I know, I can't wear a bathingsuit without the padding, lol I know what you mean when you get a little chilly! It's not fun being so small chested
Welcome to the site!!

But last night I took the dog out for a half hour walk, came home to do some squats, lunges, tricep dips, situps and planks. And I felt SO GOOD afterwards too! I wanted to do a run on the treadmill but our basement is a bit of a disaster so the walk substituted. I actually want to get home and do it all again tonight! SO PUMPED!

So I guess it just me, but after I work out, maybe because I get to hot, but then i get such a migraine. I take a shower, then I am good and I feel the good in working out, feeling pumped. Keep up the good work Meghan, you motivate me!

I can't explain them too well but like either of these...
Cooling towel or cooling headband/bandana. Either that or go the tried and true route of a cold wet towel!! Either way you might find that it keeps your temperature regulated a little more and might help from getting a headache. I have issues with over-heating so having my treadmill in our basement is perfect because its always cooler down there. Make sure you're drinking a good amount of fluids while you work out too because that's a sure-fire way to get a migraine is if your body is dehydrated. I try to drink lots a while before I work out just in case.

April 1st is in exactly 22 weeks (yesterday!). So I'm going to assume that each workout we do is 30min. minimum whether its a run on the treadmill or elliptical, some weight lifting, stair climbing etc. and do some basic math for us all.
# workouts/week = # hours workout time left until April 1
1 workout/wk = 11 hours total workout time (barely more than you spend at work in a day, including some commute time)
2 workout/wk = 22 hours total (still not even time between two breakfast meals)
3 workout/wk = 33 hours total (now we're getting there)
4 workout/wk = 44 hours total (getting the idea here??)
The reason I wanted to point this out is because I wanted to show that we need to be doing our workouts, even a short half hour at home, as frequently as we can because just putting in an hour per week right now means that we're saying that we can't commit the equivalent of ONE FULL DAY to working out and getting in shape for our wedding day. And the memories and pictures from our wedding day will be part of our lives forever!
I will admit that after work in the evenings, I am more than content to sit down and watch tv and let my brain just turn right off. But when I worked out the other night i was almost doing the same thing. I was totally distracted watching tv, except that I was doing my crunches, squats etc on the floor instead of doing nothing on my couch. And I realize that I'm lucky because I don't have kids to worry about but I think we all often forget how easy it is to get that little bit of time in, even while relaxing!
HOW'S THAT FOR MOTIVATION!?!? HAHAHA!!!!!
