To the marriage of two of our very good friends. This was one of Jeremiah’s best friends growing up, and the only one who lives anywhere close(ish) to us. His fiance (wife today!!) is the nicest girl I could imagine, and they are perfect for each other. Even better, they adore Matthew. He really treats Matthew more like his nephew, than his friend’s child. It makes me so happy to see them interact with him like family, and they are our family.
Jeremiah will be a groomsman, Matthew the ring bearer. I am nervous, but excited. I know that even if he doesn’t do things perfectly, everybody is just going to think he’s ridiculously cute. He looks adorable in his little fancy pants and vest, with the tiny little tie. Of course, Jeremiah looks really sexy in his fancy pants, vest and tie.
I can’t wait. You better bet I will have lots of pictures. Most of them will be private if they show any part of the wedding party, but I will still try to post a picture or two of Matthew himself. Yes, I am wearing a dress, and no, you will probably not get to see that.
I have been trying really hard the past few months to get in shape and try to lose weight, or at least fat. So far I’ve built a ton of muscle, which leaves me at the same weight, but I’m in much better shape than I was, say, six months ago. Muscle weighs more than fat, so I just have to keep telling myself that for the amount of muscle I’ve gained, to not have gained ANY weight, I’ve had to have lost a bit of fat. I see a difference in my body, but it’s hard to feel good when our culture has trained us to live by the numbers on the scale.
This last week, I worked out 6 days in a row. Monday I did my at home work out, Tuesday was Body Pump, Wednesday I went to the gym and worked out on the Arc Trainer, then the Treadmill, Thursday was Body Pump, Friday I did the Arc Trainer, Treadmill and Bike, and Saturday was the same as Friday. Today is Sunday, and it’s my day off!
Tomorrow I will probably go to the gym in the morning, then it’s off to San Antonio for the week. Next Saturday (6 days from now) we’re going to the wedding of Jeremiah’s best friend, where Matthew is going to be the ring-bearer. I’m excited but I’m so nervous that Matthew won’t behave. I’ll just have to wait and see I suppose. Usually when I go to SA, I don’t work out and end up feeling like crap about myself. Well I finally did my research, found out there’s a YMCA right by my sister’s house that I can go to. Yay! That means I’ll only miss about 2 days of workouts (because of the wedding stuff & working at the church) instead of 6 or 7. Yay!
