Have you exercised today?

Recommended Posts

Attention ladies living in Canada-you totally have to sign up for an exercise program called UBC (ultimate body challenge). My girlfriend who's getting married in August here in Calgary just finished her first session and joined for another-which I'm signed up for. Its a 10 week program-trainers teach you all about healthy eating, you work out 6 days a week and get Sunday's off-which you can eat anything you want that day. The workouts are kickboxing and toning classes. My girlfriend is so toned now its crazy!!! She looks amazing. I start April 14th!!! I can't wait. Apartently you take before and after pic's its a National competition-the winner is picked from the best results from the basis of your before/after pic's. Ladies look into it-it's so worth it.

I need some serious motivation!!! I put myself on a diet July 4th of last year and my goal was to lose 120 pounds by the wedding, April 20th. I have a home gym (bowflex, treadclimber, ablounge and free weights) so I have no excuse and have done really well. I am down 70 pounds ytd... but there is no way I can lose the other 50 in the next three weeks. So... I have reset my goal to lose another 20-30. But, it's been three days and no working out and I have eaten terrible, and I came to the realization that there will probably be no one from my side attending our wedding, so I even had a martini binge last night, lol.

Please girls, help me help me help me!!! My arms still jiggle, we won't even discuss the hiney and oh my goodness the dress fits but its tight. If the Fat Gods are listening, get this twinkie out of my hand and make me crave some lettuce!

First off - WOW! 70 pounds is a lot of weight! You should be soooo proud of yourself! Please share your secrets with us! Second - you only have a few more weeks left - the end is in sight and your FI is going to be cheering you on at the finish line (or the end of the aisle!) Just think - you are going look at these pictures for the REST OF YOUR LIFE - put the twinkie down and go for a walk! Oh yeah - but not before you spill the beans on how you got this far sooo fast - we really want to know!

LOL, yew kin doo itt!!!

I worked for a weight loss center for a while years ago and picked up a bunch of great info and it seems to work. It is very simple but takes a lot of discipline or in my case FEAR. Fear of being in front of my FI family and mine in a bathing suit for a week.

 

This is my routine:

Food:

Breakfast: Protein Oatmeal, Oatmeal Bar, Protein Bar (at least 4 grams of protein/no more than 4 grams of fat)

Lunch: Any sandwhich or salad under 10 grams of fat, preferably with Chicken or Tuna, something with good protein, low fat (you get the idea) or Sushi (my favorite and very high protein/low fat

Dinner: Slim Fast Shake (the shake at night is key)

I only drink water, with an extremely rare alcoholic drink (this is the worse thing for a diet, especially wine)

*Take a good multi vitamin every day

Workout:

I do 20-30 minutes of cardio at least once but preferably twice a day (morning/night) and then a repetition weight work out once a day, alternating upper body and lower body. So, I do 3 sets of 20 reps of upperbody every other day (biceps, triceps, back, shoulder, chest- one excercise for each) and then 3 sets of 20 reps of lowerbody the other days (quads, hamstrings and gluts). And everyday I do at least 100 crunches to work my abs.

I did this consistently since last July and went down 70 pounds. There were probably 4 weeks, one here and there in that time period where I "fell off the wagon" and still was able to do pretty well. I ordered a size 12 dress when I was a 22, and am able to get into my dress. I am still a tight 12 but with about 10 more pounds my dress will fit perfect. So that is what I did. I don't know everything by any means but it has worked really well for me. Being in the weight loss industry I have learned a lot of the myths and things that really work and don't work, which makes it worse that I have waited this long to get in shape.

I didn't mean to go on that long, I am a little long winded, but if anyone has any specific questions, just PM me.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
