The Bridal Diet
Ladies, holler if you hate the Bridal Diet! You know the one: where your dress is scheduled to come in soon and you think about all of the delicious sundaes, wings and cookies you’ve been munching on for the 6 months in between your purchase and delivery. Is that just me? Please tell me it’s not!
My dress is supposed to be coming in soon and I secretly hope it takes just a little longer than they originally told me. Which at this point, has already happened but I’m not even mad. I’m still trying to take off my Christmas binge weight off…yeah, that’s what I’ll blame it on: Christmas.
For the past month I’ve been doing well on eating right then not doing well on eating right. My motivation is all over the place. Until…my friends and I started planning a quick weekend cruise getaway this summer to celebrate my final days as a single lady. Oh god! A bathing suit!!! That’s worse than fitting into my dress! At least that will hide my tumtum. You better believe once these plans started becoming real that I am all about spinning until my legs fall off.
My new eating routine consists of breakfast smoothies in a magic bullet. That’s right, I bit the bullet and I love it. It’s been amazing to just toss some fruit and yogurt in it in the morning and be on my way. I’m also eating greens until my head explodes. I try to workout at least 4 days a week but that’s been a little iffy but I really try. The other day Pat looked at me dead seriously and said, “You need to add weight lifting to your workout”. I would honestly be so mad at this comment but he’s so right. I can barely help him lift a chair my arms are so weak. So now my friend Jess has convinced me to go to High Intensity Interval Training with her on Tuesday nights. Uhh, kill me now!
Here’s my life in a nutshell right now: salad, a magic bullet and spin class. Yeah, the spin class picture, that’s definitely my cousin Dave dancing with a bike to the Zumba music from the room next door. Can you tell we’re related?
