The 18-Day Challenge

This is a personal challenge that I have thrown at myself this morning. For 18 days leading to my big day, I am to monitor my food intake (making sure that I eat lesser than usual) so I could fit in my wedding gown have a more decent and desirable figure on my big day. Haha.

So yeah, starting today February 28 up to March 16, 2012, I am gonna be conscious of what I eat. I’ll also try to cut back on carbohydrates which are the building blocks of those excess and unwanted pounds. This challenge is more of a test of my self-control and though I’m not expecting too much, I will still give it my best.

Wedding Guest List

If you’ll ask me what’s the hardest part of wedding planning, I’d say it’s finalizing the guest list. That is more true if you are the type of couple with lots and lots of friends. I guess the key here is balance. You have to know if you could accommodate them all or just a handful of them by looking at your resources.

In our case, the determining factor is the venue’s capacity. You see, we only had a particular number of guests in mind and we booked the venue as soon as we could. Our problem now lies in filling that particular number of people with names. Names of our guests, that is. And that’s when putting names in the guest list comes rolling.

Long Weekend Plans

Long weekend plans? Seriously, I don’t have any. At this point in my life, all I wanna do is take some rest whenever I can. I cherish my ‘me time’ moments and look forward to spending more time with myself doing some things that I’ve long wanted to do but don’t have the time to actually do them.

I have a thousand and one tasks that need to be accomplished with respect to my upcoming wedding. I have tons of things to do with my blogs (I’ve been neglecting most of them lately). I have weekly tasks in the office. I have on-call duties at my part-time work. I have familial responsibilities to attend to. Plus, I have to take care of myself to look good on my big day (which I think is the most important thing of all, haha).

Do You Make a Checklist?

I usually don’t, but when it comes to big tasks that need careful planning and attention, I do. Let’s admit it, checklists are very important to keep us focused and organized when preparing for something, say a big event or activity. We cannot afford to miss out on the important details just because we’ve forgotten about it. We have to remember them, and remembering them means having to list them all down on paper. Or in this age of technology, in our tablet or laptop.

For my wedding, I decided to make a checklist of all the things we need to do. I listed down everything both on paper and in my desktop. I like the organized look of Excel and how easy it can be edited. At the same time, I like my personal handwritten updates and corrections on paper. I dunno with you, but I don’t get confused working on both media.

Two Months To Go

Exactly two months from now, I’ll be walking down the aisle to marry the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. I still can’t believe the date is that near. I mean, we started planning our wedding seriously just two weeks months ago. We’re impulsive like that. Haha. Just kidding.

Right now, I feel like a gps trailer tracking device monitoring the movement of all things concerning our wedding. Well, I guess all bride-to-be’s can be paranoid like that, you know. We all want to have a perfect wedding, if there’s ever such a thing.
