.

I was doing my outside Power Walk when it started to rain.

I snapped this picture before that happened. What is up with people these days?! I would not want my kids to see stuff like this … if and whenever I do have kids.

My 3 week plan all written out along with my Cool Down workouts. This makes me more accountable. Whoop! 19 days to go!

I’ve been eating scrambled eggs with veggies and then lately adding avocados in. Broccoli the first day. Cauliflower the next. Then Spinach because I want to be like Popeye.

Yum! 86% is very bitter but it’s so sweet in my mouth. One square = great dessert!

Let me know if you can answer my wedding question. It’ll be much appreciated!

Starbucks Date

With Michelle!

But before that, I was at Walgreens and I bumped into an old Junior High/High School peer, Victoria Z. She’s grown up to a beautiful women. We caught up for a bit and then went our separate ways. It’s always nice to see old schoolmates doing well.

Anyway, I went to Michelle’s workplace and then we walked to Starbucks. We talked for an hour and a half about jobs and boyfriends her boyfriend and the one I like that won’t ever be. Stupid distance. He probably doesn’t even remember me anymore. Embarrassed smile

I’m split. I love being home because I get to see my friends here more but I miss everyone in SA. Everyone who I’ve learned to truly open up with and has made a big impact in my life. In the back of my mind I know I’ll never see 1/3 of them ever again. Sad? It’s the truth.

Workout Grind

I have 3 weeks until Hong Kong so I’m trying to get ready for it. All that walking in the heat is going to kill me.

I found a 3 week workout that’s suppose to get you in shape for Spring Break but Spring Break … Hong Kong … same difference, right?

30 minute cardio
Arm: 3 sets of 12 with 5 lb. weight
     – Tricep Extensions
     – Bicep Curls
     – Pushups
     – Shoulder Presses
Ab: 3 sets
     – Plank – 30 sec hold
     – Crunches – 12 center, 12 left, 12 right
Leg: 3 sets
     – Forward Lunges – 12 right, 12 left
     – Squats – 10
     – Wall Sits – 30 sec hold

For the cardio, since I have a sprained ankle, I power walked for 30 minutes with Rocky.

It was a struggle with the leg workouts but I powered through. Especially with the wall sits. I will do those amazingly one day!

I didn’t do a warm-up but I did do a cool down.

Calf Raise Down
Lying Straight, Leg to Chest
Stretch Lying
Toe Grab
One Leg Over
Looking at Ceiling
Lying Trunk Twists

Now I feel so powerful. Twenty more days to go!

Cannot wait for my ankle to heal so I can do my runs! Smile
