49 Days to Go!

It’s 49 days to go ’til the big day. There are still some minor and a couple of major things we have to accomplish. I’m still not too worried yet (I’m not sure when I would be), but there are some pressing matters that we have to attend to IMMEDIATELY.

On top of everything, I will have to intensify my training and if possible come into the gym 5-6 days a week from now. Weight training is still of primary importance to me, but I have to make sure that I am also doing lots and lots of cardio. The hardest thing is to eat clean. EATING CLEAN, during the holiday season is IMPOSSIBLE. I will have to try my best to filter out what I eat whenever we go out with friends too. I think I have to follow a strict “21-days to break a bad habit” approach on this one.

I think I also need to do yoga again. My sleeping pattern is weird again.

Please please please wish me luck.

Our wedding cord is done!

The Motivated Bride - Wedding Cord by Project Dream Wedding

I wanted a wedding cord done because it could serve as an heirloom piece for our kids in the future. So I was really excited to have found Eyzel of Project Dream Wedding. She’s really sought after at the w@w forums because her designs are uber cool and unique!

I had no idea in mind yet how it will look like, but she asked for our wedding colors and based the design on our old wedsite. So she came up with this:

I love that it’s very contemporary and the yellow beads/crystals are sunny and happy! Can’t wait to see it in person. Still have to pay for our balance so she can have it shipped. 🙂
