I realise (as do you, if you read my posts) that Jeffrey's and my wedding is still 13 months away however after trying on wedding dresses and starting to get fitted, I have decided I need to thin down a bit. I'm not huge or over weight but along with most girls, I have certain areas I'd like more toned. Once a day I've been pedalling my parents exercise bike for 15 - 30mins per day. So far I've managed to do it 6 days per week. It's a bit of an old, noisy beast but I can read and pedal so it does the trick!
I've also dragged out one of dad's lightest weights and am lifting it to help tone my arms.
When I was younger I had many years of piano lessons which I just did nothing with. Over the fast few years Jeff has always tried to encourage me to play the piano again (but I wouldn't). He believed that I could play it but I totally didn't. So recently he gave me a massive shove to start playing again and I agreed. Turns out his belief in me was true and I actually can play!!!! However I believe that God is trying to teach me patience through piano playing as it drives me absolutely CRAZY that I cannot play quickly straight away. I'm very temperamental you know lol!
I've discovered that I can play every single melody line of all the songs in the hymn book (which is a lot of songs.) However I will have to practice very carefully to play all of the parts. Someday I hope to be able to play well enough to accompany my singing.
Tonight is my Poppy's 80th birthday party which I think is a massive milestone so I'll hopefully upload some photos to facebook in the next few days. I'm taking the SLR to get some nice snaps of this day.
