@kimmyd2 I'm so happy I'm not alone! I'm actually on week 15 now, I finished the whole guide and I'm now on week 3 of round two
I feel your pain. The first few weeks were the hardest because you are still trying to find a way to balance everything. But once you have that part figured out it gets much easier which is probably why I haven't felt the need to join a bootcamp or anything like that. Once I'm through with round 2 I will go for BBG 2.0 but at that point in time I will need to join a gym because it requires a lot more equipment.
Another tip that might help is to think of your work out as something you get to do for yourself, not as something else on your to do list. I find this approach helps me stay focused.
Also, I found a great motivator were my progress pictures. Did you take your week 0 pictures? Seeing my own (undeniable) progress gave me more than enough motivation to keep me going. Also I created an account on instagram (caritobbg) to track my progress. I did this for two reasons: 1. Accountability and 2. Inspiration. There are thousands of girls around the world who are doing the program so it feels like we are all in this together. Everyone is supportive and willing to help and I love seeing everyone's progress because it's further proof that it works
Lastly, once you've been doing the program for a while you will start to notice a lot of additional benefits that you weren't expecting. For example, I ran a 10k two weeks ago and beat my personal record by 5 minutes without much training! I was shocked! I was going for just being under my previous time but as I started the race and got into my rhythm and checked my pace I realized I could do it. I was ecstatic! Other things like being able to carry or move things on your own or walk for hours while sightseeing without thinking about it are just a couple of other additional benefits I've noticed.
I know it's a bit of a long answer, but I just want you to know that you can do this. I have never been fit or athletic before in my life. I have always been thin but I've come to realize that thin and fit are two very different things. I couldn't even do a push up when I started! So I know that if I can do it, anyone can
To answer your question, we are planning our wedding for May 2016 so still a long time from now. I'm still in the process of selecting a venue which has been a bit overwhelming
How's planning going on your side?
