Holy Shred!

...and Happy Valentine's Day.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your love. Phillip and I had a very nice low key day. I woke up before him (which has been the norm this weekend), made his Valentine's Day card and when he woke up I was playing Super Mario Bros on the Wii. Love that game! We just got the game on Friday and have had a ton of fun with it.

We then hung out and watched HGTV together--we both get sucked into the shows. We love to share our thoughts on the homes and just see how other people live and what other people like, it is amazing how individualized decorating taste is. We decided today that we are going to retire in the Caribbean. It came up while watching HGTV--Phillip was actually the one who brought up the idea (like I'd say no) and I jumped right on board. I am going to look at some homes and stuff in the Caribbean so we can get an idea of how much we will need to put away to enjoy spending our retired life together. The only thing we need to make sure is that the country we pick allows animals to be brought into the country, because it is obvious that we will have pets...always. :)

We then laid a workout bet on the line (more on that in a minute), headed to Moe's for Phillip's final hurrah of a Billy. After enjoying lunch we then headed to Sports Authority where Phillip bought new golf gloves and a new golf towel, then to the driving range. Meghan (my GVille BFF) swung by the range because Phillip and I spoiled her and baby Emma (she is 20 weeks preggo) while we were in Saint Augustine yesterday. We got her a caramel, chocolate and nut covered apple, a bag of war heads and a baby shoe charm for her Pandora bracelet and then we got Emma 5 newborn onesies; 2 3-6 month onesies, one says Smiles are Free and the other has glitter covered ballet slippers on it (Meghan was a ballerina so clearly appreciated this); then we got a 3-6 month long sleeve green onesie that says Snow much fun and has a picture of little elephants decorating a Christmas tree; and the last thing we got her was a 3-6 month long sleeve onesie with a gingerbread men on it as well as red matching pants with little gingerbread men around the cuffs. Meghan was very appreciative and thankful for all the presents--honestly though, Phillip and I had so much fun at Oshkosh and Carter's yesterday! He is going to be such a phenomenal Daddy, I am so lucky!

Anyways, we then headed to Target so I could buy some free weights and get a Jillian Michael's DVD--hence the Holy Shred! I got the 30 day Jillian Michael's DVD and did the first workout. I didn't think the beginner one was going to be that hard but holy crap! I had considered buying the 8# weights at Target and thank God Phillip talked me into the 5#. It was nuts. I love a good workout and it was definitely a great workout. I am scared to go to sleep and wake up tomorrow because I am going to be ridiculously sore...ouch! It will all be worth it when I win the bet. :)

Anyways, as far as the bet. We obviously want to be our skinniest and hottest on our wedding day so we have a workout inspiration bet going. Phillip wants to get down to his wedding goal weight (215#) and I had originally said my goal would be to get down to 120# but Phillip thinks that is too small, so we decided I would get down to 125# and tone. Anyways, whoever gets to their goal first wins. Well Phillip just has to get there and I have to get there and STAY there for a month before I win. Obviously 125# is only 3-4# smaller then I am now, so that is why I have to get there and be toned to win. So...what's on the line--a new outfit. If Phillip wins, I have to buy him a new outfit and if I win Phillip will have to buy me a new bikini (hopefully I can talk my wonderful Mommy into buying me a few new outfits :)). That's the bet, any tips you guys have would be fantastic. :) Thanks!!

Good luck with reaching your goal weight! I am totally pulling for you by the way! I am sure making a little bet with it definitely encourages the workouts! We need to do this in my house!
