I have approximately 6 months to get in the best shape of my life!!
Don't get me wrong- I am a healthy person. I drink tons of water, eat super healthy (minus that dang sweet tooth!) work out regularly & maintain a consistent weight/pants size, BUT...I want to step it up a little for wedding day. I consistently weighed about 10 lbs less in college than I do now (naturally- I also ran about 50+ miles a week!) and would like to work back toward that. I was a little disappointed in the dress size I had to buy. It's the same as my pants size, but one size smaller sure would have sounded better! I have a few reasons for wanting to drop the extra weight:
1. My body fat percentage is about 5% higher than it needs to be. So, for my personal health.
2. Sometimes when I look at pictures of myself I notice areas that don't photograph well- & I don't want those areas to be an issue when I look back on my wedding album.
3. I want to make sure I'm comfortable/confident in a bathing suit on my honeymoon.
My game plan:
That's all! Doesn't seem so bad, does it? We'll see! I've already started with the protein (called Gold Standard, 100% Whey, double chocolate!) & I can already feel and see a difference. I've lost about 3 lbs in the 2 weeks I've been taking it.
Jonathan has also been working out pretty steady for a while now. That's one of our favorite things to do together, which probably sounds weird. But, we actually enjoy it. We go on long walks (power walks- ha!) in the summer, practice hot yoga in winter, & lift weights all throughout the year. He is really blessed with a great physique and his strength & size increase really fast. I'm a little jealous of how quickly he sees results because I really have to bust my tail, but maybe our kids will get his great metabolism! And really, how can I complain? My fiance is HOT!
