Time is getting away from me…..

I am sorry it has been so long. Life has been hectic to say the least. I will at least commit to coming on here and telling you about my past week, because as of now the work week just doesn’t seem possible for blogging. This is a good thing considering I like to be busy.

Wedding update: we have picked our wedding colors. Pink and Green, after careful thought I decided to go with two of my favorite colors. It helps Jason loves green as well. We are going to go to some locations for venues today I will make sure to take pictures and update you all. I also want to have record of this so when I think back I can see what I was thinking/feeling when I looked at these places.

Headache update: I am seeing an acupuncturist today to help with these relentless headaches. I have also started relaxing more about the weight loss, I feel that the headaches are brought on by stress so being as stress-free as possible is a huge goal for me.

Workout update: I am still on my little break from training but Half-Ironman training starts up next week. I am really excited to be working with 2 amazing coaches. Having personally catered training will be great. Get ready for the super fit Aly 🙂

I love you guys but I need an assistant to come on here daily to update. For now I will have to come when I can and give you little updates. Enjoy the sun wherever you are.

A photo look at Hawaii

April 14, 2011


I wasn’t going to write a blog today about how I was feeling last night. I just wanted to let it all be happy butterflies and kittens dancing in the grass. Life doesn’t work that way. Last night I was uploading photo’s from my amazing Hawaiian engagement/triathlon trip. As the uploads completed my thoughts started to swim. I was so excited about the trip and how amazing everything was, but I was also not happy with my body. I tried to block out the feelings and remember I have come a long way, losing over 25 pounds, but all I could think about was the 15-20 I want to lose before the wedding. I was telling myself, you are going to be a beautiful bride no matter what don’t look at the negative just focus on the positive. This was a struggle. After shedding a few tears I took a bath and let my feelings drain away in the tub. I kissed my loving fiance last night and told him no matter what we are both going to look amazing at the wedding.

No matter what my weight or size I am going to glow like the bride to be that I am. I am going to continue to work on weight loss and mainly toning my body for me. I am going to focus on just feeling good about myself and the confidence, not the number lost or the inches.

I checked the scale this morning and saw that I only gained 1.2 pounds from my 10 day vacation. This is a huge win and I plan to take it and run with it. Life is a series of events that we have to learn and  grow upon.

I want to love life to the fullest and soak in all the happiness, there will be sad moments at times but the happy ones always subside them.

Feeling it

I guess there are a million reasons why I am feeling it right now. I am just high on everything that has been going on.

I had an amazing Hawaiian vacation that included a challenging and rewarding triathlon and an amazing proposal, that has me back as a lovely bride to be. I am back and just soaking up this pre-wedding love. I am so excited about venues, colors, fashion my head is spinning with the love of all of this. I will be discussing so much going on I just wanted to preface everyone. I will have a race re-cap with some pics as soon as I get some time to sit and the initial wedding buzz dies down. I love you all and I hope you are ready for some awesome wedding fun! This blog just got krazier.

I hope your feeling it too 😉
