A walk to the Seattle Japanese garden

Whats up with me lately?
My schedule has been working out perfectly for Todd and I lately! We have been working similar shifts and are getting more days off together. I still have to do a wedding post too! I have a youtube video and pics I want to post. We have been celebrating our marriage and going out a little too much. On top of that I have been skipping too many workouts and I am not biking to work anymore because I transferred to a Safeway closer to my home. All that considered I am back up to 161.4 lbs. This annoys me because that means less than 100 lbs lost since I started my healthy lifestyle change. I am trying to redetermine myself now to eat healthier and meal plan more often. I think I did pretty good with my workouts and meal planning this week so I'm hoping to be back in the 150's for tomorrows Sunday morning weigh in.

A walk to the Seattle Japanese garden
Todd and I decided to go on a walk to the Seattle Japanese Garden. It was a lovely walk! They raised the admission price to $6. Still not bad though. I haven't been in a few years. My favorite part is the pretty little bridge in the center. When you get there you are surrounded by a dozen multi colored koi fish! They linger there because that's were people normally like to feed them. It looks like a fantasy world (If I believed in fairies they would live here). We walked 7.7 miles and burned over 600 calories!

Todd and I.

July 12th,13 Todd and I decided to get our marriage license. It's nice to finally make it "official" and commit to one another. Todd has been with me through so much. I know he loves me for me and he doesn't care about what size I am or about what he can get from me. I know I have probably said this before on my blog but I'm going to say it again. If it wasn't for Todd I don't know if I would have ever broken the cycle of blaming other people for my problems and eating my feelings literally with food. No matter what changes we have been through together we learned from each other. He has always been there for me telling me not to give up on anything I set my mind out to do. I know I relate everything to my weight loss but It's true that I could tell how much he loved me by supporting me and being accommodating to my goal of being healthy. He didn't have to count his calories with me but he did. He didn't have to go on walks or bike rides with me and read articles about health. He didn't have to deal with me saying "No, sorry that's not in my calorie budget" or "I have to go straight to the gym after work". I know that this is getting pretty mushy at this point but I really just wanted to write about how much Todd means to me and how much I really do love him.

Here are some pictures of us from 2011 until now.
