I read this article the other day from a website I frequent often (T-Muscle) titled: The Five Principles to Radical Fat Loss.
This article really has me excited to get back into training mode. I know I said that I wasn't going to cut carbs before the wedding but just thinking about doing it is making me extremely happy and excited!
(Yes, you read that right! I can't WAIT to start cutting carbs again!)
I am also going to start increasing my training frequency. So no more 1-a-day workouts... I'm going to start training smarter and break my workouts into 2 to 3 per day (My body responds VERY WELL to this! I even feel more alert during the day and get better sleep at night when I do this!) This paired with my carb reduced diet is going to have me looking & feeling SMOKIN' on my wedding day!
I finally got a hold of my photographer last night and he said that we could shoot our wedding shots BEFORE the wedding downtown... (and we will forgo the after wedding photoshoot, something that was really stressing me out!) Just knowing this has LIFTED a GIANT weight off my shoulders! I know now that everything else will just fall into place as it should and we only have to wear our wedding costumes and make-up one day, rather then try to recreate the feeling on another day!
I still need to find a hair stylist (I was considering doing my own hair but I want to look extra SPECIAL for my BIG day!) and my make-up artist is already confirmed! I need my seamstress to take a look at my dress to determine if it needs any alterations (if so, they will be minor) and I don't need to buy new shoes as I plan on wearing my clear competition heels! (something old!) But I have been thinking a lot about jewellry... and what about a veil? I think a veil would make me feel like I have long hair! Might be a nice idea!
I called my best friend last night and asked her if she wanted to walk down the aisle to take her place at the front of the 'altar'. She was so excited to get to walk down the aisle, I had no idea! (I'm not having a wedding party, so she "sorta" is my only bridesmaid/Maid of Honor but in reality, she's mainly acting as my witness!) When she asked "What color dress do you want me to buy?" I told her "Something nice and springy!" Since she will be the only colorful one at the front of the altar, it doesn't matter what color she picks! I know she'll look great! (I'm not really going with a theme color, well, not that I have decided on yet!)
My friend that is making my cake is helping me decide on a style. I have narrowed it down to 3 choices:
Cake 1: Simple design & love the orchids!
Cake 2: So original. (I would not do it in blue though.)
Cake 3: I would want the inside brown fondant to look more like chocolate but I really like the square offset tiers and the wainsconing!)
I think I'm leaning towards cake #2 in a different color & with a different topper... What do you think?
