I loved your engagement photos as well and your roots are invisible!
I also feel your pain with the weight issue, I think the idea of spending a fortnight in a bikini with such a large group is quite daunting although it sounds like you're making better progress than me. I started Insanity a few months ago and got through the first month - it was hard work! Work was crazy and I just could't find the time for it then, however Peter and I are determined we're going to start again and see it through this time. We're not specifically aiming to loose weight (although I have a few Christmas pounds which I could happily loose!) we're more looking to tone up and feel a bit more body confident. I'm also just going to try and be generally a bit more health conscious as I have terrible self discipline and eat junk all the time! I was reading last night about eating clean which sounds great although again I just don't know if I could make the time for it. Going to try with less processed foods etc though Every little helps!
Oops I hit submit too soon! Thank you so much Claire for your kind words about the jewelry! It is very different which is why I liked it so much. I am nervous that the colour will be a bit off from the colour of the actual dress (same thing happened with my invitations but I'm trying not to be a stressed bridezilla and just let it go!) but maybe even if it is it won't be the end of the world.
Good for you getting through the first month of Insanity!! That is so tough! I am still doing the Jillian Michaels and bought the banish fat cardio circuits ones today but being at an all inclusive resort eating and drinking like crazy for the next week isn't going to do me much good, lol!! It's awesome that you don't have a lot to lose - Christmas pounds don't count - so I'm sure you'll be able to accomplish your goal no problem. It's really cool that Peter is working on it with you. Tyrel has recently switched to a lower activity job too so he's started trying to work out with me and he eats whatever I make so that just means I have to try to eat healthier lol! Ok well I'd better go finish packing. I'll talk to you guys in a week!! Good luck planning!
