My Best Friend's Wedding

My Best Friend Brittany's wedding is coming up in a week. My daughter is her flower girl and we are both super excited. I went shopping for a dress last night and love the dress but realized I need to really focus on my diet and exercise this week so that I feel good in the dress. So here is my plan. I'm going to do a shakeology cleanse on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next week. I'm only going to drink water and Shakeology, aka no pop, sugary coffee etc. I'm going to try and do Hip Hop Abs or modified workouts every day! If it works like it usually does I could lose up to 10 pounds in the next week! That would be super exciting and I would feel much better in the dress that I love. This is a reminder that no matter how far in advance you know about a special event you should start preparing right away! You never know how quickly that event will sneak up on you!

I'm mobile people! Well at least in the walking sense! I can't drive for at least another week so that limits my getting out and about, but at least I can walk! I did ask him the dreaded "when can I workout" question and the answer was not what I as hoping for. He said atleast 12 weeks total til I can work out. This means I still have 8 weeks left! Ah how am I going to make it! So I'm doing some research to see if any of the BeachBody programs would allow me to still workout with out any intense plyometrics. I used to be one to find excuses to get out of working out, especially in high school when it came to P.E.. But now I am so stressed out not being able to do anything! I'm getting frustrated! I need to do something or I'm going to go crazy! My try Hip Hop Abs tonight...not remembering any impact moves with that one! And I could always use a focus on my abs! I'm less likely to eat in my house because I hate going to the grocery store more than I have to, so that will be better on controlling my calories and making sure I don't over eat. The downside is I'm more likely to forget my Thyroid medicine and that prevents my metabolism from performing correctly, which prevents weightloss. So right now I'm trying to figure out something to make me remember! I'm really focusing on Personal Development lately. I've been through a lot in the past several years so I'm taking this time to become the person I was meant to be. I want to be the best that I can be for my daughter! Nothing else is more important than that. I also saw a post today from a friend labeled "Goodbye Beautiful Body, Hello Beautiful Baby" people really think it has to be that way?!?! You can so have both! Just look at my friends Tarah Carr and Lauren Knight! They are two hot mommas and have gorgeous babies! You need to be happy with your body so that you don't give your child the wrong ideas about body image! So get to where you want to be now and learn healthy habits so you can teach your child those habits and values! Well sorry for the rambling post I'll try to structure my next ones!
