Time to get this done - 8 months to go till I marry my best friend

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I've lost 40 lbs in the last three years, (up and down a little in the last two), but now that I'm getting married in 8 months, I'm determined to get this last 30-40 off! I really need to just stick with it, in spite of the stress of moving and trying to plan a wedding from 2,000 miles away. I'm well motivated right now to get up at 5am every day to go to the gym before work. I just hope I can make it through this time without going crazy! I have such an amazing fiancÚ, and he's doing a lot of the planning for me. I'm a very lucky girl. And I want to look hot for him on our big day!

    I'm sure you already look "hot" to him. I've told you before, but I'll tell you again... I'm very happy for you. I know that you'll lose these last few pounds. There are few things more motivating than a wedding! Oh, you'll get it done! Congrats again!

*Cough, cough, sneeze*

Sunday, March 24, 2013

What a crazy month it's been. I came down with the flu when I was in Louisiana (I live in CA) visiting my bf last month (he took great care of me). I was home for a couple of weeks, then had to fly to Virginia for work, then to Louisiana again for a couple days on my way home, and wouldn't you know it - I got sick again. I got home last Sunday night, then on Monday I had to drive 5 hours down to the central coast for work. I got home Wednesday night and it's sooo nice to be home! Still have a cough and head cold, but hoping it goes away soon. I'm exhausted. I know I've gained a few pounds back, but it's so hard to eat well when your traveling. I'm going to try to do some light workouts this week, but I don't want to overdo it. I need to get over this illness. I hope everyone else is doing well!

    You might have caught something on the plane. The recycled air is bad for exposing to you germs.

Halfway there

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Halfway through my crazy month... Back from Alabama last night. Didn't get much sleep on the trip. Tomorrow my sister graduates with her Masters. Yay!!! It's been a long journey and I'm very proud of her. Then a concert in San Francisco tomorrow night with the family, my sister's party on Saturday, then back to the airport on Sunday to fly to Louisiana. I'm so excited about having a whole week with my boyfriend. Even though he'll be at work on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and I'll be working remotely as well, I'm looking forward to having the evenings together and cooking dinner for him. And I told him we would be going for walks when he gets home from work. :) Then we are going to Biloxi on Thursday. Our Christmas present to each other is to go to a spa for massages. I need it! I hope everyone else is doing well and keeping on track during this busy season! emoticon emoticon

My plan for December

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

It's going to be a crazy month. I'm flying to Alabama for work next week, then home for three days, then to Louisiana for a week to see my boyfriend, then home on the 23rd for Christmas. I made it all the way through November with an average of 60 fitness minutes a day. I'm going to try to continue that through December, with at least 20-30 minutes a day. More when I have time. It's going to be tough, but I know I can do it. I always get derailed by the holidays, but not this time! I'll be eating out a lot while traveling, so I may not always have good food choices, but at least I can control how active I am. Sitting on a plane for 4 hours at a time is no fun, but I'm going to do my best to get and stretch frequently. I hope everyone has a healthy month!

    You Can Do It! Be sure to have nuts handy that's a quick healthy choice. You have inspired me to get in daily exercise with no excuses! Thanks! Keep up the good work!

Great plan. Even if you can't follow it perfectly, you will be in so much a better place than if you had no plan.

    You've done so well in November. So much so that you've inspired me to start an exercise streak of my own. So, now is no time to slack off and lose the momentum that you've gained and inspired. Now is time to CONTINUE do what you've been doing. I look forward to your VICTORY report!
