So there have been two new additions to the Mojito household as of late:
In a little nook downstairs at our house we have removed what used to be our "office" which now is part of the guest bedroom and replaced it with this not-so-decor friendly eliptical and arrowhead bottle.
Let's face it, when I leave the house at 7:00 am and don't get home until at least 7:00 or 8:00 pm, the LAST thing I want to do is go to the gym. But in all reality I need to get my ass to the gym. At the moment my dress will fit, but I want more then anything to take it down a couple more dress sizes by the big day. I've lost a steady small amount of weight lately but nothing that was going to make dramatic changes. Mr. Mojito and I have started a diet plan together (he's so supportive and doing awesome!) and by moving the eliptical over from my parents house it gives us the chance to still watch our Tivo time, spend some time together, and switch off working out during all of this. Since my gym membership is only $8 a month I don't feel like I can justify cancelling it, it's only $8 and I will never see that rate again if I quit and try to join back up, but at the moment I just don't have the time with work and school. I just want to be happy with how I look not only for the wedding day but also for the Honeymoon!
Next is that awesome Arrowhead bottle, in the pictures shown you might see a lot of copper but I swear there are some quarters in there! We started dropping our spare change in there and even when friends or family come over they empty their pockets for us as well. This clearly isn't a plan to pay for our wedding but we want to use that money for a nice massage or dinner on our Honeymoon cruise, it's that random money that we NEVER miss or even realize is gone. Before I dumped a jar in the bottle when I got it I had at least $20 so I would say we might be close to $30 or $40.
Have you and your fiance made any changes in your lifestyles to help prepare for the big day or honeymoon? What are some ways you are trying to look your best and save some moo-lah?
