Before I get to this morning’s post, I wanted to share a wedding moment that occurred last night:
Last night Nolan and I were watching “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” when all of the sudden we looked up and saw this…
Look familiar? It should 🙂 The movie “The Invention of Lying” actually used the Martha Mary Chapel as well for their wedding scene! I can’t wait for my 15 minutes of fame in these walls 🙂
So yesterday I went to write something on my calendar and saw this…
Wow talk about living in the past!
Since I have been living in zombie world, (Yup- still covered in hives btw. This is day 5 of being itchy :-(), I have spent a lot of time looking at blogs and stalking on Facebook. I have been looking for pictures to add to my scrapbook and I came across some VERY scary pictures of me from college. I don’t even recognize this 130+ pound girl and her lifestyle anymore. I am going to embarrass the HELL out of myself right now, but I acknowledge how important it is to face and accept the past in order to successfully more forward to a bigger and better future.
These pictures were taken about a year apart with about a 30 pound difference. (Keep in mind I’m only 5’2.) The sad part is that I had NO IDEA how big I had gotten and no one to blame but myself and my terrible habits.
- No exercise at all. Zero.
- Fast food at least twice a week (Wendy’s!!!)
- Too much alcohol
- Not enough sleep
- Pessimistic attitude
- Terrible asthma
- Exercise 4-5 times a week
- Balanced meals
- Cooking majority of meals
- Inhaler free 🙂
- Positive attitude
- At least 8 hrs of sleep a night
- Limited alcohol
This was certainly no easy adjustment. There were many ups and downs but I have finally reached a happy, balanced place in my life and I just want to savor it all 🙂 Enjoy the day.
P.S: I added a new menu on Savor Life’s Flavors so that I can keep track of my Summer Bucket List more efficiently!
