A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

So yesterday was day two at shapes ( with the trainer-sighs- its not what i expected. But its better than what I have been doing lol Basically we did 1 minute cardio then some weights and repeat I mean I heard thats the most effective way to burn fat, but I just feel to advanced for this class. Everyone else is older or have a lot to lose. Im going to continue going since I paid for it, But i went up the to trainer and asked him what I could do on the days we arent with him. His response. " uh, legs.. uh weights .. " Im sure he didnt give me a direct answer cause he wants me to pay him some more, but Im just going to do what I have been doing which is cardio and some weights plsu the 2 days with him. HOpefully after the 8 weeks I see some results.

 

According to the fitnes thing they gave us I should be eating about 1300-1800 calories, and im BARELY making 1000. its not that IM starving myself its just that Im not hungry so I dont eat. So I have to try and add more calories in that are whole calories and good. Ex oatmeal, more protein, veggies etc.

 

I must say tho It feels good to be back in the gym and im ready to kill a workout tonight and this weekend ;)

Try eating high calorie foods, like nuts and avocados that way your calories are higher and you're getting good fats. Also a protein shake if you're not getting enough protein. You should consume about 1g per lb of lean muscle. So I have 97lbs of lean muscle so I try to keep my protein at about 100g a day

NICE.. Yeah its defiantely hard to train my mind that eating "MORE" is goign to thelp. I have been eating more nuts and stuff and avacados trying to up my protein, and I have been drinkin protein shakes but still around 1000 calories Im going to sit down this sunday and try and pre plan all my meals so i get at least 1300 calories. (godo ones) and see what happens. Im back in my gym mode. twice a week with a trainer(tho i doubt his stuff is going to help) and then the other 3 days on my won :) I have to go for my dress fitting by next month. I have no issue with how it fits now just want it to be more loose so i have to take it in :) heheh i will be in my 150's by my wedding

for stomach and abs area I would recommend like planks, ab exercises. crunches bicycle crunches basically anything core. For but. squats squtats and more squats.. lunges ( use heavy weights. I squat with about 50 lbs even tho i know i can do more) jump squats( without weights) Sumo squats( with weights)  you can do floor exercises for your butt where you put a light weight behind your knee and push your leg up the the sky If you google butt exercises there are many :) good luck.

Ran 3 times this week!  Yay!  Goal for this week is the same, but to run for a half an hour vs the 25 mins that I have been.

 

Yesterday was the 2 month mark from our wedding day.  I can't believe it!

 

Keep it up ladies, you are all doing wonderfully!
