    1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on my bi-yearly car insurance payment and renter’s insurance. The total was $397, $330 of which was the car insurance I pay twice a year, and the renter’s insurance was just $66 for the year. I had saved this, so it wasn’t a big deal, but

    After weeks of reporting inactivity on the bridal bootcamp front, I’m happy to announce the charts are baaaaack! :) My (soon to be) mother-in-law signed up my (soon to be) sister-in-law and me for six weeks of personal training.

  • Bridal Bootcamp Update

    My new favorite loves: 1. A free gym at my apartment complex (I say free, but let’s be honest, we all know it’s a hidden cost in my rent) 2. My Fitness app on my phone (that calculates 1,200 calories per day) 3. The new carpeted apartment (where I can do push-ups and crunches much
