On Bukhara, Col Cacchio and trying to lose weight..

Ok so I think I've mentioned that I am going to be in my bf's wedding in 2 weeks. And I am attending our bestman's wedding tom! So, in preparation for my bridesmaid duties, I decided to attempt to shed a few kilos. 17 thus far to be exact but still more to go. But can someone please explain to me how to try and lose weight and still have a social life in Cape Town! Last night as it was our anniversary, dh and I went to Bukharas for the first time. Always wanted to try their food as we are curry lovers! But sadly, we were not impressed. Really, it wasnt amazing at all, pretty average actually.

And then today I went to Col Cacchio in Cavendish to have lunch with my mentor. Really great pizza! I even brought one home for my dh as pizza is his absolute favourite take out.

In between all this, studying has to happen as I am writing an exam on Monday and still busy with a ridiculous assignment thats depressing me as I am getting no where with it :(

And to top it all off, I was so tired after going to bed at 4:15am this morning that I didn't get to do my running training today...oh well with have to catch up!

Happy Anniversary to us!

Do you know what today is? Its my la la...My DH and I have been married 4 years today!! And its stilll as great as it was when we first met, actually better. Marriage is great when you're totally inlove with someone who loves you back, respects you, treats you like a queen, supports you in everything you do and you do the same back. And taking the time to get to really know each other, building those solid foundations on God.

Planning to go out for a special dinner tonight, no time for a getaway this month with studies, exams and weddings coming up. Hope for a week-end getaway some time next month.

well, I have to complete an assignment on the worst topic in the whole world before I even to go out tonight!


Here goes...

I'll keep my first post short and sweet. I'm supposed to be completing an assignment but I am the master of work avoidance and procrastination. The dh(darling hubby) is out at a friends stag night...mmm...I wonder how that's going??

We are off to the wedding this Sat. It seems to be wedding season for us. My bf is getting married on 14 Nov. I am going to be a bridesmaid *blush*. Will let you know how that goes...

Right, back to the books. Oh, I've also set my challenge no.1 and am crossing this off my bucket list:

1. Run a 10k race.

If anyone who knows me is reading this, you will know that this monumental in my life as I absolutely suck at running. I'm following the Shape Mag 'run 10km in 12 weeks' programme...
Currently I am running 3min walking 2 min...I really am baffled at the thought that I will someday be able to run more than 3mins which already feels like my heart is going to burst out of my chest! back to the treadmill tom to run 4min walk 2min.

I'll be back if I survive....
