Slim Down Team Work!

Any brides who want to team up and help each other slim down for their gown with me? I don't have social media, there aren't a lot of gym classes near me and I'm having trouble staying motivated on my own to lose the last 30 pounds before my December wedding!

    Umm neither lol hes black and white and I wanted a fall or gothic name so cinder likes cinders from a fire. Fizzgig comes from the movie Dark Crystal though and Belas full name is Bela Lugosi which is the name of the actor who played Dracula in the original black and white Dracula movie.

    No worries it was a good guess! Honestly his is the most normal name of the bunch. I get great joy watching people try to figure out where I got the names for the other 2

    Do you have a plan ready for next week as far as meals and exercise goes? I'm going to the gym on Monday morning, Tuesday evening, and Saturday morning. I'll do my salads for lunches but I'm still figuring out dinner plans. I'm thinking one pot meals or crockpot meals.

    Well Monday we have our get together with friends. I typically do fruit for breakfast this week I have clementines grapes and blueberries. I usually do yogurt for lunch so thats pretty easy. I normally plan my dinners the day before. As far as exercise Tuesday after work I will be going to a friends house and helping build Halloween decorations so not really exercise but up and moving then Wednesday through Friday Im hoping to do a walk each day and work on a project for either the wedding or the house.

    I do like my crock pot meals though. If theres any turkey chili after our get together with friends tomorrow Ill do that for a day or two this week. I am just not sure how many people will be there or how much they will eat. So most Saturdays we have a group that we play games with and this week we bumped our get together to Monday since its Labor day. Well they decided to do a competition so theres all sorts of events and one of the events is a food one. Best food with the most creative name wins. I was basically told by the guy hosting the games/judging that he and everyone else expects me to win the food one (no pressure or anything). The rules are you can enter as many dishes as you want but you have to make it at home and have a creative name to go with it. So the 3 recipes Im taking are 3 that Ive not taken to anything with this group before. The pumpkin bread turned out pretty good, the avalanche bark turned out so so (chocolate seized up on me so I more have a gravel than a bark) and the chili should turn out great. I have it in the crock pot now, its always better the second day lol. I just dont know if we will have the "normal " Saturday group or of some of the people from the Friday groups will come and sometimes some of his family comes. There is going to be a "secret" judge though.

    I get paid to go to school since I'm a veteran, but I have a lot of reading to get done for nursing school.

    He was named Grey Storm by a bunch of hippies, or so I was told by the shelter. I tried to rename him Gandalf but he didn't take to it.

    Theres worse than that could need to be done than reading although that could be boring sometimes.

    It was productive but I missed the gym. I had a lot of reading left for class tomorrow and prioritized that over the gym. Not good. I should've just gotten up earlier! I have to be at class early tomorrow so we can review our project and then I'm getting my second COVID shot that afternoon. With a 3 hour round trip to and from class, not a whole lot of spare time. Hope your day went well!

    It went alright. Ate more than I should have but not as much as I wanted. That sucks that you didnt get to the gym. While I like driving I dont miss doing those drives everyday.

    Any luck making it to the gym today? We didnt get our walk in because I forgot I had to meet up with someone to go over taking care of their cats next week.
