Dinner With Skinny Bride

I love LOVE love my life:) Sometimes I could seriously just jump up and down and sing about how thankful I am for the friends I have. Even though I only had about 3.5 hours of sleep last night I managed to push through the day and have a good one at that!

When I got off work I hit up the gym for a little AKB and then went back to school to do some Pilates with my Bootcamp ladies! I was so proud almost 10 girls showed up and we really worked our cores. I kind of forgot about Pilates, I really haven’t done any Pilates since I did Windsar Pilates in COLLEGE! I can remember it so well, on the floor in my little apartment, even making the college basketball boys do them with me:)

Skinny Bride came to Pilates with me and afterwards we went on a 2 mile walk back to her house for some dinner and Wedding TALK! Skinny Bride was so sweet and made me a nutritious and delicious meal!

First we chatted while she cooked, I enjoyed my share of these sweet cherries, the first time I have had them this year!food 019

We toasted to Skinny Bride’s almost 10 pound loss!!!! She is doing great, she is seriously so determined and positive!

She made us Organic Brown Rice from TJ’s that I have never seen before, I must get some ASAP!

We ate and chatted about decorations, flowers, and all sorts of wedding details. I am so excited to be in this girls life, and wedding! We share SO MUCH in common and I have been blessed to have her as a friend for the past 10 YEARS!!!

All this talking about weddings got me thinking about my big day, here is a photo for your enjoyment:)


When I got home I was warmly greeted by my two favorite men!!!

I am hitting the hay peeps, I have a 5:15am wake up call to run 3 miles with fast Jill.

Nite Nite

P.S. I wanted to answer a question that a recent commenter left about the R.D. switch. I switched to getting my Personal Training License and Nutrition Certificate for two reasons,

#1 Both Licenses would work perfect for what I want to do
#2. Financially it was the better route for now:) Ultimately I would love to get my R.D. masters, all in God’s timing.

SB sounds like a great friend!!

Loved the wedding photo you shared...too funny because my BM dresses are almost identical (tea length, red), the bottom of my dress is similar and also strapless, and I have an uneven bridal party (5 girls, 4 guys!)

SB is doing such a wonderful job. I am sure your support is a huge boost.

Your wedding dress looks beautiful and what a perfect day.

I was at Trader Joes last night - I wish I had seen that rice!

TJ's brown rice is the only kind I will buy. It cooks perfectly EVERY time, so I can't screw it up! :)

Brandi said...

congrats to SB - she is doing awesome!

I love the wedding pic - so pretty.

What certifications are you getting for the trainer/nutrition? I think those will be the perfect job for you :)

Trish said...

Bosco is so cute! Great wedding photo.

Bosco's such a cutie pie!

Loved the wedding photo! Thanks for the pt/ nutrition license info (I hope I didn't come across as condemning or anything yesterday, I was just really curious, as I'm in a rather similar situation myself). I know you will be a fantastic personal trainer, and I would probably hire you if I didn't live across the country!! :)

RunToFinish said...

I love your life too :) YEAH SB!! I hope she is having fun with the little package I sent, speaking of I hope my Simple Life buddy didn't forget me

Bobz it was SO great spending time with you last night! I felt the most relaxed I have in SO long and got to bed before 12 last night!! You know that is a big deal for me LOL. And your readers are correct...your support is making this process a LOT easier for me! From the wedding stuff to the weight loss and more. To tell your readers, the weight has been sloooooowly coming off since I first embarked on this journey (at first nothing came off LOL) but I have consistently loss over a pound per week for the last 5 weeks now. I will not be able to reach my 40 lb goal by the wedding but if I keep going like this, another 15lbs is possible and I would be beyoooond happy. I did take my measurements a while ago so I can post those soon if your readers would be interested?

So glad you liked my dinner! We forgot your tofu and hour photocopies!!
