'Trying' to get fit for my wedding 2016
I'm getting married May 2016.
In Feb I decided I needed to lose my Christmas weight for good, I was sick of saying "oh I'll start eating healthy on Monday" haha my favorite phrase.
I started eating Paleo, not sure if you ever heard of it? It's basically no processed food, and no dairy, so i eat fresh healthy food every day. Sounds hard but i promise its great! I stick to it about 70% i used to be about 80% but honestly within 3 weeks I'd lost 8lb and I'd done no exercise. I thought it would be tough as it involved no bread, no pasta, no rice, no cheese!! but i really enjoyed it. I still have a pizza at the weekend if i want, and dark chocolate as a treat instead, so I occasionally have the odd bad food even dairy but not everyday like I used to be. i have almond milk instead of milk and sweet potatoes instead of normal spuds etc. I've gone back to my "natural" weight now i think, I'm 10stone and 5ft 7. still a little wobbly around the belly and arms. need toning up.
i wanted to lose some weight first before i began exercising as in the past i don't notice the difference as you put muscle weight on. i put weight on around my hips and my belly, the worst place to try and lose it! thanks body! i loved carbs!
but my clothes are a bit baggier and ive started exercising 4 times a week. I use the Charlotte Crosby DVD twice a week (it's honestly amazing) and I do my own exercise the other 2 days a week, running, squats, sit ups, press-ups etc. I cant afford the gym and this is convenient as its in my own home. I like to exercise alone too. I am feeling the difference now and feel good. My goal is to keep it up until this time next year, it sounds so far away, but I dont want to look back on my wedding day and wish i didnt have that belly!!
Motivation needed please, anyone in the same situation as me, or been in the same situation? I just want to look my best for the wedding day and the honeymoon for my h2b
i'd love to hear from you if you have anything to say and hopefully we could help support each other in the run up to our big days
