Hello! I am getting married in October. Dress fitting at the end of August. I would love to be down 15 more lbs. and have more upper body tone.
I find myself unemployed but I still have three months of membership at my gym that I apparently can't cancel to save $$. So I have decided to leap into a one-month push of weight loss and fitness, assuming that I will probably be out of work for a month, despite the interviews I have had in the last two weeks.
I have the time. Now I simply need to push myself. The only issue is that the gym is a 30 minute drive from home (each way) so I need to be careful about having effective use of the classes and equipment. Another bonus? (sort of) My fiancee will be out of the state for two and a half weeks. So - I have more free time than usual, even above and beyond being unemployed.
So... Here are the things I am currently planning:
1) Use the two personal training sessions asap. (pre-paid with my membership) Learn specific moves for weight-loss and upper body toning.
2) Two hour-long water aerobics classes in a row are taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is my favorite form of exercise and the thing most likely to keep me motivated. I will start going to these religiously.
3) Plan to go in on Wednesday and one day over the weekend to mix up the activity a little. Walk on the treadmill and use the skills the trainer teaches me during these times.
Any other thoughts? I have the resources, less need to eat regular meals with my fiancee out of town, and plenty of time. I am open to suggestions!
