Bridesmaids dress shopping and goal setting

What a weekend! I finally made it to CrossFit on Friday during the day, after having a productive morning cleaning bathrooms and the kitchen floors! I ran out of time to do much more. I had a horrible Friday at work. I’m really burnt out from work, school, and wedding planning. I felt frustrated and overwhelmed the whole time. Mostly overwhelmed with frustration for the stupidity of some coworkers.

Saturday I had big plans of waking up and running with Jon, but instead I slept in until 11 and then went bridesmaid dress shopping! Crista, Laura, and Gina came since my sister lives in Wisconsin and Kassie was at a cabin over the weekend. We had a successful trip!


Me, Laura, Gina, Crista.

We decided on the dress fairly easily and then decided to go eat lunch together at Fresh2Order. I feel like I’ve had that place way too much lately but I love their chicken.




After lunch, Crista and I headed out to Home Goods to get a shower curtain rod. I found a new table for the living room so I was super excited and a new quilt for the guest bedroom! I’m not positive that I totally love the quilt, but it’ll match gray walls and it was only $35, so I’m calling it a win.

Saturday night, Jon and I went out to Bottle Rocket for a double date with Alex and his wife, Crystal. We deployed with Alex, although I think he was at a different base than us so I didn’t know him that well. I really only know him from lunch on drill weekends. It was a good time, however it really made me feel like we need to be saving money (especially after buying new house stuff earlier in the day!).

Maybe it’s just me, but I definitely miss the days of Jon working full time and being able to spend money on whatever we wanted! Actually, I’m pretty sure Jon feels the same way. Sacrifices.

Today I had to work form 11-7. I’m thankful for a really good day at work! After my day on Friday, I felt totally burnt out just walking in the door. I just got home and Jon is at a Super Bowl party. He invited me, but I think I’m just going to shower and relax instead. Tomorrow is back to schoolwork all the time.

I think tonight I’m going to work on setting some goals for February. I want to start running 4 times a week. Probably 3-4 mile runs with one longer run on the weekend or my day off. For most of the month, I work Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I’d really like to stick to CrossFit twice a week and then I want to try and go to LA Fitness twice a week. I want to try and get into yoga as one of my LA Fitness days (I’m going to my first yoga class this weekend with Gina at the LA Fitness downtown) and maybe doing Body Pump on Saturday mornings and doing a run after. Since this month seems a little slower as far as work goes, I’m really hoping that it’ll work out. I know I set goals a lot and then I ignore them 4 days into setting the goals, but I need to get in shape for this Gate River Run next month!

Okay, I think I might shower and relax for a bit. I should get back on track with schoolwork, but I don’t think I’m going to tonight.

  1. Good luck with the fitness goals! That’s a LOT of stuff to do but you can definitely do it, especially the shorter runs. A lot of times when I went to CrossFit, people would run a bit before or after and just do it all there at the box (ours had a few treadmills and also it was safe to run outside). Plus if you’re at the gym sometimes you can get one in, especially a 3-4 miler. Glad you guys got a dress quickly!

    • Luckily, I live right near the gym so if I drive the mile or two back, and I can just to my run directly after! I need to get in the habit of doing it and not walking inside and getting lazy.
