what's happening currently

April 16, 2014

Hi lovelies.  My posts are coming less and less and I really do apologize.  Let me preface this post by saying that no one wants to read about the weather and how the pollen is destroying me, but it's part of the reason I haven't posted.  My eyes, between bad eyesight and the aforementioned pollen, have gone from bad to worst in a hot minute.  I'm way overdue for an eye exam, so thankfully I have one of those scheduled for tomorrow.  I need new glasses like ASAP.  Really, like 6 months ago... #whoops.  I also can't stop sneezing, my vision is super blurry and watery, my nose is running and I'm basically just a hot mess from the lips up.  Thus, my many reasons for not posting.  Basically, I just can't look at the computer anymore than I already have to for work and school.  But I do it for you people!  Because I love ya.

moving along... 

This past Saturday me and one of my BFF's/Bridesmaids, Rene, completed the Color Me Rad 5k!  We walked the whole thing, which I was perfectly fine with.  The course was tough!  There were several hills to climb and I had to really dig deep for that momentum to get me up those hills!  Like, legit mountainous hills.  But it was SO much fun.  We even went to eat lunch with our respective men-friends afterwards, looking like a hot rainbow mess.  This is definitely something I will participate in again.  

It was also SUPER hot on Saturday.  And when I say super hot, I mean around 80.  If anyone would like to know the temperature outside today, you know, just for giggles, it's 46 degrees outside.  It was 36 when I left the house.  Seeing this yesterday pretty much summed up my thoughts on the horrendous weather:

AAAAAND EXACTLY.  It's been cold here for so long that 80 degrees felt like 100!  I can't even imagine what this summer is going to feel like.  Hell, probably.

In other fun news, Ben and I are going to pick out our wedding invitations tomorrow!  I think this is going to be my favorite thing that we've done so far.  There are just so many beautiful options and I can't wait to see them all.  

In a weight loss update, I'm still holding strong at 97 pounds lost.  LAST THREE POUNDS, GET OUT OF HERE.  Not that those are my last three pounds ever, but still.  To be able to say that I have legitimately lost 100 pounds would be amazing.  I still can't believe how far I've come. 

One of the requirements you must meet before having surgery is going to a support group.  My bariatric group holds them once a month.  The patients who have already had surgery are encouraged to come and speak in front of the crowd about their progress, their experiences, etc... I don't know if you all are aware, but public speaking is not really my forte.  But this Saturday, that is what I will be doing. So it will be interesting to see how it goes.  I need to prepare a before/after flyer to pass out to everyone with my blog address on it so that they can get a feel for what life is like after gastric bypass.  AHH just talking about it makes me nervous!  Pray for me, people!

Happy Wednesday, friends.
