OL Tuesday

Dear Knot,

How did a family RSVP to our wedding via theknot.com when I don't have anything set up for that?  Weird!

-Confused Knottie

Dear Weight,

Keep Coming Off!  I'm pretty proud of my 4.5 pounds in just over a week.

    Bridget -

    Stopped eating out altogether is the main change. I now eat healthy small meals while I'm at work (such as grapes & cottage cheese, turkey and cheese roll ups with no bread, etc.) grilled lean meat and steamed veggies for dinner, and LOTS of water  I also stepped up my workouts from 4 days a week to 6 days...that sounds like a lot but I incorporated Yoga and Pilates (on what would have been my rest days) so they aren't super high intensity.

    good for you!!! you will look awesome by your wedding....
    i'm just feeling blah! i have 10 lbs to lose and i can't change anything in my diet cause i already eat perfect (except for my one lunch on saturday at chick-fil-a)... i'm trying to bump up my workout, but every time i do i get sick... kinda feeling poopy about the whole thing - my body hasn't gotten the message that i'm not back down to my normal weight!!! i have noticed i have lost some body fat even though i haven't lost weight, so that is a start - just frustrated! ... but keep up the good work!!!!

    Dear self,
    It would be amazing if you could stop picking at your fingernails.  Your nails look like crap.

    Dear Steve,
    I hope you're not mad at me for contacting a travel agent but I'm tired of waiting to see if you'll talk to me about trips and so I decided to get expert opinions.  We haven't gone anywhere since our wedding and I'm tired of not going on vacation.  We deserve it.  Let's just book a dang trip.
    -me

    Dear Knotties,
    Anyone know of good beaches that are affordable (talking $2000 give or take a few hundred dollars for 4 night stay)?  I've been looking into Montego Bay and Puerto Vallarta but some other ideas would be great if you have any.

    Mariah,
    Playa del Carmen has quite a few places in that price range.

    Ok self,  You will start P90X on May 1.  That'll put you ending right around the time your dress comes in.  Go buy all the accessories you'll need this week so you have no excuses!!!  You ate way too much candy at Hershey and now have even more weight to lose!

    Mariah,
    Check out Costco Travel online for all-inclusive packages to Cancun or Riviera Maya (or similar locations in Mexico).  I just plugged in a 4 night stay in May (including a weekend) and most of the prices were about $2000 including airfare.  If there's something you like and it sounds like a good deal, just tack on $50 for a Costco membership.  We used Costco Travel for our honeymoon to Cancun because I was sick of waiting for Jordan to plan something, and I wanted something that was easy to arrange.  Good luck!

    Dear Tiffany,
    You are doing pretty much what I did to lose weight for my wedding.  Thank you for reminding me what I need to do -- since I gained all the weight I Iost back.  :(

    Dear Mariah,
    I am feeling the same as you--if we don't go somewhere in June for vacation I'll go crazy.  I'm looking at Destin, FL right now (since my passport has my old name, we have to stay in the U.S.).

    Stephie,

    Yes, you told me about your healthy snacks not too long ago and I'm using a lot of them! :) Good Luck losing it again!   I think the hardest part for me is planning and making sure that I have everything at home that I need to create the healthy meals.

    Dear Lady at our Admin. Offices,
    You are extremely discourteous and I hope you get in trouble for your behavior over the years at some point.  Your job is to help us not be a jerk.

    Signed,
    Me

    Dear District Offices,
    Why do you have the Family/Medical Leave act with one person in one office and the Sick Bank with a different person in another office?  Your organization (or lack there of) confuses me and adds stress to anyone who has to be gone when they are sick.

    Signed,
    Me again

    Dear Paycheck,
    You are unusually small this month since I was out for a good portion of the month.  I'm sorry but I hope to get you back soon if I get approved for the sick bank.

    Signed,
    Me, one more time

    Dear Gastroenterologist,
    Please find two more days for me to be gone so that I can apply for the sick bank.

    Signed,
    Your favorite patient

    bsn1752, LOL!

    Mariah, definitely check out CheapCarribean.com  We scored our trip to Puerto Rico for so cheap last year.

    Are you looking for an all inclusive?  For something a little off the beaten path, but for the most gorgeous, jelly-fish, sea weed-free, feels like running your feet through a foot of baking four, beach, google Tulum.  There are lots of properties that have romantic private cabanas, just as something different than a huge resort feel.

    Mariah,

    I agree with Donna and Alana. Stick with those resources and you're bound to find some great deals. I'm not a fan of Jamaica at all, but won't discourage you; I've had 2 horror stories and woldn't recommend, but those were separate situations. I think you'll be very happy with Playa del Carmen. It's secluded, there are a ton of things to do, and you're not in the middle of crazy Cancun. Definitely a great place to relax. Let me know if you have any questions. We've been going there for years and went on our honeymoon there.

    Good luck,

    Em

    Dear Jeff,

    Thanks for letting me buy the diaper bag I really wanted. You have no idea how excited I am about it...

    Your wife

    Dear weather,

    I wish I could enjoy you. I really need you to be about 10 degrees cooler, though. My 30 week preggo self just can't deal.

    Dear Knotties,
    Thanks for the suggestions!  Actually, I'm finding really good deals that are about the same as what a travel agent I'm working with is giving me.  So I feel like if we do decide to go on a trip we may just book with her because there's pretty much no difference in price.  We're checking out Puerto Vallarta.  Any experiences there?

    LOVE Puerto Vallarta. There is an elegance about it that you can't find in other parts of Mexico.

    We stopped Puerto Vallarta on a cruise once, but I can't remember doing anything other then some shopping.  The water was gorgeous!
