Congrats, seems like WW really works for you that's awesome. I tried it before but fell off the wagon. Do you do online or the live meetings?
I just did online... the whole taking time to drive to a meeting etc... was not my thing. The online tool helped me during the work weeks as I could access it at the office and it would keep me in check with all the office goodies, ensuring I was eating right and tracking it easily. I learned a lot from just that and the blogs.

I fell off the wagon too LOL! However I do better than I did. Wine is still my major downfall however! tee hee!!!

Hey past brides -

 

Anyone have any luck negotiating with Lomas onsite at the hotel? I want to do votives for our reception, but they are quoting me $3 each - seems ridiculous as I could buy them for 1/3 of the price. My WC told me she didn't have lunch negotiating with them, but that I might have a chance when I'm onsite. We leave in 3 weeks for our wedding, and while I'd rather not add another thing to lug down there, I don't feel like paying $150 to rent little votive candles! Grrr!

 

Any advice would be helpful!

Thanks!

Just the shoulders need to be shortened a bit and of course the length since I am merely 5'4" LOL!

welcome back Amy - loved all your status updates on FB - kept me amused for the week and sounded like you had a fantastic time!

 

I have no idea what all this P90 (??) stuff is about - it must be an American thing but I think I'm going to have to suffer the financial implications and rejoin the gym. I thought I'd be able to do ok on my own (go running and stuff) but it hasn't happened yet! I can't really afford the gym but for the sake of my wedding photos I think I'm going to have to...and am actually now really looking forward to getting back into it :o)

 

no idea why I felt the urge to share, but there you go!! lol

Hi there! I had no luck negotiating on site. My husband tried and tried. They new exactly what the off site coordinators had quoted me and they stuck to it. That was just my experience, hopefully it is different for you!

Thanks Katie! I did update FB a lot didn't I :)

 

Good for you, joining a gym is always my last resort too but it turns out that I work out better and more often with my DVD's (which is what P90X is). Having to drive and park and pay for parking is too much to fathom when comparing it to being able to stay in my living room and pop in a DVD. The downside of that is obviously doing it at home, once I'm at the gym I'm inspired, being at home is not as inspiring.

 

P90X is a program, telling you which DVD to do which day and comes with a whole meal plan and all that.

 

After being on a hiatius for about 2 months, being lazy, sick and on vaca, I'm back to the daily workout and I'm in so much pain... I've been limping for the last 2 day so I think I'll do some upper body stuff tonight :)

 

Good luck Katie!

How long do you recommend doing P90x or Insanity? Should I do one and then take a break and do the other? I know I will get tired of doing it if I do it for the next 9 months! Oh, Amy, I added you on facebook!

Hey Lindz!

 

P90X is 90 days and Insanity is 60... I would take a break in between if I were you but either do some cardio in between or don't take a long break like I did. My break lasted too long and now I'm really paying for it with how sore I am!

 

Awesome! I'll go accept you now :)
