Family visit, wedding, fitness, and hunger

I’m alive!!! I went completely MIA this weekend because my parents came to visit and we went to a family wedding three hours east of Dallas. It was in a little small town where I had very little cellphone service. Best I could so was send test messages if I was in the right spot.

Wedding was fun, I’m down a couple hundred bucks, and I wish the best for my third cousin and her husband. The weekend did not start out so great. My parents and I got into a tiff when they were driving to Dallas over directions, but things normalized Saturday morning.

I got a mani with my mom to get ready for the wedding. And I realized that I hate a french manicure. I actually think I have very pretty natural nails, and a french manicure just makes them seem so fake!

I learned something very important from this wedding. First, people need to put what attire is considered acceptable on their wedding invitations. I ended up wearing a very pretty long dress since I thought it was a wedding, especially a Mexican wedding. But, I was completely over dressed for the party. I wonder if I’m ever going to be appropriately dressed for a party?

I got pulled over by a cop for the first time in the small little town. I was really calm and nice to the officer, and was really nice to me (very friendly cop, usually they are so uptight). Apparently, I didn’t have my headlights on. My lights in my car aren’t automatic, which means I have to turn them on at night. They require two clicks, and apparently I only clicked once. Thankfully, I only received a warning!!!

I completed my five workouts last week, which marks week 4 a success!!! I’m at 119 pounds. I have also given up a majority of the carbs I used to eat which is making me extremely tired and hungry all the time!  I’m noticing more definition, but I still have a long way to go. The workouts always kill me every week. I, also, didn’t sleep a lot this weekend. I think I got about eight hours of sleep total this weekend. I have been trying to stay awake the entire morning at work, and really wish I had snacks or chocolates to munch on.

So, there’s the recap of my weekend. What did you do?

  1. Nice job on the weight loss!!! Glad you got let off with a warning. It seems they don’t usually give tickets for things like that but getting pulled over is nerve-wracking. Sounds like a nice weekend. Better over dressed than under!

  2. Automatic lights? Say what?

    I have only been to one wedding but am inclined to agree that dress code is tricky. I probably haven’t been great about mine – ours will be really low key and I honestly don’t mind, short of shorts/jeans. My exact words on our wedding site: if you want to get dressed up to the nines you can but ther is no requirement. LOL.

    • LOL Most Mexican weddings that I have been to, dressing up is a requirement.
      When we had our wedding, our party was pretty low key. Everyone wore jeans except for the immediate family who wanted to look good in the photos 🙂
