Wedding Resolutions

In order to prepare myself mentally and physically for my wedding, I pledge the following:

1. Drink water more than any other beverage (possibly exclusively after my morning coffee).

2. Workout and walk everyday (weather permitting).

This is exactly what I look like. EXACTLY.
3. No (added) sugar.

4. Low carb meals.

5. Fewer processed foods.

6. Lotion everyday.

7. Remove makeup and wash my face every night.

Smearing soap on your face is so fun!

I'd like to keep up the habits after the wedding as well (though I'll probably add a few more drinks into rotation), but I definitely want to keep it up until April's end. Wish me luck!

International Women's Day

Okay! For my first post of the year, barring the one announcing the new year, I'm busting out International Women's Day!

I don't have too much to say about it that hasn't already been said and better than I ever could. You all know I'm a feminist, you should know about the ridiculous, systematic oppression of women worldwide, and you should appreciate the women in your lives!

Sorry I've been MIA for a while, all. Wedding planning, IEP season, general life concerns, and my own personal goal  of Leslie Knopp-ification have kept me from devoting much time to other pursuits. I can't promise it will change as the wedding is still 2 months out, but I didn't want to let this day pass without note. Later, my lovelies!

As you may all recall, blogging fell apart for the second half of 2015. Yeah... that was rough. It wasn't exactly that things were so terrible for me (although my anxiety definitely doesn't play nice), it was more an issue of purpose. I started blogging as an outlet for myself and as my responsibilities increased, it because another obligation because I was putting so much pressure on myself to keep up with it.. Don't get me wrong, I still love writing! But I just started sinking and I cast off the first weight I could think of.

So among my resolutions for the new year is that I will cut myself some slack. I'm leaving the blog schedule as it stands (despite already having broken it....) but if life happens and I can't stick to it, that's okay! I'll still try to keep up with my posting schedule, but the second issue is that I'm out of the habit now so I feel like I don't have the time. I do, I did before! I just have to get back at it. And I'll try to keep you all apprised of the occasions when I can't so you won't be so so sad as you were before. But I will warn you now that there are going to be times this year when CCW is lacking and I'm making my peace with that so you should, too.


Welcome to 2016! We're going to kick ass!
