    Hi ladies! Well I signed up for a 22K today for motivation (it is in September). I've done 10K's before but never anything longer. Does anyone have any suggestions for training??

      Hey Meliss
      Yes, the wine will get you all the time.  I can totally relate.  Don't sweat it.  You will have so much fun with your friend in LV. 

      Just join me back on the wagon when you return. The 2 Melissa's will succeed.

      I am doing OK....just feeling guilty and want to exercise, but having trouble finding the time!!! 

      I agree, I am only in Vegas for 4 days, so I am going to have me some fun!! :)

      I think its the alcohol thats getting me too....you know, a little glass of wine here and there....OK, maybe a little more ;)

       

      I try to stick to only having a glass or two one night on the weekend....but with my bridesmaid visiting, it seems to be wine night every other night!!!!

      I felt more motivated after reading this today as well, so feeling like I can make it work, and give myself a bit of a break instead of being so hard.

      Lets get back on track together.....the two Melissa's!!!

      :)

          JenK....

           

          That is AMAZING!!! 

          I would google trainging throught "the running room" or something along those lines to get yourself on a training schedule that will make SURE you finisih strong!  That is so great, you should be really proud of yourself for setting such high goals!!!!

          :)

          You'll be looking AND feeling great in time for the big day!!!  :)

                Hi kabee55,

                 

                I guess it depends on when your wedding is. I don't recommend going on an all protein diet until about 2 weeks before your wedding, to shed the last few pounds. Eating all protein, you lack the necessary nutrients your body requires that you get from fruits and veggies. It will also slow your metabolism. And even worse, once you start eating carbs and sugars again, you will most likely gain twice as much weight as you lost. I don't pretend to know what's good for everyone else, but I know from experience going on the Atkins diet a few years back. I lost 15 lbs in about 2 weeks, but then gained back about 25 lbs 3 months later. For me, the best diet is eating small, nutritious meals 5 times a day and complementing it with a balance of weight training and cardio about 4-5 times per week. Doing this, so far I have lost 9 lbs in 4 weeks!

                 

                Good luck with whatever diet you decide to go on!

                  Hi everyone! I just found this thread and I'm so glad I did! (even though I'm not a 2011 bride my date is January 18 2012). I'm trying to get down 27 pounds! So far I'm down 16 and have another 11 to go!

                    Hey JenK!

                    My friend and I did a half marathon (about 22k) together 2 years ago and it was so rewarding! Having a training buddy really kept me motivated!

                    The running room has running groups geared towards all levels if you don't know anyone else running.

                    We ran about 4 or 5 days a week (one day a week we'd do a long run adding on a few kms each week until race day)... You got this!
