Day 02 of 90

P90X: Cardio X

Boy! This session definitely proved to me that I was out of shape! I can't believe that I was able to do all these P90X exercises just a couple months ago and now I can barely get through warm-up! But I tried my best to hang with it and was proud of myself that I got through it!

One part I did enjoy was the yoga warm-up. I hope to perfect my form as the weeks go by. All the warrior poses made me sweat like crazy and gave my body the warm-up it deserved. I came across this article about a "Yoga SuperGran" months back and damn can Granny work the poses at 83 years old!If she's not inspiration, I don't know who is! Wouldn't that be crazy to do at that age?

Diet: My diet sucked today. It was another bad day for me. But as the day went on, I tried my best to control my cravings. We were going to have sushi but we didn't! Yay for us!

Breakfast: I actually f-ed up and had a very early breakfast/meal at 1AM this morning. We were at the casino for Mothers' Day and we were there very late. I really wanted to order French Toast because Barona Casino has the best, best, best French Toast I've ever had! But my brother scolded me (Thanks Bro for the Tough Love) and I had a Cobb Salad which was very, very good too. Oh and water.
My real breakfast was at 8AM that morning at the Casino still. (We ended up staying over) And this time I had the French Toast with fresh fruit on the side. I drank a glass of pineapple juice and water.
Lunch: Because of the late night, I ended up having a late lunch after my nap (I don't want to nap at all either) which was more than a cup of white, steamed rice and roast beef from the night before and water.
Dinner: My FH came home and we made Teriaki Chicken Pasta. Ugh, carbs. And I drank water (no more soda)
After Workout Snack: I worked out late this time but I had an apple and a couple glasses of water.

I really need to tweak my diet :P

Window Shopping: Alfred Angelo

My best friend (who is also my FH, [future husband]'s cousin), will be getting married this October. She finally found "the dress" at Alfred Angelo and suggested I check them out as well. I checked out their website and found a few dresses to my liking!

style 2031
I'm really digging the satin sheen with minimal beading detail. I do adore the sweetheart neckline too. I showed this one to my mom (she said she's purchasing my dress for me!) and she loved it as well.

style 2001
I'm not one for a tremendous amount of glam, but if I were to pick something flashy, I'd go with something as classic as lace. The detail of this gown gives it a vintage feel without being overdone

style 2025
I tried on a dress similar to this style at David's Bridal and my initial reaction was "hmm no" but my Mother loved it. She said it showed off my curves (they're not the good kind, trust me! That's why I'm trying to lose it!) and my body resembled Beyonce. Haha. What a compliment! But after I saw the pictures of myself in it, I actually started liking it. It had all the features I was somewhat searching for: Sweetheart top, minimial glam, and the trumpet/mermaid bottom. I'll definetely try this one!

style 2007
Again, I tried one similar to this style but more on the Grecian side. If you view the back detail of this dress, it has a huge, loose bow which I find kind of cute. And again, it has some details of what I'm looking for.

style 802
This one is most like the one I fell in love with at David's Bridal. I actually cried wearing that dress. The one thing I like that's different with this gown is that it has more beading I feel, the right amount of glam, I should say.

style 1149
I don't think I would actually wear this down the isle, but do find it very cute! I kinda get a innocent feel from it. Maybe I'll try it on just to see if I feel differently.

When my mom told me she was going to purchase my dress for me, I wanted to call and make appointments to try some on but I keep getting scared that if I purchase it now, I won't fit into it. But it would be more motivation!
