Hi everyone! Hope you are all starting off your Monday nicely! This weekend was such a blast that it was a little difficult to get out of bed this morning, but I managed to get my butt to 6 a.m. spin class, which was so very needed.
After the rehearsal on Thursday, and the wedding on Friday, Bobby and I had a very relaxing rest of the weekend. I got in a nice long run on Sunday before Bobby and I headed to the driving range. He hit some balls (t.w.s.s.) while I read my book.
I’m almost done with the first 50 Shades book. It’s…. good.
I’m actually really enjoying it, but man, some of the chapters are pretty…. intense. Let’s just say I find myself
daydreaming about Christen Grey blushing… a lot.
Anyway, it was a nice little Sunday, but after all these weddings I’m ready to get back to a schedule…. and back on track.
As I’ve mentioned, this spring was jam-packed with weddings and wedding related activities. Between bridal showers, bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and weddings… I’ve had my fair share of indulgences recently. I’ve been eating and drinking much more than usual, and my body is starting to hate me for it. It’s been about 3 months of nonstop celebrating!
I’ve kind of been avoiding getting on the scale because truthfully, I just didn’t want to face it. But then I started noticing that my pants were getting tighter… things are just getting a bit too snug for my liking! I decided to just suck it up and weigh myself. Sure enough, I’ve gained about 6 pounds.
6 pounds in 3 months?! Someone’s been eating too much wedding cake, and that someone is ME.
My reason for posting this is simply to help with my motivation to lose that extra baggage. I need to be held accountable, and I want to be open with my plan of attack. I’m not saying that I’m overweight, but I’m just not at my happy weight.
In one month I’ll be cruising to Bermuda, and I would looove to be back to my happy weight.
So, what do I plan to do?
- Stop boozing my face off every single night of the weekend. I’ve been enjoying way too much wine and cocktails on Fridays, Saturdays, and even Sundays recently. It needs to stop. Drinking leads to snacking… and I don’t need those late night diner runs that have happened a few times over the last few months.
- Cut back on the sweets and processed carbs! I’ve had way too many desserts over these past few months, simple as that.
- Weekend sweat sessions. Being that I’ve been either 1. Doing wedding things all day or 2. Hungover on Saturdays and Sundays recently, I had let my weekend workouts fall to the wayside. No more! Although I’ve kept up with my weekday workouts, I want to make sure to hit the gym at least once during the weekends too.
- Take my vitamins and make sure I’m getting enough fruits and veggies! I love veggies, and recently I’ve been slacking in that department. I’ve also neglected taking my vitamins! In order to help with that, I’ll be taking my PuraVit daily vitamins. I was contacted by the lovely Lindsay from this amazing new company and asked to help spread the word about a giveaway that they will be having. All you have to do is visit their Facebook page and comment on a daily post, and you win a free 30-day set of vitamins for you and 2 of your friends! I urge you to take a look at their page!
What do you do when you feel like you need to get back on track?? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
