Beautiful thing in the mail...


...so today started very wonderfully as I received Mahrin and Tawheed's wedding invitation in the mail. Ah, absolutely beautiful cards--you can see from the picture. Can't wait for the event which leads me to next order of business. I have actually started going to the gym regularly after going on a 2-month hiatus and knowing that there's a snazzy wedding to attend in November, I have all the more reasons to. I hope I stick through because this whole not-having-a-job-yet thing doesn't exactly flood me with undying enthusiasm everyday. I must throw in a little fyi that I have been contacted by a few places over the last month but don't want to mention any names here until something is a sure thing. I did mention earlier that the thing that gets me off their list is me being a future-sponsorship-requiring individual. Anyways, so back to my starting over a new-leaf-in terms-of-health---I went to Wal-Mart with my one and only lovely Gowri today and we brought a lot of stuff (food-wise) to start off our 'healthy' schedule. That girl is in perfect shape and is gifted with a speedy metabolism (knock on wood) but I am not one of those girls who has angst against thin people adopting a healthy lifestyle. I think everyone, thin or fat, should try to maintain healthy ways. So anyways, we got a whole bunch of fruits from peaches (lurvee peaches) to apples to plums, etc. I also bought the Special K vanilla almond flavor..mmm. The last time I had a visible reduction of weight was back in the fall of 2003. I did some crazy stuff like running 10 laps everyday on the track plus cardio, eating cereal and cucumber salad, etc. The results were amazing though and I felt so good. Lately, I have been feeling so sluggish. So ya'll wondering where this new found enthusiasm suddenly came from? Besides the dreamy wedding that I have to attend in November..Ugh..I stepped on a scale. Really high numbers I tell you, really high. I am planning to plaster my walls with friendly reminders such as 'Forget about that quart of vanilla icecream sitting in the refrig.' Jimminy cricket! it is time to sleep

Stepping on the scale is half the battle won :)

ooh the invite came out nice in the pictures! I should follow what you're doing and eat healthy - the problem is that I started being roja again and pig out after iftaar. :( I'll have to double time after Eid.
