Big Arms, Back Fat...and other grief
Posted 31 December 2009 - 02:03 AM
I honestly tried to be good today - started off the morning with a poached egg, whole grain toast and tea. Then DF and i were running some last minute wedding errands at Michaels and Walmart and DF ran into Walmart to get the paper puffs while I sat in the car with the dog...and low and behold...what does he come out of Walmart with? MCDONALDS!!!!! Ugh...so, being the good eater I am I subsequently ate my entire mcchicken and medium fries, followed by a big tasty diet coke. I am so disappointed in myself.
Tomorrow is New Years Eve (well today now...seeing as how it's midnight) and DF wants to do Fish & Chips - which of course is a favourite of mine.
I miss the metabolism I used to have.
Any advice girls? I'm thinking i'll have to survive off water, salads, lean protiens and a whole lot of exercise for the next two weeks...maybe i can lose five pounds
Wow...sorry this is long...had to vent

1. Cardiovascular exercises or Interval Training to get your heart pumping and raise your metabolism.
2. Cut out the booze - I know it is easy to say but hard to do.
3. Cut down on salt intake.
4. Drink lots of water.
5. Cut out fast food and eat clean (salads, grilled chicken/fish).
6. Cut down on carbohydrates intake (bread, pasta).
At this point, do what you can and don't stress out over it. Hope this helps.

My plan is to cut out the vino and i am also doing a cleanse for two weeks right after the new year. My son did it a few months ago and lost 8 lbs. He was eating a ton of junk and just feeling sluggish for months and he did some research on this body cleanse.
Good Luck hun and try not to stress over it.

I know we have this vision on how we want to look, and when we dont meet those standards get really down on ourselves. Remember that your husband to be loves you for you, and you two are getting married! Having a perfect figure on your wedding day is nice, but in the end there is so much more that matters.
Obviously Im not saying throw everything out the window, just dont beat yourself up over it if you dont lose the 10lbs by your wedding day.
Now Im speaking from experience. I have gained a lot of weight in the last year, some of it due to health problems, and some of it due to personal decisions. I obsessed over it. Literally. And still am after the wedding and seeing the pictures. So bad that when our TTD pictures came back, my husband said, please be kind to yourself. You are beautiful no matter how you look.
I have to admit, it sort of has brought a negative cloud bearing over us. I can see the frustration and sadness in my husband eyes when all I can talk about is how much back fat I had, or big my arms looked. In reality only I noticed those things, everyone else just keeps complimented me on how beautiful I look, and how great we looked as a couple. But of course I have blinders on since Im obsessing so much. What I should focus on is how the amazing day was captured (and it surpassed amazing by miles!), and I am now married to my best friend!
Just thought Id put that out there from someone who has had experience in this subject before

What cleanse are you doing?
I have done hot yoga in the past and it's an awesome class...good idea!
Thanks for the support girls. I'm not going to let it get me down if I don't look "perfect" but I am definately going to cut out any booze, fast food, most carbs(except fruits and vegetables)
Can't wait for the New Year
