    But yes... as Jane and Tracey have so cryptically hinted, I am more than OK... I got engaged last night!
    Congratulations (took you long enough )

    Thanks Bytsi!
    Not yet... I'm going home to NY next weekend to check out venues and hopefully pick something. I'm already a tad overwhelmed... doesn't help that we have a pretty short timeline... about 6 months or so. But where there's a will, there's a way, right?

    So let's see if I can get the ring picture to upload... it's much better in person (isn't that always the case?) but this will do.. it's the same one I put on facebook:

    Time for a stronger Mermaid!

    Oh yeah, and I DID make it to the gym today
    From memory since my log isn't in front of me:
    A - Plank with feet elevated:
    60sec
    60sec
    45sec
    B- Side plank with feet elevated:
    45 sec
    45 sec
    C1- 1-leg DB RDLs:
    12x25s
    12x25s
    12x25s
    *form was really wobbly today...
    C2- Lat pulldown:
    12x65
    12x55
    10x55
    *forearms were spasming (of all things!)
    D1: Goblet squats:
    12x35DB
    D2: Cable external rotation:
    8x5lbs
    *hard as hell...
    HIIT:
    6 rounds on the dreadmill... 60s:60s of 3.5 then 7.5
    Was going to do 10 rounds, but somebody either brought in buffalo wings and was eating them right near the cardio stuff, or someone puked up buffalo wings... not sure which, but the smell was horrible and I was like "hell, I'm outta here" lol!

    And now for more venue research....

    I'm looking forward to the inevitably crazy workout plan and fitness goals that an already fit bride-to-be is going to implement! Should make for some good log reading

    Time for a stronger Mermaid!

    planning is going well, although it's kind of taken over my life! I took some time off from the gym actually and was pretty consumed with finding and interviewing venues, photographers, and DJs. But now that we have a venue, a date, and officiant, a DJ, and a photographer all booked, it's mostly details from here (and dress shopping of course!) So I got my flabby butt back to the gym yesterday and plan to go tomorrow morning. I'm not going to go too crazy, but I do have a vacation in less than a month and then the wedding only 4 months after that... so I have to be consistent at least! September 25 will be here before we know it!

    Awesome - I know how long this stuff can take to plan so it's great that you got those major items done so (relatively) quickly! Glad to see you stepped right back in the gym, too

    I can't wait to see the dress you pick!

    I can't either Bytsi! lol
    I went yesterday... so far in total I've been to 4 shops (2 in NY, 2 in VA) and tried on a boatload of dresses... and still haven't found anything that really did anything for me. I have an idea of what I'm looking for, but apparently I'm having a hard time finding it. It's actually becoming a bit frustrating. When I do find it I will probably post a pic in here... Bri never goes on this forum anymore anyway.

    I went to the gym Wednesday and Friday so I also plan to go today. Then Bri and I are going suit shopping and possibly attempting to figure out registry stuff. For only being engaged a month, we've gotten a lot done, which is good. I think I'm one of those people who work a bit better under pressure, so our short time-frame is actually probably a good thing

    Hey, i just had to stop by to say "congrats!!!" Happy for 'yah.
    I can't even imagine what a nightmare it is not to be able to find a dress you like...lots of luck with it, you'll need it all!

    Hi everybody!
    So yeah - since the wedding was planned start to finish in a little less than 6 months, the gym unfortunately got put on the back burner and I pretty much hadn't gone since, um... June? Oops! But I seem to fairly blessed with the genes I have since, although I lost a boatload of muscle, I didn't gain any weight. I'm weak now, which sucks, but now that the wedding is over and life is returning to normal, I am starting to get back into the swing of things. I went back tot he gym for the first time today!

    And since I know the ladies are going to ask for pics.. here are two of my favorites:



    Will come back to post workout and other random updated later. Hope to be back for good this time!!
