There are exactly eight weeks and two days until my sister-in-law's wedding. In which I am a bridesmaid. Standing next to a bridesmaid who is a size 4 (if I didn't like said bridesmaid I would curse her right now). I'm not going to give away my size (did anyone really think I would?) but I'm definitely not a 4.

So what am I doing over the next eight weeks and two days? I'm going to start running again. I'm actually going to do the Couch-to-5K Running Plan. Nine weeks and I should be running three miles. And seeing as how I have no gym membership, running is the cheapest (FREE!) way to lose some weight.

I'm not looking to lose so much that I have to have my dress altered (I swear I don't want you stressing about that right before the wedding, mom!), but I'm seriously at the point where I hate how I look in some of my clothes so I guess I should do something about it.

Not to mention hubby and I are currently looking at a vacation (as early as right after the wedding) and there's a certain warm climate with beaches that's definitely an option. I can't go there and NOT wear a swimsuit!

So I'll update every once in a while on how the weight-loss/running is going. Maybe I'll even do the run for breast cancer this year instead of the walk. Hear me mom? We may be signing up for the run!

I'm sure your mom will be thrilled to hear that, ha ha.

BTW: "Empire"? The hell is that? I thought I at least knew of all of OSC's books, but I don't believe I've ever seen that title. Really new or really old?

boom. i plan on running too! haha i had intentions of starting over here, but it's really hilly where we live - and it would have been way intense. so i'm waiting until i get to the flat central valley to run :P
