Day 94

I cannot believe I am getting married 1 week from today!!!!!! Craziness! Morning weigh-in: 134.0. I woke up early and went to the gym. I did some lower body weight lifting. I am still not 100%.

Off to my last 12 hour shift before the wedding....

BF: Cheerios (145)....more to come...

Day 93

Morning weigh-in: 134.2. Nice fluctuation huh? Well I did eat like a maniac yesterday. This will probably go down by tomorrow.

BF: Cheerios (145), Lunch: Zone bar (190), Dinner: pasta and sauce (300), 3 large slices of ice cream cake...prob 1000+, who knows?

I am still feeling a little sick. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow. My goal is to workout before my 12 hour shift, maybe do legs. It will depend on how sick I feel in the morning.

I woke up sick and called out sick from work. Being sick sucks but at least I will be able to get a few things done, such as table seating.

Another Crazy Catch-up

Ok, I have be MIA! Here's the short of it...

Day 86

I worked a 12 hour shift in preparation for a really fun weekend ahead. I can honestly say that I don't remember what I ate all day. My knee was really bothering me in the morning so I didn't workout. I ate a bunch of cookies right before bed. I stayed up really late to pack for the weekend.

Day 87

Morning weigh-in: 135.4. I got up and ran a bunch of errands before I headed to South Florida. My knee was killing me once again so I decided to let it heal and not workout. I picked up two wonderful friends from the airport (who came all the way from Texas and New York for my bridal shower). We spent most of the day at the mall and then went out to dinner, which was really fun but I ate like crazy.

BF: Cheerios, Snack: Zone bar, Lunch: 1/4 of a sub, 2 pieces of a California roll, Dinner: New York strip steak, baked potato, salad, piece of bread and butter, few glasses of wine.

Day 88

My Bridal Shower! And Bach Party!!! Ok, I had a GREAT day. I woke up and had a small workout. I ran 1/4 mile, did some weights, ran another 1/4 and did a few circuits. I had a wonderful time at my shower, even though I ate LOTS of food...steak, salmon, caesar salad, fruit, cake, more cake, cookies, etc. Later I went to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, where my friends got a room and decorated it wonderfully. We had a blast...we danced till 6am. I slept from 7-10 and woke up for the check-out.

Day 89

At 6am, after all the dancing, I ate a fatty smothered chicken sandwich and fries. It really made me lose my appetite for the day. Especially since I drank so much alcohol. I had 1/2 smoked turkey and cheddar wrap for lunch. For dinner I nibbled on some desserts left over from the shower and a small sandwich. I also had a few bites of pasta.

Day 90

I weighed-in at 132.4!!!!!!!! I almost died on the spot. But then again I was severely dehydrated from the weekend. I pretty much ate whatever I wanted for the rest of the day, including a huge bagel and cream cheese for breakfast. I had some amazing pasta for dinner that Frankie made and about 400 calories worth of cookies.

Day 91

Morning weigh-in: 135.3. Ok, back to normal. But then again I do have my period. I went to South Florida AGAIN today for a few appointments. Last night I got 4 hours of sleep and I woke up with a sore throat. All this craziness is catching up with me.

BF: Zone bar, Snack: piece of chocolate, Lunch: small sandwich, Dinner: really big sandwich, 1 1/2 slices of my mom's "Krem Snjita" (cream slices), a piece of some other kind of dessert.

I am hoping I am not too sick for work tomorrow. I really need to get back into the workout scene. My goal is to get in 3 good weight lifting workouts before the wedding, at least 1 Shred and run a few miles. I also wanna get some push-ups in. I can't believe I only have 9 more days!!!!

Oh, by the way, I had my final dress fitting today. The dress looked AWESOME!!!! I was so happy with it. The bad news: It was a LOT tighter 2 weeks ago. If I lose 1 more pound it will be too big. I wanted the lady to take it in a little more at the waist but she didn't feel it was the right thing to do. Now I can't lose any more weight, which actually upset me earlier. I wish the dress was tighter. We'll see how it goes.

Day 85

I think I am gonna get back at it. I weighed-in at 136.1 this morning. This was an expected gain. Ideally I would be between 134 and 135 on my wedding day but we'll see. I woke up and went straight to the gym. My knee is bothering me but I figured it is not an excuse to skip upper-body. While I was working out, some guy at the gym (one of the regulars) looked at me and said, "Man, when did you get guns?" It felt pretty good. Too bad my "guns" only stand out when I lift.

Well, off to a 12 hour shift....

Major Catch-up

Ok, I have been slacking on the posts but then again my wedding is in 16 days and I have a million things to do!

Lets see....

First of all, thank you to everyone who posted comments on my previous post (and all the ones before that for that matter). Your support means more to me than you could know. You have really kept me motivated and I realllllllly appreciate it!

Day 82

Sunday we went to a post-wedding brunch and I pretty much nibbled on whatever I wanted all day, I didn't workout.

Day 83

Frankie and I ran errands all day long. We got our marriage liscence, hiking shoes for our honeymoon, and picked out the tuxedo accessories for the guys (I know, we waited till last minute). We ate Chinese food for dinner and again, I didn't workout.

Day 84

I went to south Florida again. This time to finalize things with the florist. The centerpieces turned out gorgeous! I am really excited about them. I ate my usual BF (Cheerios), 1/2 sandwich and frozen yogurt for lunch, snacked on some potato salad, pork and a slice of bread at my parents' house, had a slice of bread with Nutella, and for dinner I had 3 slices of wheat bread with some turkey kielbasa. Not the best, but I have been worse. I didn't workout.

Sunday, March 1, 2009


The wedding was wonderful! We had such a good time. Not only that, but the whole thing calmed my nerves about our own wedding. I'm so glad my cousin's was before ours!

The day started out great. I did the Shred level 2 and ran some errands. I was late as usual so I had to skip breakfast. Little did I know that this would mean not eating a single thing until the cocktail hour at 6pm! At the cocktail hour I had a mini burger, a few spring rolls and a crab cake. I had some white wine as well. For dinner we had a mozzerella, tomato and vegetable salad, a lobster tail, a piece of filet and some kinda of potato patty. I also had bread and butter. For dessert we had wedding cake, which was strawberry, and a bunch of goodies from the dessert table. I had about 2 chocolate chip cookies, a brownie, a chocolate covered strawberry and about 3 of these chocolate rasberry bite size mousse things. Yummy. I also had a few whiskey sours, champaign and who knows what else. So lets just say I made up for the day's lack of AM eating. Oh well, weddings don't happen everyday.
