Unfortunately, I do not have much wedding planning news for you right now. My life has been overtaken by the holidays, this cold I'm fighting, and work. However, we HAVE picked a florist. I just can't write about it because I still have to leave our deposit and get the contract. I have a thing against posting about a decision until I have the contract signed and in hand, so that will have to wait for tomorrow or Monday.
As far as my dieting and exercising plan:
I had a total body conditioning session on Tuesday and again today. My arms are really feeling it! I didn't work out on Wednesday...which I am bummed about, but I'm really trying to fight off the cold that Chris has apparently given me, so I do think I should be taking it easy right now. Just doing any cardio this morning was extra difficult with my nose running and constant coughing! On Tuesday I ran a mile after my session and today I walked a mile after my session.
As far as my Weight Watchers points: I fell off the wagon a little bit on Sunday and didn't keep track of my points but I was good Friday, Saturday, and easily got back on track Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Many people may have heard that Weight Watchers recently revamped their entire point system. Now, fruits and veggies are mostly all zero points, but everything else has gone up in points a little bit...including, total points per day! The reasoning behind this is that things like a hundred calorie pack and an apple were both 1 point each, but obviously, it's much healthier to eat the apple. This takes many other factors into account, and is trying to keep its members eating whole, natural foods instead of processed. This is certainly an idea I can get behind! However, because I'm keeping track of points on my own and haven't officially signed up for weight watchers, I'm keeping with the old system. Most resources online still have the old point values and that's all I have to go by for now. Over time as I get a better grasp on the new system, and hear/see positive results from weight watcher users using the new system, I'll switch over to that.

I made the dough for two different kinds of Holiday cookies last night and am baking them either tonight or tomorrow. This is for a holiday party I'm going to on Saturday and I'm just praying I don't eat too many as I'm baking them. I mean, I have to test them out right??
