Days 365 to 371 – 5K’s, 2K’s, Yoga and Running to the Chapel to Get Married
This week was full of little last minute things to do before the wedding. This didn’t mean that I got to skip out exercising. My sister motivated me to go out running with her early in the mornings. It was nice because I got to A. Share some time with her, and B. Talk to her while exercising. I snuck a little meditation yoga at the end of the week for good measure.
During that whole week, I was more stressed out about forgeting something at home, making sure everyone had their hotel info and knew how to get to the church. The day of the wedding was amazing. My sister and I got up at 4am. Not because we set the alarm at that time, but because we just couldn’t sleep any more. It was more of an exciting feeling. We had a nice relaxing breakfast, took our time getting ready (she did my “Adele inspired” chignon bun), I did my make-up and slipped into the dress; which fit perfectly.
The weather was grey and cloudy most of the afternoon and we did have some rain, but that didn’t stop us. I actually adore the rain, so I was thinking “bring on the rain!!!”. I’m sure everyone else was running for cover 🙂 One thing I will always remember about my great grandma was that whenever somebody said “Oh no, it’s raining!”, she would smack them across the head and then said “Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean it’s not a beautiful day!” So true. It was the most beautiful fall day in all of October in my eyes.
I still haven’t taken my “after” pictures, but I will soon…very soon. I’m just a bit sicky poo right now.
This is not a complete goodbye, more of a see you later everyone.
I’ll post my “after” pictures and most likely keep coming back to blog once in a while to keep me motivated.
I don’t intend on doing a 365 days count down (in my case 371 days), just a journal entry whenever I need to share info, vent, or simply write down an experience.
For now, just enjoying being married to the man of my dreams.
